AYURVEDA’S BRAIN & MEMORY-BOOSTING WONDER HERB. THE WEST’S NATURAL ANTIDEPRESSANT. ENHANCES MENTAL ALERTNESS, CONCENTRATION, MEMORY RETENTION. RELIEVES STRESS AND ANXIETY.

The memory tonic of Ayurveda - India’s 3,000-year-old holistic medicine system - Bacopa is one of the active herbs working as the backbone of our nootropic Mushroom 07 blend. 

We use a premium extract, sourced from the organically and consciously-grown aerial leaves of the Bacopa Monnieri or Brahmi plant as it’s known in India. Its widespread therapeutic impact - treating everything from Alzheimer’s, stress, anxiety, ADHD, epilepsy, joint pain and sexual performance issues (1) - makes it the perfect undertone to support the powerful brain-enhancing effects of our medicinal mushrooms.

Bacopa as is ancient as it is potent. The medicinal plant can be traced back to Ayurvedic literature from 800 BC. It’s known as ‘The Herb of Grace’ and ‘The Goddess of Learning’ for its positive uses in neurological and psychiatric disorders like supported by modern research and thousands of years of knowledge.

Bacosides are the main phytochemical responsible for Bacopa’s ability to enhance learning, memory, and brain functions.  For example, in a study involving healthy people aged 65 or older, taking Bacopa for 12 weeks led to improvements in mental processing speed and the ability to recall information (2). These effects are thought to occur because Bacosides promotes and enhance the kinase functioning of our brain which breaks down substances to be used by our brain cells. The perfect compound to include in a daily routine requiring intense concentration and memory retention.

Bacosides also are shown to help reduce stress, anxiety and depression (1). Along with its antioxidative power. this makes Bacopa a wonderful natural alternative to pharmaceutical antidepressants.  It’s shown to potentially increase the effects of key neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and dopamine, which can help you achieve a sense of equilibrium. One study even concluded that Bacopa displayed results comparable to that of Lorazepam (a commonly prescribed pharmaceutical tranquiliser) in all test areas (3). And, a better choice to the widely used Benzodiazepine Anxiolytics for its promotion of cognition (3).

This is where the adaptogenic properties of Bacopa come to life, helping to increase your body’s capacity to handle mental, emotional and physical stress. While also decreasing inflammation – the root of disease- for fewer body aches, a stronger immunity and a healthier you.
