An ayurvedic proprietary medicine, Mentat is an all-natural formula that has antidepressant and anxiolytic effects on your body. It is available in the form of tablets.
How It Works
The amount of different herbs used in Mentat combine to provide a holistic approach in helping to enhance your memory and learning capacity. The bacopa herb works by promoting brain health, memory as well as mental calm while the Indian pennywort revitalizes the nerves and cells in the brain, and helps with blood circulation. It also contains winter cherry, which works to energize and sooth the mind. Last but not least, the morning glory properties improves memory powers while purifying the blood. These ingredients, amongst a number of others used in Mentat, can also reduce the level of tribulin, which is beneficial in treating insomnia and convulsions. In some cases, it can also act as adjuvant in treating patients with neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases (in the early stages), epilepsy, and post-stroke aphasia due to its therapeutic properties.
As aforementioned, Mentat is used to enhance neurological functions while improving cognitive functions and increasing memory. Doctors may prescribe the medication to students as a means to improving their learning abilities and academic performance via better concentration and longer attention span. It can also be prescribed to working adults who are stuck in a stressful environment and the elderly, to treat mental fatigue, stress and forgetfulness. If taken regularly, Mentat may also treat anxiety and stress-related disorders.
Generally, one or two tablets may be taken twice daily with meals. However, depending on your health condition and severity of the symptoms, the dosage will vary. Therefore, it is recommended that you consult a doctor before taking Mentat to get the correct dosage based on your condition. Only take the tablets exactly as directed by your doctor, and do not double dose to make up for a missed dose. Because the medication uses natural ingredients for a holistic approach, it may take a few weeks for absorption and for you to experience the benefits.
Mentat is currently reported to not have any side effects and no adverse reaction, provided that you have taken the medication exactly as prescribed.
Before taking Mentat, you should know that the medication may increase the general anesthesia influence on your body. Therefore, if you are scheduled for any type of surgery, do not take Mentat for at least two weeks before the procedure. Furthermore, if you or someone you care is epileptic, please inform this to the doctor before taking this medication since the dosage of other antiepileptic drugs may need to be decreased.
You may stay on your regular diet during the treatment. In the event that you know someone who is experiencing the same symptoms as you are, refrain from sharing the medication with them without medical consultation. Make it a habit to record all your doctor appointments and a written list of all your prescription and nonprescription medications for future reference and emergency purposes.
