Ginseng and maca root

Ginseng root and maca root: two real super foods!

The term super foods has been on everyone's lips for several years. It describes foods and especially natural products that are characterized by a particularly high proportion of minerals, trace elements, vitamins or secondary plant substances. Sometimes they also contain “good” fats or valuable antioxidants. Super foods are said to have positive effects on our well-being and health. Some have only recently gained attention, other super foods have been known as medicinal plants for centuries. We would like to introduce two particularly interesting representatives today: the ginseng root and the maca root .

Exciting facts about the ginseng root

Anyone who looks at a ginseng root up close will quickly notice that its shape is reminiscent of a human figure. But that is not the reason why it is a symbol of long life and health. After all, it has played an important role in traditional Asian healing teachings for centuries. The real secret of the ginseng root is the unique composition of its ingredients. For example, it contains ginsenosides, polysaccharides, phenolic acids and essential oils. All of these substances are responsible for the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of ginseng root . It is particularly recommended in folk medicine for, among other things, fatigue, poor concentration, chronic inflammatory diseases and respiratory diseases. It can also strengthen the immune system, stimulate metabolism and make you more resistant to stress. It is often claimed that ginseng root can increase potency. However, there is currently a lack of scientific evidence for this. By the way, pure, untreated ginseng roots are very limited, which makes them a real rarity.

And what can maca root do?

The maca plant has been cultivated and used as a medicinal and food plant for 2,000 years. It thrives in the high altitudes of the Peruvian Andes. Here, where the climatic conditions are extreme, it has been able to develop very robust and resilient roots over time. Maca root, for example, contains calcium and zinc: both minerals help strengthen bones and teeth. The mustard oil glycosides also contained have an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effect . Antioxidants, on the other hand, protect against harmful free radicals and can therefore prevent cell damage. And then there is the high potassium content, which can regulate our blood pressure and has a big impact on our heart health. The effect of maca root is also very impressive, especially since the high protein content can help with both building muscle and losing weight. It's not without reason that many athletes add maca root powder to their shakes or smoothies! And since maca root, like ginseng root, is said to have a positive influence on potency and libido, it is sometimes called “Andean ginseng”.

With the power of ginseng root: Ginseng Elixir from Dr. Jaglas

Super foods can not only be eaten, but also drunk. The ginseng root and the maca root are the two “stars” of the popular ginseng and maca ginseng elixirs from Dr. Jaglas . Both elixirs have their own story. A golfing friend of the Jagla family, for example, was so enthusiastic about the artichoke elixir that he expressed the wish some time ago that another strong root could be added to the range. No sooner said than done: After a careful, loving and complex development phase, the Golfers Ginseng Elixir was created, which of course contains the ginseng root . The premium herbal bitters with an alcohol content of 35 percent are made without sugar, colors or preservatives and delight with a full-bodied bouquet and a long finish. A bittersweet delight with more than 30 bitter herbs, flowers... and of course the ginseng root .

The Dr. Jaglas Maca Ginseng Elixir: The Maca root is in it!

A few years later, the weekly newspaper “DIE ZEIT” had the idea of ​​refining the ginseng elixir with maca root . Again, Dr. Jaglas experiments, researches and tests with heart, hand and mind, because a lot of sensitivity is required to produce a perfectly balanced herbal bitter. But the result was something to behold and tasted, and it didn't take long until the Maca Ginseng elixir was finally born. As the name suggests, it combines the ginseng root AND the maca root . With their sweet, nutty character, both roots go perfectly with the more than 30 monastery herbs contained in the artichoke elixir . And of course the Maca Ginseng Elixir is completely free of sugar, colors and preservatives!

Why you should definitely try the elixirs with ginseng root and maca root

Two herbal bitters, both indescribably delicious and with an unmistakable character. Ideal as a digestif or aperitif, neat or on ice. The Super Foods Ginseng Root and Maca Root give you an aura of something special and allow you to immerse yourself in completely new taste dimensions. Before or after a good meal, take a moment to allow one of the two elixirs to tickle your taste buds and make your tongue sing. Super foods , which have been valued for their properties for centuries, are still the crowning glory of a perfect treat today.

Bitterstoffe

bitter substances

Bitter substances: beneficial and valuable

Hildegard von Bingen already knew how important and beneficial bitter substances are for our bodies. The Benedictine nun, abbess and famous natural and medicinal scholar lived between 1098 and 1179 and wrote several works. In "Physica" she describes the healing powers of nature , and in "Causae et curae" she describes the origin and treatment of diseases. Hildegard von Bingen brought together the knowledge of plants and human diseases at the time with folk medicine. Her findings in the field of herbal medicine are still of inestimable value today.
So does the thesis: bitter is healthy. But why is that actually the case? What special properties do the bitter substances have and where are they found?

Bitter substances: definition and occurrence

  • Chemically speaking, bitter substances are compounds that have a bitter taste due to the activation of so-called G protein-coupled receptors. They are secondary plant substances and are found in many foods. Some examples:
  • Chicory, endive, rocket
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Grapefruit and pomelo
  • Black and green tea
  • artichokes
  • Walnuts
  • Chard and spinach
Mother Nature has arranged this very cleverly, because the bitter substances have always taken on an important task: the bitter taste is intended to protect the respective plants from predators. Many animals don't like the taste and prefer to turn to other food plants. However, it is not popular with everyone, so the bitter substances have simply been bred out of some vegetables and salads over time. For example, chicory, endive, radicchio and rocket taste only slightly bitter today.
This is exactly what turned out to be a mistake from a health perspective, because bitter substances not only protect the plants from damage, they also have great benefits for our health and well-being in several ways.
That is why it is now even recommended to take special nutritional supplements or medical preparations. These then contain, among other things , bitter herbs and bitter concentrates . However, everyone should decide this individually and, if possible, after consulting a doctor. Simply consuming bitter foods and drinks can often be enough to supply the body with the important bitter substances , because there are bitter herbs and plants that still contain the bitter substances naturally.

