Ancient Ayurvedic texts were the first to document Bacopa Monnieri’s nootropic effects– recommended by practitioners as a study aid to help commit lengthy text passages to memory . Modern research corroborates the ancient references to Bacopa Monnieri’s memory enhancing potential suggesting that it improves memory by upregulating the neural activity of acytylcholine – a key neurotransmitter for memory formation and learning retention. Bacopa Monnieri’s potential benefits are also indicated by its role as adaptogen, protecting the nervous system against the detrimental effects of stress on a cognitive, physiological, and chemical level .
