Discover the magic of the Top Five brain-boosting foods in Ayurveda:
Brahmi, known since the 6th century AD, sharpens intelligence and combats mental disorders with its antioxidant and cell-protective properties.
Ashwagandha, used for 6000 years as a Rasayana, enhances memory by boosting brain function and intelligence through increased acetylcholine levels.
Shankhpushpi: Dating back to 200 BC in Ayurvedic texts, Shankhpushpi is an ancient herb for cognitive and digestive wellness. Known as the “Bringer of Good Health and Good Fortune,” this milky-white flowering plant, Morning Glory, supports longevity, memory, intellect, and nervous system function, with flowers resembling a conch shell.
Jatamansi: Traditional records date N. jatamansi’s medicinal use in India to Vedic times (500–1000 BCE). Jatamansi enhances brain function by acting as an antioxidant, preventing cell damage, improving memory, and calming the brain to manage anxiety and insomnia. In Ayurveda, it’s known to prevent wrinkles due to its Snigdha (oily) nature.
Ghorbach: Acorus calamus, or Sweet Flag, is an Asian plant introduced to Europe in the 16th century. In Hindi, it’s Bach or Gorbach; in Sanskrit, Vacha. Historically used in herbal medicine, Vacha stimulates expression and intelligence. Ayurveda hails it as a rejuvenating herb for the nervous system due to its bitter taste and dried form usage.
Kashmiri Saffron: The “Red Gold” of Kashmir. With a history of over 3500 years, Kashmiri Saffron holds promise in reducing Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s risks. Its consumption is linked to mood enhancement and mental well-being, attributed to increased serotonin production in the brain.
These proven herbs date back to over 6000 BC, offering multifaceted benefits for the brain, sleep, and bodily functions.
Did You Know?
Digestion and brain function are closely linked through the gut-brain axis. A healthy gut supports better brain health, impacting mood, cognition, and mental well-being. Inflammation from poor digestion can affect memory, concentration, and emotions. Prioritizing gut health through nutrition can improve overall brain function.
The remaining ingredients also play important roles. For instance, Lakadong turmeric with high curcumin content is anti-inflammatory and aids digestion. Cumin and Mulethi promote better digestion and gut health and boost saliva, while black pepper contains the bioactive compound piperine, enhancing nutrient absorption in the body.
