More on the hemp shot behind this grapefruit blackberry mocktail
Lumen makes regenerative hemp elixirs that are clean and simple solutions to getting hemp into your diet with a pill or drops. They cold-press the hemp leaves and deliver you the closest-to-nature form of hemp you can get outside of eating the plant itself! They combo the hemp with adaptogenic herbs, anti-inflammatory roots like turmeric and never use any synthetic or chemical solvents! Who’s feeling a hemp shot coming on? I know I am digging it!
Science, it’s what I like
First, let’s talk about grapefruit. This citrus fruit is an amazing addition to your lifestyle since it is so high in vitamin C and lycopene. Did you know vitamin C is for more than your immune system? It is! It helps with muscle synthesis, appetite and so much more. Lycopene protects against free radical damage. Another great part of grapefruit is the pectin which resulted in lower LDL levels (the small cholesterol) in the studies below (2). Juice it and put it in a glass jar in your fridge, it retains 98% of its vitamin C for up to one week.
Next, we have to dig into the details of blackberries; the star of this grapefruit blackberry mocktail. They packed with vitamins that you should consider making a regular part of your diet. Medicinally, they are used as an anti-diarrheal, anti-cancer and anti-diabetic (1). They boost immune health and are filled with both soluble and insoluble fiber. This means you will get that poop moving. Woo for detoxification!
