Brahmi, scientifically Bacopa Monnieri, natural nootropic, one of the boons of Ayurveda is highly effective in supporting focus, cognition, memory, increasing communication between neurons and reducing anxiety & stress. Modern researchers have clearly mentioned about the role of Brahmi as a treatment in several neurological diseases including epilepsy, dementia, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer's disease.

Active constituents in Brahmi include alkaloids, sterols, saponins, stigmasterol, beta-sitosterol etc. The most important alkaloids present in Brahmi are brahmine, nicotinine, and herpestine. The bacosides present in Brahmi have an anti-depressant activity.

The Brahmi not only affects the brain but also helps in:

    • promoting liver health
    • protection against neonatal hypoglycemia
    • cures systemic redness and swelling
    • maintains normal blood pressure
    • strong antioxidant activity.

Brahmi has a significant role in bringing the 3 neurotransmitters, serotonin, dopamine and GABA into balance. It also increases the production of acetylcholine, which is helpful for memory and learning. Parkinson’s disease affecting the production of dopamine can be brought into control using Brahmi’s role in balancing dopamine and discouraging neural degeneration. Brahmi also has a significant role in improving the neuronal networking thus improving the higher mental functioning.

Even though Brahmi is a cure, sometimes, when taken at inappropriate levels causes many side effects which are not so welcoming. If the dosage of Brahmi is too large for a particular individual, it may cause a headache. Brahmi also has the power of relaxing the nervous system. But if the level of intake of Brahmi increases it can even lead to the loss of consciousness. Brahmi is not advised in people with low heart rate conditions, bradycardia. The gut-brain theory explains the disorientation of brain due to gut issues and vice versa. Hence, any issue related to the brain cannot just be cured by Brahmi, instead, the root cause of the problem has to be sought out. Also, any gut problem if prevalent has to be cured first. Brahmi, when used in the ample quantity in the right proportions can help the higher order mental functioning thus bringing the balance of the mind and the brain.
