Natural Products Expo

8 rejuvenating wellness shots at Natural Products Expo West 2018

Potent potables designed to improve gut health, slay colds and keep energy up throughout the day.

Shots, shots, shots!

No, this isn't a frat party. We're talking shots full of non-alcoholic spicy ginger juice, apple cider vinegar and more. In addition to fermented beverages, sparkling waters, and RTD coffee and tea spotted on the Natural Products Expo West 2018 show floor, single-use wellness shots were popular, too. Designed to be consumed in one sitting (or in one gulp), these powerful mini-bottles featured efficacious doses of adaptogenic herbs, ayurvedic ingredients (think turmeric, black pepper and ginger), detoxifying activated charcoal, lemon and powerful zings of flavor.

Here are a few notable options that will give the original shot, 5-Hour Energy, a run for its money.
