Newly discovered tiny meningeal lymph vessels that drain dangerous toxins from the brain have proved to be a game-changer in Western medicine.
Congestion of these vessels has been linked to cognitive decline, mood issues, inflammation, autoimmune concerns and more. Not surprisingly, these lymph vessels were described thousands of years ago in Ayurvedic texts, as well as exactly how to detoxify them.
Learn how to detoxify your brain’s lymph and find the mental clarity and mood stability you have been searching for.

Herbs and Supplements:
Manjistha: Ayurveda has observed that red-pigmented roots and berries are typically powerful lymph movers that can be found in nature. Manjistha is perhaps the herbal red-pigmented root that is most commonly used for globally moving the lymph in the body, helping the lymph to drain the waste from your body and regulate the immune system. Manjistha can also help nutrients to feed the cells in an optimal way.
Lymph-Vein HP: Extensively researched citrus-based flavonoids in a unique micronized form help support all the body’s circulatory systems. Encourage healthy veins, capillaries, and blood flow, promote healthy lymphatic drainage, and enhance antioxidant activity and the body’s normal response to inflammation.
Brahmi Brain: The herb Brahmi has long been revered in Ayurveda for its mental-clarity enhancing properties. Recent research has designated Brahmi as a powerful agent for microcirculation – meaning that beyond being a boon to the circulation as we know it, Brahmi enhances blood flow into event the smallest vessels, thereby powerfully supporting the skin and water retention.
Neem: Neem (Azadirachta indica) is traditionally called “the Queen of Skin,” as it supports healthy skin.* While we have skin that wraps our bodies, we have even more skin on the inside of the body. There is the skin or epithelium that lines the digestive and respiratory tract as well as numerous other locations in the body such as the arteries and heart. It is said that 80% the complexion and radiance of the skin is due to the health of the inner skin of the gut. Neem is Ayurveda’s most powerful support for healthy inner and outer skin. Neem also supports healthy liver, intestinal, pancreatic and immune function. Neem has been historically used for the treatment of skin in beauty and skin care products, and we employ it in our LifeSpa skin care line.
Amalaki: Amalaki (Emblica officinalis), also known as Indian Gooseberry, is a small fruit from the Amla tree. Amalaki may be most well known for its support of antioxidant activity and healthy skin via the encouragement of collagen and elastin production. In this way, Amalaki supports not only the health of the outer skin, but also the inner skin that lines the gut, respiratory tract, and all the mucous membranes of the body. Notably, Amalaki has also been shown to encourage healthy good and bad cholesterol levels in support of optimal heart and cardiovascular health.
