Ashpi - Information for patients

Ashpi Tablets and Syrup – Patient Information

What is dementia?

Dementia is the loss of intellectual functions (such as thinking, remembering, and reasoning) of sufficient severity to interfere with a person’s daily functioning. Dementia is not a disease itself but rather a group of symptoms that may accompany certain diseases or conditions. Symptoms may also include changes in personality, mood, and behavior. Dementia is irreversible when caused by disease or injury but may be reversible when caused by drugs, alcohol, hormone or vitamin imbalances, or depression.

Then what is amnesia?

Amnesia is the severe loss of memory and inability to learn.

The causes of amnesia are organic or functional.

Organic causes include damage to the brain, through trauma or disease, or use of certain (generally sedative) drugs.

Functional causes are psychological factors, such as defense mechanisms. Hysterical post-traumatic amnesia is an example of this.

What is selective amnesia?

Amnesia about particular events that is very convenient for the person who cannot remember; "why do politicians always develop selective amnesia when questioned about their transgressions?"

What is Ashpi?

It is combination of three time-tested herbs. Each tablet of Ashpi or each 5 ml of Ashpi syrup contains:

· Shankhapushpi (1000 mg)
· Brahmi (750 mg)
· Gulab (250 mg


Ashpi strengthens memory and promotes intellectual functions. It is also useful in mental stress and fatigue, and impaired reasoning ability. It is also a natural anxiolytic and improves sleep disorders. It helps patients with incontinence where dementia is the root cause. Many physicians have used Ashpi successfully to give relief from migraine, and to delay the interval between migraine attacks. Paediatricians have found it useful in bedwetting in children. When hypertension is because of anxiety physicians have found Ashpi an useful and effective alternative to benzodiazepines (like diazepam, alprazolam, clonazepam and lorazepam).

Description of the ingredients in Ashpi

Shankhapushpi –(Evolvolus alsinoides, Convolvolus pluricalis)

Shankhapushpi is quoted in the ancient scriptures to be the single greatest herb for enhancing all three aspects of mind power – learning, memory, and recall.
It is also praised as the best herb for beauty, stating that it achieves the goal of beauty, which is auspiciousness in all parts of the body. It also helps to nourish all layers of the skin. It enhances all three pillars of Ayurvedic beauty, known as outer beauty, inner beauty, and lasting beauty.
Shankhapushpi is very beneficial for the nervous system, enhancing the quality of nerve tissues.

Shankhapushpi treats sleep disorders by alleviating stress and anxiety,

Shankhapushpi is quoted in Charaka to be the single greatest herb for enhancing all three aspects of mind power – learning, memory, and recall. It helps the quality of sleep by improving mind-body coordination. Shankhapushpi is very beneficial for the nervous system, enhancing the quality of bone marrow and nerve tissue.

Brahmi (Centella asiatica):

The effects of Brahmi can be of benefit to anyone wishing to stimulate their powers of recall and concentration. Although Brahmi has shown to be helpful in treating ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), age-related mental deterioration and concentration difficulties due to stress, it may be incredibly beneficial where there is no health condition, but only the desire to improve cognitive function. Brahmi improved the initial acquisition of learned information as well as retention ability.

Brahmi is as eminently suited to a healthy, young student looking to maximize their ability to focus and study, as to an elderly person hoping to regain their memory. It enables people to optimize their intellectual potential and mental vitality for the betterment of both personal and professional pursuits. Aside from increasing intellectual and cognitive function, Brahmi induces a sense of calm and peace in its users. It is unique in its ability to invigorate mental processes whilst reducing the effects of stress and nervous anxiety. This makes Brahmi extremely applicable in highly stressful work or study environments where clarity of thought is as important as being able to work under pressure.

As a nervine tonic, Brahmi has been used to help those affected by stroke, nervous breakdown or exhaustion and Attention Deficit Disorder. It may also be of value in assisting those with epilepsy.

Gulab (Rosa indica):

Gulab has a calming effect on the mind. It is very soothing for the nerves and has an anti-depressant effect. It can calm anger. In addition gulab improves mental alertness, brain function and learning ability. Further, gulab increases energy and facilitates elimination of waste from the brain.
