Brahmi – A Herbal Remedy
Ayurveda has been using herbal medicine since ancient times, and the benefits such medicine provides are unprecedented. Naturally grown and formulated, these medicines are chemical-free and hardly have any side effects.
One such wonder drug is Brahmi or Bacopa monnieri, a therapeutic herb with numerous benefits. Ayurvedic medical practitioners have been using it for centuries to treat anxiety, epilepsy, and other neurodegenerative disorders.
Brahmi is also a powerful anti-oxidant. Research suggests that free radicals are linked to many chronic conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers. An active compound called bacosides in Brahmi helps the body get rid of these free radicals, thus improving overall health.
Another benefit this drug has is the reduction in stress levels. It reduces cortisol levels, a hormone directly associated with anxiety and fat gain
Pro-inflammatory enzymes and cytokines are inhibited by their anti-inflammatory effects, and they may help reduce ADHD symptoms, such as restlessness and self-control.
In some cases, bacosides, the active family of chemicals found in Bacopa monnieri, were found to kill aggressive brain tumor cells and prevent the development of breast and colon cancer cells.
In addition to the above-mentioned benefits, Brahmi is a natural medicine which can be easily included in your treatment without any fear of harmful side effects.
