Ginger Elixir Support for Diabetics: A Co-Founder's Story of the Brand

Looking for the best ginger detox support drink for a person with diabetes?

We always talk about ImmuneSchein Ginger Elixirs being created from the relationship that Corinna experienced with her grandfather as a child, and we are very grateful every day for the experience that this product has provided to the lives of our community members and customer base.

When the journey started for us with taking this product from a “saucepan” to larger batches for all to enjoy, Corinna and Jason were always committed to ensuring that the products their business created only utilized the purest ingredients and quality available. This meant only using 100% whole foods in their business.

The first batches of ImmuneSchein Ginger Elixir varied from what our customers have and experience today based partially on Jason, Corinna’s husband, being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2012.  When Jason’s diabetes was first diagnosed, he was found to have a 17+ A1C, which for doctors was considered a medical miracle that he was still functioning. The doctors would have expected that at about a 13 A1C, this would have left Jason with severe ketosis and, as many experience, an incoherent or unconscious state.

With the diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes, Corinna started to work with the recipe and approach to minimize the carbs and sugar content of the product. Corinna dedicated time going back through her studies attended some refresher herbal classes, conversed with family and “Asheville, NC Mountain People” for utilizing different extraction techniques, and then “lived” in the kitchen to ensure that the product could be made in a way that would allow Jason to take the product in many ways from drinks, foods, and sauces with the flexibility of day or night times too.

Ginger Elixir Comes to Life for Life

This ginger elixir creation from the kitchen and is now referred to as ImmuneSchein Ginger Elixir Classic allowed for the flexibility to make any recipe. People use the ginger elixir straight as ginger juice or ginger shot, add it to hot water for lemon ginger tea, add it to cold water to make a ginger lemonade, add it to sparkling water for a ginger ale, make salad dressings, marinades, mocktails, cocktails, etc. But Jason's most important aspect was how to remedy a “low blood sugar” when they occurred.

With the ginger elixir, Jason could steadily raise his blood sugars when low with only 3 to 4 ingredients that could be easily recognized and spelled, which was different than the sugar/glucose tablets the endocrinologist recommended. These sugar/glucose products' ingredients were overwhelming and concerning for Jason, but the relief of a different approach with ImmuneSchein ginger elixirs made this a non-issue.

Now that Jason was using the ImmuneSchein Classic ginger elixir to raise his sugars when needed and an overall general maintenance health regimen, Corinna took to researching and developing other herbs that could be infused into this “Classic” Ginger Elixir to help from an Ayurvedic, homeopathic or naturopathic with other people’s desires, choices and health approach.

Ginger Elixir for Recipes and Daily Use

With the ginger elixir, it was the goal to make different varieties of herbs that could ensure that no matter what the medical “day-to-day” general health maintenance situation, there would now be a product that had the whole food ingredients available in an easy-to-use form for providing a holistic approach even when traveling.

So, for the past 12+ years, Jason has been taking the ImmuneSchein Ginger Elixir in the morning as a “hot lemon,” which, with the 2 oz. Bottles have allowed him to continue the routine even when traveling through airports and customs.

ImmuneSchein’s ginger elixirs are in a very easy-to-take-anywhere and quick-to-use form. This has built consistency in results for Jason, and it is impossible to find him anywhere without these ginger elixirs near him.  He credits ImmuneSchein ginger elixir as a large portion of why he maintains his A1C near 6.3-6.5, which varies seasonally and based on seasonal activity or lack thereof.
