Adrenal Support Tonic
Our Certified Organic Herbal Tonic for energy and adrenal support combines some of the most widely used adaptogenic herbs to protect your body from the depleting effects of stress. Used as a daily tonic, the formula can help energize, support healthy athletic performance and boost stamina, help restore mental alertness when experiencing fatigue and enhance your experience of general health and well-being.
Rhodiola Root If you look at the rugged alpine conditions and rocky soils that rhodiola thrives in, its easy see how this plant embodies resilience. Its tenacious nature is balanced by the characteristic fragrant, rosy smell of its root. As a nervous system tonic, it supports us in maintaining this balance as well: affirming our inner grace and resilience in the face of occasional stress. Rhodiola is traditionally called on as a calmative during occasional nervous irritability and as a restorative to mental alertness during occasional fatigue. The high altitude root also supports optimal physical performance and is a favorite of endurance athletes.
American Ginseng Root This rare root, which should only be used if organically grown, has a rich and storied history: trappers in the 18th century harvested loads of it to send to China, where is was (and still is) prized as the "root of life". It supports all vital processes in the human body, but does so without being stimulating: in fact, taken long-term, it encourages a calm and healthy response to life's challenges. This can go a long way in supporting strong and healthy energy levels, encouraging good stamina, sexual vitality, and healthy immunity.
Hawthorn Berry, Flower and Leaf Hawthorn supports a healthy heart. And we mean that both physiologically and emotionally. The small, red berry along with its five-petaled white flower (think apple blossom) and leathery, toothed leaves have traditionally been used to support optimal cardiac function as well as healthy emotional balance. We are happy to bring you an extract that includes all three of these plant parts harvested at different phases of the tree's yearly growth, as together they make for a dynamic synergy in support of a healthy, vibrant you.
Licorice Root The same root that flavors and sweetens our confections is a great boon to maintaining good health as well. Licorice is highly prized by herbalists for too many reasons to count. One area where it particularly shines is in promoting optimal respiratory function. Moistening licorice comforts and is powerful, yet gentle. Its influence in maintaining healthy digestive function is similarly comforting, where it provides relief from occasional acid indigestion. When taken regularly as a tonic, it supports our resilience to occasional stress and supports healthy immunity. Any way you look at it, licorice is bound to increase your vitality and invite you to live your daily life rooted in comfort.
Cinnamon Cinnamon is a soothing spice that makes its appearance in our Immune Zoom to keep you warm and cozy when you need it most. The curly bark of the cinnamon tree can be powdered or extracted and is traditionally used to support circulation and immune function.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How should I use the Energy Tonic?
A. Take 1/2 teaspoon (2.5mL) 2-3 times a day, straight or in a bit of water. Sip lovingly, enjoying the blessings of good health! Tonics build health over time and are not meant to provide instant relief of illness. We encourage you to embrace your tonic as a part of a regular regime to build radiant health!
Q. Are these tonics safe?
A. Urban Moonshine strives to make products that are safe & effective. They steer clear of herbs that are widely contraindicated so that most folks can safely use our products. Be sure to stay within the recommended serving size. If you have any specific medical concerns, please consult with a holistic practitioner or your doctor before starting a new supplement regime! Also, please note our guidelines for pregnancy/lactation below and also note that our products contain alcohol (see below). We are not licensed practitioners, and cannot recommend or prescribe any of our products for medical uses.
Q. Why is there alcohol in these products? Do you make any alcohol-free products?
A. The herbalists at Urban Moonshine feel that alcohol is the best way to extract and preserve the chemical constituents of the herbs we love. They use organic, gluten-free cane alcohol. This is a traditional method of making tinctures, and it gives the products the best taste and longest shelf life possible. There is a very low amount of alcohol in each serving, when you consider the dose of the product and the percentage alcohol (1/4 tsp of the bitters at 30-35% alcohol is about 1/12 tsp alcohol–just a few drops!). Think of it like mouthwash or cough medicine–not an alcoholic beverage!
Q. Is there gluten in these products?
A. No! Urban Moonshine Bitters and Tonics are made with 100% Certified Organic Cane Alcohol, which is naturally a gluten-free alternative to commonly used grain alcohol. It is used for its quality, taste, and extraction excellence! We're delighted that there are no Genetically Modified Organisms in these products–no GMOs!
Q. What are Tonics and how do they work?
A. Tonics are a class of herbs that tone the system over time. Tonics are an age-old category of herbs that are used to strengthen the body as a form of preventative medicine.
Q. Can I use the herbal tonics while pregnant and/or breastfeeding?
A. Immune Tonic, Energy Tonic and Joy Tonic are all not for use during pregnancy. These herbal tonics can be used with caution during lactation; please stay within the recommended dosage and consult your healthcare practitioner.
Q. Are Urban Moonshine products safe for children?
A. Yes! All of our products are safe for children over 2 years old, as long as the dose is sized-down according to their weight. The recommended serving sizes on the bottles are for 150lb. adults, so just divide by your child's weight to find the correct ratio and then apply that same ratio to the serving size.
Q. What is the shelf life of the herbal tonics? Do I need to refrigerate my bottle?
A. The Urban Moonshine herbal tonic products are good for 3-5 years after blending, depending on storage conditions (ideal storage is in a cool, dark place). To determine the blend date: look for the Lot Number on your bottle; it is in the format of numerical digits, then a letter, then 4 more digits. The last 4 digits of this string are the month and year (MMYY) that the product was BLENDED. For example, for Lot 143C0615, the lot # is 143C and the blend date is 0615, or June 2015, thus the expiration date is between June 2018-2020. If your product was bottled before 5/27/15, when we updated our system, then there is an expiration date printed on the label. Our products do not need to be refrigerated; please store them in a cool, dark place.
Q. Should I take Urban Moonshine products if I am using other supplements or medication?
A. Please seek the advice of your holistic practitioner for indications with other medications.
I liked the energy tonic. I didn't notice much of a difference. It had a taste to it that seemed to change, but was pleasant.
