Medicinal Uses - Bacopa/ brahmi is one of the best herbs to possibly increase memory naturally without side effects. Recent scientific studies show that Bacopa Monnieri (Brahmi) may support both short and long term memory function as well as possibly enhancing learning, concentration, and nourishing the nervous system. Special alkaloids in Bacopa Monnieri called bacopasides may help nourish and increase the coordination of brain neurons combating mental fatigue and leading to increased concentration and stamina. Bacopa is not only useful against common everyday forgetfulness, but many students use it to help boost memory function during exams. When used for this purpose, it is optimal to start taking bacopa 1 month prior to the exam.
