The trifecta of health – diet, exercise, sleep – is the key to physical and mental success. A healthy diet can be supported by cutting down on overcooked foods and excess animal protein. This last statement may raise some questions: what will I eat? how will I fill my stomach? After all, meat has always been eaten as part of every meal and we have survived!
According to the dietary recommendations of nutritionists in Estonia, 10–20% of daily energy intake should come from protein. Proteins are necessary for the body, but they should be more plant-based (lentils, beans, nuts, seeds, cereals). Too much animal protein puts a strain on the kidneys. When your body is unable to cleanse itself properly, other health problems follow. Wösel’s health shots made from fresh fruit support healthy eating and digestion.
Use the smart app
You may have wondered; how do I know if I’m eating enough protein or if I’m consuming too much? Programmes and apps in which you can write down your daily menu are helpful tools. One option is the Lifesum programme, into which you can upload your daily menu. The programme calculates your daily calorie intake, water consumption as well as micro- and macronutrients. You can also add your own recipes to the program.
However, paying attention to diet alone will not get you very far either. I performed an unscientific experiment with my body, where I engaged in a lot of sports, ate a healthy diet, but had very little time for rest. The result was one that I would not recommend to others. And recovery is not just a matter of a week or two, it can take months or even years.
Balance and a sense of well-being
At Wösel, the whole team uses our products on a daily basis, and at least one good sip of our Health Shots is enjoyed every day, because even we have days when a proper meal is replaced by a cup of coffee and a tempting pastry, allowing the busy working day to continue. Some like Sea Buckthorn-Orange, others raspberry-ginger or ginger-lemon… There’s no arguing about taste and it’s not that important. It’s all about balance and a sense of well-being.
Wösel Health Shots have been developed specifically to provide healthy and nutritious food. In the case of the Health Shots developed in collaboration with TalTech researchers, it was important for us to find the best plants and taste combinations that contain as many vitamins, minerals and antioxidants as possible. The Wösel product range includes three different flavours of health shots.

A powerful stimulator
Ginger-Lemon-Honey Health Shots are fiery in nature, and after ingestion even the biggest sleepyheads won’t sleep a wink. Based on our own experience, we can say that this shot is a great companion during long car journeys. It keeps your eyes on the road and your mind fresh. The ginger in the shot boosts immunity, strengthens the body’s defences, supports intestinal function, helps fight bacteria and provides instant energy. Honey goes well with ginger, also possessing strong antibacterial and antiviral properties. Find the Ginger Shot (also available as a 12-pack) here.
A true antioxidant
The Sea Buckthorn-Orange-Turmeric Health Shot is the mildest tasting of our shots, although the content is nothing but wholesome and, of course, the beautiful colour – created by the combination of sea buckthorn, cucumber, and orange – is simply irresistible. Sea buckthorn is rich in vitamin C and a variety of B vitamins, which reduce fatigue, ward off stress and increase the body’s resistance. The curcumin found in turmeric has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, but to enhance its effects in the body, it needs to be supplemented with the piperine found in pepper, which is why cayenne pepper has been added to the Sea Buckthorn Shot. Honey has been used for medicinal purposes since time immemorial – it contains over 400 beneficial compounds, such as organic acids, enzymes, phenolic compounds, amino acids, minerals, vitamins, and more. Find the Orange Shot (also available as a 12-pack) here.
A surprising taste sensation
The Raspberry-Apple-Ginger Health Shot is the most sour-tasting of our shots, as no honey or other sweeteners have been added. Suitable for vegetarians and those for whom keeping a low-calorie diet is important. The shot is made from fruits that are rich in antioxidants, flavonoids, and vitamins. Apples contain valuable vitamins and plenty of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium and fibres – all of which are necessary for the body to function normally. Raspberries lower cholesterol levels, are good for the heart and blood vessels, and can even prevent cancer from developing. Ginger helps speed up digestion, has anti-inflammatory properties and relieves (joint) pain. Find the Raspberry Shot (also available as a 12-pack) here.
All Wösel health shots are unpasteurised, made from cold-pressed fruit (to preserve all the beneficial properties) and have no added sugar or other additives.
GOOD IDEA: If the taste of the shot seems too strong, dilute the shot with water or natural juice. Preparing a healthy soft drink is easy.