Bitter substances and their effects

The term bitter substances basically refers to all bitter substances that either come directly from nature or are produced synthetically. They can therefore have very different compositions. If they come into contact with the tongue when consumed, we usually feel the first effect ourselves. The bitter substances stimulate the production of saliva, but at the same time the formation of stomach acid, bile and pancreatic secretion is also stimulated. Increased intestinal movements then contribute to better and faster digestion. The intestinal flora is also supported by the bitter substances , which means that the intestinal walls remain supple. And since the majority of our immune system is located in the intestine, it can also be strengthened and stabilized in this way. The improved production of bile also makes fat digestion easier, which is perceived as beneficial after a heavy meal, for example, and can even help you lose weight, especially since bitter substances can also stop cravings for sweets. For example, if you drink herbal bitters after a sumptuous meal, you often no longer have any desire for a sweet dessert. The “bitter” flavor is the opposite of the sweet taste. Hildegard von Bingen was right back then, and to this day there are good reasons for regularly consuming bitter substances.
The positive influence on the intestines is so great that bitter substances are often recommended to relieve the symptoms of Crohn's disease.

Bitter herbs in herbal bitters from Dr. Jaglas

Of course, not all herbs we find in nature are bitter herbs . Strictly speaking, there are only a few herbs that contain bitter substances . But that's exactly what's in the good herbal bitters from Dr. Jaglas , which we offer you in several delicious variations. One of these valuable herbs is angelica, also known as angelica root. Angelica root has an antimicrobial effect and can help with bloating and flatulence as well as stomach and intestinal cramps. Or gentian: The bitter substances it contains counteract inflammation, increase the production of gastric juices and bile and can strengthen the body's defenses. The centaury herb has similar positive properties, while the citrus root is traditionally used to treat loss of appetite, upset stomachs and to improve digestion. The series could be continued even longer, and it is clear that bitter herbs are an integral part of natural medicine.

Which herbal bitters is your favorite?

Our Artichoke Elixir contains all the power of the artichoke, which in turn contains bitter substances such as cynaropicrin: a substance known to relieve flatulence and reduce feelings of fullness. In addition, the herbal bitters are enriched with centaury, gentian and citrus root, among others. The fine recipe is rounded off by, for example, ginger, lavender and camphor. Or do you prefer Golfer's Ginseng Elixir with the famous ginseng root and many bitter herbs? Enjoy the full-bodied taste pure or with ice cubes: an experience for all the senses! Our Maca Ginseng Elixir combines the ginseng root with the valuable maca root and more than 30 other bitter herbs, roots and flowers. You will love the bittersweet note with the long finish and the subtle nutty nuance, and your gastrointestinal tract will be happy too!
Mocktails

Mocktails

Mocktails: what are they actually?

It is not new that our language is constantly undergoing certain changes. Previously unknown neologisms prevail and remain, while other well-known ones are forgotten. A term that is still relatively new and that young people in particular use quite naturally is mocktail . We should definitely remember this word because it represents more than just a passing trend.

What is the difference between cocktail and mocktail?

Mocktail rhymes with cocktail . And in fact both terms are closely related: a mocktail is a non-alcoholic cocktail ! How did this unusual word creation actually come about? It's simple: The English verb "to mock" means "to pretend" or "to imitate". A mocktail imitates a classic, alcoholic cocktail, but does not contain any alcohol. The high-proof spirits are simply left out and replaced with high-quality, flavorful alternatives. A concept that is really well received by all age groups, because a healthy and responsible lifestyle is now very important in society.

After all, exuberant celebrations also work without alcohol , especially since a good mood and a happy mood do not depend on the so-called “revolutions”. In addition, a non-alcoholic cocktail does not exclude anyone: expectant and breastfeeding mothers, drivers, and even those people who avoid alcohol for personal reasons. Anyone can enjoy a mocktail without a guilty conscience, without regrets and without fear of possible consequences. It gives parties and social gatherings a completely carefree touch. Maybe that's exactly what's driving more and more people to order a mocktail rather than a cocktail . Maybe it's also the pure, unadulterated taste of the best flavors and recipes developed with love. One thing is certain: a non-alcoholic cocktail is worth more than just one try.

What makes a good mocktail?

Whether it's an alcoholic or non-alcoholic cocktail , a drink is only as good as its ingredients and the exact mixing ratio. Anyone who wants to make a mocktail needs just as much tact and expertise as, for example, a professional bartender. The Jagla family of pharmacists has both characteristics. In her traditional pharmacy, she has been producing exquisite recipes for decades, which have of course been continually developed and refined over time. The herbal science that has been passed down for generations, the German Pharmacopoeia and old textbooks serve as orientation and basis. These proven instruments and a keen sense of the wishes and needs of today's society ensure that a non-alcoholic cocktail from Dr. Jaglas doesn't miss anything. It is just as sparkling, sparkling and spirited as a classic cocktail with alcohol and brings fun to the glass. Of course, that doesn't mean that you have to give up alcoholic drinks completely and forever in the future. For example, you can offer a combination of cocktails and mocktails at your next party so that each guest can decide individually which drink they want. Or you can create a small supply of both for your own personal enjoyment and then spontaneously choose what you feel like. But many people stick with the mocktail long-term and with enthusiasm, because once you try it, it simply makes you want “more”!

