Wait…what’s a tonic?
Let’s say it’s an earthy, pungent party in the mouth compared to your conventional green juice. By now you’ve probably been hearing the buzzword ‘tonic’ lately, and maybe you find yourself a little confused with what the heck a tonic is and how it differs from juice. Listen here, my friend, you can rest assured that we will help you get the facts straight.

Cold-press juice 101
Cold-press juice is a thirst quenching bottle filled with vitamins, essential minerals, antioxidants, and natural antibiotics that have been mechanically extracted from fruit and vegetables. Within the process of extraction, cold-pressed juice is exposed to minimum heat and therefore minimizes oxidation so you can enjoy live nutrients for up to 96 hours after pressing.
But seriously… WTF is a tonic?
Tonics are medicinal in nature, and it’s what’s on the inside that counts for us- not just the taste. So don’t let its pungent taste scare you away.
By definition, a tonic is a “medicinal substance taken to give a feeling of vigor or well-being” by infusing various ingredients of whole roots, herbs, and medicinal elements to fortify the defense system, improve immunity, boost energy and one’s overall well-being. Tonics are root based concoctions that require heat and simmering in the process to activate the healing properties of its ingredients. Whether it’s joint pain, poor digestion, or a shoddy immune system, tonics serve to ail you.
Let’s take a look at the grandparents of all spices: turmeric and ginger.
Turmeric and ginger are the core active ingredients in tonics, such as Hong Kong’s leading tonic line, JAHMU Tonic. JAHMU Tonic works with heat in the brewing process to activate curcumin, an active ingredient that works as a powerful anti-inflammatory. This compound is what gives turmeric its yellow color, its pungent flavor, and its powerful therapeutic bene ts.
