It builds the self-confidence and enthusiasm of a person to perform various tasks. It also provides the mental strength needed to perform the difficult tasks.


Medha Vati is considered an effective remedy for treating insomnia. It produces a sedative action and induces sleep. The benefit of using Medha Vati over the modern sedative medications is, unlike modern medications, Medha Vati does not cause dependency even when it is used for a long duration. Medha Vati also helps to reduce stress and allows a person to feel fresh and energetic during the day by ensuring he gets a sound sleep at night.

        1. Yes, Medha Vati can be used in dementia. Its ingredients are effective to prevent and reverse mental deterioration and improve memory and cognitive functions.

  9. Brahmi herb and Gotu Kola herb contain pure Non-toxic mercury so after consuming Divya Medha Vati for a continuous period of 6 months, how to check the levels of mercury present in the blood because mercury is the only metal present on the earth which enhances memory and acts as a powerful memory booster. So is there any pathological test where I can check the presence of mercury in my blood means how many parts per million mercury metal are present in my blood?

    1. Gotu Kola and Brahmi both do not contain mercury in any form. Divya Medha Vati does also not contain any compound of mercury.

      Blood mercury test (Mercury, Blood) is available to detect mercury levels in the blood. It is a part of commonly used “Heavy Metals Panel” or test for “Toxic Metals”.

    2. Mr. Maheshwari, you are horribly misinformed. Whoever told you that mercury improves memory? Mercury is the MOST TOXIC metal, both the organic and the inorganic varieties. Researchers and scientists’ world over are struggling hard to eradicate mercury contamination from human life. In most cases of dementia/memory loss, mercury has been implicated. It is being vehemently advised by well-meaning health specialists and researchers to avoid mercury in any form. Avoid dental ‘silver filling’ which is an amalgam with 50% mercury and has been found to be behind chronic cases of diabetes, heart ailments, epilepsy, autism, cancer, Alzheimer’s, birth defects, impotence and many other serious health issues. Please do some research on mercury toxicity, internet is replete with information on the same.

  16. I’m living with epilepsy. I was watching Baba Ramdev’s video about Divya Medha Vati tablets and Yoga and came to this website. I’d started my treatment with Ayurvedic medicines but even after taking medicines for a over 18 months it did not help. I then switched to Allopathic medicines for few months but the dosage was so high that I started suffering from memory loss since then. I then switched to Homepathic medicines but that did not do any good to me. I then switched back to Allopathic, now the seizures are under control but I have 10 tablets a day and I know that these are not good for my health. I’m 34 and my weight is just 46, its not increased since 12th. It has been in between 46-50 kgs always. I’m really fed up of seizures. I face seizures in the night (while I’m sleeping). Its just for a minute not more than that but I wish I’m cured. I’ve heard that they are controllable and not curable and that has killed half the confidence. I don’t want to have these medicines. I feel as though I’m having actual drugs or chemicals. Sorry for this lengthy conversation.

    Kindly advise.

  40. Let me Congratulate Ayurveda for making this Gem of a medicine because of which I came back to my normal life. I was suffering from depression for a long time and I consulted allopathic doctor, who prescribed allopathic medicine as usual. I took this medicine for almost 5 years, but it completely destroyed my nervous system.

    Then I decided to completely get rid of allopathic medicine. However, I had terrible withdrawal symptoms. I was feeling very low on confidence and all my nerves in the brain had become weak. I was not even able to raise my head and talk to people. I really felt helpless and very weak and I thought I am going to die very early.

    Then luckily one day I met Patanjali doctor and he gave me Medha Vati. I took 1 tablet daily. It makes you dizzy during the day, but I continued with it for almost 1 year. Suddenly After 1 year, I started to revive. I could raise my head and talk to people.

    I continued with this medicine for almost 5 years and I was completely a changed man. My nervous system was back in order and I came back to full life.
    I am indebited to Patanjali Divya Medha Vati for rest of life. Hereafter, I changed to Patanjali medicine for all my diseases.

    Thank you and Long live Baba Ramdev ji for making this wonderful life-giving medicine. I am alive today because of this medicine.
