Memory Boosting Herbs

Brahmi

Known to improve mental functions such as cognition, memory, intelligence, motivation, attention, and concentration. Has been used to treat disorders involving anxiety, intellect, and poor memory.

Studies in humans have shown that chronic administration of Brahmi results in improvements in working memory, visual information processing, learning rate and anxiety.

In India, Brahmi is currently recognized as being effective in the treatment of mental illness and epilepsy. In certain parts of India, Brahmi is believed to be an aphrodisiac; in Sri Lanka, under the name of Loonooweella, Brahmi is prescribed for fevers5; in the Philippines, it is used as a diuretic.
