Mode of Action:
The memory enhancing and cognitive effects of Brahmi (Bacopa monniera) have been attributed to the active components saponins, in particular bacosides A and B. The mode of action is thought to be by the:
- Positive influence on many nerve endings found in the brain that are important for memory and cognition.
- Antioxidant effects by neutralisation of free radical producing metals and by increasing the levels of antioxidant enzymes hence preventing cell damage.
Ginkgo's (Ginkgo biloba) main neuroprotective and cognitive enhancing effects have been attributed to:
- Improvement in brain circulation and associated increases in oxygen and nutrient supply to the central nervous system.
- Free-radical scavenger activity which helps in reducing cell damage.
