Does Zrii have a laxative effect? Is this habit-forming?

Zrii is not designed to have a laxative effect. Haritaki fruit is included in Zrii to serve as a subtle detoxifying agent. Amalaki and haritaki are used together in the well-known, classical Ayurvedic formulation, Triphala. Upon initially taking haritaki, some individuals may find that they have looser stools or more frequent bowel movements. After a few days, however, the body will typically begin to adjust, creating greater balance in the entire digestive system. This type of cleansing effect and subsequent digestive benefit is an important foundation of Ayurvedic medicine. The levels of haritaki in Zrii have been carefully formulated to make it beneficial for widescale use by anyone. It has also been shown that haritaki is not habit-forming.

Is Zrii Gluten-Free?


Is it safe to drink Zrii that has been frozen and thawed? How about heated to high temperatures in the sun?

Processes that expose foods to high levels of heat, light, and/or oxygen cause the greatest nutrient loss. It is advisable not to leave Zrii in car trunks or outside for hours. (This goes for any nutritional supplement.)

How Much Vitamin C is in Zrii?

The juice of the amalaki fruit has almost twenty times as much vitamin C as the juice of an orange.

By design, there is no standardized method to measure to vitamin C levels due to the natural variation of micronutrients and macronutrients within wild-crafted/organically harvested fruits. This variation is dependent upon harvesting cycles, time of harvest, and natural soil conditions. Furthermore, a comparison of ascorbic acid and the ascorbagens (the tannic acid-protected form of vitamin C in amalaki) is not a straight comparison.

Does consuming high levels of Vitamin C pose any health risks?

The naturally occurring vitamin C found in Zrii/amalaki fruit was formulated to supply a level that would be safe for everyday consumption, even when consumed at much larger than recommended amounts.

Research has shown that amalaki (amla) is 12 times easier to assimilate than ascorbic acid, which is found in food additives as a preservative. Researchers have also shown that just 8.7 mg of natural vitamin C from amla is equivalent to 100 mg of synthetic vitamin C. (Synthetic vitamin C is often missing vital nutrients such as rutin and bioflavonoids.)

Vitamin C has only been shown to have a negative impact on a few medical conditions and associated medications. These conditions are recurrent kidney stones, severe kidney disease, gout, iron overload, and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency. Vitamin C supplementation is, therefore, not recommended for individuals dealing with these illnesses.

Is Zrii tested for substances banned by athletic associations and agencies?

Banned Substances Control Group (BSCG) has certified that Zrii is free of anabolic agents and stimulants banned by major athletic organizations. This testing assures that athletes and sports associations can enjoy Zrii with full confidence.

BSCG is the only certification program in the United States that uses a WADA/ IOC accredited laboratory for all analyses. The detection limits used by BSCG are the lowest detection limits for any similar program worldwide. BSCG’s ongoing testing program tests Zrii for over 80 substances banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), International Olympic Committee (IOC), United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), National Football League (NFL), National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and many other professional and amateur sports leagues.

Why does Zrii use plastic?

We at Zrii carefully considered the options of plastics versus glass for our nutritional beverage product. A couple of key points helped us come to the conclusion that plastic would be the best option. The Zrii bottles are made from high quality, food grade HDPE #2 recycled plastic which has been shown to be one the safest plastics in regards to chemical leaching*. Plastic is lighter and less expensive to ship, thus saving the consumer money and reducing unnecessary fuel pollution.

*As reconfirmed in a recent Time magazine article and the scientific community, HDPE #2 does not contain bisphenol-A and is considered safe for use in food products. The biggest risks in plastic are with #7 Lexan, which is why top sports bottles have recently switched over to HDPE #2 from #7.

Can Zrii bottles be recycled?

HDPE #2 plastic is widely considered one of the easiest products to recycle and is first among recycling programs. Should our packaging end up in a landfill, plastic will decompose faster than glass. And since plastic is less likely to break, there is less waste in manufacturing and re-shipping packages to the consumer
