Our story ✦

We believe state-of-mind is the foundation of wellbeing. It’s why we created vive; a lightly sparkling drink, full of brain-boosting ingredients to help you think and thrive, naturally. 

Born in Melbourne in 2022 and founded by Daniel Virgona, vive’s ambition is to help people unlock a positive headspace to tackle the daily demands of life…and not just survive, but thrive. Because let’s face it, life isn’t slowing down.

We think about vive’s formula in the same way we think about the formula to wellbeing. Just like the formula for wellbeing starts with a healthy lifestyle and no nasty vices, vive’s formula contains a curated set of ingredients to support cognitive function, great taste and less than one gram of sugar.

Vive's secret to delicious flavour

Thanks to our cutting-edge flavour extraction technology, vive is full of flavour, not added sugar or artificial sweeteners and preservatives. The fruit extraction process captures the essence, aroma, and functional components of each natural fruit ingredient in its purest form.⁠

Our recipe for remarkable flavours and functional extracts involves:
✦ State-of-the-art extraction equipment⁠
✦ Years of passionate experimentation and product development⁠
✦ Scientific and engineering wizardry⁠

Low-calorie and <1g of sugar.
Vive tastes good, naturally.

Whilst we do believe in great taste, we don’t believe in high-calories and high-sugar resulting in a spike and crash. Instead, our blend of all-natural nootropic ingredients coupled with less than 1 gram of natural sugar per can supports you to be at your best, ongoing.

We use real fruit juice to keep the delicious and authentic fruit taste in all of our three flavours. 

Made locally in Ballarat, Victoria.


We use only natural nootropic ingredients, expertly formulated to boost efficacy – or better explained as packing a punch! Read about each vive ingredient below:


Derived from green tea, L-Theanine is an amino acid we don’t always get through our diets. Proven to support cognitive functions such as focus and memory and helping to balance the chemicals that regulate our mood and stress levels, it’s a key ingredient in the vive formula. 

Panax Ginseng

Standing the test of time, Panax Ginseng is a plant root which has been used in herbal medicine for centuries. In recent times, it’s been shown to benefit mental wellbeing by improving mood, suppressing stress, and helping to fight feelings of fatigue.

Green Coffee Bean

Caffeine is perhaps the most commonly known natural nootropic, made famous for turning walking zombies into fully-functioning and alert workers. We’re most familiar with the roasted form, however Green Coffee Bean holds less caffeine meaning we get focus without the jitters. Plus when combined with L-Theanine, we can maintain calm and balance.

Vitamin B Complex

We’ve got the B’s covered thanks to vive’s unique combination of complex B vitamins – B3, B5, B6, B9 and B12. This B mix supports brain function and helps our body produce the energy we need to thrive throughout the day.

Vitamin C

The humble C vitamin not only helps keep the doctor away, but also supports brain processing. It’s why it has pride of place in vive, helping regulate mood and control feelings of anxiety.
