Karma Culture LLC created Karma Wellness Water, which keeps the vitamins separate from the water in a custom cap until consumption. According to the company, vitamins deteriorate in water, which causes premixed vitamin-fortified beverages to lose their potency over time. The beverage comes in five varieties, each of which offers a function. Mind, an Orange Mango variety, is formulated for sharper thinking; Body, in Raspberry Guava Jackfruit flavor, is formulated for fitness acceleration; Spirit, available in Passionfruit Green Tea flavor, is formulated for mood elevation; Balance, an Acai Pomberry variety, is formulated for an immunity boost; and Vitality, in Pineapple Coconut flavor, is formulated for healthy hydration. Each variety also contains seven essential vitamins, superfruits, antioxidants, herbal extracts, amino acids, minerals and electrolytes. An 18-ounce bottle has 20 calories and retails for about $2.39 to $2.89.
