HISTORY OF USE
The bacopa plant is available in the market in various forms. It’s usually sold as an oil or powder, but is also available in capsule and liquid extracts, which are easier to assimilate and add to various foods. Bacopa has also been incorporated into the culinary world, and is now being used as an ingredient in meals.
People who use bacopa in their diet have noted that it has a bitter taste, which may not be that appetizing for children. The taste, though, is just a minor characteristic because what you’re actually aiming to get are the numerous health benefits it offers.
MYTHS & LEGENDS
In India, the bacopa herb falls under the category of the “medhyarasayana” — herbs that have the ability to improve memory and intellect. This herb is also called “brahmi,” together with the herb gotu kola. This was taken from the name of “Brahma,” the creator of the universe in the Indian belief system. While the gotu kola herb shares the ability of the bacopa plant in improving cognition, these two can be easily differentiated based on their appearance.
