Creative thinking tea may improve mood and creative thinking, as well as enhance dreaming and manifested ideas.
Creative thinking is an inventive skill that involves using your abilities and soft skills to develop solutions to new problems. A creative thinker assesses a problem from different angles and develops a plan on how to solve it. This focus on creativity and innovation is pivotal because many problems require solutions that have never been implemented before or that need to be implemented in a new way.
Polygala tenuifolia herbal extract, also known as Seneca and Chinese Senega, is among the 50 fundamental herbs used in traditional Chinese medicine due to its antioxidant, energy support, cognitive support, and immune system support properties. It is believed to possess healing powers and offer tremendous health benefits as a creative thinking tea, as I’ll describe below.

DISS strengthened APP-neural stem cell proliferation and neuronal differentiation, and DISS treatment for four weeks showed the capability to attenuate cognitive deficits, neuronal injures, and neurogenesis disorder.
