Brahmi, regarded as ‘the giver of supreme
wisdom’, is one of the most powerful nervine and rejuvenative herbs in the
ayurvedic material medica. Brahmi, however, is the common name of two different
herbs. One bears the Latin name Bacopa Monnieri, and the other, Centella
Asiatica or commonly Gotu Kola. While both are independently regarded for the
nerve soothing and rejuvenative properties, each has a distinct set of effects
that renders them individually useful for slightly diverse applications. Bacopa
Monnieri is known for its very bitter taste very powerful cleansing properties.
It is generally used to increase intelligence and longevity, and to treat
anxiety, depression, Alzheimer’s, and epilepsy. Gotu Kola, however, though sweeter
in taste is similarly used to support mind function, memory, longevity, and aid
against their degeneration, but it further has blood purifying properties which
render it effective against a number of skin conditions, and certain types of
fevers. These two plants having similar effects and a common name are often
confused. To avoid this confusion, they will here be referred to by their
alternate names. Perhaps a look into their various methods and indications of
application will further help to distinguish them.
Brahmi Churna (bacopa monnieri) is ground leaves from the bacopa plant. It is used both internally and externally. Externally, it can be applied as a paste or in oil to relieve the pain and swelling of the joints due to injury or arthritis. Internally, it is one of the best tonics for the nerves and is widely used in Ayurvedic treatments epilepsy and hysteria. Due to its inherent strength it can be very toxic at high doses, and so is generally steeped in water as with tea as opposed to a decoction in which the herb is boiled in water for some time. This mild infusion can be very bitter and it is recommended to be taken with honey. In this form, bacopa delivers all the effects for which it is famous. It improves the memory and intelligence, soothes the nerves, relieves headaches, cools the body, relieving burning and pain, and is even slightly diuretic, helping to cleanse the kidneys and blood of toxins and excess salts.
Brahmi Churna (Centella
asiatica / gotu kola) is the ground leaves from the gotu kola plant. It is also used both internally and externally, but has slightly different effects. Gotu kola is a tonic and rejuvenative for Pitta, and used externally it helps to relieve burning and itching in chronic skin conditions. Internally, its blood purifying effect helps to alleviate a wide range of skin conditions from the very serious like leprosy and syphilis to the less serious like eczema and psoriasis. For such conditions, combined internal and external application can augment these effects. Gotu kola taken in a mild infusion or as a tea is also soothing to the nerves, supportive of cognitive function, and an aid against aging and memory loss. It further supports the immune system and the adrenal glands by both feeding and cleansing them. Taken in as a decoction in milk it is especially soothing to the nerves, and can be a great tonic for anxiety, nervousness, and headache.
