Korean Ginseng has been called the ‘elixir of life’ and has been used and revered for several thousand years throughout southeastern Asia. It is widely accepted both in clinical research studies and in tradition that Korean Ginseng has important health benefits from stimulating brain efficiency to fighting fatigue. It plays a role in protecting liver function, promoting age delaying effects, regulating blood sugar, stimulating recovery from anemia, strengthening the heart, controlling blood pressure and overall enhancing the body’s immune system. Korean Red Ginseng is a specially processed ginseng where only the six-year old root is used. This process of steaming and drying increases the beneficial saponins that makes Korean Red Ginseng so highly effective and long-lasting. more>>
Tea comes from the plant Camelia senensis a warm-weather evergreen. There are approximately 1,500 varieties of Tea divided into five key types: Black, Green, Semi-Green, White and Herbal or Tisanes such as Rooibos, Camomile or Liden.
Tea's health benefits are largely due to its high content of flavonoids—plant-derived compounds that are antioxidants. Green tea is the best food source of a group called catechins. In test tubes, catechins are more powerful than vitamins C and E in halting oxidative damage to cells and appear to have other disease-fighting properties. Studies have found an association between consuming green tea and a reduced risk for several cancers, including, skin, breast, lung, colon, oesophageal, and bladder.
Additional benefits for regular consumers of green and black teas include a reduced risk for heart disease. The antioxidants in green, black, and oolong teas can help block the oxidation of LDL (bad) cholesterol, increase HDL (good) cholesterol and improve artery function. A Chinese study published recently in the Archives of Internal Medicine showed a 46%-65% reduction in hypertension risk in regular consumers of oolong or green tea, compared to non-consumers of tea. more>>
