Plant uses: A traditional Ayurvedic herb used to support brain and nerve function. It is a wonderful herb to help support cognitive health for people of all ages, but particularly those who are over sixty. Its neuro-regenerative properties make Brahmi a wise option for anyone who is burned out, or whose nervous system feels frazzled.
