Packed with superfood ingredients, the Wellness Shots is sure to give you the boost your body needs. We checked in with registered dietitian Eliza Savage for her take on the ingredients and their health benefits. Here's what she had to tell you!
Orange: Full of vitamin C and carotenoids, orange juice provides potent antioxidant effects (protect the body’s cells against harmful free radicals). Research suggests that oranges may help to reduce the severity and duration of cold symptoms.
Lemon: Known as a potent detoxifier, lemon juice provides antioxidants and citric acid which promotes natural detoxification processes of the liver. Studies propose that citric acid found in lemon may help to reduce inflammation, especially in the brain and liver.
Ginger: One of the most powerful plants available, ginger is widely used for its medicinal properties. Gingerol, the active compound in the plant, is known for its powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer effects. It’s also great for fighting nausea, treating indigestion, and fighting infections.
Oregano Extract: Rich in bacteria and inflammation-fighting compounds, oregano extract is a powerful, antioxidant-rich herb. It’s been used for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat ailments such as vomiting and respiratory disorders. A study demonstrated that carvacrol, an active component of oregano oil, has powerful antiviral capacities that can fight norovirus (stomach flu).
Sea Salt: Minimally processed sea salt contains trace amounts of minerals and helps to regulate fluid balance and blood pressure in the body. The salty flavor offsets the super sweet taste of the citrus fruit and helps your body to maintain adequate hydration and electrolyte levels.
