Mixing Indigo is very simple;
1. Open the sachet (either with scissors or pinch it in between the 3rd and 4th indent over the I and tear downward)
2. Mix with water into a glass or glass or plastic water bottle
Because the ingredients are made from fine dust, some clumps my occur after mixing. To prevent that, if you are mixing Indigo in a bottle, shake it a bit more, so the clumps are gone. If you are mixing it in a glass, then pour in the Indigo first then add a little bit of water and swirl it around and only after that add the rest of the water and mix again.
Indigo is normally mixed with 2,5 dl or 8 oz to 1 l or 34 oz of water, depending on taste and wanted effect.
For a bit of change of taste you can also add some natural orange or lemon juice and a cube or two of ice, for a more refreshing taste.
Albeit being recommended to mix with water, that of course can't stop us from discovering other options:
(The examples below have been tried but not officially recommended :D)
1. Indigo tea (A great option for cold days. I do recommend that after the water boils, you wait a bit before pouring the Indigo in, so the high temperature doesn't destroy the nutrients)
2. Vodka + Indigo (Indigo mixed with water beforehand - unexpectedly good taste and results in a better alcohol tolerance)
3. White wine + Indigo (mixed feelings, not good, not bad. Needs more testing!)
4. Beer + Indigo (If you mix it in the right ratio it contributes to a mild fruit flavor)
5. Milk + Indigo? (For the brave)
6. Yogurt + Indigo? (No...)
Based on user experience, the main effects last for about 4-8 hours, based on the amount of water you mix it with and how fast you drink it. (The lesser and the faster, the stronger)
If you drink coffee on a daily basis, the immediate effect will be lower but through the course of the day the difference will be more than transparent, because it holds a lot longer than coffee.
Data on our flyer:
All three of these marks mean more or less the same thing.
In Slovenia, the eco and bio labels are used, and generally in the European Union the organic label is used.
The conditions for acquisition are very similar.
The food or product on which the certificate is used must contain at least 95% of organic ingredients of agricultural origin. For this reason, labels are mostly used for agricultural products such as fruits and vegetables, flour, flour mixtures, etc. There is rarely a label on products with more than 5 different ingredients.
Indigo is made up of 31 different ingredients. Although they are of plant origin, some also need to be treated differently to get out what you want. In this case, it's the vitamins and amino acids that are added to Indigo for even better effect. However, all this is not possible under organic farming conditions.
Yes, but let me explain...
The label / certificate natural at least in the EU doesn't exist for food products. Only Bio / Eco / Organic is used in that regard and natural is used in cosmetics.
Outside of certification and labeling, Indigo does contain 31 ingredients of natural origin. These are either fruits and herbs or extracts of fruits and herbs. So everything inside can be obtained from natural sources.
Indigo is sugar free and contains no artificial sweeteners, but does contain naturally occurring sugars of less than 0,2g per drink. The total value of all carbohydrates is 6,4g.
The claim that it is suitable for diabetics is no longer used because EU law has not set a general threshold for when and when it is not suitable for diabetics.
In my personal experience, however, I have not yet had a case of a person with diabetes having difficulty consuming Indigo.
Yes. Indigo does not contain Genetically Modified Organisms.
Generally speaking, cultivation of GMOs is banned in most countries in the European Union. Where production is permitted, it is mostly for animal fodder. Many more countries, however import GMO products. But such products have to be (by EU law) clearly and appropriately labeled as such.
And as such, GMO - free products do not need to be labeled as GMO - free.
Any caffeine-containing beverage is not recommended for pregnant women and children. Because Indigo also contains caffeine, it is not recommended for pregnant women and children.
Indigo is manufactured in the EU for Bhip Europe ApS, based in Denmark, through which it is also distributed to other EU Member States.
The supplier for Indigo is B:HIP Europe ApS, based in Denmark. It is of particular importance, however, because Denmark has accepted by law that products produced in Denmark must not contain "GMOs", which further demonstrates the quality of the product itself.
Several people were responsible for the development of the indigo. One of the main ones was Umahro Cadogan, who is a nutrition specialist in Denmark (for more information you can also see the interview that Vizita.si did with him when he came to Slovenia).The other person who put in great effort, was Gunnar Kvistgaard, who is an expert in the field of nutrition legislation.