The best mocktail recipes: This is how delicious a non-alcoholic cocktail is

A mocktail can be as irresistibly fruity and invigorating as the famous Italian limoncello or as seductive and bitter-sweet as the legendary Aperol. Just choose your favorite according to your mood! One of the most popular mocktail recipes is undoubtedly the San Limello, a non-alcoholic cocktail from Dr. Jaglas , which is reminiscent of the sunny south, Mediterranean joie de vivre and a never-ending summer. And best of all, it's prepared in no time and tastes simply heavenly! Simply fill a wine glass with around 40 milliliters of San Limello with 160 milliliters of non-alcoholic Prosecco or tonic water. Add a few ice cubes if you like and a little fresh mint as a garnish: you'll feel like you're in a quaint little bar right by the sea! A non-alcoholic cocktail like the San Limello goes particularly well with burrata, the delicious gourmet version of mozzarella, but can also be enjoyed with seafood and antipasti. Typically Italian!

Mocktail recipes like the tart hibiscus, on the other hand, harmonize particularly well with nuts, chocolate and mild goat cheese. Here, too, the preparation is wonderfully uncomplicated: Take another wine glass and add around 40 milliliters of Herber Hibiskus from Dr. Jaglas and add about 160 milliliters of tonic water. Alternatively, non-alcoholic sparkling wine is also very suitable. Half a lime gives the drink a pleasantly refreshing note. Now all you need are ice cubes and a bouquet of rosemary and/or a few fresh berries as a garnish. You will definitely love the fascinating hibiscus taste with the subtle orange note!
Mocktails are perfect for festivities, exuberant (summer) parties, barbecues and of course also for romantic hours for two. They are also extremely welcome at company events, as most companies view alcoholic drinks at company events critically. A non-alcoholic cocktail is then the perfect solution!

Refreshing summer drinks with alcohol

Of course, in addition to the trends mentioned, there are many more summer drinks that get us through the warm season easily and carefree. A timeless classic, for example, is the punch. Our grandparents already loved the mixed drink with white wine, fruit and other ingredients. Today, the punch has long had cult status and is not only prepared for the currently popular 70s retro parties, but also for summer birthday parties, family reunions and neighborhood parties. Most people also associate the aperitif with moody summer evenings. It is served before a meal in the beach restaurant, but is also an integral part of almost every garden party. Cocktails and long drinks are as much a part of summer as the beach is of the sea. Typical ingredients are coconut, melon, strawberry, pineapple, papaya and mango. Depending on the recipe, this is accompanied by spirits such as vodka, rum, tequila and gin. But be careful: Especially when temperatures are very high and/or when the air is humid, cocktails and long drinks can quickly go to your head, as their alcohol content is often considerable!

Alkohol und Sport

Alcohol and sports

Alcohol and sport: not a good combination!

Do you know a really successful and good professional athlete who regularly drinks hard drinks after training or competition? Definitely not, because alcohol and exercise don't mix. Although some athletes grab a glass of champagne or a bottle of beer during a victory celebration, ambitious athletes know very well that this should remain an exception. There are now also some great non-alcoholic alternatives that are just as great to toast to victory with!

What is alcohol and how is it absorbed by the body?

Alcohol is created through a biochemical process when bacteria or yeast ferment and break down sugar. If certain foods are added to this process, alcoholic drinks can be produced. For example, wine is made from grapes and beer is made from hops and malt. The alcohol content can be increased by distillation. Such drinks are then called spirits . This category includes, among others, schnapps, vodka, whiskey and cognac. On the other hand, flavors and sugar are added to a liqueur after distillation. Alcohol has a tradition going back thousands of years as a food, drink and intoxicant. We mainly absorb it through our stomach. After a few minutes it then reaches our brain via the bloodstream. There it then unfolds its infamous effect. After an hour at the latest it has spread throughout the body. Sometimes the effect occurs much earlier. For example, in people who drink alcohol very quickly or on an empty stomach. Or even when alcohol is consumed after training or sport.

Alcohol and sport: What effects can alcohol have on the training effect?

As already mentioned, alcohol and exercise make a very bad duo. Ultimately, the drinks make you tired and reduce your ability to react: no athlete can afford to do either, because then top performance is not possible. Fatigue means that training is only half-hearted and with much less power, and the reduced ability to react significantly increases the risk of injury. If you're unlucky, you'll injure yourself so badly that you'll have to take a long break from sports or have to give up sport completely. Ultimately, alcohol also inhibits muscle building because it slows down important metabolic processes. So if you repeatedly consume alcohol after training, you shouldn't be surprised if your muscle mass simply doesn't want to increase despite the greatest effort and maximum commitment. Since alcohol removes water from the body, the muscles are also less supplied with minerals and nutrients. In the worst case, this can lead to cardiac arrhythmias, which are often very dangerous. There are plenty of reasons, especially for athletes, to avoid alcohol. And the best thing: It's never too late to start giving up ! Then the muscle building works again.

How long should I not consume alcohol before sporting competitions?

