Know About The Magical Ayurvedic Herb ‘Bramhi’
New Delhi: Brahmi is an herb well known for its memory-enhancing property. Brahmi leaves help to manage cold, chest congestion, and bronchitis by clearing out the mucus from the air passages which helps ease breathing. It also reduces pain and inflammation in the throat and respiratory tract due to its anti-inflammatory property. Here are some benefits you must know about this magical plant.
- Brahmi is useful to manage the symptoms of anxiety. According to Ayurveda, Vata governs all the movement and actions of the body and nervous system respectively. Anxiety is mainly due to Vata imbalance. Brahmi helps to balance Vata and gives a calming effect on the nervous system.
- Brahmi is rich in antioxidants that protect the brain cells. During an epileptic attack, the production and activity of certain genes and their proteins get reduced. Brahmi stimulates these genes, proteins, and pathways thereby reversing the probable cause and effects of epilepsy.
- Brahmi helps to reduce the symptoms of asthma. According to Ayurveda, the main doshas involved in asthma are Vata and Kapha. The vitiated ‘Vata’ combines with deranged ‘Kapha dosha’ in the lungs causing obstruction in the respiratory passage. This results in difficulty in the breath. This condition is known as Swas Roga or Asthma. Brahmi helps to calm Vata-Kapha and removes excess mucus from the lungs. This gives relief from the symptoms of asthma.
- Brahmi has the property of managing intestinal spasms. It may provide temporary relief from the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), however, it does not treat IBS permanently
