All of you are very familiar with Chinese Gingsing.
We in India have a much better one called Aswagandha.
It was during Bodhi Dharma's visit that the Chinese got to know about Ashwagandha root.
It is NOT possible to grow Ashwagandha in China considering the soil and climate. Hence they used their own version, which is now available all over the world, and was marketed aggressively by China, before their Industrial explosion..
Ashwagandha is an Ayurvedic quantum medicine, which comes under the category of Rasayana ( tonic ) , used by Maharshis to prevent ageing of the brain ( senility ) , agility of brain and and for memory power.
It keeps you in a happy and peaceful frame of mind. It stimulates the growth of axons and dendrites. Glial cells exist in the white matter of your brain, which is 10 times more than grey matter, we all talk about. They enhance the speed of neurological transmission and also help form synaptic circuits.
To think outside the box means you brain had now to fire synaptic patterns in different orders and arrangements to make a new level of mind., based on what you do NOT know. Cortisol produced during stress response degenerates your brain.
Most of you by the age of 50 cant use your brains anymore , yet you keep quiet, thinking nobody will notice it. You are now the pretender, nobody wants in your workplace.
Anxiety feeds anxiety as a continuous feedback loop-- a neural network of worry. Being in survival mode does not evolve your brain.
Only the frontal lobe of your brain can keep you in the present moment.
WHEN YOUR FRONTAL LOBE IS ACTIVATED YOU HAVE FOCUS , CLARITY, CONCENTRATION AND PRO ACTIVENESS, TO KEEP YOU IN THE ZONE OR THE SWEET SPOT.
You only perceive what your brain is organised to tell you. Only mind has influence on quantum particles. Knowing your thoughts help you to control the environment, instead of the environment controlling you. If your brain connectors atrophy with age they cannot branch out and made new connections.
Your hippocalmus need to back up memories of the day. Depression and stress suppresses the body immune system. As you grow older you don't have the rapid burst of nerve impulses which made you duck when something is gonna hit you with a sucker punch.
Stress ages the brain. Your mind operated though 2 parallel modes, conscious and subconscious.
Parkingson's is a degenerating brain disease
So if you are afraid of getting amnesia , or you need a brain tonic you know what to do.
The other preventive/ cure uses of Ashwagandha are --
Panic attacks and sweating the small stuff
Anti oxidising / free radicals neutralising
Sexual performance enhancing and semen count enhancing
Inability to sleep
There are about 2 dozen strains of this plant. Some are more potent than others.
