We don’t like to play favorites — but there is something truly special about Rae’s Cafe Supreme. This light, creamy coffee is enhanced with two powerful ingredients to add extra oomph to your day — pure Ganoderma lucidum, plus the prized ancient root of Panax ginseng.
Once considered so valuable it was only available to the privileged elite, the history of ginseng dates back more than five thousand years. Discovered in the Manchuria mountains of northern China, it is thought that ginseng was initially used for food, since edible plants were a sought-after commodity in those days.
As mythical legend goes, the first “proof” of any medicinal purposes behind ginseng weren’t actually recorded until around three thousand years ago. With the first claims stating that ginseng gave power to the soul, while expelling evils, many people also had the belief that the roof of a ginseng plant looked similar to the shape of the human body, and thus imbued humans with a variety of different “healthy body” attributes.
Ginseng is believed to be beneficial in many ways, with qualities such as regulation of blood pressure, enhanced energy, improved circulation and much more. Ginseng is also thought to enhance the stimulating effects that coffee (or, more specifically the caffeine found in coffee) already has. Fans of ginseng-enhanced coffee also claim that it can help with the ability to concentrate and respond to stimulus in a faster, more accurate fashion.
Whatever the facts about ginseng — our Café Supreme is smooth, delicious, and adds a touch of prestige to your coffee experience every day.
