Bacopa Monnieri Extract

Short Description

Our Bacopa is native to India where it thrives in wet environments with plenty of water. The plant is aquatic and has adapted to living submerged in water where communities in these areas have used it for generations. The ideal growing conditions combined with years of experience result in a product high in bacosides which support overall health and is easy to incorporate into food and drink.

Process

Bacopa is grown throughout India where the plant is native to wet environments and the communities have been caring for it for generations. The plant is aquatic and has adapted to living in extremely wet areas where it grows creeping vines close to the surface. The flowers of the plant are small, white and along with vines are used to create the powder. As the plant grows, the vines, leaves and flowers are harvested periodically to promote growth, making it an ongoing process. When the plant is harvested, it is cleaned, cut into small pieces and sundried. After drying, it is ground and extracted 25:1 using pure water and ethanol. The solution is then chilled and filtered numerous time, resulting in a more concentrated product. After the bacopa is concentrated, it’s tested and checked for quality, dried, milled and sifted.

Use
