This powerful herbal tonic was inspired and named by Ms Blue, celebrity blog talk host, spiritual counselor and community activist. Baratunde the Herbalist created this formula to provide her with the additional energy and heightened concentration needed to get her through her days and her nights on the show, but with a focus on exponentially boosting the immune system! Like our Ginseng Plus tonic, this formula is created with 6 powerful Ginsengs but specially harmonized to give you your daily quota of "calm energy".
The aronia berry, native to North America, is yet another "forgotten food" which was used as part of the daily diet of Native Americans because of its powerful health sustaining benefits and they believed it was a good aphrodisiac. Today, thanks to The Remembered Foods- Remembered, the aronia berry is finding its way into the lifestyle of those who seek alternative health and nutritional choices.
The aronia berry, also known as black chokeberry due to its deep purple, almost black pigmentation, arises from dense contents of phenolic phytochemicals, especially anthocyanins, which is also present in blackberries and cranberries...which we call pure melanin food. Its rich antioxidant content is beneficial as a dietary preventative for reducing the risk of many diseases. It has one of the highest concentrations of antioxidants and a very high ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value, often stated as the highest amongst fruits.
Research from the University of Maryland suggests that aronia berries may be great at fighting colon cancer in particular. Aronia berries also have a lot of flavonoids, which help the body in its fight against viruses, cancer-causing elements and different types of allergies. Preliminary results also show benefits for cardiovascular disease, chronic inflammation, gastric mucosal disorders (peptic ulcer), eye inflammation (uveitis),liver failure and urinary infection.
Aronia berries also contain useful minerals and vitamins, namely; Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B6 and Folic acid.
In the world of berries, antioxidant activity is a major factor in the endless position for "bragging rights" as top berry. Aronia has greater antioxidant activity than cranberry, blueberry, raspberries, strawberry, cherry, pomegranate and more modern imports such as acai, goji and mangosteen. Unlike strawberries and many other fruits, aronia is naturally pest-resistant and does not require the use of agricultural toxins. You can think of aronia as the King Kong of antioxidant berries. The early settlers gave it the name 'chokeberry' because it is too tart and sharp to be eaten raw, but are ideal for sauces or blended into jams, juices and smoothies. Baratunde the Herbalist has found a way to capture its properties into herbal food tonics.
The berries come naturally in three colors -- red, purple and black-purple. Aronia melanocarpa, the black-purple species is, has a much deeper purple color than blueberries, which are also North American natives. This is the darker melanated species that Forgotten Foods uses in their formulas.
The deep purple color of Aronia melanocarpa has attracted a lot of scientific attention. Purple fruits by virtue of their color are rich in the category of antioxidants known as anthocyanins. These pigments demonstrate potent cell-protective properties, and are also anti-inflammatory, helping to reduce systemic inflammation - a key factor in the development of chronic diseases.
These specific agents in aronia are anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-diabetic. They fight the formation of arterial plaque and lower serum cholesterol, and they protect the liver against a host of insults and toxins. In our ever-increasingly diabetic society, aronia's compounds help to lower blood sugar and improve the body's own natural production of insulin.
IN ADDITION TO ARONIA BERRY BLUE MAJIC FEATURES 6 HIGH GRADES OF SUPERIOR GINSENG
GINSENG is a chi (energy) tonic herb and ultimate adaptogenic. Adaptogenic herbs are plants with properties that exert a normalizing and adapting influence on the body, offering an enormous aspect of flexibility and resiliency. This unique connoisseur formulation improves physical strength and endurance, sports performance, mental performance, sharpens concentration, visual acuity, and libido enhancement. The 6 superior Ginsengs that make up our BLUE MAJIC formula are: Siberian Ginseng, Chang Bai Red Ginseng, Chang Bai White Ginseng, American Ginseng, Notoginseng and Prince Ginseng.
Siberian Ginseng is the dominant Ginseng in this formula. This very beneficial herb has developed a major reputation as a premier supplement for those who require additional physical and mental strength. It is routinely used by people with high stress lifestyles because it provides an abundance of both quick and long term energy that result in an improved ability to handle stress. It further results in the improvement of one's capacities, both physically and mentally. Siberian Ginseng has been used in China for over 2,000 years and is especially popular among athletes or physical workers who require substantial sources of adaptive energy and endurance.
Another major player in this powerful formula is the Wild Red Reishi Mushroom revered as one of the greatest tonic herbs on earth. Deep in antiquity, Reishi was routinely used by mountain hermits, monks, Taoist adepts and spiritual seekers throughout Asia because it was believed to help calm the mind, ease tension, strengthen the nerves, strengthen memory, sharpen concentration, improve focus, build will power and, as a result, help build wisdom. Reishi also has anti-stress activity and has a mild tranquilizing effect on the central nervous system. Reishi has the chemical constituents known as polysaccharides that play an important role in strengthening the body's overall immune functions.
