Ayurveda and Memory

We all have forgetfulness on occasion.  But when this happens on a regular basis, we might look at what we can do Ayurvedically to improve our memory.  According to Ayurveda, memory problems are a result of either too much Kapha, which makes our brain sluggish, or too much Vata, which can make us more “spacey."  There are foods that we can eat to improve these conditions.  Carrots, for example enhance Pitta, which supports a good memory.  Other foods that help increase our Pitta, and hence our memory, include: spinach, okra, sweet potatoes and tapioca.  

AyurIntellect from Balance Ayurvedic contains the herb Gotu Kola, which helps to decrease both Kapha and Vata while rejuvenating Pitta.  Besides increasing intelligence and memory, it fortifies the immune system and strengthens the adrenals.  Gotu Kola is often used by yogis in meditation.
