A study published in “International Journal of PharmTech Research 2009”
Entitled “Evaluation of Abelmoschus Esculentus Mucilage as Suspending Agent in Paracetamol Suspension” suggests that the extracted mucilage of Abelmoschus esculentus is non toxic and has the potential as a suspending agent even at
lower concentration (4%w/v) and can be used as a pharmaceutical adjuvant. In view of these properties, mucilage of Abelmoschus esculentus can be employed as stabilizer and thickener of choice when high viscosity’s desired especially in cosmetic, pharmaceutical and food industries.

  • Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba)

    Ginkgo leaves are remarkable for their ability of their ginkgolide and flavone glycoside-containing extracts to increase local blood flow to brain, bringing greater oxygenation to the tissues, while acting as a neural antoixidant. Ginkgo also improvies brain glucose metabolism, and positively affects levels of amine neurotransmitter substances in the brain. These benefits become more pronounced after prolonged use.

  • Brahmi (Bacopa monniera)

    This Ayurvedic herb has a long history of use as a cognitive enhancer. Research shows that it the protects brain from free radical damage even better than the cognitive-enhancing drug deprenyl (Battacharya), while stimulating improved learning and cognitive function (Kidd).
  • Siberian Ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosis)

    Adaptogenic; helps to modulate stress reactions by normalizing physiological function. The extract stimulates brain activity and causes a more economical release of body energy which results in increased work output. It contains a mixture of eleutherosides A-E, including syriingin (B) and syringaresinol diglucoside (E), which have been shown to diminish stress-caused reductions of strength and memory retrieval. It also benefits growth rates. The anti-stress effect seems to derive from its antioxidant and steroid metabolism activity on the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal endocrine function. It improves adaptation to dimished blood flow to the brain. Siberian ginseng also produces an increase of amine nerve transmitter substances in the brain and adrenal gland.
  • Gotu Kola (Centella asiatica, also Hydrocotyle asiatica)

    These herbs are not to be confused with the caffeine-containg Kola nut. Their triterpenoid glycosides - asiaticoside, madecassoside, and brahmoside - reduce adrenal corticosterone blood levels during stress. They have also been found to be useful for cognitive and nervous disorders and vascular problems of the brain.
  • Green Oats (Avena sativa)

    The fresh green seeds have been used as a mild antispasmotic and nourishing nerve tonic. Its tonic effects are not immediatly stimulating as with caffeine, but are cummulative and resotorative over time with continued use.
Various combinations of sedative and stimulating herbs have been widely used in naturopathic and herbal practice as one aspect of treatment for ADHD. The following herbal formula is similar to many of those being recommended for the treatment of ADHD. It includes both stimulant and sedative herbs. In this study it was used to test effectiveness in the treatment of adult adjustment disorder with anxiety. The formula demonstrated significant benefits in the treatment of anxiety, an interesting finding in that it made use of stimulant herbs. RELATED STUDIES:
