Q: What is the nutritional content?
A: Click on each individual drink on our product page to find out its nutritional page.
Q: Do you use real fruit?
A: We use a concentrate made from real fruit and berries sourced from different parts of the world, subject to the season. At NOA, we strive to achieve consistent high quality and as a result, we purchase only the best quality fruit and berries for our drinks.
Q: What are your active ingredients?
A: The active ingredients are green tea and Melissa (lemon balm).
For thousands of years, green tea has been used to improve concentration, among many health benefits. Numerous scientific studies conclude that green tea stimulates the alpha brain waves associated with a relaxed, but alert, state — the same frequencies generated by both yoga and meditation. Green tea is also an antioxidant that protects the body’s cells against oxidative stress.
Lemon balm is a herb with a long history of medicinal use, particularly for stress reduction and anti-anxiety treatment. Clinical studies have proven lemon balm’s contribution to optimal relaxation.
Q: Where do you produce NOA Relax & Focus?
A: The idea of NOA Relax & Focus is born in Sweden and it is produced in Germany. Currently there are no facilities in the Nordic region that live up to the quality standards we have set. Most of the ingredients come from other parts of the EU, but a few ingredients do come from countries outside of Europe due to regional harvest cycles.
Q: What is NOA’s environment philosophy / policy?
A: Our ambition is to have no negative impact on the environment and we constantly strive for improvement. For us, this means first and foremost how our drinks are produced, and that we are utilizing the most effective means of production possible (such as recyclable packaging). However, it is also about how we behave. Our company strives for zero-emissions–including a corporate travel policy that promotes public transportation (discourages flights), the purchasing of organic office supplies, etc.
Q: Why do you use a plastic bottle?
A: Plastic weighs less and is therefore more environmentally-friendly to transport. NOA Relax & Focus is a product that is bought for immediate consumption – ’on the go’ – and we believe that a plastic bottle is preferable as it is lighter than glass, does not break as easily, and above all is re-sellable. The bottle can also be re-used.
