FAQs

We’ve tried to answer your most frequently asked questions below. Contact us if we have not covered a question you may have.

Do I need to be drunk to drink UNLIT®?

No! Absolutely not. Please continue to drink responsibly.

Think of our drink as a supercharged electrolyte drink infused with potent detoxification herbs and nootropics anyone can benefit from drinking it- especially those who don’t take in adequate amounts of water each day. Or, think of it as a bottle of millions of tiny hangover curing elves just waiting to get the job done. Your call. 

However you slice it, UNLIT® is committed to responsible drinking practices throughout our business. Specifically, we promote responsible drinking by fully discouraging underage drinking, educating folks on alcohol misuse, and supporting safe ride home programs.

Why UNLIT® and how does it benefit me?

We don’t believe in hairy dogs, shots, pills, magic patches, or pickles. At UNLIT® we care deeply about addressing three key features of hangover recovery in the simplest way: detoxing you, recharging you, & restoring the balance in your body.

Please note: Electrolyte replacement is not an exact science and generally a physician is required to properly assess your rehydration needs. UNLIT® follows the minimal requirements for ORS recommended by the WHO.

No really, how does UNLIT® work?

When you drink, your liver and your body begins working to break down the alcohol-induced toxins putting stress on your internal system. When you drink in excess (every human is different; “excess” is determined by numerous factors) your body begins to work overtime to breakdown the excess alcohol found in its system, plus other toxins produced because of the alcohol. When your body can’t process the alcohol toxins fast enough, the feelings of fatigue, nausea, and sluggishness begin to set in. When you don’t replenish your system properly these symptoms can pack a punch; leaving you feeling peak crappiness the next morning. Hello Hangover!

UNLIT® was created to provide crucial support for your body’s elimination and endocrine systems which helps your liver to flush out alcohol-induced toxins, your brain to repair alcohol-induced deficiencies, and to slow down diuresis through rapid nutrient replenishment and rehydration.

What is the shelf life?

Does UNLIT® contain caffiene?

Yes, UNLIT® contains approximately 90mg of caffiene(which is less than a cup of coffee) to provide a “natural feeling” energy boost and most importantly to ensure efficient delivery of our supercharged nutrients and minerals.

Does UNLIT® contain gluten or artificial sugars?

No! UNLIT® is made without gluten ingredients but is not produced in a certified gluten-free production facility. UNLIT® does not contain any artificial sugars; this is a low sugar drink containing keto-friendly sugars like Erythritol and Stevia meant to produce a natural pleasant taste

The following flavors may not be suitable to those with seafood allergies: Got the Blues – which contains chlorella powder and blue spirulina algae powder(blue majik). 

My drink looks different?

UNLIT® is produced and manufactured with plant-based, natural ingredients. We love the wonderful colors and flavors we developed in our drink. The sad reality is, natural colors are unpredictable and can vary due to temperature, time, and process.

Like many commercial juice manufacturers, we add some solids to our drinks such as zest to increase the flavor. This sediment will normally settle if the drink stands for any length of time. Like the bottle says: Shake Well – Drink Often.

Why glass bottles?

The wonderful flavors of our drink is fruit juice based; due to the risks of unpasteurized fruit juice, every bottle of UNLIT® is produced in glass bottle packaging.
