Zurvita is a network marketing company that sells health drinks and various other supplements via a network of private distributors. The Zeal for Life range of drinks contain a combination of vitamins and antioxidant rich ingredients that may support general health.
Zeal for Life is a health drink that is available in many different flavours and comes as a powder to which you simply add liquid such as water or your favourite soda. It is also available in instant form in small bottles. Zeal contains lots of different herbal ingredients in unknown quantities as well as some vitamins and minerals so effects may be unpredictable. Zeal For Life comes from MLM company Zurvita so is sold via a network of independent distributors called consultants.
Potential side effects may include; headaches, jitteriness, nausea, acid reflux, stomach upset, diarrhoea, vomiting, allergic reaction.
Zeal For Life is expensive. The recommended retail price for a tub of powder (30 servings / 420g) is $74.95 if you buy from a consultant’s website.
A pack of 24 single serving bottles costs $104.95 if you buy from a consultant.
Sign up to auto-shipping as a preferred customer and you get a 15% discount on all orders. These types of agreement are not always easy to cancel, so we would not advise this option.
Buy from Amazon or eBay and you can find cheaper deals. We have seen Zeal in powder form (30 servings) for around $63.00. The individual bottles (24) are available for around $54.00.
We are not very impressed by Zeal For Life. This so called health drink may perk you up and some customers seem to like it but it is very expensive and in our opinion just not worth the price. As with most products sold via Network Marketing, the advertising is confusing and there is zero proof that this health drink will have any major health benefits. You could probably get better effects by drinking a good quality fruit juice and taking a vitamin supplement.
The advertising for Zeal For Life looks amateurish because it is sold via the network of consultants but don’t be fooled. This is a multi million business. However we feel it is unlikely that should you become a consultant you are going to earn a proper living by selling these products. You will have to pay a lot of money out to join the scheme and in our opinion there are much better deals around both for business opportunities and for health drinks.
We do not recommend Zeal For Life.

The Zeal range is aimed at weight loss and at general health. The principle product is a drink called Zeal For Life , sometimes referred to as Wellness which is a powder that you add to water in order to make a health drink. Flavours include Tropic Dream, Wild Berry and Classic formula and the aim of the supplement is to boost general vitality and well being. Many people also take it to support weight loss.
It is hard to be objective about Zeal. Although the Zeal drinks are touted for health and said to contain ingredients from around the world such as Acai from South America, Turmeric from India and Goji berries from the Himalayas- which all sounds great – we have no idea of knowing the ingredient quantities. This information is not available to the consumer so it is hard to judge just what the effects will be.
Investigating further we found that the Zurvita Holdings company was established in 2008 and is a global direct marketing company operating in Australia, Canada, Puerto Rico, Germany, the Dominican Republic, and the United Kingdom but with the prime focus in the USA. The company generates a whopping $70 million global revenue annually and was founded by born again Christian couple Mark and Tracy Jarvis and is based in Houston, TX.
If you want to join as a distributor yourself it is easy. There is a choice of options which cost between $69.95 – the cheapest option and $499 at the time of writing.
As well as Zeal For Life, there is a weight loss range includes four products: a cleansing drink called Zeal Cleanse, a weight loss supplement called Zeal Burn, a Protein Shake and a Wellness multivitamin. The idea is that you take these four supplements in combination. They do not seem to be as popular as Zeal For Life, the flagship product so for the purposes of this review we will be focusing on the drink rather than the additional products.
Take once a day when required. Many people drink Zeal in the mornings.
In truth the information about Zurvita Zeal For Life is confusing. Over the course of our Watchdog research we have seen our fair share of confusing products and are used to picking our way through substandard or tricksy information but have never seen such a jumble of confusing information as with Zurvita.
There are lots of videos and claims about miraculous ingredients but very little real info. None of the websites – and each distributor has his or her own designated business website, come with any real information. There is no central website or definitive guide.
This is because the products are sold via direct marketing so the idea is that you buy from a personal connection who then fully explains the products and how they will help you.
There is no official home website that we could find.
All the Zurvita distributors have their own personal website but seem to have a standard front page that explains about the product. There is very little real information. Here is an example,
For thousands of years, native cultures around the world have taken advantage of the natural, life enhancing properties that are contained in Zeal Wellness. Modern scientists are confirming their real life stories of heightened well-being, validating centuries of folklore. We have now discovered these natural remedies are the keys to an exceptional longer, healthier, and happier life.
This all sounds lovely of course but there is no real information about who these native cultures are, or more importantly the natural remedies and whether or not they have any scientific proof.
