Ingredient Breakdown

Blueberries
A popular fruit and considered a superfood, blueberries are super low in calories but high in fibre, water and vitamins. They contain a high level of antioxidants which provide many health benefits such as lowering blood pressure, improving heart health, preventing disease, helping to maintain brain function and memory, and reducing muscle damage following exercise. 

Elderberry
Elderberry is a plant that is used for a lot of medicinal purposes worldwide and considered to have healing properties. Low in calories but super high in nutrients, they are packed with antioxidants and are often consumed to help people with cold and flu symptoms. Elderberries are also good for heart health and can help to lower cholesterol, as well as improve blood sugar levels. 

Blackcurrants
Blackcurrants are a vitamin powerhouse, filled with vitamins A, B-5, B-6, B-1, E and of course, vitamin C. Their vitamin C content is four times higher than that found in oranges, and they’re also a richer source of antioxidants than its berry brother, blueberries. Blackcurrants are super beneficial for overall skin care, help to boost the immune system, ease inflammation, and assist with muscle and joint pain and stress. 


Beetroot
This delicious vegetable is not only a great source of fibre, iron, potassium and vitamin C but it’s packed full of essential nutrients that help boost energy levels and increase stamina, which is perfect for those intense workouts. Beets are also good for overall heart health and lowering blood pressure.

Acai berries
Acai berries have become a popular fruit for us health and well-being fans and are found in the rainforests of Central and South America. They contain healthy fats, are low in sugar, super-rich in antioxidants (more than blueberries and cranberries) and are filled with vitamins and minerals. Acai berries can improve cholesterol, increase brain function, and have properties that can potentially help protect against cancer.  


Pomegranate
Considered one of the healthiest fruits around, pomegranates are rich in vitamins, minerals and fibre. They contain two plant compounds that have their own super powerful medicinal properties, providing a rich source of antioxidants that are considered three times stronger than the levels found in red wine or green tea. Pomegranates also help to reduce inflammation, which is a major contributor to several serious diseases.

Cranberries
Cranberries have a high water content and are packed with fibre and simple sugars - sucrose, glucose and fructose. A rich source of vitamins and minerals, cranberries contain plant compounds and antioxidants that help protect heart health, fight stomach cancer and ulcers, as well as being a good preventative for UTIs.


Raspberries
Another red fruit packed with nutrients, raspberries are low in calories which can assist with weight loss. They are also high in fibre, vitamin C, and filled with antioxidants that help protect the body against disease. Another ingredient with anti-inflammatory properties, raspberries can also help to lower blood sugar levels. 

Goji berries
Packed with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and tonnes of beneficial medicinal properties, goji berries help with anti-ageing, assist with vision, boost immune function, and improve blood health. Goji berries can also have mental health benefits, improving depression and anxiety driven behaviours. 


Strawberries
This favourite, bright red fruit is predominantly made up of water, and a tiny amount of carbohydrates that are composed mainly of fibre and simple sugars. Strawberries are a great source of vitamin C, which is fab for skin health, and rich in antioxidants that help to keep the body healthy. Strawberries can help with overall heart health and improve cholesterol levels.  

Organic Acerola
Often compared to cherries, acerola are a plant grown, berry type fruit, known for being a rich source of vitamin C. Considered an antioxidant, acerola cherries also contain high amounts of minerals, such as calcium and iron. 

Organic Sea Buckthorn berries
Sea Buckthorn berries are considered a superfruit and grown on shrub-like plants, found commonly in Europe and Asia. They produce an oil that is often used for medicinal purposes as well as skincare/haircare products and is packed full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, sea buckthorn can help reduce redness and any swelling symptoms associated with skin conditions such as eczema and rosacea, whilst also boosting your immune system, enabling good heart health and supporting a healthy liver. 

Organic Maqui berries
Grown in South America, maqui berries are another superfruit, with high levels of antioxidants and great health benefits including overall heart health, reducing inflammation and controlling blood sugar. They also promote good gut function, increasing the good bacteria, as well as support eye health, protecting against damage from intense light exposure. 

Thaumatin
Because we steer clear from artificial flavours and sweeteners, we use the all-natural ingredient thaumatin, to add that sweet touch to our products. Sourced from the katemfe fruit which is found in the rainforests of Africa, thaumatin is considered a protein, unlike a lot of other natural sweeteners. Because its potency is much stronger than sugar, only a small amount needs to be added to products. 

Rice flour
Rice flour is milled from either white or brown rice and is a popular flour used extensively around Asia, Japan and India. It’s gluten-free, high in fibre and rich in vitamins, nutrients and protein. Because of this rice flour can help lower cholesterol, aid in healthy digestion and improve blood sugar levels. Rice flour also contains the nutrient choline, which supports overall liver function and good liver health. 

Marine algae (Lithothamnion sp.)
Red marine algae is a sea vegetable that is high in protein, fibre, and filled with vitamins and minerals. It can help to improve overall blood health as well as boost your immune system. Also rich in antioxidants, red marine algae provides a lot of skincare benefits, helping to hydrate and clarify, and it’s found in a lot of beauty products. 

Prebiotics

Chicory inulin
Inulin is a prebiotic fibre found in chicory, that helps to feed and grow good gut bacteria. Promoting healthy digestion, reducing inflammation and aiding in the control of blood sugar, chicory inulin can help support weight loss as it is believed to help reduce appetite. 

FOS (Fructo-oligosaccharides)
FOS are found in many plants such as garlic, onion, leeks, blue agave, bananas and asparagus and are a type of carbohydrate made of short fructose chains. Considered a natural sweetener, FOS are a great alternative to sugar and other artificial sweeteners, as they are low in calories and can help with weight loss as well as people with diabetes.

GOS (Galacto-oligosaccharides)
Another prebiotic found naturally in fruits and vegetables, GOS can also be found in dairy products, sourced from the lactose in cow’s milk. It’s beneficial to gut health, feeding the good bacteria, and can give the benefits of a prebiotic but at a lower dose than others.

Probiotic 

Bacillus coagulans
Often found in fermented foods such as yoghurt, bacillus coagulans is a good bacteria that is particularly strong and effective at relieving stomach upsets. This includes abdominal cramps and IBS symptoms, as well as supporting good gut function.
