Mentality Plus Tonic

Developed from an ancient ayurvedic/Chinese formula. This tonic is nutritive and supportive for mental function, intellect, etc.

A long term remedy with benefits that will be appreciated more with consistent use.


This formulation consists of herbs which work on the nervous, endocrine and circulatory systems. The overall effect is one which is uplifting and subtly euphoric, while at the same time enhancing concentration, mental clarity and both short and long term memory. This result is achieved by a number of mutually synergistic actions. A number of these herbs are nerve tonics and mood enhancers. This aspect of the formulation can be very helpful in cases of mild depression. There is also a significant adaptogenic component that supports the endocrine system, particularly the adrenal glands. This promotes an increase in resistance to stress and an improvement in overall energy level. Finally, several of these herbs are also known to strengthen the blood vessels resulting in a general improvement in blood circulation, especially to the brain and adrenals. This formulation works as a tonic. It can be helpful in conditions characterized by anxiety, depression, poor memory and concentration, and general lethargy and malaise.


15-30 drops taken in 1-2 ounces of pure water on an empty stomach. The best times are 15-30 minutes before meals. This formulation should be taken 2-4 times per day for periods of 6-8 weeks followed by a 1-2 week break.

Poor memory and concentration, negative moods and fatigue can be related to a number of different factors. Poor circulation is often implicated. In this case it is important to get sufficient exercise and reduce consumption of foods that are high in fats and various chemicals. Smoking is a definite liability. Stress is also often an important factor. Avoidance of excessively stressful situations, learning how to deal with stress more efficiently, and getting sufficient rest and relaxation are necessary in these situations. It is also important to reduce consumption of sugar and stimulants such as caffeine. Another element that is not often considered has to do with high levels of toxicity in the blood and tissues. Here, exercise (with plenty of sweating) and reducing consumption and exposure to toxic chemicals are an issue again. The possibility of compromised digestive, eliminative and liver function should also be considered. Also related to digestive and liver function, as well as general immune function, is the presence of food allergies or sensitivities. These can also be related to poor moods and low energy level. Excessive consumption of alcohol adds to the level of internal toxicity, stresses out the liver, pancreas and adrenals and has a depressant effect on the nervous system. Supplementation with antioxidant (vitamins A, C and E, selenium and bioflavinoids) may also be helpful because they help improve circulation and protect the body tissues from the harmful effects of toxins. Symptoms of this nature can also be related to emotional and psychological issues. Some form of counselling may also be in order.
