Bacopa for Learning and Memory


Learning and Memory
In the modern world, there are times when you need to buckle down and learn something new. It could be anything from a presentation at work to studying for a test when you want to achieve a higher level of mental clarity. And surprisingly, there is an herb that can help you reach your goal.

BACOPA extract - the smart herb for learning and memory.

BACOPA extract, made from Bacopa monniera is standardized to 20% bacosides and has been used in Ayurvedic herbalism to support mental acuity for thousands of years. In modern clinical studies, this herb has been associated with learning and retaining new information.

The Smart Herb

The primary principle of Ayurveda is to maintain a healthful balance of the mind and the body. A healthy mental state is a key factor in maintaining this balance, especially during times when you want to learn and use new information.

BACOPA EXTRACT offers healthy support for improving both learning and memory that is based on Ayurvedic traditional herbalism as well as modern clinical research data.

Bacopa monniera is one of the most important herbs in the 5,000 year old tradition of Ayurvedic healing. Also, known as Brahmi, its uses included improving memory and learning.

Bacopa seems to work on specific pathways for memory, learning and relaxation. Animals treated with bacosides from bacopa extract had increased protective antioxidant activity in many parts of the brain, including the hippocampus - the brain's memory center. In vitro tests of bacopa were associated with increased sparing of acetylcholine, an information messaging neurotransmitter. Animals treated with bacopa had increased GABA and glutamine neurotransmitter levels that are associated with calming effects. In various human studies, bacopa intake has been associated with faster information processing, increased learning rates, improved memory retention and reduced testing anxiety in as little as 12 weeks.

One of the most surprising effects of bacopa is on reducing anxiety during testing. Test or performance anxiety can affect your performance. But with bacopa, you can work towards having a performance edge instead of performance anxiety.
