Stem Grow consists of Brahmi, also known as Indian Pennywort, which has been used as a brain, stomach, skin, and lymph tonic in Ayurveda for thousands of years, and this is now backed by modern science.
Prior studies have found Brahmi to have neuroprotective effects on nerve cells. Studies have also found that Brahmi can act as a neurotropic brain cell booster and increase the proliferation and differentiation of human mesenchymal stem cells into Schwann cells, suggesting that Brahmi may be an effective herb for supporting healthy stem cell activity in the brain and central nervous system. The studies saw no negative side effects.

In one study, Amalaki Rasayana (a preparation of Amalaki with honey and ghee, similar to chyawanprash) has been shown to effectively reduce age-related DNA damage in brain cells, demonstrating its stabilizing effect on neurons and astrocytes. The same formulation demonstrated a correlation between an increase in median lifespan and starvation resistance.
Recent studies show that reprogramming of pluripotent stem cells is enhanced when vitamin C is present. According to the study, vitamin C, which is most abundant in amalaki, can regulate the proliferation and differentiation of stem cells, depending upon its concentration.
It is also well understood that the maintenance of telomere length, protective caps on our DNA, is linked to longevity. One study found that Amalaki Rasayana prevents the shortening of telomeres over a period of time in aged individuals, promoting healthy aging.
Amalaki Rasayana is reported to promote longevity and block common geriatric health concerns. Amalaki is a good source of ellagic acid, gallic acid, quercetin, kaempferol, emblicanin, flavonoids, glycosides, proanthocyanidins, and vitamin C and has been studied to overcome several human ailments. The vitamin C, tannins, alkaloids, phenolic compounds, and flavonoids present in Amalaki also possess immunomodulatory and antioxidant activity.
