Key Benefits

Stress Relief

There’s no doubt that stress is the leading cause of chronic conditions today, and on some level, we’re all experiencing it. This has seen a recent rise in the popularity of adaptogenic herbs, as a way we can access the power of nature to stop stress wrecking havoc on the body. One Eleven Bliss contains multiple adaptogens like ashwagandha,shatavari and tulsi, blended with other potent herbs that pacify the nervous system  to support you in managing stress and the demands of daily life. 

The potent herbs in Bliss nurture the body at such a deep level that it acts before the symptoms arrive, preventing stress from manifesting into disease. 

Choosing and Adaptogen

An adaptogen is a herb that helps to counteract the effects of stress on the body. But, not all “adaptogens” are created equal. One Eleven Bliss contains true adaptogens that respond to your body’s needs at any given time. That’s why its rejuvenating properties boost energy in the morning, and because it is not a stimulant, supports deep restful sleep when taken before bed.

While most stress-fighting adaptogens have hidden stimulating properties, few claim the ability to rejuvenate rather than stimulate.

Before choosing your daily adaptogen, take the product before bed. If you cannot sleep after taking it, it may be a stimulant in disguise, (e.g. ginseng) and not a pure enough adaptogen to be taken daily.

Mental Calm & Clarity

One Eleven Bliss helps provide you with optimal clarity, focus and to stay on top of your game throughout the day be enhancing your capability to perform optimal neurological, mental and physiological functions.

Having a strong presence of Prana in the head equals strong stability in the mind. Bliss achieves this by increasing your adaptation energy to whatever stressors come your way, providing you with the capability and space to metabolise stressors and various sensory stimuli before they become imprinted in your brain.

Bliss contains a wonderful combination of vata pacifying herbs like ashwagandha, yathimadhu, kala musali, amalaki, guduchi, bhrami, gotu kola, useera, chandan, and tulsi. These herbs combined stabilise the nervous system and help regulate excessive thoughts or worries that an overactive “vata mind” may be causing as well as help pacify overactive heart palpitations that may be induced by vata (excess movement in the heart and nervous system).

Bliss provides calm and strength while pacifiying an over-active mind by balancing the prana (life-force) in the head, known as “Prana Vata”, which controls all movements in the head (pathways of thinking, cognitive action, hormonal secretions, thoughts). It regulates these factors along with the central nervous system and life-force residing in the head. 

Pacifies Anxiety

Bliss is helpful for restoring calm during any stressful situation or sensations of anxiety, including performance anxiety. During experiences of overwhelming emotions like anxiety, panic or anxiety attacks, Bliss may provide assistance in helping to restore the experience of calm and balance. Mukta bhasma is powerful here as it energises the nerve endings and almost immediately activates the nervous system, settling the nervous system down.

For best results, enjoy One Eleven Bliss regularly to help prevent the body from falling into these states of nervous system distress and acute stress, worry or anxiety, rather than just in the moment itself.

Some other complementary and highly effective ways to reduce and prevent and reduce feelings of anxiety in combination of taking Bliss daily include meditation, self-massage, and nutritious warm cooked foods.

Pacifies Overwhelming Emotions and Nourishes the Heartspace

Bliss pacifies the “fire in the heart”, known as “Sadhaka Pitta.” It helps “cool down” heated emotions like anger, tension, frustration, irritability and jealousy.

The combination of pitta-pacifying and cooling herbs like yasthimadhu (liquorice), amalaki, brahmi, mustaka, vetiver, sandalwood, gotu kola and mukta (pearl ash) have a calming and anti-inflammatory effect.

As well as soothing the energetic heart space and cooling down intense emotions, the combination of Mukta (pearl), Amalaki, Gotu Kola and Arjuna helps create strength for the physical heart for optimal pumping and respiratory function. 

Chandan (sandalwood) has a nourishing effect on the sensory organs which results in a pleasant sensory experience according to Ayurveda (known as “Ahladana”). Chandan in combination with other herbs like guduchi, gotu kola, brahmi, ashwagandha, mustaka is used in Ayurveda to calm an aggravated nervous system, help with depression and even heated irritation in the head and eyes like headaches.


More Blissful, Deeper Meditations

One Eleven contains herbs that have been taken by thousands of years by meditators for spiritual purposes, enhancing spiritual capacity, enlivening unity by opening up the physical channels and increasing bliss chemistry in meditations for a more harmonious and deep meditation experience.

The initial reason Bliss was formulated over 100 years ago by a family of Ayurvedic doctors was to assist Rishis and Yogis to go deeper in their meditations and spiritual practices. This is achieved in One Eleven Bliss due to the unique combination of “medhya” herbs - herbs that enhance the intelligence. It is the complex combination of herbs like Brahmi, Gotu Kola, Chandana, Guduchi, Yasthimadhu, Mukta Bhasma,Tulsi and more that enhances the mind-body connection. This allows the body to effortlessly follow the mind and consciousness into the levels of transcendence with the least friction possible. 

Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia) is known as “Amrit” which means nectar of immortality. It provides this subtle nutrition to the pranic (potent life-force energy) aspects of the physiology. Guduchi is also known as “Chinnodbhava” which means “able to grow even when cut.”(1) Guduchi is so full of life energy (“Prana”) that it has the ability to grow even without soil or water. 

Traditionally, great yogis and sages have been known to live without food or water, but rather pranic energy from the air and sun alone and in some cases, the only thing to enter their mouths have been only a few sacred herbs like Guduchi

The leaves of tulsi contain potent prana by those who consume even the water that drops from a tulsi leaf (this is why tulsi is powerful medicine for the respiratory tract).(12-15)

Chandan (sandalwood) is one of the key herbs for spiritual practice. It has a specific effect on Ajna Chakra (third eye / pineal gland) which creates a harmonious quality in meditations.

