Monnieri is not a good addition to salad because it is practically tasteless. Caroliniana, Lemon Bacopa, is a better choice, which should be renamed Lime Bacopa because it smells limes, more fruity than lemons. The tea it makes tastes like limes. Chew a little. It tastes like lime.Time to start adding some to your salad!!
Like any herbal medicine, you have to taste it with a grain of faith. There is no rigorous research to verify its medicinal benefits. identify the right dosage, and side effects.Is the medicine helpful or not?
The parameters they measured have wide person to person variability- MAO's been studied for 75 years and they still don't know how variances in uptake really affect people, excess might theoretically make you more likely to be depressed, on the other hand a deficiency has been correlated with suicidal intent (and vice versa), with the upshot that all the real scientists have long shelved the theory that MAOs have a specific and measurable psychoactive effect. Acetylcholinesterase lowers acetylcholine, damping down nerve cell communication everywhere, not just in the brain, but in the muscles (you really want your muscle cells to stop twitching when you stop moving) both of these things have nothing to do with memory , and the sort of response testing they did (see a thing, hit a button) is affected by tiredness, any form of distraction and is also subject to an anticipatory effect, where people hit the button before they see anything. A lot of pseudoscientific papers do this -pick some big words that on a quick google might look plausible and 'scientific' but when you drill down into it it's meaningless -specific to this one is that they picked on enzymes that have globally useful effects and jumped on a tiny lowering as a good outcome for their study whose whole purpose was to give legitimacy to ayurvedic treatments.There is one paper that involved human subjects, however that was looking into its effectiveness for slowing cognitive decline in the elderly
On the contrary, thank you for the incredibly informative reply.Sorry for the wordy reply
You have my sympathy.I've been suffering from chronic neuropathic pain for a LONG time
