SUPERCHARGE ENERGY SHOT GINGER ROOT
This revitalising energy shot is packed with some of nature’s best pick-me-ups including:
- Green tea – is rich in caffeine as well as a range of protective antioxidants providing a health-enhancing buzz.
- Ginger – with gingerol as one of its main ingredients is well known for helping to reduce pain and inflammation, including post-exercise muscle pain; and a range of digestive problems, especially nausea. It also adds a delicious flavour to the shot.
- Capsicum/chilli peppers – with capsaicin as one of its star ingredients providing the ‘fire and the burn’ of this shot while also helping to relieve painful and inflammatory conditions.
Caffeine, delivered naturally with additional health-promoting phytonutrients, is a great revitaliser. It improves one’s mood and increases alertness, concentration and endurance, reducing feelings of fatigue.
And, as you cannot make energy without fuel, SuperCharge Energy Shot also contains a small amount of pure sugar (equivalent to one teaspoon of sugar or 5% of the daily recommended sugar intake for adults) to generate energy quickly but without overloading your system.
McNab’s SuperCharge Energy shots are free of artificial colourings and flavourings.
