Herbal Benefits

Cinnamon

Ginger: Ginger is antiviral and anti-inflammatory; it also protects and stimulates the circulatory system. Ginger's anti-spasmodic and anti-emetic properties help to alleviate nausea, motion sickness and morning sickness. Ginger also appears to reduce cholesterol and improve lipid metabolism, thereby helping to decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes (Bode & Dong, 2011). Interestingly enough, Ginger has even been used to treat Radiation sickness;  compared to the leading drug for radiation sickness, Amifostine, the ginger compound was 150 times more powerful and had no side effects (Rao et al, 2011).

Calendula: May help cleanse the lymphatic system and improve circulation; keeping the lymphatic system clear is vital for a strong immune system. Calendula is anti-inflammatory, antifungal and antibacterial. Calendula may help promote wound healing and is very soothing to painful wounds. Calendula may help with eczema, acne, infections and protecting against sun damage.

Turmeric: The antioxidants in turmeric are believed to help neutralize inflammatory free radicals that can damage tissue and cause inflammation and pain. Pairing turmeric with black pepper has been found to enhance the bioavailability of the curcumin in turmeric by 2000%, which is why you will also find black pepper in our Alpenglow Elixir Mixer recipe. Curcumin has been studied extensively for its potential anticancer action, including its ability to inhibit cell growth and metastases. The consumption of turmeric is correlated epidemiologically with lower rates of cancer, including breast, prostate, lung, and colon cancers. Curcumin may also help protect against Alzheimer's disease, because it triggers a gene that codes antioxidant production which helps protect the brain from oxidative damage ( according to The George Mateljan Foundation).

Black Pepper: Black Pepper can promote appetite and support healthy digestion. Black Pepper can help to rejuvenate the respiratory system, counteracting congestion in the sinuses or lungs. Piperine, one of the main constituents in Black Pepper, has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

How do I make it?

Add 1 tablespoon of Elixir Mixer per 8 ounces of hot or cold liquid (we prefer raw milk or oat milk), and froth (with a hand frother), blend, whisk or shake (using a shaker bottle). Add sweetener if preferred, we recommend a small amount of raw local honey.
