    I got brahmi ghrita..I have doubt for that. My brahmi ghrita’s colour is not green side.Brahmi has natural green colour so should brahmi ghrita have green colour or it should be only white colour of ghee ?

    • Colour variations are common in Ayurveda products. The same medicine of two different batches from same company might have different colours. Because, everytime we can not get same quality of herbs with similar specifications. I suggest you to not to worry much about this.

      • bunty rahmaniac says:

        Yes Dr,As you said colour may be different from batch to batch..And I added quarter tsp brahmi ghrita into hot milk (not too hot) and milk got brahmi’s natural colour …

  2. Can I give it to my daughter who has athetoid cerebral palsy and is 4 yrs old

    • Yes, it can be beneficial. Try with 5 drops at bed time, before food with lukewarm milk / warm water. IF she develops any indigestion, consult your Ayurveda doctor.

  3. Hello Doctor,

    I have purchased Brahmi Ghritam for me. The fluid inside the bottle is very thick and i am not able to swallow it. Its from Arya Vaidya Sala ..what should i do ?.

    • Hello Nil, This is normal. You can heat it in a water bath for two minutes. Or you can take 1 – 2 pea size dose of the solid Brahmi Ghrita (use a small spoon). Drink a cup of warm water after taking this.

      • Dr Hebbar, I am taking it now for 10 days. I felt like after a few days that its works on my mental and focus. Now I feel like it doesn’t work not like before. I am taking it because of mentally tiredness and was too much on my thinking. Also have panic and stress. I feel its little bit better.. But just wanna now after how long time its works best?
        Seems to be very good for physicologic problems.
        So gonna need some more time to get better?
        Thanks a lot..

  4. Do we have to prescribe a doctor to have brahmi grhta? I am a student and I want to take it so tat helps me in memory enhancement!

  5. Vijayasankar says:

    Hi Sir, I am undergoing treatment for seronegative arthritis and lumbar prolapse, in this treatment I was now given this brahmi ghritam… May I know in which way it I’ll help me…

  6. i have very hectic schedule, lots of mind games work…at night i feel my head very heavy and i wake up suddenly while asleep, by snoring heavy..
    so do i start brahmi ghrita for my condition with or without medical supervision?

    • You can take half a teaspoon, just before your morning tea / coffee for a week time to see if it helps. If it works, then you can take it for up to two months and then stop it.

      • anil saini says:

        Thanks Dr. for sharing your wisdom. i have a question for brahmi ghrit. why we can not continue for a longer time as nowadays in environment of stress & pollution we get a lot of wear & tear on a physical & mental level…?

        • I do not recommend any medicine for long term use.
          Regarding stress – our body and mind have their own mechanism to handle stress. So, we should make them stronger by Pranayama, healthy food choices, exercise etc. We should always rate the natural measures higher over medicines.
          Only when natural measures are not sufficient, then medicine, therapies etc can be adopted.

          Same thing for pollution. Regular use of turmeric, cardamom, ginger, pepper etc spices in dishes, Pranayama, nasya procedures etc should be the long term plan.

  7. DR, i have purchased Brahmi Ghrita from Kotakal Aryavaidyasala Outlet.What is the usage pattern and dosage?

    • If you are healthy, still want to use Brahmi ghrita, then take half a teaspoon of this, just before your morning cup of coffee / tea / milk. You can take it for up to two months. Note that you have to have some hot drink or at least hot water, after taking this herbal brain tonic ghee.

    • namaste,
      it depends the place of manufacture. because always in south many a times brahmi is replaced by mandookaparni which is also having similar effect as that of brahmi. otherwise sharbat is the one which is sugary drink and juice is the as it is extract of brahmi.

  43. Priyanka Shelke says:

    Hello Sir,
    I watched Balaji Tambe’s program on TV in which he told to give bramhalin grut to infants. My daughter is 2.5 years old and she is all good with speech, logic, learning, observations. I want to know will this product be given to her? and how much? Other query is, if she starts taking it, will warm water do after that dose coz she is just 2.5yrs and will not drink hot water or milk. she takes very mild milk or water. So how shall I proceed with it? Please reply and thanks in advance for your valuable time

    • yes of course it can be given in a very little dose of about a quarter tea spoon. but it is to be given with warm water only to facilitate digestion, not too hot, and not at all with milk it will cause indigestion. other wise you can simply give her fresh brahmi juice extract from its fresh leaves daily.

