Bacopa: The Brain Boosting Ancient Herb
Bacopa (also known as Brahmi) is from India and is a water plant with very powerful medicinal effects!!
It has been used to treat memory and brain-related disorders for thousands of years. It is also used to treat a broad range of mind-related health concerns like:
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Memory loss
- General tonic to fight stress
Bacopa also has far less severe side effects than the antidepressant drugs given to people for ADHA and depression/anxiety…. pretty cool stuff hey!
Bacopa is commonly used as a decorative plant in aquariums but we can’t mistake the healing properties of bacopa and it has even been shown to regulate dopamine production in the brain (very important) my video below explains this more.
Some people also take bacopa to treat backache and joint pain etc.
Lets look at some of the benefits of taking bacopa:

Bacopa is available in several different forms including: Powder, Capsule, Tea and Syrup. Stick with bacopa products that are organic or wild-crafted to reduce the likelihood of contamination and GMOs. You can find out the correct quantities and daily doses to take by visiting Dr Axe who has full in-sight regarding this and more in-depth info regarding bacopa.
