Bacopa Herbal Remedies

Dried Bacopa can be used as a tea. Its warming, woody and slightly bitter taste can be made palatable with honey. The liquid extract may be easier to administer in high enough doses to achieve the memory enhancing effects. The effectiveness of brahmi is increased by simultaneous supplementation with inositol and/or a B-vitamin complex. Studies of a propritory formula combining bacopa, astaxanthin (from Haematococcus pluvialis algae), phosphatidylserine, and Vitamin E have also show postive effects on mild congnitive impairment (MCI). 2
