What Is It?
Bacopa Enlighten is Bacopa monnieri Linn, an herb used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine to support cognitive function. In India, Bacopa is often given to babies in the hopes that it will open the gateway to intelligence.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: Bacopa has traditionally been used for improving cognitive functions such as those needed for math and memory skills, for decreasing angst and for reducing mental fatigue at work. It improves the processing of visual information to help increase the rate of learning, lower the rate of forgetting, and improve the ability to consolidate new information. Animal studies have shown that Bacopa prevents drug induced memory loss and increases protein synthesis in the brain as well as the production of key neural antioxidant enzymes, protecting brain cells from oxidative stress.
Who Should Take It?
Young or old, those who want to preserve healthy brain function and performance can benefit from Bacopa.
Take 1 capsule daily with/without food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
