Nootropic Herbs for Brain Health

What’s on your mind?

There has been so much talk about holistic health modalities but often our brain health becomes overlooked…With increasing numbers of cognitive decline, nootropics is becoming a trendy topic. In this article we will touch on nootropics and what are some of our trusted herbal nootropic allies.

The word “Nootropic” is usually referred to pharmaceuticals, however we believe this is an important term to merge into the world of plant medicine as it describes a classification of herbal constituents that aid our mental health. Thus, Nootropic herbs are herbs that promote neurological functionality and overall health of the brain. It’s important to note that not all nootropics are equivalent and there is no cure all in the world of herbalism. Hence, we advise to develop an understanding of how each individual plant works is essential before using nootropics in your herbal practice.

Here are a few of our trusted allies:

Gotu Kola

Considered an “elixir of life” for over 2,000 years, it is traditionally praised for its value in increasing memory, longevity, and intelligence. Commonly used to help promote mental clarity and cognitive function while reducing fatigue, gotu kola is a prized herb for brain health.

Rhodiola

Also known as “golden root,” rhodiola qualifies as both a nootropic and adaptogenic herb. One of rhodiola’s prized uses is for boosting endurance, stamina, and productivity, both physically and mentally

Lions Mane

Known for its ability to improve memory and boost concentration all whilst protecting your nervous system. Studies have shown that Lions Mane also is a general restorative due to its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and immunomodulating properties.

Bacopa

Bacopa is a premier nootropic herb that has been used for its cognitive-enhancing effects for ages because it helps to “revitalize” brain activity while removing blockages in the nervous system.

What a download and we are only skimming the surface of this magical flora. We encourage you to go deeper with the plants that call to you and remember not one herb has a cure for all and it is important to explore underlying issues rather than searching for an herbal bandaid.
