JiViSa's Mountain Blend is a mixture of herbs and spices that helps to relax and strengthen the digestive system. Its combination of anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic herbs and spices soothes the intestine and can help to alleviate digestion-related issues. The blend contains fennel seeds, milk thistle, ginger, star anise, cinnamon, peppermint, and liquorice. In addition to improving digestion, this blend also has a variety of other benefits, including reducing PMS cramps, increasing milk supply in breastfeeding women, protecting against bone loss, improving liver health, preventing age-related decline in brain function, and calming nausea.
Now, let’s go a little deep into each of the ingredients:
Fennel seeds are a nutritious food with a range of health benefits. They are high in essential vitamins and minerals like vitamin C and A, as well as fiber, potassium, and calcium. Fennel seeds also contain polyphenols like rosmarinic acid and quercetin, which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. In addition to these benefits, fennel seeds have been shown to have antibacterial properties and can be helpful in relieving constipation and reducing gas and bloating. They may also help to relax the muscles in the stomach and intestine, making them a useful food for digestive health.
Milk thistle is an herbal remedy derived from the milk thistle plant, also known as Silybum
Marianum. It is believed to protect the liver against damage, prevent age-related decline in brain function, and protect against bone loss. In addition, milk thistle has been shown to increase breast milk production in lactating women and may help to reduce acne lesions and control blood sugar levels. This versatile plant has been used for centuries as a natural treatment for a variety of health conditions.
Ginger is a root with numerous health benefits. It contains compounds called gingerols and shogaols, which stimulate various biological activities in the body. These compounds have an anti-obesity effect, helping food to digest faster and stimulating the body to speed-digested food through the colon. Research suggests that gingerols may also help to stabilize blood sugar levels, which is important for weight loss. In addition to its weight loss benefits, ginger may also help to regulate the stress hormone cortisol, improve bowel movements, reduce the risk of heart disease, boost the immune system, and improve brain function.
Star anise is a powerful source of bioactive compounds that contribute to good health. It is particularly rich in flavonoids and polyphenols, including linalool, quercetin, and anethole. These compounds, along with others like shikimic acid and gallic acid, are thought to contribute to the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties of star anise. This aromatic spice has been used in traditional medicine for centuries for its ability to support overall health and well-being.
Cinnamon is a spice with numerous health benefits, including its ability to aid in weight loss. It has been shown to reduce some of the negative effects of eating high-fat foods, and it can help to control blood glucose levels, which can ultimately lead to weight loss. Cinnamon may also help to control appetite and boost metabolism, making it a useful tool in weight management. In addition to its weight loss benefits, cinnamon may also help to improve digestion and overall gut health, providing relief from irritable bowel syndrome.
Peppermint is a popular herb that is known for its refreshing scent and various health benefits. It is commonly used to provide relief from gas, indigestion, and bloating, as well as relaxing the muscles of the digestive system. Peppermint has also been shown to improve blood flow and may be helpful in aiding weight loss. Additionally, peppermint has been shown to be effective at killing dental plaque-causing germs and easing PMS cramps.
Liquorice is a good source of antioxidants, which can help to protect the body from the damaging effects of free radicals. Its other benefits include easing heartburn, reducing inflammation, improving digestive health, relieving stress and anxiety, improving blood sugar levels, boosting weight loss and combating skin pigmentation.
