Apollo’s Hegemony Bacopa Monnieri is a dietary supplement which contains 350 mg of the Bacopa monnieri extract, standardised for the 50% content of bacosides in a single capsule.

Bacopa monnieri (Brahmi) – is a medicinal herb which has been used for thousands of years in the Ayurvedic medicine. It is a creeping plant of naked sprouts, which occurs virtually all over the world. It was mainly used for the improvement in brain condition and mood regulation. Nowadays, it is a subject of many scientific studies, which have confirmed the majority of its properties, in which people used to believe once. It is a very popular natural nootropic agent used for the improvement in general condition of the nervous system.

Adaptogenic properties of Brahmi
The prolonged high level of stress is an extremely harmful factor which deteriorates not only mental but also physical health. Nowadays, it is quite hard to protect from it, because it is “present” everywhere, because of the pace of life and many responsibilities imposed by the society.

Adaptogens, as their name suggests, support the adaptation of the body system to hard conditions whose symptom is stress. These are the substances that allow to partially mitigate stress response, which facilitates the fight against stress and the protection from potential health consequences. What is interesting, the effects can be observed in case of both prolonged and temporary stress.

Faster learning and more efficient memorising
Memories are created by forming proper synaptic connections between neurons in the brain, and this phenomenon is called neuroplasticity. According to the studies, the regular use of Bacopa monnieri for 4–6 weeks can improve memorising not only in people with cognitive disorders but also in healthy individuals. This is because of the more efficient proliferation of dendrites which transfer the signals to the neighbouring nerve cells.

A neurotransmitter known for its supporting influence on learning and memorising is acetylcholine. Bacopa has an ability of blocking the enzyme by which it is metabolised, acetylcholinesterase. It increases acetylcholine concentration and ensures its more efficient action. Another advantage is an improvement in blood circulation in the brain, and thus the brain cells are better nourished and their functions are more efficient.

Improvement in brain condition and its maintenance
Senile dementia is a terrifying vision and all of us want to protect themselves from it. One of the solutions is the supplementation with Bacopa monnieri as it protects neurons from damage and delays brain degradation progressing with age, and all of these due to its neuroprotective properties. One of the defensive mechanisms is the increase in antioxidant enzymes production, such as superoxide dismutase or glutathione peroxidase, which neutralise the reactive oxygen species and block their destructive action. The protective influence is also to be observed in case of the degeneration caused by excessive amounts of iron, aluminium or mercury. Moreover, Bacopa can reduce inflammations by reducing the amount of the produced IL-1β and TNF-α cytokines, which contributes to the delay in brain ageing. The regular use of Bacopa extract for at least 4 weeks can raise BDNF level, which is a growth factor of neurons and it improves regeneration of nervous tissue.

Better mood and anxiety reduction
Bacopa monnieri is known for its anti-anxiety effects. However, its mechanism of action can be distinguished from other herbs or substances that have similar use. The majority of anti-anxiety agents affect the increase in the GABA system actions thanks to the agonism of the specific receptors or by the positive, allosteric modulation of its action, which is why after discontinuation after longer use the problem may get worse. Bacopa monnieri, thanks to the bacoside-A, does not imitate the GABA action but temporary blocks its receptors which has an upregulation effect, that is the density of receptors increases. This means that anxiety is reduced in a safe way and the effects can last even for a certain time after discontinuing the supplementation. Numerous studies in rats have demonstrated that Bacopa is very effective not only in anxiety but also in the epilepsy treatment, thanks to the efficient inhibition of brain agitation and reduction in the frequency and strength of epileptic attacks.

However, the GABAergic system is not the only one affected by the active substances of Brahmi. Better mood and feeling of happiness are mostly affected by dopamine and serotonin, while the systems of the both neurotransmitters are modulated by Bacopa monnieri. The level and action of serotonin increase thanks to the increase in the expression of mRNA serotonin transporter (SERT) and the improved action of tryptophan hydroxylase, which makes that the substrates for the serotonin production are converted more efficiently. In turn, the dopaminergic system is modulated, so the dopaminergic transmission can be improved when we need it most, for example during stressful situations, and reduced when it is not required, for example by addictions to any stimulants. Thanks to these actions we can observe mood improvement, which has been also proven in scientific research in people suffering from depressive symptoms.

Apollo’s Hegemony Bacopa Monnieri is recommended especially for people struggling with chronic stress, anxiety and low mood. It will be perfect also as a support for learning and memorising, so it is a great complement for the supplementation of students and white-collar workers. It is also a good way for a preventive protection of the nervous system from the development of potential diseases.
