Purple Lemon Honey in Lychee Flavor: Great Taste, Great Nutrition, Great Profits

BeachsidePunchOne day I was experimenting on better uses of purple corn juice in beverages and how to make it cheaper when marketing. Then I thought of one of my favorite drinks–lemon and honey. I can make them a base for my purple corn juice and come out with a new delicious beverage–Purple Lemon Honey.

So what I did was to make a regular lemon juice sweetened with honey, added 30 to 50 ml of purple corn juice, and put in lots of ice cubes. The result? Lychee flavored juice! So, with that, you can sell purple corn juice cheaper. Put out an ad that says, “Purple Lemon Honey in Lychee Flavor,” and sell a tall icy glass (about 250 ml) for P20 to P25. If you don’t have lemon around, try kalamansi.

Lemons are rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants like hesperetin and naringin that fight free radicals and protect DNA cells. It also has some Vitamin A, some B complex, and some minerals like potassium and calcium. Kalamansi, on the other hand, is said to have more Vitamin C than lemon. Moreover, it has some Vitamin B, niacin, riboflavin, calcium, protein, and iron.

Honey is said to be 80 percent natural sugar, 18 percent water, and 2 percent vitamins, minerals, pollen, enzymes, and protein.

If you have a food booth selling finger foods and drinks (which is a fad today in Manila), like siomai or squid balls and gulaman (seaweed jelly), try displaying an ad about Purple Lemon Honey in Lychee Flavor. That easily catches attention, especially if you enumerate the ingredients–purple corn juice from Peru, lemon, and honey. Then add how the juice is “all-natural, no artificial flavors, no chemicals, and no sugar.”

The moment your customers see “purple corn juice from Peru,” they’d start getting curious, ask you about it, and likely buy. Not many beverages today–if any–offer something like that. And it will help to have a bottle of purple corn juice on display on your booth so you can easily point to it when customers start getting noisy. They may even buy one bottle or come back to get money to buy one.

So, keep several bottles in your booth, just in case.

How Much Purple Corn Supplement is Enough for Health?

purple corn drinkIt’s funny how some people try purple corn supplements for a day or two and then expect tremendous results. For instance, there was this guy with difficulty breathing who tried one purple corn capsule. When nothing changed in his health the next day, he decided it wasn’t effective. So, how much purple corn supplement is enough for health and healing?

It’s like food–how much of it is enough to get rid of hunger? It’s never enough. You have to eat food daily, 3 times a day. And in reality, it’s like this–say, you’ve been starving for 10 years, eating nothing but a small piece of bread daily. If you start getting good nutrition and enough food, you can’t take big amounts at once in one sitting. You have to eat a little at a time which may not satisfy your ten-year starvation all at once.

The same with health supplements. One capsule cannot undo your years of eating food laden with chemicals and toxins, plus the pollution around you. You will have to take natural health supplements for life, with or without ailments. The same is true with purple corn supplements. Set a budget for it to be taken daily as long as you live.

You don’t solve your body’s need for nutrition in one sitting with one meal. It’s funny if you think your body nutritional needs can be solved permanently with one meal. You will have to eat 3 meals daily to do this. And you need to set aside a daily budget you plan for a week or month. However, it so happens that food today are no longer packed with the nutrition we need. Food today, even “fresh” vegetables and fruits, are not that nutritious anymore. We have to accept this fact. So we need to take natural food and health supplements.

People with closed minds still mock and laugh about natural health supplements, until one day serious ailments conquer their bodies and they realize too late. Well, in a way, often it’s not too late, but they need to take mega doses of natural supplements for them to work, and no guarantee at that. Curative remedies are more expensive and risky. So why wait till it’s too late?
