The following information is available in the various website on the methodology of functions of the Brahmi are follows :
Brahmi contains chemicals that might enhance 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 have activity as a tranquilizer and pain reliever.
Also called Bacopa monniera or water hyssop, brahmi is a water-loving marsh plant that grows natively in India and its leaves and stems are used in medicinal preparations. You might take brahmi to improve your mental function and memory. Consult your doctor before taking brahmi to discuss potential health dangers and drug interactions.
Brahmi contains the saponins called bacosides, which appear to affect certain neurotransmitters in the brain. Brahmi seems to increase the effects of serotonin, gamma aminobutyric acid or “GABA” and acetylcholine, says the University of Michigan Health System. Brahmi’s effects on these neurotransmitters, along with its antioxidant and neuroprotective actions in the brain, likely account for the herb’s medicinal benefits. They include enhancing mental function and easing anxiety and depression. Brahmi might also have relaxant effects on certain muscles.
You might take brahmi to help to treat allergies, asthma, ulcers and hypothyroidism, but the herb is best known for its uses in treating mental conditions, says the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Brahmi may help to improve mental function and memory in people with forms of dementia such as Alzheimer’s disease and age-related cognitive decline or ARCD. Brahmi could also help if you have depression, anxiety, drug addiction or epilepsy. No conclusive scientific evidence supports the use of brahmi for treating any medical condition, however.
However, I had been a regular consumer of Brahmi leaves , while i was in Khammam, during the visit to the Water filters at Danavaigudem. Basing on the experience i am writing this article .
As far as my knowledge goes, Brahmi has high content of fibre, which helps to remove the impurities in the body. Thus, consumption of oxygen by the end organs would be decreased and same is used by brain.It naturally increases the efficiency of brain.
Brahmi tastes bitter. As per the nature of that taste it allows a person to face any humiliation. It increases the mechanism to mitigate the depression and anxiety.
On chewing leaves for some time, it tastes vagaru. This taste will increase the capacity of the brain.
Thus, Brahmi use to help us to be intelligent.
