This super-potent Alchemical liquid extract blend is a spicy formula which may soothe inflammation and aims to support strong immune function to benefit you all year-round. The ingredients in this blend are formulated with a small amount of organic grape alcohol for preservation and our Bio-Active Marri Honey, crafted in Western Australia. This combination of ancient Ayurvedic ingredients have been vortexed together to create the most potent elixir available.
The first ingredient that presents itself in this "No-Itis" blend is turmeric, known for its immune-fortifying properties and long history of use dating centuries back; this ingredient is the prominent flavor in the blend and tastes wonderful in sparkling water to create an immunity potion. Studies show its wide-range of benefits as such: “to target multiple signaling molecules while also demonstrating activity at the cellular level, which has helped to support its multiple health benefits. It has been shown to benefit inflammatory conditions, metabolic syndrome, pain and to help in the management of inflammatory and degenerative eye conditions. In addition, it has been shown to benefit the kidneys. While there appears to be countless therapeutic benefits to curcumin supplementation, most of these benefits are due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects (1).” Turmeric contains this active compound, curcumin and research has shown that “its bioavailability can increase around 2000% when combined with pepper (1).”
This activated combination alongside the long-used herb, Guduchi, creates an even more potent elixir. Guduchi, a native shrub to India and in Sanskrit meaning "imperishable" is true to its name— the story goes back to the ancient myth, when the gods churned the primordial ocean and an ambrosial nectar was created that would grant immortality to any who consumed it, making them “imperishable.” Often used to treat the common cold to various skin conditions, this herb is a wonderful addition to our fiery blend which may help to defend and protect our immunity and vitality all year-round. The final two ingredients in this blend are ginger and bitter orange, also known as Bengal quince, both may support our immune function, congestion and digestive health.
