Calm | Fine Plant & Mushroom Powder from Vana Tisanes
Calm Fine Plant & Mushroom Powder has an earthy, slightly sweet flavor with a hint of floral notes. Lion’s Mane and Reishi Mushrooms create an earthy base to this blend. Ashwagandha and Valerian Roots add depth, while Hops, Chamomile, and Lavender Flowers lift this tisane with their bright, floral flavors. Lemon Balm Leaf adds a touch of citrus to Calm Fine Plant & Mushroom Powder, which is complimented by the peppery taste of St. John’s Wort.
Ashwagandha Root: Ashwagandha contains chemicals that calm the mind, reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure, and balance the immune system.
Bacopa Leaf: Bacopa Leaf is full of antioxidants with powerful active compounds including bacosides, which helps stop fat molecules from reacting with free radicals, which prevents the process called lipid peroxidation. Lipid peroxidation is linked to several health conditions including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and other neurodegenerative disorders. Bacopa Leaf helps to enhance brain function, resulting in improved spatial learning and better ability to retain information. The herb is found to increase dendritic length and branching. Dendrites are the parts of the nerve cells in the brain that are most closely linked to learning and memory.
Chamomile Flower: Chamomile Flower is full of antioxidants, including apigenin which is a compound that binds to certain receptors in the brain to promote relaxation and sleepiness. It has anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, and analgesic properties which are helpful in reducing joint pain.
Hops Flower: Hops Flower contains many antioxidants, polyphenols, and beneficial essential oils such as linalool, which helps to reduce oxidative stress. The herb is beneficial in balancing the mood— easing stress, anxiety, and symptoms of depression. Additionally, Hops Flower has calming properties which helps to promote better restful sleep, especially when used in combination with Valerian Root.
Lavender Flower: Lavender Flower is deeply relaxing and reduces stress. The soothing benefits of Lavender Flower extend to its use as an anxiolytic, mood stabilizer, sedative, analgesic, and anti-convulsant with powerful neuroprotective properties.
Lemon Balm Leaf: Lemon Balm Leaf helps to reduce abdominal pain and discomfort while improving digestion. It also has stress and anxiety relieving properties, making you feel calm and at ease.
Lion’s Mane Mushroom: Lion’s Mane Mushroom is known for its ability to stimulate the growth of brain cells from hericenones and erinacines. These compounds are beneficial in reducing memory loss and preventing neuronal damage caused by amyloid-beta plaques. This Mushroom is also beneficial in relieving anxiety and depression due to its ability to regenerate brain cells and improve the function of the hippocampus.
Passionflower: Passionflower supports the nervous system by promoting calm and reducing anxiety. The herb boosts the level of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain which lowers brain activity, promoting relaxation and improving sleep. Passionflower is an effective analgesic, helping to alleviate pain.
Reishi Mushroom: Reishi is considered the “king of mushrooms” and is prized for its adaptogenic properties. It is high in vitamin B-12, antioxidants, and the amino acid ergothioneine— all of which lowers the risk of depression. The antioxidant properties of the mushroom may reduce the risk of disease, improve longevity and combat fatigue.
Skullcap: Skullcap is a mild relaxant and is beneficial for easing anxiety, nervous tension, and convulsions. It has powerful antioxidant effects which help protect against neurological disorders.
St. John’s Wort: St. Johns Wort contains the plant compounds hypericin and hyperforin which increase levels of serotonin in the brain. The herb is beneficial in alleviating anxiety, easing nerve pain, and reducing insomnia.
Valerian Root: Valerian Root contains compounds that stimulate the opioid receptors and serotonin production in the brain, increasing relaxation, antidepressant effects, reducing pain, and acting as a mild sedative.
