From our tonic trolley (clockwise from left)
1. Pickle juice
This vinegary brine infused with veg juices and packed with potassium, sodium and magnesium is considered a tonic for muscle cramps, stomach troubles, hangovers and heartburn.
2. Carbon lemonade
Activated charcoal, combined with lemon and a sweetener, makes an exotically black-coloured lemonade. For detox, hangovers and bloating.
3. Sap water
The super-hydrator du jour. Typically tapped from birch trees, it boasts hydrating electrolytes, potassium and phytonutrients, plus saponins, to combat cholesterol, eczema and much more.
4. Pea milk
The latest dairy alternative, the thick creamy liquor comes in a variety of flavours alongside plain. High in proteins, omega 3 and calcium.
This barley tea tastes something like liquid toast, but with vitamins and minerals to fight tooth decay, diabetes, cholesterol, even cancer, it’s worth it.
Anti-cancerous fresh turmeric harnessed in a tasty, daily tonic, also containing, variously, tamarind, ginger, galangal, lemongrass, sulfur cinnamon, pandan leaves and honey to sweeten.
7. Water kefir
Made from fermented grains, and with a soda-like fizz, this potion is said to strengthen the immune system and fight bad bacteria.
