Frequently Asked Questions About VAYA

What's with the name?

It’s hip and we dig it! We spent months thinking about it with some of the best creative minds in the advertising world.

If you’re like most people, you’ll probably just call it VAYA (pronounced Vy-Uh).

Our inspiration for the name has many meanings. But to us VAYA is a way of life, and we really just created it to help remind people to stay active and to stay hydrated.

What does "What's Your VAYA" mean?

“What’s Your VAYA”, means “what are you into?” Is it active, and if so what are you using to hydrate? We Are VAYA, tells the world that we are a new way to hydrate. Now, we are asking you, “What do you like to do to stay active?”

Is VAYA a sports drink?

Uh NO. We are anything but a sports drink. We are an Active Lifestyle Recovery Beverage. Sure we can go on and on with the fancy BIG words, but really, VAYA has less than one third of the sugar in your average sports drink and close to three times the electrolytes, along with B vitamins and minerals. The best part is that VAYA does not use juice or coconut water, rather natural and organic flavors and a combination of sodium, potassium and glucose for well-balanced hydration.

Will athletes use VAYA for sports recovery? ABSOLUTELY! Why not? It smokes the competition, tastes better, and is made with natural and organic ingredients.

So, is VAYA an energy drink?

NO. Energy drinks have lots of unnatural ingredients. We originally set out to create something we couldn’t find anywhere: a true, functional beverage that counteracts the effects of dehydration while actually tasting great and being really, really good for you.

We think we hit it out of the park. With 770mg of electrolytes per serving, rapid rehydration is an understatement. At just 50 calories and 12 grams of sugar (heck, an orange has more than that!), you’re not refilling your body with junk. You are replenishing your body with things you do want, like rejuvenating vitamins and minerals. The taste? Bad-ass, thanks to natural, non-GMO organic ingredients — perfectly vegan, gluten-free, and kosher, too.

So, yeah. Not an energy drink. It’s our own thing and we think you’re going to love what we put into it.

Can I give VAYA to my child?

Sure. If you are looking for a cleaner way to hydrate for your child we would recommend cutting VAYA with water to offset the high amount of electrolytes and B vitamins.

Additionally, if your child is under 1 you should not provide them with VAYA and you should consult with your pediatrician first.

VAYA in no way makes any claims that our product will help your child or an adult in anyway.

Does VAYA really work for hangovers?

There is no such thing as a hangover cure. However, one of our founders did set out to help offset hangovers through proper hydration from a well-balanced hydration solution which consists of sodium, potassium and organic sugar.

If you mix alcohol our studies have found that VAYA will not be of much benefit to you the next day. The same goes if you drink all night and use VAYA in the morning and not before bed. Sure, VAYA will provide you with hydration, but the damage is already done once you go to sleep.

Therefore if mixing drinks, have 1 full bottle of VAYA before you go to bed and 1 bottle in the morning for optimal results. Think about it, you will be putting over 1,500 electrolytes into your system and over 200% of your daily value of B vitamins with only 24g of sugar across two bottles. That is almost five 20oz sports drinks without all the sugar.

However, if you do not mix alcohol and you drink a full 16.9 oz. bottle of VAYA before you go to bed, our studies have found that it can significantly help you stay hydrated and feel better in the morning.

Keep in mind, though, people and body sizes are different. Therefore, you will need to try the product in different formats to determine what works best for you if any.

We are not making any medical claims that VAYA is the cure for anything or that it will help you in your current situation. Please drink responsibly, and DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE.

When should I drink VAYA?

You want to drink VAYA any time your body is seeking true functional hydration. This is mainly when you are dehydrated from working out (general exercise such as hiking, cycling, swimming, yoga, etc.), if you had too much to drink, if you travel a lot, and of course if you’re sick.

Instead of filling your body with sugar water and low amounts of electrolytes, give your body functional hydration. Give your body VAYA!
