March 12, 2018

Overview:

Bacopa Monnieri is possibly one of the oldest nootropics known to us today, with its use dating back to Ayurvedic medical practices in native to North India. This natural and plant-based nootropic has been referred to as a natural “Brain Tonic” as well as the closest natural alternative to Piracetam!
With centuries of use and trials, Bacopa Monnieri has gained its position in the spotlight due to its ability to not only aid in stress-adaptation but enhancing memory, mood, learning ability, and brain health.

Benefits of Bacopa:

  • Additionally, Bacopa has been found to enhance human brain plasticity via the increase or promotion of BDNF, otherwise referred to as brain-derived neurotrophic factor.
