In your inflammation toddy you will find:
Fresh Ginger: is a powerful anti-inflammatory that also improves digestion, helps bring heat into the body, increases circulation, and helps reduce the effects of stress in the body.
Fresh Turmeric: is another powerful anti-inflammatory, and has a profound effect on certain types of pain and painful inflammatory conditions. It is extremely beneficial for joint pain and sluggish circulation, and also acts as both a powerful warming herb, and also a bitter. One of the compounds in turmeric, curcumin, is particularly beneficial to the body.
Burmannii Cinnamon: helps balance blood sugar, reduce inflammation, increase circulation and boost the immune system. It’s warming, soothing scent and flavor act both on the olfactory nerves, and the taste buds to help promote a calm and relaxed state of mind and body.
Black Pepper: aids digestion, is warming to the body and helps improve circulation, and helps the body in many other ways; but the primary reason it is used in this tonic is because of it’s amazing relationship with turmeric. Black pepper contains a compound called piperine, which enhances the absorption of curcumin, one of the most beneficial compounds found in turmeric by up to 2000%. Yep, you read that right, two thousand percent! In fact, the human digestive system struggles to absorb curcumin at all, or only in very small amounts without some help, and the compound piperine found in black pepper is one of the best catalysts for enhancing absorption, and thus giving you a lot more bang for your buck when it comes to turmeric.
Clove: helps support healthy liver function, helps improve digestion, stokes the “digestive fires” and improves the excretion of helpful digestive juices and enzymes, as well as helping to kill unwanted bacteria in the mouth and throat, and is extremely high in antioxidants.
Lemon Balm: helps reduce anxiety and stress levels in the body, helps promote a calm mind, improves cognitive abilities, can relieve nausea and heartburn, as well as helping to reduce insomnia and aid the body in entering deeper levels of sleep. It is also a powerful anti-viral.
Raw Infused Local Honey: is added both for flavor, and for it’s ability to help improve absorption in the digestive track of the medicinal constituents in the herbs. The raw honey used in this tonic was infused with ginger, cranberries, crab apples, and dandelion. Each of these fruits and herbs act to help absorption, or increase the effectiveness of the tonic overall.
Organic Vodka: alcohol extracts the medicinal compounds from the roots and herbs, as well as acting as a preservative.
As always, the ingredients in all of our teas and tonics are organic, or wildcrafted from the mountains of Idaho.
