This Alkalising Citrus Powder is Your Perfect Winter Pick-Me-Up

Feeling extra tired and less radiant in these colder months? You’re not alone! Shorter, darker days mean less sunlight and extra melatonin production (the sleep hormone), which makes us feel tired more often. We may also notice dull, dehydrated or red skin thanks to cold temperatures and dry air, which can make us feel like our skin is ageing faster than ever. If you’re wanting to give your skin, energy, immunity and gut-health a much needed boost, try this citrus powder elixir, made from 100% natural ingredients and full of nutrients.

Kiki Health Alkaline Infusion powder is packed with vitamins and alkalising minerals, which have a “neutralising” effect on the body, as well as providing benefits for immunity, energy levels, digestive function and supporting healthy skin, hair and nails. This citrus-tasting powder is packed with minerals calcium, magnesium and potassium together with digestive support from chicory root and natural Vitamin C from organic fruits. But how exactly do all these ingredients work together to help us look and feel our best? We delve into the benefits below…

Why natural Vitamin C?

We all know about the benefits of taking Vitamin C in winter months, to help boost our immune system and protect us from those pesky colds and flus, and we also know it’s great for our skin. But did you know studies have shown that synthetic vitamins (many of those sold in pharmacies and supermarkets) are actually 50 to 70% less biologically active in our bodies than natural vitamins? An easy solution to this is often to eat more fruits and vegetables, although due to modern agricultural methods, many of our imported fruits (oranges, for example) are ripened with artificial light and contain low levels of nutrients. Kiki Health Alkaline Infusion uses rich natural Vitamin C sources, from pure lemon juice powder and Acerola cherry, giving 126mg per serving. This makes it easy to get your recommended daily dose of 75mg of Vitamin C per day!

What are alkalising minerals?

Most modern, western diets are considered acidic, due to large amounts of sugar, dairy, grains and meat, all of which contain low levels of minerals including calcium, magnesium and potassium. Although eating more fruits and vegetables can help with balancing these acidic foods, many are mineral-depleted due to modern farming methods and soils with less nutrients than in the past. Studies have shown that increasing your intake of alkalising minerals is associated with a number of improved health outcomes. Calcium works to maintain strong bones, magnesium supports muscle and nerve function, and potassium helps regulates blood pressure and water retention. All of this, in effect, can have incredible benefits on our energy, strength and immunity.

How can inulin help boost my health?

Another powerful ingredient in this powder is natural inulin (from natural chicory root), which has been shown to improve digestive and gut health. The fibre from this plant is associated with a number of digestion benefits, including acting as a prebiotic to feed the good bacteria in your gut, aiding bowel movements, improving blood sugar control and supporting weight loss.
