    Bacopa monnieri
      Vitamins / Supplements
      Gotu Kola


This herb is quite well known now and I would consider it at par with Gotu Kola and Vinpocetine. It works wonders for me before an intense study session or a social occasion. Along with b-complex it improves speech so does the gotu kola but not vinpocetine.

If vinpocetine is taken on its own it doesn't help me much with speech but ideas and words flow like a river in my mind. Brahmi needs to be taken regularly for a few days to reach its full effect, but that doesn't mean that I don't get a kick on the first day.

There is another very fine cocktail called [brand name containing 40+ vitamins, minerals, herbs, and other ingredients], which I fave found to be the best cocktail ever! But I keep recycling between Brahmi, Gotu Kola and Vinpocetine depending on the occasion and it always helps me to rise to it!

By the way Brahmi and Gotu Kola has potent effect on sex drive....a bonus :)
