Bacopa Monnieri, also known as Waterhyssop, has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries for its ability to boost cognitive function and reduce anxiety.
The plant’s active component, bacosides, has antioxidant properties, which help to reduce the oxidative stress caused by free radicals in the brain. It can also help improve memory and overall concentration. Additionally, Bacopa Monnieri contains anti-inflammatory properties, which can help with pain management, and age-related brain inflammation, and can help reduce cortisol levels (the hormone produced during stress).
Our own Cerebra+ contains Bacopa Monnieri, as well as many other extracts which help to improve cognitive function and capacity.
