ZAVU® Immunity Wellness shots are specially formulated for health-conscious, on the go consumers seeking a powerful pick me up to help them through their day.
Indigenous Brazilian acerola, mango, and passion fruits are harvested at the peak of ripeness to create a refreshing organic juice beverage.
THE LAND AND ITS PEOPLE. ZAVU’s fruits are harvested by farmers who work in a fair trade organization and cooperative system, forming a mutually beneficial bond between Brazil’s land and its people. Through sustainable and organic farming, the environment is cared for, and the co-op people’s everyday lives are improved. The families on these small farms work hard to improve the organic production of the crops. The land then cares for them during harvest season when the plants create more jobs, improving the quality of life for all.
THE CROPS. The cherry-like acerola fruit is bright red with a juicy, and often sweet pulp and delicate flavor profile with apple notes. The fruit is very high in Vitamin C, up to 4,000 mg per 100g, making acerola based drinks a perfect addition to anyone’s diet.
Farmers in this region cultivate acerola alongside other native crops and trees to prevent deforestation while planting the fruit. The ample sunshine boosts the acerola's vitamin C content, and smart planning ensures a bountiful harvest year after year. The fruit pulp is cold-pressed and mixed with organic sweeteners and the high-pressure processing seals in maximum freshness and delivers a juice beverage bursting with flavor.
Like the South of the United States, it is a region rich in history and folklore.
The acerola plant thrives in dry, sandy soil and requires full sunlight to grow effectively - making it an ideal crop to flourish in this arid Northeast Brazilian region.
Larissa, a Brazilian born and raised in the Northeast region of Brazil, grew up with acerola in its native habitat. Larissa’s mom makes acerola juice for lunch, the main meal of the day in Brazil. Upon returning to the U.S. after holiday visits to Brazil, Shayne and Larissa noticed their immunity gradually decreased. Outside of the sunshine and great food in Brazil, the high doses of daily Vitamin C from the acerola juice seemed to benefit their immune systems. Upon further research, they realized that acerola has the highest Vitamin C content of any fruit in the world. The inspiration for Zavu was born, and the “immunity” shot was developed, along with other added organic ingredients to boost your immunity. Every time we drink a Zavu, it reminds us of family, sunshine, and the spirit of Brazil.
