Angela is a powerhouse blending her academic prowess, a doctoral education in pathology from St. Louis University School of Medicine, with an unwavering passion for wellness. Her leap into entrepreneurship wasn’t the conventional path but a heart-led choice after moving from China to St. Louis. And thus, Karviva Beverages was born—a testament to Angela's quest for healthier, soul-nourishing drinks.
In the heart of this tale lies a mother of two, on a quest for nutritious, low-sugar elixirs. From its roots as Karuna to its evolved form as Karviva, the brand represents a fusion of ancient Chinese Medicine wisdom and modern nutritional expertise. It's more than just a drink; it's a symphony of flavors designed to uplift your spirits and nurture your body.
What sets Karviva apart is Angela's scientific finesse. The special distillation process she crafted keeps the goodness of whole plants alive in every bottle, creating elixirs brimming with antioxidants and prebiotics. It’s like a wizardry of flavors and nutrients in perfect harmony.
But Karviva isn’t just about drinks; it’s a vessel for passing down ancient wisdom. Angela’s touch of compassion makes wellness accessible to everyone, creating a beautiful narrative woven into every label.
Six years have woven a colorful tapestry for Karviva, spreading its roots across 16 states and gracing the shelves of over 1,000 stores, including renowned retailers like Whole Foods, Stop & Shop, Giant Foods, and H-E-B. Awards have followed—a MidAmerica Emmy and a World Beverage Innovation Award—but for Angela, it's the smiles and health it brings that truly matter.
And as the story unfolds, Angela's vision expands beyond borders. Karviva isn’t just a local gem; it's a global ambassador of well-being, a bridge connecting cultures through the language of health and taste. Her dream? Sharing not just a drink but a piece of ancient wisdom that transcends boundaries and unites hearts.
Now, let's gaze into the future, a future where Karviva's unique lineup of natural goodies is as common as a smile. Our next five years are all about making these natural wonders accessible to everyone. But it's not just about what's in the bottle; it's about the stories and wisdom we share.
Education is our secret sauce. We're on a mission to unravel the ancient traditions in wellness, shouting from the rooftops about the transformative power of food as medicine. Karviva isn't just a drink; it's a lesson in well-being.
And here's the exciting part: we're honing in on those facing health challenges. Our goal? Empower them with Karviva products and a sprinkle of knowledge. Because wellness isn't a luxury; it's a right for everyone.
So, with each delightful gulp of Karviva's concoctions, you’re not just savoring a drink, you’re savoring Angela's dedication to crafting a world where wellness, joy, and tradition intertwine in a symphony of delicious harmony. Cheers to Angela Zeng and her soulful journey with Karviva!
