Each of the “superfoods” have their function. Acai is composed of numerous antioxidants, including Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and phytonutrients called anthocyanins. Cupuacu contains antioxidant phytonutrients called polyphenols. These are common in green tea and grape seeds. Yerba Mate is chemically similar to caffeine because Yerba Mate contains mateine. However, mateine is not as strong as caffeine and has a more subtle affect on the human body. The Brazilian apples add natural sweetness to the flavor of the drink.

However, Fruta Vida is expensive, lacking in taste, aftertaste, and kick, has an ingredient that is a cousin of caffeine, neglects the important of diet and exercise, and does not claim to prevent or improve diseases. It seems to be just another energy drink on the market that claims a Brazilian rainforest origin.
