You are what you drink, so while it may be fun to spend the summer as a frosty pina colada, refresh with a few new beauty beverages before that colorful umbrella of yours starts to fade.
Ambien might make you feel like Sleeping Beauty — till you’ve night-eaten a bowl of condiments and your Himalayan has bangs. ReBloom, with its combo of vitamins and old-school restlessness remedies (chamomile, lavender, valerian root, and melatonin), lets you snooze and wake with the world as you left it.
Take it down a notch with M13 Calm/Detox. Packed with schisandra fruit (a sedative in Chinese medicine), cleansing chrysanthemum flower, proantioxidant and anti-free radical beetroot, and other herbs and floral extracts, it’s the anti-energy drink in the Functional Juice family.
A powerful cocktail, two ways. Straight up: The mango, pomegranate, and acai in Votre Vu SnapDragon mingles with green, white, and red teas, plus daily vitamins and doses of collagen, aloe, foti, ginkgo biloba, and baobab fiber to nourish your skin. Spiked: You get the same benefits, with a buzz.
Cooler Cleanse, the much-talked-about veg- and fruit-based juicing program, is launching national delivery next week. Go for a three- or five-dayer; down six hydraulically pressed, nutrient-dense, enzyme-rich beverages; and forget about food for a while (or at least try to).
Timing is everything. Aviara’s 24-hour system starts with eye-opening, mood-boosting, anti-inflammatory AM, thanks to the likes of resveratrol, camu camu, and Panax ginseng, and ends with PM, a sleepy-time sipper full of relaxing herbs, detoxifying additions (milk thistle), and immunity boosters (wolfberry).
Crusty? Sluggish? Wired? Tired? There’s a Functionalab Nutrient Tonic cure for what ails you. Fueled by specially balanced blends of phytonutrients, polyphenols, antioxidants, botanical extras, vitamins, minerals, and herbs, each of the four offerings packs a serious health punch in a tiny, 60-milliliter serving.
