Bacopa Monnieri is among the best cognitive-enhancers and rejuvenators known to Ayurvedic medicine. The latest research suggests it’s an all-around beneficial herb for the mind and body, although more clinical trials are needed.
Bacopa seems to work by boosting two key neurotransmitters in the brain: acetylcholine and GABA. In turn, it may make you feel relaxed and mentally-stimulated at the same time. According to limited research, it may be a good option for reducing stress and improving memory and learning – especially if you’re older. It also seems to enhance antioxidant defence, protecting the body against oxidative damage.
Preliminary research in animals and cells suggests Bacopa may also lower inflammation, histamine reactions, allergies, and asthma. Plus, it killed bacteria and fungi, and it might help with gut damage – so people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) may want to give it a try as well.
