What is Forte?

Forte is designed for natural defences. Its tangy yet delicious taste and the vivid red colour are a result of the combination of organic tart berry juice and organic cranberry juice mixed in spring mineral water sourced from the Eden Valley in Cumbria.

The tanginess of Forte is tamed and balanced with Stevia’s natural sweetness to make it palatable for everyone’s taste buds. In addition, Zinc, Selenium, and Vitamin C are a trio included in this drink that help to strengthen the body’s natural defences.

Each bottle gives you 3.5mg of Zinc (35% NRV*), 50mg of Vitamin C (62.5% NRV*) and 35mcg of Selenium (63% NRV*).

Why is Forte unique?

Tart cherry Juice has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities. Hence, tart cherry juice has shown to lower systolic blood pressure and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL) [1].

Products containing cranberries may help prevent urinary tract infections (UTIs). In particular, cranberry juice consumed by elderly women may lower the incidence of bacteriuria and pyuria [2] [3].

Forte also includes Zinc, Selenium and Vitamin C.

Zinc is important for absorption and action of B vitamins. It is required for protein synthesis, collagen formation and strong immune system.

Selenium helps build the immune system by destroying free radicals, and also aids in building antibodies.

Vitamin C is an all-rounder vitamin; essential for healthy teeth, bones and gums.
