Joy Tonic is an herbal liquid formation that helps in the treatment of states of irritability, stress, constant worry, anxiety, subsequent lack of sleep, and other similar conditions that lead to emotional imbalance. In addition, it may also be taken to reduce symptoms related to the women’s menstrual cycle. It is produced by Urban Moonshine.
Urban Moonshine is a small company from Vermont in USA that specializes in the production of bitters and tonics. It was set up in 2009 by an herbalist with many years of experience, Jovial King. The company is a small family business according to the official website thus in our view there may be a lot of consumers who have not tried their products yet. Urban Moonshine focuses on the production of handcrafted organic herbal remedies only, as it is committed to being socially and environmentally responsible.
The manufacturer advertises Joy Tonic as containing calming herbs that have a beneficial effect on the nervous system and thus on our inner balance. Herbalists also say that these herbs are not habit forming as well. The product is aimed at helping individuals suffering from modern age conditions like anxiety and stress. It is also recommended to women in reducing symptoms related to premenstrual syndrome.
Joy Tonic Ingredients
Joy Tonic includes the following ingredients: Organic Linden, Organic Motherwort, Organic Mugwort, Organic Rose, Organic Lemon Balm, Organic Lemongrass, Organic Grape Alcohol, and Water.
Joy Tonic is an herbal formula which contains some herbs that influence the functioning of the nervous system. One such herb is linden. Linden has been used for hundreds of years in treating various illnesses such coughs and colds, anxiety, vomiting, heartbeat problems, and digestive problems. The plant contains chemical components that have antioxidant (contribute to new cell growth), astringent and anti-inflammation properties. There are a limited number of scientific studies on the efficiency of linden, despite its wide use in folk medicine. Animal studies and test tubes have shown the plant has diuretic and sedative properties. Side effects include heart damage (caused by frequent use of the plant) otherwise linden is considered safe if the dosage is correct.
The Joy Tonic formula contains a mix of plants whose effect has not been evaluated by the FDA. However dietary supplements do not need FDA approval. The manufacturer does not mention any side effects or possible interactions with other drugs or supplements. However, it does not recommend the formula to pregnant women.
The product comes in spray bottles of 15 ml (1/2 oz), dropper bottles of 2 oz and refill bottles of 8.4 oz respectively. According to the manufacturer, the daily recommended dose is either one teaspoon or 4-6 sprays.
- It contains plants traditionally used for their calming effects
- It is made of organic products only
- Shipping charges are affordable
- One month’s supply would cost around $25, which recommends it as a moderately priced to fairly expensive product
- Both the tonic and the producer are relatively new on the market
- It has few online customer testimonials
Joy Tonic is a fairly new product on the market of herbal supplements, therefore it does not have many online customer testimonials to back up its effectiveness. It may work though as it contains herbs that have been long used for their calming effects and that are relatively safe, meaning they might have only mild side effects if taken correctly. In our view, Joy Tonic is worth trying but we believe nonetheless that you should ask for advice from a healthcare specialist especially if you suffer from a certain illness, as the doctor may tell you if any of the herbs interact with your medicine.
