BRAHMI

BRAHMI

Bacopa monnieri, a plant commonly used in Ayurvedic medicine, has an age-old reputation for being an effective and powerful herb helpful for memory and combating stress. Bacopa monnieri, known to most as Brahmi, acts as an adaptogen; which means it helps the body adapt to new or stressful situations. The following 9 facts show the power and versatility of this therapeutic plant.
1. Supports the Brain
As people age, it’s common for age-related brain degradation to happen. The active compounds in Brahmi, known as bacosides, are beginning to be evaluated for their effects on the brain and human health. Some research has shown the compounds in Brahmi topositively influence brain cells that prompt the regeneration of brain tissue. [1] In one animal study, long-term supplementation with bacosides showed therapeutic value against the rapid degeneration associated with Alzheimer’s disease. [2] Hopefully more will continue to explore its potential benefits for brain health.
2. Promotes Liver Health
The brain is not the only organ that benefits from Brahmi’s health-promoting compounds. The liver is the body’s main detoxifying organ, and studies suggest Brahmi may be useful for encouraging liver function following toxin damage. [3] With the daily onslaught of toxins in our environment and food, it’s no wonder so many seeksafe, natural compounds that support proper liver function.
3. Protection Against Neonatal Hypoglycemia
When it comes to newborn infants, low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) can result in serious and immediate brain damage, inducing future motor and cognitive impairment. Studies have found bacosides to be highly-active compounds that exhibit neuron-protecting effects in hypoglycemic infants. Therefore, many researchers believe that Brahmi extracts may be effective for protecting newborn brains against hypoglycemia-induced brain damage. [4]
4. Positively Impacts Opioid Dependence
Doctors prescribe (and sometimes over-prescribe) opioids, like morphine and oxycodone, for pain management. Although these drugs are effective, their highly-addictive nature is a massive downside. Seventy-seven percent of chronic pain patients also suffer from depression and face an added risk of addiction. Researchers have discovered that bacosides may be helpful for enhancing the benefits of morphine while reducing the “high”, thus decreasing the risk for dependence. [5] [6] In addition, studies indicate that bacosides offer protective benefits for organs commonly affected by opiate toxicity. [7]
5. Fights Systemic Redness and Swelling
Any illness or irritation can cause redness and swelling in the body. No location more dangerous than the brain. Brahmi may be helpful at fighting this. Research supports its use for managing systemic redness in the brain caused by the body’s autoimmune response . [8] Much of the research is ongoing; however, the emerging data offers hope for new therapies in the treatment of chronic discomfort and redness.
6. Encourages Normal Blood Pressure
Brahmi has been shown to increase the utilization of nitric oxide in the body and also appears to encourage vascular muscle function, two benefits that positively influence normal blood pressure. [9] While promoting normal blood pressure is not one of Brahmi’s most well-known uses, the herb may still provide a valuable, natural approach to those seeking this benefit.
7. Strong Antioxidant Activity
Antioxidants… can we get too many of them? Many researchers are evaluating natural plants, herbs, and foods for their antioxidant potential and findings indicate that Brahmi is a good one. It provides protection against oxidative damage, a type of cellular damage caused by free radicals. [10] The herb has also been shown to enhance antioxidant activity in other organs, like the kidneys. [11]
8. Organic is Best…
As with any plant or herb, it’s a good idea to know its source in order to decrease the likelihood of consuming pesticides, GMO’s, and pollutants. If Brahmi has a caveat, it’s that it’s very absorbent and can easily accumulate pollutants and other contaminants, such as arsenic, if grown in or around contaminated areas. In more than one case, Brahmi samples taken from a semi-urban area contained noticeable levels of lead, copper, cadmium, and zinc which exceeded safe thresholds. [12] [13] Conclusion? Only purchase organic or wild crafted Brahmi!
9. …And so is Fresh!
When cooking with herbs, fresh herbs offer substantial taste benefits. It turns out that the same is true for your health; as researchers have determined that fresh Brahmi is more potent in its healthy compounds. [14]

