UJAMU (you-jam-oo) is the first FDA approved all-natural, therapeutically active and physiology enhancing herbal beverage range to meet the demands of athletes, sports enthusiasts, health & wellbeing conscious consumers and those looking to boost or enhance their everyday performance levels.
It all started with Naturopathic Doctor and specialist in Sports Medicine, Benjamin Carter ND in 2016. He like a lot of people was approaching 40 and starting to feel it. 70-80hr work weeks and also being a competitive Age Group Triathlete and coaching / advising many professional, elite, Olympic & World Champion athlete’s was taking its toll on increasing recovery times, general mood/happiness and overall on vitality.
So now after 15 years in Asia and very limited herbal or nutritional supplements available on the market, he decided to develop his own as he realized it will take more than the 3D’s (diet, discipline & determination) to breakthrough this barrier.
Over a period of 18 months he sourced only the best fresh and organic Thai herbs and ingredients, experimented with various formulations and extraction processes.
He knew whilst Turmeric is great on its own, its effects can be magnified when combined with other local SE Asian herbs, removing the need for “absorption enhancers” like Black Pepper or its chemical extracts.
Taking his first blend before and after training sessions, he quickly noticed the difference, the most obvious - recovering quickly from extended training sessions feeling refreshed and ready to go with no pain. His professional athletes and clients noticed his improved performance and renewed zest for life, and were constantly inquiring about the beverage concoctions, and in short order he was making up batches for them, tailored for their individual requirements.
Suddenly ujamu was born and sticks to Dr Ben’s Naturopathic background as its designed to help the body heal itself leading to long term solutions, instead of masking symptoms.
This resulted with a product that didn't just highlight the now ever growing effects of Turmeric, but showcased the combined synergistic power of the ingredients which has its benefits into almost all common modern day health concerns.
