A 1998 study involving rats who were given a 25% bacoside A dose of Bacopa extract showed that anxiolytic activity was enhanced as much as if the drug Lorazepam were administered. The treatment with Bacopa extract exhibited none of the side effects of Lorazepam, such as amnesia

yeah but the reference is from 1980.
some reviews from iherb,
1) This works way better than caffeinne when my mind is feelish sluggish and I need to do technical writing. It seems to have no down side. I take half of one and it makes me sharper.
2) As others of said it takes about a month of constantly taking this until you start to notice the benefits! I fully agree with the other review that said you start to remember strange forgotten things from the past as I've been starting to experiance that as well. My short term memory has gotten better too! Highly recommend.
So has anyone experience with this stuff?
