Brahmi for Brain Power
Clinical Herbalist Reviewed on April 8, 2011 by Paulina Nelega, RH
Introduced to the west from India, Brahmi (Bacopa herb) has been used for thousands of years as a brain tonic. Brahmi is best known for improving the memory, sharpening mental acuity, and increasing concentration. It calms the mind and alleviates symptoms of stress, anxiety, and nervous debility, and encourages a more positive outlook.
Brahmi literally means “that which gives knowledge of Supreme Reality.” Though it may not provide you that in just one cup of tea, it can help preserve mental function so that you retain and remember what you learn!
