Turmeric (curcuma longa) is orginally found in the forests of South and Southeast Asia. It's one of the key ingredients in many traditional Pakistani, Indian, Persian and Thai dishes and has incredible medicinal value as well. Turmeric helps with the regulation of inflammation and is used in the treatment of numerous inflammatory conditions for its anti-inflammatory effects.
Ginger has been widely used for centuries as a spice as well as an alternative medicine, especially in Eastern cultures. Ginger comes from the same family as Turmeric and is a potent aromatic herb and a good natural source of vitamin C, magnesium, potassium, copper, and manganese. Ginger's main bioactive ingredient, Gingerol, has been shown to neutralize harmful free radicals in the body and help support healthy inflammation levels in the body.
Vitamin C has an irreplaceable role in preventing and treating numerous illnesses in the body and as humans we can't actually produce Vitamin C on our own. We need to rely on diet and supplementation to make sure we maintain adequate levels. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps to boost immunity, collagen production, and also plays a large role in keeping our skin young and radiant. While most traditional forms of Vitamin C that include tablets, powders, or capsules go largely unabsorbed by the body, Liposomal Vitamin C is the most bioavailable form of Vitamin C on the market. It uses a revolutionary Liposomal Encapsulation Technology (LET) to deliver the Vitamin C nutrient directly to the cells that need it most with up to 6x the absorption levels of traditional forms. (Comparable to IV megadosing treatments). Moreover, it comes in an easy-to-use liquid format that is ideal for mixing into your favorite fruit juice, smoothie, or in this case, iced tea.
