For Ksisters I have to shoot weekly base for new collection and film IG stories daily basis. I have been enjoying a lot to communicate with our followers and customers. The only moment I felt stressed was when my face became really puffy before shooting due to severe morning water retention. Also If I sit very long time on the chair, I always feel bloated and heavy in the late afternoon. So I don't like to wear tight pants or skirt, because I feel discomfort after lunch always! I also have constipation problem when I travel long time. Many nights in hotels and airplanes I had to fight with water retention and constipation.
<This photo was taken during my Indonesia Business trip! Look at my puffy face when morning water retention and many "not going to toilet" day combined!>
I know that I need to go to gym and exercise more, but as a mum of two young kids and a founder of small business, I really don't have enough time. ( I know it is an excuse, but if I have time I would rather sleep haha)
So, when I heard about this Gongmi Detox, which is really hot in Korea now, I wanted to try for myself. So I personally bought and tried from July and really liked it. What I really liked about it is 1)It is so easy to consume and carry thanks to its sachet type and 2)made with simple & safe ingredients!So it is one of most loved water retention tea and constipation enzyme for pregnant ladies and breastfeeding mums! and it is FOOD (not diet medicine), so there is no side effect after taking long term!
That is why I quickly contacted Gonmi HQ, and after so many sleepless nights and meetings, Luckily Gongmi HQ approved our distributorship in Singapore as a sole distributor, I feel extremely proud!
WHAT is gongmi?
GongMi 空美 - Gongmi starts from the concept of “Beauty begins within.” Gongmi helps to detox and purify your body on the inside, promoting healthier & lighter me!
Founder Kim Dongyeon was news anchor in Korea, and like other anchors she was always concerned about how she looks on Morning News. Especially she had serious morning water retention problem. So she tried many methods, but most of them were only temporary effect and wasn’t healthy, only making her feel bloated.
So she teamed up with Korean Oriental Medicine Doctor, Jeong Hyun Jae (which is renowned Detox expert) and made Gongmi Tea & Enzyme, which helps you feel lighter only in healthy and natural way. Its ingredient is all from mother nature.
<Doctor Jeong Hyunjae's interview about the product>
Gongmi business started in 2015, and quickly became very famous “The Water Retention Tea, which started all water retention tea boom” and “Constipation Enzyme powder” in Korea!
It was nicknamed as “news anchor beauty secret” and “pregnant mama tea” known as best water retention tea after delivery. So in Korean confinement centers (yes we don’t do confinement at home, we go to this center for 2-3 weeks), many new born baby mamas did group purchase Gongmi set to eliminate water retention! It is safe for pregnancy and breastfeeding! I know many ladies have constipation during pregnancy, then consider Gongmi Enzyme as a safe choice!
Gongmi brand started in 2015 and started water retention tea boom in Korea! Word of mouth was so powerful that major department stores like Galleria, Lotte, and Hyundai started to stock Gongmi! (Check out my Hyundai department store visit in July! - 2nd & 3rd videos) also major TV home shopping channels like Lotte and NS launched Gongmi too. Especially NS channel is top food shopping channel(very difficult to be listed)! So once you are introduced in this channel, your quality is guaranteed in a way! Even after many years, it is still no.1 in water retention tea category thanks to its high quality!
How Gongmi Tea/ Enzyme works?
Gongmi tea is for Water Retention! Gonmi enzyme is for Constipation. Both products are made differently with different ingredients, but starting from same principle! How to detox our body in a healthy & natural way?
Why do we(ladies) feel heavy, bloated, and tired all the time? The main reason for these symptoms is the circulatory disturbance from our unbalanced body.
Why circulation problem is happening to women? The basal metabolism of female decreases more dramatically with aging than male's so the the female body doesn't use up the energy rather accumulate inside the body So for better circulation and balance in the body it is very important to detox and cleanse.
How can we detox our body? In Korean Oriental Medicine, we believe the best circulation of our body comes from maintaining cool chest, well circulated stomach, and warm lower abdomen. Dong Yi Bao Jian said Bamboo leafs, Atractylodes lancea, and Cinnamon will help to warm your lower body and better circulation, so it will help you feel more energetic and vital as a result.
