BOTANICS FORTIFY REVIEWED BY AMELIA FREER

August 30, 2016


I can’t get enough of Botanic Lab’s new BOTANICS cold pressed range available exclusively at All Bar One. My particular favourite has to be FORTIFY as I am a HUGE fan of turmeric root; it has to be one of nature’s greatest offerings thanks to its anti viral and anti inflammatory properties.



It has a sensational flavour, complex and spicy with a lovely warmth from the raw turmeric, ginger and chilli. As usual, Botanic Lab have added that extra something to this drink and the others in the range with their use of botanicals (hence the name).

In FORTIFY they’ve added the adaptogen ashwagandha, and the ‘velvet bean’ Mucuna Pruriens. Adaptogens are rapidly becoming something of a trend to those ‘in the know’ as they have amazing benefits for balancing stress in the body and boosting immunity.

Mucuna Pruriens contains the active ingredient L-Dopa which also helps to combat stress and helps to promote brain health. It is often called the ‘happy bean’ as it has been used a lot in the treatment of depression because it helps increase dopamine in the brain, which is essential in regulating our mood.  BOTANICS are the perfect solution for me on a night out as they are completely free of refined sugar which is a must in my book. They offer a great taste experience and a lovely lift from the botanicals, that my friends may be enjoying from cocktails and alcohol.   I like to drink FORTIFY over ice but occasionally I do indulge and recently tried mixing it with Gin which went down pretty well and tasted even better knowing I was complimenting the alcohol with something so clean and healthy.
