Turmeric is a spice with many potential health benefits, mainly due to its active compound, curcumin.

  • Curcumin has strong anti-inflammatory properties and may help with conditions such as osteoarthritis, where it can reduce stiffness and improve physical function​ (​.
  • Turmeric may also help ease symptoms of depression by increasing serotonin and dopamine levels in the brain​ (Cleveland Clinic)​.

Lion's Mane

Lion's mane is a mushroom with a range of potential health benefits, particularly for cognitive function and mood.

  • Several studies suggest that lion's mane may boost brain cell growth and improve memory by promoting nerve growth​ (mdpi)​​ (ScienceDaily)​.
  • In one high quality study, a single dose of lion's mane, participants performed quicker on cognitive tasks. After 28 days of supplementation, there was a trend toward reduced stress, suggesting that lion's mane may have beneficial effects on cognitive performance and mood​ (mdpi)​.
  • Researchers found that active compounds in the mushroom promote neurogenesis, indicating that lion's mane could support brain health and enhance memory formation​ (ScienceDaily)​.

Rhodiola Rosea

  • This adaptogenic herb has been used traditionally to treat stress-induced fatigue, depression, and anxiety, as well as to enhance physical performance​ (NCCIH)​.
  • Rhodiola has anti-inflammatory properties, suppressing pro-inflammatory cytokines and reducing inflammation in certain contexts​ (Self-Powered Recovery)​.
  • Rhodiola has been found to have strong antioxidant effects, containing compounds that can scavenge reactive oxygen species and protect cells from oxidative stress​ (Self-Powered Recovery)​.

Mitragyna Speciosa (Kratom)

Kratom has reported potential to reduce symptoms of anxiety and increase energy.

  • Some users report that kratom can provide increased energy, alertness, and focus​ (NIH News in Health)​ Kratom has stimulating effects, which can boost energy and focus, potentially aiding productivity or combating fatigue​ (Frontiers)​.
  • Some users suggest that Kratom enhances sociability and confidence, making them feel more comfortable in social situations​ (NCCIH)​.
  • Johns Hopkins reported that "the natural herb kratom may have therapeutic effects and relatively low potential for abuse or harm", according to a user survey (


  • A comprehensive systematic review and Bayesian meta-analysis indicated that ashwagandha supplementation might be more effective than a placebo for enhancing physical performance in healthy individuals. It has potential benefits for improving muscle strength, cardiorespiratory fitness, and reducing fatigue​ (mdpi)​.
  • Ashwagandha has also been linked to enhanced maximum oxygen consumption (VO2max), which could benefit athletes and non-athletes alike​ (mdpi)​.


  • Anti-Inflammatory Properties: This anti-inflammatory action might also contribute to enhanced exercise performance, as reduced inflammation can improve muscle function during workouts​ (​.
  • Exercise Performance: Studies suggest that cordyceps can increase VO2 max, a measure of how much oxygen your body absorbs and uses during exercise, indicating better aerobic performance​ (Cleveland Clinic)​. It may also boost ATP production, providing energy to muscles​ (Cleveland Clinic)​
  • Anti-Aging and Stress: Cordyceps is used in traditional Chinese medicine to boost energy and reduce fatigue. Studies suggest it may have anti-aging effects and support mental health by combating environmental and oxidative stress​ (​.

Lemon Balm

  • Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) is a versatile herb with various health benefits, especially for stress relief and anxiety reduction. Lemon balm's effects can be attributed to its bioactive compounds, such as terpenes, tannins, and eugenol, which contribute to its relaxing, antiviral, and antibacterial properties​ (Mount Sinai Health System)​.
  • Studies have shown that lemon balm can help reduce stress and improve mood. A clinical study using lemon balm tea found that consuming it daily for six weeks reduced arterial stiffness and improved skin elasticity in women​ (emerald)​
  • Another randomized clinical trial indicated that lemon balm supplementation could decrease stress and enhance calmness​ (mdpi)​.

Maca Root

  • This adaptogenic root, native to the Peruvian Andes, has been used traditionally for its potential to improve energy and fertility​ (mdpi)​. Scientific studies have explored these benefits, indicating positive effects on sexual function, mood, and hormonal regulation.
  • Studies have shown that maca root can increase sexual desire (jomh)​. Maca supplementation showed significant improvement in self-reported aphrodisia (​.
  • Maca root's effects on anxiety and depression have been examined in animal studies, with some indications of anti-depressant properties​ (​.


  • L-theanine, an amino acid found in tea leaves, is known for promoting relaxation, reducing stress and anxiety, and improving sleep quality. Several studies suggest L-theanine can help alleviate stress-related symptoms and improve cognitive functions​ (mdpi)​.
  • Additionally, L-theanine may have immunomodulatory effects, potentially reducing immunosuppression and improving overall immunity​ (mdpi)​. It can also affect blood pressure, with studies indicating it may help lower systolic and diastolic blood pressure during stress​ (BioMed Central)​.


  • Ginger has been traditionally used to alleviate nausea, reduce inflammation, and support digestive health​ (mdpi)​. Ginger can also help relieve menstrual cramps and may have potential in managing symptoms of osteoarthritis​ (NCCIH)​.
  • Some studies indicate that ginger could play a role in reducing inflammation, acting similarly to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) without the same risk to stomach mucosa​ (mdpi)​.
  • New research also suggests ginger may have immune-boosting properties, potentially stimulating the immune system to help combat autoimmune diseases​ (ScienceDaily)​.


  • Pain Relief and Inflammation: Capsaicin, found in cayenne pepper, has anti-inflammatory properties and can reduce pain. (mdpi)​.
  • Digestion and Gut Health: Cayenne pepper can aid digestion by stimulating digestive juices, helping the body break down food and absorb nutrients. It might also promote a healthy gut microbiome, which is crucial for immune system function​ (Cleveland Clinic)​.
  • Muscular Endurance: Some studies suggest that capsaicin might improve muscular endurance by decreasing perceived exertion during exercise​ (Nutrition Advance)​.
