Brain and Memory Tonic Ingredients
Brain and Memory Tonic includes the following ingredients: Gotu Kola herb (Centella Asiatica), Ginkgo leaf (Ginkgo biloba), Skullcap flowering herb (Scutellaria lateriflora), Sage leaf (Salvia officinalis), Rosemary leafy tips (Rosmarinus officinalis), certified organic grain alcohol, distilled water and vegetable glycerine.
Brain and Memory Tonic is a liquid blend of five herbal extracts, particularly Gotu Kola, Ginkgo Biloba, Skullcap, Sage and Rosemary. Gotu Kola is one of the traditional Ayurvedic herbal ingredients to which modern research has given increasing importance over the past years. Its uses include a large number of respiratory infections, wounds, skin conditions or mental and cognitive disorders.
Modern research found that Gotu Kola is rich in Triterpenoids, compounds which take part in the transmission process of nerve signals in the brain, hence improving the function of the central nervous system, decreasing anxiety and increasing mental function. Gotu Kola is caffeine free, so it does not over-stimulate the brain. Side effects may include fatigue, drowsiness, stomach upset and nausea.
Although research on Skullcap is still in its early stages, the plant is commonly seen in herbal remedies that target insomnia or sleep disorders, anxiety, and memory and cognitive functions, due to its ability to improve blood flow in the brain.
Online consumer testimonials are not available; hence an evaluation of the formula’s effectiveness is not possible. The recommended dose is 30 to 40 drops in a little water taken 2-3 times a day.
