Abstract

Aging is mostly associated with reduction in cognitive abilities even in the presumed healthy. The rise in the aging population across various countries is a representation of an emerging public health challenge in the perspective of disability and the impact on the economy. Safe medicines that improve cognition abilities in elderly people may arrest the personal and social losses caused by cognitive decline. An effective way of combating stress is by use of adaptogen such as Brahmi and Ashwagandha, which are safe and effective stress relievers. This paper seeks to analyze the efficiency and safety of highly concentrated, full spectrum extracts of Brahmi and Ashwagandha roots in anxiety and stress reduction and in enhancing the overall well-being of stressed adults.
