FAQs

Reason’s Nutrition Beverage and Powder can be consumed up to 4 times a day using the recommended serving size. Beverage is a calorie dense product providing 1.4 calorie/ml.

Reason beverage is rich, calorie dense product with high amount of beneficial Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT). Some people, who are
unaccustomed to consuming high amount of MCT– may get an upset stomach consuming large amount of Reason beverage for the first time. These symptoms resolve after 30−45 minutes. With regular usage of the product, symptoms tend to fade away completely. 

If you notice any of these symptoms, we have few expert tips to minimize these effects:

  • Start with small servings: For very sensitive stomachs, we advise to start with no more than 2-3 (1 ounce) sips of our Nutrition Beverage. Take this twice daily and gradually double the dose over next week or two.
  • Do not take on an empty stomach: Start with a cracker or small snack prior to consuming Reason. If that’s not possible, drink 4 ounces of warm water before and after.
  • Hydrate yourself: Dehydration increases stomach cramps and discomfort. You may also dilute the product as needed with ice cube of water.

Yes. Reason products have less than 1 gram of lactose per serving (0.5 gram in 11-ounce beverage) that makes it tolerable for anyone with lactose intolerance.

Yes – as long as you are able to take a daily multivitamin supplement. Reason beverage provides all the needed protein, calories and fats (macronutrients). Our philosophy at Reason is that the need for calories and protein – surpasses the need for micronutrients – vitamins and minerals. Most people end up taking excessive vitamins but not enough calories. By taking a separate multivitamin tablet one can ensure that all the daily requirements are met without overdoing it. Additionally, people undergoing certain chemotherapy should not take certain vitamins and antioxidants. Reason Beverage does not have any added vitamins or minerals so that it may not interfere with such treatments. This makes Reason’s Nutrition Beverage safe to consume during chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

Our knowledge about cholesterol, fats and carbohydrates has improved immensely over the past decade. Earlier suggestion about the negative health impact of saturated fats has come under new scrutiny – mainly because this recommendation was based on poorly designed studies and evidence was mainly anecdotal. Plant-derived oils such as avocado oil, palm oil and coconut oil have high amount of saturated fats yet in a recent clinical trial, people who consumed these oils did not show any increased risk of high cholesterol or coronary artery disease.[1]  Other small clinical trials have shown beneficial effects of using coconut oil in patients with dyslipidemia, fatty liver, anorexia nervosa and epilepsy.[2] Although more research is always beneficial, the current evidence suggests that consuming plant-based oils is not harmful to cholesterol or heart health.

At Reason we firmly believe that when your body needs protein, nothing beats the nutrition profile, bioavailability and digestibility of milk protein. It has all the essential amino acids and ideal proportion of branch chain amino acids (BCAA).

We use the finest milk protein available in the world imported from the Netherlands. This European milk protein is notable for its purity, great taste and heat stability. Europe has stringent standards for animal welfare and dairy industry – ensuring no hormones, antibiotics or artificial means are used to raise the milk production. We benefit greatly from our collaboration with European dairy industry.

Our beverage has thin consistency at room temperature. It is a pasteurized product packaged and served using state-of-the-art Tetra Pak® Prisma technology.
