It's a good article. 07:27, 17 March 2006 (UTC)

This is a great example of an article with interesting information that appears to be based on nothing but the author's personal enthusiasm. The statements made about its efficacy for memory and dream work, tantalizing to be sure, are in no way backed up by the study cited in a later paragraph. Clearly this needs to be at the very least re-written to show the speculative nature of what is being said. It doesn't even appear to be anecdotal. Rosecrans (talk) 02:54, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

removed 'figwort' and 'moneywort'[edit]

These are two different plants altogether, and neither of these is the here bacopa - as shown on the articles on the respective plants. Can't refer articles with serious information to this one if it's not coherent. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:32, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Translation of animal to human doses[edit]

The article refers to a dose of 250mg/kg in rodents. Although a linear multiplication of this dose for a 76kg human would equal roughly 19g, it would be erroneous to equate these two doses. I have undone the "correction" to my correction made by user Rhode Island Red (although understandably well-intentioned), and added a citation from which the mouse->human formula I used was pulled from ( The correct translation for 250mg/kg in mice comes out to be 1.54g for a 76kg human.

Alternative names[edit]

Herb-of-grace is mentioned by D. F. Austin 'Florida Ethnobotany' (2004) as an old American name, but no further source is cited. Myopic Bookworm (talk) 12:52, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

This website [1] says small amount, not of pharmacologic importance. It cites a 1972 analysis as evidence (ref #16).David notMD (talk) 10:27, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
