Brahmi is a low growing, succulent native to wetland habitats in India and Sri Lanka. Bitter and energetically cooling, brahmi is enjoyed whole or powdered. Translating to “energy of universal consciousness”, Bacopa monnieri has been utilized for its wellness supporting qualities in Ayurveda for centuries. Brahmi powder can be blended into herbal formulations, macerated as an extract, or encapsulated.
Brahmi is a creeping perennial, native to many parts of world and most frequently found in tropical regions of the Asian continent. It grows in marshy, wet environments and has since migrated to parts of North and Central America, particularly the Florida wetlands. The plant grows small white flowers and has thick leaves that resemble those of a succulent. Brahmi is frequently incorporated into aquariums due to its ability to grow and live in water. A member of the Scrophulariaceae family, brahmi goes by several common names including bacopa, herb-of-grace, Indian pennywort, water hyssop, and mandukaparni. Mountain Rose offers the dried aerial portions milled into powder.
