Brahmi Shows Positive Effect on Schizophernia Patients
Brahmi(Bacopa monnieri), an Ayurvedic herb has primarily been used to enhance cognitive ability, memory and learning skills. The researchers provide an assessment of a case study of schizophrenia in which add-on Brahmi extracts 500 mg/day for a period of one month resulted in reduction in psychopathology without any treatment-emergent adverse effect. Although preliminary, the case study suggests therapeutic efficacy of add-on Brahmi in schizophrenia, thus providing a new dimension of alternative medicines in managing Schizophernia.

Study Shows Brahmi Helps Brain Retain New Information
Researchers have reported significant improvement in retention of new information in subjects who were part of a randomized placebo control study in which brain memory functions were studied after intake of Brahmi herbal preparation in a three month trial. The results show a significant effect of the Brahmi on a test for the retention of new information. Follow-up tests showed that the rate of learning was unaffected, suggesting that Brahmi decreases the rate of forgetting of newly acquired information. One of the sections who would benefit the most are the students studying for an upcoming examination. Since they are in the process of acquiring new information towards an impending examination, the retention of such information can be expected to be aided by intake of Brahmi.

The Clinical Study of Brahmi
Bacopa monniera Linn. (Brahmi) has been known as the brain tonic in Ayurveda. Study done by HK Singh etal. And published in Symposium (Vol 29, Issue 5, Pg 359-365) corroborates the claim of Ayurveda that Brahmi is a cerebral herb. The clinical study on healthy male volunteers indicates that Brahmi serves in improving cognitive function and mental retention capacity. The chemical constituent which gives this quality to Brahmi was identified to be mixture of two saponins – Bacosides A and B. The study claims that these Bacosides help recede amnesia due to stress. It also improved protein kinase activity and increased protein hippocampus. Bacosides were also found to be safe in regulatory pharmacological and toxicological studies.

Odisha Winning The Anaemia Battle

The results from the recently published NFHS IV data reveal that Anaemia is on the downslide in Odisha. However, the battle is yet to be won, with sizeable numbers still having a low hemoglobin counts.

Incidence of AnaemiaNFHS 4 (2015-16)NFHS 3 (2005-06)
Children 6-59 months44.6%65%
Non-Pregnant Women (15-49)51.2%60.9%
Pregnant Women (15-49)47.6%68.1%
All women (15-49)51%61.1%
Men (15-49)28.4%33.9%

How did Odisha manage to turn around the slide, which is not only for the incidence of Anaemia but also for other key health indicators?

The story of the transformation of the trajectory of the Odisha health indicators is a story of focus, planning, dedication and an honest implementation effort.

1. Enabling Environment:

Odisha has enjoyed political stability since 2003 which has resulted in unhindered policy focus on the development of the state. There has been a significant increase in government spending on health and nutrition with an annual grown rate of more than 20%. The State governments Health Equity Strategy brought in dedicated attention to improving the health of the most disadvantaged people in the State, and recognize the particularly poor health status of Scheduled Tribes and Scheduled Castes and the KBK+ districts. The Nutritional Operation Plan launched by the state targets below 6 yr age children in the 15 high burden districts of the State.

2. Geographical focus on the poorest districts (KBK+)

The Health Equity Strategy and the Nutrition Operational Plan prioritization of KBK+ districts resulted in targeted health and development investment in these areas, and service delivery innovations tailored to the KBK+ context. The National Rural Health Mission expenditure saw a spurt by 45% in KBK+ districts between 2008–09 and 2012–13, in comparison to 28% in other districts. The KBK+ districts include Kalahandi, Nabarangpur,  Nuapada,  Koraput, Rayagada, Malkangiri, Balangir, Sonepur,  Ganjam, Nayagarh and Jajpur.

3.Improving service delivery

A number of initiatives have been taken including construction and renovation of health facilities, training of community health workers, community-based rapid diagnostic kits and introduction of mobile health units. Mobile health units have been particularly of great help in reaching health care to the remotest villages.

4. Increasing women's access to health services

Odisha has focused on making access to health care and nutrition services more favorable for women and girls. The health facilities are now more gender sensitive including construction of female toilets and partitions in labor rooms for privacy and dignity. Significant strides have been made in strengthening the capacity of female frontline health workers. Adolescent Anaemia Control Program and Village Health and Nutrition Days have contributed in increasing female access. The Janani Suraksha Yojana has made a significant contribution to increasing institutional delivery in the state. Innovative schemes like Mamata and Janani Sishu Suraksha Karyakram provide cashless deliveries and treatment of sick neonates have helped keep the momentum of health services focus on women going.

While significant strides have been made, the job is not fully done yet. Branolia salutes the political leadership, state bureaucracy, health managers, doctors, paramedics, community health workers and citizens of the state in bringing about this turnaround.

Branolia on its part is playing a small role for a healthy Odisha by increasing access to its herbal formulations across the state. Kulerron a formulation based on Kulekhara plant, the best known Ayurvedic herb to fight against Anaemia for fighting Anaemia is now available in a large number of retail counters in the State and is seeing a big uptake. Our other products like Branolia (for increasing mental alertness and well being), Livonia (for regulating liver function), Bellytone (for keeping digestive system tuned and Bitocough (for cold) are extremely popular in Odisha.

Branolia Chemical Works remains committed to health care of the state and will keep providing high-quality ayurvedic formulation to our customers in Odisha.

Dr. Deepak Chopra Endorses Triphala

Dr.Deepak Chopra and TriphalaWhen Dr. Deepak Chopra talks about alternative medicine, the world listens. An alumnus of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Delhi, Dr. Chopra is the founding president of the American Association of Ayurvedic Medicine and formerly a faculty at the medical schools of Tufts University, Boston University, and Harvard University. Considered a new age Guru and a celebrity globally, Dr. Chopra has been a votary of alternative medicine and holistic living and taken on single handed the established medical hegemony and termed the current medical community as legalized ‘drug pushers’. His argument is that though not all prescriptions are useless, but  80 percent of all drugs prescribed today are of optional or marginal benefit.

In a recent article published by the Chopra Centre, Triphala has been highlighted as the queen in the Ayurveda treasure chest. Comprising of three fruits namely Amalaka, Haritaki and Bibhitaki, Triphala has been known for thousands of years to the Indian medical science of Ayurveda as a potent weapon against a number of illnesses.

Ayurveda’ treatise on taste and Triphala

The Chopra Centre highlights one interesting aspect of Triphala, Drawing on the Ayurveda’s exposition on how the taste of food has inputs for ensuring that our body will be in a balanced state. The article highlights how Triphala helps the body achieve equilibrium. The science behind taste as an indicator of well being is that our plasma cells are the first recipients of nourishment as our food digests. According to Ayurveda, the plasma holds all six tastes (or the nourishment associated with each taste) within it. In order to have healthy, nourishing plasma to feed other body tissues, one must try to get a steady supply of all six tastes. Triphala contains the following tastes: Sour, Pungent, Bitter, Astringent, Sweet and the associated nourishment needed by the body. It is this dynamic that allows the taste-holding Triphala to have its unique effect.

Triphala is an active ingredient in Branolia Chemical Work’s ayurvedic liver tonic Livonia and Branolia’s Bellytone. As claimed by the Chopra center on the effects of Triphala on the digestive system remains central in the effects of both Branolia’s Livonia and Branolia’s Bellytone on the digestive tract and in addition for the overall health and well being.
