Memory Enhancer. Brahmi has been used by Ayurveda medical practitioners for almost 3000 years. It improves mental functions such as cognition, memory, intelligence, motivation, attention and concentration. It is also used traditionally for treating psychosis, epilepsy and anxiety since it relieves nervous irritation or agitation. Brahmi helps in retention of new information. It significantly improves the speed of visual information processing, learning rate and memory consolidation, thus enhancing learning ability. In some places Brahmi is also used for fevers, as a diuretic and aphrodisiac.
