Gotu kola, regarded in China as one of the “miracle elixirs of life” has also been an important part of Ayurvedic medicine as a tool for increasing psychic sensitivity and rejuvenating the spirit. It is believed to heighten mental facilities and strengthen the immune system. Gotu kola increases the synthesis of GABA from Glutamate, changing the overall function of the body to a more peaceful state of mind.
Bacopa monnieri, otherwise known as the legendary Brahmi, is a sacred Ayurvedic herb that promotes a thoughtful state of mind while relaxing and protecting the body. Brahmi is the foremost tonic for the nervous system and general cognition. Brahmi, when taken over the long term, can help to reverse deficits in the Serotonin system caused by pharmaceutical anti-depressant or illicit drug use.
The recommended dosage is 1/2 tsp – 1 tbsp per cup of tea.
