Brahmi has been revered for centuries because of its role in promoting nervous system rejuvenation and regeneration. Also known as Bacopa, or by its epithets "mountain of wisdom" or "Somavati" (containing soma or nectar), Brahmi has been shown to offer nootropic properties: enhancing cognitive functions, memory, creativity, and will power.
Used globally but most notably in India and South Asia, Brahmi slows the brain aging process through the removal of toxins and blockages in the nervous system and regeneration of neural tissues. Often used in geographical areas of rigorous meditation practices, this herb supports concentration, focus, and mental clarity. It also aids in recovery from exhaustion and stress.
Brahmi has been used in treating Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, Asperger’s syndrome, autism, insomnia, schizophrenia, and depression. In addition to its extensive ability to promote neural balance and relieve stress, Brahmi is also a purifier, helping to cleanse the blood, and strengthen the immune system.
