Improves Cognitive Function

The ability of Bacopa monnieri to positively affect cognitive function can be attributed to its high Bacoside content. Bacoside is a chemical compound that boosts brain power and prevents cognitive deficits. There’s a great deal of evidence supporting the beneficial effects of Bacopa monnieri on brain health:
1. An Australian survey found that Bacopa monnieri is one of the most prescribed supplements for memory problems among 60-64-year-old consumers. [1]
2. In human subjects with dementia or significant cognitive impairment, supplementation with Bacopa extract at 300-450 mg per day improved memory free recall. [2]
3. In adults aged between 40 and 65 years, Bacopa monnieri supplementation for 3 months decreased the rate of forgetting of newly acquired information. [3]
4. In healthy elderly people, Bacopa monnieri supplementation significantly improved memory acquisition and retention. [4-5]
5. In patients with anxiety, supplementation with Bacopa monnieri extract at 300 mg/day improved memory and learning. [6]
6. In participants (65 or older) without clinical signs of dementia, treatment with Bacopa monnieri improved scores in a series of tests assessing attention, immediate working memory, and verbal learning. [7]
7. In healthy participants, treatment with a special extract of Bacopa monnieri (2 x 150 mg KeenMind) for 90 days improved spatial working memory accuracy. [8]
8. In healthy older Australians, Bacopa monnieri treatment significantly improved verbal learning, memory acquisition, and delayed recall. [9]
9. In subjects with age-associated memory impairment, administration of standardized Bacopa monnieri extract at 125 mg twice daily produced significant improvement on mental control and logical memory. [10]
10. In healthy human subjects, Bacopa monnieri treatment (300 mg) significantly improved speed of visual information processing. [11]
11. A review of Bacopa monnieri benefits by Rejuvenation Research found that this medicinal herb may promote healing in people with cognitive disorders. [12]
12. In postnatal rats, Bacopa monnieri treatment significantly enhanced learning and retention of memory. [13-14]
13. In Male Wistar rats, oral supplementation with alcoholic extract of Bacopa monnieri for 2 weeks improved spatial memory in the Morris water maze test. [15]
14. In mice with scopolamine-induced cognitive impairment, supplementation with Bacopa monnieri extract reversed short-term and long-term amnesia. [16]
15. In mice with diazepam-induced amnesia, supplementation with Bacopa monnieri suppressed cognitive impairment. [17]
16. In an Alzheimer’s disease animal model, Bacopa monnieri treatment reduced the levels of brain beta-amyloid, which are the causative agent of the disease. [18]
