Let’s explore more of the healing qualities within these alchemical ingredients.
Cinnamon is so much more than just a spice - it contains a wealth of medicinal (and anti-inflammatory) properties. It is high in antioxidants, can help balance blood sugar, and possesses anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties as well. Cinnamon is also a prebiotic, which means it promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria within the gut, nourishing digestion, slowing the breakdown of carbohydrates and helping to balance nutrients and improve efficiency within the intestinal tract.
Chicory is another prebiotic root, primarily composed of inulin, which stokes and enhances our digestive fire, while lowering overall inflammation. It is often chosen as a healthy alternative to coffee, with its similar, slightly nutty flavor profile, pairing perfectly in every cup of this delicious blend. Think of it as independence and empowerment for your intestinal tract, as it can support regularity and ease symptoms of constipation. It has also been shown to help regulate appetite and may support weight control and management.
Dandelion root is another inflammation-fighter, teeming with antioxidants. It may reduce cholesterol and blood pressure, while promoting weight loss and a healthy liver. Not surprisingly, it aids in digestion and nourishes digestive discomfort such as bloating and constipation. Also containing inulin, Dandelion root can help increase insulin sensitivity, promoting anti-diabetic qualities. It is also antioxidant-rich and nourishing for the liver.
Burdock root has been used for centuries in holistic medicine due to its high antioxidant profile, including quercetin, luteolin and phenolic acids. These antioxidants can help fight free radicals, prevent oxidative stress in the body, lower inflammation, prevent neurological diseases, while improving the immune system’s overall functioning. It’s great for reducing toxins from the blood and supporting skin issues. Surprisingly, it can also reduce the biofilm (colonies of bacteria) that contribute to oral plaque and cavities.
Maca is a malty, nutty root that can be used to enhance one’s fertility and sex drive. It contains vitamin C, copper and iron, and can balance mood by alleviating feelings of anxiety and depression. Adding to its overall energy-boosting qualities, it can also support longevity in athletic performance and promote sustained energy and athletic capacity. It may also improve brain and cognitive function, including memory and learning skills.
Eleuthero root, also referred to as “Sibering Ginseng” (though not related to traditional ginseng), can aid in everything from enhancing athletic performance and exercise to improving cognitive function and even provide healing from the common cold. It is beneficial for symptoms of menopause and osteoporosis, can give our memory and immune system a healthy boost and can increase energy and reduce fatigue while providing balanced nourishment.
