Bacopa monnieri (common name, bacopa) is a medicinal plant used in Ayurveda, the traditional system of medicine of India, as a nootropic. It is considered to be a “medhya rasayana”, an herb that sharpens the mind and the intellect. Bacopa is an important ingredient in many Ayurvedic herbal formulations designed to treat conditions such as memory loss, anxiety, poor cognition and loss of concentration. It has also been used in Ayurveda to treat inflammatory conditions such as arthritis.

The thyroid is an important gland which produces hormones that play a role in a wide array of metabolic processes. It is not uncommon for people to experience different thyroid problems, and besides following doctor-recommended medications, making certain lifestyle changes is a good way to manage that condition.. There are many herbal medicines that may treat thyroid disorders including Bacopa. Some thyroid supplements contain bacopa as well.

The correct course of many biochemical processes in the human body depends on the functioning of the thyroid gland. This endocrine gland stores iodine, necessary for the proper functioning of the body, and produces iodine-containing hormones

The thyroid gland regulates various functions of the body, so it should not be left unattended. If there are any deviations in the work of this organ, the treatment of the thyroid gland with folk remedies is recommended. Of course, this does not mean at all that such herbal treatment will lead to a 100% recovery, but the use of hormonal drugs will decrease significantly.

Stress, malnutrition, insufficient physical activity, ecology ,a hereditary factor – not so many people in our time can boast of an absolutely healthy thyroid gland that works without failures.

This butterfly-shaped organ may be called the general director of the human body. As soon as it starts functioning poorly, other organs start having problems as well. That is why an experienced doctor, before prescribing treatment for a patient, will definitely ask if he has any thyroid diseases. Let's talk about home remedies - herbs for the thyroid gland, which can support drug treatment, and sometimes replace it.

Potentilla alba L. (Rosaceae) is a valuable medicinal plant and has a long tradition of therapeutic use in Europe, especially in the eastern part of the continent. Mainly, the rhizome of this plant have been used alone or as a part of a comprehensive therapy to treat thyroid gland disorders.

Potentilla alba, also known as white cinquefoil, is one of approximately 500 species of the genus Potentilla belonging to the Rosaceae family. 

White cinquefoil is traditionally used in Eastern Europe to treat diseases of the liver, cardiovascular system, and gastrointestinal tract and as a wound healing agent due to its antibacterial activity. Extracts from the aerial parts stimulate the central nervous system, whereas the underground parts of this plant increase diuresis, enhance bile secretion, and improve intestinal function. In folk medicine, an infusion of P. alba roots is prepared for painful menstruation as an antispastic and analgesic agent. A decoction of the roots with rhizomes is used for gout, rheumatism, jaundice, and dysentery. In folk medicine of Belarus, it is recommended to drink a decoction of the aerial parts of white cinquefoil when suffering from prolapse of the uterus.

The composition of Potentilla Alba is rich in vitamins and various microelements (iron, magnesium, zinc and others). But for the thyroid gland, iodine and iodinated acid are important, which are able to normalize and stabilize the functionality of the organ. Herbal medicine will help only at the initial stage of the development of diseases.

The plant also contains tannins, saponins, flavonoids, amino acids. They have a pronounced anti-inflammatory property and at the same time they are able to activate regenerative (restorative) processes throughout the body and to ensure the renewal of gland tissues at the cellular level. The result of this action is a decrease in the size of the organ and the gradual "death" of pathologically altered cells.
