Named after one of the highest states of consciousness (Brahman or God consciousness), Brahmi/ Mandukaparni is one of the most powerful brain tonics in the Ayurveda.
The leaf of the plant resembles the cerebellum and is traditionally used to promote memory and intelligence and to relax the central nervous system.
Gotu Kola is said to develop the crown chakra, the energy center at the top of the head and to balance the right and left hemispheres of the brain, which the leaf is said to resemble.
