Bacopa is the classic Ayurvedic nervine and brain tonic. It has been reported that the plant has been used for thousands of years as a traditional Ayurvedic treatment for epilepsy, asthma, and mental clarity. Bacopa is included in a class of Ayurvedic herbs called “Brahmi”, 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. This herb is used to maintain healthy learning, memory, speech, imagination, and ease nervous and mental strain.*
*A Note on Dosage: It is advisable to take Brahmi for at least three months for significant effects and thereafter adjust the dose to suit the individual. It is wise to treat the brain like a muscle – use it or lose it. Regular, stimulating mental activities keep the brain sharp, just as a vigorous workout helps keep muscles fit and performing optimally. The brain is susceptible to dehydration, so drink plenty of clean, pure fluids as part of any brain nutrition program. Supplemental herbs such as Bacopa may prove efficacious to a brain power plan, but give any supplement program enough time to work before evaluating its effects. Based on the metabolic rate of brain cells, the benefits may not be noticed for at least 90 days.
Extraction Information:Tattva’s Herbs natural supplements combine the wisdom of Mother Nature with the very latest technology known as supercritical extraction. This state of the art technology delivers a very pure extract that is both full spectrum and extremely concentrated at the same time. It is so pure that you can actually smell the qualities of the original herb in the extract, and you are greeted with this aroma when you open a bottle. It is sweet and powerful. There is simply no other extraction method so effective that you can actually smell the purity, fragrance and essence of the herb.
This is a testimony to the great care that goes into the selection of the herbs and the supercritical extraction process itself. To give you an idea of the potency and concentration of the extract, we can often use as much as 200 to 250 pounds of fresh herbs to produce just one pound of supercritical extract. All of the herbs are grown on organic farms and selected with the greatest of care. The supercritical process produces an exceptionally broad representation of the herbs’ active constituents, which oftentimes traditional methods of extraction cannot even begin to extract. Furthermore, the supercritical process does not use any chemical solvents at all. Instead, it utilizes safe and environmentally friendly carbon dioxide, the same carbon dioxide that is found in your sparkling water.
Finally, the supercritical extract, post-supercritical extract (PSE) (a water-soluble extract), and the raw whole herb are combined to create our herbal formula. The finished product is superior in terms of both freshness and breadth of active constituents. It delivers the full spectrum of the herbs with a potency that cannot be surpassed. In addition, all of the herbs are independently tested for heavy metals and other contaminates. The result is an exquisite formula that delivers simplicity, purity and incredible potency all at once.
Contraindications, Toxicity, Cautions, and Safety: As with all dietary or herbal supplements, you should inform your health care professional that you are using this product. Women who are pregnant or nursing are advised to consult with a physician prior to use. When a preparation of the plant was evaluated for safety and tolerability it showed no adverse effects, but there were some reports of mild gastrointestinal symptoms. However, this herb has been used safely by healthy people of all ages in India, and Brahmi tea is actually given to infants starting in their first month of life to encourage optimal brain development. To date, no other side effects have been reported with Bacopa.