  44. I am a lactating mother of my 2 1/2 month old…..can I take brahmi ghritha or fresh brahmin juice…..if yes please suggest the amount…..can I give fresh brahmi juice to my little one also…..

      you can take fresh brahmi juice also, but for your little one it is better to start after 6 months.

  58. Srilatha says:

    Can you take Brahmi Gritham for more than 4 months? I started using Brahmi Gritham for my daughter and it seems to be working. I am afraid to stop though. Is it ok to continue? What happens if you keep giving it to her? Are there any negative effects if we give it for more time?

    • After 4 months of usage, it is best to reduce the dose by 25% in successive months and eventually stop it.
      In a small dose of just 5 drops a day, Brahmi ghrita can be continued for 4 – 6 months, under doctor’s guidance.
      There are no big side effects. But it is not good to make the child dependent on any medicine for a long term.

      • Srilatha says:

        Thank you Doctor. Can you please tell me what kind of side effects will be there if you used it for a long time? I used it for my daughter for more than an year now. One of my friends suggested Brahmi Gritham and I ordered online and started using it may be 10 drops morning and evening. Also, are there any withdrawal symptoms I should be worried about after I stop? Please advise.

        • Hi, there are no withdrawal effects and there are no big side effects. But after one year of use, it is better to taper down the dose and stop it.
          I do not recommend continuing any medicine, without need.

I am taking Ashwagandha it is good but can’t overcome tremors. Is bhrami better than Ashwagandha? Please give me proper guidance what should I do as I need it badly. Thank u so much.

Dear Sir, my 2 year old son’s head circumference is detected around 2.5 cm less than WHO standards(according to doctor) and doctor is willing to give him a syrup that contains some “fish oil” for DHA etc, my son’s behavior is normal and even claverer according to his age..we follow strict vegetarian diet..can Brahmi Ghrit be beneficial for my son ..and by any chance can we avoid this “fish oil” medicine??(can Brahmi Ghrit substitute that?)

    • Hi, I agree with your doctor on fish oil advice. I suggest you to go ahead with his advice. Along with that, Brahmi ghrita – 2 ml per day, can be given to your son. All the best.

  90. Hi doctor.
    This along with Brahmi Vati has been recommended for my 6 year old son who is autistic. We have been taking this for a while but sometimes have a break in between before new medicines arrive. My understanding is that he will need these for a few years. You mention that this should not be used long term.
    Thanking you in advance
    Radhika

    • Better to use it for 2 months, give a gap of one month. This way, both can be continued for 12 – 18 months.
      You can avoid Brahmi Ghrita during extreme winter and raining seasons.

  91. Hello Doctor
    Thanks for responding to all questions. My son who is autistic is taking this. Is there a problem if this is continued for a few years.
    Thanking you in advance.

  92. Dr hebbar Namaskar,
    My son has milk autism he is 5 yrs old, he has speech but does not use much language also 2 years behind his age in few areas like comprihension and social cues,
    His ayurvedic doc recommended Ashpi syrup,
    Shankhpushpi (Convilvulus pluricaulis) 100mg in 5ml
    Brahmi ( centella asiatica) 75mg
    Rosa centifoila 25 mg
    Jyotishmati 13mg
    Akkalkaro 10 mg

    I asked about mentat which also have brahmi (bacopa along with Centella asiatica) and has Vacha and other herbs
    Only difference is has Vishnkranthi (Evolvulus Alsinoides) instead of Shankhpusphi (Convolvulos Pluricaulis)
    Please guide me is Vishnukranthi is as effective as Shaknhpushpi not sure why Big brand like Himalaya would miss on ayurevic text (Bhava Prakasha) by replacing it with shankhpushpi if its not effective.

    Also can u guide us what would be best dose he was recommended 5 ml twice a day for 3 months in a year.

    can it be given more than 3 months with breaks as maintenace dose after initial course.

    Shall we use ashpi Syrup or Mentat

    Looking for your guidance on specific varity efficacy question and two broad Medhya rasanyana

    Thank you,

    Nikhil
