The Soul Vine's Banisteriopsis Caapi Products
Ayahuasca is a sacred plant medicine and an herbal agent that has profound and powerful healing properties for the physical, mental and emotional bodies. 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 against 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.
Banisteriopsis caapi (also known as Ayahuasca, Caapi or Yage) is a vine that has had a long history of entheogenic use and has been regarded as a “plant teacher”. Traditionally, Banisteriopsis caapi has been used medicinally among the indigenous peoples of the Amazon rainforest. The name Ayahuasca literally means "vine of the soul".
The Shamans believe that Banisteropsis caapi helps enhance people’s empathy as a protective and nurturing teacher plant, allowing them to give guidance in the community. It may also have the following effects:
- Hunger suppressant
- Hunting aid (improved vision)
- Helps with depression and anxiety
- Helps relieve symptoms of neuro-degenerative diseases
Soul Vine's Banisteriopsis caapi is of the highest quality and sourced directly from the Peruvian region of the Amazon rainforest by the safe keepers of the jungle, constantly monitoring the harvest and making sure new vine is planted to maintain the plant species.
The major components reported in Banisteriopsis caapi are B-carboline alkaloids (such as Harmine, harmaline, and tetrahydroharmin), which are alkaloids with MAOI type properties. Banisteriopsis caapi is also rich in antioxidants, proanthocyanidins, epicatechin and procyanidin B2.
The process of making the drops
The process of making the drops
Our base product comes from our sustainable source in Peru. It is harvested on the full moon then prayed over and blessed by the plant gatherers and makers while the extract is being made. The drops are made here in California on the full moon to harvest the energy of the moon as well. They are made in a laboratory setting while praying and singing mantras by everyone. Later they are given a live sound bath with gongs and crystal bowls while placed on blocks of selenite crystals to get charged. Besides the amazing plant medicine and its powerful spirit, so much love goes into these bottles. You will feel all that vibration when you microdose. Our whole team is personally involved in the whole process. Madre's message has come to us very clearly. It's our mission and purpose to bring these plants in the highest quality with integrity and love to all who are called and seek the healing of the plants.
