Our favourite kind of shot! Packed full of goodness to help benefit your mind and body, the ingredients have been carefully selected to boost your energy, immunity, brain function, skin health/elasticity and a whole host of other wonderfully beneficial effects from the all natural ingredients. We have tried the Ginger Turmeric Collagen shot, the Chamomile Lavender Spirulina shot and the Matcha Moringa Ginseng - so let's talk about what we know of these ingredients:
Ginger and Turmeric are long standing favorites of ours here at into_view Magazine. Both are known for their extraordinarily strong anti-inflammatory effects and they are both proven antioxidants. From the ginger you will benefit from gingerols and in turmeric it is the curcumin that contributes towards good health . Both herbs have been extensively studied and used for thousands of years in Indian and ancient Chinese medicine. We were also happy to find black pepper on the list of ingredients as it helps you to absorb the curcumin in the turmeric a bit better. We've not yet come across very many drinks with added collagen but we all know of that it contributes to smooth, taught, supple skin. And who doesn't want that! We learnt some more about this ingredient and how they source it on the Bumble Zest website:
"Collagen helps men, women and children with the proper functioning of skin, bones, hair, joints, muscles, connective tissues and internal organs. Branched-chain amino acids, which are contained in collagen, improve the body’s synthesis of protein while also increasing the capacity for protein synthesis. These combined effects result in gains for both muscle mass and generation.
Collagen is safe to be consumed regularly as it helps to boost the production of body collagen. Collagen powder is tasteless, so even with our generous dose of 5.5g your taste buds probably won’t notice it is there. This provides 5.5g of high quality protein for those looking for a post gym recovery drink. We use the very best Hydrolysed Marine Collagen, made up of small, usable chain peptides and amino acids. This is the most easily absorbed form for the human body. Our Collagen is non GMO and is sourced from a combination of ethically sourced wild fish."
Chamomile and Lavender both sound like beautiful, soothing plants, which we turn to when we need a moment of calm and relaxation. Algae on the other hand does not sound like the most appealing addition to your morning. However, Spirulina (similar to chlorella) is extremely nutritious and it is a great source of protein, antioxidants and B-vitamins. And luckily you have the flavour and scent of lavender to please your tastebuds.
Matcha, Moringa and Ginseng are all powerful in their own right, but together they will 'Propel' and 'Protect' by giving you a steady source of energy and boost to your immune system. Matcha green tea is another staple at into_view Magazines HQ. No doubt you have caught onto the trend of the matcha latte. Not only delicious but when consuming matcha you are eating the whole of the green tea leaf, which means that you are getting higher doses of the EGCG antioxidant. Moringa has not had as much publicity as Matcha but is known to contribute to physical stamina. And Ginseng a root grown in North America has been used for centuries for its therapeutic and wellness qualities.
