ViSalus NEUROâ„¢ FAQ
1. How is this product healthy?
Our energy drink provides more nutrition than the leading brands. We combine a patent pending combination
of ingredients to provide healthy energy. Other brands may use high levels of caffeine and sugar to give you that
â€˜lift,â€™ only to have you crash shortly thereafter. They may also use high levels of taurine to make your body respond,
which can make some people feel jittery. Our patent pending blend provides Rhodiola extract to help refresh your
brain, boost your alertness and boost mental acuity. We also included DMAE (2-di-methlaminoehtanol), a natural
compound that releases neuron transmitting compound (acetylcholine) and speeds neural transmission safely
We provide about 1/4 cup of coffee worth of natural caffeine to stimulate the body, combined with a B vitamin
blend to help support sustained energy. We then add vitamin C, because we know that when you are tired, it often
means your body is also under stress and needs to defend itself.
2. Why is it better than other energy brands?
Our product offers 3 key benefits: Mental alertness/acuity, Physical energy, and great portability and convenience.
We have less caffeine, no sugar spikes, great taste and itâ€™s easy to useâ€¦ is there more? Throw one in your gym bag
or purse instead of carrying around a can or two of the other brands. It is also low sodium and tastes great.
3. Who should take the product?
Our product was designed for young adults and beyond. The FDA does not have guidelines for caffeine intake as it
relates to kids, though they recommend no more than 45mg per day of caffeine for younger children. With all the
soda consumed today, it is likely children are drinking at least that amount already if not more. Our product has
about the same amount of caffeine as one can of orange soda or cola. Our recommendation is that you ask your
doctor before giving it to children.
Pregnant and lactating women should not use this product. It is not recommended for children.
4. Can I mix it in other liquids besides water?
Yes! For flavor variety any time of day, try mixing it with water, juice, lemonade, iced tea, hot tea, or other beverages
of your choice.
5. How many can I drink per day?
The US Government recommends that adults target no more than 240mg of caffeine per day. Therefore you can
easily consume 2-4 per day and be under that amount. At a high 4 per day (most people will drink 1-2 per day);
your customer can still enjoy their morning coffee.
6. With the high levels of B vitamins, and C Vitamins, is there a risk of getting too much if I take this
and the Vi-PAK?
There are no known adverse effects of Vitamin B consumption. For Vitamin C, youâ€™d have to consume over 3,000
mg before most effects of gastrointestinal disturbances are noticed. The levels or RDA are not based on the
required or ideal levels, but are the minimum threshold that everyone should consume.
7. Are there any allergens in the product?
None of the ingredients are known allergens. As with any product, each person may respond differently, but we are
not aware of any known issues.
8. Can people with high blood pressure or on heart medications take the product?
Our level of caffeine is low, and should not interfere with blood pressure medications at the 1-3 per day level.
However, cardiovascular diseases should be managed with physician care, so we recommend you speak to your
doctor before consuming ViSalus NEUROâ„¢. The product is low sodium.
9. Isnâ€™t caffeine bad for you? Why is it in the product?
Caffeine is known to help stimulate the brain and body. Though there is no nutritional need for caffeine, moderate
caffeine intake is not associated with any known health risk. There are conflicting opinions on how much is safe
for pregnant women or children. If you are concerned, we recommend you speak to your physician. The FDA
recommends that adults try to limit daily caffeine intake to 240mg. To achieve that level, youâ€™d need to drink over
5 servings per day of NEUROâ„¢. As with all conflicting clinical data, there is some clinical evidence that caffeine may
actually help with Alzheimerâ€™s and other diseases.
10. Why artificial sweeteners?
The formula contains herbs, which can be difficult to make taste good using sugar as a sweetener. Sugar can also
cause a high, followed by a low as it enters the body, which defeats the purpose of energy production. It also
appeals to a wide audience, as industry data shows that 69% of consumers want low to no sugar products. While
some people are concerned with safety, there are no known studies linking the use of the sweeteners weâ€™ve
selected with health risks. While Stevia is an herb that can provide sweetness, the US government currently does
not allow it to be combined into food supplements/foods as a sweetening agent.
11. Why these two flavors?
We selected the two flavors that will appeal to the widest number of people. The flavors also offer variety, and
worked well with our unique blend of ingredients.
12. Why a powder mix and not a liquid in a can?
Portability, sampling, and the ability to mix with multiple liquids made powder the smart choice. This provides the
utmost in convenience and personalization. Plus, itâ€™s easier to ship to your customers, costing them less.
13. Does NEURO meet the guidelines for athletic usage?
Yes. NEURO contains no ingredients on the Olympic banned substances list. With arginine and low caffeine,
athletes may enjoy using the product.
14. Our Vi-PAK helps with energy. Why are we offering this product?
Our mission is to spread the word about good nutrition around the world. To that end, we are developing products
that speak to different ages, genders, and cultural backgrounds. Currently, the average age of our distributors is 44.
We believe that offering a healthy energy drink will appeal to a wide age group, and attract younger people to the
ViSalus brand. Additionally, even though we are healthier and have more natural energy with the Vi-PAKÂ®, there
are those days we can all feel a bit in a fog. Perhaps we have an exam we are studying for, or a big presentation to
make. Our energy drink will help the brain as well as the body feel more refreshed for those moments in which we
all need a little lift. And, with the price point, it may help you attract a new customer to the ViSalus name.
