Braintrient (also known as Yi Nao Jiao Nang) is advertised as a product that can support a proper functioning for liver and kidneys. The company behind this supplement is MaxNature.
Many people are now turning to traditional remedies and other ancient “healing techniques” for answers to their health concerns. This product is an herbal supplement manufacturer in China that promises to help consumers treat some health problems, from liver and kidney problems to chronic fatigue, dizziness and blood pressure problems.
Braintrient contains some herbal ingredients that are more familiar to the Traditional Chinese Medicine but also a few well known herbal extracts such as Ginseng or Sweetflag root.


1) Braintrient Ingredients

Braintrient includes the following ingredients: Schisandra seed, Chinese Senega root, Lingzhi mushroom, Tangram root, Sweetflag root, Ginseng, and Ophiopogonis tuber.

Schisandra is also included in energy supplements like Ginza-Plus while nootropics like Fungi Perfecti Lion’s Mane contains other mushrooms.

2) Is Braintrient Right for You?

The producing company claims this herbal supplement is useful for individuals with a fatigued body caused by brain arteriosclerosis, insomnia and memory letdown due to the insufficiency of the “dual vacuity of qi in the blood.” While many of these claims may not make much sense to the average Western consumer, many people trust in this “wisdom.”

Ginseng is a common ingredient for Traditional Chinese Medicine, and it has been used there for thousands of years. While its Effectiveness remains controversial, many scientists believe Ginseng is a “miraculous” ingredient that can treat a broad range of health problems. However, the most recent clinical studies showed mixed results. On top of that, Ginseng is usually associated with some unwanted side effects. The most common one is the inability to sleep. Other side-effects include nausea, diarrhea, euphoria, headaches, high blood pressure, low blood pressure, and vaginal bleeding for some.

Braintrient Yi Nao is another common ingredient for the Traditional Chinese Medicine. They have used this herb for centuries as a way to heal the body and allow the brain to function properly.

The ingredients found in Braintrient aren’t the typical types of herbs that you will find in common body and mind supplements. This can be both a good and a bad thing. If common ingredients do not work for certain consumers, they may want to try something different. On the other hand, these less common ingredients are less researched as well. Their Effectiveness hasn’t been proved through relevant clinical trials and researches.


3) How Much Does Braintrient Cost?

Each bottle of Braintrient contains 36 capsules. The recommended dose is 2-3 capsules three times a day. That means a full bottle of Braintrient should be enough for only four days of treatment.

This supplement can be purchased from online retailers only. The minimum order is for ten bottles. This product ships from China, so it may take longer than usual to receive it.

Final Thoughts

4) Final Thoughts on Braintrient

With so many consumers interested in Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Native American healing practices, the market is saturated with these products. With so many different products available, with so many different ingredients, it may be tough to browse through them and sort out the formulas which are truly effective from those that are not.

Many of the ingredients used in Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Native American healing practices may be unfamiliar to the typical consumer, and so we recommend our readers to research them further online.

For instance, a Chinese apothecary may be a good source of information regarding these roots, seeds, and herbal extracts. Knowing more about these ingredients means you would be able to make better decisions and choose a supplement based on concrete information and not just on “old believes” and myths.