Gongmi Tea has 11 derived ingredients which help to warm your lower body and better circulation.
It is not made by just simply mixing ready-made ingredient with preservatives or food additive, which is cheaper. Just like TCM and Traditional Korean Medicine, they boiled down all ingredients for many rounds (decoction method) to get really condensed final result. So it is 20 brix(most famous ginseng concentrates in Korea is usually 5 brix!) Imagine how highly concentrated it is!
And that is not the end of story! your 1 sachet is made of 90% of this condensed extract. not 30-40 %! Remaining 10% is only oligofructose(which serves as a substrate for microflora in the large intestine, increasing the overall gastrointestinal tract (GI Tract) health )!
Nothing else like preservatives and food additive. Like you check one by one of your baby food's full ingredient list, please check Gongmi's full ingredient list till the end. (same for your food choice, always make sure you check full ingredient list! Healthy habit!)
Like we always compare how much percentage of actual key ingredient is in your skin care product, Gongmi made sure it is really good enough! Gongmi Tea is 90% and Gongmi enzyme is 99%!

(Bamboo Leaves, Wheat, Adhesive Rehmannia, Corn Silks, Poria Cocos Wolf, Seed of Sacred Lotus, Root of Phragmites Communis Trin, Root of Astragalus Membranaceus Bunge, Cinnamon, Skin of Mandarin Orange, Atractylodes Lancea Root)
Gongmi Enzyme has only 2 ingredients.
Just like Gongmi tea is made with Traditional Korean Medicine decoction method, Gongmi enzyme is made very specially too. It is not made by simply mixing ready-made rice bran enzyme powder and ready-made wild bean powder with food additive and sweetner, which is easier, cheaper, and faster.
Firstly, they get organic certified rice bran and wild bean. Secondly, they put them in specially treated incubator for 48 hours. Thirdly, only qualified ones from incubator can go to next process. If it is not qualified, they will be scrapped. Qualified ones contain rich Carbohydrase Enzyme (Alpha Amylase) and Proteolytic Enzyme (Protease).
Gongmi HQ is really proud of this solid fermentation process, which is very natural and healthy, but extremely difficult to make it stable. They could only achieve this technology after many years research.
And just like Gongmi Tea, your 1 gongmi enzyme sachet is made of 99% of this fermented rice bran and bean. yes, 99%! And remaining 1% is ingredient called Aspergillus Oryzae, which helps bowel movement and constipation.
It didn't add any flavor, scent, preserves, and any food additives. That is why it smells funny, but that is why we can assure you that it is very natural and even safe for pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Gongmi Tea : Open up the sachet and mix with hot water and drink. (Cold water also works. But I personally preferred hot water!) 1 time per day. 1 box has 28 sachets, so it is good for 1 month consumption.
If you have circulatory disturbanceor you want to feel lighter(faster), you can try 2 drinks per day for first month. and continue to drink 1 time per day in 2nd month.
For day time - Try to drink Gongmi tea instead of coffee and soft drink.
For night time - 1~2 hours before sleep drink it!
Jungmin's tip: For night time I mix in small cup(because I don't want to go to toilet!) During day time, I mix in big cup and drink like warm tea! It was really helpful for my afternoon bloating!
Gongmi Enzyme :Open up the sachet. Drink with water or eat with yoghurt! 1 time per day. 1 box has 28 sachets, so it is good for 1 month consumption.
If you have circulatory disturbance or you want to feel lighter(faster), you can try 2 sachets per day for first month. and continue to consume 1 time per day in 2nd month.
For Morning - Consume it in empty stomach! Swallow with water or Eat with yoghurt. I usually try to eat with yoghurt, but if I have no time, I just consume with water.
For night time - 1 hour before sleep, you can consume with water.
Even though you are having Gongmi set, if you always eat late night snacks or even eat more than usual amount, You can't expect to feel lighter. During Gongmi Detox days, please remember that you are doing herbal detox, so try to eat lighter and avoid late night snacks!
Taste:Tea tastes very similar to Chinese herbal tea. Enzyme has its own fermented smell, my team says it smells like chicken sausage!
