Inspired by the sacred practices of Ayurveda, Bacopa monnieri is a nootropic supplement in vegetarian capsules, made from Bacopa leaves and standardized to 20% bacosides (the chemical compounds responsible for its nootropic effects).

It helps improve memory, learning capacity, and information processing while supporting the whole central nervous system function. It is often combined with Ginkgo biloba, another 'gold-standard' in Ayurvedic medicine.

Who Should Take Bacopa Monnieri Supplements?

Bacopa monnieri is aimed at many groups of people:

  • Those over 50 who want to combat cognitive decline;
  • Those who frequently experience recall problems and feel as if they are losing their memory;
  • Those wishing to boost their cognitive function;
  • Those looking for a natural-source, traditionally used nootropic;
  • Those with a parent, brother, or sister affected by serious cognitive decline.

What Benefits does Bacopa Monnieri Offer?

According to ancient Ayurvedic writings, Bacopa monnieri was recommended for various conditions of the central nervous system and mind: attention deficit, memory problems, chronic stress, decline in cognitive performance, etc. Bacopa monnieri benefits were used to stimulate awareness and help maintain an alert mind.

Today, research is beginning to confirm such anecdotal use. Many studies, including clinical trials, suggest that extracts of organic Bacopa monnieri help improve certain cognitive functions and maintain memory (1-3) (retrieval of information (4-5), learning capacity, associative memory (6), visual memory, work memory, etc.).

As is the case for almost all Ayurvedic plants, scientists have discovered mechanisms of action that support the claims made for this nootropic.

Bacopa monnieri's mechanisms of action

Bacopa monnieri primarily encourages the formation of synapses (7-9), the junctions between two neurons that ensure that information is transmitted and neural circuits are maintained. All our cognitive abilities depend on these circuits: if they become weak or disappear, our performance declines.

How does Bacopa monnieri do this?

It is by triggering the production of several molecules central to healthy synaptic function: glutamate and neutrophils such as BDNF and NGF (10-12). These molecules are crucial for initiating the process (13-14). They support the creation of neural circuits (an essential learning stage), help maintain existing circuits (vital for preserving memories), and are involved in a cascade of neuromolecular events that support cognitive performance.

Recent double-blind trials showed improvements in cognitive function following supplementation (15-16). Standardized extracts of Bacopa containing at least 20% bacosides (the compounds responsible for the previously mentioned effects) have also positively affected short-term memory in healthy individuals (17-20).

5 Good Reasons to Choose Bacopa Monnieri from SuperSmart

When deciding which Bacopa monnieri supplement to buy, be sure to keep in mind the benefits offered by our product:

  1. Bacopa monnieri is 100% inspired by ancient practice. Bacopa leaves were traditionally pressed to extract the juice, which was then dried into a powder and made into a very sweet syrup to mask the bitter taste of the Bacopa. Though inspired by this ancient practice, Bacopa monnieri is a product with neither sugar nor bitterness.
  2. Bacopa monnieri is a leaf extract that contains all the naturally occurring compounds. It is important to remember that many cheaper alternatives to Bacopa monnieri leaf extract are made from the plant's roots or stems.
  3. The vegetarian Bacopa capsules contain 100 mg of Bacopa monnieri extract each, standardized to provide at least 20% bacosides.
  4. In India, Bacopa is currently recognized by medical authorities as a valid treatment for several types of mental and intellectual dysfunction.
  5. Bacopa monnieri contains no chemical bulking agents: just Bacopa monnieri leaves.

Additional Measures to Make Bacopa Monnieri Extract Even More Effective

There are two types of intervention for improving aspects of cognition: taking nootropics such as Bacopa monnieri and brain training (21-23). A large number of studies show that brain training reduces age-related cognitive decline (24-27), and some suggest it is even more effective when combined with Bacopa monnieri supplementation.

The theory behind this potential synergy is quite simple.

Brain training reactivates neural circuits that were previously under-exploited or were in decline (28-30). As we age, many neural circuits disappear or become weaker in brain areas important for cognition and memory, such as the hippocampus, the striatum, and the prefrontal cortex (31-32). When brain training is practiced frequently, it repeatedly reactivates these circuits and improves the connection between the neurons of which they are composed (33). As a result, it helps boost or reorganize them more effectively. This reinforcement involves several molecules mentioned earlier in this article: glutamate, BDNF, and TGF; molecules whose production is promoted by Bacopa.

In other words, brain training is the stimulus that signals to the body that it is time to boost its neural circuits. Bacopa is the supplier, providing the elements it needs to do so.

It is therefore highly recommended that alongside supplementation with Bacopa monnieri, brain training, such as puzzles, brain teasers, and a range of cognitive tasks, is practiced regularly. This combined approach aims to counteract the cognitive losses that lead to decline. It needs to be maintained for at least 12 weeks to be effective.

Bacopa monnieri can also be combined with Ginkgo biloba to increase blood supply to the brain and help maintain cognitive function.

If you are interested in other natural Ayurvedic products available to buy at SuperSmart, you may wish to consider:

  • An extract of Centella asiatica, traditionally used as a psychotropic to relieve mental fatigue.
  • An extract of Boswellia serrata with an anti-inflammatory effect that may benefit the central nervous system.
  • A Tribulus terrestris supplement (Tribulus terrestris), a plant which promotes healthy circulation and is traditionally used for stimulating the libido.

Are there any Precautions to be Taken or Interactions to be Aware of?

As a precautionary measure and before you decide to buy Bacopa monnieri, note that this supplement is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Bacopa monnieri can, in theory, increase the effects of phenothiazine, a neuroleptic drug.

Note: this product should not be used as a substitute for a varied, balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. It is important to follow the guidelines on how to take it and the recommended dose and to use it by the 'best before' date. It is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women or children under 15. Keep out of children's reach. Store in a cool, dry place.

Potential Side Effects of Bacopa Monnieri Extract

Before you decide to take nutritional supplements, including Bacopa Monnieri, it is highly recommended that you first prioritize thorough research on potential Bacopa monnieri extract side effects. Bacopa Monnieri is considered as safe for most people when taken at recommended doses, although certain individuals may sometimes experience adverse effects.

Bacopa monnieri extract side effects can vary widely from person to person. You must consult your healthcare provider before you decide to buy Bacopa Monnieri online and incorporate it into your regular regimen of nutritional supplements.

Additionally, it is important to emphasize that having a firm understanding of the potential side effects of nutritional supplements can help you monitor your body's response and make necessary adjustments. Overall, research and consultation with healthcare experts are indispensable steps to ensure your well-being and safety when considering using Bacopa Monnieri or any other dietary supplement.
