Navigating which supplement is right for you is no easy task with such a plethora of choices touting different benefits. It can be hard to separate truth from fiction, especially if you are new to Traditional Chinese Medicine and other holistic approaches you are adding to your daily routine. Maybe you tried a few products in the past and they haven’t resulted in your desired outcome, which makes you hesitate to try anything new.
For those seeking a more holistic approach to wellness, they often try essential oils, diffusers, creams and lotions, and supplements to accomplish their desired wellness effect like de-stressing or feel more energized. If you are looking at incorporating some of these approaches in your life, it may be helpful to understand more about some of the most common ingredients, how they work and interact with each other to maximize the benefits.
By tapping into thousands of years of understanding, we will try to demystify some of the most common herbs we use in our products and how we approach sourcing to ensure you get the best in your body.
Make Natural Choices to Boost Energy
Many of us turn to a variety of synthetic supplements to stay alert and sustain energy, although some say they may do more harm than good. For example, sales of energy drinks increased 5,000% between 1994 and 2014. Millennials and Gen X are the biggest consumers of energy drinks in hopes the liquid elixir will help balance busy work schedules and daily life. Yet there may be a more natural approach to achieving the same results.
Instead of drinking a product formulated in a lab and loaded with sugar, caffeine and ingredients you cannot pronounce, why not trust natural remedies people have used for thousands of years?
Red ginseng is an adaptogen trusted for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine to help you stress less. Our Good Morning Sunshine™️ Coffee Pods are infused with organic red ginseng, an herb that comes from a plant native to the Changbai Mountains in Northeast Asia. It’s used to increase energy, stamina and some believe it helps boosts the immune system.*
Know Where Ingredients Come From
With so many choices in supplements, it is hard to know where the ingredients actually come from. At NuTraditions®, we take pride in only using responsibly sourced ingredients. The herbs in our products undergo extensive testing via multiple methods to ensure safety and efficacy. We work directly with those growing and processing the ingredients to ensure each product’s safety and efficacy. We know quality begins in the farmer’s field, so we take incredible care with sourcing every ingredient, every herb and have relationships with these farmers.
For instance, NuTraditions® helps reforest the hillsides in China’s beautiful Changbai Mountains, where our organic red ginseng flourishes in the ground. To boost the region’s biodiversity, we plant tens of thousands of trees of multiple varieties, including Larix gmelinii (Rupr.) Kuzen, Pinus koraiensis Sieb, and Picea koraiensis Nakai. These trees provide cover for the shade-loving red ginseng seed as it grows. Additionally, our coffee beans are single-origin from small-scale, organic and fair-trade farms situated in renowned coffee-growing regions in Central and South America.
When selecting the supplement that’s right for you, it’s important to have an understanding of where it comes from and how it is processed. Traditional Chinese Medicine is a trustworthy method, with thousands of years of testimonials and use. The next time you’re seeking products for energy, wellness or self-care, consider trying something natural and trusted for generations.
