The new Lady Drink claims to be beneficial to women’s health. “There is no special limitation for using Lady Drink. Of course, the result shows better if you drink three to five cans per day,” said Ted Chao, creator of Lady Drink.

Move over skinny vanilla latte, there’s a new girly drink in town, claiming to do a lot more than just amp you up.

Dr. Chao Herbal Lady Drink, introduced in September at Whole Foods Market and other stores, professes to reduce symptoms of PMS, alleviate acne, promote ovarian health, excrete toxic substances and have anti-aging benefits, all with no sugar, calories, artificial sweeteners or preservatives, glutens and caffeine. But there are some who call for skepticism.

“It not only quenches thirst, but is also naturally beneficial to the body,” said Ted Chao, president of U.S. People’s Food and Beverages Co. of Claremont, California, manufacturer of Lady Drink and other herbal drinks.

The main ingredient in Lady Drink is Herba leonuri, better known as the motherwort herb. Although the herb has not been clinically tested in the West, it is a traditional Chinese medicine, used to promote blood circulation and calm the nervous system. The plant is originally from Central Asia.


Comment from Leslie

And on this note of one more stupid product geared towards women – (the result shows better if you drink three to five cans per day) I am calling it a day.
