Originally called Brahmi, meaning sacred, holy and divine, today Bacopa is considered to be one of the most impressive adaptogens known, empowering clarity of thought and peace of mind.
Researchers have proposed a myriad of possible actions for Bacopa including mental alertness, cognitive support, antioxidant activity and mood supporting properties. Bacopa promotes verbal learning, memory and retention.
Used in Ayurveda for centuries, Brahmi (Bacopa/Bacopa monnieri) supports normal mental function, intellect, consciousness and spirit. According to the Alternative Medicine Review (March 2004), ‘Recent research has focused primarily on Bacopa’s cognitive effects, specifically memory learning and concentration, and results support the traditional Ayurvedic claims.’
Bacopa is a nervine tonic that enhances learning, academic performance and improves mental ability. It acts as an anti-anxiety agent and is used in several mental disorders.
It also calms restlessness in children. It is used as a nootropic, a drug that enhances cognitive ability.
Scholars at the University of Wollongong in Australia conducted double-blind, placebo-controlled studies on Bacopa, showing positive effect on brain functions. Another study found that Bacopa is beneficial for memory retention.
Researchers from Uttar Pradesh, India, working with the Frankston Hospital in Victoria, Australia, also found that Bacopa (Brahmi) showed a supportive effect on memory control and occasional age-associated memory challenges (Indian Journal of Psychiatry, 2004, 48:4, 238-242).
The plant, a small creeping herb with numerous branches, is found in marshy areas near streams and ponds throughout India especially in the North Eastern regions. It is found at elevations from sea level to altitudes of 4,400 feet.
