Taking care of your mental health is not an easy task. It takes patience, focus, persistence and certain steely willingness, at the least. If you have ever dealt with any kind of mental health issue like depression, anxiety, mood swings, you know what I mean. When the mind turns against us, the whole world is a deep, dark well with no way out. Or so it seems.
That’s why I believe in the power of a strict “Mental Diet” which primarily means that one is constantly aware and selective about what information and thoughts the brain processes.
A mental diet has many components and a healthy diet + good lifestyle are the keys. That’s why I have been consuming Ashwagandha supplements for years since it soothes my mind.
But then I came across Brinkey Gold Malt by Amrutam which claimed to be a natural formula for mental immunity. Since I am always in favour of trying healthy and ayurvedic products for enhancing my mental health, I decided to give it a shot for 3 weeks.
What Is A Malt?
To be honest, I am not really sure. But the texture of the mixture is like of a jam..you know the type you smear on bread and have it for breakfast.
What Does This Malt Contain?
A hell lot of good stuff! Shankh pushpin, Brahmi, Jatamansi and Ashwagandha ( I can swear by the benefits of Ashwagandha). As for the rest:
Shankhpushpi is used as a medicinal herb and is known to:
- Calm the nerves
- Treating many other mental health disorders.
Nardostachys jatamansi is a herb and is known for its ability to:
- Reduce stress
- Improve cognitive function and sleep.
- Improve memory
- Reduce inflammation
- Treat insomnia
The Brainkey Gold Malt is loaded with super herbs and I loved that.
1 tbsp mixed with one glass of water, twice a day was my dosage for 3 weeks. Ideally, you should have this before meals, but due to my busy schedule, I drank my portion whenever I remembered.
The first week there was no noticeable difference and I consumed it mechanically ( I quite like the taste). But something changed in the second week and my sense of awareness increased, in a subtle way. My overall fatigue reduced and I was able to sleep more soundly without waking up 5 times. I felt a certain lightness and I was able to deal with every day, extenuating circumstances in a calmer way. Well, its safe to say that Ayurveda is amazing!
This malt is not a magic potion which will help you feel better instantly but just like everything else in life, persistence pays off. To begin with, take care of yourself like you are the most important person in the world. It is nobody else’s job and that’s why your mental health is your obligation. The Brainkey Gold Malt is a great way to supplement your mind and it does work but if you make the decision to adopt a mental diet of health, peace and happiness.
