We’ve already covered cocktails with the healthy soda substitute, Zevia, and a one-day juice cleanse, by Project Juice, to detoxify and restore your body.
So I can’t help but talk about one of my additional favorites.
This beverage isn’t a juice and doesn’t require any work to make.
This is a shot...a Kor shot.
And it’s something I take daily!
Long before I talked to the company’s Founder, Jordan, I was buying these shots every day on my trip to Whole Foods. (For those of you that don’t know, I shop like a European; buying just what I need to get through the day so I have next to no food waste.)
Battling an autoimmune condition, these shots were one of the few supplements that made me feel better...immediately!
Daily, I bought the Wellness (Ginger) Shot and the Vitality (Turmeric) Shot, both of which are great for fighting inflammation. Ginger is wonderful for digestion, and turmeric, as we’ve learned before, is a superb root with so many health benefits. It’s an anticoagulant, anti-depressant, anti-inflammatory, and even used on patients undergoing cancer treatment.
I decided to personally reach out to Jordan, as I wanted to commend him for what he’s created, and share the benefits of Kor shots with all my TCMers.
Needless to say I was already a huge fan of Kor’s Wellness and Vitality shots. Little did I know the company had two new shot flavors available for purchase: Black Magic, containing activated charcoal, and Youth, comprised of Sea Buckthorn and Baobab. I was lucky enough to try these shots, and share the results with you.
- less pain (including muscle soreness + headaches)
- more energy/less lethargy
- a more settled stomach
- an overall improved mood
Black Magic is comprised of detoxifying charcoal. If you’re looking for a shot to “clean” you out, this is the one for you! With organic ginger and organic lemon, harvested in Malibu, CA, this shot will reset your body. (*Just don’t take charcoal too frequently, as too much of it can be harsh on the digestive tract.)
Besides the fact that these shots have actually made a difference in my life, I love the fact that like The Clean Method, Jordan founded this company out out his own passion for health and his conviction in the healing properties of these roots.
Jordan’s girlfriend’s father had suffered a massive heart attack, so Jordan became invested in sending him care packages of healthy soups with fresh vegetables from the farmers’ market. This lead him to extensive research in food preservation, technology and the benefits of the roots, now contained in Kor shots. After he returned from a trip to Kauai, he put his interests to work, and began the process of creating nutrient dense shots. He was struck by how energized and renewed he felt when he drank these roots daily.
Jordan wanted to share this amazing experience with others, and simplify the process of obtaining essential nutrients. While juicing or purchasing from juice bars are still great options, those of us that do know that both of these processes can be timely and/or messy.
Kor makes it simple.
Buy a shot, drink it, and feel the benefits…immediately!
