Neural Nectar

Description

Neural Nectar is designed to ensure the elixir of life continues to flow into your grey matter, long into old age.

Neural Nectar is a combination of ancient, highly adaptive nootropic herbs specifically blended to enhance the longevity and performance of the brain in these modern times, designed to cultivate mental energy, acuity, and memory.

The use of nootropics is especially important these days due to the high levels of pressure being put on our minds due to endless stimuli and environmental stressors. This uniquely adaptive nootropic blend has purposely been crafted to work to support and nourish the brain and all five organs - The Lungs, Kidney, Liver, Heart, and Spleen.

According to the traditions, harmonising the flow of Qi in the organs is vital for overall cognitive function and mental health. Ancient Taoists and Yogis would use these herbs to support the brain and its functions, as well as to enhance emotional and mental well-being. The Taoists placed a lot of value on agile thinking and a quick wit; think of the wise old Masters of the lineage.

Nootropics or ‘smart drugs’ as they are so commonly referred to, are substances that enhance the cognitive powers of the brain. While these substances can be synthetically manufactured, they also exist naturally in many plants, particularly herbs, several of which are present in our Neural Nectar blend.

Ingredients

Mucuna pruriens (Mucuna)

Ginkgo biloba (Gingko) 

Hericium erinaceus (Lion’s Mane)

Paeonia lactiflora (White Peony)

Astragalus membranaceus (Astragalus)

Sourcing

All herbs in this formula are sourced Dì Dào from herb-producing regions of China.
Sourcing herbs from their spiritual homeland is born from the Taoist philosophy Dì Dào. 

Dì Dào poetically translates as ‘the way of the Earth’ and shows us where to harvest herbs if we wish to experience the herb’s true Spirit. From its ‘original place’ or ‘spiritual homeland’, a method that results in a product that is both full spectrum and medicinally robust.

Contraindications

  • Not suitable if pregnant or breastfeeding. 
  • Not suitable if taking psychiatric medication. 
  • Not suitable for those with legume or culinary mushroom allergies.
  • Ginkgo may have a blood thinning effect (as it increases blood circulation) so those on blood thinning medication are advised to be very cautious with incorporating ginkgo into their lifestyle and should seek the guidance of a health practitioner.

Serving Suggestion

Time of day

Whatever feels best for you! You can enjoy the Neural Nectar any time throughout your day.

Frequency

Take Daily.

Dosage

Generally, we recommend taking the herbs daily in small doses, to begin with. This allows you to develop an understanding and acknowledgment of how the herbs are unfolding their medicinal magic for you. Follow the dosage instructions on the package, or start with 1/8 - 1/2 teaspoon per day, adjusting the dose if you feel it necessary within your unique body system.

Doses can be taken as high as two teaspoons per day, however, most people find their sweet spot with 1/2 to one teaspoon per product, per day. We call this sweet spot your "lifestyle dose". We don't recommend taking more than two tablespoons of herbs a day. These extracts are potent, and you want to take care not to overload the body with too much of a good thing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I take Neural Nectar whilst pregnant?

Tonic herbs are generally warming, building, and nourishing. In the context of health optimisation and the Taoist tradition, tonic herbs are not directly used to treat individual symptoms, but instead to create harmony and strength within the system as a whole.

In this regard, we generally only recommend our Reishi and Eucommia Bark during pregnancy as there is quite a lot of empirical use of these herbs in pregnancy in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Taoist Tonic Herbalism. 

To learn more about the tonic herbs best to take during pregnancy, read this article.

As pregnancy is a very individual journey, we recommend checking in with your healthcare provider when starting on any new herbs or supplements as they will have a more comprehensive scope of your medical history.

Can I take Neural Nectar while breastfeeding?

We do not recommend Neural Nectar while breastfeeding as Mucuna, a herb present in the blend has been shown to inhibit prolactin. We suggest using Lion's Mane instead of Neural Nectar while breastfeeding.
