Fiona Bugler tries out nutrient-packed Kombucha Health Shots from No.1 Living the brainchild of ex-international rugby player turned wellness warrior Jonny Wilkinson.
Jonny Wilkinson has been on a wellbeing journey for a number of years. A journey which has led to him creating the Kombucha range of products for No.1 Living; products which promise to support gut and brain health and immunity.
Health and immunity matters
- Research from Neilson in March 2020, shows that consumers have prioritised food that is healthy and immunity supporting this year.
- 23,000 consumers were studied by FMCG Gurus in May 2020. Of these, a reported 63 per cent were more conscious of their overall health as a result of coronavirus and 80 per cent were planning to eat and drink more healthily, whilst over half wanted to reduce their sugar intake.
Why take Kombucha health shots?
No.1 Living’s in-house Registered Nutritionist and Food Scientist, Philippa Wallis, explains how 90 per cent of us are not getting the recommended daily amount of fibre of 30g each day (NDNS Survey Results from Years 7 and 8 (combined) of the Rolling Programme (2014/2015 to 2015/2016) – these healthy shots offer a simple solution.
“The prebiotic fibre and live bacteria (Bacillus coagulans) naturally complement each other in terms of their health benefits: prebiotic chicory inulin is selectively fermented by beneficial bacteria living in the gut and scientifically proven to support digestive health,” she explains. “Bacillus coagulans, is proven to reach the gut alive and can help fortify the gut microbiome.”
Kombucha health shots are tasty and so easy to take, I chose to take my shot first thing in the morning. I was reassured knowing that these products packed a punch for my gut with a good base of prebiotic and live bacteria in both drinks. Making that conscious decision to take a healthy shot at the beginning of the day is a good choice that will lead to other good choices. For example you’ll also get an extra dose of vitamin D and a boost to your brain health by getting outside and moving in the day, and getting your blood flowing.
