Brain Support

Herbs for the brain work in various ways. Some herbs are renowned for their calming effect. They are "sattvic" in nature. Others enhance alertness and perceptivity; some are neuroregenerative, like cat's claw, astragalus, and ashwagandha. Tamarind helps to remove fluoride and reactivate the ossified pineal gland. The goal is to clear the brain and central nervous systems of parasites, bacteria, viruses, and heavy metal deposits, reduce edema in the brain, and promote memory and awareness without stress. Our newest product in Brahmi Elixir. It relies on both gotu kola and bacopa, the two Brahmis, and other herbs that support the brain and mind.

 

Ashwagandha Extract, 2 oz.

Ashwagandha holds a premier place in the Ayurvedic pharmacopeia. It is both a rasayana herb, meaning one that aids the quality of life and longevity, as well as an adaptogen, an herb that improves our ability to cope with stress. This herb has a multitude of uses but to understand how research of prized Indian herbs is conducted, it is useful to consider how well an herb protects the patient from damaging changes when exposed to chemical, metallic, or radioactive hazards and how successfully the herb protects against free radicals. Ashwagandha is very high on the list of such valuable herbs, but it is most often used to improve male potency and endurance.

Tamarind Extract, 2 oz.

This extract was added with the intention of offering a remedy for intoxication, but it was soon learned that the fruit has countless additional benefits. Tamarind is originally from Africa but is grown throughout the Caribbean and Asia as well as on some Pacific Islands. The bulk of imports come from the Antilles.

Tamarind is used mainly to improve digestion but the mechanism whereby it achieves this power seems to imply that tamarind is anti-inflammatory and detoxifying, being used for such serious poisoning as that caused by ingesting datura. It restores sensation in certain kinds of paralysis. It is also used for gingivitis as well as to promote excretion of fluoride.
