Bacopa monnieri (Indian pennywort), also known as Brahmi, is a nootropic medicinal herb, occupying a special place in Ayurveda, i.e. the traditional system of Indian medicine. This plant comes mainly from the wetlands of Australia and the south of India and was most often used by locals to achieve longevity and improve cognitive function. As some sources say, Vedic scholars readily used Bacopa monnieri to facilitate remembering the lyrics of long sacred songs or holy books.
Brahmi's health-promoting properties are not just premises passed down from generation to generation. The therapeutic potential has been analyzed in many studies, which confirmed that the plant exerts adaptogenic, anti-stress and anxiolytic effects, as well as improves memory and concentration. In addition, it can neutralize free radicals.
The most important group of compounds found in Bacopa monnieri are bacosides, which are triterpenoid saponins. The highest activity is shown by bacoside A and bacoside B. Of all the compounds found in the plant, they are the most responsible for its pro-cognitive properties.
Positive effect on concentration and memory process
Bacosides have a documented neuroprotective effect, which is associated with their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity (the brain is extremely susceptible to oxidative stress), as well as more efficient dendrite proliferation. They also contribute to the optimal functioning of the nervous system through the regulation of the receptors of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), a neurotransmitter with sedative and anxiolytic effects.
Besides, Bacopa monnieri increases the level of acetylcholine (ACh) – a neurotransmitter involved, among others, in the process of knowledge acquisition, memory, and concentration. This happens in two ways – first, it inhibits acetylcholinesterase (the enzyme responsible for breaking down ACh), and secondly, it activates choline acetyltransferase (the enzyme that determines ACh synthesis).
Natural protection against stressors
Bacopa monnieri is classified to adaptogens – substances that help the body to function in adverse conditions (mainly when exposed to various types of stressors). According to available studies, bacosides can modulate the body's response to stress, e.g. by affecting serotonin and dopamine levels.
In summary, Apollo's Hegemony Bacopa Monnieri is a source of proven, natural adaptogen. The product is recommended in particular for people with memory and concentration problems, who are simultaneously seeking a way to calm down and reduce stress.

Bacopa monnieri, due to its subtle relaxing action, may – to some extent – reduce the level of motivation to act, especially when used in the morning. However, there is a trick to it – just take it in the company of a stimulant or simply coffee.
Besides, note that Brahmi-based extracts dissolve in fat, hence it is not advisable to take it on an empty stomach, but along with a meal.
It should also be borne in mind that Bacopa monnieri may interact with some groups of drugs (including antidepressants, neuroleptics, benzodiazepines).
