What is Brahmi?

As we get older, it’s sometimes harder to remember things. Focus and concentration can be challenging when you are performing a task. Nutrients are crucial to optimum brain function.

Aside from eating a healthy diet, certain herbs can help enhance cognitive function. One of these natural herbs is Brahmi. 

What Is Brahmi? 

Ayurvedic practitioners have been using Brahmi for centuries to help with cognitive performance, anxiety, and stress. The Bacopa Monnieri (Brahmi) plant is native to India, Australia, Africa, Europe, Asia, North and South America. You may know it as weather hyssop. 

Bacopa Monnieri contains potent compounds called bacosides. The bacosides give Brahmi its benefits. 

The Benefits of Brahmi 

Antioxidants: Cells incur damage from molecules called free radicals. Antioxidants help protect your cells from free radical damage. There is a link between free radicals and many chronic health conditions.

Brain function: Several studies help solidify Brahmi’s enhancement of brain function. One study showed that adults taking 300mg of Brahmi each day had significant improvements in memory, learning, and increased visual processing.

Another study found that adults who took 300-600mg of Brahmi extract could process information faster and had improved memory and learning.

Anxiety and Stress: Studies indicate that Brahmi may also help prevent stress and anxiety. Research suggests that Bacopa Monnieri helps enhance mood and lowers cortisol levels (the hormone linked to stress).

Other Natural Brain Enhancers

There are a few other plants that also help with cognitive function.

● Ginseng helps with mental stamina.

● Ginkgo helps uplift the mind.

● Green Tea is another powerful antioxidant that helps protect cells from damage.

It can be a challenge getting all these nutrients in one day. Why not take them together in a delicious tonic? Ginseng, Ginkgo & Brahmi Toniccontains all the above-mentioned brain-enhancing herbs along with blueberry, another power food.
