Health Tonic Benefits
- Naturally energizing -
Ginger and Ginseng work well together as a natural energy enhancer. Ginseng is traditionally known for increasing energy, longevity and vitality, while ginger is a natural invigorator that stimulates blood-flow, helping you to overcome feelings of fatigue and sluggishness.
- Stamina Boost -
As an Adaptogen herb, ginseng helps you to adapt to the demands and stresses of life. It protects and strengthens the adrenal glands, enabling you to cope with stress better. The result: more stamina – less stress.
- Aids Digestion -
Did you know that so much of your energy is spent on digestion? That’s why we can experience an ‘afternoon-slump’! Ginger promotes the release of extra digestive enzymes from the pancreas, aiding the absorption of nutrients from food . Digestion happens with more ease, while your energy is conserved for important brain-work!
- Anti-Inflammatory -
As we spend most of our day slumped in front of a PC, it’s easy to develop muscle discomfort. Thanks to ginger’s anti-inflammatory properties, Ginger Health Tonic is great for relieving muscle and joint pain caused by poor PC-posture! Ginger’s anti-inflammatory action is so evident it’s no surprise that it has been used to heal rheumatism in Auyurvedic medicine for over 2000 years .
- Lowers Cholesterol -
Researchers of a study published in the journal "Food and Function" in 2013 found that ginger activates an enzyme that increases your body's use of cholesterol. In a double blind controlled clinical study of ginger, where patients consumed ginger for 45 days, it was found that ginger had a significant cholesterol-lowering effect compared to a placebo .
