The Dr. Chao Herbal Drink Line released two all-natural, vegan beverages to enhance sexual health and combat premenstrual symptoms. The new Adult and Lady drinks have no sugar, artificial sweeteners or preservatives, glutens, and caffeine, do not require costly prescriptions and have health benefits derived from the recipes of a 19th-century Chinese herbalist. The "Adult Drink" is designed to increase sexual health by stimulating healthy production of sexual hormones and glands to combat sexual exhaustion, debility and chronic fatigue. The product includes the herbs Herba Epimedii (Horny Goat Weed), Cordyceps, Fructus Lycii (Wolfberry Fruit), Herba Cynomorii (Cynomorium Stem) and Fructus Momordicae (Grosvenor Momordica fruit). “‘Lady Drink,’ as its name implies, is designed specifically for females. This is as an anti-menstrual pain, anti-PMS, herbal detox beauty drink with antioxidants for removing impurities from women's internal systems,” Dr. Chao explains. “Lady Drink improves facial skin. It excretes toxic substances, has anti-aging benefits, promotes blood circulation and ovarian health, regulates the endocrine system, and enhances kidney and liver functions. It also helps reduce weight and alleviates acne.” Lady Drink is made with Herba Leonuri (Motherwort Herb), Saffron, aloe and Fructus Momordicae.
"The ‘Stress Reliever Drink' alleviates symptoms caused by stress, such as headaches, insomnia, irritability and back pain," Dr. Chao explained. "It has Cordyceps [caterpillar fungus], saffron, Fructus Momordicae [Grosvenor Momordica fruit], Rubus Suavissmus (Sweet Leaf Extract), and Lavender." According to Dr. Chao, a fourth drink named "21" will be on the market by the end of 2009 with a most practical function that could have come in handy in that popular 2009 comedy, "The Hangover": curing the effects of overdrinking. Down the road, U.S.P.F.B. plans to introduce herbal-based foods, such as "herbal ice cream, which will be as sweet as normal ice cream - but without sugar," Dr. Chao said. U.S.P.F.B. also intends to grow its own herbs here in the U.S.A. as well as to expand its distribution beyond the health and organic food stores, such as Whole Foods Market and Clarks Nutrition & Natural Foods Market, where the Dr. Chao Herbal Drinks are currently sold.
