Bacopa Monnieri (Bacosides) Benefits
Bacopa Monnieri is an excellent supplement to healthy mood. [2, 3] This promotion of healthy mood also benefits memory.*
Bacopa is also able to supplement cognition beyond its mood promoting abilities. However,Â its mechanism of action for enhancing cognition is not entirely understood. One possible method is by promoting neuronal transmission, which results in the promotion of dendrite growth, or viaÂ the serotonergic system, which positively influences the memory neurotransmitter acetylcholine. What setsÂ this nootropic apart from many others is that it benefits individuals with healthy cognitive function of all age groups.* [4, 5, 6, 7, 8]
