About the Blend 

As the name suggests, this is your afternoon escape. Whether you have a proper break to enjoy this slowly or are able to spare only a few fleeting seconds, you can be rest assured that magic is happening.

Astragalus and Codonopsis are fantastic on their own, but when put together, become a giant among Chinese tonic formulations in helping to build a robust immune system. When the body is exposed to
harmful pathogens,Organisms that cause disease such as bacteria, fungi, protozoa, worms, viruses, and infectious proteins called prions.
our white blood cells are activated to fight and eliminate the infection - Astragalus and Codonopsis promote the production of this army of immune cells. Subsequently, when the body is put on a defensive mode, it becomes “inflamed” and fatigued. These same roots help quell and manage inflammations to prevent further stresses on the body, thereby facilitating the body in its recovery process.
Other common stresses our body manages on a regular basis include toxins that are accumulated from the consumption of processed food and sugars, alcohol, medication, etc, that contributes to health issues such as
fatty liverA disease caused by the storage of extra fat in the liver.
disease. A healthy liver helps to neutralise and rid of these toxins effectively. Red Dates, Goji Berries and Snow Chrysanthemum, are high in antioxidants, with the former two particularly effective in reducing the impact of oxidative stress in the liver. Red dates, in particular, provide amino acids, a building block of protein, which the liver needs for its daily functioning. See your skin start to glow as the body detoxifies itself with the help of a healthy liver!


Through The Day also offers digestive aid through Codonopsis and Marigold. Codonopsis helps to improve gut health as it contains prebiotics that induces the growth and activity of beneficial gut microorganisms, while Marigold helps to support a healthy gastric lining by reducing acid secretions. A most ideal mid-afternoon treat!
