Baidyanath ProductsShankapushpi is a dietary supplement marketed designed to support and improve mental capacity. The main benefits advertised are the ability to improve concentration and to relieve problems associated with increased mental effort (such as anxiety, fatigue, headache or ease in distraction)

The manufacturer is the Indian company Baidyanath Products, a leading manufacturer of Ayurvedic products. The company was established in 1917 and is considered a pioneer in re-connecting the ancient knowledge of Ayurveda principles with the needs of the modern men and women.

Ayurveda is one of the oldest medicine systems in the world, dating back as far as 5,000 years ago, in India. It still enjoys a great popularity, being used today by 80% of India’s population.
It may be used by people who heavily exercise their mind and are prone to developing associated problems.


1) What is Shankapushpi?

The product is a mixture of herbal ingredients and comes in the form of syrup.
The two major ingredients contained by the supplement, Brahmi and Shankapushpi have been used as remedies in the Ayuerveda medicine practice for centuries. Modern research has shown that Shankapushpi enhances concentration, whereas Brahmi improves memory and facilitates the learning process.

The manufacturer offers little information on how the product is supposed to work. However, we should keep in mind that the brain functions and processes are complex and, without proper research, the assessment of whether this product specifically works or not is difficult to make.


2) Shankapushpi Ingredients

Baidyanath ProductsShankapushpi contains the following ingredients: Shankha Pushpi, Brahmi, Sarkara, Nimbusatva, and green colour.

Ashwagandha is one of the most potent herbs for ayurvedic medicine and can be found in high quantities in stress supplements like Sensoril.

3) Is Shankapushpi Right for You?

The use of Shankhapushpi as a memory supplement is not a new application. The Shankhapushpi herb is said to improve the functionality of the brain significantly. It is often combined with other ingredients such as Brahmi, a brain nutrient known to increase the amount of blood that flows to the brain and improves brain oxygenation. The herb is commonly said to help with memory problems, increase alertness, reduce stress, and make the learning process faster and easier.

The online sources also mention Shankhapushpi as being helpful in promoting better sleeping habits. This may be the result of the body’s increased ability to relax and reduced fatigue feelings that eventually allow the body to rest. It is a known fact that increased anxiety feelings and high-stress levels are two of the leading causes of sleeping problems in adults.

Shankhapushpi is a herb that dates back hundreds of years and is present in various cultures. However, this traditional natural remedy has not been clinically proven as an efficient brain enhancing supplement, nor do we fully understand its mechanism of action. Some forms of testing have been performed, but they are inconclusive mostly due to all of the variables that have to be monitored and the inability to isolate each active chemical to study and understand its effect on the human health.

This is a liquid supplement, and the recommended dose is two tablespoons twice a day, preferably after a meal, with a glass of water. According to the manufacturer, it may take up to 3 months of use to notice significant improvements. Pregnant and breastfeeding women or patients taking prescription medications should talk to their doctor before using the formula.

4) Shankapushpi Benefits & Results

  • The ingredients are plants with little associated side effects
  • The manufacturer is one of the first companies to mass market Ayurvedic products (expertise and know-how)
  • The main ingredients have long been used to treat cognitive issues and stress-related problems

5) Shankapushpi Product Warnings

  • There is a general lack of research on the product
  • Lack of information offered by the manufacturer

6) How Much Does Shankapushpi Cost?

The price for a supplement containing this herb is typically moderate. Numerous formulations feature this extract as the main active compound. However, it seems like the prices may vary considerably depending on the manufacturer. It all comes down to the quality of the product and the brand.

Since Shankhapushpi is a popular supplement, you may be able to find what you are looking for locally. Make sure you compare prices to see where you can get the best deal. You can also find a larger selection of this supplement online, but you will likely have to pay for shipping costs on top of the order’s price. Baidyanath Products Shankhapushpi is available in 200 ml bottles that are sold for a moderate-to-high price. Certain volume discounts may be available (for purchases of two or four bottles at once).

How To Use

7) How to Use Shankapushpi

Many consumers are willing to try out Baidyanath ProductsShankapushpi (and similar products for that matter), due to the lack of side effects and to the more often than not affordable price. We however recommend medical advice prior to starting treatment with any supplement, irrespective of the ingredients contained.


8) Our Final Take On Shankapushpi

Baidyanath ProductsShankapushpi is one of the many Ayurvedic products out there. The most important ingredient (the Shankapushpi plant) has gained popularity as consumer trends tend to shift toward herbal, natural remedies, less intrusive to their bodies.

However, the product is not researched and is not FDA approved. The main ingredients seem to be safe, as research conducted up to date has not identified harmful side effects. The effectiveness of the product is a matter of subjective assessment to this point.For precautionary reasons, we recommend the advice of a healthcare provider before starting using the supplement.
