I am also taking brahmi as a single herb. I do not take it together with ashwagandha. I take them both separately. I have been taking brahmi for almost six months 125 2x or 3x daily as the need arises. Lately, I observed that taking brahmi during supper time makes my mind very active. I just want to know if brahmi and ashwagandha are a good combination for balance where the mind is alert but not overactive.
