This herb, whose antioxidant properties have long been linked to improved learning skills, comes from the marshlands of India, where for thousands of years it was the go-to brain-sharpening supp of the rajas, or local rulers, of India.
Science seems to back up Bacopa’s use. The journal Phytotherapy Research reported that subjects who took Bacopa for 90 days saw a boost in cognition—specifically, improvement in their spatial memory, which is related to the ability to navigate a familiar place.
As an added benefit, Bacopa may also relieve depression caused by chronic stress, according to a 2014 study published in Psychiatry Investigation—and we all know what stress can do to the ability to think straight.
Bacopa is a prime ingredient in Onnit’s Alpha Brain, available at onnit.com.
