My daughter gave me a box of Red Ginseng Honey Jujube Tea which according to the food label came from Korea. It is not readable because it is written in Korean. :-(
I have a lot of good things about ginseng but not really sure what to believe. About jujube, I must admit I am totally ignorant. So I did some research:

Healing meant I needed to take care of myself better. And so I started taking FERN C - the non-acidic form of ascorbic acid - sodium ascorbate.
I dissolve it in half a glass of water and then drink the solution.
When I researched the internet about sodium ascorbate this was what I found.
"Sodium Ascorbate powder is a non-acidic form of Vitamin C. Vitamin C has intrinsic antiviral and antibacterial activity though its main effect is improvement in host resistance. Sodium Ascorbate (Vitamin C Powder) may be beneficial in: General immunity boosting, helping to ward off or prevent colds & flus, assisting the healing wounds, aiding the body in fighting infection, etc.
