Humble Warrior Sri Lankan Winter Wellness

28th December 2023

A new sparkling wellness drink, inspired by Sri Lankan “plant alchemy” is now available.

Unlike “added vitamin” brands which often using synthetic lab-made powders to fortify their drinks, humble warrior delivers its vitamins naturally sourced botanical ingredients like acerola cherries, ginger and turmeric.

The brand was inspired by co-founder, Rosh Amarasekara’s, experience of learning about plant alchemy from her father in Sri Lanka, where immunity was derived from the natural roots, spices and leaves in the surrounding environment as opposed to through manufactured supplements. On a mission to bring the power of plants to the UK, Rosh developed humble warrior – “a perfect balance of both flavour and function, using 100% natural botanical ingredients.” 

Meleni Aldridge, nutritional practitioner and consultant to humble warrior from ANH Consultancy said: “We’re seeing more people looking for ways of enhancing – or hacking – their immune systems with natural ingredients in functional foods and beverages, as opposed to popping handfuls of capsules and other supplements. People are more aware than ever of how their food and drink intake, as well as their lifestyle choices, impact their immunity, either positively or negatively. Healthy beverages that are convenient, great tasting, low in sugar, free of additives, 100% natural and loaded with plant-based goodies for the immune system are particularly popular.

Available in three flavour combinations, Pineapple Ginger, Pomegranate Hibiscus and Mango Turmeric, each can of humble warrior is powered by the fruit juices selected for their immune-boosting properties. including; Amazonian acerola cherries, Peruvian ginger, turmeric, alphonso mangoes, and Costa Rican pineapples , ethically sourced from growers around the world, with a portion of all sales going to SOS Children’s Villages Charity to support their work in Sri Lanka. 

humble warrior Pomegranate Hibiscus, Pineapple Ginger and Mango Turmeric are available to purchase across retail at Waitrose and on-trade nationally, including Whole Foods Markets, Zizzi restaurants and other heath retailers and independent cafes and restaurants nationally. It can also be purchased online
