(NaturalNews) It doesn't matter that an ancient traditional herb has been used successfully for hundreds of years. It usually takes testing by western scientists to bring the herb's value to our attention, even while Big Pharma tries to conceal it. Such is the case with the ancient Ayurvedic herb used as tonic for the brain, which goes by either name, brahmi or bacopa.

Standard Western Tests

Two recent western human trials have shown brahmi or bacopa to improve memory recall and learning ability as well as to reduce anxiety and relieve tension. One trial was conducted in Australia, while three institutions collaborated in a more recent USA human study: The National College of Natural Medicine, Science University, and Oregon Health.

Both double-blind studies involved human subjects over a 12 week period. Each person demonstrated a marked improvement of recall and comprehension despite using small dosages. What was surprising was that anxiety and depression also diminished greatly among the subjects undergoing these trials.

Since brahmi (bacopa) is a safe herb, larger doses can be used by those having too many "senior moments", memory lapses, brain fog. It even diminishes depression or anxiety while handling those other issues. Interestingly, Ayurvedic doctors have prescribed this herb for the heart as well as the brain and nervous system.

Other tests have confirmed that brahmi (bacopa) improves one's focus, memory, and learning ability while simultaneously calming the mind.

A Pharmaceutical Comparison

Because brahmi has exhibited anti-Parkinson's activity, an animal study was set up to compare brahmi with a pharmaceutical used to treat Parkinson's Disease, deprenyl. It was discovered that deprenyl enhanced antioxidant activity exclusively in the rodents' frontal lobes. But brahmi increased antioxidant activity in almost all of the brain, including that memory storage section known as the hippocampus.

Bacosides A and B, or bacosides I and II, have been isolated from brahmi. Both chemicals improve neuro-transmission among brain cells. They also repair damaged neurons and improve nerve synapse performance.
Brahmi or bacopa also increases serotonin production. That's the calming influence. Big Pharma claims deprenyl can expand one's life expectancy. It appears that brahmi or bacopa can do that and more. It is certainly safer and less expensive.

Brahmi (bacopa) is not addictive. After centuries of use by Ayurvedic practitioners as well as increased modern western use, there are no recorded side effects. Current users report better sleep or even relief from insomnia, which is often related to anxiety or depression. Brahmi has also been used successfully to assist individuals with ADD.

Bottom Line

If you're stressed, sleepless, foggy and groggy, getting dim or losing your memory, this is one herb that has been proven to handle all of these symptoms. It's not expensive and doesn't create side effects. One can usually expect results after a few weeks of daily use.

There is no overpriced quick fix synthetic drug that will calm jangled nerves while simultaneously enhancing memory, learning ability, and mental clarity and focus. Brahmi is safe to use by anyone, regardless of age or gender. It can be ordered inexpensively as a powder or in capsules.
