Truth be told, I am one of the few who has never ever tried Lola Remedios. I kept hearing about them from people around as well as radio commercials but I have never tried one. I did have a good impression about it because people seem to always mention it on a good note.
Thankfully, I finally got the chance to try it out myself.
Lola Remedios is an all-natural, ready-to-drink food supplement. Ideally, you should only have 1-3 sachets a day and this can be taken with or without food. Just be sure that you are not allergic to menthol flavors because this packs a lot of menthols.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, don't drink this unless approved by your OB-GYN.
Made with mint, honey, ginger, clove, fennel, peppermint oil, Indian screw, palm sugar, sucrose, and water, the drink has gained popularity in recent years for being a supposed cure-all for everything from coughs and fever to colds.
A product originally from Indonesia, Lola Remedios is also supposed to "increase energy levels, reduce fatigue, relieve body pains and aches in the mouth, ease allergies, improve digestion, and relieve stomach discomforts." This is why so many people think of it as some kind of miracle cure.
I've tried this out for some back pain and I have to say that the taste is great though I may be biased since I love menthol. It didn't have an immediate effect on me but I did feel relaxed after an hour or so.
I'm definitely making Lola Remedios a part of our household from now on. I may not have known about them before but I'm definitely keeping them in my life from now on.
