Organic bacopa extract introduction

Bacopa monniera extract is derived from the powder extracted from the whole plant of Bacopa monniera in the family Scrophulariaceae Bacopa monniera. The main effects of Bacopa monniera extract are: heat-clearing and detoxifying, cooling blood, stopping bleeding and stopping dysentery, and at the same time, it has the effects of strengthening the brain and anti-anxiety.

Bacopa monnieri extract powder chemical composition

The main chemical components of Bacopa monnieri are triterpenoid saponins, which are bacoside A and bacoside B respectively, bacoside A is a left-handed body, and bacoside B is a right-handed They have biological activities such as regulating the cholinergic system, improving cognitive and memory functions, and sedative, anti-anxiety and anti-convulsant.

Bacopa monnieri plant extract pharmacological action

The main chemical composition of Bacopa monnieri is triterpenoid saponins, which have effects on the nervous system, digestive system and blood circulation system, and have anti-amnestic, sedative, memory-enhancing, anti-epileptic and anti-anxiety effects. Traditionally used to improve memory, sedative, antiepileptic, anti-inflammatory, antipyretic and analgesic,

1. Bacopa monnieri extract can inhibit the cerebral cortex, especially the acetylcholinesterase AChE in the parietal cortex and hippocampus, and increase the availability of acetylcholine. This effect enhances concentration, memory, and cognition, resulting in enhanced working memory.

Acetylcholinesterase (AChE): Acetylcholinesterase can hydrolyze the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. AChE exists in muscle-nerve junctions and brain choline-like synapses. Active AChE can hinder the transmission of nerve synapses. High levels of active AChE are the main cause of Alzheimer's disease progression.

2. It can resist oxidation and control the secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines (especially IL-6 and TNF-α) in the brain. The brain is metabolically active and is particularly susceptible to oxidative stress. Bacopa monniera can help reduce free radicals and inflammation in the brain, possibly helping to optimize mental clarity.

3. Bacopa monnieri extract can repair damaged nerve cells and promote nerve impulse transmission. It achieves the effect of repairing damaged nerve cells by enhancing hippocampal protein kinase activity, neuron synthesis and restoring synaptic activity.

4. Bacopa monnieri extract can increase brain serotonin, a neurotransmitter that promotes relaxation.
