Maintaining a healthy and well-balanced regime plays a vital role in the modern digital lifestyle. To this end, performance-enhancing food and beverages can serve as effective delivery vehicles in achieving a new era in wellbeing. By incorporating powerful natural bioactive formulations in “conventional” food and beverage products, a new generation of products can deliver tremendous value for personal performance-enhancing applications such as sports endurance, long-lasting healthy energy, relief from stress and anxiety, and enhanced immunity.
However, in 98% of current functional food and beverage products, powerful impacting ingredients are non-existent due to the array of the inherent negative properties associated with natural bioactives. Many of these natural ingredients and formulations suffer from notoriously foul-taste, negative sensory experience, spike and crash phenomena, and gastrointestinal side-effects. What’s more, branded food and beverage manufacturers face enormous challenges with incompatibilities associated with incorporating these natural bioactives into manufacturing and logistics SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures), as well as with the extra costs resulting from the functionality enhancement.
Our mission is to enable performance-enhancing ingredients and formulations to fulfill their true science-backed potential in food and beverage nutrition. With innovative technologies we, at Vital technologies, have tasked ourselves with creating a disruptive category of innovative wellness products based on new methods to optimize usage of powerful, consumer-recognized natural formulations overcoming all current obstacles and challenges.
Vital Technologies was founded in 2014 with the mission of creating a new and disruptive category of powerful, consumer-recognized wellness products. Based on pharma-class R&D and dozens of human studies, in 2019 we introduced our first application set CUUR® for powerful fast-acting beverage recovery products, exclusively incorporating botanicals, amino acids, electrolytes and vitamins. Our product strategy focuses on a multi-target integrative scientific approach to deliver powerful fast-acting products for the array of daily distress episodes (such as: sports performance, sustained energy, elderly wellbeing, immunity, etc.) characterizing the modern and demanding lifestyle of healthy individuals across the globe.
