Brahmi is one of the oldest traditional ayurvedic medicines in India. historically its use can be traced back more than 3000 years, with references linking it to ancient holy texts like the Charaka Samhita, Atharva-Veda and Susrut-Samhita.
In Ayurveda brahmi is classified as a Medhyarasayana, a drug used to improve memory and intellect thus substantiating its common name which is derived from the word Brahma-creator of the universe, who is also associated with great intellect and responsible for all creative forces in the world. Because the brain is the centre for creative activity, any compound that improves brain health is given the title Brahmi, which has lead to a fair amount of confusion between this herb and gotu kola ( both of which are called brahmi )
All the parts of the plant are used in traditional medicine. Brahmi is most known for its use as a powerful nootropic which can help enhance memory, cognition, mood, and other factors associated with mental functioning. Brahmi is also commonly used to treat anxiety, lack of concentration (ADHD), as a diuretic and as an energizer for the nervous system and the heart.
Brahmi's chemical composition predominantly include hersaponin, apigenin, D-mannitol, monnierasides I-III, plantainoside B and most importantly triterpenoid saponins, noted as bacopasides.
Bacosides are of prime importance within brahmi. They have been shown to enhance nerve impulse transmission, promote the repair of damaged neurons by upregulating neuronal synthesis and kinase activity. The bacosides also aid in the restoration of synaptic activity, which ultimately leads to nerve impulse transmission, this plays a vital role in promoting healthy cognitive functions like attention span, focus, concentration, learning and memory. These Bacosides, bacopasides and various plant sterols provide neuroprotective benefits and reduce oxidative damage, which in tern provides strong support for Alzheimer's patients
This phenomenal herb can also reduce stress and anxiety by elevating your mood, increasing serotonin production and reducing levels of cortisol in the body.
Other proven benefits from using bramhi include reducing of both systolic and diastolic blood pressure levels, epileptic seizures, as well as other forms of mental disease, including bipolar disorder and neuralgia.
