Young & Fun: How we developed the recipe
When Dr Ketan Joshi visited the mountains around the Himalaya range he was struck by how many older people seemed so sprightly. Below he explains how he met Arkhan and what he was taking to remain so “young”.
Whilst walking between villages we came across a small river that we were struggling to cross.
From a nearby house a villager sprang across the fields, nimbly dropped into the river and helped us across. I looked into his lined face and sparkling eyes and asked how old he was. Arkhan amazed me by saying he was 86 years old.
We were invited in for tea and Arkhan let us into one of his secrets – a recipe for a tea that he said left him sharp and full of vigor.
When we analysed the ingredients later in Nagpur, it did not surprise us to find they were packed with antioxidants …
It was this recipe that formed the basis for InnOrbit’s functional drink YOUNG&FUN. Part of the profits from the sales of this drink get reinvested into the community where Arkhan lives so that girls can get educated at school.
