The main issue with synthetic ingredients is that you don’t always get what you pay for. In reality, synthetic ingredients are well known for their low absorption, poor bioavailability, and the fact that they drain the body’s reserves of other minerals and vitamins (e.g., cofactors) required for proper absorption of other nutrients.
At BrainReference we recognize that dietary supplements can be the source of many allergic responses either due to cross-contamination with high-allergen compounds during the manufacturing process or because they incorporate ingredients obtained from high-risk allergenic foods (milk, eggs, or fish).
Companies with less integrity will use dangerous fillers as a “grease or lube” to aid in easier and faster production. Artificial dyes and colors are used to make supplements more appealing to the eye. Coatings are added to make capsules easier to swallow. How do these fillers impact your body and health?
Independent testing labs are not associated with the producing company, ingredients supplier, the company whose name appears on the product, or with the consumer. This means independent testing labs have no vested interest in the result of the testing and are less likely to “dry lab” or manipulate test results for self-serving reasons.

Herbal Cure India Brahmi Ingredients
Herbal Cure India Brahmi includes the following ingredient: Brahmi (Bacopa Monnieri).
Herbal Cure India Brahmi is designed to enhance brain performance and be a nerve tonic. The main active ingredient, Brahmi or Bacopa Monnieri originates in the Ayurvedic Indian medicine system, over 3000 years ago.
It is used to treat or help prevent a wide spectrum of different health conditions, starting with respiratory system problems (bronchitis, coughs, asthma), to brain health (mental deterioration of the elderly, forgetfulness, confused and cloudy thoughts, mental fatigue), to stress and depression (including post natal depression). Although extensively researched, the work mechanism is only partially understood
It seems that Brahmi contains the saponins called bacosides. It is these saponins that appear to affect certain key neurotransmitters in the brain such as Serotonin, Gamma Aminobutyric acid (GABA) and Acetylcholine. Hence, Brahmi’s effects on these neurotransmitters plus its antioxidant properties may account for the herb’s medicinal benefits.
Consumer reviews are not publicly available. The manufacturer mentions no side effects of the formula whatsoever; however nausea, weakness and dry mouth have been reported when taking Brahmi.
The recommended daily dosage is 4 capsules, twice in the morning and twice in the afternoon. The manufacturer claims results in case of mild memory problems should be visible in as fast as 3-4 days.
- The main active ingredient has been used for thousands of years;
- Organic natural ingredient (Bacopa plant);
- Fast acting formula (results in 3-4 days for mild memory problems);
- Safe for children.
- Lack of detailed information on the manufacturer;
- Modern research on Bacopa is still insufficient;
