Ailments and illnesses often manifest themselves as many different symptoms, hence Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioners usually combine medicinal herbs to address these manifestations simultaneously. One popular combination used since ancient times is Ginseng Chrysanthemum, a concoction containing American Ginseng and chrysanthemum flower-infused tea that helps alleviate respiratory problems, high blood pressure, and hyperthyroidism while cooling the body.
Benefits of American Ginseng
American Ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) is an energy and immunity booster used in TCM to treat fatigue and common infectious diseases like colds and flu, but did you know that it can also reduce the effects of some serious health conditions? Evidence from studies suggests that natural chemicals found in American ginseng called ginsenosides and polysaccharides help relieve the symptoms of type 2 diabetes, cancer, stress-related depression, erectile dysfunction and problems with the digestive system such as colon inflammation and gastric ulcer. In a 2020 study, it was also discovered that it can potentially strengthen working memory.
Benefits of Chrysanthemum Tea
On the other hand, chrysanthemum tea is known for promoting cardiovascular health, immunity, healthy skin, and metabolism with its vitamin, mineral and antioxidant content. It has also been long used to ease stress with its cooling, anti-hypertensive and anti-inflammatory properties.
A more recent study reveals that chrysanthemum tea also helps break down alcohol in the body, making it effective against hangover symptoms and more serious liver problems such as hepatitis and cirrhosis.
Chrysanthemum Tea is made by boiling a whole Chrysanthemum flower over hot water. Because of the many beneficial properties it naturally contains, it has long been considered as a healing drink.
Heng Foh Tong Medical Hall’s Ginseng Chrysanthemum Herbal Tea
While Ginseng Chrysanthemum is a common drink prepared across many Asian nations, what makes ours special is that it is a product of passion. Ever since Madame Chai was married to the Lee Family in the 1960s, she has developed a deeper love and knowledge for Traditional Chinese Medicine and a better understanding of how each herb can improve one’s health. Eventually, like every other TCM grandma, she enjoyed brewing tea for her loved ones, especially her neighbours and six grandchildren. Ever since that time, she has been using fresh, authentic, top-quality herbs for her blends — only the best will do for her version of brewed teas!
Today, decades after the original blend was made, Heng Foh Tong Medical Hall improves upon Madam Chai’s creation with the help of mature food technology deployed by a PhD and supported by Enterprise Singapore. It contains natural plant-based herbs and little to no sugar yet still retaining the drink’s authentic flavour. Compared to the normal five-day refrigerated shelf life of Ginseng Chrysanthemum tea, our new generation herbal tea can last for up to 6 months even without preservatives and ambient storage.
Besides Chrysanthemum Flower and American Ginseng Root, Heng Foh Tong Medical Hall’s Ginseng Chrysanthemum drink is also made out of three other powerful ingredients: Gan cao or licorice, which is effective in expelling phlegm and toxins, moistening the lungs, stopping cough and relieving spasms; Ophiopogon japonicus or evergreen, which works against anxiety, fatigue, and insomnia; and less than 5% of Yellow Rock Sugar, which gives off a refreshing sensation that can treat common colds and cough.
Now, you can enjoy a genuinely healthy and rejuvenating drink just like your grandma used to make at home— anytime, anywhere!
