Bacopa monnieri (aka water hyssop and brahmi) is an herb that has been traditionally used in the Ayurvedic medicinal system for various ailments.1 In more recent years, Bacopa monnieri has become a well-researched supplement with many acute and chronic studies showing improved cognition following its use.
Taking Bacopa monnieri supplement has been shown to have positive effects on cognitive functions, including memory and intellect.2 Interestingly, Bacopa monnieri has not only been demonstrated to safely enhance cognitive performance in the elderly participants4, but it may also improve behaviour and attention-deficit domains in children and adolescents.3 Due to its neuroprotective and neurocognitive effects, Bacopa monnieri promises to be a novel natural agent in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease and other age-related cognitive disorders.5
These nootropic benefits make Bacopa monnieri one of the most popular herbal supplements on the market. Another well-reported benefit of Bacopa monnieri is its capacity to reduce anxiety. In addition, Bacopa monnieri has antioxidant, hepatoprotective, neuroprotective, and anti-inflammatory properties.6
Positive cognitive effects following Bacopa monnieri supplementation are mainly attributed to its key constituents – bacosides A and B.2 These active compounds (bacosides) appear to act on the central nervous system and module cholinergic densities, acetylcholine levels and show anxiolytic capabilities.2
The recommended daily dosage of Bacopa monnieri is 300 mg. Bacopa monnieri should be taken with a meal, which preferably contains some fat as it is fat soluble. Do not take Bacopa monnieri on an empty stomach as it may cause nausea, cramping, bloating and diarrhea.
Bacopa monnieri is a safe and generally well-tolerated natural supplement with a very low percentage of participants reporting mild side-effects.3
