Male silk moth is an excellent circulation and oxygenation tonic for boosting blood flow, strengthening the nerves and brain, benefiting hormone production, and promoting cognition.*
Male Silk Moth Has a Unique Combination of Nutrition.*
It contains all 18 amino acids, vitamin e, fatty acids, prostaglandins, zinc, chromium, and enzymes, such as serrapeptase, which specifically promotes circulation into the muscles and small capillaries and other hard to reach areas for the flow of blood, like the joints and the surface of the skin.* With better blood flow to and from the muscles, one will have less lactic acid build-up, and greater overall stamina and reduced discomfort.*
Cephalin, a phospholipid called phosphatidylethanolamine, which is a part of nerve cells and brain tissue is found plentifully in male silk moth and supports nerve and brain health.*
Lipid fatty acids and prostaglandins support hormone production.*
This tincture is expertly formulated with Saigon cinnamon, cornus berry and clove to enhance male silk moth's benefits and for great taste.*
The addition of sweet high oil content cinnamon warms the body, boosts circulation, and assist blood flow to the limbs, organs, glands, joints, and brain.*
Cornus, a tasty and tart berry that tones up tissues, supports kidney function and works in combination with many of male silk moths benefits for adrenals, such as stamina and water metabolism.*
We also add the high-antioxidant aromatic spice Clove to make this tonic very tasty and gently stimulating.*
Domestication of the silkworm, Bombyx Mori L., began 5,000 years ago. This species feeds upon the leaves of the mulberry tree.
Silk was a long kept secret of the Chinese, perhaps thousands of years, and was once traded in the old world along The Silk Road.
In Asia and the Pacific, silkworms, like many insect species, and their pupae are considered food and will be found in fine cuisine and are considered to be an excellent source of protein.*
But it is the connoisseurs who delight in the male silk moth, born from their cocoons, which have the capacity to copulate with hundreds of female silk moths before tiring-out.
Within minutes of emerging from their silky cocoons the male silk moth must be separated and collected before it copulates with the females to maintain all the viable nutrients for full potency.*
Many Cultures Consume Insects For Their Unique Nutrition †
- Artisan-formulated for Wholistic Effects and Benefits
- Harvested Before Copulating with Female Moths for Full Nutrient Potency
- All Active Parts of the Male Silk Moth are Extracted and Preserved
- Cold Processed Where Appropriate to Preserve Integrity of Fragile Constituents
- Dual Solvent: Water and Alcohol for 99.9% constituent content
- Stabilized for Natural Preservation - No Preservatives
- Activated for Easy Digestion and Assimilation
This formulation uses moderately-low alcohol, 30% by volume, so that it may be taken at any time for benefits.

Recommended Dosage: 475 – 4,275 milligrams @ 1-3 times a day*
Male Silk Moth Dosage Equation:
The dosage of most tonics work by bodyweight and activity level and dietary factors. The amount of male silk moth taken is highly dependent on activity level and diet factors.
BW + AL + DF
Bodyweight (BW) is the overall weight measured by a bathroom or locker room scale.
Activity level (AL) is a relative unit based on the amount of work accomplished, stress-levels and fitness-intensity.
Diet factors (DF) are based on how much calories and food is taken in, such as protein, fat and carbohydrates.
Estimated Daily Dosage:
BW = 1 dropper per ~175 pounds bodyweight
AL = + 1-3 droppers - 1-2 low/medium, 2-3 medium/high
DF = + 1 dropper for every ~2000 kcal reached
Example #1: 145lb person (BW = 0 dropper) who is doing home fitness (AL = 2 droppers) and eats ~2000 kcals (DF = 1 droppers) would have a functional dosage of ~3 droppers daily divided into 1-3 doses across the day.
Example #1 is BW 0 + AL 2 + DF 1 = ~3 droppers
Example #2: 210lb person (BW = 1 dropper) who is going to the gym for weightlifting (AL = 3 dropper) and eats ~2500 kcals (DF = 1 droppers) would have a functional dosage of ~5 droppers daily divided into 1-3 doses across the day.
Example #2 is BW 1 + AL 3 + DF 1 = ~5 droppers
To find a functional dose, start with a minimum dose of 10 drops to 1 dropper and work up to a functional dose.* Many benefits of tonics come from consistent and continued use over a period of time.*
Male Silk Moth dropper:
- 60 1ml droppers in a 2oz (60ml) bottle
- 1ml dropper = ~1425 mgs male silk moth extract
Male Silk Moth drops:
- 30 drops in a 1ml dropper
- 1 drop = ~48 mgs male silk moth extract
Suggested Male Silk Moth Cycle:*
- Initial Phase = 3-30 days
- Long Term = 30-90
- Optional Cycle-off Period = 14-60 days
Continuous consumption of Male Silk Moth will yield increasing benefits and results over the time consumed; in other words, consistent daily consumption of Male Silk Moth at a functional dosage over the period of suggested time will increase health and wellness benefits.*
After an initial cycle Male Silk Moth may be continued on-and-off for long-term supplementation health benefits or traded-out for another tonic adaptogen superfood.*
How to Take
Benefits with tonics take time; taking enough consistently rewards health †
Take as desired: consume on a continuous basis to develop the natural tonic and adaptogenic benefits that build over time.* Some benefits are immediate and some results require consumption over several days and weeks to accomplish.* A good tonic cycle is 45-90 days of a tonic adaptogen which will generate lasting health changes.*
Shake gently: secure the lid and turn the bottle over back-and-forth 3-5 times to evenly distribute the tincture. Do not over-shake as the vigorous mixing of air with the extract will oxidize and damage many of the necessary constituents for required dosage and potency.
By mouth: hold the liquid under the tongue for 60-90 seconds and then swallow the rest of extract; doing so allows digestion to begin in the mouth and will take advantage of the activated multi-step extract so that many of the constituents will bypass digestion and enter the body through the mouth and throat.* Holding the extract also promotes better absorption and assimilation and elicits an immediate effect that is performance oriented.*
Mix with water: squirt the drops or entire droppers into 2-4 oz. of water that is under 120*F. Water that is cool to lukewarm temperature is best to preserve the volatile and fragile constituents from being damaged and denatured which will reduce the potency of the extract.* Sip slowly to allow absorption in the mouth and throat.* This method makes it easier to become accustomed to the extract and to take larger doses of several different tinctures at once in a tonic program.*
For maximum potency: regularly consume the tincture within a period of 45 days; after 45 days of continuous consumption the extract may begin to gradually lose potency requiring a larger dosage to achieve similar benefit.* A bottle will generally last 10-30 days depending on dosage and concurrent supplementation programming.
