Body Boost Vegan Tonic
Body Boost Vegan Tonic
Our raw 100% organic body tonic contains lots of powerful ingredients that will help give you a boost when you are feeling under par:
Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar with the mother; most germs can't survive in the acidic environment vinegar creates so a swig of this this when you feel the start of a sore throat could stop a cold in it’s tracks. It contains potassium, which thins mucus; and the acetic acid in it could prevent germ growth, which can contributes to nasal congestion.
Coconut Syrup; is a vegan sweetener and very very yummy.
Baobab powder; is a rich source of Vitamin C, which is thought to contribute to normal energy release and immune function.
Red Chilies; contain health benefiting an alkaloid compound in them, capsaicin, which gives them strong spicy pungent character. Early studies suggest that chilli’s have anti-bacterial, anti-carcinogenic and analgesic properties.
Garlic; has been used for years to fight off colds and flus.
Ginger; Gingerol the bioactive substance in fresh ginger, can help lower the risk of infection and it is thought that ginger extract can inhibit the growth of many different types of bacteria.
Horseradish; contains isothiocyanate and sinigrin, these components have been found to have antioxidant characteristics that can boost the strength of the immune system and stimulate the activity and production of white blood cells, the body’s main line of defence. The vitamin-C content of horseradish is also impressively high, which also can boost the immune system.
Onion; is so much more active in its raw state than when cooked, as it contains a variety of organic sulphur compounds, contained in a volatile oil, that provide the health benefits. These are partly destroyed by heat. Onions were used historically as a preventative medicine and were apparently eaten by Roman emperor Nero as a cure for colds.
Turmeric; contains compounds with medicinal properties. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
Take 5-20ml straight, with water, apple juice or tea (it goes really well with our capability tea and an extra spoon of raw honey if you like sweet tea).
Please be warned this is a fiery tonic and it may be too hot for you to have straight so try it first diluted.
We recommend you take this once a day or as often as needed.