There are multiple mind and intelligence enhancing herbs in One Eleven bliss, but it is the synergy of all the herbs combined which creates a formula that optimises the state of the nervous system, creating a deep harmony with the subtle layers of physiology which ultimately  helps provide one with the perceptual capacity to commune with the divine layers of the cosmos. 

Other ways to enhance spiritual experiences and deepen your meditations in combination with taking One Eleven Bliss include doing alternate nostril breathing (pranayama) before meditation, eating food that’s easy to digest allowing for a greater feeling of lightness of Being, enriching your Vedic knowledge, practicing self-abhyanga and meditating before sunrise and/or at sunrise and sunset.

Supports Deeper Sleep

One Eleven Bliss contains adrenal-rejuvenating herbs that support your body to reduce and regulate cortisol (your body’s stress hormone) at night time to promote deeper, more restorative sleep.

When the body has the capacity to reduce cortisol according to the circadian clock (bed time), melatonin (the anti-inflammatory hormone of darkness that is responsible for regenerative sleep) is able to increase.

This balance of reduced cortisol and increased melatonin at night, which the body itself is able to regulate with the additional combination of the adaptogenic herbs used in One Eleven Bliss helps one to wake up feeling well rested and over time will basically make you want to jump out of bed with energy in the morning. Imagine that!

Increases Vitality and Immunity

One Eleven Bliss nourishes the heart which increases a subtle bio-liquid substance called Ojas in the body. Ojas is related to promoting immunity, vitality, lustre and reproductive power. When Ojas is strong, these areas of your biology are strong.

The combination of Chandan, Guduchi, Arjuna, Amalaki, Gotu Kola and Ashwagandha plus other herbs in 111 Bliss builds the essence of the body tissues which nourishes the vitality in the heart, which (Ojas) then circulates throughout the body.

These heart nourishing herbs combined with Ojas boosting herbs like Aswagandha, Kala Musli, Guduchi, Tulsi, Mukta Bhasma and Chandana help increase overall immunity and reproductive essence.

Another name for Kala Mulsi (Curculigo orchioides) is “Sankari” which translates to “causes production of sukra (reproductive tissue).” This along with ashwagandha, tulsi and chandan enhance libido and vigour. 

Guduchi is one of the most powerful herbs to boost the immune system. Another name for Guduchi is “Amrit”, which literally translates to “immortal”. This name is given because of Guduchis fantastic immune modulating actionswhich helps protect from disease and promote longevity. Tulsi has been shown to enhance the immune response in humans, which stems from a stable reserve of Ojas.

Once you have an adequate reserve of Ojas established, it then creates kapha, the stable bio-energy in the body which promotes immunity, overall strength and stable brain function.

Other ways to nourish and build ojas include eating a diet of fresh organic food, drinking high quality, prana-filled water, self-massage, giving love, consuming ojas-increasing foods like milk ghee and honey, and taking rasayanas (ayurvedic herbal elixirs) because they can build ojas faster and more effectively than most foods.

Promotes Brain Health

Once you have built a sufficient and healthy reserve of Ojas, it then spreads throughout the body and builds kapha. Kapha is a liquid and earth dominated bio-energy in the body that functions to uphold the coherence and structure of the body in a stable way.

One of the areas Kapha resides is in the brain. This is called “tarpaka kapha” and is correlated with cerebrospinal fluid, the glymphatic system (brain lymph) and brain fluids and lubricants.

111 Bliss enhances the health of Tarpaka kapha, preventing dryness of the brain which ultimately causes neuro-degenerative disorders like Alzeimers and Dementia.

The mind-enhancing and nervous system soothing effects of Brahmi are glorious. Brahmi provides micro-capillary dilation: it helps open the capillaries in the brain so you can absorb mitochondrial and pranic energy. This is how Brahmi helps to improve memory, learning ability and concentration.

Brahmi in combination with Gotu Kola, Tulsi, Ashwagandha and Arjuna and other Bliss ingredients helps to aid recovery from exhaustion, stress and debility. The combination of “medhya” herbs in Bliss, (herbs that increase intelligence) have been shown to support people living with ADHD, Asperger’s syndrome, autism, depression and drug addiction.

The brain strength that One Eleven Bliss helps to provide also enhances coherence and connectivity of neurotransmitters and neurological function. This also creates a stable and grounded mind. Bliss promotes a healthier brain and stable mind to enhance memory, intelligence and alertness.

Other ways you can support your brain health include using Nasya oil, using Ghee in your diet, self-massage with oil application and massage to the scalp, and meditation.

Even for those who don’t experience these “fiery emotions”, Mustaka enhances mental coherence and a state of calm by stabilising ones mental state from all the chaos and stress that is occurring in environments.

What's so unique about Mustaka that along side of this deep calming, relaxing and stabilising action, it also has a pungent stimulating taste which stimulates laziness, states of inertia and depression and sluggish digestion and constipation - so basically it helps slows down a busy mind and hyper-active physiology while ensuring things don’t slow down too much.

For millennia, tulsi has been grown for spiritual purposes in the backyards of most Indian homes. It's branches are carved into beads and worn to enhance spiritual progress. Its fragrance is used to purify temples and the leaves are used in sacred ceremonies to honour God and heighten one’s awareness. What is not commonly known about the Tulsi plant are its best kept secrets, it’s medicinal value.
