Bacopa or Brahmi has been used for thousands of years in “Ayurvedic” medicine as a brain tonic to improve brain activity. In an increasingly stressful world, Brahmi has rapidly become popular. Stress and anxiety affects learning and memory. Brahmi reduces these negative effects while providing benefits in learning and memory. It further enhances nerve impulse activity and neurotransmission within the brain. It also aids neuron repair, supports new neuron growth and regulates memory processes. In addition to these qualities, bacopa is neuroprotective, and reduces oxidative stress through its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. With the growing scientific evidence behind its mode of action, it is now commonly used in many supplements either in its entirety or as a constituent.
