When people think of nootropics, they often think of new and novel drugs that were created in the laboratory within the past 100 years. But some of the best, safest, and most effective nootropics are actually thousands of years old. As you may have guessed, I’m talking about Bacopa.
Bacopa is a plant-derived natural medicine that has been around for thousands of years. It has been used widely in Ayurvedic medicine to improve mental functioning, memory, and comprehension. Bacopa has also been used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat a number of physical conditions as well. Only recently has it started to gain popularity as a modern nootropic.
