In Ayurveda, Brahmi falls under the category of Medhya Sasayana, a group of plants with medicinal properties which contain benefits specifically to boost memory and intellect. This property is also referred to as nootropic medication. This super herb is also known for improving memory and treating epilepsy & sleeplessness. It is often times used as an anxiolytic which means to relieve anxiety. When it comes to memory enhancement, the focus is predominantly on minimizing forgetfulness rather than on facilitating learning.
