Bacopa, also called "Brahmi" in India, is a perennial plant native to wetlands of Eastern and southern India, Asia, and Africa. Bacopa is also a non-aromatic herb used as a supplement and is traditionally used as medicine in Ayurveda. The herb contains bioactive constituents called bacosides shown to possess antioxidant effects particularly in the brain. This is the reason why many believe it to be useful in stress disorders and as memory enhancer.
