With the launch of our NEW Wellness Shots, we checked in with registered dietitian Eliza Savage for her take on the ingredients, benefits, and some helpful Q&A. Here's what she had to tell you!

Splendid Spoon’s new Wellness Shots are a delicious, easy way to boost nutrition, energy and immunity in one sip. Whether it’s allergy season or flu season, you’re feeling awesome or sluggish, it’s Monday or Friday, you’re traveling or hibernating, the Wellness Shots are a quick (and research-backed!) way to promote your health with minimal effort.

From a dietitian’s point of view, there is ample evidence that supports the superfood ingredients. The refreshing citrus shots really do live up to their name!

Orange

Full of vitamin C and carotenoids, orange juice provides potent antioxidant effects (protect the body’s cells against harmful free radicals). Research suggests that oranges may help to reduce the severity and duration of cold symptoms.

Lemon

Known as a potent detoxifier, lemon juice provides antioxidants and citric acid which promotes natural detoxification processes of the liver. Studies propose that citric acid found in lemon may help to reduce inflammation, especially in the brain and liver.

Ginger

One of the most powerful plants available, ginger is widely used for its medicinal properties. Gingerol, the active compound in the plant, is known for its powerful anti-inflammatory and anticancer effects. It’s also great for fighting nausea, treating indigestion, and fighting infections.

Oregano Extract

Rich in bacteria and inflammation-fighting compounds, oregano extract is a powerful, antioxidant-rich herb. It’s been used for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat ailments such as vomiting and respiratory disorders. A study demonstrated that carvacrol, an active component of oregano oil, has powerful antiviral capacities that can fight norovirus (stomach flu).

Sea Salt

Minimally processed sea salt contains trace amounts of minerals and helps to regulate fluid balance and blood pressure in the body. The salty flavor offsets the super sweet taste of the citrus fruit and helps your body to maintain adequate hydration and electrolyte levels.

Just like the bowls and smoothies, the Wellness Shots are vegan, gluten-free, and contain no added sugar and are low in sodium. They’re also 100% organic! I can guarantee you’ll be hooked after the first sip.

Sounds great right? Here are a few answers to the most frequently asked questions:

How often should I drink a Wellness Shot? Is it okay to have one every day? It’s so delicious… can I drink more than one?

A Wellness Shot is the perfect addition to your daily routine. It’s okay to have one every day, or even two during a particularly compromised time. That said, one should suffice, and spread the wealth out over your week!
