Brahmi, is a small creeping herb that is native to Asia but now cultivated in other tropical and temperate swampy parts of Africa and the US. Centella asiatica is most popularly known by its Sri Lankan name:
Gotu Kola. It is a aquatic plant and is easily found growing along streams, in rice paddy fields and other boggy surroundings. Centella Asiatica or Gotu Kola is a renowned mental rejuvenative traditionally used to promote the intellect, improve mental performance, and support proper functioning of the nervous system.
Centella Asiatica plant has distinctive round leaves, with a strong resemblance to cerebellum. This is an interesting fact since this conforms with the
doctrine of signatures that says herbs treat the part of the body that they resemble.
Brahmi has been used to refer two different Ayurvedic herbs - Bacopa monnieri and Centella asiatica. Brahmi is a Sanskrit word that literally means the feminine essence of universal awareness as well as the promoter of subtle mindfulness. They are also both highly revered for their enhancing properties for the nervous system. If we delve deeper, we find that the dual use of the name
Brahmi can be understood in geographical terms; in southern India,
brahmi refers to Bacopa monnieri; while in Northern India,
brahmi refers to Centella asiatica.
Centella Asiatica or Gotu Kola is regarded as one of the best brain tonics in the Ayurveda. It has been used in Asia for thousands of years, both as a medicine as well as delectable leafy vegetable. This luscious green herb is a favorite in helping to improve mindfulness, revitalize consciousness, and maintain a sharp intellect. It also supports healthy circulation to the brain, which supports cognitive functioning such as memory and concentration. Additionally, as a natural blood purifier and nervine, Gotu Kola is particularly supportive in soothing skin irritations caused by stress, making it an excellent choice for massaging the scalp and feet.