Alcohol can have a negative impact on performance for up to 48 hours after consumption. So be sure to take a sufficiently long break from alcohol before your competition so that your body has enough time to break it down again. With the non-alcoholic drinks from Dr. You still don't have to miss out on the best enjoyment before exercising, especially since varieties like San Limello and Herbe Hibiscus really refresh and invigorate you. Alcohol can also impair recovery after strenuous training or a challenging competition, especially if consumed too early. After exercising, drink soft drinks to quench your thirst and eat foods high in carbohydrates and proteins. Otherwise the alcohol could have too strong an effect on your body because the organism is initially weakened by the enormous exertion. So give yourself and your body some time. Afterwards you can always toast your success with an alcoholic drink . If you follow these tips, alcohol and exercise can at least be combined to some extent. It is of course better to completely avoid alcohol before and after training as well as before and after competitions. Just try the non-alcoholic drinks from Dr. Jaglas : I'm sure you'll get a taste for it too, and then the incompatibility of alcohol and sport will no longer be an issue!

Alcohol and sports professionals: Good reasons to avoid alcohol

Of course, there are also professional athletes who occasionally drink alcohol. Some athletes probably treat themselves to a glass immediately before training or competition. For example, to compensate for nervousness and pressure. But the fact is that these athletes cannot perform as well as they would without alcohol . According to scientists and doctors, there are no professional athletes who regularly drink large amounts of alcohol and still perform first-class. Because alcohol and exercise just don't mix. Neither do muscle building and alcohol . Anyone who avoids hard liquor is doing something good for their health, reducing the risk of various illnesses and being able to enjoy their sporting success much more consciously.

Mindful drinking

Mindful drinking

Mindful drinking

In our society, it has long been considered good form to say “yes” to alcoholic drinks . Whether it was the after-work beer with colleagues, the girls' evening that no one could imagine without Prosecco, the summer barbecue party with plenty of "barley juice" or the social gathering at the Christmas market where mulled wine and strong Jagertee were naturally ordered, there was always alcohol included. This habit has now changed somewhat. A new drinking culture , which can be equated with a real lifestyle, is becoming more and more popular: Mindful Drinking .

What is Mindful Drinking?

Translated, the English/American term means “ mindful drinking ” or “ conscious drinking ”. So it's about deciding consciously every day in the appropriate situations whether it actually has to be an alcoholic drink again or whether today's drinking pleasure will be non-alcoholic . You don't have to say "yes" to every alcoholic drink you're offered: when eating together in a restaurant, at a birthday party or when your new colleague makes his debut in the office. You can, may and should say “no” and toast with a non-alcoholic drink . For the sake of your health, your well-being and your body.

As the term suggests, Mindful Drinking has its roots in Anglo-Saxon countries. A real " sober " or " sober" movement has even developed there, and no one is laughed at or even looked at askance if an alcoholic aperitif is refused before a meal. Quite the opposite: Mindful Drinking found and continues to find more and more followers among young people there. You no longer only belong to the community or clique when alcohol is consumed. Everyone can do without individually and consciously. And this decision is also fully accepted. Over time, the new drinking culture has spread to us. As mentioned, Mindful Drinking does not describe the complete abstinence from alcohol : the new zeitgeist is rather the “light version” of complete abstinence. That's exactly why mindful drinking isn't difficult for most people. At the weekend, the cocktail in the club or the herbal bitters after the Sunday roast, then during the week there are non-alcoholic versions that are at least as tasty: this is what mindful drinking could look like for you too.

Why should I try Mindful Drinking?

The advantages are clear: the risk of cardiovascular diseases decreases, the immune system becomes stronger, the complexion improves, and of course the liver is happy too. You won't have a hangover the next day either, and you won't be lying on the couch with a headache while the weather outside is perfect for great activities. Ultimately, mindful drinking also leads to maintaining control: over actions, but also over spoken words. If you still want to get behind the wheel, alcohol should be taboo for you anyway, but high-proof drinks in particular can loosen your tongue. People then say things - for example to their boss or to friends - that they later deeply regret and that can put them in embarrassing and precarious situations.

How do I get started with mindful drinking?

Take some time and write down when you consume alcohol, why, with whom and how much alcohol. This will give you a good overview of your drinking habits, which can sometimes even be downright frightening. Then question your drinking behavior. Many people are not even aware of the amounts that come together over the course of a week. Above all, the reasons why people turn to alcohol can be very different. For some, it's simply the supposed "peer pressure" that actually doesn't exist. Others simply love the taste of alcoholic beverages; they drink for fun, pleasure or because they want to relax. Sometimes the focus is simply on boredom or an attempt to suppress problems. Once you have realized the reasons for consuming alcohol, it is usually much easier to consciously abstain at least from time to time. After all, you can have a lot of fun without alcohol, celebrate or enjoy relaxing hours on the couch at home.

Are other countries further along than us when it comes to alcohol-free alternatives?

As already mentioned, mindful drinking has already become very popular, especially in the USA and Great Britain. But it is only a matter of time before more people consciously abstain and turn to alcohol-free alternatives on certain occasions. Word is slowly getting around that alcohol is not necessary to toast, relax and celebrate and that a non-alcoholic aperitif or cocktail can taste really delicious.

The alcohol-free alternatives from Dr. Jaglas is now conquering not only private party rooms and parties, but also company and commercial events. Mindful drinking is already a natural part of good etiquette. And the trend is contagious: Anyone who has not yet dared to refuse champagne or schnapps for their colleague's birthday for fear of being laughed at is taking an example from supporters and joining in. The community is getting bigger and bigger, because it's just good to go through life alcohol-free more often.

