For over a decade, Ben and David, OLIPOP's founders, have shared a vision of a healthier, tastier future. Their quest for a product that could undermine the old guard of soda behemoths led them to OLIPOP: a thoughtfully crafted tonic that found its taste in wholesome, hardworking ingredients instead of spoonfuls of sugar. Ben and David assembled a global team of leading human gut microbiome research pioneers with diverse expertise spanning digestive health, prebiotic structures, model gut systems and gut microbiome-supportive nutritional strategies. They work with them to translate cutting edge research and findings into OLIPOP's product development.Humans are large life forms composed of small life forms. If we respect and intelligently nourish the life within us (our microbiome), it will repay us in kind. The same goes for our environment, our neighbors and our world. Humans have learned a staggering amount about the human microbiome in the last decade, but there’s more to uncover. It’s OLIPOP's mission to adapt and improve their product in correlation with these findings. Life is too short not to enjoy it, and too long to spoil it. People can have their sweet cravings without sacrificing health. Soda is a shortcut with no long term benefits. OLIPOP is an off ramp to a healthy and delicious experience.
