(WECT) - Some health drinks are made to replenish serious athletes, others are designed to build muscle.  Now, there's a health drink that some say is good for the mind, body, and soul.

"They need to be eating fruits, they need to be eating vegetables, they need to be exercising," said Fruit of the Spirit Vice President, Deanna Naylor.  "It's a conversation, it's a conversations we believe our churches need to be having with their members."

Naylor is praying the drink, Fruit of the Spirit, starts a dialogue among Christians about health.  The title is from the book of Galatians and the ingredients come from Galilee and the Dead Sea.

"Most people know that frankincense and myrrh, they were carried to baby Jesus by the wise men but they're natural anti-inflamatories," said Naylor.

Right now the drink is only available online, though its creators hope it will soon be on the shelves in faith-based bookstores.
