Allswell's Lychee with Aloe Vera

Lychee is a succulent fresh fruit within the soapberry family; it's the most cultivated fruit in southern Taiwan. The lychee fruit consists of sweet layered white-coloured flesh, covering a brown seed.

Taiwanese lychees are the country's number one fruit export and are loved all over the world - Europe and the United States, Japan, and all over Southeast Asia.

The benefits of eating lychee:

  • Aids Digestion: The significant amount of dietary fibre in lychee increases your digestive health and helps to regulate bowel movement by ensuring its smooth passage through the digestive tract.
  • Boosts Immunity: Lychee is rich in Vitamin C, with more than 100 percent of the recommended daily amount of vitamin C in one cup.  This means that your immune system gets a major boost, as vitamin C is a primary antioxidant compound and is known to stimulate the activity of white blood cells, which are the main defensive line of your body’s immune system.
  • Controls Blood Pressure: Lychee has a wealth of potassium, which helps to lower blood pressure by balancing out the negative effects of salt.
  • Healthy bones: Lychee has a good amount of copper, which is necessary for a healthy immune system and healthy bones. Copper also works with iron to create blood cells and reduce the risk of anemia.

The best lychee breed:

Allswell formulated our drink with Hei Ye lychee (黑葉荔枝), because it is one of the best varieties in the world. The Hei Ye lychee has a distinct sweet flavour, with a slight tart aftertaste. It's succulent flesh is rich in potassium, Vitamin C and copper - making it the perfect choice for our healthy yet delicious drink.

Lychee is in-season from May to October - this is when we have carefully select naturally ripened, juicy lychees and add in aloe vera bits for a hint of texture to create this delicious drink.
