Bacopa for Memory and Cognition -- Bacopa leaves and powder


Bacopa (Bacopa monnieri) is an herb promoted to improve memory and cognition. It is sometimes found in formulas promoted for cognitive function or brain health, such as Alpha Brain, that include other ingredients such as ginkgo or ashwagandha.

However, studies investigating the effects of bacopa supplementation in people have generally been conducted in healthy adults without memory or cognitive deficits. Bacopa has also been studied for improving sleep in people with insomnia, for improving mood, and for symptoms of ADHD in children.
