Bacopa monnieri / Brahmi / Water Hyssop Supplement
Brahmi is an Ayurvedic medicine and popular nootropic that reduces inflammation in the body and in the brain. It is a valuable herbal supplement for the treatment of all kinds of addictions. It is particularly important for recovering opioid and heroin addicts. Bacopa monnieri can reverse damage done to the brain and kidneys through opioid use when given at a dosage of 40mg/kg, and it can also protect these organs from future damage should the addict relapse on the opioid drug.
Brahmi also performs the following functions:
- Improves memory
- Treats epilepsy
- Reduces anxiety
- Relieves stress
- Improves overall brain function
- Lowers blood pressure levels
Brahmi works well with Ashwagandha for the treatment of alcohol addiction specifically.
If you are currently taking an antidepressant or pain relief medication, consult with a physician before taking Bacopa monnieri because these medications and Brahmi may sometimes interact negatively. Brahmi should also be avoided by women who are pregnant.
