Bacopa monnieri, also known as water hyssop, is an herb commonly used in Ayurveda. Studies have shown that supplementing Bacopa can support overall cognitive function, 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 proliferation 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).
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.
Bacopa can increase a chemical in the body called acetylcholine. Acetylcholine plays a big part in many important body functions. Some medications, called anticholinergic drugs, block the effects of acetylcholine in the body. Taking bacopa might decrease the effects of anticholinergic drugs.
Bacopa can increase a chemical in the body called acetylcholine. Some medications that are used for glaucoma, Alzheimer disease, and other conditions, also increase acetylcholine levels. Taking bacopa with these medications might increase the chance of side effects.
The body naturally produces thyroid hormones. Bacopa might increase how much thyroid hormone is produced. Taking bacopa with thyroid hormone might cause too much thyroid hormone in the body, and increase its effects and side effects.
Conclusion: This meta-analysis suggests that Bacopa monnieri has the potential to improve cognition, particularly speed of attention but only a large well designed 'head-to-head' trial against an existing medication will provide definitive data on its efficacy on healthy or dementia patients using a standardized preparation.
Bacopa monnieri (Brahmi) is a well-known perennial, creeping herb of the Indian Ayurveda system; it contains numerous bioactive phytoconstituents implicated in the therapeutic management of several life-threatening diseases. This herb was used by Ancient Vedic scholars due to its pharmacological effect, especially as a nerve tonic and nootropic booster. However, to better understand the roles of Bacopa monnieri extract (BME) in neurological disorders and memory-related diseases, it is necessary to understand its active phytochemical constituents and their molecular mechanisms. Several clinical studies suggested that BME have neuroprotective effects, making it worth revising a notable herb. Here we investigated the contours of BME's phytochemistry and pharmacological features, focusing on neuronal disorders. We further analyzed the underlying molecular mechanisms in therapeutic intervention. Various clinical concerns and synergistic potential of BME were explored for their effective use in cognition and neuroprotection. The generation of reactive oxygen species increases neuroinflammation and neurotoxicity and is associated with Tau and amyloid-beta (Aβ) aggregation, leading to a neurological disorder. Our findings provide deeper mechanistic insights into the neuroprotective roles of BME, which can be further implicated in the therapeutic management of neurological disorders and exerting cognitive-enhancing effects.
Objectives: Study aims were to evaluate effects of Bacopa monnieri whole plant standardized dry extract on cognitive function and affect and its safety and tolerability in healthy elderly study participants.
Bacopa monnieri is an herb that grows in marshy wetlands and tropical regions. It goes by many names, including brahmi, water hyssop, and herb of grace. Ayurvedic traditional remedies use bacopa to improve cognition, relieve stress, reduce inflammation, and enhance longevity. Modern research shows that Bacopa monnieri may be beneficial for boosting cognition, alleviating stress, reducing inflammation, and more.
Bacopa monnieri is rich in an antioxidant compound called bacosides. It may boost levels of other antioxidants as well, including superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), and reduced glutathione (GSH). Researchers have hypothesized that the bacosides are responsible for much of the claims that bacopa can reduce stress, enhance longevity, and boost cognitive function. Bacosides protect against oxidative stress by scavenging free radicals and preventing lipid peroxidation. Lipid peroxidation occurs when oxidants steal electrons from the lipids in cell membranes, ultimately causing damage to the cell. Free radicals also cause oxidative stress, inflammation, and premature cellular aging.
Bacopa helps modulate the stress response and may minimize the intensity of perceived stressors. A human study found that bacopa exerts anxiolytic effects by reducing levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Researchers also confirmed bacopa has adaptogenic properties and improves mood during periods of stress.
Nootropic supplements primarily exert effects on several areas of cognition, including memory, alertness, and overall function. Bacopa monnieri appears to exert nootropic effects on individuals of all ages. Human studies hold strong promise. Bacopa supplements successfully improved information retention, retention speed, rate of learning, verbal learning, and overall memory in healthy adults ranging from the ages of 18 to 60. Another study reported similar effects in elderly adults.
