Powershots from AH to Go

Albert Heijn says it itself, the power shots are for 'the real enthusiast'. At the editorial office we found the shots quite intense, but they are certainly healthy.

There are four different power shots
1. Wheatgrass: Freshly squeezed young blades of grass that grow into wheat. This shot is packed with vitamins, minerals, enzymes and chlorophyll. 10 percent lime juice has been added. Perfect for a detox.

2. Aloe Vera: Has a soothing effect on your stomach and intestines. Aloe vera stimulates the production of elastin and collagen, making this shot also great for beauty lovers.

3. Turmeric: Turmeric has traditionally been known for its anti-inflammatory effect. It was used as a natural remedy for skin inflammations, wounds, muscle pain and menstrual complaints.

4. Ginger: A resistance booster that helps your body get rid of toxins. Ginger is a natural remedy for nausea. Due to the strong taste of ginger, 50 percent fresh apple juice has been added.

You can lengthen the shots
Of course you can knock back a powershot in one go, but that's pretty intense. It's a matter of perseverance, when you drink power shots more often, you get used to the taste. You can also dilute the shots with tea, water or a superjuice.
