Brahmi is a perennial creeping herb with small white flowers. Its leaves are bright green and look almost like a succulent. It grows in damp, marshy areas, in both fresh and brackish water. It is commonly found throughout Southeast Asia, but has since migrated with great success to Florida and several other southern states in the US. Brahmi has a bitter and pungent flavor. It has been used since the 6th century C.E. in Ayurvedic medicine and is considered the foremost tonic for the nervous system and general cognition. A recent study in Australia has shown that it had a significant effect on the retention of new information.