Limoncello

Limoncello

Limoncello: the delicious all-rounder from "Bella Italia"

Endless lemon groves covered by a bright blue, cloudless sky, magical villages with picturesque streets and just around the corner the sparkling sea: When we enjoy limoncello , we automatically feel like we have been transported to the “land where the lemons bloom”. Goethe had already fallen hopelessly into Italy. Did he already taste the seductive liqueur back then? Whatever the case, the Mediterranean specialty is undoubtedly one of the most popular spirits in the world today. In this article you will find out why, how you can enjoy the liqueur and why Limoncello is something very special even without alcohol.

What is limoncello?

The popular liqueur is produced precisely in the Italian regions that embody the famous "Dolce Vita" for us: along the paradisiacal Amalfi Coast, in the beautiful Gulf of Naples and on the sunny island of Sicily. Its extraordinary aroma and intoxicating scent are primarily due to the (of course untreated) lemon peels. Of course, only the best, fruitiest and most intensely flavored varieties are used!
The production involves several complex work steps. Particular care must be taken when peeling the lemons, as the white under the peel has no place in the liqueur. It would give it an undesirable bitter note. The lemons must therefore be peeled very thinly. Once this step is completed, the bowls are allowed to steep in 95 percent alcohol for about four weeks. Then add a mixture of sugar and warmed water. After another resting period, the liqueur is filtered. It now has an alcohol content of between 30 and 35 percent and is usually enjoyed ice cold. Either as a fruity aperitif or digestif before and after a meal or as a sparkling ingredient for creative cocktails. It is even ideal for cooking, baking and desserts! By the way: If you avoid hard liquor, you can also enjoy limoncello alcohol-free !

How do I prepare homemade limoncello?

There are several ways to make your own delicious lemon liqueur . However, for all variants you need around ten untreated organic lemons. Peel these carefully and thinly with a vegetable peeler so that nothing white remains. Now put the shells in a container and add, for example, 0.7 liters of grain. Leave the container in a cool place for at least two weeks. Shake occasionally. Then sieve and collect the liquid. Now boil 800 grams of sugar in around 300 milliliters of water and let the whole thing simmer for a maximum of ten minutes. Once the sugar has completely dissolved, the liquid must first cool down. Now the solution is mixed with 100 milliliters of lemon juice and the lemon schnapps made. Store in a cool place, let it rest for a while and then enjoy as you please! Alternatively, you can also use vodka or - this recipe is particularly close to the original - 95 percent alcohol. You can usually get it at the pharmacy. If you want to make limoncello yourself, you will need some time and patience because the liqueur must be able to brew well.

What else can you do with limoncello besides drinking it?

Did you know that you can also use the popular lemon liqueur very well in the kitchen? For example, for a wonderfully delicious limoncello tiramisu or a refreshing cream with cream cheese and cream yoghurt . It doesn't matter whether you make the limoncello yourself or use a finished product. Non-alcoholic limoncello is also a great option, especially if children and/or pregnant women snack on the dessert! But the fruity liqueur wouldn't be an all-rounder if it wasn't also suitable for baking. A cheesecake with limoncello, for example, is simply irresistible at any time of the year. Or try a juicy limoncello cake ! It instantly becomes a star on every coffee table and literally melts in your mouth. Of course, non-alcoholic limoncello can be a tasty alternative here too. Fine limoncello cookies can be on the Christmas plate. In addition to the liqueur, all you need is flour, sugar, butter, baking powder, an egg and a little lemon juice. The result is simply heavenly! That leaves the classic: limoncello sorbet . With a hint of mint and basil, it provides a wonderful kick of freshness on hot days. Extra tip: The sorbet becomes particularly sparkling if you add Prosecco to the limoncello!

Is there non-alcoholic limoncello?

Yes, limoncello can be alcohol-free! Dr. With San Limello, Jaglas offers you an alcohol-free alternative that doesn't have to hide behind the high-proof original in terms of taste and is very versatile. For example, you can prepare it as an aperitif , cocktail or “ spritz ” and experience unique taste moments that, just like the high-proof version, will take you mentally to “Bella Italia”. Even though limoncello is alcohol-free , it carries the fresh acidity of ripe lemons, which is complemented by lovely notes of honey and grapefruit. Non-alcoholic limoncello tickles the tongue and delights the palate. He represents the typical Italian “Dolce Vita” and radiates a carefree joy of life. Ideal for pregnant women and anyone who avoids alcohol for a variety of reasons!

And so that she can enjoy delicious drinks and cocktails just like her guests that evening, Dr. Jaglas not only offers high-quality spirits with alcohol , but also non-alcoholic aperitifs , which are in no way inferior in taste to their high-proof counterparts.

The party usually takes place in the last trimester of pregnancy. It doesn't matter whether it's right at the beginning of the third trimester or a few weeks before the expected due date. And even if women are mostly among themselves at the party, men are not explicitly excluded. If you like, you are welcome to invite the father-to-be, future uncle or godparent or your favorite work colleague.

Who organizes a baby shower party?

In the USA, the baby shower is traditionally organized by the expectant mother's best friends. You plan, do the errands, set the appointment and write the invitations. They also take care of the organization of the celebration, because the baby shower includes more than “just” a culinary pampering program. However, this approach is of course not set in stone. Family members often plan the party too. These can be the pregnant woman's siblings or sisters-in-law. It's not all that unusual for the expectant mother to be involved in the organization herself or even take over it completely. Maybe the pregnant woman's work colleagues would also like to give the pregnant woman an unforgettable baby shower ? The only important thing is that you agree on things in good time so that there are no overlaps. By the way: The invitations should ideally be sent out several weeks before the celebration. This means everyone has the opportunity to keep their appointment free.

