Ginseng and bacopa may produce cognition enhancements similar to modafinil.

A review article published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology compared clinical trials of neurocognitive effects of modafinil, ginseng and bacopa.  The study concluded that the nutraceuticals (ginseng and bacopa) may produce cognition enhancing effects similar in magnitude to modafinil. Neurocognitive effects included thinking, learning, processing, or remembering information. Have you used a combination of ginseng and bacopa for cognitive improvement in your patients?What other plants do you recommend routinely?
