INGREDIENT AND THEIR PROPERTIES
BRAHMI- is a sanskrit word derived from “Bhagwan Brahma” or “Brahman”. Bhagwan Brahma is the divinity responsible for all of the creative forces in the world and Brahman is the Hindu name given to the universal consciousness. Brahmi literally means the energy (or “Shakti”) of Brahma, consequently brahmi has a lot to offer to the medical world.
Brahmi is a miracle herb used in neurological and psychiatric disorders. In Ayurveda brahmi is used as a brain tonic which rejuvenates the mind and improves brain performance. Its usage for thousands of years stands testimony to its efficacy and safety. Western medicine have limited therapeutic options in certain neurological disorders, so they are increasingly taking help of Brahmi as an effective and safer alternative.
The consumption of Brahmi in vedic texts points out it’s ability to awaken your chakras, which may be understood in the modern way as a balance between the right and left hemispheres of the brain. In doing so you realise “Sat Chit Ananda” which translates into “existence” “Conciousness” and “Bliss”. Therefore this Sattvic herb aids and assists you to give up addictions of all kind, incuding sugar, alchohol and drug abuse.
