The research behind our shots

Our wholefood powders provide a nutritional solution to support the complex working systems of your body. Backed by research and clinical studies, our shots work to support your general health and wellbeing.


We may think of energy as the ability to leap out of bed every morning and immediately tick off our never-ending to-do lists. From our body’s point of view, energy comes down to a little organelle called the mitochondria, which does the biochemical work of turning electrons from food into the energy currency of the body.

Factors like chronic low-grade inflammation, nutrient deficiencies as well as excessive oxidative stress slow down our mitochondrial energy production and can damage the mitochondria themselves, leading to that low energy, sluggish
feeling. Our shots work to combat this by targeting the cause of low energy production. In addition, nutrients like magnesium, B vitamins/folate, and vitamin C present in our shots help alleviate deficiencies that can cause fatigue, while also supporting the formation of healthy red blood cells which transport oxygen to our cells.

Five easy and unusual ways to boost energy

The immune system is a complex network of cells and chemincal messengers. It's main function is to patrol the body, monitoring hte health of it's own cells and determining which cells or substances are foreign. Poor diets, stress, lack of sleep, and exposure to environmental chemicals can lead to low-grade unresolved inflammation, and lowered immunity to infections and diseases.

At any time about 70% of your immune system is present in the lymph nodes lining your gut. By improving your gut microbiome with micronutrients like fiber and polyphenols, the Double Shot helps to support better immunity to infections through mitgating inflammation at the gut level.

Chronic illness & general health

Our immune system's main job is to monitor the health of our cells, determining whether cells or substances are foreign, and then deciding whether to mount an attack or tolerate them. If our immune system is not adept at identifying and clearing damaged cells we may be at an increased risk of many cancers and viral illnesses, and if our immune system is over zealous we can be predisposed to allergies and autoimmunity.

Low grade, chronic inflammation underlies many diseases associated with aging ranging from osteoporosis, diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease to cancer and certain types of neurodegenerative diseases such as dementia.

At any time about 70% of your immune system is present in the lymph nodes lining your gut. Through improving the gut microbiome with micronutrients like fiber and polyphenols the Double Shot supports better immunity to infections through mitigating inflammation at the
gut level.

How we can reduce chronic inflammation

Chronic inflammation is thought to be a significant factor for almost every disease associated with ageing. In order to achieve vibrant health we need to understand how to allay chronic inflammation.

Cardiovascular health

Cardiovascular disease is the leading killer of women globally.

Chronic inflammation, stress, lack of exercise, poor sleep, lack of time spent outdoors and a standard diet that includes excessive sugar, seed oils and processed foods are all to blame. 

Decades of research show that eating fruit and vegetables is highly protective of cardiovascular disease.

The ingredients and micronutrients in the Double Shot have been shown to reduce arterial inflammation (the stickiness of our arteries), improve blood flow and clotting while also reducing blood pressure through increasing nitric oxide levels.

The micronutrients found in Double Shot also help to reduce the oxidative stress and inflammation that damage LDL (bad cholesterol) and lead to the process of arterial calcification.

Focus and brain health

We all want to be sharper, happier and protect our memory and cognitive function as we get older, and it could be as easy as increasing your intake of certain plant-based foods.

The Double Shot contains specific research-based ingredients that may help improve memory, cognition, and dopamine levels in the brain. The anti-inflammatory micronutrients and antioxidants found in the Double Shot also protect the brain and may help to reduce the buildup of plaque that predisposes us to certain
neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and dementia. Through reducing brain or neuro inflammation with the powerful ingredients contained in the Double Shot, you can directly benefit brain fog, memory, and mood. 

Superfruit for brain health

A recent study by the University of Auckland found that New Zealand blackcurrants are packed full of a key brain nutrient that helps fight age-related brain conditions and helps maintain whole-body health and wellness.

Gut health

Our gut microbiome, which consists of a collection of trillions of micro-organisms helps to regulate inflammation and immunity, produce vitamins for us, and regulate gut function and detoxification.

The Double Shot contains ingredients that directly cause inflammation in the gut and improve liver function along with anthocyanins which turn off inflammation on a genetic level. The high polyphenol and fiber content in the Double Shot work to support and feed healthy gut bacteria which is thought to be the key to gut health. Through providing a rich variety of antioxidants, supporting a healthy microbiome and liver detoxification, promoting regularity and gut motility, the Double Shot not only improves digestive health but may also reduce the risk of many chronic diseases related to low grade inflammation. 

The importance of good gut health

We look at why a healthy gut microbiome is important to us, what negatively affects it, as well as some simple steps on how to improve your gut health.

Hair, skin and nails

Good digestion and absorption of nutrients is essential for great hair skin and nail health. Thanks to ingredients like cereal grasses and broccoli sprouts, we can prevent constipation and keep our gut microbiome in optimal shape so we absorb the nutrients we need for beautiful hair, skin and nails. 

Antioxidants and polyphenols help to protect skin from environmental damage, while zinc and vitamin C are important for collagen synthesis. Compounds found in broccoli sprouts have been shown to reduce the risk of skin cancers and specifically protect the skin from UV damage through reducing the inflammatory response that occurs with overexposure.

Skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis often have a strong inflammatory and immune component, Ingredients like broccoli sprouts, and micronutrients like zinc have been shown to help improve your gut microbiome and supporting the immune system.

Healthy ageing and joint health

The conditions associated with ageing are to a large degree underlied by low-grade and chronic inflammation, as well as the build up of free radicals/oxidative stress which further damage the structure and function of cells in the body. Unchecked inflammation can present as generalised pain, joint stiffness, dry eyes, poor bone density, high cholesterol, worsening glycemic control, low mood and insomnia.

The Double Shot is the perfect companion to improving your health span, as it contains many powerful micronutrients and plant-based compounds that have been shown to reduce inflammation, improve blood sugar, and reduce oxidative stress.

Athletic performance and recovery

The Double Shot the perfect companion to professional athletes and casual exercisers alike. A recent system review/meta analysis demonstrated that New Zealand blackcurrants alone (one of our main ingredients) can improve athletic performance.

Ingredients in the Double Shot may also increase nitric oxide production to nourish working muscles and improve energy, while removing excess lactic acid which leads to cramps and soreness!

The ingredients in the Double Shot may also improve recovery through moderating inflammation and oxidative stress, while protecting the gut from the effects of reduced blood flow during longer workouts
