Bacopa monnieri clinical studies | Brahmi and human memory

In a study in Australia 76 adults between 40-65 years were enrolled in a double-blind randomized, placebo control where memory functions and anxiety levels were measured. One testing session was before the trial, one after 3 months and one after 6 months. It was found that Bacopa monnieri also known as Brahmi had a significant effect on retained memory. Bacopa reduced the rate of forgetting new information. Verbal and visual short term memory and anxiety levels were also unaffected.

In another double-blind placebo-controlled study 107 healthy participants were included.

It was found that he Bacopa monniera product significantly improved performance on the 'Working Memory' factor, more specifically spatial working memory accuracy. The number of false-positives recorded in the Rapid visual information processing task was also reduced for the Bacopa monniera group following the treatment period.
