The Intelligence Tree
This month, we will take a look at an unusual but vital plant that we use in many of our Rebel Herbs products. Celastrus paniculatus, otherwise known as the intellect plant or Jyotishmati, is a climbing vine with bright yellow, orange or red arils (seed coverings). It has been used in Ayurveda to help maintain healthy memory and cognitive function. Studies have shown that it produces calming effects, as well as exhibiting neuroprotective and cognitive enhancing effects when taken in reasonable and regular doses.*
Needing a sense of feeling mentally balanced? Take a look at our NuroSteady and Nuroade products, which contain doses of celastrus paniculatus in each dose.
