Bacopa Monnieri

Read our Ginkgo biloba Review

This herb has been consumed throughout history as a food source and has been used in traditional medicine for various conditions including asthma, joint and muscle pain, ear and eye infections. However, the degree to which this herb acts as a nootropic is still up for debate. Some studies have suggested that it doesn't provide adequate cognitive enhancement, but other sources claim that long term administration improves attention, mental clarity, executive functioning and long-term memory. This can be attributed to its ability to enhance circulation in the brain and body and provides feeling of natural energy and mental focus through modulation of certain neurotransmitters.



This is a perennial herb that is considered medicinal for various conditions, being an alternative treatment for asthma, epilepsy, tumors, ulcers, indigestion, inflammation and many other ailments. It wasn't until recently that this herb got attention as a potential nootropic supplement demonstrating its efficiency in enhancing cognitive function through improvement in synaptic transmission and electrical conductivity in the brain that signals our neurons. Some double-blind studies have demonstrated efficacy at providing anti-anxiety effects, leading to reduction in stress and improving sleep patterns.
