Information About Bacopa

Bacopa monniera is an Ayurvedic herb used in traditional Indian medicine for a wide range of purposes. Bacopa supplements are used today primarily to support mental functions and mood. It's sold in two main forms, either powdered bacopa herb or an herbal extract of bacopa, standardized for active ingredients called bacosides.

Health Benefits of Bacopa

The principle benefits people obtain from bacopa relate to improvements in cognitive functions like concentration, memory and creative thinking. Bacopa is also relaxing and helps users better cope with stress. It's often used by students, busy professionals and the elderly.

Using Bacopa

Bacopa products should be taken according to label instructions. Bacopa, like any brain formula, works best when your basic nutritional needs are met; so for best results take bacopa along with your regimen of a multivitamin, fish oil or flax oil for omega 3s, and whey protein shakes for essential amino acids.

You can also combine bacopa with other brain formulas for excellent results. It works very well with ginkgo biloba, acetyl-l-carnitine, phenylalanine, theanine and SAMe.
