Summers are here, and with it, comes the blazing Indian sun - reminding us that the Glucon D sun-sucking-energy ad we saw years back is still just as accurate.

With the heat sapping our energy each second that we're outside, it's more important than ever to stay healthy, hydrated, and have a nutritional diet: after all, the summer plays havoc with more than just our inner health. Your glowing skin and healthy hair soon start resembling that of a wight brought back by the Night King. Or a sleepy vampire.

If you're a millennial on-the-go, who needs some quick, easy fixes to meet your nutritional needs and make sustainable healthy lifestyle changes, this list is for you!

Amla-ving it!

Gooseberry or Amla, tops our list of superfoods in all healthcare categories. From boosting immunity to brightening the skin, Amla does it all.

The tiny fruit is packed with Vitamin C and iron, among a host of other nutrients. It works magic on the hair by improving hair texture, fastening hair growth, and slowing down hair greying. Amla also contains tannins, which, when combined with polyphenols, makes the fruit a free radical scavenger. What this means is, it reduces the damage free radicals cause to the cells and thus improves your body's disease-fighting ability. Other known benefits include liver function, brighter skin, lower blood sugar levels and it also prevents jaundice.

Amla grows across the country - but the fruit grows mostly during the winters. To consume it year-round, you can either eat a pickle and preserve it, or if you're not a fan of eating it raw, you can consume it as a shot.

This amla detox drink can treat a wide range of health issues and offers an all-natural detox cleanse factor. This set of amla drink shots is good for six days of all-natural goodness. For best results, drink this body detox juice regularly for at least three weeks!

I-love-era Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is the gooey superhero that's been helping many generations of Indians survive brutal summers. Widely used in Ayurveda, it has a host of benefits - there's a reason why so many Aloe Vera beauty products exist in the market.

You can use the sap inside the leaves on your skin to soothe sunburn, cure acne, or even as a light toner before putting your makeup on. Mix it with some olive oil and make a hair mask, before rinsing it out for some smooth, gorgeous hair.

Pure aloe vera juice is a great antioxidant and it maintains a healthy structure of the blood vessels, both of which are vital in diabetic care. Start your Ayurveda journey and enjoy a younger-looking you with Akiva's Aloe Vera shots.

Activated Char-cool

The most widely used detox formula in the world, activated charcoal has the unique ability to not just detoxify the body, but also to rejuvenate and nourish it. For those who are overweight and obese, activated charcoal also doubles as a very effective weight loss juice. In addition to a healthy diet and proper exercise, regular consumption of this Vedic juice minimizes cravings by giving the body everything it needs to feel nourished and balanced.

While these ayurvedic wellness juice shots may be small in size, they are nonetheless big in nutritional impact. No mixing required for this ready to drink metabolic boost shot (all you need to do is shake well and gulp), so there are no longer excuses for slipping behind on your daily quota of vitamins. Tasty, portable and fun, our nutrient-rich healthy juice shots are the easiest way to elevate your health today!
