Ginger-Powered Recoup Beverage
A Founder’s Unlikely Story of Survival and Success
New York City, NY , Feb. 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Some people are lucky enough to live a life of purpose and come full-circle back to a pivotal place from the past. This circumstance is true for Siwat Siengsanaoh. However, his journey back in time was to a place of both heartbreak and triumph.
Featured in a 1983 New York Times article about growing up in a children’s hospital, Siwat was one of the success stories. Coincidentally, later in life, he found himself working a summer internship at the same hospital with some of the same doctors who helped him decades earlier.
The real victory, other than Siwat moving into adulthood happy and healthy, was the co-founding of Recoup. Recoup is an immune-boosting, ginger-based health drink derived from his mother’s home recipe. She used to make this concoction to soothe Siwat’s digestive discomfort and other aches and pains as a child.

Learning his passion
These early experiences made Siwat extremely interested in health, wellness, and helping others. In graduate school, he studied Applied Physiology at Columbia University in the evenings while working during the day at the same hospital where he lived for three years. Upon graduation, Siwat continued his career at New York Presbyterian as a full-time staff member for 11 years. There, he was working side-by-side with some of the same doctors who cared for him as a child, caring for children plagued with heart and lung disease. This experience was one of those life-directing beacons that assured Siwat that his life’s work would be helping people.
In college and after, Siwat loved inventing and bringing ideas to life. His inquisitive mind always found it necessary to produce a tangible product to better understand his ideas and build from them. It’s this character trait that…
