Dear Varun Dhiman

No, once depleted, gelatin can not be made naturally with herbs. As it is extracted from Skin, Tendons and Ligaments of Animals. The gelatin capsules available in the market usually comes from pork or beef.

The best remedy for your problem is Collagen.
Collagen is important for the Skin and Joints. It is synthesized with Elastin naturally in the body.

For detailed information, Please visit Collagen under Nutrient section on this website.

Dear Sharath
Almonds are the most effective memory enhancer. Take 4 to 5 almonds. Soak them in water,overnight. Next morning, peel them off and eat them. you may also crush them and take them with milk.

Another highly effective cure is Brahmi oil. massage your scalp with the oil, thrice in a week. You need to check if it suits you, as in some cases it might lead to headache or lack of sleep. If it does not suit you, please try Rosemary oil. Massaging your scalp with this oil will not only enhance your memory, but will also prevent hair loss.

For intake ,You may try Ashwagandha . It is a Rasayna Herb. The herb is known to reduce Stress, Anxiety and improve cognitive memory . It comes in the capsule form. Buy it from any medical store.
Eat one capsule daily for a month.
Eat healthy. Give proper rest to your Brain. Why don't you try playing some Brain Games. This definitely helps. Do not think that you have got a bad memory. You are student, you have a long way ahead. Be motivated to improve it. Convince yourself that your memory is not bad. Positive attitude is the key to any treatment.

All the very best!!!
