Blue Lotus Extract 25x – Nymphaea caerulea
Our Blue Lotus 25X is a high quality, ultra-fine powder extract that is water soluble and made from Nymphaea caerulea.
Nymphaea caerulea, commonly referred to as blue lotus, or sacred blue lily of the Nile, is a water lily that is native to northern and central Africa. Blue lotus was once abundant in the Nile Delta but is now considered endangered in this region. While it still grows in parts of Egypt and Southeast Asia, it has naturalized throughout eastern Australia, the Pacific Islands, Argentina and parts of Brazil.
It has a long history of use in traditional medicine and spiritual practices, and its effects have been described as relaxing. Blue Lotus flower’s usage can be traced back to ancient Egypt when it was believed mythologically, culturally, and medicinally to aid sexual health and vitality.
Blue Lotus Extract Plant biology:
Blue lotus is a tropical water lily that produces star shaped blue flowers that grow up to 6” in diameter. Flowers often bloom from July- September and they open each morning and close at night fall. Its leaves float on the surface of the water and its roots grow in the muddy bottom of ponds and rivers. The plant produces small, nut-like fruits that contain the seeds from which the plant can be propagated. Blue lotus requires a warm environment with plenty of sunshine! This water lily has been studied for its chemical compounds, specifically apomorphine and nuciferine. Apomorphine is known as a nonselective dopamine agonist.
