Turmeric, is a natural source of Curcumin. This plant is native to South East Asia and is part of the ginger family. Its use as a spice in cooking has been established over hundreds of years. Fresh turmeric offers a natural source of curcumin. All of our shots contain black pepper. Black pepper is a natural source of piperine.

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.
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.
