Ancient healing remedies have increasingly gained recognition —and even infatuation—in today’s world, whether they are delivered through the prick of an acupuncture needle or the inhalation of a joint.
Each day, consumers all over the world are turning to botanical oils for their ability to promote relaxation or to capsules loaded with the yellow-gold of the turmeric plant for its acclaimed anti-inflammatory benefits.
Indeed, we are experiencing a true groundswell of desire for an elixir that can heal, deliver anti-aging benefits, and, just as importantly, taste great.
Now, Angela Zeng, visionary co-founder of the whole-plant, prebiotic drink Karuna, has launched VIVA, a downright magical elixir based on an ancient Japanese formula.
What differentiates VIVA from all other health drinks on the market is that it that contains the fabled Ashitaba Leaf.
The story behind Ashitaba is nothing short of legendary: In 220 BC, Qin Shi Huang, the First Emperor of China, sent a whole crew to sail from China to Japan after he was told there was a magical green plant in Japan that had the super healing power to cure many diseases and grant longevity.
Qin’s sailors found the Ashitaba plant on the island of Hachijo-jima, where the native islanders were known for their enhanced physical well-being and long lives.
Emperor Qin instructed his top medical doctor to make him a special potion using Ashitaba in the hope of attaining immortality. Sadly, he died before the formula was completed.
Now, Karuna has resurrected that ancient formula, creating a one-of-a-kind elixir that features this legendary longevity leaf combined with other super healing plants, including Aronia berries, beets, kiwi, and pomegranate.
This whole-plant fusion is rife with prebiotic fibers and natural antioxidants, free from any added sugar, food extracts, and synthesized vitamins.
Karuna’s VIVA is a pure thrill to enjoy. In contemporary culture, Viva and Karuna’s other invigorating elixirs—such as the Banana and Cinamon whole plant smoothie—have set off a sweeping cultural movement that is re-establishing ancient eastern health remedies as today’s new gold-standard health formulas.
Take Italian GQ cover model Jessica Dykstra, for instance. After years of struggling with metabolism, energy, and digestive issues, Jessica was advised by her doctors to look into prebiotics.
Prebiotics play a powerful role in enhancing the underlying health of the digestive system, enabling Jessica to capture more nutrition from the foods she eats.
For years, however, Jessica had a hard time finding good-tasting prebiotic beverages until a friend put her on to My Karuna.
Now, My Karuna has become Jessica’s all-in-one fit for daily radiance and wholesome health, allowing her to build her blossoming career at the speed she wants, unencumbered by crippling health issues.
Thanks to powerful testimonials like hers, more than 50 other celebrities, influencers, and health authorities—from authors like Elissa Goodman to actors like Alexis Knapp—have become infatuated with the drink and shared their enthusiasm for Karuna social media, in effect creating the world’s first trendy pre-biotic beverage.
