Meet Poppi and Olipop!
Two of the Healthiest, most delicious Drinks at Sickles Red Bank!
In recent years we’ve seen an increase in healthy drinks around the globe. At Sickles, we’ve been following that trend for a while whether it is specialty juices or popular kombuchas, these drinks are great for your gut. These drinks are on the cutting edge and are definitely intimidating traditional sodas and pops. Right now at Sickles Red Bank, we have two of the most exciting healthy drinks one can find! Poppi and Olipop, the first being a prebiotic and the latter being probiotic. Let’s talk about what those mean.
Prebiotics are specialized plant fibers. They stimulate the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut.
Prebiotics are found in many fruits and vegetables, especially those that contain complex carbohydrates, such as fiber and resistant starch. These carbs aren’t digestible by your body, so they pass through the digestive system to become food for the bacteria and other microbes. All this helps your body’s ecosystem! We’re telling you this because Poppi is a wonderful Prebiotic Soda that happens to be delicious!
Poppi is the creation of the husband and wife team Allison and Stephen Ellsworth. It combines fresh fruit juice with the prebiotic powerhouse apple cider vinegar (ACV), to create a soda that not only tastes amazing but it provides real health benefits. Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is a centuries-old homeopathic remedy. Singers will use it to take care of their vocals! ACV is strong so Poppi uses natural sweeteners and fresh fruit to make them taste less overpowering. Poppi takes great care of your skin (it can even glow as a result of this fizzy drink!), it’s good for your cholesterol, boosts your metabolism, works as an energy booster and is an overall detox powerhouse!
Probiotics are different from prebiotics in that they contain live organisms, usually specific strains of bacteria that directly add to the population of healthy microbes in your gut! The most popular probiotic food is yogurt. You can find it in one of our favorite beverages. Olipop!
Olipop was created by Ben Goodwin and David Lester with a shared vision of a healthier, tastier future. This leads them to Olipop, a crafted and healthy tonic. Created with the help of leading human gut microbiome pioneers. Our own single-cell organisms armies protect us against germs, break down our meals, release energy and produce vitamins. Olipop helps you keep those single-cell organisms healthy – and does so with classic soda flavors like Root Beer and Cherry Vanilla.
Olipop is available at both stores, Poppi is only at Red Bank for now! Let us know how you like these healthy, fizzy drinks! We love to see shares on social media! Follow us @sicklesmarket @sicklesredbank @bottlesbysickles & @sicklescelebrates
