Have you ever heard of Red Ginseng Tea from Korea?
First of all, I am not being paid or compensated in any way for this post — the opinions are mine. As you know, if you’ve been reading my blog, we are currently hosting a Korean exchange student. When he arrived, he presented me with a box of KGC Red Ginseng tea for our family. I had never heard of it before that time. I decided to research it, and found out Korean Red Ginseng Tea can have all sorts of amazing health benefits including:
*Preventing colds and flu. Seriously, the tea somehow boosts your white blood cells, thereby destroying viruses and germs that enter your body. I have not gotten sick once since I started drinking Red Ginseng Tea regularly.
*Boosting energy levels and relieving anxiety. With 4 kids currently living in our house (and friends over frequently), stress relief is an added bonus of red ginseng tea!
*Promoting a healthy heart (by lowering your cholesterol; the harmful cholesterol that clogs your arteries).
*Eliminating free radicals that may cause cancer.
How often should you drink Red Ginseng tea? Well, I drink it once per day, usually at lunch time. The box says you can drink it three times per day, but I thought once per day still gave me some good results.
How much does it cost? I received my first box as a gift, but seeing as I do not live in Korea and have regular access to it, I am getting ready to purchase my second box of Red Ginseng tea on Amazon.com. I am going to stick with the same brand I received originally, but there are some cheaper brands available on Amazon as well.
Another tip I discovered while researching Red Ginseng tea: Many health gurus say that you should drink it for 3 weeks, and then take a week off from drinking it, to enhance its benefits. That’s what I’ve been doing. I’m currently on my “off week”. Then I will go back to drinking Korean Red Ginseng tea for 3 more weeks.
What does it taste like? Well, it’s not very strong, in my opinion. I add some sweetener to it, so add what works for you (honey, maple syrup, sugar, Stevia are a few suggestions). The Korean Red Ginseng tea comes in packets. It actually dissolves in your cup (it’s granulated).
Please comment if you decide to try Korean Red Ginseng Tea, and share if it works for you.
