What about evidence from Modern Science?


The Modern Scientific Evidence

Parle & Bansal suggest that herb mixes based on Amla (Emblica officinalis) may prove to be a useful remedy for the management of Alzheimer’s disease owing to its antioxidant effect, pro-cholinergic action and/or antiamnesic potential (See also this article).

  • Liquorice has also figured in the research on improving brain function.

Glycyrrhiza glabra (Licorice/Liquorice): could slow down cognitive impairment and enhance memory.

Scientists suggest that memory deficit, a major outcome of prolonged elevated blood sugar level, might be reversed with the help of licorice.   Also evidence suggests the following exciting directions that Liquorice may help in:

The combination of antioxidant, neuro-protective and anticholinesterase properties of glabridin may have a positive effect for  deleterious effects of diabetes on learning and memory in an animal model.

The paper suggests that glabridin appears to be a promising candidate for memory improvement and it will be worthwhile to explore the potential of glabridin in the management of Alzheimer patients.

Their results suggest that liquorice may possess an antidepressant effect.
