However, it is not recommended for children, pregnant and/or breastfeeding women, and individuals who are sensitive to caffeine.

Apart from energy drink, RealMixalso offers different fruit drinks such as Cranberry, Lemongrass, and Ice Tea Peach & Lemon.

Cranberries are rich in antioxidants that flush toxins out of the body. This process improves the digestive system and metabolism which will lead to weight loss. Continuous consumption of cranberries can slow down ageing process, keeping skin naturally moisturised and hydrated. Their sugar content is also lower than many other fruits, hence, their tart flavour. Cranberries can help prevent urinary tract infections (UTI). Cranberries have citric acid and other nutrients that can help prevent bladder complications and kidney stones. Cranberries are packed with fibre that is great for overall gut health, and can improve digestion. Cranberries are also good for oral hygiene, ideal for treating plaque formation, cavities and initial level gum disease. Cranberries can help ward off inflammation and boost the immune system. Also good for the heart, cranberries contain various powerful minerals and enzymes that can help lower bad cholesterol from lining and blocking arteries.
