Description

Aor Bacopa Enlighten 60 Veg Capsules:

Ayurvedic Support for Healthy Mental Function.

  • A powerful plant extract for improving mental function
  • Helps improve memory and other mental functions
  • Protects the nervous system and boosts antioxidant defenses in the brain
  • Clinically researched and used for centuries to support brain and nervous system function

Bacopa Enlighten™ contains Bacopa monnieri Linn, an herb used for the support of cognitive function.

Bacopa Enlighten is a standardized extract of Bacopa monnieri, an herb used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine to support cognitive function and memory. In India, Bacopa is often given to babies in the hopes that it will open the gateway to intelligence.

Bacopa has traditionally been used for improving cognitive functions such as those needed for math and memory skills, for decreasing angst and for reducing mental fatigue at work. It improves the processing of visual information to help increase the rate of learning, lower the rate of forgetfulness, and improve the ability to consolidate new information.

Bacopa has also been studied in children with and without ADHD, and benefits have been shown in memory and learning in both scenarios. Moreover, animal studies have shown that Bacopa prevents drug induced memory loss and increases protein synthesis in the brain as well as the production of key neural antioxidant enzymes, protecting brain cells from oxidative damage. Young or old, those who want to preserve healthy brain function and memory performance can benefit from Bacopa Enlighten.

Research:

Cognitive Function in Children

It is not surprising that most of the earlier human Bacopa trials were performed in children. In one double-blind, placebo controlled study, 110 boys aged 10 to 13 of average intelligence (as measured on IQ tests) took either a Bacopa supplement or a dummy wafer every day for 9 months. Before and after starting the supplement program, the boys took a battery of tests for brain function, including intelligence, memory, and reaction time.  At the end of the trial, there were no significant improvements in the cognitive functioning of the boys who had been given the dummy wafers. But math skills, direct memories, and several subtests of a variation on the IQ tests were all significantly improved in the boys who took the Bacopa supplement.

Stress, Productivity & Blood Pressure Stabilization

Studies have now also been performed in adults. One of them focused on people with worry – another aspect of cognitive function for which Bacopa is traditionally believed to be helpful. After four weeks of taking a Bacopa syrup, a group of 35 workers considered worriers were found to have improved memory, less stress, better social adjustment (as measured by the Asthana-Bell adjustment inventory), and less mental fatigue at work – something measurable in terms of greater work output. The supplement also helped to regulate their blood pressure.

Good Things Take Time

All of these effects were mild, however – probably because of the short duration of the trial. A longer (twelve-week), better-designed study on the brain-boosting powers of Bacopa has given the herb a much stronger endorsement. Australian researchers performed a double-blind, placebo-controlled study involving 46 healthy men and women. The whole group took a battery of neuropsychological tests. Then, half of this group took 300 mg daily of a Bacopa supplement (carefully standardized to contain at least 50% of the two known active markers, bacosides A and B) while the other half took a placebo.

The participants were re-tested five weeks later, and again at the twelve week mark. No significant differences between the folks taking the real supplement and those taking the bogus pill were reported after the first five weeks – a fact which might explain why the effects in the four-week syrup study, discussed above, were so mild. But at the end of the twelve-week study, compared to the group taking the placebo pill, men and women supplementing with Bacopa showed significant improvements in cognitive function, processing visual information 15% faster as measured by the inspection time (IT) test, showing a 14% greater rate of learning, a 33% lower rate of forgetting, verbal information, along with a remarkable 108% better ability to consolidate new information without interference from previously-learned data (“proactive interference”) – all detected by Rey’s Auditory Verbal Learning Test (AVLT), still the standard for verbal learning tests.

Safe and Sound

Few side effects were seen in the study, the most notable being an increase in thirst and urination. And, interestingly, the people taking Bacopa actually suffered fewer headaches than did those getting the dummy pills!

Neuroprotective Effects in Animals

Recent animal studies have given us some exciting clues about the potential neuroprotective effects of this Ayurvedic secret. Bacopa has been shown to protect animals from drug-induced memory losses and the depletion of the key memory neurotransmitter acetylcholine in the hippocampus – the seahorse-shaped organ of the brain responsible for sorting new information for storage into memory. It has also been found to increase the synthesis of new protein in the rodent brain. But the most exciting of the recent animal studies shows that Bacopa boosts the brain’s production of the key protective antioxidant enzymes superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px), and catalase (CAT). In this, Bacopa is closely paralleling the effects of deprenyl (selegiline), a drug prescribed for Parkinson’s disease, which is also being taken by many people in the life extension movement because animal studies suggest that it has potent anti-aging effect. Remarkably, however, the effects of Bacopa were shown to be even broader ranging than those of deprenyl: Bacopa cranked up levels of these enzymes in every tested area of the brain, while deprenyl failed to upregulate these enzymes in the hippocampus.
