Who is Live Beverages?

Live Beverages is a small company started in 2013 to help people take simple steps towards a healthier lifestyle.  💪🏻  Our Founder developed the first Live Beverages for the express purpose of getting his dad to kick the soda habit.  We have carried that mission well beyond his dad, helping millions of people take simple steps to better living.

We are based in Austin, Texas.

Ingredient/Product FAQs

Live Raw & Organic Kombucha is cold-brewed for a smoother, less harsh taste.  Most kombuchas are hot brewed, which releases more tannins in the tea, leading to a more bitter tasting tea.

Just flavors and organic stevia extract, which help us deliver our big taste with just 5 calories.

Live Beverages are made with Billions of living probiotics to aid your gut health!  😊

Live Probiotic Tea Shots are produced with more than 2 Billion CFUs of probiotics per 2 oz bottle.

Live Raw & Organic Kombucha’s probiotic count will vary from batch to batch as the probiotic in kombucha occurs naturally in our fermentation process.  But rest assured that Live Raw & Organic Kombucha is 99.7% Pure Kombucha and good for your gut!

We recommend that you refrigerate Live Beverages when you get home for optimal taste and to prolong shelf life.   Shelf life and temperature can affect the level of probiotics, and excess heat can cause the probiotics to activate before reaching your gut.  The probiotic in our shots and soda is spore-based, which means it stays dormant until it reaches the right temperature.  For more about the probiotic used in our shots and soda, click here.

Live Probiotic Tea Shots and Probiotic Soda have Bacillus Subtilis, a spore-based probiotic.  Click here to learn more about Probiotics.  💪

Live's Probiotic Tea Shots and Probiotic Soda do not add sugar.

All real kombuchas add sugar to initiate the fermentation process.  Sugar is the food for the fermentation process.  We do not add sugar or fruit juices to the product once it is finished fermenting; we achieve our great taste with natural flavors and organic stevia to keep our sugar content low.

Live Raw & Organic Kombucha needs to be refrigerated until you drink it.  Live Probiotic Tea Shots and Probiotic Soda do not require refrigeration, though we strongly recommend that you refrigerate these products once you get home for optimal taste and because they contain living probiotics that prefer a colder environment until they reach your gut.