What do you do at a baby shower party?

A baby shower takes place either in the afternoon or evening. The organizers often put together a small buffet that is lovingly decorated. Popular examples of appetizers and snacks include muffins, cake pops, cakes (for example with colorful chocolate lentils), Jell-O and mini meatballs. However, remember to avoid raw meat such as tartare and minced meat, as well as raw milk products, sushi, undercooked eggs and other foods that are unsuitable for pregnant women. In between, games provide fun and variety.


A few suggestions:
- Estimate the waist circumference of the expectant mother
- "Urban-Country-River" exclusively with baby categories (first names, toys, baby equipment, types of porridge, children's songs, etc.)
- Paint the pregnant woman's belly artistically
- "Who am I?" with old baby photos of the party guests
- Test porridge varieties via blind tasting
- Embellish white bibs or bodysuits with textile painting pens
- Determine the “wrapping world champion” on a doll

What drinks should be offered at a baby shower party?

A good mix of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks is common. Of course, hard liquor can also be avoided completely: after all, many guests will probably come with their own car. Luckily, there are now non-alcoholic alternatives to almost all popular drinks. Sparkling wine or Prosecco can be served at the reception or for a toast. As the celebration continues, liqueurs are well received. Here it can also be one or two special varieties, because after all, a baby shower doesn't take place every day.

The composition of apple and mallow from Dr. Jaglas is good. Or how about a fine gin? Meanwhile, the expectant mother enjoys a delicious San Limello : For example, the non-alcoholic alternative to Italian Limoncello can be used together with tonic and lime to create a fruity “ Limello Spritz ”. An ode to life (in the future) is also the alcohol-free Herbe Hibiscus , which impresses with subtle notes of bitter orange, elderberry, vanilla and rosemary. It can also be transformed into a seductive “ Hibiscus Spritz ” with tonic and lime. Extra tip: Both drinks are also perfect as a souvenir or gift idea for the expectant mother!

Grill Abend

Barbecue evening

The best tips for a successful barbecue evening

One of the highlights of the garden, terrace and balcony season is undoubtedly a carefree barbecue evening . What could be nicer than sizzling meat, fish or vegetables in a friendly atmosphere while enjoying good drinks? However, some planning is required to make the barbecue at home a successful experience.

What do you need for a perfect barbecue evening?

The biggest uncertainty factor is and remains the weather. Even if the weather forecast actually predicts sunshine and warm temperatures, a short shower or a small summer thunderstorm can never be ruled out. If the desired barbecue area is not covered, it may make sense to rent a pavilion or party tent from a local company. In the event of an emergency, at least the tables, chairs and decorations stay dry.
As far as culinary planning is concerned: 250 to 300 grams of meat per person are usually calculated. It doesn't always have to be classic sausages and steaks: How about, for example, hearty burger patties or pulled pork, a popular trend for the Dutch oven? They also offer various salads, grilled baguettes and several grilled sauces. The tempting offering is rounded off with snacks such as stick bread, stuffed mushrooms and potatoes with dip. Be sure to think of vegetarian or vegan alternatives ! Dessert creations such as grilled and baked fruit, apple crumble with ice cream and marshmallow skewers are ideal as a sweet finale.
When it comes to drinks, you should definitely have a mix of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks . Also remember to chill the drinks in good time!

What can I bring with me to a barbecue evening?

When your friends invite you to a barbecue evening , you understandably don't want to show up empty-handed. Side dishes that are based on the motto or theme of the evening are always a good idea. Ice cream is particularly popular on hot days. However, make sure that the frozen refreshment does not melt during transport and can be stored properly on site immediately. If you don't have the time or desire to make side dishes yourself, or if bringing ice cream with you is too difficult, for example because of the distance, "witty" guest gifts are a good idea.

A high-proof herbal bitters in a handy 50 milliliter bottle is sure to delight your hosts. Practical: With Dr. Jaglas you can get the high-quality elixirs, which were elaborately and lovingly produced according to medieval monastery pharmacy recipes , even in a clever pack of six. To enjoy yourself or if there are several invitations to a barbecue evening: the barbecue season lasts for several months!

And very important: don't forget to be in a good mood! So nothing stands in the way of a happy and exuberant barbecue evening!

What are the best drinks for a nice barbecue evening with friends?

Summer drinks that are not too heavy, enjoyed cool and invigorate the spirit are absolutely essential. Make sure you have something to suit every taste. By the way, the appropriate selection is not difficult at all, because the range from Dr. Jaglas is varied and versatile .
Popular alcoholic barbecue evening drinks include the Artichoke Elixir , the Maca Ginseng Elixir and the Golfers Ginseng Elixir . All three variants not only impress with their exquisite ingredients, but also with their magnificent taste experiences. Pregnant women, nursing mothers, responsible drivers and everyone else who doesn't drink alcohol for a variety of reasons don't have to miss out on the very best enjoyment. Simply surprise your friends with the non-alcoholic alternatives to Aperol and Limoncello : Herber Hibiskus and San Limello have a striking similarity in taste to their high-proof "siblings", but do not contain any alcohol at all. Many even find that there is no difference in taste. No wonder: with Dr. For Jaglas, first-class ingredients and innovative recipes are our top priority.
With this in mind: We wish you a wonderful and unforgettable barbecue evening!

