Written by Max Goldberg –
While shopping at my local organic market in New York City the other day, I spotted a drink that I had never seen before called Zana Juices.
What immediately drew my attention wasn’t the large bottle size but rather its eye-popping price tag of $55 for 32 ounces.
“$55 for what?” I asked myself.
After several long conversations with company founder Thomas Corbett, I concluded that Zana Juices is the most impressive and mind-blowing drink I have come across. Ever.
WHAT IS ZANA JUICES?
Zana Juices is a fermented probiotic drink that contains organic vegetables, filtered water, and 15 different strains of beneficial bacteria. In each 3 ounce serving, there are 1 billion cells of beneficial bacteria.
According to Thomas Corbett, most probiotics are grown in cow’s milk, soy milk or rice milk, and the white powder you see in most probiotics is the milk, soy, or rice it was grown in.
Additionally, almost all of these probiotics are not organic.
This means that the soy is likely to be genetically-modified, the milk could very well be from cows who were fed GMOs and injected with synthetic growth hormones, and the rice was probably sprayed with a cocktail of toxic chemicals. Given that so many supplements currently sitting on the shelves of health food stores contain GMOs (the popular ingredient maltodextrin is one prime example of this), the lack of purity in probiotics shouldn’t come as a big surprise.
Another key differential is that nearly all probiotics sitting on store shelves or in refrigerators are “freeze-dried”. While the cold does not kill the bacteria – it renders them dormant – they don’t become activated again until a certain period of time after entering a person’s body.
The probiotics in Zana Juices are fully alive and are never dormant, and they go to work immediately upon entering a person’s body.
THE VERY, VERY UNIQUE GROWING PROCESS
What makes Zana Juices so special is the way that the drink is produced.
Thomas Corbett grows all of his own vegetables, which means he knows exactly how and where they have been farmed.
But the real magic takes place in the soil. Traditional agriculture, with its toxic chemicals, has devastated the soil quality in our country and even the soil on organic farms, while better than conventional farms, is severely lacking.
That is why Thomas takes granite and five other rocks and crushes them into a powder. This powder is then mixed into the organic soil and provides all of the very important minerals that the soil and vegetables need but don’t have.
Thomas says that when he is planting each vegetable, the soil is tested in a laboratory under a microscope to determine whether it has the exact right combination of minerals and nutrients for that specific vegetable. A tomato, for example, might require different minerals than a green pepper. So, each vegetable will be grown in the most ideal and nutritious soil possible.
But wait, it gets better.
The farm is then flooded once a week with a liquid solution that contains the 15 different probiotic strains. The plants and bacteria end up eating both the soil and the powder from the rocks throughout the entire growing process. And the bacteria works its way into the inside of the plant.
This process is so powerful and the plants are so healthy that the carrots continue to grow throughout the winter, despite having ice and three feet of snow on top of them.
Once the vegetables are picked, they are added to filtered water and are sealed in a tight container until the fermentation process ends, which is roughly 3 to 4 weeks. The liquid is then strained and bottled for consumers.
While Thomas Corbett makes absolutely no medical claims with this product, he said people have had unheard of results with Zana Juices. This includes complete reversal of terminal diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, kidney failure, and diabetes.
In fact, the product was initially designed for his friend who had both mesothelioma and chronic fatigue syndrome. Most people live about one year with mesothelioma. Yet, Thomas Corbett’s friend lived 8 years – all because of Zana Juices – and he regained his health to such a degree that he quit retirement and resumed his career as a lawyer.
The most remarkable story that he shared with me was the one woman who was able to take herself off of the liver transplant list because her liver had completely regenerated itself.
I spoke with one person whose lungs and kidneys had completely shut down and he was on both a ventilator and dialysis. He started drinking the Zana Juices and within a very short period of time, both of these conditions completely went away.
Thomas Corbett said stories such as these happen all of the time.
“No one has ever said to me ‘I have taken probiotics and I cured myself from cancer’. But I know these diseases can be fixed. The endless number of testimonials speak for themselves.”
Interestingly, Thomas Corbett said that Dr. Brian Clement of the Hippocrates Health Institute, who is well-known for his amazing results through putting people on a raw vegan diet, was visiting Zana Juices just the other day and “was blown away” by what he saw.
(It is important to note these are not results from clinical trials but are merely stories from people who claim great success with this product.)
The fact that Thomas Corbett is growing his own vegetables, crushing stones into a powder form to add to the soil, flooding the farm with a 15-strain probiotic solution, and looking at everything under a microscope indicates that an unprecedented level of care and research is going into this product. I cannot imagine that vegetables are being grown like this anywhere in the world.
I am currently drinking about 3 ounces per day (the recommended amount) of two of the flavors, the Bio and Ginger. The Bio has a slightly sour taste but much less so than beet kvass. The Ginger has a sour taste as well and some sharpness from the ginger.
What have I noticed so far?
Because I consider myself to be a person in very good health, I don’t see any life-altering changes just yet. Given my condition, this isn’t a big surprise.
However, I definitely do have more energy, which Thomas Corbett said is to be expected because the juices are electrically charged.
While my health may be good from the outside, I am sure that I have plenty of harmful bacteria lurking inside of me that may cause serious problems down the line. So, I believe this drink is helping me out a lot, especially in the long-term, and is definitely strengthening my immune system. Having my body flooded with these powerful probiotics can only be a positive.
A few other fascinating things about Zana Juices:
The fiber and water don’t separate, something incredibly unusual for a juice. No shaking required.
Apparently, the vegetables on Thomas Corbett’s farm smell. Yes, smell. I never knew that vegetables smell but when grown in super-healthy soil, they have a very strong smell, especially the celery. ‘
If you’re skeptical about the success stories, all you have to do is try these juices for yourself. On the product’s label, Zana Juices says that it offers a money-back guarantee, with no questions asked, if results are not achieved.
Maybe even stronger evidence is that the company has 10 employees with thousands of customers over the years, and Zana Juices didn’t even have a website until yesterday! It has been all word of mouth, which means that something is obviously working.
Zana Juices can be purchased at select health food markets in the New York City area, including Integral Yoga Natural Foods and High Vibe, and the company ships its products nationwide.

Zana Juices is more proof of just how important the soil is — it’s everything.
