Licorice root (Glycyrrhiza glabra) is a flavorful, sweet herb that has been used for thousands of years and is still one of the most widely used herbs in all herbal systems. Licorice has been used traditionally to support the skin and the liver. It also is thought by herbalists to help soothe indigestion and the throat.
Ginger Root, the underground stem, or rhizome, of the plant Zingiber officinale, has been used in many herbal traditions since ancient times. In Ayurveda, ginger is known as the wonder herb, and it's no wonder, since Ayurveda uses ginger for a wide variety of conditions, including supporting digestion. Historically, ginger root was one of the most respected herbs for supporting joint health. Ginger has also been traditionally used to support healthy peripheral circulation, so it can help warm up cold hands and feet, and will also promote sweating when that is needed.

Astragalus Root, or milk vetch root, is considered a superior herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), where it is known as Huang Qi. A member of the legume family, Chinese families regularly add astragalus to the family stewpot. Japanese herbalists use astragalus, which they call "ogi," to support a variety of functions, including energy, digestion and elimination. Unlike many Chinese herbs, astragalus is surprisingly tasty as a tea, with a velvety texture and a sweet, buttery taste.
Eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus) is often referred to as Siberian Ginseng. It is not a true ginseng, but a cousin of Asian ginseng. It has gained that nickname due to the fact that Siberian natives use it as a broad spectrum health enhancer, much the way ginseng is used. It has been traditionally used as a long-term stamina promoting herb.
