Hi lybrate-user. Brahmi and Ashwagandha both have its own benefits but for different purposes like for example: Brahmi: Potential therapy for chronic discomfort and neuropathy, memory enhancer, aphrodisiac, and general tonic, Stress reduction, short attention span, foggy memory, and blurred focus. Wherein, Ashwagandaha is for Generalized Anxiety Disorder which is again related to stress, weakness and to gain weight. The Term Generalized Social Anxiety is overall different in psychology: Its important to understand the symptoms of what makes you say that you are suffering from Social Anxiety. Emotional signs and symptoms Excessive self-consciousness and anxiety in everyday social situations Intense worry for days, weeks, or even months before an upcoming social situation Extreme fear of being watched or judged by others, especially people you don't know Fear that you'll act in ways that will embarrass or humiliate yourself Fear that others will notice that you're nervous Physical signs and symptoms Red face, or blushing Shortness of breath Upset stomach, nausea (i.e. Butterflies) Trembling or shaking (including shaky voice) Racing heart or tightness in chest Sweating or hot flashes Feeling dizzy or faint Behavioral signs and symptoms Avoiding social situations to a degree that limits your activities or disrupts your life Staying quiet or hiding in the background in order to escape notice and embarrassment A need to always bring a buddy along with you wherever you go Drinking before social situations in order to soothe your nerves Now Generalised Anxiety is different from Social Anxiety. Here are the symptom: Excessive, ongoing worry and tension An unrealistic view of problems Restlessness or a feeling of being "edgy" Irritability Muscle tension Headaches Sweating Difficulty concentrating Nausea The need to go to the bathroom frequently Tiredness Trouble falling or staying asleep Trembling Being easily startled To answer your question. Bhrami and Ashwangadha will not really help you if you have Social Anxiety or Generalised Anxiety. Reason being it will not change your thought process. Those are only good from a perspective of keeping your Body healthy. Please identify to your symptoms and visit a counselor near you. I hope this helped. Take care.
