Brahmi is a creeping vine that grows in Asia that has been used for hundreds of years in Ayurvedic Medicine as a powerful adaptogenic herb.
First of all Brahmi is a very good antioxidant helping to scavenge away free radicals thus helping to prevent heart disease, strokes, arthritis, and other debilitating diseases.
Brahmi works well to increase blood flow into the brain by allowing nitric oxide to be released and thus relaxing vessels that allow increased blood flow… not only in the brain but also helps with sex drive and impotence. Plus it relaxes vessels so it also works well as a bronchodilator thus helping those suffering from asthma, and lower your blood pressure at the same time.
Brahmi is great for mental fatigue, stress, anxiety, irritability, and even for insomnia. Also improves focus, clarity, helps you stay alert, and gets rid of the groggy feeling and brain fog, and at the same time getting rid of jitters and helping to feel calm.
Brahmi enhances memory and studies done with Brahmi show that it does help you retain more information… also works for those suffering from ADHD and ADD. (Brahmi contains chemicals that improve neuro-transmission between brain cells thus helping memory and other conditions.)
Plus in studies Brahmi was a powerful neuroprotective agent, and other studies show that Brahmi can be used to treat Alzheimer’s disease. And when epileptic animals were given Brahmi their condition improved to the point that all symptoms disappeared.
Brahmi also helps with chronic cough, bronchitis, backache, and works as a good diuretic too.
Brahmi is great for stress, helping to relax, and get the body ready for dealing with stress. Plus new studies show that it also helps with depression, picking up your mood and making your day brighter.
In India Brahmi is used as food in soups, salads, and in all kinds of dishes… even pickles. Brahmi is a powerful adaptogenic and some even call it the “Miracle Herb” and to date there are no side effects to Brahmi.
You can buy Brahmi on-line… or buy it at your local health food store.
