Bacopa Monnieri is an effective herb used in Ayurveda medicine to promote and enhance memory and for relaxation. It contains different compounds including bacosides, bacosterols, bacosine, brahmine, luteolin, apigenin, quercetin, herpsaponin, and beta-sitosterol glucoside. Although all these compounds combine to provide a safe and effective nootropic, the main and most important ingredient is the bacosides content.
There are many benefits to taking daily Bacopa Monnieri including its proven ability to increase memory function. Specifically, Bacopa has been found to increase verbal learning, delayed recall, and overall memory retention. It also acts on the hippocampus to promote mood biomarkers.
Although Bacopa can take around four to six weeks to begin working, taking Bacopa in capsule form takes the guess work out of proper dosing making it easy to stay on track and see results.
