Frequently asked questions
The brain and gut are a packaged deal when it comes to feeling good. Connected by millions of nerves and chemicals called neurotransmitters, they are in a symbiotic (and pretty co-dependent) relationship. When one is in distress, the other suffers. It’s a two-way street. Poor mental health triggers poor biome function. It’s a vicious cycle. Thus, you can literally change your gut’s mind with good nutrition and smart choices for your microbiome.
VINA is smart soda because it’s multifaceted and hyperfunctional. Our formula and ingredient selection is designed to address not one or the other in isolation but the connection between the two for optimal wellness. VINA is particularly bright because it keeps you on autopilot. By nourishing this connection at its core, you allow your brain to do the work without any meddling from an unhealthy gut.
No disrespect to other prebiotic sodas. They are undeniably a better alternative to traditional sugar-ridden options (which is really bad for your healthy gut biome). But VINA isn’t just better, it’s smarter. We got to the core of things with our formulation that zeros in on the brain-gut connection - the bidirectional link. Of course, we want your stomach settled and microbiome thriving but when the gut and brain communicate efficiently (no stress in or between the gut or brain), seamless signals are sent between the two for a discernible improvement in cognitive function and long term benefits to brain health.
Prebiotics are plant fibers and food for probiotics – so, don’t feed them junk! Probiotics keep your microbiome healthy (or unhealthy). And a thriving microbiome is a superpower for optimal brain health.
A note from our Chief Smarts Officer: The minerals in VINA are micro but mighty. They are what we consider ‘essential’ because they must be consumed since we don’t manufacture them independently. They are found in fruit, veggies, fish, legumes, whole grains and now, VINA. The microminerals contribute to a multitude of regulatory functions in the human body. These are some of the trace minerals in VINA that I love because they are working the hardest for you: Magnesium is considered to have natural antidepressant properties. Chloride maintains pH in the blood and gut and produces hydrochloric acid, which helps break down foods in the stomach. Boron supports immune function and bone health. Lithium generates new neurons and is a natural mood stabilizer. -Dr. Kerson
