My last “Focus On” post was on the Mira hair oil ingredient, Eclipta Alba. This time I’m going to tell you a bit about another herbal ingredient: Bacopa Monnieri.
Bacopa Monnieri is a bitter tasting herb that thrives in watery fields, such as marshes and wetlands. It can be found in such countries as China, Nepal, India, and Sri Lanka, as well as in Florida and Hawaii.
Bacopa Monnieri is also known by the name “Brahmi” and is an herb that has traditionally been used in Ayurvedic medicine in India for thousands of years. In India, where it grows naturally, it was considered “brain food” and was used primarily to improve memory and boost mental alertness. However, over the years it was discovered to be useful for a range of other conditions such as hair loss, certain skin conditions, and illnesses such as asthma and rheumatism.
It is known to be a very effective scalp treatment, and we all know that healthy hair begins with healthy scalp! It is available in powder or oil formulations that can be used on the scalp to treat conditions such dry, itchy scalp, flaky skin, and dandruff. It moisturizes the scalp and revitalizes it from within so that the hair grows from healthier roots.
When used on the scalp it has been shown to be beneficial for hair thinning and hair loss by promoting the overall health of your hair. As it works on the scalp, Bacopa Monnieri strengthens the roots of the hair. Stronger hair roots help to significantly reduce the occurrence of hair loss.
The oil form of Bacopa Monnieri, which is what is in Mira hair oil, is preferred over the powder because it can then be massaged into the scalp and roots of the hair. The oil nourishes the hair roots and stimulates the hair follicles. Massaging the scalp will improve blood circulation and also promote the growth of your hair. This process will leave your hair looking thicker, longer, and shinier.
In addition to encouraging hair growth, when used on the hair and scalp, Bacopa Monnieri can also help with the treatment of split ends. Left unchecked, split ends can travel up the hair and lead to serious damage. However, continued use of a Bacopa Monnieri treatment will repair split ends and help to protect your hair from further damage as it coats the hair follicle.
As you can see, Bacopa Monnieri is a key component to restoring your hair. The addition of it to Mira hair oil is part of what helps Mira hair oil be such a hair restoration powerhouse!
