The Science of ThinkWell
Found throughout India in wet areas, Bacopa (Bacopa monnieri) is a succulent ground creeper with white to violet or pale blue flowers. In Ayurevda, Bacopa is traditionally used to enhance memory. Studies have shown that oral administration of Bacopa to normal rats significantly improves memory and learning ability1 and inhibits free radical damage to brain cells in vitro.2 Increased memory and learning ability was found from active constituents of Bacopa known as bacosides.3 Gotu Kola
(Centella asiatica) is an edible creeper with light violet flowers. Like Bacopa, Gotu kola is is found in moist tropical areas throughout India and is traditionally used in Ayurveda to enhance memory.7 Got kola has also been used promote mental calm and relaxation during meditation.8 Studies show that orally administered to normal rats, Gotu kola significantly increases memory,9, 10 learning ability, antioxidant activity in the brain9 and resistance to psychological and physical stress.11, 12 In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, healthy men and women given a single oral dose of Gotu kola extract showed a significantly reduced response to acute stress.8
A natural derivative of soy lecithin, phosphatidylserine (fos-fa-tidle-serine) or PS significantly enhanced the cognitive abilities of rats when fed to them daily.13 A randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled study found that for healthy men and women taking PS (400 mg/day) with meals, the level of psychological stress in response to emotional and mental stressors significantly decreased. As a further benefit, their levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, were significantly dampened in response to the stressors.14
