Bacopa monnieri, also known as water hyssop, is an herb commonly used in Ayurveda. Studies have shown that supplementing Bacopa can support overall cognitive function, both by supporting memory formation and by helping to manage occasional stress.
Bacopa supports both the dopaminergic and serotonergic systems but works mainly by supporting the rate at which neurons communicate by increasing the proliferation of dendrites (nerve endings), thus facilitating communication between brain cells.
Our Bacopa extract is standardized to 20% bacosides (the active ingredient in the Bacopa herb).
When taken as a supplement for general cognitive function, the recommended dosage of Bacomind is two 150 mg capsules for a 300 mg total dose. Bacopa should be taken with food, as taking it on an empty stomach increases chances of experiencing adverse gastrointestinal side effects and prevents its absorption.
Bacopa extract is very well tolerated at typical doses and adverse side effects are rare. Most side effects are gastrointestinal in nature and can be avoided by taking Bacopa with food. These include stomach cramps, nausea, bloating, and diarrhea. Other common adverse side effects include dry mouth and fatigue.
