Ayurvedic Herbs for the Mind


Mental rejuvenative herbs or Medhya Rasayanas are used in Ayurveda for addressing imbalances in memory and attention. These herbs provide powerful nourishment to the mind.

Brahmi also referred to as Bacopa monnieri, Herpestis monniera, water hyssop, and “Brahmi,” has been used in the Ayurvedic system of medicine for centuries. Traditionally, it was used as a brain tonic to enhance memory development, learning, and concentration and to provide relief to patients with anxiety or epileptic disorders.

Recent research has focused primarily on Bacopa‘s cognitive-enhancing effects, specifically memory, learning, and concentration, and results support the traditional Ayurvedic claims.
