Head this way for a feel-good energy boost that tastes good, fits in your bag (or even pocket) and doesn’t give you the caffeine jitters…
We can’t always clock in a full eight hours of sleep when life gets hectic and relying on five cups of coffee a day to stay awake isn’t sustainable. So what’s a busy urbanite to do when you’re running low on energy? A dose of Korean Red Ginseng might just be nature’s answer to your sleep deprived woes.
And of course, we want only the best. We’re talking about the world’s number one Korean Red Ginseng brand, Cheong Kwan Jang. The name is backed by 120 years of history, plus a stellar brand ambassador in the form of famous Korean actor Lee Min Ho.
Your daily energy boost, minus the jitters
Envious of anyone who seems to be in tip-top condition all day long? Maybe they’re overdosing on coffee, or perhaps they’ve got some Korean Red Ginseng stashed away in their bags. The powerful herb is believed to strengthen immunity, enhance memory and concentration, and revitalise the body as a fatigue-reliever. We love that it’s also got antioxidant effects, which gives skin a healthy boost, and it helps with blood circulation – a godsend for anyone who experiences cold hands and feet all the time.
Give it a go: The KRG Extract Everytime Balance is a sweet way to have your ginseng boost, featuring the additional ingredients of licorice extract, ginger syrup extract and propolis for a more flavoursome mix.
Or have your ginseng straight up with the KRG Extract Everytime. This comes in a handy sachet that you can slot into your bag for a quick pick-me-up throughout the day. We reckon this natural supplement may very well become your preferred way to counter that post-lunch food coma before tackling those afternoon meetings and deadlines.
Power up with aronia berry and pomegranate
When you’re curled up in bed with period cramps or feeling annoyed by the latest wave of acne that has magically appeared on your skin, eating healthy can feel like just another tedious task on your to-do list. At times like these, we suggest downing a sachet of Korean Red Ginseng with Pomegranate. It’ll take you less than a minute, and it’s the power combination that could help nurse you back to your fresh-faced, kick-arse self.
This rosy fruit might be a hassle to eat, but it’s filled with an abundance of vitamins and nutrients that your body will thank you for – including folic acid, zinc, potassium and vitamin K. Together with the red ginseng, this drink is said to ease period discomfort and soothe the symptoms of menopause with long-term use.
Looking for a dose of antioxidants? Get a shot of the good stuff by drinking the Korean Red Ginseng with Aronia.
We’re all for the acai berry craze, but here’s another berry that could knock acai off its antioxidant throne. Enter the aronia berry, which is touted as number one when it comes to its levels of anthocyanin (four times more than açai), an antioxidant that fights off free radicals, with anti-inflammatory and anti-aging benefits.
As the cherry (or berry) on top, this concoction tones down the bitterness of red ginseng with the addition of aronia, grape and pear juice. A quick energy and health boost that’s natural and sweet – it’s exactly what we all need, isn’t it?
