Adaptogenic herbs have a cumulative effect: take them daily, over time, & they can actually change your life. But they’re not a quick fix. Like so many good things, the life-changing magic of these herbs takes time, young grasshopper.
As a member, you start your adaptogen relationship off on the right foot—think “long-term relationship with marriage potential”. We make it easy with:
Several of these herbs have been respected as master tonics for millennia across many healing traditions, such as Ayurvedic, Chinese and rainforest tribal medicine.
Each brain herb within the formula has been extensively studied for its ability to help regain memory, support synapse response, increase neurotransmitter communication, help mental imbalance, increase and energize mood, etc. Below we have the tip of the iceberg on latest research on these ancient medicines.
Botanical Nootropic. Mental Boost. Cognition Booster. Mood Enhancement.
How to use: Use 1tsp in your choice of beverage, 2-3x per day. Increase dosage if needed to fuel up capacity. Excellent in matcha, tea, chai, coffee. Highly recommended to use in beverages with some sort of fat based ingredients in it, such as "bulletproof" style drinks (using coconut oil, MCT oil, ghee, etc.) This can also be paired with fish oil (or other DHA oils) for optimum effects.

Lion's Mane Mushroom (Hericium erinaceus): Adaptogenic and regenerative nootropic popular in traditional Chinese medicine. One study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry states lion’s mane mushroom is “antibiotic, anticarcinogenic, antidiabetic, anti-fatigue, antihypertensive, anti-hyperlipodemic, anti-senescence [anti-aging], cardioprotective, hepatoprotective, nephroprotective, and neuroprotective, and improves anxiety, cognitive function, and depression.”
Brahmi (Bacopa monnieri): Ayurvedic adaptogen and mental powerhouse. Also called “herb of grace” or water hyssop, is famously used as a medhya rasayana (nootropic drug) in ayurveda to enhance memory and revitalize brain function.
Brahmi helps enhance memory in several ways. Its antioxidants fight free radicals and prevent oxidative damage in the brain, whether caused by an iron overload or toxin buildup. It also increases the levels of natural antioxidants like superoxide dismutase, catalase, and glutathione peroxidase in the prefrontal cortex, striatum, and the hippocampus – areas of the brain that are responsible for cognitive functions like information processing, mental skills, and memory.
More interestingly, brahmi helps nerve endings grow and branch out, thereby forming more synapses between nerves in the hippocampus and amygdala, areas of the brain responsible for memory formation. This increases the volume and speed of communication between nerves. Brahmi has been found to increase protein kinase activity in the hippocampus in amnesiac rats. Protein kinases help in learning and memory, and in this case helped in recovery.
Preliminary small-scale research seems to indicate that brahmi can also improve symptoms of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in kids.
Tulsi (Ocimum sanctum) - Holy Basil: Known in Ayurveda as “The Incomparable One,” “Mother Medicine of Nature” and “The Queen of Herbs,” and is revered as an “elixir of life” that is without equal for both its medicinal and spiritual properties. Daily consumption of tulsi is said to prevent disease, promote general health, wellbeing and longevity and assist in dealing with the stresses of daily life. Tulsi is also credited with giving luster to the complexion, sweetness to the voice and fostering beauty, intelligence, stamina and a calm emotional disposition.
Gotu Kola (Centella asiatica): brain protection and meditation. Known as "the herb of enlightenment" - a master tonic revered in China and India for its spiritual granting abilities. Yogis have used it as a meditation aid thought to restore balance to the left and right hemispheres of the brain.
It has been used to treat disorders of the mind including mental fatigue, anxiety, depression, memory loss, and insomnia. Gotu kola activates the release of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a protein that acts like fertilizer for your brain encouraging new brain cell formation.
It takes a few weeks to be mesmerized by Gotu Kola's abilities, as its healing power is a longer term encouraging of dendrite branching, increasing brain plasticity and communication between brain cells. It also increases nerve growth factor (NGF) which stimulates the growth of new nerve cells and safeguards existing ones.
Gotu kola also is known to protect the brain from damage incurred by everyday life. So far, studies show it protects the brain from neurotoxins like lead, arsenic, aluminum and monosodium glutamate (MSG), a food additive that causes brain fog, migraines, and mood swings. Another way gotu kola protects the brain is by reducing the effects of free radicals. Lastly, it has incredible skin regenerative properties, including boosting collagen.
Gingko Biloba: memory and concentration. One of the oldest tree species on Earth, "Ginkgo’s been widely studied for its effective anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, platelet-forming and circulation-boosting effects. Benefits include improved cognitive function, positive mood, increased energy, improved memory and reduced symptoms related to multiple chronic diseases — for instance, it’s been used as an asthma natural remedy, ADHD natural remedy and dementia treatment.
According to a report in the International Journal of Phyotherapy and Phytopharmacology, ginkgo biloba is “currently the most investigated and adopted herbal remedy for cognitive disorders and Alzheimer’s disease.”
