Spearmint is a popular species of mint native to the Balkan Peninsula and Turkey. Spearmint is a nootropic, improving brain function, memory and alertness overall. It is also widely used as a carminative, helping to alleviate digestive disorders, particularly nausea, gas and bloating. Spearmint also contains the terpenoid carvone which has been shown to inhibit tumors as well as possess antimicrobial activity.
Peripheral Vasodilator Antioxidant Antiinflammatory Nootropic
Ginkgo has been found in fossils going back 270 million years and has long been used as a food and traditional medicine. Ginkgo is understood to increase blood flow to the brain and is used to improve mental performance, memory and cognition and as a treatment in conditions such as dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and fatigue. Ginkgo also is also used for migraines due to its ability to stabilize platelets and serotonin levels in the brain.
- Protective to kidneys and liver
Nettles are mineral-rich and for that reason have been widely used to make nutritive teas and infusions. Nettles have been shown to reduce allergy symptoms through interfering with the histamine response and the degranulation of mast cells. Stinging nettle is also hypotensive and hypoglycemic, lowering blood pressure and blood sugar of people with advanced type 2 diabetes.
Antimicrobial Anti-inflammatory Neuroprotective Vasorelaxant Anxyolitic Erythropoiesis-Boosting
Lemongrass is widely used as a culinary herb in Southeast Asia and has antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties. Through inhibition of IL-1beta, proteasome and NFkappaB, along with inhibiting the release of inflammation markers in neutrophils and macrophages, lemongrass squashes inflammation. Lemongrass also combats anxiety through the GABAergic system and relaxes the circulatory system through antioxidants that lead to vasodilation. Finally, lemongrass is anti-cancer through a compound called isointermedeol upregulating TNF receptor 1 leading to abnormal cell death through the Fas pathway.
