shiitake, garlic, lemon peel, rosemary
:: anti-microbial, inflammation-taming, immune support, cardiovascular health, remembrance ::
This well-rounded + savory blend truly enhances any recipe and reminds you to savour your food. Truly an epitomizing concoction of the “food as medicine” tradition, this is an invitation to transform your kitchen into an apothecary. Shiitake mushroom both adds a delicious umami flavor to recipes and supports the immune system, including that of the gut! Shiitake is protein-rich, containing all 8 essential amino acids, are anti-inflammatory, and adaptogenic, helping our bodies to cope with stress. Additionally, they are a great source of B vitamins, nourishing our adrenals and increasing sustained reserves of energy. They have also been proven to hold anti-tumor properties, regulate cholesterol + blood pressure, and support kidney + liver function. Garlic is a strong anti-bacterial, supports heart health, boosts immunity, and is rich in antioxidants that protects cells. Lemon peel contains 5-10 times the amount of vitamins found in lemon juice, including vitamins C + A, calcium, folate + magnesium. Like shiitake and garlic, lemon peel also improves bone health, balances cholesterol, enhances immunity and help treats oxidative stress due to high antioxidant contents. Rosemary for remembrance, as they say! This common herb enhances cognitive function and memory, helps ease headaches - including migraines, and adds to the cardiovascular support of this blend by improving heart-specific circulation.
