FAQ

WHY TAKE PEPPOD?

Our body is already an energy producing machine. It doesn’t need things like tons of caffeine, sugar and artificial ingredients included in so many other energy products on the market to spike your energy levels. What your body needs is a healthy balance of the vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, antioxidants, and amino acids from a PepPod to replenish your body’s natural energy levels. These nutrients are often depleted daily due to our not-so-great food choices, stress, lack of sleep, dehydration and lots of exercise or too little. The results from a PepPod are lasting energy, mental clarity, hydration, strengthened immunity that also fights jet-lag and even hangovers.

 

WHY CAN’T I JUST EAT FOOD TO GET NUTRIENTS?

Even if you ate perfectly, which most of us do not every day, you can no longer get the nutrients out of your food that you did 100+ years ago. Our soils are over-farmed and eroded and as such contain less than half the amount of nutrients that used to be present. Our trace minerals used in PepPod solve this problem.

 

WHEN SHOULD I TAKE PEPPOD?

For workouts, work-days and everything in between. PepPod is a great solution for the mid-afternoon crash or whenever you need better focus and to feel alert. Athletes use PepPod during and after strenuous activity. Travelers use PepPod to avoid altitude sickness and jet lag. Nighttime enthusiasts use PepPod to keep going all night and avoid the nasty next day hangover.

 

WHO SHOULD TAKE PEPPOD?

Athletes and entrepreneurs; musicians and coders; soul-searchers and game changers. Whatever your think, PepPod was created to help you get there, do what you love and soak up every last drop. Pregnant women, children and those caffeine-sensitive types should consider the 71mg of green tea caffeine in the product.

 

IS PEPPOD HEALTHY?

Absolutely!!! Chalked full of nutrients to keep you feeling at your best. Toss out those multi-vitamins, immunity boosters, electrolyte / sports powders and drinks, energy drinks – we’ve got you covered with our tiny tablet!

 

DOES PEPPOD CONTAIN SUGAR? HOW IS IT SWEETENED?

There is no sugar in a PepPod. PepPod is sweetened with stevia, it is an herb also has a great deal of health benefits including weight loss, regulates blood pressure, lowers cholesterol, prevents cancer, promotes healthy skin and prevents osteoporosis.

 

HOW MUCH CAFFEINE IS THERE IN A PEPPOD?

PepPod contains 71mg of green tea which is less than a small cup of coffee. It is there not only to provide the amazing health benefits green tea has to offer (antioxidants and other nutrients) that promote brain function, fat loss, strengthen immunity and lower the risk of cancer. The small amount of caffeine in green tea helps you absorb the vitamin B12 but it’s not too much that inhibits the absorption of the other nutrients in PepPod.

 

WHY IS THERE SO MUCH VITAMIN B12 IN PEPPOD?

To ensure your body absorbs as much of it as needed. Everyone’s body is different and vitamin B12 is very hard to absorb. We chose the natural form of B12 called methylcobalamin which absorbs easier than its artificial counterpart (cyanocobalamin). We also included a small amount of green tea which also aids in the absorption. Vitamin B12 is water soluble, which means whatever your body does not need will just flush out of your system.

 

WILL PEPPOD GIVE ME THE JITTERS OR LEAD TO A CRASH LIKE OTHER ENERGY DRINKS?

While our bodies process things like caffeine and multivitamins differently, the small amount of green tea in PepPod does not typically give people jitters and we have yet to hear of someone feeling a “crash”.

 

WHY DOES PEPPOD CONTAIN SORBITOL? I HEAR IT HAS A LAXATIVE EFFECT.

Sorbitol is commonly used in many diabetic products as a sweetener in large quantities and sometimes causes a laxative effect. Sorbitol is derived from fruit and therefore should you eat the equivalent amount of fruit, the same effect would occur. The fruit-derived sorbitol in a PepPod is used as a binder and thus is in negligible trace amounts and is highly unlikely to cause a laxative effect.

 

THE LABEL SAYS NATURAL FLAVORS, WHAT IS IN IT EXACTLY?

We follow FDA guidelines in how to label PepPod. But we also believe in full transparency. Citrus is grapefruit and vanilla. Berry is raspberry, strawberry, blueberry and blackberry.

 

IS IT VEGAN?

It is vegetarian. It is not considered completely vegan because PepPod’s vitamin D (D3) is taken from sheep’s wool. There is a great reason for this! The vitamin D most of us are deficient in is typically absorbed through the skin by the sun and thus can only be derived from animals. Given our lives are now primarily indoors (e.g. your job, house, etc.) vs. how our ancestors lived, most people are highly deficient. Vitamin D is critical to your body’s ability to absorb calcium, promote bone growth, lowers your risk of disease and helps boost your mood.

 

WHERE CAN I BUY PEPPOD?

Right here, silly: www.PepPod.com - free shipping, no hassle returns all the way! You can also find PepPod on Amazon.com, other online marketplaces and select local retailers.

 

WHY DOES IT DISSOLVE SLOWER THAN OTHER TABLETS?

PepPod contains natural ingredients, which adds 1-2 minutes of dissolve time vs. the artificial counterparts on the market. Tips to make it go faster: break it up with your fingers, dissolve in warm water and add ice. The warmer the water, the faster it goes. It’s also great hot as a tea and it is super fun to watch it dissolve so fast!

 

WANT MORE VARIETY?

Try it hot like a tea and it is super fun to watch it dissolve so fast! Throw it into your smoothie or favorite cocktail! If you are brave, add it to soda or soda water. If you are extremely brave, eat it and then send us a quick video, we do it all the time!

 

IS PEPPOD RECYCLABLE?

Why would you want to recycle a PepPod, it won’t work in your body that way!?!? Oh… you likely mean the packaging. Yes, tubes and boxes are recyclable. Our foils are the one exception – grrrr! We use them to fulfill FDA requirements but given they are foil and paper adhered together, you cannot recycle them. We do not like this and are actively looking for a better alternative. Should you have the solution, please please please reach out to us at CONTACT US and you will be our hero!

 

IS IT SAFE FOR KIDS AND PREGNANT WOMEN?

Yes, but with a personal consideration for the 71mg of green tea in a PepPod. Our official advice: consult your doctor.
