Bacopa Monnieri

For Mood and Cognition

Bacopa Monnieri (Brahmi) is a plant extract that assists in elevating mental acuity while supporting the physiological processes involved in relaxation. It is similar to Picamilon in its effects, however, Bacopa is a plant extract and it not chemically related to Pica so it has different mechanisms of action. Bacopa is regarded as an important revitalizing herb for nerve and brain cells which means it plays an important role in treatment of cognitive disorders (such as those involved with aging).

Bacopa carries properties that improve mental functions by a modulation of the cholinergic and GABAergic neurotransmission. It works by restoring the frontal cortical muscarinic and cholinergic receptor activities and so is used to improve cognitive performance, memory, concentration and the anxiety threshold. A more precise list includes:

• Bacopa helps with reducing the level of tribulin, an MAO inhibitor, which is elevated in certain degrees of anxiety.
• It can better some of the attention disorders and other behavioral problems.
• In proper dosage it also works as a safe and natural sedative and tranquilizing agent
• Beneficial in insomnia
• The product can help to improve articulation and in correcting speech defects if used over a certain period of time.