The Wellness drink is explained too,
Wellness takes the guesswork out of it with our all-in-one natural nutritional formula. Simply add water or juice to the Zeal Wellness synergistic blend and drink at least one serving per day to get all the nutrients, antioxidants and vitamins your personal body needs. The Zeal Wellness formula dissolves quickly and tastes great. It helps you recapture your youthful mind, body, and soul. Make your life, Zeal for life.
Again beyond telling us that Wellness is a drink, there is zero information about it.
It is impossible to really know if Zeal For Life works because we are not told what it does beyond some rather vague assertions. If this drink does help you recapture your “youthful mind, body and soul” as promised – it is going to be difficult to prove one way or another. Some individual customers say they feel great on it, other people say it has no effect whatsoever but there is nothing scientifically proven.
There is an impressive looking Scientific Advisory Board – a team, of what looks like trained doctors and MDs. This creates the impression that Zeal For Life has been scientifically researched. It has not. In addition it is important to remember that there is no evidence or research for any Zurvita products and despite its slightly amateur appearance thanks to the distributors’ various websites, that this is a major business worth over $70 million a year.
However, this drink does contain vitamins and minerals as well as unknown quantities of ingredients such as Ginseng. It contains Guarana too and that contains caffeine so will give you a lift. You might find that Zeal For Life works to pick you up when you are flagging and it is probably much healthier than a standard energy drink like Red Bull, if you just add the powder to plain water. That said side effects could be an issue as you cannot really know what you are taking.
Zeal for Life is a powdered supplement that you add to liquid in order to make a drink. Serving size is equal to one scoop of 14g. It is also available as an instant drink in individual sized bottles. Quantities are not disclosed and this combined with the sheer number of them makes the effects of this supplement look unpredictable.
Other ingredients are as follows;
Rice bran, rice germ, Fructooligosaccharide from chicory root, fructose, natural flavourings, citric acid, potassium citrate, Stevia, beetroot powder (colouring), Guarana seed extract with caffeine, aloe Vera, ionic and fulvic minerals, l argnine, glycine, l lysine, turmeric, moringa olifeira, maca powder, yeast beta glucan powder, lychee powder, grape extract, wild blueberry powder, green tea extract, alfalfa, broccoli powder, cranberry powder, fennel seed, Goji berry extract , acai berry extract, noni juice powder, chlorella powder, yerba mate powder, Gotu kola powder, milk thistle powder, Bacopa extract, ashwaganda powder, red ginseng powder, kudzu powder, ornithine.
Zeal for Life contains caffeine so you may experience caffeine related side effects and although most of the ingredients look pretty safe some such as Kudzu powder can cause allergic reactions and other side effects.
These may include
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Do not take if you have or have had a hormonally sensitive medical condition because kudzu may act like oestrogen in the body. Speak to your doctor first if you have an underlying medical condition or are taking medication in case of interactions. Cease use if you experience an allergic reaction or any side effects and seek medical advice.
There are lots of customer reviews for Zeal For Life on Amazon USA and many people seem very happy with this drink.
One lady writes,
This Zeal is great, I was usually low in energy and feeling lazy and annoyed of driving a lot, after taking everyday first thing in the morning along with an ok breakfast, my mood started changing, I feel more awake and over all happy.
I’ve been using for over a year. This product is great. I have more energy now. Love it would recommend to anyone.
This stuff has changed my life
Some customers have mentioned the price,
Love this stuff, but it’s getting to be very expensive.
Some customers have complained as this reviewer said,
PLEASE DONT TAKE THIS PRODUCT!!! IT’S JUST A SCAM!!
The majority of customer reviews are positive but it is important to remember that with any product sold via direct marketing you always get a lot of positive reviews.
Some people simply want to encourage others to buy because they need to sell, but in many cases they just believe in the products so much that they become very evangelical about it and want to spread the word. This does not necessarily mean that the products are any good.
Zeal For Life does not come with a money-back guarantee.
You can buy Zeal For Life from a Zurvita distributor. They all have websites so you can buy online or alternatively find one who lives in your area and meet with them direct. For example we found one website run by a Zurvita consultant called Keith Taylor from Oklahoma who is selling Wild Grape Flavour Zeal (30 servings) for $74.95.
Zeal For Life distributors are also operating in large numbers on Facebook and other social media so are very easy to find.
You can also buy Zeal For Life via sites such as eBay and Amazon.
The drinks are available in a choice of flavours and formats.
The powders come in 420g canisters (30 servings) and cost anything between $53.00 and $67.00 – the prices are fixed by the various sellers so vary.
You can also buy Zeal For Life as a readymade drink in individual serving bottles (24 servings). These cost between $44.00 and $56.00 or thereabouts via Amazon USA. At the time of writing Zeal For Life is not available on Amazon UK or Amazon Australia.
