What is it?
Nature's vegan alternative to honey, turbocharged with special medicinal herbs.
Orange, cinnamon & ginger infused raw Agave nectar with 500mg of organically grown California Orange whole plant extract.
Flavonoid antioxidants in oranges provide anti inflammatory, antiviral, and antimicrobial benefits. They also defend against oxidative stress.
One medium orange provides four ounces of water. Roughly 60-70% of the human body is made of water, and it’s required for every bodily process.
The fragrance (terpenes) of oranges are regarded as mood boosters.
Cinnamon is a spice that is made from the inner bark of trees botanically known as Cinnamomum.
It has been used as an ingredient throughout history, dating back as far as Ancient Egypt.
It used to be rare and valuable, being regarded as a gift fit for a king.
Gingerol is the main bioactive compound in ginger. It’s responsible for much of ginger’s medicinal properties, including antiviral, antitumour and decongestant.
Agave nectar is a sweetener that you can use as an alternative to sugar.
It’s much sweeter, so you can use less of it for the same effect.
It's more natural than other alternative sweeteners, and is chemical free.
It’s also vegan, so it's an attractive alternative to honey.
Agave is a genus of the Asparagaceae family.
It’s native to several areas of the Americas, including Mexico and the Caribbean.
Agave nectar comes from the blue agave plant as well as Agave americana, which is also known as maguey or the century plant ~ this is the same plant that's used in making tequila.
What's it good for?
Here are some of the benefits of agave:
- low on the glycemic index (GI). If you have diabetes, a low-GI diet may help you control your blood sugar.
- boosts your metabolism. Vitamin B6, which is found in agave, plays a big role in how your body breaks down food, particularly proteins and carbohydrates.
- The juice of an agave plant contains phytonutrients that may have an antioxidant effect.
- relieves depression. Vitamin K and folate in agave syrup may offer mental health benefits. Studies have found higher levels of vitamin K are tied to a lower risk of depression. Folate may also ease symptoms of depression, but research is limited.
- good for your heart. Vitamin B6 helps keep your homocysteine levels low. That protects you from heart disease and stroke.
Hemp contains over 500 naturally occurring organic compounds.
These include flavonoids, phytocannabinoids and terpenes.
Each of these compounds act as an important building block in the body's wellbeing ~ together they work to regulate and maintain a number of physiologic and pathophysiologic processes.
Cinnamon is loaded with powerful antioxidants, such as polyphenols.
It is a warming digestive tonic, which stimulates the peripheral circulation, to help with such conditions as Reynauds Syndrone.

Taken internally for diarrhoea, nausea, gastroenteritis, colds, influenza, hypertension, arthritis, rheumatism, and relieves spasms.
Ginger has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, according to research.
