Brahmi in Ayurveda is commonly used to enhance memory. Name 'Brahmi' is derived from ' Brahma' , the Hindu God of creation. A double blind randomized trial on the effect of Brahmi on human memory was done by Roodennys et al. In this trial seventy six adults aged between 40 and 65 years were recruited to test various memory functions. Their results demonstrated a significant effect of Brahmi on a test for the retention of new information.
Brahmi is generally considered safe. Dr Kohli's Brahmi capsules contains 300 mg of pure Brahmi. Recommend dose is one capsule three times a day.
