As the title states, new year, new drink game plan baby! I have to admit that not much effort was put into goal setting for 2017 except for my overall health. I first started with a mind cleanse--getting rid of not helpful thoughts and toxic energy people. In the health intake department, I'm aiming to up my wellness drink game. Yes! I don't just want a healthy drink, I want a drink that digs into my cells. So, when I heard about Naturopathica, I made it my first 2017 stop.
As I walked into their Manhattan location, it gave me the feeling of a lab. If you follow us on Snapchat: thedemureist, without a doubt this was in mind taking into consideration the bleekers they where mixing my drink in. Somehow, that also brought highschool memories. Naturopathica is an all around self-care haven from organic and natural skin care products, spa and a Vitality Bar.
The drink menu is made out of tonics and elixirs with added tinctures, a liquid extract from herbs that are used for healing. The options vary from skin care, detox, gut care, energy, muscle and joint care among some. I ordered the Skin Radiance which contains apple, pear, coconut water, tamarind, greens, basil, mint, aloe vera and match with the burdock radiant skin tincture. The resulting color of the tonic was green. It was a little too sweet for me--trying to cut down on sugar intake too. Aside the sugar, it was delicious! Now, the star of this tonic was the tincture. It's a blood purifier and it rapidly cleanses and removes impurities. I didn't ask but will next time if they sell the tinctures separately, this way I can use at home and control the sugar of my tonic. Cheers to a new healthy year!
