Mr. Mak’s Ginbao Premieres at Expo East 2016


New York, NY (September 22, 2016) – At this year’s Natural Products Expo East, Mr. Mak’s Ginbao is launching a wellness beverage that is brand new, yet, centuries old. Delicious and easy to drink, Ginbao is based on a beverage that simmers across Asia and serves as the basis for nearly half of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) herbal remedies. Your Momo, Tiger Grandpa or TCM practitioner would tell you to drink it daily to aid digestion, increase vitality, boost immunity and deal with stress. Yet it’s never been bottled—until now.

Ginbao was a literal return to the founder, Mr Mak’s, roots. He revived his old recipe and then himself, simmering ginger and ginseng for hours into the perfect Bao. Word spread. Soon he was getting requests throughout New York City from Queens to Canal Street.

“We created Ginbao to bring the real benefits to everyone, not just the flavor,” explains founder Mr. Mak. “It takes true ingredients and time to create a potent, precious Bao. Many tries later, we found it.”

Ginbao takes its name from that core recipe.
– Ginger and Ginseng are power ingredients in Asian wellness—and they’re delicious.
– Bao is the Chinese word for a slow-simmered concentrate. In fact, Bao has about 40 other meanings, including “precious,” “fix” and “gold” — all which apply to this addictively good drink.

“Mr. Mak’s has successfully made a TCM inspired health beverage accessible to the consumer,” says Certified Aruvedic Practitioner Cooper Chou. “Each beverage has an Ayurvedic benefit that caters to each person and their specific needs.”

Ginbao launches with three forms, each with key ingredients drawn from traditional remedies to deliver great taste and specific effects. All are un-carbonated, gluten-free and natural, with no fructose and as few as 40 calories:

About Mr. Mak’s

As a refugee in the 1970’s, the founder Mr. Mak hustled nonstop for his American Dream. He got it…along with stress, exhaustion, and physical funks. But then he remembered an old family recipe for a Ginger Bao (broth) with ginseng. He put the kettle on and was soon enjoying renewed health and sharing this potent drink with family and friends from Chinatown to Queens. Now he’s bringing the jing to people everywhere.
