Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid
Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid is a non-sedating natural sleep aid formulated with natural extracts of Espand, an ancestral plant that has been used by our Iranian ancestors for thousands of years in ritualistic traditions, and Boletus edulis mushrooms which have also been used for thousands of years in culinary and medicinal practices since the beginning of trade between the Persian and Roman Empires. Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid is a sub-perceptive microdose formula meant to increase the restorative deep stage of your overnight sleep cycle, helping you form a natural and healthy habit.
“Sleep is the single most effective thing we can do to reset our brain and body health each day – Mother Nature’s best effort yet at contra-death.” – Matthew Walker, author of Why We Sleep
- Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid is formulated to contain a precise sub-perceptive microdose of select beta-Carbolines that support restorative slow wave deep sleep and brain detoxification.
- The anti-inflammatory nighttime effect of beta-Carbolines in Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid have been shown to be amplified synergistically in combination with the unique antioxidants found in porcini mushrooms.
- Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid is all-natural, non-sedating, and non habit-forming. Its effectiveness improves over time with consistent use.
- Wake up well-rested from a high-efficiency deep sleep.
These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
- Take one capsule 15 minutes before sleeping and at least 3 hours after eating.
- Do not exceed the recommended daily dose. Do not take it if you are pregnant or nursing. Consult with your physician prior to use if you have high blood pressure or a medical condition, or if you take any prescription medications (including but not limited to MAO inhibitors and antidepressants).
- Store in a cool, dry place. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
How will I feel after taking Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid ?
- Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid is a sub-perceptive microdose formulation that will not cause you to feel physiological effects. Upon waking the next day, people report feeling refreshed from a good night of deep sleep.
Can I take Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid every day?
- The neuromodulatory effects of Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid are immediate but sub-perceptive, non-sedative, and not habit-forming. We designed Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid’s microdose formulation so that you can take it every night without becoming dependent, a buildup or accumulation.
- Although not habit-forming, we recommend incorporating Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid into a consistent nightly ritual in the formation of healthy sleep habits. Over time, your sleep quality and efficiency will continue to improve with the adoption of healthy sleep habits.
Why is it best to take Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid on an empty stomach?
- The majority of your body’s neurotransmitters are in the gut, not the brain. For this reason we recommend taking Haurvatat in the evening at least 3 hours after eating, as food can interfere with neurotransmitter absorption. While this is not a requirement, the closer your stomach is to empty, the higher the bioavailability.
Is Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid safe?
- Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid is safe when taken as directed at the recommended dosage.
- We designed our Haurvatat® formula from the purified natural plant extracts of Espand and natural fungi extracts of Boletus edulis mushrooms. In addition to their anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties, the natural beta-Carbolines extracted from Espand also function as monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs)  that can cause an increase in blood pressure when consuming foods containing tyramine .
- The levels of tyramine in food have been decreasing over time, thanks to advancements in agricultural technology and improvements in food processing and storage. Although tyramine related hypertension affects only a small minority of the population, we recommend avoiding tyramine-rich foods when taking Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid. Taking Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid on an empty stomach will also mitigate the risk of hypertension and nausea.
How does it work?
- Our Deep Sleep Aid contains Haurvatat®, a precise microdose formulation of Espand-derived beta-Carbolines and Boletus edulis-derived antioxidants that, while sub-perceptive, begins to affect the central nervous system within 20 minutes of being ingested. The compounds in Haurvatat® have been shown to:
- Inhibit neurotoxins  and provide neuroprotective antioxidant effects 
- Inhibit tumor cells  and promote the growth of anti-tumor cytokines 
- Inhibit inflammatory signaling and the growth of inflammatory prostaglandins 
- Promote neurogenesis by increasing BDNF and hNPC levels
- Modulate neuroreceptors such as serotonin, dopamine, acetylcholine, histamine, and imidazoline that are involved in perception and consciousness 
- Through these actions, Haurvatat promotes deep slow wave sleep, amplifying neuro detox and restorative healing while you sleep. Furthermore, the antioxidants found in Boletus edulis mushrooms have been shown to amplify the neuroprotective effects of beta-Carbolines and glymphatic activity of your brain’s deep sleep phase.
Will Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid help me fall asleep faster or help me with insomnia?
- Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid is non drowsy, and is not formulated to help you fall asleep faster nor stay asleep longer. It will help to improve the efficiency of your deep slow wave sleep cycle, to improve the restorative effects during the time that you are asleep.
- Many in our community have shared that the process of creating an evening ritual centered around the consumption of Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid has helped to form a healthy sleep habit in which it takes them less time to fall asleep.
How does Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid differ from Mang Lucid Dream Aid?
- Although derived from purified extracts of the same Espand plant, Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid contains a different blend and dosage of selected beta-Carbolines than Mang Lucid Dream Aid. While Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid is formulated to promote slow wave brain activity during the deep phase of sleep, Mang Lucid Dream aid is formulated to promote high frequency brain activity during the REM phase of sleep.
- Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid is formulated to be a sub-perceptive microdose, whereas Mang Lucid Dream Aid is formulated to be a slightly perceptive minidose.
What happened to Haoma Deep Sleep Aid?
- Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid replaces the supplement that was formerly called Haoma Deep Sleep Aid. We made a few improvements to the deep sleep formulation, and decided to rename the product Haurvatat in honor of the Zoroastrian ideal of healthy balance.

Espand – Holy Plant Wisdom
Haoma, also known as Soma, is the sacred potion used ritually since 1600 BCE in Pagan, Zoroastrian, and Vedic traditions of Ancient Persia and India for the pursuit of wisdom, insight, and immortality . Espand, also known as Wild Rue or Peganum Harmala, is believed to be the fundamental ancestral plant used in concocting Haoma and is the key ingredient in Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid.
Espand is an abundant source of beta-carbolines , a class of naturally occurring organic compounds with psychoactive and neuroprotective properties . Beta-carbolines are found naturally in a few plants, including Espand (P. Harmala) and Yage (Banisteriopsis Caapi), the ancestral Amazonian plant that is the main ingredient in the psychedelic brew Ayahuasca . Thanks to modern science, we now understand the neurochemistry behind what our ancestors discovered thousands of years ago.
Boletus edulis (Porcini) – Culinary and Medicinal Delight
Boletus edulis is a type of edible fungus that dates back to 92 BCE, when trade began between the Persian and Roman Empires, where it was prized for its delicious flavor and medicinal properties. Not only is it the key ingredient in a prized wild mushroom soup recipe, it has been used ancestrally as medicine for pain relief and to treat a variety of physical ailments such as stomachache and diarrhea.
Boletus edulis is a rich source of natural antioxidants such as ergothioneine, L-theanine, and glutathione that have been used to improve sleep and cognitive function. These compounds affect neuroreceptors such as glutamate which is involved in the regulation of the body’s sleep cycles. These antioxidants in Boletus edulis synergistically amplify the deep sleep stage alpha-wave boosting effects of Espand-derived beta-Carbolines in combination, and complement its neuroprotective activity.
Beta-Carbolines – Ancestral Secret to Neurological Health
Beta-carbolines such as harmine  are unique neuromodulators that have been shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory activity in neurons  and promote neurogenesis by increasing levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF)  and human neural progenitor cells (hNPC) .
Beta-carbolines also interact with the sleep cycle via the pineal gland, the part of the brain that regulates the body’s circadian rhythm. The pineal gland regulates the sleep cycle via the synthesis of melatonin from serotonin (the “happiness hormone”) , and is also believed to produce both beta-carbolines and the psychedelic compound DMT (the “spirit molecule”) via alternate pathways .
Supplementation with Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid has been shown in individuals to increase the % of time spent in the stage of deep sleep per night.
The deep sleep stage is characterized by a prevalence of low-frequency delta brainwaves, often termed slow wave sleep . Deep sleep is particularly important to the functioning of the glymphatic system , which flushes and detoxifies the brain of toxins such as amyloid plaques during this slow-wave phase of sleep . Abnormal sleep patterns that result in nonrestorative sleep, restlessness, and fatigue are characterized by a preponderance of mid-frequency alpha brainwaves during sleep cycles .
Supplementation with Haurvatat Deep Sleep Aid has been shown in individuals to increase slow-wave brain patterns during sleep, promoting deep sleep, restoration, and neurological detox.

I placed my order on 9/21, it still hasn’t arrived. When I click on the tracking link USPS says they’ve made a label for it but it still hasn’t shipped, I haven’t received any updates, still waiting for my order.
I'm so sorry that your package has not arrived. It is rare that USPS loses packages, but it seems that you are one of the unlucky ones. Your order went out the same day as three other shipments, 2 that were scanned properly / already delivered but 1 other looks like it was lost along with yours.
I'm very sorry that we did not notice earlier that your tracking information had not yet been delivered. While we file for an investigation with the post office, I will ship out a new order for you first thing tomorrow morning.
I've used Haurvatat sleep aid for on multiple nights and it has not helped me at all in falling asleep at all.
Thank you for providing your feedback and giving Ancestral Magi a try. Haurvatat deep sleep aid is not intended to help you fall asleep. Rather it helps to improve your sleep efficiency for the time that you are asleep, by increasing the portion of your sleep cycle spent in deep sleep.
I’m sorry if we did it make this explicitly clear to you. We intentionally formulated Haurvatat to be non-drowsy, and so it will not help you fall asleep faster. But I hope that you did notice that the time you are asleep has been more effective. For some in our community who really suffer from insomnia, even though their sleep trackers do report a higher % of time spent in deep vs. light sleep, the number of hours they sleep is unfortunately so low in total that higher sleep efficiency does not have a large impact in how they feel upon waking.
I have tried several supplements to help with occasional insomnia- this one of the best! Great to find something truly helpful. Ever since I started using it 2 months ago I always stay supplied.
While I love the artwork and the concepts put forth by the Ancestral Magi site, the reality is that the capsules are very small, the price is very high and the delivery method isn’t the best. My understanding is that Liposomol type of delivery would be much better.
Nothing. Zilch. Nada. Tiny little capsules were supposed to do what exactly?
I feel kinda dumb for buying this, especially for almost $50!🤦🏻♀️
