Key Ingredients

So what makes this drink the perfect sip for moms? We’ve to bundled the best ingredients in this cooler to fuel your motherhood. Tag along to hear all about it.

Orange Juice

The typical glass of orange juice contains more than the recommended daily value of vitamin C. For pregnant and nursing moms especially, vitamin C should be a diet staple as it nourishes and hydrates the body.

A daily dose of vitamin C has incredible benefits, including the promotion of collagen growth and repair; you’ll notice the benefits of this in your skin and joints. Not only will your body be glowing from the outside, but also you’ll feel good on the inside since vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that protects cells from damage and helps the body fight off infections. All of this — plus a fruity and tropical flavor? — sign this mama up!

Turmeric

In addition to the orange juice, our “yellow drink,” gets its sunny hue from turmeric. This spice delivers more than just flavor and color, though. Turmeric has major benefits for your body and brain too  —so many that we’ve decided to list the top perks of consuming turmeric for you here:

  • Contains anti-inflammatory agents
  • Aids in digestion
  • Delivers antioxidant properties
  • Balances hormones
  • Boosts immunity

Cinnamon

This delicious spice adds sweetness, without unnecessary sugar, to our golden drink. Not only does cinnamon taste delicious without any sweetener, it even lowers blood sugar levels! High blood sugar may cause headaches, fatigue, or can be a sign of even more serious conditions like diabetes. Thanks to the healing characteristics of cinnamon, you’ll be able to savor this cooler without putting your blood sugar levels at risk.

Cinnamon is also known to have powerful medicinal properties and has been used across the globe for this reason. The seasoning may boost metabolism, aid digestion, and even promote youthful looking skin.

Fennel

The fennel plant encompasses a range of benefits from building bone strength to lowering blood pressure to supporting the immune system — and even promoting lactation. With estrogen-like qualities, fennel improves milk supply and balances hormones.

Pssst.. If you want an extra lactation boost, pair this drink with our Majka Lactation Bites for a yummy and nutritious snack!
