Oxidative Stress Protection
Oxidative stress is the unwanted production of free radicals in the brain. Free radicals are reactive chemicals that come from imbalances in the body. The problem is that they can cause diseases and long-term damage. There’s a belief that some smart drugs may protect against oxidative stress.
Vitamins C and E are powerful antioxidants that fight against these processes. Meanwhile, gotu kola is a popular plant with multiple benefits. Reportedly, it can protect against heavy metals as well as reducing free radicals in the brain. Usually, people consume gotu kola in capsule or tea form (via Mount Sinai).
