Using a blend of grape, black currant, and red beet juice as its base, M13's Calm/Detox formulation delivers a potent tart fruit flavor we had to consume slowly. Plus, they've enhanced it with a variety of functional ingredients, including iron, calcium, schisandra, chrysanthemum, ginseng, ginkgo biloba, and bilberry, which is the likely culprit behind the mild burn on the drink's finish. Still, this is a pretty enjoyable drink, especially with the product's very distinct looking bottle. The innovative design, which uses a 7.6 oz aluminum bottle with a matte grey finish and a minimalist front panel, feels like something you'd expect to see for an upscale skincare line rather than a functional beverage. Overall, good taste and an innovative approach to functionality in an eye grabbing package.
