For that student in your life who may need a little boost around exam time, may I draw your attention to the Ayurvedic herb Bacopa monnieri. Bacopa has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic studyingmedicine to help treat issues such as anxiety, asthma, insomnia, epilepsy and poor memory. It also has another name “Brahmi” taken from Sanskrit, this name relates to the herbs ability to improve mental health, intellectual function, memory and longevity.

So what are the 3 reasons students should consider Bacopa? Here they are…

1. Bacopa is an adaptogen – Adaptogenic herbs are used to strengthen the immune system and increase a person’s capacity to deal with physical and mental stress. In short they help reduce those feelings of being “stressed-out”, “burned-out” and help prevent you from getting ill. How many of us have gone through a stressful exam period only to fall prey to a cold after we were finished?

2. Bacopa is a nervine – Nervine herbs are classically used to treat mild to moderate cases of anxiety and depression as well as to promote sleep. How many of us have been anxious before an exam, felt depressed at the thought of all the work required over exam schedules and couldn’t sleep well the night before that big test? Nervine herbs help to promote a stable mood and a good night’s rest. Both are needed for proper navigation through exams.

3. Bacopa is a memory booster – in a 3 month study published in the journal Psychopharmacology, subjects taking this herb demonstrated significant improvement in speed of visual information processing (better reading ability), learning rate and memory. Another study using the syrup form of Bacopa at a dose of 350 mg 3 times per day for 3 months showed improvement in learning, memory, perception and reaction time in 20 students. In another, Bacopa improved memory, arithmetic skills and some aspects of verbal communication in students.

Overall, Bacopa is safe and well tolerated for use with students. It has a long history of use and its LD 50 (toxic rate) is very high (again safe). So there you have it, at least 3 good reasons to look into Bacopa for helping your students survive exams.

I send my best wishes for success to all students this month!
