BRAHMI... The Anxiety Reliever and Memory Aid

Brahmi is used to aid learning and memory, it is also used for anxiety, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), allergic conditions, and irritable bowel syndrome. People have also taken Brahmi to treat backache, hoarseness, mental illness, Alzheimer's, epilepsy, joint pain, and sexual performance problems in both men and women. It is also sometimes used as a “nerve tonic,” “heart tonic,” and as a “water pill.” 

Brahmi contains chemicals that might improve thinking and learning. There is some evidence to suggest that it might relax muscles in the blood vessels, airways, and the small intestine. It might also act as a tranquilizer to promote relaxation as well as a pain reliever.

Brahmi has also been used in the starting stages of diabetes. It is said that the fresh juice of the whole plant can be consumed to increase the quantity of breast milk and also improves its quality. It is also said to provides strength and acts as a rejuvenator.
