We’re heading into winter soon, which means hello flu season. With Covid-19 sticking around like a bad rash and cold and flu season looming, it’s important to keep your immune system as strong as possible. Luckily, a new delicious product has hit supermarket fridges to help you do just that. Packed with only the good stuff to keep you healthy, Sir Fruit’s new Immunity Booster Shot is ideal for anyone who likes to start their morning off the right way.
Using a combination of cold-pressed juices, extracts and added vitamins, the 100ml juice shot comprises of cold-pressed orange, apple, ginger, turmeric and lemon, and is filled with a good dose of Echinacea and vitamins to ensure each health shot packs a serious punch.
The shot contains essential vitamins and minerals to help keep your body strong. Vitamin B3 helps to convert food into energy while keeping the nervous system and skin looking healthy, while Vitamin B5 helps your body obtain energy from food and assist in hormone and cholesterol production. Vitamin B6 assists the body in using and storing energy from protein and carbohydrates in food and form haemoglobin (the substance in red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout the body).
It’s also packed with Vitamin B12, which is vital for neurological function, DNA production and red blood cell development. Plus, with 100% of your daily recommended allowance of Vitamin C, the shot is brilliant at helping to protect cells and keep them healthy. Vitamin C supports the maintenance of healthy skin, blood vessels, bones, cartilage and aids in wound healing. Lastly, Vitamin D helps maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus, which strengthens bones, teeth and muscles.
“The idea for this shot came about at the start of lockdown,” says Sir Fruit, Head of Marketing, Roanne Goldsmith. “We were talking about how we could help South Africans be as healthy as possible and specifically what we could do to play our part during the pandemic. We all agreed that getting the correct nutrients and a sufficient amount of these was an important part of building up people’s immune systems. So we set about developing a health shot with as much good stuff in as possible.”
The health shot is indeed delicious and offers a quick and easy way to get a generous dose of essential vitamins into your system. It’s a great option for anyone who is looking to get their daily vitamins in a more natural way rather than opting for a tablet or powdered supplement. The ginger, turmeric and lemon give the shot a great sour, tangy taste, while the apple juice adds a touch of sweetness to the mix to help the shot go down a treat.
Sir Fruit’s Immunity Shot retails from R21.99 and is available at top grocers nationwide and for home delivery online from the Sir Fruit website.
