Brahmi extract 50% | Bacopa monnieri

Properties: Bacopa’s traditional name – Brahmi – stems from the name of a very important deity in the Hindu pantheon – Brahma. This fact alone signifies how highly this plant was valued in ancient India. Nowadays, when its properties are well-known, we might wonder whether the name hides the promise of god-like powers – at least in terms of enhancing human capacities. Let’s see.

Although Brahma is mortal, he is blessed with longevity – his lifespan equals this of the Universe. Brahmi supplementation may not let us live that long, but scientific studies unanimously proved that it can significantly reduce neurodegeneration associated with aging. Thus, it helps to maintain optimal cognitive functioning longer. Moreover, the length of lifespan is undoubtedly associated with the attitude towards life. Unsurprisingly, those who experience more stress live shorter. Surprisingly, however, scientific studies prove that Brahmi has stress-relieving properties. On top of that, this herb has a confirmed upregulating effect on the activity of serotonin – “happiness hormone”. Taken together, its promise of a long life draws close to reality.

Brahma is a god – the primordial entity who gave rise to all living forms. It is unlikely that we will reach a creative potential comparable with this offered to Brahma by Wishnu. It is, however, possible that we will increase our creativity. Brahmi supplementation results in better blood flow to the brain. The increase reaches around 25%. On top of that, the concentration of acetylcholine is doubled – which should be enough to feel creative, almost like a god. It can also grant a god-like insight into the structure of reality, because it helps to acquire new information and activates processes responsible for storing it in the long-term memory. To put it simply, Brahmi makes learning quick and easy. So, does Brahmi deserve its name? Certainly it allows us to recognize our inner godly potential. It is hard to believe that some people consider it to be just a weed!

Occurrence: Small-leaved bacopa (Bacopa monnieri) is a perennial plant from the plantain family (Plantaginaceae). Its leaves are bright green, fleshy and elongated, whereas its flowers are five-petalled, pink or purple, and rather tiny. It grows in wetlands, near shallow water bodies on the height up to 1300 m above sea level. Bacopa is very widespread – it can be found all over the world, from temperate to tropical climates. However, it is found mainly in India. In traditional Indian medicine – Ayurveda – bacopa has been used for over 5000 years. In this system it is considered a Medhya Rasayanas – an essential herb that rejuvenates and brings about clarity and peace of mind. Ancient herbalist Ćaraka, the author of medical textbooks written in the VII century, recommends Brahmi as a remedy for anxiety and lack of concentration.

Biochemistry: The substances that cause most of the beneficial effects of small-leaved bacopa are bacosides A and B, with their derivatives. From the chemical perspective, they belong to steroid saponins and constitute roughly 8% of the fried leaf matter. Besides that, the plant contains also: alkaloids (herpestine, bramine), flavonoids (luteolin, apigenin), phenol compounds, organic acids (including betulinic acid), phytosterols, tannins, terpenoids, as well as proteins, amino sugars and carbohydrates.

Fun fact: Traditional name of Bacopa monnieri signifies how valued are its healing properties in India. Bacopa received the name Brahmi in honor of Brahma – the creator of the world and the leader of Hindu pantheon.

How does Brahmi extract 50% | Bacopa monnieri work?

Supports the nervous system: Small-leaved bacopa has neuroprotective properties. Most importantly, it helps to slow down the neurodegenerative processes associated with aging. Supplementation of Brahmi reduces the amount of lipofuscin stored in the neurons. High level of lipofuscin is considered to be an indicator of neurodegeneration. This effect is especially prominent in the neocortex. Moreover, active compounds contained in Brahmi have the ability to chelate (bind) heavy metals which helps to expel them from the organism. Additionally, this herb stimulates functioning of antioxidant enzymes and the neutralization of free radicals.

Improves stress resilience: Brahmi belongs to adaptogens that help the organism to accommodate to the adverse changes in the environment. Results of multiple scientific studies demonstrate that Brahmi reduces the expression of stress biomarkers – substances produced in the body in response to stress. Importantly, this effect has been identified in all major regions of the brain. Therefore, this herb prevents the stress-induced reduction of important neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin, and adrenaline. On top of that, it improves synaptic transmission. For all of these reasons Brahmi supplementation counteracts negative consequences of stress and helps to keep the cool head even in demanding situations.

Supports memory and focus: Results of multiple tests confirmed that Brahmi has a beneficial influence on memory, concentration, and other cognitive faculties. Its supplementation can increase the blood flow in the brain by 25%, therefore providing neurons with extra oxygen and nutrients that increase their efficiency. Moreover, Brahmi decreases the amount of enzyme that decomposes acetylcholine and thereby increases its available amounts even by 110%. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter responsible mainly for the information transmission in the brain. In the area of the hippocampus – a structure concerned with long-term memory – bacopa stimulates the development of dendrites and facilitates the conduction of signals between neurons . Taken together, these effects enable more effective learning. What is best, they last for even a few weeks after the discontinuation of supplementation.

Supports positive mood: Clinical trials confirm that bacosides present in Brahmi are effective in soothing conditions such as low mood or anxiety. They operate by increasing the activity of serotonin – a neurotransmitter often called the “happiness hormone”. Bacopa stimulates the transportation of serotonin molecules to synapses, where they bind with dedicated receptors and thereby modulate neuronal activity. Active compounds found in Brahmi also stimulate the activity of another important neurotransmitter – GABA. It is the main inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain, whose role is to prevent overactivity of the central nervous system and the whole organism. Optimization of these two areas of neuronal processing leads to psychological well-being that can be maintained even in adverse circumstances.
