Celastrus paniculata is a treasured medicinal herb that is revered for its effects on the brain cells and has been used for centuries in Ayurveda for sharpening the memory and increasing intellect.  Typically it is used as a cognitive enhancer for those of all ages, but personal experimentation has shown that if it's taken about 1 hour before bedtime, it can also be a powerful aid in achieving lucid dreams, and at a minimum, a great tool to aid in dream recall.

In folk medicine, the seeds are boiled and taken for purification of body and mind through the cleansing of blood. The seeds constitute the drug; they are slightly bitter, and hence used almost always with a natural sweetener like Licorice root (which enhances its effects) or Stevia leaves.  To use whole seeds effectively, simply chew 10-12 of them at a time, or steep 1 tsp of seeds in 4 cups of boiling hot water for 3 hours. Then, sweeten to taste, and drink throughout the day to enhance mental capabilities and cognitive thinking brain patterns.

Celastrus paniculata is famed for its effects on the brain cells and was traditionally used for sharpening the memory and increasing intellect.  In recent pre-clinical studies, rats and mice orally administered an extract of the seed were able to learn new mazes in far less time, thereby showing an enhancement of cognitive function. Further pre-clinical studies of the seed extract have shown learning and memory improvement in both physical and mental paradigms of animals. These studies were inspired by the centuries-old use of Celastrus paniculatus seed in Ayurveda for the support of cognition.

Further pre-clinical studies of the seed extract have conclusively showed an improvement in learning and memory in both physical and mental paradigms. The study demonstrates that the cognitive-enhancing properties of Celastrus paniculatus seed, which is now being pursued for this very purpose by the pharmaceutical companies!

As reported in a variety of sources, Celastrus has documented use as an aphrodisiac, a powerful brain tonic to stimulate intellect, to increase cognitive recognition (which helps with dreams), to sharpen memory, to promote intelligence (it is known as Mags-zudi or "brain clearer"), as a brain tonic or stimulant.
