Chinese fishermen have known for centuries that ginger could stave off motion sickness. Ancient medicine men considered ginger to be a gem for the heart as it was believed to stabilize heart functions. It was also believed to be a stimulant for digestive enzymes for proteins and fats thus increasing the metabolic heat.

Chinese medicine also used turmeric to treat liver ailments, congestion, and bleeding. It was also believed that turmeric and its principal active ingredient, curcumin, possessed numerous anticancer properties. Organic aromatic lemongrass, licorice root and orange peel make this tonic akin to a long awaited spa escape…
