Memory and mood support from flowers!

Memory and mood support from flowers!

I’ve used Bacopa flowers in my gardens for years, but I had no idea they were medicinal.  Bacopa has actually been a staple in Ayurvedic medicine and has been used in herbal medicine for centuries. 

HAVN Life Bacopa Brain uses the powerful Bacopa plant extract clinically proven to support cognitive function and the nervous system. Bacopa has been shown to enhance memory because it is a potent neuroprotector that works to balance neurotransmitters while boosting cerebral blood flow.

Bacopa may protect brain cells from chemicals involved in Alzheimer's.  Bacopa contains powerful antioxidants called bacosides.  These have been shown to neutralize and prevent fat molecules from reacting with free radicals.  This is important because when fat molecules react with free radicals, they undergo a process called lipid peroxidation and that process is linked to several neurodegenerative conditions like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. 

Bacopa has also been shown to increase dendric length and branching. Dendrites are parts of nerve cells in the brain that are closely linked to learning and memory.  This is exciting, as dendrite length diminishes with age.

Bacopa is considered an adaptogen.  It may help reduce stress and anxiety by elevating mood and reducing cortisol levels. Bacopa can calm you during stressful times, promote restful sleep, and improve your sense of concentration and alertness.

I have some lingering effects from a concussion, 2 years ago.  As a result, I find I am not able to multi-task at all, and if I am fatigued or stressed, I have trouble focusing on even a single task. I have been taking HAVN Life's Bacopa Brain for just over a week now and have already noticed a definite improvement in clarity and focus.  Nootropics (supplements that improve cognitive function) generally take time to work.  The effects become stronger the longer you take it.
