Bacopa monnieri, also known as water hyssop, is an herb commonly used in Ayurveda. Studies have shown that supplementing Bacopa can support overall cognition, 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 growth 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 cognition, the typical dose of a 20% Bacopa extract is 1-2 capsules for a dose of 450 – 900 mg. 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 Monnieri Extract Side Effects
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.
