Organic ingredients: mucuna, ashwagandha, brahmi, pearl, passion flower 


INGREDIENT BACKGROUND 

ORGANIC MUCUNA 

All parts of the Mucuna plant possess medicinal properties (Sathiyanarayanan and Arulmozhi, 2007). In vitro and invivo studies on M. pruriens extracts have revealed the presence of substances that exhibit a wide variety ofpharmacological effects, including anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective and anti-oxidant properties,probably due to the presence of L-dopa, a precursor of the neurotransmitter dopamine (Misra and Wagner, 2007).It is known that the main phenolic compound of Mucuna seeds is L-dopa (approximately 5%) (Vadivel andPugalenthi, 2008).* 


ORGANIC ASHWAGANDHA 

Ashwagandha root is believed to help improve brain function and alertness, relieve stress and anxiety, and reducepain and swelling. Ashwagandha is an adaptogen and is considered to enhance the body’s adaptive response tostress and balances normal body functions. Some studies have found constituents of the herb, including alkaloids,steroidal lactones, and saponins, to reduce inflammation and calm the nervous system. In one clinical trial ofpeople with moderate to severe anxiety, researchers compared the effects of a mixture of 300 mg standardized to1.5% with anolides, prepared from root, to psychotherapy. After the eight-week trial, the group that received theashwagandha mixture had decreased anxiety and fatigue and increased concentration, compared to those whohad psychotherapy.* 


ORGANIC BRAHMI 

Brahmi or Bacopa is traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine for neurological and cognitive improvement. Indiantexts dating back to the 6th century describe bacopa as sharpening intellect and reducing mental deficits. Bacopahas also been used to treat epilepsy and asthma as well as ulcers, indigestion, inflammation, and anemia. Afterreviewing the scientific evidence, the Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database (NMCD) concluded that bacopais “possibly effective” for aiding in learning and memory improvement.* 


ORGANIC PEARL POWDER 

Pearl powder contains a number of amino acids, over 30 trace minerals, and a high concentration of calcium. InChinese medicine, it is used as an anti-inflammatory and detoxification agent, and as a relaxant. Perhaps one of themost well-known and sought-after health benefits of pearl powder is for its calming and relaxing properties. It hasbeen used to relieve stress, soothe the nervous system, improve mood, and promote deeper sleep formillennia—and scientists may have discovered why. Aside from the generally calming effects that calcium has inthe body, it has been shown to  elevate GABA levels in the brain and body . GABA is a calming neurotransmitter thatis often deficient in people with anxiety and chronic stress. Researchers also found that pearl powder benefits andstimulates various receptors in the body related to serotonin production in both animals and humans.* 


ORGANIC PASSION FLOWER 

P. incarnata has many common names, including purple passionflower and maypop. Early studies suggest it mighthelp relieve insomnia and anxiety. It appears to boost the level of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in your brain.This compound lowers brain activity, which may help you relax and sleep better.*

Lifehouse Tonics offers genuine mushroom products, free from heavy metals and agricultural chemicals. All

Mushrooms are sourced from Certified Organic and Kosher facilities. Our mushroom products are certified to be

the highest quality available in the world today. NO mycelium, NO grain, NO starch. We use genuine mushrooms,

grown naturally, the way nature intended.


ORGANIC MUSHROOMS

We only source extracts that are made from certified organic mushrooms, grown naturally on substrate materials

native to each particular mushroom. No sterile laboratories, sterile air, sterile growing environment or artificial

lights. NO unnatural substrates made of cereal grains or rice. Our mushrooms are grown in greenhouses with

natural lighting and natural fresh air flow. We want our mushrooms to be grown the same way you want your food

produced; on a farm tended by real people not in a laboratory managed by technicians.

Organic certification requires adherence to an ethic that recognizes the importance of toxin-free production of

food products. We support this ethic and promote organically grown mushrooms as the surest way to realize the

full potential of these products. Certified organic mushrooms have multiple benefits: as herbal medicine that is

free of harmful chemicals and as sustainable agricultural crops that are grown without damaging the environment.

Our goal is to provide the highest quality mushroom extracts and do so in a manner that promotes the well-being

of the planet and all of its inhabitants. We strive to accomplish this by sourcing mushrooms grown the way nature

intended, the way you expect, and in harmony with the values that we share.


ORGANICALLY GROWN MUSHROOMS AS NATURE INTENDED

Every crop of mushrooms starts with selected strains, cultivars that have been developed over the course of

centuries. Hundreds of mushroom research institutes are engaged in continual research and development on high

yielding strains of the highest medicinal quality. Specially selected natural materials such as protein enriched

sawdust and hardwood logs are used as the food base for the mushrooms. These natural substrates contain

precursors that guarantee the production of important medicinal compounds. Mushroom crops are produced in

greenhouses and shade-houses. A constant flow of fresh air and fresh water from deep wells is provided to the

mushrooms. Natural sunlight provides the stimulus for proper mushroom formation. The mushrooms are

harvested by hand and sun-dried or air dried in a dehydrator. After harvest and before processing, every crop of

mushrooms is tested for possible chemical drift or other contamination.
