The science of the pod.

Our mission.

All Vitapod beverages have been carefully formulated by pioneers in the field of health science for optimal nutrition and hydration. They provide a more complete daily nutrition for the whole family, using the revolutionary science behind polyphenols and flavonoids to help you feel and be your healthiest self.

Meet the doctors behind the pod.

Dr. David Nieman

DrPH, FACSM

A pioneer in the research area of exercise and nutrition immunology.

“We have formulated these nutritionally advanced beverages to help families make good decisions that support optimal health and wellness. Many ingredients have been included in randomized clinical trials and have proven health benefits. Our goal is to provide your body with essential nutrients and the daily hydration you need to feel good and function at your best.

“By supplementing under-consumed nutrients, you’ll have more energy, feel better mentally and experience fewer colds and other respiratory infections in the short term. Longer term, the added flavonoids and essential nutrients will lower risk of most of the common chronic diseases that plague modern men and women. It’s what we mean when we say Vitapod drinks help refresh, restore and refuel your body, mind and spirit.”

Dr. Mary Anne Lila

PHD

The world’s foremost authority on blueberry polyphenol research.

“The natural compounds we have prioritized in the Vitapod formulations each have a long history of human use, especially in native and tribal communities. These were included in the traditional, energizing lifestyles that were integrated with nature, combining pure and wholesome nutritive compounds with a vigorous energetic way of daily living.

“Now, we’ve been able to demonstrate through science the processes by which plant-based flavonoids, micronutrients and related ingredients provide resilience to the human body and spirit. The formulations support optimal health and robust defenses against the stresses that would otherwise weaken immune responses. They provide a ‘whole body’ approach to optimizing the human healthspan.”

Dr. Giuseppe Valacchi

PHD

International expert in skin health and aging.

“My team and I have formulated the Beauty+ shot to improve overall skin health. Skin is our first barrier against environmental stressors and can be strongly improved by diet. Consuming key nutrients such as collagen, flavonoids, zinc, selenium, and specific antioxidants in a balanced ratio can prevent skin aging and improve skin health. One Beauty+ shot a day will make your skin more resistant to stressors and improve skin’s elasticity, along with its overall appearance.”

Closing the nutrition gap.

On average, we eat only two, instead of the recommended 5 – 9 servings of fruits and vegetables, leading to a nutrition gap in key vitamins, minerals, and plant-based antioxidants. Vitapod has been formulated by our board of scientists to overflow with nutrients including flavonoids and amino acids to help our families close the nutrition gap – the fact that it tastes delicious is just a bonus!

Nourishment 

9 out of 10 Americans are not eating enough fruits and vegetables each day leading to a nutrition gap in key vitamins and minerals. Our pods fill that gap with quick access to vitamins like Vitamin A, C, D, and E, minerals like potassium, magnesium, calcium, and polyphenols that the human body is unable to generate on its own. Vitapod is your ultimate source of nourishment in one tasty drink.

Flavonoids

Flavonoids are antioxidants developed in plants over millions of years for two main reasons – to protect them from UV radiation and viruses. Unfortunately, the average American consumes just 50 mg of flavonoids per day from fruits and vegetables. We should be having at least 400-500 mg. With up to 370 mg of flavonoids, our beverages help close this essential nutrition gap with each glass.

Hydration

Every day we lose up to 100 ounces of water – with 1 in 5 adults experiencing mild dehydration during the course of the week. Our revolutionary system loads each drink with flavonoids, vitamins, and electrolytes, ensuring it’s not cleared too quickly by the kidneys and hydrates our bodies to the optimal level – and unlike most sport drinks, we don’t rely on excessive amounts of sodium to get it done.

HYDRA+

Healthier than water.

Vitapod Hydra+ provides a unique blend of electrolytes that hydrate better than water. Also includes vitamins A, C, D, E, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, and potassium plus flavonoids from decaffeinated green tea extract.

Hydra+ is the tasty and effective way to bridge the nutrition gap, providing essential micronutrients and flavonoids to support overall health & wellness.
