(Ad - Gifted) Jamu Wild Water! - Review!

My girls are good at drinking plenty. One sometimes gets bored of water and isn't keen on fizzy pop and the other is a little too keen on the sugary, fizzy pop and doesn't drink enough water! Recently we were sent a selection of some naturally flavoured, gut friendly sparkling drinks which contain no added sugar or artificial sweeteners and are suitable for the whole family to enjoy guilt free from Jamu Wild Water.

Knowing that young people can get bored with water and often want to hydrate with something a bit different the Jamu Wild Water range contains natural fruit flavours, nourishing botanicals and a gentle fizz that makes it suitable for the whole family without compromising on flavour or health.

Jamu Wild Water

The creators of Jamu Wild Water had a nagging feeling that drink options for young people could be so much better. Not least because their own kids would often complain about the lack of choice, especially on trips out or special occasions. It was frustrating that they couldn’t find anything that wasn’t loaded with sugar or artificial sweeteners and additives.

As a trained chef and proud Maori with close ties to the natural world, Tahi knew she could draw on mother nature’s larder to create something young people would enjoy. Better still, parents would be happy for them to drink! Jamu Wild Water was born. With its interesting flavours, lower sweetness profile, and added benefits, it soon became apparent that adults really enjoy Jamu too either on its own or as a mixer with spirits!

Each 250ml serve contains prebiotic plant fibre, which nourishes healthy gut bacteria as well as supports the immune system with Vitamin C and Zinc, whilst being completely free of sugar, artificial sweeteners, additives and preservatives. All of the ingredients are 100% natural.

Dandelion has been used by herbalists for centuries because of its many benefits, including support for the immune system, detoxification and to aid the digestive system.

Marshmallow Root.
Marshmallow Root is an important herb in Ayurvedic Medicine. It has traditionally been used by many cultures to reduce inflammation and sooth irritated cell membranes, thanks to the soothing mucilage it produces. Consisting of polysaccharides, it acts as a prebiotic for gut bacteria.

Chicory Root Inulin.
Inulin is an indigestible plant fibre. It passes through the gut undergoing prebiotic fermentation – a process which feeds the beneficial bacteria in your gut. These helpful bacteria play a role in reducing inflammation, fighting harmful bacteria, and improving mineral absorption. Inulin also supports digestive health by keeping us regular.

Valued most highly by Native Americans for its multiple uses, Echinacea is traditionally used to support immune health and relieve symptoms of cold and flu.

Nettle is traditionally used to relieve inflammation and is a source of Vitamin C, D, K, Zinc and Selenium.

Described by Hippocrates as his ‘Medicine Chest’, Elderberries have been known throughout the centuries to support health in many ways. They are a rich source of Vitamin C and Flavonoids, including the antioxidant, 

The three flavours are available from the Jamu Wild Water website, priced at £20 for a case of 12 x 250ml cans (plus £4.50 shipping.) Choose from a pack containing just one variety or go for the Explorer Pack which contains four of each flavour.

Natural Sparkling Raspberry - boosted with Elderberry and Marshmallow Root Extracts. It is a rich source of Vitamin C and prebiotic fibre, its mellow sweet flavour sparkles with juicy ripe raspberries.

Natural Sparkling Blood Orange - with delicious berry like sweetness of Blood Orange and immune boosting properties of Echinacea, this bright and tangy drop also has chicory root fibre to support digestive health.

 Natural Sparkling Lemon - lively with the pithy green flavour found in lemon skin. Nettle and Dandelion extracts add wild health benefits to our take on ‘lemonade’. Used traditionally to relieve inflammation, boost immunity and aid digestive health.

We really like these drinks, I am not usually a fan of raspberry drinks but that one was my favourite. The three different varieties are refreshing and are full of flavour. The girls liked all of the drinks and they were all gone before I knew it. It is good to know there is an alternative to fizzy, sugary drinks out there for all of the family.

I was sent a selection of Jamu Wild Water free of charge in exchange for this blog post.
