Brahmi (Centella asiatica and Bacopa monnieri)

If you ever decided to search for the elixir of life, you need look no further than this creeping, perennial herb with tiny white-purplish flowers with four or five petals, named after the Hindu Creator god, Brahma.  Treasured by Ayurvedic practitioners for more than 3000 years, this powerful plant is a reservoir of nitric oxide that plays crucial role in cellular activity.  Nitric oxide (NO) is a molecule produced by the endothelium(interior lining) of the arteries.  When the NO is produced the vessels relax and dilate allowing more oxygen flow in the body.  This is exactly what we need for the brain when it comes to memory and concentration.  Students who take brahmi before the exam can have better results.  Brahmi is also incredibly helpful with anxiety and stress issues.  Chewing a few leaves of brahmi helps with anti-inflammatory problems due to stress or lack of rest.  The antioxidants contained in brahmi are essential in promoting healthy lifestyle.  They help eliminate free radicals that are detrimental to our health.  Brahmi is a great immune system and respiratory system booster if taken regularly.  It assists the immune system fighting off bacteria and defending against tumors.  It helps reducing fever and stimulates cardiac activity.  Additionally it increases energy and stamina and promotes longevity.
