Rhodiola rosea is a stimulating adaptogen, enhancing the effects of many herbs, providing a dualistic motivational & mood elevating effect. Rhodiola increases Serotonin, Dopamine, Adrenaline, Acetylcholine, & Endorphin levels.

Mucuna pruriens is one of the best adaptogens available for the fortification of the entire body. It increases motivation, mental capacity, & endurance.

Catuaba is the premier mood enhancing & aphrodisiac herb of the Amazon, enhancing ones sexual drive & desire, greatly improving blood flow through a potent vasodilatory action, and both increases energy levels while producing a calming effect. Catuaba functions as a dopamine reuptake inhibitor & stimulates the flow of serotonin & acetylcholine in the brain, producing effects such as improvement in memory, motivation, mood, concentration, & sociability.

Muira puama is a powerful nootropic herb and stimulant with aphrodisiac and adaptogenic qualities. Muira puama enhances energy and motivation via beta-adrenergic and d1 dopamine receptors while improving memory & focus through acetylcholine esterase inhibition. Muira puama is a potent neuroprotective & neuroregenerative agent, a potent circulatory stimulant, contains a wide variety of essential oils with potent anti-oxidant qualities, & increases overall sensitivity to all stimuli, including one's dreams.

Ginkgo biloba is one of the best tools available for the delivery of nutrients to the entire body, improving blood, oxygen, & glucose circulation without increasing blood pressure. Ginkgo also has potent antioxidant action, protecting the nervous & circulatory systems, regulates multiple neurotransmitter systems, preventing age associated declines in their functioning, and enhances memory, concentration, & mood. Ginkgo is a GABA/Glycine site antagonist, a significant norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor, and facilitates the stimulation of acetylcholine.

Holy Basil is a calming adaptogen, assisting the body by reducing cortisol & inflammation, which has a net effect of reducing stress & balancing mood. Holy basil is one of the most highly revered herbs in Ayurveda, and is a vital ally for stress sensitive individuals.

Darjeeling tea is a rich and aromatic Indian tea made from the fermented leaves of Camellia sinensis. Darjeeling is typically served as black tea, but the unique processing of this type of tea preserves the astringent taste from green tea and the rich savory flavors of black tea, producing a cup that has the best of both worlds.

Broad-leaf Indian white tea is a unique type of tea with the highest amount of polyphenols, specifically EGCG, of any & all other known tea types. This tea is not fermented or roasted, and ranges in color from light green to dark purple, carrying with it a sweet, delicate taste. Because this type of tea comes from a broad-leaf, almost tree-like cultivar, it absorbs much more sunlight than typical teas. This is believed to have a substantial effect on the anti-oxidant value of the tea.

Turmeric is a relative of the Ginger family, is native to India and is quite the amazing health tonic, invigorating the blood, improving the immune system, relaxing inflamed joints & muscles, providing immense anti-oxidant potential, and even improving brain function while enhancing energy and a positive sense of well-being.

Cinnamon functions as a central nervous system stimulant & mental enhancing nootropic herb. It contains a potent anti-oxidant & anti-inflammatory profile & is used to effectively lower blood pressure & blood sugar levels, maintaining a steady flow of energy that lasts throughout the day.

Cardamom is most commonly used as an exotic spice, an ingredient in masala chai teas, or as a digestive aid, chewed with fennel after a meal to enhance digestion or to ward off an upset stomach. It has an impressive array of aromatics present in its essential oil and can be used in a multitude of spice & herb blends, either as a medicinal for its aromatic flavor. Cardamom is extremely effective at stopping stomach pains, even those that are drug induced or experienced during pregnancy. Cardamom is also a well known remedy for low sexual response & impotence.

Fennel seeds are one of the main ingredients in masala chai teas, having a combined sweet & aromatic profile while improving digestion & settling the stomach. The strongest note of fennel is that of anise, however there are strong secondary notes of orange peel zest & camphor which produce an almost wintergreen type of undertone that balances & sweetens the licorice like notes from the anethole.

Nutmeg is a very special herb, in fresh whole or cut form much different than what one would find as a powdered spice on the shelves of their local supermarket. The flavor is that of a savory aromatic, rich & deep, thick & intoxicating. It has actions as an anti-cholinergic (m1/m4/5), modulating dopamine & endorphin release, acting as a potent aphrodisiac & mood enhancer. Nutmeg when consumed daily functions as an effective anti-diuretic & astringent, preserving bodily fluids making it invaluable for night sweats, urinary incontinence, & premature ejaculation. Nutmeg also has a relaxing effect, reducing blood pressure & improving the quality of sleep. In addition to its wide essential oil content, nutmeg contains cannabinoid type compounds stored in its fat.

Mace is the connoisseur's fraction of the Myristica fragans tree, oily and pungent without the mess that the nutmeg seed can bring with it. It is a beautiful orange-red color with a form similar to a dried rose petal. Mace, like Nutmeg is a powerful admixture for stimulant herbs, a potent aphrodisiac, & a strong astringent which conserves bodily fluids such as saliva & semen.

Clove is a dried aromatic flower with a spicy, numbing taste. They have local anesthetic properties & when brewed into tea or chewed can decrease inflammation of the stomach, mouth & lungs, making them an excellent herb for those suffering from tooth pains, or bronchial/digestive inflammation.

Anise is a pungent thick spice with a flavor that can be described as like licorice and root beer. Anise is sweet & is claimed to relieve coughs, improve digestion, and relax the body & mind.

Nigella sativa has been cited in numerous ancient texts as "the seed with 1000 medicinal uses", Nigella sativa aka the Black seed, has been used as a cure-all panacea, pain-reliever, anti-allergenic, & food additive. Nigella sativa contains active opioid agonists as well as compounds that inhibit the metabolism of endorphins & enkephalins; the bodies natural pain-killers.

Black pepper can dramatically increase absorption of many nutrients and alkaloids by an incredible amount. Black pepper also enhances the thermogenesis of fats and accelerates energy metabolism in the body while increasing the serotonin and beta-endorphin production in the brain.

White pepper consists of the seed of the pepper plant alone, with the darker-coloured skin of the pepper fruit removed. This is usually accomplished by a process known as retting, where fully ripe red pepper berries are soaked in water for about a week, during which the flesh of the pepper softens and decomposes. Rubbing then removes what remains of the fruit, and the naked seed is dried.

Stevia is a sweet tasting sugar free herb that transforms the flavor of this herbal tonic tea into a drink that even old fashioned colas cannot compare with. Stevia contains an excellent anti-oxidant profile and has a history of safe traditional usage, and modern studies show that stevia can even help lower blood sugar levels and reduce weight!
