cucumber mint

cucumber mint

this just might be the world's healthiest drink. nutritionally equivalent to over 900 cups of blueberries and filled with superstar ingredients like bioavailable Turmeric & elderberry this is one health habit that feels a lot more like a treat. 

1 elderberry
600mg a day of this medicinal plant have been shown to help seriously boost immunity and even expedite recuperation from illness. we put 1000mg in each bottler for good measure.

2 vitamin d
we all know it's important from helping promote healthy inflammation to building strong bones and boosting immunity, it’s a cornerstone of our well being. we put 45% of your daily recommended value so that you're covered.

3 p-terostilbene (tero)
if antioxidants were celebrities, tero would be on the cover of every magazine in the checkout aisle. we have 50mg in each bottle, aka the studied amount needed to help protect your cells from whatever life throws at you.

4 turmacin®
a form of turmeric worth obsessing over. unlike curcumin this is actually bioavailable. studies show it’s so good at reducing inflammation that it alleviates joint pain. happy beings tend to be active so we put 250mg to help you out.

5 egcg
why is white tea good for you? egcg  is why. this micronutrient is a powerful antioxidant that helps activate your white blood cells while giving our tea a slight umami flavor. 35mg got us the perfect balance between function & taste.

plant-based foods like lemongrass are beneficial for our health because they contain phytonutrients called polyphenols

polyphenols (like pterostilbene, egcg & turmeric) help our bodies function by protecting the integrity of our cells, allowing them to support our immune systems, inflammatory systems, and microbiomes. 

our immune system

is dependent on many different cells with different functions + needs. for us to feel our best, our immune systems need all of those cells working hard and working together. 

in happy being® healthy, vitamin d and egcg help activate different immune cells like white blood cells, while elderberry helps coordinate those immune cells, keeping our immune systems in sync.

healthy vs. chronic inflammation

a small amount of inflammation is a good thing. in fact, we need it. but when inflammation becomes consistent (aka chronic) it's a different story. chronic inflammation is a vicious feedback loop that - instead of healing our body - hinders our near & long-term health. 

in happy being® healthy, tero and turmacin® each play a vital role in fostering a healthy inflammatory response by combatting oxidative stress and reducing inflammatory markers like tnf-alpha and il-6

no gut healthy, no glory

gut health is determined by our microbiome, which is a diverse community of beneficial bacteria and problematic pathogens. our age & environment affect our microbiome, but diet is most influential

in happy being® health there are polyphenols, like egcg, that promote gut health by exerting prebiotic-like effects, enhancing the gorwth of good bacteria & inhibiting the growth of pathogens.
