Mang Lucid Dream Aid
Mang Lucid Dream Aid is a non-sedating natural lucid dream aid formulated with extracts of Espand, an ancestral plant that has been used by Zoroastrian priests of ancient Iran in rituals to see into the realm of souls and after death. Mang Lucid Dream helps promote dream lucidity and recall in the REM stage of sleep so that you can wake up with insights from your somnus journey.
“REM sleep sparks new creative insights as novel links are forged between unrelated pieces of information.” – Matthew Walker, author of Why We Sleep
- Mang Lucid Dream Aid is formulated to contain a precise dose of select beta-carbolines to support high-frequency brain states during REM sleep in support of lucid insight.
- Mang Lucid Dream Aid promotes neuro anti-inflammation, protects the brain from oxidative stress, and supports neurogenesis while you dream.
- Mang Lucid Dream Aid is all-natural, non-sedating, non-habit-forming, and improves over time.
- Wake up with creativity, new ideas, and wisdom from your nightly inner journey.

- Take one capsule 15 minutes before sleeping and at least 3 hours after eating. For best results, take 5 nights in a row followed by 2 nights off every 7 days.
- 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.
How will I feel after taking Mang Lucid Dream Aid?
- Some people report feeling tranquil after taking Mang Lucid Dream Aid, but most people do not feel physiological effects. Some in our community have described the sensation as similar to the sense of relaxation and calm from a mixture of matcha and chamomile tea or supplementation with a stack of theanine + GABA. Upon waking the next day, people report feeling a sense of awe and wonder.
Should I take Mang Lucid Dream Aid every day?
- We designed Mang Lucid Dream Aid so that you can take it safely every night without becoming dependent, although we recommend cycling 5 days on / 2 days off per week.
Is Mang Lucid Dream Aid safe?
- Mang Lucid Dream Aid is safe when taken as directed at the recommended dosage.
- Mang Lucid Dream Aid contains Insight®, a purified plant extract of Espand that is formulated to contain a precise microdose of beta-Carbolines. In addition to their anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties, beta-Carbolines also function as monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs)  that can cause an increase in blood pressure when consuming foods containing tyramine .
- For this reason, Mang Lucid Dream Aid should only be taken on an empty stomach or at least 3 hours after eating. It’s best to avoid consuming tyramine-rich foods altogether when taking Mang Lucid Dream Aid.
How does it work?
- Mang Lucid Dream Aid contains Insight®, a precise formulation of Espand-derived beta-Carbolines that begins to affect the central nervous system within 20 minutes of being ingested. The compounds in Insight® 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, Insight®promotes high-frequency sleep during the REM cycle, supporting lucid insight and recall.
How does Mang Lucid Dream Aid differ from Haoma Deep Sleep Aid?
- Although derived from purified extracts of the same Espand plant, Mang Lucid Dream Aid contains a different blend and dosage of selected beta-Carbolines than Mang Deep Sleep Aid. Mang Lucid Dream Aid is formulated to be slightly perceptive, whereas Haoma Deep Sleep Aid is formulated to be a sub-perceptive microdose
Espand – Holy Plant Wisdom
Mang (Banj) is a strong entheogenic Elixir that is referred to in multiple ancient Zoroastrian texts. The potion was formulated by Magi, priests of ancient Iran and taken in ritual settings to access the realm of after-death through dreaming . We created this ancestral Lucid Dream Aid with the inspiration of Mang, to help you derive lucid insights from your nightly REM sleep cycle.
The key ingredient in Mang Lucid Dream Aid is Espand, also known as Wild Rue or Peganum Harmala. 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.
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 .
Dreams that are complex and immersive tend to occur during the REM stage of the sleep cycle . REM sleep is characterized by brainwave patterns that are similar to that of the awake state, in particular, high-frequency beta and gamma brainwaves that are associated with insight and connectivity . Supplementation with Mang Lucid Dream Aid has been shown in individuals to increase high-frequency brain patterns during the REM stage of sleep, promoting lucidity and recall of vivid dreams.
