I wish I had known about this herb years ago when a co-worker I knew had a stroke. She was determined to come back into the field, since she loved teaching so much. It was her life! It didn't happen! I don't know if this herb would have helped or not, since I'm not a medical professional.
For me, I take this herb because I don't want to end up taking pharma meds with side effects, such as what my mother went through.
DISCLAIMER: I am not a medical professional. Seek the advice with a medical professional before taking this herb.