Seabuckthorn
Legend said that before 12 century BC, the ancient Greeks were surprised to find that some sick horses let loose to die a natural death, became strong and energetic again. The source of this magic was traced to sea buckthorn. They named the shrub Hippophae Rhamnoides, meaning trees that make horse shine. Modern research has confirmed the said property and found much more nutritive and pharmacological values of its bark, fruit, leaves and especially its oils.
Immunity Enhancer, Antioxidant and Defer Aging (named as life oil, liquid gold)
Out of the more than 190 nutrients and bioactive substances sea buckthorn oil provides, many are considered immune building factors, such as linolenic acid, vitamins E, A, carotene, polyphenols, flavonoids and trace elements including iron, copper, manganese, selenium, etc. This group of well-coordinated and well-proportioned factors regulates and maintains the immune system in different processes and at different levels, strengthens the body’s natural defense and helps natural healing, sea buckthorn oil is a pure natural antioxidant store. Its rich content of flavonoids, glucosides, phenols, terpenes, vitamins E, A, C, ß-carotene, and trace elements are all antioxidants with very low molecular weight to neutralize free radicals. They help activate superoxide dismutase whose role in the body is to eliminate free radicals and mutant and dead cells caused by free radicals, and increase phagocytosis of macrophage.
Gastrointestinal, Lung and Liver Health
The health promoting effects of Seabuckthorn are direct and clear. The concerted and mutual promoting actions of the 190 some elements have positive effects on the endocrine, circulation, immune, and nervous systems and this in turn creates a most favorable condition for the digestive system. The oil provides a protective coating inside the mouth, stomach, intestines and duodenum, thus protecting mucosa and its normal functions. The protective and soothing properties of ß-sitosterol-ß-D-glucosides, ursolic acid and betaine, promote natural healing. ß-carotene, vitamin E, unsaturated fatty acids stimulate cell metabolism at site and help natural healing. Seabuckthorn has remarkable inhibiting effects on gastric acid and abnormal increase of gastric proteinase, thus keeping the digestive system healthy and ease constipation. As seabuckthorn increases metabolism of cholesterol and fat, it reduces liver damage by alcohol, paracetamol and carbon tetrachloride, and removes fat and toxins from the liver. It also detoxifies the respiratory system to clear mucus and stop coughing.
Cerebral-cardiovascular Health
Sea buckthorn oil actively reduces blood fat level, nurtures the blood vessels. Of the rich unsaturated fatty acids, oleic acid (Omega 9) reduces cholesterol; linoleic acid (Omega 6) regulates blood pressure and reduces serum cholesterol, linolenic acid (Omega 3) tends to maintain healthy blood pressure, dissolves accumulated fat and promote metabolism and regulate sugar level. Together they facilitate normal blood circulation. Sitosterol is one of the materials forming cell membrane and it stimulates metabolism. It combines cholesterol in foods and get rejected, and thus reducing serum cholesterol content. Vitamin E promotes metabolism, prevents oxidation of high-density (bad) cholesterol in the serum, thus inhibiting and reducing cholesterol settlement along the blood vessel wall. Phosphatides and triterpenoids inhibit cholesterol formation and help its removal. Sea buckthorn oil has tonic effects to cerebral cardiovascular systems. Total flavonoids increase blood flow of the coronary artery and supply nutrients to heart muscles, lower oxygen consumption, strengthen muscle contraction, thus improving the heart function and increasing anti-hypoxia ability of the system. Sitosterols soften the blood vessels, and increase their tenacity, improve its elasticity. Vitamins E and other antioxidants remove wastes including peroxides and ailing and dead cells from the blood, and avoid damages the wastes may do to the artery walls. 5-serotonin and betaine protect the cerebral cardiovascular functions by comprehensive regulation and coordination of the nervous, endocrine and the immune systems.
Skin Health
Free fatty acids, carbohydrates, phytosterol, phosphatide, vitamins E and A, carotenoids in sea buckthorn oil are organically combined together providing more protection and nutrition to the skin. The free fatty acids are easily absorbed by the skin, which it helps keep slightly acidic, and inhibits unhealthy microbes. Linoleic acid (Omega 6), palmitoleic acid (Omega 7) and linolenic acid (Omega 3) promote healing of tissue damage, and the hydrocarbon prevents excessive moisture loss of the skin, softens and lubricates the skin and keep it smooth and fair. Sitosterol improves microcirculation in the skin. Phosphatide forms a protective film to prevent moisture loss and keep invaders at bay, and acts both as a moisture regulator and an antioxidant against wrinkles. The miracle properties of stimulation to tissue regeneration and epithelial natural healing but without leaving scars, make sea buckthorn oil a most welcome remedy for burn, cuts, frostbites, bed sores, wounds, etc.

Adhatoda leaf powder showed a considerable degree of anti-ulcer activity in experimental rats when compared with controls. The highest degree of activity was observed in the ethanol-induced ulceration model [15] . These results suggest that in addition to its classically established pharmacological activities, Adhatoda vasica has immense potential as an anti-ulcer agent. Further research showed that a syrup of Adhatoda improved symptoms of dyspepsia

The leaves, roots and flowers of Adhatoda vasica also called vasa or vasaka were used extensively in traditional Indian medicine for thousands of years to treat respiratory disorders such as asthma.

Adhatoda vasica is considered useful in treating bronchitis, tuberculosis and other lung and bronchiole disorders.

A decoction of the leaves may be used as an herbal treatment for cough and other symptoms of colds. The soothing action helps irritation in the throat and the expectorant will help loosen phlegm deposits in the airway which makes adhatoda a good remedy for sore throat.

A poultice of the leaves may be applied to wounds for their antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Some believe the poultice is also helpful in relieving rheumatic symptoms when applied to joints.

It has been used to control both internal and external bleeding such as peptic ulcers, hemorrhoids and bleeding gums.

In Ayurvedic medicine, adhatoda vasica is used for a multitude of disorders including; leprosy, blood disorders, heart troubles, fever, vomiting, loss of memory, leucoderma, jaundice, tumors, mouth troubles, sore-eye and gonorrhea.

This herb is known for its antispasmodic, expectorant and blood-purifying qualities.

A juice made from the leaves was used as a treatment for diarrhea and dysentery, and in southern India the powdered leaves were used to treat malaria. Additionally, it was used as a folk medicine to speed delivery during childbirth.
