Feeling a lack of motivation and finding it difficult to find pleasure in life has a clinical name—anhedonia—and researchers from the University of Florence have found a promising treatment for it in Bacopa monnieri, also known as Brahmi, an Ayurvedic herb used for centuries to boost memory and cognitive performance. Dividing 42 patients with anhedonia into two groups, the researchers gave half of them the antidepressant medication citalopram (Calexa) plus 300 milligrams of Bacopa; the control group was given only the medication. After four weeks, the Bacopa group had significant improvements in symptoms and were able to experience pleasure more easily than the control group.
