Bacopa (Bacopa monnieri)
In Ayurveda, Bacopa is known to help in balancing Pitta (for soothing), Vata (for relaxing) and Kapha (for rejuvenating). In the Bacopa leaves, there are many biologically active compounds, including alkaloids, saponins and sterols. The compounds responsible for the memory/ cognition-enhancing effects of Bacopa monniera are triterpenoid saponins called bacosides. These and perhaps other compounds in the leaves increase the efficiency of nerve impulse transmission, and may also help to protect brain cells from the damaging effects of free radicals.
