I can't see any pic. All I get is a string of computer gobbledegook like
this but it goes on for ages longer than the snippet below:

What do you use your comfrey for Billy? I know it's leaves are supposed to
be a compost accelerant and also that the roots can be used as a healing
compress, but all I ever seem to do with mine is to use the leaves as mulch.
I haven't used it, but it is for wounds, and I hope I won't need it, as
is the yarrow, which I haven't used either. What I have used is prunella
(very impressive for dropping blood pressure), dandelion to lower B.P.,
and put in salads, blueberry leaves for dropping blood sugar, and
hawthorn leaves for my ticky ticker. Some like echinacea, bergamot, and
borage I mostly grow for their flowers.

I suppose you were probably joking that you have forgotten what it is.
Nevertheless, answering the serious question, comfrey has various
traditional usages (and not much use for any of them) but memory is not
one of them. Moreover it is unlikely that taking any substance,
man-made or botanical, will be of any specific use for improving your
Actually, I understand that caffein, and ginko (not together) have shown
promise, at least with short term memory.
Use ginkgo biloba if your memory loss is due to age-related issues.
Simply forgetting where you ate dinner last night will probably be
better treated by other herbs. However, if documented memory loss is due
to age, ginkgo is the best herb to use.
Take ginkgo in a supplement, daily. Talk to your doctor or neurologist
about the recommended dosage for your dementia or other age-related
Try bacopa monnieri as a supplement. This herb stimulates the production
of GABA in your brain, which is a neurotransmitter that also decreases
your blood pressure and calms you down.
Look for a 200 mg (2 tsp.) to 400 mg (4 tsp.) dose.
Drink tea with ginseng to increase your mental function and improve your
memory. Studies have demonstrated that ginseng improves mental ability
as well as memory functions.
Grow or buy some fresh rosemary. Rosemary is an herb with a lot of
carnosic acid, which is not only an antioxidant but also goes directly
to your cerebral vascular tissues to dilate them and improve memory.
Sprinkle rosemary on your food, or simply smell it. Studies have
proven rosemary to be useful in sharpening the memories of office
Take a capsule of croton lechleri, also called "dragon's blood." This
herb will help you store memories by breaking down enzyme compounds that
might be causing memory problems.
Take a 1 to a 1.5g (0.035 to 0.05 oz.) dose per day.
Look for supplements and products that include gotu kola. This herb
promotes overall mental functions and is used in many herbal remedies
for attention deficit and memory problems.
Use rhodiola to improve your memory while giving you extra concentration
skills. This herb also boosts your immune system.
Take 100 mg of rhodiola or rhodiola rosea every day should bring
you noticeable results.
Ask your doctor for vinpocetine if you need blood thinners. This herb is
a natural blood thinner which can also improve brain circulation and
keep your memory sharper.
What were we talking about?

Caffeine helps to keep you alert - can the effect be separated?
Ginkgo: Wikipedia sums up the evidence as follows.
"Nonetheless, a meta-analysis in 2012 reported zero effect sizes for
the impact of Ginkgo biloba on memory, attention and problem-solving in
"An editorial in The Lancet concluded ginkgo biloba does not prevent
dementia in elderly individuals with or without memory complaints or
cognitive impairment and is not effective for prevention of Alzheimer's
Nevertheless we can observe there are some interesting biochemical
effects from Ginkgo which indicate other routes for study.
The trouble is that medical studies can so easily be badly done that it
is very easy to find "some promise" results for a junk treatment in the
typical badly done study. And studies in complementary medicine are
usually in the badly done category. This is why Chinese studies of
traditional Chinese medicine always find it works, when properly
conducted studies always find it doesn't. For example, acupuncture has
now been thoroughly debunked.
