Bacopa monnieri is a perennial, creeping herb native to the wetlands of southern and Eastern India, Australia, Europe, Africa, Asia, and North and South America. It is long in the fields of wild vegetables in summer and autumn season.
Bacopa monnieri contains large amounts of potassium salt, containing a lot of dihydroxyethyl amine, malic acid, arrows sugar, vitamin B1, B2 and other nutrients. In addition, experiments have confirmed it has a strong inhibitory effect on for example shigella, escherichia coli, staphylococcus aureus and other bacteria, which is why it is as a “natural antibiotic”.
- Cognitive Function. In India, bacopa is known as a brain tonic because it can be used to improve learning problems, memory and concentration. Recent research backs up this traditional usage. A study on older, healthy Australians at Southern Cross University in New South Wales, Australia found that bacopa has a remarkable ability to improve memory acquisition and retention. The effect of promoting cognitive function is mainly due to the two active saponins, A and B, in ethanol extract.
- Alzheimer’s. One 2007 study at Texas A&M University found that bacopa reduced amyloid deposits in mice with Alzheimer’s.
- Antidepressant. Studies in humans have found that bacopa supplements may help to reduce stress and anxiety. These studies found that it needs to be taken regularly in order to achieve these results..
- Anxiolytic. By different from mechanisms from benzodiazepines, saponins can improve cognitive function while producing anti-anxiety effect, while traditional calming medications can cause dementia side effects. Not only does not cause dementia, but can enhance the memory function of dementia animals.
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome. One study found that bacopa, when taking with bael fruit, was more effective than conventional treatment in patients with severe diarrhea associated with irritable bowel syndrome. In patients with constipation as the main IBS symptom, conventional treatment worked better. However, both conventional treatment and the bacopa/bael treatment worked better than placebo in all cases.
- Anti-Fungal. A study published in the International Journal of Pharmacology found that bacopa has antifungal properties against Microsporum (responsible for ringworm and other diseases), Aspergillus flavus (infects the lungs and brain a and produces aflatoxin, a carcinogen), Aspergillus niger (causes fungal ear infections and lung disease), and Trichophyton rubrum (responsible for athlete’s foot, jock itch, and ringworm).
