Health drink company shine+, is leading the way in the world of drinkable nootropics, launching nationally a new 400ml range this week.
Following a successful trial, the new range will now be available in the 650+ Caltex Star Mart stores across the country.
Shine+ combines natural and functional ingredients that have been shown to aid mental clarity and concentration. Whilst many assume nootropics are only synthetic, shine+ contains only natural, earth grown botanicals that have been used for hundreds of years with no artificial additives, no added sugar, ensuring both safety and health benefits.
A hot topic amongst wellness trends this year, the nootropics industry has risen steadily since the 1970’s, providing an alternative to energy drinks, coffee or other caffeinated beverages. From a biohacking method only seen amongst the pioneers in Silicon Valley to now mainstream appeal amongst students, professionals and the health conscious, the market once valued at USD 2.3 Billion in 2015, is expected to reach $3 billion by 2024
The key functional ingredients and natural nootropics in the shine+ 400ml range are Ginkgo Biloba, Turmeric, Green Tea, L-Theanine, Green Coffee Beans and natural B Vitamins. The new range comes in three strengths – each differing in the amount of green coffee beans and equivalent caffeine. The combination of ingredients ensures sustained mental clarity and concentration without the well-known ‘caffeine crash’ or sugar crash.
“After we saw the positive response to our first drink, the 110ml smart shot, we asked our fans what they wanted to see next. The two things we heard consistently was ‘make it bigger’ and ‘make something for the fridges’. I’m humbled by the response to the 400ml, it has been even more positive than we originally planned for,” comments CEO Steve Chapman, who founded the Sydney born start up in 2016.
With a wild tropical flavour, the 400ml range is carbonated and served chilled. The range joins the original 110ml version, with a ginger lemon-lime flavour that can be consumed at room temperature or chilled.
The original shine+ 110ml shot that was launched 18 months ago is now available in over 2,000 stores across Australia including Woolworths Metro, IGA, Harris Farm, On The Run and Zambrero Mexican restaurants among hundreds of cafes, grocers and pharmacies. The new 400ml range will be rolling out into existing stockists over the coming months following the exclusivity in Caltex Star Mart.
