Natural Energy for a Busy Life
The Perfect Pick-me-up: And no it’s not Tiramisu
UP&GO from The Wise Herb Company has a variety of traditional Herbs & Spices that can help to keep you active during your busy lifestyles. We designed the recipe with the help of Ayurvedic doctors and the herbs & spices in this tasty infusion mix are now being shown to have beneficial health maintaining properties.
Apart from Green Tea, which we know is able to help with fat metabolism and is packed with antioxidants, UP&GO has herbs such as Pennywort, Cinnamon, and Hibiscus which can help with natural energy boost.
Liquorice: enhance fat breakdown and digestion. Anti-obestiy effect has been reported by several scientific groups. Results showed that glabridin, a compound found in Liquorice, significantly inhibits fatigue.
Ginger: augments the digestion of fat in an animal model system.
Hibiscus: has blood lipid lowering effect and can help to modulate blood sugar levels. Ginger is also implicated in the reduction of inflammation and pain and can reduce the day-to-day progression of muscle pain.
Lemongrass: exerts an anti-inflammatory action
The UP&GO herbs & spices also help to reinforce Immunity!
Pennywort (Centella asiatica): centella can positively effect both non-specific cellular and humoral immune responses. The immunomodulatory activity of extracts of C. asiatica was also significant.
Cinnamon: has been reported to improve immune function against microorganisms. Results suggest that Cinnamon Extracts can affect immune responses by regulating anti- and proinflammatory and GLUT gene expression.
So when Can I drink it?
- When you need a boost of energy – ideal for mornings and any time you need a “pick-me-up”.
- Before work and before exercise are also ideal moments when you may need a sustained help with energy.
- If you don’t like coffee or for medical reasons you are looking for an alternative this may be a good drink to consume.
- In the winter when you need help with keeping warm or natural immunity reinforcement.
