Study on Poppi's ACV drink by Citruslabs

Citruslabs seal trademarked (2).png


Poppi is founded by husband and wife team Allison and Stephen, who created their flavored soda after Allison discovered how healing apple cider vinegar (ACV) was for her chronic digestion issues. The pair sought ways to make the prebiotic powerhouse ingredient more palatable and accessible for a wider range of people, and their naturally flavored fruit and ACV soda was born.

What is the ACV drink?

Poppi developed their own ACV-containing prebiotic soda composed of sparkling filtered water, apple cider vinegar, fruit juice, organic cane sugar, natural flavors and stevia. The soda comes in a variety of flavors like raspberry rose, grape, strawberry lemon, and more.

How does ACV support Gut Health?

Spray on Shampoo & conditioner promises to leave behind moisturized skin, shiny hair, and a light Vanilla Ginger scent for dogs.

Superfoods vs Nutraceuticals

Superfoods and Nutraceuticals are two buzzwords in the consumer product industry, but what do they actually mean?
Nutraceuticals are any biologically active compounds extracted from food products that may provide health benefits. The compounds are worked into products such as supplements. Superfoods, on the other hand, are fresh or processed foods that may provide health benefits on top of their nutritional content.

Benefits of Clinical Research for Poppi and Other Brands

Unusual superfood products such as Poppi's ACV drink are popping (Poppi-ing?) up all over the place, making it more important than ever for brands to find ways to make their product claims stand out. Enter: Clinical studies and other forms of research. Scientific evidence should be used as the bedrock for superfood product claims in order for brands to be transparent and trustworthy toward consumers. Poppi's study with us allowed them to do just that!

Study results for Poppi's ACV drink
