About the Ingredients

ASHWAGANDHA (Withania somnifera

Physiologically, Ashwagandha is a reproductive and adrenal tonic, Thyroid-stimulant, Adaptogenic (supports the body’s ability to adapt to stress and balances physiological activity), Immunomodulator, Anti-anemic (contains iron). Ashwagandha is a profoundly restorative and calming adaptogen and is invaluable in all cases of debility such as adrenal fatigue, convalescence, hypothyroidism. Though it is considered to nourish the entire body, it has a particular affinity for the nervous and endocrine systems and can help rebalance hormones, especially when stress is a factor. It has a modulatory effect on the immune system, raising white blood cell counts and strengthening disease resistance as well as reducing immune hyperactivity in auto-immune conditions. In the realm of mental health, it has proven beneficial for Generalized Anxiety Disorder, insomnia, ADHD, and other mental health conditions.

Psychospiritually, Ashwagandha brings a sense of grounded calmness and embodiment. It is ideal for anyone experiencing excessive mental activity, anxiety, psychological dissociation, or difficulty “staying in one’s body”. It can be used to help strengthen boundaries and protect us from negative influences.

(Passiflora incarnata)

Physiologically, Passionflower is a Nervine (relaxes & nourishes the nervous system), Hypnotic (promotes sleep), Spasmolytic (relaxes smooth muscle and relieves cramping), Anxiolytic (calms the mind). Passionflower is primarily used as a sleep aid in cases of mild to moderate insomnia, particularly when due to mental restlessness and/or circadian rhythm disruption. It is also a valuable adjunct for anxiety and nervous tension and has pronounced action on both smooth and skeletal muscle, helping to relieve muscle tension and spasms.

Psycho-spiritually, passionflower helps us consolidate scattered thoughts and feelings and brings clarity, intention, and inner calmness to our bodies and minds. Corresponding to the third-eye Chakra, this plant can help us reconnect to our sense of inner knowing and realign us with our higher purpose.


About our Botanical Extracts

A "botanical extract" refers to the use of a solvent to extract the medicinal components of a plant, rendering them more bioavailable and concentrated. The strength of an extract is amount of starting material compared to the finished product, expressed as a ratio. We use 10:1 botanic extracts in our products, which means you get the equivalent benefits of 10 capsules of plant material in just one capsule!

Additionally, all of our products have undergone testing for purity and potency and are standardized to contain high levels of active constituents (the medicinal parts of the plant). You can feel comfortable using these products, knowing that they are among the safest, most potent, and most effective on the market. Unlikely many botanical nutraceuticals, our products contain no fillers, stabilizers, or additives and are hand-made in small batches.
