Bacopa (Bacopa Monniera) Liquid Extract:
Bacopa (Bacopa monniera, aka water hyssop) is a rejuvenating herb used in the Ayurvedic tradition for its actions of benefitting the physical function of the brain & nervous system while also promoting mental clarity, awareness, and emotional equanimity. In addition to supporting the mind and nervous system, bacopa also has a strong affinity for the lymph, blood, skin, and joints, as well as the circulatory and digestive systems. It possible uses include:
- Strengthening memory, sharpening mental focus, and clarity of thinking.
- Balancing and rejuvenating the nervous system: Bacopa is an adaptogenic herb. This means that it will go into the body and regulate a particular system depending on how it is out of balance. In practice, this means that while it stimulates the mind to more clear and efficient functioning, it can also calm the mind during occasional occurrences of anxiety, nervousness, and palpitations. This “regulatory” quality of bacopa also makes it useful to promote restful sleep (in certain cases).
- Maintenance of systemic health. Bacopa is cooling & drying and has a particular affinity for lymph, blood & circulatory system, skin, joints, and digestive system. This makes it a very versatile herb in the clinic, useful for hot & damp conditions. For example, it can assist the body in cleaning lymph and blood during/after a fever… or it could be used topically on a wound that is hot and damp as an aid to healing… or it can help with sluggish digestion (by removing excess heat and dampness that obstructs the flow of digestive qi (Spleen qi).
Bacopa is warming and drying, so its use is not recommended for those who already run hot, are often thirsty, people with night sweats and hot flashes, etc… (in TCM terms those with yin deficiency or full heat).
