Bacopa Monnieri Capsules (250mg)
Whole-Plant Extract, 50% Bacosides (HPLC)
What is Bacopa Monnieri?
Bacopa Monnieri (Brahmi) is a plant extract that assists in elevating mental acuity while supporting the physiological processes involved in relaxation. Bacopa is regarded as an important revitalizing nootropic and adaptogenic herb for nerve and brain cells, which means it plays an important role in the treatment of cognitive disorders (such as those involved with aging). Bacopa has been linked, through research, to improve cognition along with the formation of memories.
Why is our Bacopa Extract Special?
Virtually all Bacopa extracts on the market verify their Bacoside content by spectrophotometric analysis, commonly known as UV/Light analysis. Patented Extracts such as Synapsa and Bacognize use these forms of analysis for their Bacosides.
The Bacosides in our Bacopa extract are verified by High-performance liquid chromatography or HPLC. This is the definitive standard for accurately identifying the total Bacoside content of a Bacopa extract.
To demonstrate this, we had one of our older Bacopa extracts analyzed using the two analytical techniques, which we compare below:
As you can see, an identical extract measured with the two different analytical methods yields a vastly different Bacoside content and demonstrates just how much more accurate HPLC testing is.
All of our own Bacopa is now strictly certified over 50% Bacosides by HPLC, making it one of the most potent and sought after Bacopa extracts available.
Bacopa Monnieri Benefits
Bacopa carries properties that improve mental functions by a modulation of the dopaminergic and serotonergic neurotransmission. It works by restoring the frontal cortical muscarinic and cholinergic receptor activities and so is used to improve cognitive performance, memory, concentration and the anxiety threshold.
Bacopa Monnieri has also shown to have a positive effect on GABA receptors in the brain, enhancing the effects of GABA in the body.
