Bacopa AAH SM

Bacopa monnieri is a creeping perennial in the plantain family (Plantaginaceae) and is native to India, Indochina, and the Mascarene Islands. Bacopa is used traditionally to prevent aging and disease, promote healthy longevity, and strengthen life, brain, and mind.

The American Botanical Council (ABC) is passionate about helping people live healthier lives through the responsible use of herbs and medicinal plants. As an independent, nonprofit education organization, ABC is dedicated to providing accurate and reliable information for consumers, healthcare practitioners, researchers, educators, industry and the media.
