Do vitamins deteriorate in water?

Vitamins such as water soluble vitamins lose potency while sitting in water or exposed to moisture. Additionally, vitamins suffer degradation while they are exposed to UV rays, oxygen and heat. The loss is greater when the vitamin contents are spread across the full contents of bottled beverages. The broader the surface area, the greater the exposure. In sharp contrast, Karma’s vitamins are stored dry in the hermetically sealed cap, the vitamins are stored in a condensed area which limits exposure to the elements, and Karma makes use of opaque plastic and a UV blocker in its cap. Each of the differences in Karma are designed to enhance the longevity of shelf-life and therefore increase potency at time of consumption. By introducing the vitamins only seconds or minutes from actual consumption, it optimizes the effectiveness of the nutrient-rich ingredients. Karma contains a generous amount of vitamins and nutrients, and that by itself is why Karma is a premium product.

What is a hermetic seal?

Hermetic means “airtight.” The KarmaCap utilizes injection molding and a spin weld fitting to produce a hermetic (airtight) seal between the cap and base—you could seriously throw this thing into the ocean (not that we’re encouraging that!) and the inside would stay dry. The seal assures optimal quality standards and protects the vitamin powder, maintaining freshness and delivering maximum vitamin potency. And—just because we think you’ll appreciate it—the KarmaCap is made of recyclable material.

Are the vitamins and nutrients in Karma more potent than in other brands?

Karma contains two to four times the volume of other vitamin-dispensing caps, and three to six times more vitamins and nutrients than other competing vitamin-enhanced beverages.

Is Karma healthy?

Every bottle of Karma contains 110 percent (or more) of the recommended daily allowance of seven essential vitamins, including vitamins A, B3-Niacin, B5-Pantothenic Acid, B6, B12, D, and E. Karma is naturally sweetened with a blend of stevia and pure cane sugar. Each 18-ounce bottle contains only 20 calories and is free of preservatives. Karma is also low in sodium, heart healthy, safe for diabetics, and is lactose free and gluten free.

What is stevia?

Stevia is a sugar substitute. Derived from the leaves of an herb native to South America, stevia is a healthier option than table sugar because it is 300 times sweeter (meaning we have to use much less of it!) and contains zero calories.

What type of water is used to produce Karma beverages?

We like to think that Karma begins with a gift from Mother Nature–pristine natural spring water. While the bulk of water beverages on the market today use municipal water sources, Karma is sourced from fresh springs in Vermont. Just peel, push, and shake to instantly transform your water into wellness.

How do I know which Karma beverage is right for me? Can you explain the benefits in each?

This is a trick question, because you can’t go wrong! Karma is available in five varieties that have been meticulously formulated to deliver their own distinct wellness benefits through a precise combination of vitamins and nutrients. With Karma, there is always a good choice. Ultimately, we hope that you’ll try them all!

  • “Balance” (Acai Pomberry) is an immunity booster, providing 1,000 mg of vitamin C (which is 1,667 percent of your recommended daily dose), as well as zinc, berry extracts, and tea polyphenols. Combined with other ingredients, this formula serves to enhance the immune system and promote overall health and well-being.
  • “Body” (Raspberry Guava Jackfruit) includes a fitness accelerator, offering sodium and potassium, as well as chondroitin sulfate, calcium, and vitamin D. This mix works to replenish essential electrolytes, combat the risk of osteoarthritis, and maintain healthy bones.
  • “Spirit” (Passionfruit Green Tea) )is a mood elevator that contains ginseng and L-theanine. These ingredients and others help you to recover from stress and encourage relaxation.
  • “Mind” (Orange Mango) is specially formulated for mental alertness, providing yerba mate, choline, and coenzyme Q10. Choline and yerba mate support clarity and stimulate focus, while coenzyme Q10 is an antioxidant that helps fuel the body’s daily activity.
  • “Vitality”(Pineapple Coconut) offers healthy hydration, with ingredients that include trans-resveratrol, magnesium, and potassium—all of which have biological, physiological, and anti-aging effects. Other natural ingredients such as green tea, ribose, and maca abstract impact alertness and replenish energy.

And, don’t forget: every bottle of Karma contains 110 percent (or more) of the recommended daily allowance of seven essential vitamins, including vitamins A, B3-Niacin, B5-Pantothenic Acid, B6, B12, Niacin, D, and E.

Is Karma Wellness Water safe and good for my kids?

Absolutely. Many parents are concerned (and rightly so!) about offering their children sugar-filled or artificially flavored beverages. Karma is sweetened naturally with stevia and pure cane sugar. In moderation, fortified or vitamin-enhanced food and beverage products like Karma can help kids reach their nutrition and hydration needs. It’s also a great choice for kids with some dietary limitations, as all Karma Wellness Waters are lactose free and gluten free. Plus, each 18-ounce bottle is one serving (versus two for competitive brands) and has only 20 calories.

Why did you name the beverage "Karma"?

Today’s beverages are not providing what they claim to be; there are a lot of smoke and mirrors. At Karma, we embrace the principle of cause and effect. We believe that if you do something positive, you’ll get something positive in return.

The name needed to speak to the core philosophy of the brand—to be truly meaningful, a beverage must have both substance and style. American consumers are demanding more from their food and beverages, and require assurance that the choices they’re making will positively impact their health.

Karma is a universally understood concept and lifestyle. It transcends the drink and reflects the person. It’s a movement we believe in and want to be a part of moving forward.

Where did the idea for Karma Wellness Water originate?

Karma was born from the universal truth and karmic idea that if you do something positive, you’ll get something positive in return. Since vitamins deteriorate in water, too many products available today are flawed. With Karma, consumers finally get a nutrient-enhanced water that delivers on its promise, allowing them to take responsibility today for tomorrow by creating positive effects on the mind, body, spirit, balance, and vitality.

How much does an 18-ounce bottle of Karma Wellness Water cost?

The suggested retail price for an 18-ounce bottle of Karma ranges from $2.39 to $2.89.

Where can I buy Karma Wellness Water?

Karma is expanding retail availability to include fitness clubs of all kinds and an impressive number of retail stores.

I noticed that the powder is not filled to the very top of the cap. Can you please explain?

The design of the KarmaCap includes a funnel-shaped aperture in the base of the cap. When you push the button to mix your drink, this shape helps the powder pour into the bottle via gravity. Since some of the powder moves down into the funnel when the bottle is upright, it is hidden from view. If you tip the bottle upside down, you will see that the powder does, in fact, fill the cap.
