Benefits of Brahmi:
Both gotu kola and bacopa pacify vata, pitta, and kapha. In excess, either one may increase vata. Both herbs have a strong affinity for the lymph, blood, nervous tissue, and urinary tract, as well as the circulatory, digestive, and nervous systems. In addition, gotu kola works on the muscle, adipose, and bone tissues whereas bacopa resonates with all of the tissues in the body as well as the channels of elimination. And while some describe bacopa as cooling, others insist that it is in fact, heatingâ€”though still calming to pitta. Relative to gotu kola, letâ€™s just say that bacopa is less cooling and may therefore be preferred in certain types of vata and kapha imbalances. Gotu kola will generally be the better choice where there are strong indications of pitta imbalance. This is, of course, a subtle distinction because both herbs are considered to be tridoshic (balancing to vata, pitta, and kapha) and for specific conditions one may be preferred over the other. Bacopa is likely more suited for overall strengthening, and energy promotion. Gotu kola is purifying and rejuvenatingâ€”especially for pitta. Both are said to support longevity. Gotu kola is an appetizer while bacopa suppresses the appetite; bacopa is therefore often taken with digestives such as ginger or cardamom.In addition to the benefits described below, both herbs known as brahmi are very supportive of the jointsâ€”clearing toxins while promoting comfort and freedom of movement.
