Does turmeric powder have the same nutritional benefit as the root?
Although dried turmeric might make a great addition to a curry or tea, its nutritional content has been found to be far inferior to that of the fresh root. This is down to the increased levels of the active ingredient ‘curcumin’ found in the root. In order to get the same benefit you would from one of our shots, you would have to eat far more of the powder than would be realistic as part of a balanced diet.
Will I get the same nutritional benefit from this as your other shots?
Although we have other shots that combine some highly nutritious ingredients you won’t find in this one, the ingredients in our original shot are in their own right a fabulous addition to your daily diet.
Can I mix this shot with other flavours?
Absolutely! When ordering online, we have multi-buy options where you can mix and match your order. Check the other FAQs to see product specific information on the individual benefits of each flavour to help inform your choices.
Do you use any juices in your shots?
All of our ingredients begin life as whole fruits or vegetables. We don’t use any juices, syrups or artificial flavourings in our drinks.
How does your high pressure process work?
Our unique extraction process is designed to ensure that the end product remains in as pure and natural form as is possible. Simply put, our shots are sealed and placed into a tank of water where they undergo a treatment of very high isostatic pressure. This allows us to keep the product fresh whilst retaining as high a nutritional value as possible.
Why are your bottles plastic?
Our process requires the bottles to be sealed before they are treated. For this reason, plastic is the only material that can withstand the pressure of the process. Glass for example will shatter under the pressure. Although we have a recycling programme in place and do everything we can to minimise waste as a business, we plan to switch to a viable alternative immediately once it becomes available. We are always looking to be kinder to the planet, so please do get in touch if you have any further information on potential alternatives.
Are your shots fresh?
Our shots are treated with a high pressure cold press. Although this gives our drinks a slightly longer shelf life without compromising the nutritional benefit of the ingredients, they should still be treated as a fresh product. Our shots should be refrigerated immediately on arrival to ensure they stay fresh.
