Caffeine

A systematic review of 13 randomized trials of persons with jet lag or shift work disorder found that caffeine significantly improved concept formation, reasoning, memory, orientation, attention, and perception when compared to placebo. Caffeine was better than placebo in preventing errors and was similarly effective in comparison to other active interventions such as using modafinil or bright light.
