Product Deep Dive

South African Rooibos

Rooibos is derived from a South African shrub not containing traditional tea leaves or, consequently, any caffeine. It contains powerful antioxidants that protect cell membranes and has been shown to significantly decrease inflammation, easing tension, especially around the stomach. A full-bodied post-performance indulgence.

Ashwagandha

Originating from India, Ashwagandha has been used for centuries in Ayurveda medicine. The herb, also known as “winter cherry”, is used to fight inflammation, stress and anxiety.

Tulsi

Referred to as “Holy Basil” and grown in the South-East Asian tropics, Tulsi is known to reduce stress and enhance the immune system.

Ginkgo Biloba

Ginkgo Biloba, native to China, is a well known anti-inflammatory.

Valerian

Valerian root is a well known relaxant associated with the reduction of anxiety and stress.
