Bacopa in Ayurveda:
Bacopa has been used in the Indian medical system of Ayurveda since the 6th century A.D. to help improve mental performance. Bacopa is the classic Ayurvedic nervine and brain tonic. Bacopa is included in a class of Ayurvedic herbs called "Brahmi",in honor of Brahma, the creator, in the trinity with Vishnu, the preserver, and Shiva, the destroyer. Literally translated this mean "Godlike". Obviously, Bacopa is held in great esteem in the science of Ayurveda to earn this title, and rightfully so due to its multitudinous effects on the body and mind.
Brahmi has been known to be a pacifier of all three doshas, mainly kapha and vata. Ayurvedic physicians believe it to be ideal for counteracting the vitiated vata dosha, the factor which governs the nervous system. Ayurvedic tests describe Brahmi as medhya, a herb that braces the mind to carry cognitive functions and intellectual pursuits. But ancient authors seem to believe that the healing effects of Brahmi extend far beyond mind and brain. Brahmi is not only a memory-booster and intellect-promoting herb; it is also a relaxing and digestive agent.
