Three Effective Natural Alternatives To Adderall And Their Benefits

3rd September 2021

3rd September 2021

By Beth Shelper

From keeping track of your work responsibilities, remembering what day of the week we’re on, staying on top of those mundane house chores and remaining clued-up on the latest Love Island happenings, there’s a lot going on in day-to-day life. Not to mention everything in between.

We’re exhausted just thinking about it.

All of the above (and many, many other responsibilities), it can be pretty hard to focus on the important tasks at hand in our lives. Maybe you’re a uni student fighting through your final deadlines, or you’re struggling at work with tons of paperwork to get through. It can be hard to maintain concertation sometimes, right? Right.

Throw in low mood along with all of that, and for some people, the struggles of depression… and functioning (let alone being productive) can be a pretty big feat, and one that can feel somewhat impossible sometimes. And for these reasons, many people visit their doctor and are prescribed medications such as Adderall to help.

What is Adderall?

Adderall is widely known as a stimulant for the Central Nervous System (CNS) that is a combination of two generic prescribed drugs: Amphetamine and Dextroamphetamine. The drug is traditionally prescribed to treat low mood, as well as improving your concentration and focus.

Whilst Adderall is revolutionary for many people and assists those who need it brilliantly when it comes to staying focussed, especially in patients who are struggling with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, which is otherwise known as ADHD, due to the nature of the drug, some patients experience some pretty unwanted side effects.

Side effects of Adderall

When taking prescribed medication or supplements it’s important to follow the recommended daily dose to ensure you are avoiding the potential experience of side effects.

  • Sleeping problems
  • Stomach-ache
  • Cold toes
  • Shortness of breath
  • Unwarranted weight loss
  • Hives
  • Limb numbness

Whilst these side effects aren’t common, it is important to remain aware of them, and these side effects are influential in many people’s decision to research Adderall equivalents and make the switch to a natural, Adderall alternative.

What are the best replacements for Adderall?

So, if you’re currently taking Adderall and are suffering with one (or all) of the above side effects of the drug, or if you’re looking for a natural way to gain the benefits that Adderall provides from an Adderall alternative, you’re in the right place…

Check out these three Adderall replacements below… they’re some of the best Adderall replacements around (and they’re all featured in one of our award-winning products) so you can add them to your basket and get your focus on ASAP.

It’s as easy as that!

  1. The Focus Capsules

One of the best replacements for Adderall can be found right here at Innermost. The Focus Capsules are a daily nootropic designed to increase focus and concentration, naturally.

Developed with research-backed ingredients such as Rhodiola Rosea, Siberian Ginseng and L-Tyrosine, this supplement is sure to boost your cognitive performance and is a great natural Adderall replacement.

  1. Ashwagandha

Featured in The Relax Capsules, Ashwagandha (sometimes referred to as Winter Cherry or Indian Ginseng, if you’re not familiar with it) is an adaptogen, which means that it’s a great natural way to deal with stress. But that’s not all, the herb has also been shown to have great benefits when it comes to improving focus and concentration.

Ashwagandha has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine practices for these benefits, and can be found in both Indian and Northern Africa. Ashwagandha is a great natural supplementation that presents many health benefits that improves an increase in brain functionality, making the herb a great natural Adderall alternative. 

  1. L-Theanine

Last but not least, our final natural Adderall replacement is L-Theanine.

You may recognise L-Theanine if you’re a regular reader of Insight, but for those of you that are new here, L-Theanine is a naturally occurring amino acid that can also be found in tea leaves. Found in both The Relax Capsules and The Tone Capsules here at Innermost, the amino acid has been found to decrease stress levels and help users focus.

Should I use Adderall replacements if it has been prescribed by my doctor?

As with all changes to prescription medication, we absolutely urge you to discuss this with your GP. Always follow your doctor’s recommendations as they are clued up on your personal situation, your health record


Whilst prescription smart drugs such as Adderall have a notable and somewhat extreme effect, this does not mean that they are always the best option when treating ailments and issues such as concentration and focus.

By researching the best Adderall alternatives and finding natural yet effective Adderall equivalents, the risk of the side effects noted above reduces.

Here at Innermost, we believe that natural alternatives are a great step when considering your overall wellbeing, but as always, please follow the advice and recommendations of your doctor before making any changes to your prescribed medication.
