Brahmi has many effects. The South Asian plant helps to calm down but at the same time promotes the brain’s memory power. Read here how the medicinal herb can help you and how you should take it.
This is the effect of Brahmi
The effect of Brahmi lies in the improvement of mental performance and the protection of nerve cells. The plant is actually called Bacopa Monnieri and is used in Ayurvedic medicine.
- Brahmi comes from South Asia and Southeast Asia and is now increasingly being cultivated in India and China. Translated, the plant means “small fat leaf”.
- In Germany, Bacopa Monnieri is known as a natural brain doping agent.
- The plant is stimulating and calming at the same time. Therefore, it helps with nervousness and anxiety disorders. However, the plant does not cause fatigue.
- If you take the plant for more than twelve weeks, this can have a positive effect on your short- and long-term memory. This effect is especially useful for older people.
- Like many other plants, Brahmi reduces fever and is generally anti-inflammatory.
- You can take Brahmi in the form of tea or capsules. The latter is more recommended.
- Brahmi tea is less effective and not particularly tasty.
- As a capsule, the daily dosage of the extract is 200 to 500 mg. The higher the backside content of the powder, the smaller the dosage should be. This is especially important if you want to boost your performance with it.
- Before taking Brahmi, talk to your doctor about the duration and dosage of the medicinal plant. In combination with other medications or existing diseases, side effects such as stomach pain and headaches can occur.
- Avoid overdosing: If you take too much Brahmi, nausea, headaches, and diarrhea will also occur here.