Vegan drinks

Vegan drinks - the latest lifestyle trend

New trends are constantly emerging in our society. Some disappear after a short time, others develop into a permanent change of direction. There are currently several trends taking hold that we will all probably be hearing about for some time to come. And that's a good thing, because they revolve around our well-being and that of our fellow creatures, the animals. Today we will introduce some of them in more detail.

What are the current lifestyle trends?

Taking care of your own living conditions , developing an ecological awareness , taking responsibility for nature and animals: all of this has now become self-evident, even for young adults. This also includes a vegan lifestyle , which extends not only to diet and vegan drinks, but to all areas of our lives: for example, the selection of clothing and accessories. A vegan lifestyle helps solve environmental and climate problems, for example by causing fewer greenhouse gases. It is often ethically motivated because vegans do not want to be responsible for the killing, slaughter and exploitation of animals. Ultimately, it can also have a positive influence on your own health because it is intended to prevent various diseases such as diabetes or high blood pressure. The gluten-free diet has also developed into a lifestyle trend. And then there is the conscious avoidance of alcohol and sugar , which has so many positive effects that we are devoting a separate paragraph to it below. No question: eating sugar and alcohol-free is also trendy!

Alcohol-free, sugar-free, vegan: Why do more and more people want to avoid alcohol and sugar?

High blood pressure is now a widespread disease that can significantly shorten life expectancy. Alcohol causes levels to skyrocket and has a bad effect on the cardiovascular system. The same applies to sugar. Anyone who eats a diet high in sugar also increases high blood pressure. Fortunately, word has now gotten around about both, and it means that many people are not only vegan, but also alcohol-free and sugar-free , or at least limit their consumption. This works with simple means by choosing drinks that declare sugar-free, alcohol-free and vegan. But sugar should also be eliminated from your daily menu if possible.
Or let’s take our skin as another example. Alcohol and sugar make cell renewal more difficult. As a result, the skin can no longer regenerate as well, it ages faster and appears pale. The sugar can also cause impurities and inflammation. If you want an even, vital, fresh complexion, you should ideally live an alcohol-free, sugar-free and vegan lifestyle.
Another exciting aspect is the ability to concentrate. If you live a largely sugar-free and alcohol-free lifestyle, your insulin levels will remain stable, which has a positive effect on your mental performance. It is true that foods containing a lot of sugar initially cause a "high" caused by the happiness hormone dopamine, but the subsequent "low" follows very quickly. So we can say that people who live predominantly sugar-free, alcohol-free and/or vegan lives feel healthier , more productive and better . This awareness has already become firmly anchored in more and more minds: especially among young people . After all, there are countless options today to either live a vegan life or to lead an enjoyable life despite avoiding alcohol and sugar.

Are the current lifestyle trends reflected in Dr. Jaglas again?

Yes! With Dr. At Jaglas, all varieties are not only gluten-free , but also vegan . We decided to do this with complete conviction, and not just because it is currently “in”. In addition, our products are characterized by other properties that are in line with modern lifestyle trends . This is how the popular Dr. Jaglas Gin, for example, is sugar-free . Ideal for everyone who, on the one hand, doesn't want pure enjoyment, but on the other hand wants to do without sugar! With its full-bodied bouquet, lovingly selected ingredients and perfectly balanced body, it meets even the highest demands and delights glass after glass. Dr. Jaglas Gin is also vegan , lactose -free and gluten-free . It does not contain any artificial additives and contains herbs of the best medicinal quality .
Would you prefer your drink to be non-alcoholic? This is also the case with Dr. Jaglas no problem! With Herber Hibiscus and San Limello , we offer you two alternatives that even pregnant women can enjoy without worry and that taste on the same level as their high-proof "siblings" Aperol and Limoncello . Great for mixing with tonic, for example, and for refreshing summer drinks!

A lifestyle trend that we haven't listed yet is the increasing popularity of long-forgotten bitter herbs . They not only pamper the palate and taste buds, but can also have a variety of positive effects on our well-being. You will find the wonderful bitter herbs in the Dr. Jaglas Elixirs Artichoke , Golfers Ginseng and Maca Ginseng . Of course, all three products are sugar-free or sugar-free. With their long finish, they are ideal as a digestif, regardless of whether they are enjoyed neat or with ice cubes.

Non-alcoholic vs. 0.0%

Non-alcoholic vs. 0.0%

The current trend speaks for itself. More and more people are avoiding alcohol and taking advantage of alcohol-free products. Many people probably don't know that there is a difference between alcohol-free and 0.0% . However, some people have probably noticed that there are different names for supposedly alcohol-free products. We often stumble across the expressions “alcohol-free” and “0.0%”, especially when it comes to beer and champagne bottles. But what are the differences and how can you be sure that you have not consumed alcohol?

Does “alcohol-free” mean the same as “0.0”?

No, alcohol-free does not mean the same as 0.0%.
The difference can be explained briefly and succinctly because the origin lies in our German food law. This means that the terms alcohol-free and 0% cannot be used interchangeably. By law, a drink labeled “non-alcoholic” may contain a certain percentage of alcohol.
By law, drinks labeled alcohol-free do not have to be 100% alcohol-free. A residual alcohol level of up to 0.5% is permitted and does not have to be officially labeled by the manufacturer. However, manufacturers are now accommodating their customers and pointing out the residual alcohol content in the drinks.
Manufacturers who mark 0.0% on their products, on the other hand, guarantee a drink without alcohol that can be consumed by anyone without hesitation.

Is non-alcoholic beer suitable for pregnant women?

