This auspicious plant is one of the most potent and powerful herbs for the nervous system in Ayurvedic pharmacology. It spreads throughout the nervous system, aiding in memory, treating anxiety, insomnia, pain and nervous ticks, and promoting intellectual capacity and creativity. When the digestive system is upset by nerves or anxiety, Shankhapusphi will help get things back on track. Also an effective aphrodisiac (after all, the brain is the sexiest organ). Rejuvenating and calming, this is one of our "desert island" herbs.
VPK= Balancing for Vata, Pitta, and Kapha
