        Packaging

        8. What made us choose this shape for the bottle?
        • We believe in breaking stereotypes with everything we make. Right from the unique blends of fruits and vegetables to the design of the bottle, we want to start conversations amongst our consumers. 
          9. The design of the bottle is carefully chosen to make it fit into your lifestyle.

            10. Why is the bottle not clear unlike other brands?
            • The bottle is made of Polypropylene, which in its purest form is cloudy. Polypropylene is the same material that is used to make infant feeding bottles.
              11. What does BPA free packaging mean?
              • BPA stands for bisphenol A. BPA is an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins since the 1960s. It is proven to be harmful for consumption. Our bottles are made from a process that avoids BPAs, hence making them safe in every form.
                12. Can I reuse the bottle?
                • The bottles are completely recyclable. Share your recycled-bottle-innovation (RBI) with us to be used on Instagram. We will have excited goodies for the unique ones.

                            13. Was mixing Modern Science and Ayurveda difficult for you?
                            • It took us precisely 7 months to crack the right combination of ayurvedic herbs and modern minerals and make the best tasting drink. So yeah, it wasn't an easy job. Read more about each drink ingredient here.
                              14. What makes your ingredients better than the rest of the bottles on the shelf?
                              • &ME is not a juice. &ME is a bioactive lifestyle beverage. It's the first drink in India that mixes ayurvedic herbs with modern micronutrients to make a tasty ready to drink beverage. So it's fruits+veg+ayurvedic herbs+minerals and a lot of thought.

                               

                               

                                Nutrients

                                15. Is this beverage enough to replace my meal?
                                • No, we recommend you to have your regular meals and have &ME to make up for all the nutrients that lack in your meal. Don't let &ME replace your meals. 
                                  16. Are the nutrients in &ME, the only nutrients that are required for my body?
                                  • &ME has trace minerals, vitamins and fibre only. Your body needs a healthy amount of carbohydrates, proteins and fat to function well. 
                                    17. Is &ME vegetarian despite having Vitamin B12 in it?
                                    • Every ingredient we use to make &ME is vegetarian. Even the Vitamin B12 is from a vegetarian source. 

                                     

                                      Consumption

                                      18. How much of &ME do I need to consume at once? 

                                      • Each bottle of &ME is a single serving. It is a drink to be had all at once over a short period preferably. They need to be consumed within 4 hours of opening the bottle. Also, refrigeration is essential after opening as there no preservatives added. For best results, We recommend 2 bottles of Rhythm (1 in the morning and 1 in the evening) at the onset of premenstrual symptoms and continue till the end of the cycle. With grace, 1 bottle a day for 21 days will show you visible effects.

                                      19. Why does the bottle of the same drink not look the same sometimes?

                                      • Nature never makes two things the same way. All our ingredients are natural and hence it is really difficult to make the final product look the same always. We try our best, but difference in two bottles is just a sign of the drink being natural. 
                                        20. Why does my drink have a bitter aftertaste?
                                        • Ayurvedic herbs don't taste pleasant at all. We tried our best and are still trying our best to mask their taste with the goodness of fruits, but bear with us until we get there!
                                          21. How many drinks can I consume in a day?
                                          • Both Grace and Rhythm can be had twice a day. 
                                            22. Can I still consume the drink if there are some particles settled down in the bottom?
                                            • The particles that will settle in the bottom over time are the ayurvedic herbs and fruit pulp. So just spin the bottle, drink and chill. 
                                              23. Is there any other drink in the market that I can have instead of &ME?
                                              • We're confident, nothing else like &ME exists in the market. But to get the same effect as &ME, you'll need a few bottles of modern supplements, a few bottles of ayurvedic syrups and a lot of spare time. So why not just indulge in a tasty drink to save your time and energy?
