Ayahuasca, meaning ‘vine of the soul’, is traditionally used as a plant medicine amongst the indigenous people of the Amazon Rainforest.
The Ayahuasca plant can be brewed alone as Banisteriopsis Caapi, or in combination with the Chakruna plant which creates the psychoactive Ayahuasca often associated with South American Ayahuasca ceremonies, administered by Shamans for its purgative, cleansing and healing properties.
Banisteriopsis Caapi, or ‘Aya Vine’ as it is commonly known, does not contain DMT, which is only present in the Chakruna plant.
However, Aya Vine alone is a sacred plant medicine and herbal agent, that has incredibly profound and powerful healing properties for the physical, mental and emotional bodies.
The Shamans believe that as a ‘master plant’ it helps enhance people’s empathy and contains a protective and nurturing energy, known as Mother Aya.
Apart from its indigenous use as a medicine for the healing of the mind, body and soul, studies in Western medicine regarding its healing properties have been impressive.
A study published in Scientific Reports journal in 2017 has shown the effects of Caapi, Alkaloids, Harmine, Harmaline and Tetrahydroharmine (which are MAO inhibitors), to increase brain function, work as an antioxidant and antidepressant, and help to relieve symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease.
Also, Banisteriopsis caapi may help treat adult neurological disorders by stimulating neuroplasticity and its antioxidant properties can help protect the neural cell damage.
B-Caapi may also have the following benefits:
- Helps with depression and anxiety
- Helps focus attention
- Inspires creativity
- Increases receptivity to new ideas and improves decision making
- Increases periods of being in ‘flow’
- Enhances intuition
- Brings deeper feelings of gratitude and love to self and others
- Grounding, and helps develop stronger boundaries
- Brings greater energy (and vitality)
- Helps release trauma, old patterns and habits
- Promotes deep inner calm
- Helps bring clarity to finding and fulfilling your life purpose
- Can help relieve symptoms of neuro-degenerative diseases (Parkinsons etc)
- Hunting aid (improved vision)
The Aya Vine we use comes direct from our reliable and sustainable source in Peru. It is harvested on the full moon and blessed by the plant gatherers, while the extract is being made.
Once received, the B-Caapi tinctures are then made on a full moon in London in a cleansed, clean and sterile environment. They are blessed with singing mantras and prayer, while placed to cool alongside crystals to charge their powerful spirit energy.
So much love goes into the creation of these bottles because we personally know the healing benefits of Mother Aya and believe it is our mission to share Earth’s gift to all who are called and seek the healing of these plants. The loving vibration is evident in every bottle of Banisteriopsis Caapi when microdosed.
Ingredients: 100% Banisteriopsis Caapi and Distilled Water.
Directions for Microdosing
Place 5 drops under your tongue and allow it to sit for 20 minutes, preferably during meditation, before swallowing. Resting your tongue gently against the roof of your mouth for the 20 minutes decreases saliva and aids a more comfortable meditation.
The dosage can be increased or decreased after 7 days, according to your mental, emotional and physical response to the original 5 drops.
Trust your intuition with this, as it is believed the spirit of the medicine will guide you to find your personalized dose. Guidance can vary on a daily or weekly basis.
There are no dietary restrictions while micro-dosing on Banisteriopsis Caapi, however you may find a decreased desire for certain food and an increased awareness for cleaner, healthier living.
A Course of B-Caapi is suggested for 30 days. Followed by a 14 day break, before beginning the second course. Then repeat, 30 days on, 14 days off. Again, trust your intuition with this, if it feels right to take a longer break between courses, do so.
A 30ml bottle of Aya Vine will last for about 3 months/3 courses, depending on the droplet dosage.
Always consult a Doctor if taking other medications.
Banisteriopsis Caapi is a natural MAO-inhibitor and should not be taken while taking any MAO or SSR inhibitors, antidepressants, anti-anxiety, anti-psychotic, sleeping meds, or any supplements or herbs that contain MAOIs or SSRIs and breast feeding or pregnant.
There are no documented side-effects for micro-dosing Banisteriopsis Caapi alone. However, Banisteriopsis Caapi contains MAO inhibiting compounds which if taken with or within close proximity to other herbs, drugs and supplements that contain MAOIs and SSRIs, could pose a serious risk.
