Natural Bacopa leaf extract.
The plant Bacopa monnieri has been used for over 3000 years in Ayurvedic medicine. It is recognised in Ayurveda as a treatment for conditions of the brain - the centre of creative activity according to Hindu belief. It was thus recommended for various ailments affecting the mind such as nervous conditions, mental disorders and memory problems. Traditionally used by pressing the leaves and stems, Bacopa monnieri is now available in the form of dietary supplements, based on natural extracts.
Renowned in Ayurvedic medicine for combatting anxiety, Bacopa monnieri has been the subject of considerable research into its benefits and mechanism of action. While this mechanism is not yet fully understood, Bacopa monnieri is considered to be a general tonic for fighting stress. Scientific findings suggest that administration of this plant extract may modify concentrations of neurotransmitters in certain stress-related conditions, particularly in sleep deprivation.
Alongside its anti-stress effects, Bacopa monnieri is also being studied for other potential benefits. Scientists are particularly interested in its effect on cognitive ability. It seems to improve capacity for learning, memory and information-processing. Even though its mechanism of action in the brain has yet to be fully established, there is increasing evidence that Bacopa monnieri may act by increasing protein synthesis in the hippocampus, an area of the brain involved in long-term memory.See the article for practical tips on how to maintain well our memory.
