Echinacea: Echinacea angustifolia root was first used as medicine by the Native Americans. Echinacea is an excellent immune stimulant; it's primary use and association. Echinacea is thought to be the best detoxifying agent in Western Herbalism. It is a natural antibiotic and counters the effects of many poisons. It cleanses the blood and lymph systems and catalyses the action of white blood cells. Actions include: antimicrobial, anti-allergenic, antiviral, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and diaphoretic.
Siberian Ginseng: Siberian Ginseng is rumoured to be the first ever herb to be termed an “adaptogen". In his “Great Catalogue of Medicinal Herbs” Li Shih Chen called Siberian Ginseng a superior herb. “Its action is to invigorate physical energy, regulate vigour, strengthen the skeleton and tendons, and increase one’s ambition.” Siberian ginseng helps to normalise the way in which the body responds to stress and acts to regulate the manufacture and secretions of the adrenal hormones. By far the biggest single use of Siberian ginseng is its ability to increase energy and enhance mental performance.
Ginger: Ginger is antispasmodic, antiseptic and carminative. Native to Southern China. Common medicinal uses include: to increase blood flow and circulation, alleviate nausea, lower blood pressure, has an overall calming effect, stimulates digestive enzymes.
