OUR TCM DOCTOR EXPLAINS THE BENEFITS OF THE CREATURES OF THE NIGHT BOX
Our Sex Tea explained by Dr. Nat Kringoudis:
From a Chinese Medicine perspective we focus a lot on the energy of the kidneys to support good hormone balance. Your hormones are responsible for sending off the signals from your senses in response to your surroundings. Many of the ingredients in Sex Tea directly work on the kidneys to help you put the spring back in your step. Yi Zhi Jian does just this – it benefits the kidneys, to help ‘zip’ up any issues down there, like a zipper on your jeans! Think incontinence or premature ejaculation – because these symptoms from a TCM standpoint tell us that the kidney energy is weak. And with weak kidney energy comes poor libido.
There are several essential elements in Energy Tea that allow it to revitalise your body. We'll let Dr Nat TCM explain.
Straight up, ginseng, both the flowers and root are known as powerful energy boosters. But did you know that these busting beauties are actually ‘adaptogens’ meaning that they ‘adapt’ to exactly what your body needs? If things are a little on the low and sluggish, adaptogens get in there and shake things up. Also, if you’re firing on overdrive (in a not so good way) they help to calm things back down to the land of the living. This is great news for your hormones.
According to Dr Nat TCM, Hangover Tea is a unique blend of Chinese Herbs specifically formulated to nurse you back to feeling fabulous. This blend has been created to encapsulate the benefits of treating both the root cause of a hangover as well as its horrible symptoms.
The winning ingredient in the formulation is a herb called Pu Going Yin. It’s wildly loved for its ability to go work on the liver to cleanse, detoxify and help to flush out toxins via the urine. Because it also helps to cool the body it’s useful to treat headaches too.
Happy Tea explained by our ambassador, Dr. Nat Kringoudis;
Barbary Wolfberry Fruit or Go Qi Zi as it is known in China, is a very effective little berry that helps to cleanse and tone the blood. For this reason it helps to awaken the body and the senses leaving you feeling fabulous. It also helps that it’s a little package full of antioxidants – the very things that help to clean up the damage that stress leaves behind.
Happy Tea also contains another favourite Chinese fruit of mine – Shan Zha or Hawthorn Fruit. These little delicious apple-like fruits are great for digestion. They help to move any stagnated or accumulated food through the digestive tract and have a very calming effect on the gut in general. Shan Zha can be used to calm down a sensitive stomach or and help with digestive issues. It’s very gentle, safe and tastes delicious!
While both Chrysanthemum and Rose Flower both have an extremely calming effect on the body.
