In this modern, busy world our immune systems take a hammering. Stress, a processed food diet, lack of sleep - these are all factors that contribute.
We get run down, get the sniffles, a sore throat, or just feel chronically tired with annoying brain fog to boot.
Prevention is better than cure, so what can we do to stave off the lurgies?
Time to get anti!
Antioxidants are compounds produced in your body and found in foods. They help defend your cells from damage caused by harmful molecules known as free radicals. When free radicals accumulate, they cause a state known as oxidative stress.
Superfood Shots to the rescue!
Our Shots are not only packed with vitamin C (127% of daily recommended intake) but they're also chock full of antioxidants.
The main antioxidant compounds present in blackcurrants (the main Double Shot and Red Shot ingredient) are phenolics (including flavonoids and anthocyanins) and vitamin C.
The purple/black colour of blackcurrants indicates the presence of anthocyanins, which have exceptionally strong antioxidant activity as well as other health-promoting qualities.
