On Trial: Vive Organic Immunity Boost Shots
Tester: Danielle St. Pierre, avid fan of spicy wellness shots
The Brief: As someone who lives in busy, congested, germ-laden New York City, one of the most important parts of my daily health regimen — especially in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic — is an immunity-boosting wellness shot.
Generally, I like my wellness shots to be as spicy as humanly possible, loaded with superfood ingredients like digestion-aiding ginger, anti-inflammatory turmeric, and black pepper — the low-key "king of spices." In addition to my daily multivitamin, skin and hair supplements, and apple cider vinegar gummies, I also take one incredibly potent wellness shot: Vive Organic Immunity Boost.
With the mission of connecting people to the root of wellness through their line of organic, vegan, and non-GMO functional shots, California-based health brand Vive is all about plant power. Formulated to provide maximum wellness in one small bottle, Vive shots deliver the kick your body needs through potent, 2-ounce blends.
The brand has several functional shot varieties to choose from, like Energy + Focus (their "brainpower blend") and ultra hydrating Electro Restore. Designed by doctors, these wellness shots contain no added sugars, and are made with 100% natural ingredients.
After trying the full line of functional shots, Vive's Immunity Boost immediately became my favorite of the bunch. With a short, clean, organic ingredient list that includes ginger root juice, turmeric root juice, lemon juice, echinacea juice, and ground black pepper (which works to activate turmeric in the body), these shots provide the ultimate proactive immune defense combination.
While these shots won't completely prevent you from getting a virus or common cold that's going around (including COVID-19), they will boost your body's immune system thanks to their superfood ingredient list. Think of these shots as a natural, better-for-you wellness shot that can be used as a preventative care step before you feel a cold cruising in.
Fair warning: These shots are not here to play when it comes to their heat factor. Each shot contains the equivalent of about a 2-inch knob of ginger, juiced, which means these are burn-the-back-of-your-throat spicy. In the best way. If you're new to ginger, you may want to have some cold water nearby to sip after downing one of these bad boys.
I take one shot every morning to fire up my digestive and immune systems, and my body instantly feels warmed up for the day.
Closing Argument: If you’re looking to level up your wellness routine — or even if you’re feeling a little sluggish or hungover — you need these spicy shots from Vive in your life.
Try the full line — but start with their best-selling Immunity Boost.
