This is our first time reviewing Rosehive Superfoods Box and I can’t believe I’m just now finding out this box exists!  Not only does Rosehive provide you with an excellent selection of superfoods they also provide you with a recipe and their website is chalk-full of information on superfoods, why they are good for you and how they relate to your health.  You’re speaking my language Rosehive!

Here is a look at their box…

Rosehive Superfoods Box is partnering with Lauren Seiderman, Traditional Chinese Medicine Student at the Atlantic Institute of Oriental Medicine in Fort Lauderdale, Florida for June’s Box!  Lauren is a part of a team of healers at Integrative Medicine US.  This month’s theme is Food Therapy in Traditional Chinese Medicine!  Don’t forget to visit our blog to learn more about TCM and this month’s box!

Ginseng Tea

Korean Red Ginseng Tea with 6 year roots.  Ginseng, or in Chinese, Ren shen, is used for a very wide variety of issues.  Ginseng helps with anxiety, when used in small doses.  It boosts memory, aids in digestion, and warms whole body.

I had no idea Ginseng helped with anxiety.  How cool is that?  There is so much to learn about Chinese Medicine and sometimes I feel like the West is so behind!

Chia Seed Bar

These delicious Health Warrior Chia Bars are high in antioxidants and fiber, and may help to regulate blood sugar.

Sounds delicious!  Can’t wait to give this one a try.

Matcha

Although matcha green tea is typically consumed warm, it is actually considered cool in nature according to Traditional Chinese Medicine, matcha helps regulate body temperature, so when you’re hot during the summer, reach for some warm matcha green tea instead of an iced water.  It is also known in TCM to clear the mind, improve memory, increase energy, and uplift your mood.

Ok, I know that I’m so very late to the matcha train, but I think this little blurb just talked me into finally purchasing a ticket.  I love subscription boxes for items like this.  It finally gives you the kick in your butt you need to try something new!

Seaweed Snacks

In TCM seaweed is called Hai zao, it is packed with iodine, helping to regulate the thyroid gland.  Since it does have some sodium, it also promotes urination and reduces edema.

I do enjoy seaweed snacks, and they are so good for you!

Jackfruit

Jackfruit has been used for over 3,000 years in TCM.  There are medicinal uses for every part of the fruit, from the seeds, to the rind, but the meat is the most delicious.  Jackfruit is high in vitamin C which boosts immunity and prevents colds.  It also balances electrolytes in the body, is a good source of potassium, and prevents constipation.

Wow, I have never heard of jackfruit before!  I feel so silly that this is my introduction to it.  This might just become a new staple.

Chrysanthemum

In Mandarin, Ju hua is in the same family as Chamomile and has very similar calming effects on the body.  Ju hua is commonly prepared as a tea and benefits you when you’re sick, have a sore throat, or are running a fever.  It can also help if you are feeling dizzy or suffering from an eye disorder, such as blurred vision or dry eyes.

Chrysanthemum is amazing!  I had a friend bring me back dried chrysanthemum from China and I just loved it.  I’m so excited to have more at my disposal and will probably brew a cup just as soon as I’m finished typing this sentence!  The recipe Rosehive has provided instructs how to make proper tea!

Goji Berries

In TCM the energy of this fruit benefits the eyes; they’re great for blurred vision or dry eyes.  They also help if you have a sore back, weak knees or even early greying of the hair.  These tiny berries are said to promote blood flow and improve sexual performance

Rosehive also recommends in their tea recipe to add the goji berries to the tea!  I have never heard of that before.  Can’t wait to try it out.

Ginger Root Juice

Known as Shang Jiang, ginger is very popular in Chinese Medicine.  Use this when you’re cold or especially when its cold out.  This will warm you right up!  It is also good for nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, or if you have a cold with nasal congestion.

I love ginger!  When I was in England I would purchase what’s called a “Ginger Shot” From one of the local coffee chains.  It was so delicious!  I’ve seen nothing like that over here, so I’m over the moon that this was provided.

Rosehive Superfoods Box June 2017 – Final Thoughts

Over the moon with this box!  I love that more and more people are paying attention to superfoods and the fact that we now have boxes dedicated to bringing them right to your door says they just can’t be ignored.  Not only is the concept of this box amazing, but the curation was fantastic!  I love the box itself, it has so much detail and is so personal.  The items provided were fantastic and there was a really good amount of them!  I feel this box has a really great value to it and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to expand their horizons on superfoods, or for the super-food-maniac who just can’t get enough.
