Bacopa Extract - The Smart Herb
The primary principle of Ayurveda is to maintain a healthful balance of the mind and the body. A healthy mental state is a key factor in maintaining this balance, especially during times when you want to learn and use new information. Planetary Formulas Bacopa Extract offers healthy support for improving both learning and memory that is based on Ayurvedic traditional herbalism as well as modern clinical research data.
Bacopa monniera is one of the most important herbs in the 5,000 year old tradition of Ayurvedic healing. Also, known as Brahmi, its uses included improving memory and learning. Bacopa seems to work on specific pathways for memory, learning and relaxation. In various human studies, bacopa intake has been associated with faster information processing, increased learning rates, improved memory retention and reduced testing anxiety in as little as 12 weeks.
One of the most surprising effects of bacopa is on reducing anxiety during testing. Test or performance anxiety can affect your performance. But with bacopa, you can work towards having a performance edge instead of performance anxiety.
