Hyperactivity Control Herbal Tincture
This hyperactivity control herbal tincture may help address symptoms of ADHD in kids and adults and help with focus. It is filled with a variety of herbs known for their nootropic effects as well as promoting cognitive health and brain function. It has some good nutritive herbs in it as well. This tincture is ok for your kids to take. It was a friend’s kid who had issues with ADHD that triggered the desire in me to create a formula for him. For kids 12+ you can take the adult regular dose. For kids 6-12 take half the dose. And for kids 3-6 take 1/4 the dose. Here is a list of the amazing ingredients in this hyperactivity control formula:
Bacopa Monnieri: Bacopa monnieri is a perennial herb with nootropic and other benefits — and very few side effects. Known as Brahmi in traditional Indian Ayurvedic medicine, Bacopa benefits are said to be many. It’s been used to improve mental clarity and treat ulcers, indigestion, tumors, and mental problems.
Studies show that Bacopa can enhance human memory, reduce stress and anxiety, balance neurotransmitters, protect neurons, work as an antidepressant, and provide other cognitive enhancements. People also use Bacopa for ADHD, dyslexia, Alzheimer’s dementia, and to reduce inflammation.
Ginkgo: Improves brain metabolism of glucose and oxygen. Promotes blood flow to the brain to improve memory and concentration, cognitive & brain function. In managing Alzheimer’s can serve to enhance cerebral circulation, promote memory and cognition, act as an anti-coagulant and anti-oxidant. It’s strong antioxidant effects can increase energy and be used in allergic inflammatory reactions. Useful in peripheral vascular disease and restricted blood flow for any reason. Can inhibit platelet aggregation, relaxes blood vessels and improves their tone, and can be use topically as an anti-inflammatory.
Gotu Kola: Gotu Kola is also a tonic for our blood vessels and connective tissue. As a systemic anti-inflammatory, it is helpful for autoimmune conditions. And it has a reputation for relieving depression, anxiety, and expanding consciousness.
Green Milky Oats: Milky oats are the oat tops harvested when they are in their milky stage, during which the oat tops release a white, milky sap when squeezed. This stage, which lasts approximately one week, occurs after the oat begins flowering and before the seed hardens and becomes the oat grain we eat as oatmeal. Tincturing the milky oats while fresh preserves their bioactive potency. Alternatively, milky oats can be dried and used as a nutritive tonic, and are a beautiful addition to tea blends.
The entire plant is rich in minerals and trace nutrients such as silica, magnesium, phosphorus, chromium, iron, calcium, alkaloids, protein, the vitamin B complex, and vitamins A and C (Holmes, 1997 and Berger, 1998). Regular consumption of an infusion of dried oatstraw and dried milky oats is an excellent way to incorporate vitamins and bioavailable minerals into your diet. The calcium and magnesium in oatstraw help build strong bones.
Along with vitamin B, calcium and magnesium also help soothe and strengthen nerves. Oats are considered one of the best remedies for “feeding” the nervous system, particularly in times of stress and in the case of nervous system weakness or exhaustion associated with depression (Hoffman, 2003), overwork, or emotional trauma
Lemon Balm: Nervine: acts on the nerves. Sedative: calming agent. Mild Antidepressant: relieves feelings of depression. Mild Antispasmodic: reduces voluntary or involuntary muscle spasm. Carminative: gently calms the nerves. Diaphoretic: Induces perspiration. Lemon balm is a relaxing diaphoretic as opposed to a stimulating diaphoretic. Antiviral: destroys or suppresses growth of viruses, generally by supporting the immune system. Antioxidant: prevents free radical or oxidative damage. Lemon balm is a wonderful herb for multiple health conditions and was once considered “an herbal cure-all”. It is most commonly used for stress, anxiety and depression due to its uplifting, yet calming tendencies. Especially when it is combined with other calming herbs like valerian and hops, it helps to reduce anxiety and promote sleep when insomnia is an issue. It’s tasty too, which helps make it that much more appealing when you need an emotional lift!
Pine Bark: Pine bark extract may provide some added benefits for you if you struggle with high blood sugar, pre-diabetes, or diabetes. It also is a good source of vitamin C (the cure for scurvy) as well as numerous phytochemicals, natural plant compounds that support better health. The “all-stars” of the group are proanthocyanidins, powerful antioxidant compounds (more potent than Vitamin C and E) that provide a wealth of added health benefits.
If you’ve been struggling with forgetting small details – like where you put your car keys or what you’re supposed to pick up for dinner – you may be suffering from the early signs of age-related cognitive decline. Stress, poor diet, and lack of sleep can all contribute to sub-optimal brain function, and while diet and exercise are fantastic for boosting healthy brain function, so too is pine bark extract. New research shows that adults over the age of 55, supplementing with Pycnogenol over the course of one year, showed superior results in brain related tasks compared to placebo groups. The researchers believe the benefits stem from pine bark extract’s antioxidant effects and ability to reduce oxidative stress (associated with poor diet, high stress, lack of exercise, etc.)
Rosemary: Rosemary is a rich source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, which are thought to help boost the immune system and improve blood circulation. Rosemary is considered a cognitive stimulant and can help improve memory performance and quality. It is also known to boost alertness, intelligence, and focus.
Herbal tinctures as medicine
Why are tinctures a preferred method of taking herbs? Because tinctures are potent! You don’t waste your money on pills that have been in the manufacturing process for months / years and lose potency! With an alcohol base, the tinctures pull out all the medicinal benefits of the plant, and preserve them naturally for you! They don’t lose potency over time.
With that being said, they are in a non-gmo vodka base. Which is fine for most people. But some people prefer to avoid alcohol in all forms. (even by avoiding real vanilla extract) and we support that choice. These tinctures aren’t for those people. Because of the potential for bacteria to reside in glycerine tinctures, we have decided to only offer vodka based tinctures. These herbs are edible and considered safe for most people. Some people may be allergic to certain herbs and should not use them. It is always best to consult your doctor before using any herbal product if you are taking prescription medications or have a health condition.
