Have You Met Saltspring Island's Moonshine Mama?

July 9, 2024

In 2011 Moonshine Mama founder, Mel was diagnosed with stage 3 cancer. After extensively researching natural ways to reduce inflammation and boost the immune system, Mel began mixing natural ingredients into delicious and activated elixirs with the power to heal. Necessity was the mama of invention.

Extract the Potential

It all began with a divine connection to turmeric. Backed by science, turmeric contains the active compound curcumin that’s scientifically proven to act effectively as both an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory.

That connection rooted Moonshine Mama's mission to activate and share the healing powers of nature’s ingredients to make these elixirs fully absorbable and to extract the potential contained within for the benefit of your health and well-being.

More Super Than a Supplement

Simply swallowing a capsule won’t do the trick. To get the full range of curcumin’s benefits, Moonshine Mama's activates their turmeric-based products with ingredients like black pepper, lemon and coconut oil. This process takes your absorption up to 2000%, allowing you to easily receive the immune-boosting, energizing, health benefits your body wants and needs.
