MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Minneapolis-based functional beverage company and the nation's top producer of immune-boosting probiotic juice shots,So Good So You, has bottled happiness with its newest blend, "Happy." The organic blood orange guava cold-pressed juice shot is powered by ashwagandha, a powerful adaptogen that helps the body regulate its functions, including mood and mental clarity, along with saffron, a powerful antioxidant known as the world's most expensive spice, and the sunshine vitamin, Vitamin D.
Awareness around mood-boosting, functional ingredients is growing. According to Mintel, only four percent of Americans are consuming food and beverages made with adaptogens, but a 78 percent increase in Google searches suggests people are curious about the benefits. In addition to ashwagandha and saffron, "Happy" is packed with 100 percent of the recommended daily value of Vitamin D3, one billion CFUs of probiotics clinically proven to support digestive and immune health and antioxidant-rich saffron, which helps boost the feel-good hormone serotonin. Studies have shown saffron can help fight depression and reduce inflammation and oxidative stress.
"Wellness is top of mind for everyone right now, including our customers who need a mental health boost amidst the ongoing pandemic and all the associated stressors," said Rita Katona, So Good So You co-founder and executive chair. "As with all of our shots' carefully sourced and selected ingredients, Happy harnesses the power of high-quality adaptogens, ashwagandha, the inflammation-busting antioxidants of golden saffron, along with Vitamin D, to pack a mood-boosting punch whenever you need it."
Adaptogens of all kinds are key ingredients in So Good So You's R&D repertoire. In addition to "Happy," the company recently launched a new blueberry clementine flavor of its best-selling Immunity shot, powered by three different types of adaptogenic and immune system-boosting mushrooms.