Drinking a non-alcoholic beer occasionally during pregnancy is not a bad thing at all. The residual alcohol in the beer is so low that pregnant women don't have to worry about drinking a single non-alcoholic beer . However, if you drink several bottles in a row, the alcohol content will be harmful to your baby as the alcohol content adds up.

Non-alcoholic beer vs. non-alcoholic long drink

The difference between non-alcoholic beer and a non-alcoholic long drink lies in the absolute quantity of the non-alcoholic drink. With a non-alcoholic beer, you usually drink an entire bottle or glass. The potential residual alcohol value of up to 0.5% is therefore contained in an amount of 0.3-0.5 liters. However, if you mix a non-alcoholic long drink, the residual alcohol content is often only limited to the 4 cl that is added to the mixed drink. The alcohol content in the non-alcoholic long drink is once again much lower in percentage terms than in a whole non-alcoholic beer.

Sober Bars: The spirit of a new time

Whether in the party capital Berlin, in the south of the country or in the far north, sober bars are also very trendy here. The younger generation in particular is increasingly giving up alcoholic beverages voluntarily and consciously.

The word has gotten around that a good aperitif doesn't have to be high-proof. While it used to be considered cool to consume as much alcohol as possible at parties, today the focus is on the so-called health trend, i.e. physical and mental health.

Dry January

Dry January - without alcohol and with enjoyment into the New Year

It is a tradition to make plans for the coming year at the turn of the year. Abstaining from alcohol is an obvious resolution . New Year's resolutions allow us to reflect on our habits.

The Dry January health campaign has become increasingly popular in recent years. This challenge is about more than just giving up alcohol. It is a month of self-reflection and the start of a more conscious life.

What is Dry January?

Originally, “ Dry January ” was a health campaign by the organization Alcohol Change in Great Britain. In 2014, the initiative to abstain from alcohol for a month to mark the New Year starts. The challenge became a sure-fire success on social media; in many countries it is now popular to simply spend January dry.
A similar challenge is “ Sober October ”. This is primarily about health but also about preventing alcohol-related problems. The campaign aims to raise awareness of responsible alcohol consumption.

What happens if you give up alcohol?

Of course, it doesn't make sense to go without alcohol for a month and then consume more of it the rest of the year. But it's amazing that not drinking alcohol for four weeks is enough to have positive effects on our body and psyche.
Anyone who continues to reduce their alcohol consumption will benefit from the challenge in the long term.

Liver detoxification

The liver is not only our detoxification organ, it is also involved in most metabolic processes in the body. Accordingly, relieving the strain on this important organ has a positive effect on our overall well-being. Alcohol has a toxic effect on the liver; even small amounts can damage liver cells. By avoiding alcohol, the liver can regenerate.

Better sleep

One of the first noticeable effects of Dry January is an improvement in sleep quality. Although alcohol may help you fall asleep, it disrupts your sleep cycle. Without alcohol, sleep is deeper and more restful.

More energy

Many people experience a boost of energy over the course of an alcohol-free month . You feel more vital and active overall. The clarity of thought and the increased energy give everyday life a positive note that should not be underestimated.

Better skin appearance

Alcohol can dry out the skin and give it a dull complexion. An alcohol-free January can lead to a visible improvement in the complexion. The skin appears brighter and healthier, skin imperfections can improve.

weight loss

Alcohol not only provides plenty of calories, but it also blocks fat loss. If you go without it for a month, you may be able to enjoy a small amount of weight loss.

Improved concentration

The improvement in overall health is often accompanied by an improvement in our ability to concentrate and memory.

Last but not least: a good feeling

Anyone who hasn't drunk alcohol for a month will definitely feel good at the end. It is a positive experience to realize that you can have fun and enjoy life without consuming alcoholic beverages. Dry January strengthens our self-confidence and gives us the certainty that we don't need alcoholic drinks.
Alcohol-free January not only offers short-term benefits, but also paves the way to a sustainably healthier lifestyle and increased self-confidence.

What can you drink as a substitute for alcohol?

Dry January is a challenge , but it's actually not about doing without - on the contrary. With a positive attitude, we will quickly realize that we can only win from this experiment.
transparency
At this point you may be wondering what it will be like when you are invited to dinner or when friends want to toast a special event with you. The simplest solution is to share your plan with those around you.
Be open about giving up alcohol in January and talk about the health campaign. Of course, the easiest way to avoid alcohol is to convince your partner before the challenge.
Be confident: Most people will respond respectfully to your decision and may even be inspired to give it a try.

Alcohol-free alternatives from Dr. Jaglas

Of course, you won't have to miss out on enjoyment during dry January . There are many delicious alternatives to alcoholic drinks . Non-alcoholic beer and non-alcoholic wine are now available everywhere. Non-alcoholic spirits are a very interesting alternative that you might even stick with once January rolls around.

The " Herbe Hibiskus ", for example, is the counterpart to the alcohol-free Aperol, while the " San Limello " offers the authentic taste of Limoncello without alcohol. The exquisite aperitifs and herbal elixirs in pharmacist quality have already convinced many gourmets.
Also discover the inspiring recipe collection for cocktails and long drinks . The high quality and the authentic taste experience will convince you.

Conclusion on Dry January

A dry January is more than just a New Year's resolution .
It is a journey of self-discovery, an opportunity to reflect on your relationship to alcohol and start the new year fresh. The health benefits are just a pleasant side effect. So, why not follow the trend and give Dry January a chance? It is worth it!
