As summer comes to an end we’re starting to brace for the cold season, thinking about ways to give our immune system a little boost ahead of Autumn and Winter. This is the time of the year when most people go browsing on the shelves of health stores looking for products that will help them get healthier and stronger. This month we want to talk about a very powerful natural remedy, which is so strong that it has to be taken with caution; we’re big fans of Ginseng and have included this root in one of our blends - called Iron Brew for a reason ;)
Ginseng has been used in Chinese medicine for over five thousand years. Originally believed to have rejuvenating properties, it has gained popularity in other Asian and Western countries after several studies have confirmed the numerous health benefits of the medicinal root.
One of the most widely recognised properties of Ginseng is its anti-inflammatory effects; this can help treat a number of conditions related to high stress levels, lack of sleep, or common viruses and flu that are hard to kick with conventional medicines. The active ingredients can also reduce stress levels and boost the immune system in a natural way.
Ginseng is a powerful stimulant. Getting the dose right is very important, as a high concentration of the root can cause nervousness, headaches or dizziness. In the right amount it provides an energy boost, lowering blood sugar and cholesterol levels. We recommend not consuming it in the evening, whereas it's the ideal pick me up power-booster to start your day, making us more alert and mindful.
With this in mind we have created our Iron Brew blend, which is suitable even by those sensitive to caffeine. Stock up now in ur store ;)
