Synergy’s Super Shots

Synergy Organic Juice Bar and Café, in Ft. Walton Beach, has extended its shooter menu with nutritionally dense concentrated super shots of juice that deliver benefits directly to the cells in the body. Owner Amy Likins, a holistic nutritionist, states, “Among the powerhouse superfoods on the menu are wheatgrass, ginger and turmeric, all tasting delicious.”


Wheatgrass-Liquid Energy/Life-Force

Just one ounce of this fresh-pressed juice is equivalent to four to five pounds of leafy green vegetables. Comprised of 70 percent chlorophyll, it increases the body’s production of red blood cells, lowers blood pressure, stimulates healthy tissue growth and breaks down carbon dioxide. Green foods are extremely alkaline and promote healthy weight and detoxification by creating an environment in the body where diseases like cancer, arthritis, diabetes and other degenerative diseases can’t thrive.

Ginger and Turmeric

These herbs are anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antibacterial and anticancer. They are useful for pain and swelling associated with arthritis and fibromyalgia and indigestion, while helping tone the intestinal muscles. They are immune stimulants and help to fight infection as well as act as a circulatory tonic and helps to reduce serum cholesterol levels in the blood.


These fruits are alkaline, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, immune boosting and help support the detoxification of liver and lymph. High vitamin C and antioxidant levels help promote the death of certain cancer cells, boost white blood cell count and stabilize healthy weight.
