Frequently Asked Questions
CAN I DRINK AFTER THE EXPIRATION DATE?
Freshness is important to us. As such, please do be sure to drink our shots in their entirety before the expiration date and within 5 days (or less!) of opening them.
HOW MANY SHOTS CAN I TAKE PER DAY?
We recommend a single shot for daily wellness and up to three when you are looking for a bit more. We suggest starting with one and seeing how you feel (with or without food) and find out what works for you.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO TAKE THE IMMUNITY BOOST SHOT OR ANY OTHER SHOT?
Great question! When you take the shots is completely up to you and how your body feels. Our doctors recommend taking them in the morning on an empty stomach to help absorb nutrients, or in the afternoon away from food. However, if you taking the shots for the first time we do suggest you pair with food so you can get an understanding of the taste and how the ingredients make you feel.
WHAT TYPE OF SHOT ROUTINE WOULD VIVE RECOMMEND FOR LONG TERM USE?
Our shots can work well with your daily wellness routine! If you're considering adding them for an extended period of time, we recommend speaking with your doctor to craft a plan dedicated to your individual wellness.
ARE VIVE SHOTS SAFE FOR KIDS? How Often can they have a shot, and how much?
Yes, our shots are food grade and safe for kids! If your child is under 12 we suggest you have them take half the shot. Lots of kids love our shots, but if your child has a hard time with the taste the shots can be diluted in water, smoothies, juice, etc.
CAN I TAKE THESE EVERYDAY?
Yes! Our shots can be taken every day for extended periods of time. If taking consistently, please consult your doctor for confirmation that the shots you're taking supplement your current routine.
What is the sediment in my bottle?
The sediment on the bottom is a natural result of us cold pressing ginger. We don't use emulsifiers/preservatives/additives to bind our juice together, so the separation is natural. Get in there, use that muscle and shake it up real good so you can be sure to enjoy all the fresh, pressed ginger goodness!
Can I freeze the shots to drink later if I buy in bulk?
Freezing the shots will not extend the shelf life for use past the 'good by' date. You can always conveniently order online for a bulk delivery to your home! All packages are shipped in 2 days or less should you need more immediate delivery.
Can I take these if I have Acid Reflux or a sensitive stomach?
Have you consumed fresh ginger before? If so, and you haven't experienced issues, we don't anticipate a concern. Our shots are full of ginger, which can pack a punch. If it's your first time trying the shots you can take one half with a meal, saving the other half in the fridge to enjoy the next day. Gradually, depending how you react, you can increase the dose to the full shot on an empty stomach to increase absorption of nutrients. However, we recommend consulting with your doctor concerning any medical issues.
How are you working on Sustainability? Or Recycling?
Thanks for reaching out, expressing your love for Vive Organic, AND caring so much about our planet! We care, too. We proudly use 100% recycled plastic bottles for all of our shots and love to re-use our bottles for traveling purposes (shampoo, medicine, salad dressings). That being said, we continue exploring innovative packaging options and looking for opportunities to improve our product.
Does keeping an opened shot in the fridge decrease the potency or the effect?
While we recommend drinking the entire shot when you first open it. You can store it in the fridge for up to 5 days; however we have not tested nutritional value after the product is opened. Our product's freshness is guaranteed upon opening!
How long do your shots stay good out of the fridge?
Our shots like it cold! The active ingredients in our product must stay cold to maintain freshness. They are OK out of cold for up to 2 hours for the best outcome.
Can I freeze the shots to keep them colder for longer (ie keep shots cold for a flight)?
We recommend drinking our shots fresh; freezing could potentially change the consistency, flavor, & nutrient density of our shots. If your are traveling, consider using a small cooler bag or ice packs to keep them nice and cold!
Are your shots Kosher?
Great question! Our Immunity Boost Original, Immunity Boost with Elderberry, Immunity Boost with Cayenne and Wellness Rescue are certified Kosher by the Orthodox Union.
Are your shots Gluten Free?
Great question! Yes, all Vive Organic shots are gluten free. They are also vegan, organic and non-GMO. Cheers to your health :)
What does Cold Pressure mean?
Cold pressure, or cold pressed, are two different ways we describe the process by which we extract juice from the roots, herbs, and flowers we use! After we cold press the ingredients, we utilize a sterilization method called HPP that uses high amounts of pressure to kill bacteria while keeping our vital nutrients intact.
Are your shots pasteurized?
Great question! Our shots are not traditionally pasteurized; they go through a process called cold water pressure method, HPP (high pressure processing), which maintains the quality of the flavor and the effectiveness of the juice.
