Herbal Supplements Name : Brahmi

Description

It is used interchangeably with Hydrocotyle asiatica. It is also known by the names of Gotu Kola (does not contain cola or caffeine, as its name would suggest), Indian Pennywort, Chi-hsing and Pai Kuo. It has been in use for almost 3000 years in Unani, Ayurvedic and Chinese medicines. It is a classic brain and nervine tonic. It contains many nutrients that support the bodyís vitality and feed the nervous system, including vitamins A, B, E and K, and magnesium. Brahmi is considered the main rejuvenating herb for nerve and brain cells and, therefore, has played a very important role in Ayurvedic therapies for the treatment of cognitive disorders of aging. Countless studies have shown Brahmi helps improve protein activity and protein synthesis, especially in brain cells, which can increase intelligence, longevity and memory and decrease senility and aging. It has tranquillising effects but, unlike synthetic sedatives which often have side effects of dulling the mind, it actually improves mental clarity. It is also used as an antianxiety agent, to calm restlessness in children, and to cure several mental disorders. It is most commonly used as a nervine tonic that enhances learning and academic performance, improves mental alertness, sharpens short-term and long-term memory, rectifies speech disorders, increase concentration and intellectual ability in children.

DIETARY ADVICE : Avoid carbonated drinks, caffeine, sugar, smoking, illicit drugs and alcohol. Tobacco products decrease blood flow to the brain and raises blood pressure. Illicit drugs such as marijuana and cocaine, over the long term, gradually decrease memory. Reduce your stress. Decrease your use of non-prescription medications. Overuse of medications may be the single biggest cause of memory loss or confusion in older adults. Seek treatment for depression if you think that you may be depressed. Memory loss may be a symptom of depression.

Eat a balanced, low-fat diet with ample proteins will protect your nervous system. Eat plenty of green vegetables, nuts and seeds. Drink plenty of water and get plenty of rest. Physical activity also appears to contribute to intelligence, increasing memory retention, improving some types of problem-solving ability, and helping relieve stress. Play stimulating mind games, such as Scrabble, or do a crossword puzzle.
