Erbology Plant-Based Nutrition

*contains gifted products.

Introduction

Erbology reached out to me about their plant-based, organic products to promote health using natural ingredients. If you have been following my blog for a while now you will know I have been eating a vegan diet since May 2018 and I have seen a huge improvement in my health and energy levels since then. I really believe that how you fuel your body is so important and I was thankful that Erbology was able to provide me with a selection of their products to try and review.

Products Overview

Below you will find a collage of photos I took of the products Erbology sent me including their Organic Aronia Shots, Organic Aloe Vera Juice Shots, Organic Bergamot Shots, Organic Sea Buckthorn Shots and Organic Activated Coconut Cacao Balls (left to right in the photos). I have tried shots like these before however the ones I have had were typically ginger (including chilli in some of them) and beetroot when I needed to boost my immune system. I use shots like these when I feel like I am coming down with something or have a sore throat to try and nip it in the bud nice and early!

Health Benefits

It was really interesting reading about Erbology and the products on their website including the benefits for each of the ingredients included in the shots. They promote different elements of wellbeing and bodily health which I will go into in a little more detail below. I have to say the Organic Activated Coconut Cacao Balls were absolutely delicious and provided a lovely boost of energy and are the perfect sized snack (there are two in each pack as seen above). I tried the shots by themselves and also by diluting them in water and used them over the course of a week.

Coconut Cacao Balls

These energy balls pack a subtle coconut and cacao flavour and health benefits to your digestive system. Raw Jerusalem artichoke is a source of prebiotic inulin fibre. Activated almonds and sunflower seeds work wonders for your gut. Ideal afternoon or pre-workout snack.

The thing I liked most about the Organic Activated Coconut Cacao Balls is that they only include seven ingredients in total. The packaging clearly labels everything and you know that the energy you are getting is all natural and free from preservatives or added sugars. They include the ingredient raw Jerusalem artichoke (also known as sunroot) which is naturally high in inulin fibre known for its prebiotic properties. Inulin is non-digestible, and through the natural fermentation process inside our bodies, it becomes a healthy intestinal microflora. This in turn promotes digestion and boosts immunity. They taste incredible as well and they are the perfect pick-me-up snack!

Aloe Vera Shot

A shot of aloe vera juice cleanses the toxins away. Rich in acemannan polysaccharide. Take a shot in the morning to keep your body balanced and nourished. Helps your body absorb water, minerals and other nutrients.

The Organic Aloe Vera Juice Shots is my favourite of the bunch. It has a subtle flavour and a slight earthy taste to it. It’s a light and smooth shot with more of a watery consistency than the other shots in this post. When you dilute it in water it is even more subtle and I really enjoy this to keep me hydrated on a warm day. Aloe has cleansing and alkalising properties which helps keep your body balanced. This shot also contains high concentrations of acemannan polysaccharide which has positive health benefits for the immune and digestive systems, such as improving overall cellular metabolism and aiding in the absorption of water, minerals and nutrients. What’s not to love about that?!

Bergamot Shot

Boost collagen production, support immunity and revive your senses with pure bergamot juice. Rich in vitamin C. Source of valuable polyphenols. Flavour your water or enjoy straight.

The Organic Bergamot Shots have a bit of a sharper taste than the aloe ones but it definitely feels like it is doing good! Again, this can be enjoyed in fruit juice, diluted or in one of the recipes on Erbology‘s website. The bergamot is extracted from the fresh fruit, providing a powerful citrus booster to remain rich in bio-active flavonoids and vitamin C, playing a key role in collagen synthesis. With this shot I tried it by itself and diluted in a large glass of water to drink alongside my breakfast.

Sea Buckthorn Shot

Sea buckthorn is the daily boost you’ve been searching for. High in vitamin C, for maximum performance and agility. Source of rare omega-7 and beta-carotene essential for your vision. Enjoy straight or mix with water.

The Organic Sea Buckthorn Shots are packed with omega-7 fatty acids, supporting cardiovascular health and metabolism. It also has vitamin C which boosts immunity which is my favourite feature of this shot. I usually would opt for a shot like this if I am feeling like I have a cold or other sickness coming on as I find the natural boost of vitamin C avoids me having to use any medicines. I much prefer to combat sickness with health foods like this as a preventative. Fun fact, I haven’t taken over the counter drugs like paracetamol or ibuprofen in over two years!

Aronia Shot

Rediscover your natural glow. Aronia berries are an awesome source of zest and a powerful skin tonic. Rich in anthocyanins that help protect your body from the damage caused by free radicals. Enjoy one shot per day for beautiful skin.

Erbology.co

The Organic Aronia Shots have a strong berry taste to them and it is a smooth shot which packs a punch of flavour. I tried this by itself as well as diluting it in water like the others (if you prefer to mask the flavour of any of these shots you could easily do this by adding them to fruit juice or a smoothie). The aronia berries contain a multitude of nutrients to help your skin and overall wellbeing.

Summary

The shots definitely pack a punch as they are a concentrated way of consuming the organic ingredients to help your body. I found that when I diluted them in a glass of water this helped me enjoy them over a longer period of time as a drink in the morning with my breakfast. Erbology also has some recipes that you can try on their website including food dishes and smoothies.

  1. Wow. Thorough article. The activated coconut cacao balls look especially intriguing. I didn’t know much about Erbology before I read this article. I feel like there is much credence to the observations that you made.
