You had a great point to make in your office meeting after your colleague is done talking, but when your turn comes, you forget the point. You make a mental note to put the house keys in your laptop bag, but end up leaving them behind on the dining table yet again. You can’t remember whether you ate or not. There is a deadline at hand, but you just can’t focus on the task.
One-off occurrences of such instances should not worry you – they simply indicate that your brain is feeling fuzzy and you need to slow down a bit. But if they are happening on a fairly regular basis, it might be an indication of deterioration of brain cells.
This can happen due to an underlying health condition, head injuries or the side effects of some medication you are on. Lifestyle factors can also cause them. Among them, stress, alcoholism, lack of physical activity, sleep deprivation and excessive consumption of fatty foods are the prominent ones. Making lifestyle changes can make a significant difference in addressing these issues. A number of ayurvedic remedies to improve memory and concentration are also available which work as natural brain boosters.
Why use Sache Wellness’s superpowder for memory and concentration?
In Ayurveda, a special class of herbs, called medhya herbs exist which are considered especially useful for the mind. Brahmi (Bacopa monnieri) and Sankhpushpi (Convolvulus pluricaulis) belong to this group. Infact they are so popular that you will easily find brahmi powder and sankhpushpi syrup at your local pharmacist.
Brahmi derives its name from Lord Brahma, who represents the supreme state of consciousness. True to the inspiration for its name, the herb increases the production of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter which supports brain functions like memory, cognition, and attention. It also helps nerve endings to grow and branch out in areas of the brain responsible for memory formation, which increases the volume and speed of communication between nerves. Owing to these properties, it is believed to an effective brain supplement for students.
Sankhpushpi or Aloeweed, on the other hand, regulates proper blood supply to the brain, which helps to keep the mind calm and enhances problem-solving ability, even under situations of day-to-day stress.Ayurveda also recommends synergistic formulations of these herbs with other supporting and balancing herbs from the medhya group, where Ashwagandha finds a special mention. Studies have shown that it not only increases spatial and visual memory, but also prevents nerve cell degeneration and boosts resistance to stress. It works particularly well for individuals in high stress work environments, who are expected to be at the top of their mental potential at all times.
