There are a wide range of health benefits to cutting down your alcohol consumption this season — from improved sleep quality to liver health to weight and mood regulation, but modifying your habits around drinking is easier said than done. For many, alcohol helps to ease stress at the end of the day. For others, a cocktail or a glass of wine is a way to lower their inhibitions and reduce their anxieties in social situations.
Fortunately, there are effective strategies to modify your relationship with alcohol without feeling like you’re missing out or empty handed.
Alternative spirits offer a long-term solution to replace that cocktail or glass(es) of wine in your social life, without giving up the ritual or the effect you crave at the end of the day. This December, we launched our newest offering, Arise, which is infused with adaptogens to create a spirit that stimulates and elevates without the negative effects of alcohol.
Adaptogens are plant substances (often herbs) that have been found to help our bodies manage stress and maintain balance, or homeostasis. In other words, they help us adapt to external stressors. By strengthening our internal systems, adaptogens can promote vitality, stabilize mood, and improve performance and focus.
Our proprietary Arise functional blend contains Suntheanine, Guarana, Moringa, L-Choline, Bitatrate, Panax Ginseng, Vitamin B3, and Vitamin B12. Here’s a breakdown of our ingredients:
High-quality extracts have been carefully sourced to uplift and inspire an outgoing frame of mind. Notes of agave flower, lemon verbena, and black sarawak round out the invigorating herbal citrus profile.
“Created with award-winning mixologist Lynnette Marrero, it [Aplós Arise] includes adaptogens meant to provide a socially lubricating alternative to a cocktail buzz.”
