What is a Tonic Herb?
There are well over 5,000 thousand herbs documented for medicinal use. Many of these herbs have very specific medicinal applications and much guidance is required in their use. However, there are well under 100 herbs that are classified as a tonic. These herbs have the ability to help the body adapt to stress and modulate its own various systems. They supply unique phyto-nutrients not found in common foods that the body can use to carry out its highest potential for abundant health and adaptation to an ever changing world.
Is this a Multi-Vitamin?
We find that when getting into isolated and concentrated vitamin compounds, there is still so much to learn about their interaction in the human body. From years of experience in nutrition, we have found that focusing on nutrient dense whole foods is always a superior choice. So is this a multi vitamin? No, we think it's better.
When is it best to use?
Bag of tricks is full of adaptive tonic herbs and lacks caffeine or concentrated vitamin isolates that may over stimulate so it may be used anytime of the day. We suggest adding to smoothies, protein shakes, or hot beverages.
Can this help my workout?
Absolutely. Especially effective when taken 15-30 minutes prior to a workout. We use Red Sage Root (Salvia) Extract in this blend which is a natural nitric oxide booster. Nitric oxide is produced by the body to dilate blood vessels. This helps oxygen and nutrients reach your muscles for increased energy and stamina. The other adaptogens in this formula such as Ashwagandha, Cordyceps, and Shilajit, are highly revered for athletic stamina and strength. The unique carbohydrates supplied by mesquite pod and lucuma fruit keep blood sugar levels stable.

Lucuma- Lucuma is a subtropical low-glycemic fruit native to Chile and the Peruvian highlands. It is a highly prized flavor in Peru, where it is even more popular than chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry.

Mesquite- Mesquite pod meal is derived from the seedpods of the mesquite tree from Argentina and Peru. Mesquite has been consumed for centuries and remains virtually unchanged today.
