Is there any advantage for vitex negundo over ocimum sanctum?

Are bramhi and nirgundi two different names of the same plant? If no , how can we differentiate between the two?
09 Jun 2016
Brahmi is Baopa Moneri And Nirgundi is CHaste berry. Both these herbs are entirely different from each other.
Each has its own actions and cures different diseases. Brahmi plant has white flowers and chasteberry has purple flowers. Why don't you look for the image on the internet. P..S.
Brahmi is a creeping plant where as Nirgundi is a tree.

If these herbs do not suit you then why don't you try the following herbs-
Take Apple Cider Vinegar. One teaspoon added to the glass of hot water, twice a day for a month. Eat an Avocado once in a week. And for cute in hands I will advise you to dip your hands in water containing 2 to 3 teaspoons of Epsom Salt. Or you may try Horse Gram soup for one month.

No. Nirgundi is another name of herb Chaste Berry. It is also called Vitex Negurdo. So, do not get confused between the two. Both are different. And Nagod is the name for herb Vitex Negundo.
