Wellness supplements and vitamins abound on the marketplace, but many have ingredients that sound scary or are hard to pronounce. That’s the good thing about The Good Glow. It’s a simple formula with simple ingredients that can jump start your day.
What’s in it?
It all starts with organic apple cider vinegar. That’s the base of this wellness shot, and it has the ability to improve digestion and metabolism as well as boost energy levels. It is a recipe for the perfect. first-thing-in-the-morning sip, even before a cup of coffee (or three).
Let’s talk about that first sip though. The apple cider vinegar is certainly a tart surprise, but it tasted similar to a cup of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. That could be because it also has 100% lemon and lime juices in it, too. In addition to apple cider vinegar, there is also organic ginger to help balance the flavor.
The company’s enterprising founder, Lauren Whatley, wanted to build a company that offered a sustainable and healthy product that is not expensive. She believes that small changes in your regular habits and behavior can make a big difference for your well-being. For years, Whatley was creating her own wellness shots using cayenne pepper and ginger, which is what motivated her to bottle these for others to take advantage of to boost their health.
There are no added sugars or sweeteners to her formula, which can sometimes be the case with other products that add unnecessary calories. Raw apple cider vinegar, in general, is shown to help reduce hunger cravings, which paired with exercise can help you lose weight, too.
So what is in this tiny liquid shot that delivers so many health benefits? There’s a lot packed into that small bottle including anti-microbials, probiotics, amino acids, and antioxidants that all work toward healthier and more energetic functioning. Another benefit is that it can lead to healthier and brighter skin if taken on a regular basis as well as to help fight free radicals.
I tried this for several days in a row and did notice a more alert feeling. It was not the same type of buzz that you might get after several cups of coffee plus it comes without the heavy heartbeat typically associated with lots of caffeine.
Perfect for travelers
When we are able to get back to our normal travel routines, I get excited about any type of wellness product that I can fit into my carry-on bag when traveling. These wellness shots are sealed with a label on the outside as well as an interior cover to keep anything from leaking. Most importantly, they are in 2 ounce bottles that fit easily into a TSA-approved plastic bag to take onto an airplane.
Science and nutritional studies have shown that these ingredients have proven health benefits. Just like I might buy a specialized cup of coffee or energy-boosted smoothie on a daily basis, this is a rather inexpensive way to get similar health ingredients to keep your body functioning at and looking its best.
An expansion of flavors might be an interesting way to increase variety. Overall, this is a great gift for those on the road often especially when trying to boost your immune system. It is easy to overlook balanced nutrition while traveling, which can have a domino effect on our health.
These convenient detoxification shots are available online from The Good Glow’s website for a seven pack (good for one week) for $22. They also come in 14 and 28-bottle packs. For those that want a regular subscription, there is a 10 percent discount on larger shipments. Like the proverbial apple, a wellness shot a day can help keep the doctor away.
