I am a sucker for targeted advertising on my social media. I am the type of girl who clicks on the sponsored post in my Instagram feed and is immediately sucked in. Indie beauty brands? Sure. Cute studded earrings? Of course. It should come as no surprise that I fell for Dirty Lemon, a beverage company with a cult following, taking the influencers and Instagram by storm.
At it’s core, Dirty Lemon is a beverage company. At this point, you’re probably wondering what’s inside these Instagrammable bottles and what has millennials going nuts. While Dirty Lemon has several flavors, at it’s core, ingredients include purified water, lemon juice, and other ingredients that change depending on what flavor you choose (more to come below). The brand suggests drinking one bottle daily for optimal results.
Take a peek at the ones I tried below. And if you’re ever in NYC, the brand opened their first brick-and-mortar in Tribeca in September.
You never forget your first. I tried the +charcoal first because it’s a pretty trendy ingredient these days. It tastes delicious; if you like lemon in your water, this would be up your alley. The brand suggests drinking +charcoal after your heaviest meal. It will help calm the stomach, reduce bloating and support liver and kidney function.
I’ve recently been trying to cut back on my coffee intake because it’s been making my stomach hurt like heck in the morning. +ginseng arrived at a great time. Ginseng was added to this bad boy because it’s shown to support a decrease in blood sugar and cholesterol while increasing your body’s metabolism of sugar. This helps improve memory and cognition. Drink one (or more) of these throughout the day for optimal results.
You’ve got your anti-aging creams and now you have your anti-aging beverage. +rose works to boost the body’s ability to fight stress, improve energy and support a healthy digestive system. More importantly, +rose include trans-resveratrol, an antioxidant that is believed to be one of the strongest protectors against symptoms associated with aging.
Full transparency: I hate matcha. So I passed this along to my roommate who happily obliged in drinking this one for me (she liked it). If you do like matcha, this beverage helps elevate metabolism and increase fat burn. It also provides energy since matcha has caffeine. Drink this in the morning for a boost that will last until lunch.
Magnesium works to calm and rose water works to hydrate all while you sleep with this one. Drink it before bed to achieve a sense of calm and restfulness overnight. I drink this right before I go down to bed — and I didn’t wake up during the night once! For those who know me, this is huge as I am an inherently restless sleeper.
If you’re in the market for a yummy (and trendy) new drink, give Dirty Lemon a shot. The beverages can be catered to what you want and need and they taste good, too.
