What it is:
root + spring's American Ginseng & Sea Coconut Herbal Soup Mix is a delicious, nourishing soup with natural cooling properties meant to be drank in the warm season. Featuring crunchy Sea Coconut (Coco de Mer) and American Ginseng, this special tonic is designed to naturally quench thirst, rehydrate and revitalize the body. Rather than the warming, drier energy of Asian Ginseng, American Ginseng is a cooler, moisturizing tonic. In Chinese medicine, American Ginseng is used to benefit the vital essence or Qi, generate fluids and nourish Yin, and relieve pathogenic fire. As the old saying goes, “American ginseng is the ideal alternative to Panax ginseng when people need it but can’t handle its warm nature”. This mix is particularly delicious when made with pork bones.

What else you need to know:
How can a hot soup alleviate summer heat? In traditional Chinese medicine, herbs are classified by not the temperature of the food or formula they are in, but by the effects they have on the body. American Ginseng has a highly praised therapeutic value for cooling the body temperature, and, when paired with Sea Coconut, can effectively replenish the body with hydration.

Sea Coconut (Hai Di Ye) - Sea coconut is a common ingredient in summer herbal soups because it nourishes the dry heat in the lungs so well. Originating in Seychelles and sometimes referred to as coco de mer, this coconut stays crunchy even if boiled for hours.
Dried Asian Pear (Ya Li) - The health benefits of Asian pears are plentiful. They can increase the body’s yin fluid and clear heat, cooling the body. These effects particularly relate to the lung and stomach organs and meridians.
Bitter Almonds (Bei Xing Ren) - These aren’t true almonds, but the kernels of several varieties of apricot that are grown specifically for their seeds. They cannot be eaten raw but are used specifically in Chinese medicine and, after boiled, release biochemicals that clear and nourish the lungs and intestines.
Sweet Almonds (Nan Xing Ren) - Sweet almonds are larger and functionally quite similar to the western almonds we commonly find in markets. Sweet almonds are tastier, and can help brighten and moisturize the skin and hair.
White Lotus Seeds (Lian Zi) - Containing L-isoaspartyl methyltransferase, an enzyme with anti-aging properties that helps to repair damaged proteins, white lotus seeds are also known for its anti-inflammatory properties. They help regulate the energy levels of the body, restore health, expel heat while being neutral in nature, calm nerves and strengthen the spleen and stomach.
Dried Goji Berries (Gou Ji Zi) - Helps boost the immune system and protect the body from high levels of inflammation since goji berries fight free radical damage.
Dried Honey Dates (Mut Cho) - Also known as golden-thread amber honey dates, they are larger and sweeter (as sweet as honey) than dried red dates and are high in iron and considered “cooling”.
