Nowadays, we can often meet people who love coffee, but can not accept it for various health reasons. The solution is extremely easy - we replace coffee with its natural substitute - an instant drink based on chicory and barley with added ginseng root and ginkgo biloba leaves.
Chicory as a coffee substitute
Soluble chicory of granules has a rich taste with bitter notes. The plant is known as a useful alternative to coffee without containing caffeine.
The chicory is particularly rich in inulin, which helps normalize blood sugar. Inulin has a beneficial effect on gastrointestinal activity, promotes bifidobacterial activity and prevents the growth of Salmonella and Escherichia coli bacteria and plays an important role in regulating the blood cholesterol content.
The soluble fiber contained in the plant improves digestion and metabolism.
A warm beverage of soluble chicory of granules is recommended in a state of constant fatigue (asthenia), to improve mental abilities and increase in concentration.
Ginkgo biloba is used in Chinese and Japanese traditional mecitins to treat respiratory problems such as asthma, bronchitis, cough, and memory loss, stomach ache, skin problems, dysentery, high blood pressure, anxiety, etc.
Ginseng is a powerful immune stimulant, tones and has a tonic effect. Ginseng lowers blood sugar and cholesterol, thus reducing the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. It has an antiviral effect by neutralizing herpes viruses and reduces the virulence of hepatitis viruses and the AIDS virus.
Ginseng roots are also recommended for depression, reduced efficiency, irritability, reduced potency, to help recover from severe illness.