Taking Bacopa monnieri powder on an empty stomach may cause gastrointestinal side effects. These include nausea, bloating, stomach cramps, and diarrhea. Take bacopa supplements with food to mitigate these side effects. Individuals taking amitriptyline should consult with a physician before taking Bacopa monnieri supplements, as bacopa may enhance the bioavailability of this medication.
Obviously NMDAR becomes choice of an important therapeutic target for the neurobiologists for HE management [25, 26]. Some earlier studies conducted in vivo and in vitro using NMDAR antagonists indeed demonstrated desirable results; however, this approach was found to produce undesirable neurological complications during the clinical trials [25, 27]. This is not surprising as NMDAR activity is critical for maintaining normal neurophysiology including higher order brain functions and memory consolidation mechanisms . Therefore, instead of blocking NMDAR channel, modulation of NMDAR activity by alterations in its functional composition and downstream signaling seems to be of special scientific merit. However, this evolving concept needs to be examined in the animal models with excitotoxic neurological problems. Since development of HE is related with NMDAR led excitotoxicity  and that herbal formulations are now evident to modulate brain chemistry in many ways, the present work was undertaken to evaluate whether Bacopa monnieri (BM) extract, a known neuroprotectant, is able to modulate NMDAR composition and related downstream events in cerebellum of the CLF induced HE rats.
Importantly, though information is limited, efficacy of BM extract has also been shown against glutamate toxicity via modulating NMDAR1 gene expression and in turn affecting glutamatergic signaling . In our previous reports, we have observed a direct association between overexpression of the constitutive NR1, nNOS activation, and enhanced NO production in cerebellum of the CLF rats exhibiting HE characteristics [2, 13, 14]. Importantly, we could also observe reciprocal expression of NR2A and NR2B in the cerebellum of those rats (data from this paper). This tempted us to investigate whether administration of BME is able to alter this unusual NR2A/2B composition and thus NMDAR-nNOS pathway in the cerebellum of the HE rats.
The combination of constituent NMDAR subunits is evident to impart unique neurophysiological role of this glutamate receptor. The NR2A dominating combination is known to mediate neuroprotection whereas those of NR2B induce neuronal death. According to Figures 1(a) and 1(b), as compared to the control rats, level of NR2A is found to be significantly reduced () with a concomitant increase in NR2B level in the cerebellum of the CLF rats (Figures 1(c) and 1(d)), resulting in a significant decline in NR2A/2B ratio (Figure 1(e)). However, this pattern is observed to be recovered back with a significant enhancement of NR2A (Figures 1(a) and 1(b)) and a decline of NR2B (Figures 1(c) and 1(d)), resulting into attaining a control level NR2A/2B ratio (Figure 1(e)) in the cerebellum of the CLF rats treated with the BM extract.
Neuronal NOS (nNOS) has a direct molecular link with NMDAR and therefore, it is considered to be the main determinant of NMDAR activation based downstream signaling in the postsynaptic neurons. Accordingly, overactivation of nNOS is considered associated with the neuronal changes associated with NMDAR led excitotoxicity. As depicted in Figures 2(a) and 2(b), nNOS expression is observed to be enhanced significantly () in the cerebellum of the CLF rats as compared to the control group rats. Moreover, due to the oral administration of BM extract, level of this enzyme is observed to be reduced up to the control value (Figures 2(a) and 2(b)). Such a pattern could coincide well with the similar changes in the NO level in cerebellum of the CLF and BM extract treated CLF rats (Figure 2(c)).
Bcl2 (antiapoptotic) and Bax (proapoptotic) ratio serves as a rheostat to determine cell susceptibility to apoptosis. According to Figures 3(a) and 3(c), as compared to the control group rats, level of Bcl2 is found to be declined significantly () with a concomitant increase in the Bax level resulting in a significant decline () in Bcl2/Bax ratio (Figure 3(e)) in cerebellum of the CLF rats. However, after treatment with BM extract, the pattern of Bcl2/Bax ratio is observed to regain its normal range in cerebellum of those CLF rats (Figure 3(e)). 59ce067264
