What are Functional Ingredients?

We're incredibly excited to introduce Hiyo to our stellar line-up of AF and non-alcoholic beverages. They have an excellent product backed by a great story wrapped in a whole lotta flavor.

Hiyo is a "better-than-alcohol" alternative for the modern drinker. Each batch is mindfully crafted with organic adaptogens, natural nootropics, and functional botanicals to provide the stress-relieving, mood-boosting, "I'm-having-a-blast" feeling that people usually look for in alcohol consumption.

The adaptogens are potent herbs that help your body adapt to the harmful effects of stress. They work by regulating your cortisol levels to keep your body woosahing. You'll find ashwagandha and cordyceps in Hiyo, both of which are plant-based and organic.

Nootropics are compounds that improve cognitive function, mood, creativity, and focus and can be both natural or synthetic. Natural L-theanine and organic lion's mane give Hiyo that clarity boost you're craving.

Lastly, the functional botanicals, or as Hiyo calls them "plants with benefits." Hiyo's dynamic duo of organic ginger and organic turmeric aid in digestion and reduce inflammation.

The unique and evolutionary feeling provided by these ingredients working together is something Hiyo calls “the float.” What a perfect choice for the alcohol-free and sober curious crowd alike!

We don't know about you, but this healthy alternative seems like a slam dunk. Try it for yourself, and let us know what you think @betterrhodes and @drinkhiyo!
