The AYURVEDIC Way to Improve Attention
With all that we have going on in life, it’s easy to get distracted and forget things. We’re stressed, and it takes a toll on our memory and concentration. As we get ready for back to school, we see all that our kids have to deal with, too.
We can take a cue from yogis who use Gotu Kola to improve their meditation practice. Gotu Kola, also known as Brahmi or Indian Pennywort, is a traditional Ayurvedic Herb that has been used for centuries as a tonic for overall brain and nervous system support. Gotu Kola improves circulation and oxygen flow to the brain.
Clinical studies have shown that Gotu Kola improves concentration; one study showed student test scores improved after taking the herb. Gotu Kola has also been shown to have a calming affect on individuals prone to anxiety, and may also be useful in treating depression. In addition, Gotu Kola has been used to relieve high blood pressure and help the body defend against various toxins.
