Bacopa Monnieri has always been used as a brain tonic to improve memory, learning and concentration.

Improvement in cognitive abilities

For example, patients treated with Bacopa Monnieri-based nutraceuticals have achieved a significant improvement in their cognitive functions. A meta-analysis showed an improvement in cognitive abilities and a faster rate of attention associated with the use of Bacopa Monnieri. A study conducted with medical students observed a statistically significant improvement in tests related to cognitive functions associated with the use of Bacopa Monnieri.

The bacosides

The main active constituents of the herb are the bacosides. The mechanism of action of these substances includes their interaction with the enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase, increasing its activity and promoting the biosynthesis of serotonin, thus improving learning and memory formation.

Neuroprotective effects

In addition, other scientific evidence suggests that Bacopa Monnieri exerts its neuroprotective effects in a complex manner, through an antioxidant mechanism, increasing cerebral blood flow and modulating neurotransmitters.
