Bacopa herb powder
Properties and benefits
The medicinal virtues of brahmi or bacopa are mainly based on indications that transcend the Indian practice of Ayurveda, for which there is an important documentary source. On the other hand, several clinical and pharmacological studies are under development which are giving scientific consistency to some of its therapeutic attributions, but among the scientific community there does not seem to be a unanimous agreement on its effectiveness and further evidence is awaited.
We analyze below the main applications and benefits of bacopa for health:
Support to reduce symptoms of Alzheimer's and other old age-related dementias: amnesia, memory loss, confusion, disorientation, difficulty expressing yourself consistently, and so on. Progressive memory loss and disorientation are some of the early symptoms of Alzheimer's disease, also present in other types of dementia. In various experiments with double-blind tests, such as that carried out on patients over 55 years of age with significant memory deficits, who were given half bacopa extract, and the rest, a placebo, better results were appreciated. in the first groups after 8-12 weeks of treatment. They have been observed to be more retentive in capturing new information and a decrease in the tendency to forget in the short to medium term. On the other hand, it didn't show any outstanding effects that aided them in the learning process. It is possible to consult, among others, the abstracts dedicated to bacopa published by the team of Indian nationality formed by Rakesh Tiwari, Kaustubh and others, under the title: Neurocognitive effect of the nootropic drug Brahmi (Bacopa monnieri) in Alzheimer's disease (US National Library of Medicine).
Other sources, however, question its effectiveness as a memory enhancer in elderly people already affected by neurodegenerative processes, but instead they would be guaranteed a certain action on healthy elderly people.
It has also been shown as a memory enhancer in six to eight year olds and as a support for improving hand-eye (hand-eye) coordination movements.
Possible positive effect of bacopa extract to reduce the levels of beta-amyloid protein fiber deposits in the brain, responsible for the degenerative process of the brain mass and the irreversible loss of mental faculties. It would also prevent the spread of already formed plates. This effect would open hope in the fight against Alzheimer's, but more studies are needed to prove its real effectiveness.

Evaluation of the anti-amyloidogenic potential of nootropic herbal extracts in vitro, published in the International Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Research.
