Why Take Celastrus Paniculatus?
Celastrus paniculatus is also often called the “intellect tree” and for good reason! Celastrus is one of the most well known natural nootropics in ayurveda and provides a unique blend of cognition, memory and mood enhancement. If you’ve been looking for a really solid natural nootropic then this is the one for you!
What Is Celastrus Paniculatus?
Celastrus paniculatus, which is also often referred to as the “intellect tree”, is a woody plant that is native to India. With this in mind, it is no surprise that Celastrus has seen widespread use in Indian Ayurvedic practices. Celastrus paniculatus supplements are most often created from the seeds of this plant.
This amazing plant is composed of many different molecules, such as sequesterpene alkaloids, polyalcohols, flavones and polyphenols. That being said, there are still a lot of unknowns about what exactly is in Celastrus paniculatus, and how it produces the bulk of its nootropic effects. We have narrowed it down as best we can to the polyphenols in Celastrus, which is why our Celastrus paniculatus is standardized to 8% polyphenols.
Celastrus Paniculatus Benefits & Uses
Promotes cognitive function
Celastrus paniculatus for Mental Clarity
Celastrus paniculatus has been well known for centuries for its nootropic effects and has only continued to live up to that claim! First used in traditional Ayurvedic practices in India, Celastrus paniculatus has an extensive history of use, yet in the western world it is still quite shrouded in mystery, and it is hard to get a hold off. We wanted to change this, and spent many years looking for the best Celastrus paniculatus extracts around.
What we discovered is that the best Celastrus paniculatus extracts dialed in mental clarity to a very high degree. Not all Celastrus extracts produced this effect, and surprisingly we found the best mental clarity effects to reside in water extracts of Celastrus paniculatus. These extracts have a deep red color which wasn’t present in any extracts that used ethanol as part of the extraction process. We have yet to discover what this red coloring agent is, but it is highly likely that it is a majorly beneficial polyphenol.
After taking our Celastrus paniculatus extract you will likely notice a sharp uptick in mental clarity after about 30-45 minutes (on an empty stomach). These are just the acute effects, the effects extend a lot deeper after long term dosing, similar to other Ayurvedic nootropics such as Bacopa monnieri. After long term dosing, the memory enhancement effects become a lot more pronounced, and the mood elevation also becomes more pronounced over time.
In general, you can expect a wonderful array of effects from Celastrus paniculatus, first and foremost providing lots of mental clarity, followed by a solid lift to memory and mood!
