Used in Ayurveda for centuries, Bacopa (Bacopa monniera) is included in the Brahmi category of herbs, supporting normal function of the mind, intellect, consciousness and good spirit. According to Alternative Medicine Review (March 2004), "Recent research has focused primarily on Bacopa's cognitive effects, specifically memory, learning, and concentration, and results support the traditional Ayurvedic claims."
Scholars at the University of Wollongong in Australia conducted double-blind, placebo-controlled studies on Bacopa, showing it to support brain function. A similar study showed Bacopa helped support normal memory retention.
Researchers from Uttar Pradesh, India working with Frankston Hospital in Victoria, Australia, also found Bacopa showed a supportive effect on memory control and occasional age-associated memory challenges. (Indian Journal of Psychiatry, 2004, 48:4, 238-242)
Bacopa also supports normal levels of antioxidants and enzymes such as superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT) and glutathione peroxidase (GPX), maintaining the structural integrity of the mitochondrial membrane that is an important respiratory organelle within the cell. (NIH, PubMed, 2005)
