Why Fruit Is So Good for You

It's true: fruit is one of the healthiest things you can eat. Even for diabetics, if you eat fruit carefully (some fruits are high in natural sugars) it provides fresh nutrients from nature you can't get anywhere else.
We use fruit as the sweetener for Super Natural green tea shots because it's the most natural and healthy way to sweeten our extremely potent fresh green tea extract. (Without the fruit juice, it would make you gag-- it's way too strong to drink straight.)

Fresh Concord grape juice provides a rich source of resveratrol; blueberries and acai berries are a great source of antioxidant polyphenols, fiber, vitamins and manganese; and pomegranate juice contains tannins, anthocyanins, and ellagic acid, three powerful natural antioxidants.

Dragon Pearl's Super Natural green tea shots provide a full serving of fruit-- blueberries, purple grapes, acai berries and pomegranate juice-- some of the most nutri-delicious berryberry vitaminicious sweet juice, providing only 45 calories (9g fruit sugar) per serving.

Making the Strongest Green Tea

Here's a quick video clip of part of the manufacturing process-- one of the last steps, which is packing the finished bottles into 12-packs.

The process takes about 36 hours to complete, starting with brewing the green tea with as many leaves as we can get into the water and infusing the tea into purified water until it's a dark brown concentrate.

Then the fresh-brewed super-tea is pasteurized, mixed with fresh blueberry, purple grape, pomegranate, and acai berry juices.

The supershots are finally flash-pasteurized and aseptically bottled. (More about how the tea shots are brewed)

Nutritionist Warns Against Energy Drinks

Dragon Pearl's Tea Shots Featured as a Healthy Alternative

Nutritionist Aaron Snyder was featured on San Diego's Channel 6 yesterday. He discussed energy drinks and energy shots with reporter Marc Bailey, and talked about the effects of too much caffeine on the body, especially diabetics.

Aaron says that drinks like Monster, Red Bull and 5-Hour Energy are basically a rip-off that give you way more caffeine than needed to stimulate the body, and make you crave sweet and fatty foods.

He also discussed Dragon Pearl's Super Natural Tea Shots, saying that three cups of green tea is the ideal "lift" for the human body, providing the maximum dose of natural caffeine for humans. Three cups of organic green tea provides a lift all day long, without interfering with sleep because it allows you to get tired by expending your energy instead of countering over-stimulation with drugs.

Aaron also discussed his new book, The New Diabetes Prescription.
