There are ingredients and then there are super ingredients – ginger, beetroot, wheatgrass – all of which have incredible powers to improve our health and wellbeing. The natural healing abilities of these ingredients have been well-documented, and they are perennial favourites that feature in many of Juice Master Jason Vale’s recipes and plans.
What’s In The Sachet
It’s ginger, with a twist of lemon and apple! For use day or night, squeeze the sachet’s contents into a cup and add boiling water for a warming, caffeine-free drink – we like to think of it as a delicious hug in a mug.
Shot Super Powers
We’ve already explored the health benefits of ginger, but the addition of lemon and apple makes the JM Sip an incredible combination of ingredients with even greater health boosting super powers.
Lemons are high in vitamin C, a primary antioxidant which helps protect cells from damaging free radicals, lower blood pressure and reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke.
Although the jury’s out on whether lemon can improve our immune system and prevent us from catching colds, one study found that increased vitamin C intake can shorten the duration of symptoms – a great reason to dose up on your JM Sip Shots next time you feel the start of a sniffle.
Additionally, lemon contains polyphenols which anecdotal evidence has suggested support weight loss, improve skin quality through the production of collagen and flush the system. In Ayurvedic medicine, lemon is said to stimulate your ‘agni’, boosting the digestive system and preventing the build-up of toxins in the body.
Apples are also rich in antioxidants and fibre, as well as vitamins A, C, K and B7, along with iodine which helps to maintain a healthy thyroid function.
The JM Sip is an all-season star, and this refreshing drink is also a great summer thirst quencher.
