Bacopa monnieri has actually been shown to reduce the detrimental effects of stress and anxiety on the body by improving coping mechanism and reducing the levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Numerous studies support the anti-stress and anti-anxiety effects of this adaptogen:
1. In normal healthy participants, consumption of Bacopa monnieri at doses of 320-640 mg improved response to stress by reducing cortisol levels. 
2. In healthy urban adults, Bacopa monnieri treatment was associated with lower state anxiety. 
3. In healthy elderly participants, Bacopa monnieri treatment improved scores in a test assessing anxiety. [21-22]
4. In rats, Bacopa monnieri treatment reduced symptoms of chronic stress. 
5. In rodents, Bacopa monnieri treatment produced anti-anxiety effects comparable to those of lorazepam (benzodiazepine), a drug used to treat anxiety.
