Mental Rejuvenative that Supports Healthy Brain and Nervous System Function
Those familiar with "the doctrine of signatures" may not find it surprising that a plant with a leaf that resembles a cerebellum would have a special affinity for the brain. Brahmi is a renowned mental rejuvenative traditionally used to promote the intellect, enhance mental performance, and support proper function of the nervous system. The leaves are highly sattvic (pure, harmonious) and historically have been eaten by yogis to assist in meditation. Brahmi is said to improve concentration, memory, and alertness. It is a natural blood purifier and helps support clear, healthy skin. Brahmi is also famous for promoting healthy, lustrous hair and is often applied as an oil for this purpose. The herb is cooling and relaxing, making it an excellent tonic for pitta. It also calms vata in the mind and reduces excess kapha in the body. A truly amazing herb that lives up to its name, which means "the energy of universal consciousness."
