New product from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. On Monday, the Skyscraper star, who has his own tequila, invested in a water brand and recently launched his second ice cream collaboration, took to his Instagram account to announce the launch of his latest venture — his own energy drink called ZOA.

“Ladies & gents, it’s our honor to introduce you to @zoaenergy 🍃. The first of its kind, CLEAN & HEALTHY energy drink that champions the everyday warriors in all of us,” The Rock captioned a video clip introducing ZOA to the world. According to the former professional wrestler, who is known for his ridiculously epic cheat meals, ZOA is a “healthy and immunity supporting energy drink” that will be available for purchase in March.

The Rock noted that each serving of ZOA contains “100% Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin B, Essential Aminos, Camu Camu, Turmeric, Antioxidants, Acerola, Choline and finally, the healthy dose of 160mgs of natural caffeine from green tea extracts and green coffee beans.”

ZOA was created by The Rock, Dany Garcia — the first female owner of a major professional sports league in the United States — fitness professional Dave Rienzi and entrepreneur John Shulman. “ZOA is formulated to support the immune system while enhancing focus, providing pre-and post-workout hydration, supplementing amino intake, and enhancing energy levels – all in a delicious drink that is an easy addition to the hustle and bustle of everyday life,” the press release explained, noting the ingredients mentioned above.

However, even though The Rock is touting ZOA as a “clean and healthy” energy drink, it’s impossible to know exactly how healthy (or not) it is without seeing the full nutrition label, especially given that energy drinks are generally packed with caffeine, sugar, and calories. “In general, I have strong reservations about energy drinks – many are unregulated by the FDA, making them dangerous supplements with poor regulation and little verification of ingredients,” says Dana Angelo White, MS, RD, ATC, and nutrition consultant for Food Network. “These drinks are appealing but not a healthy way to get energy! Plus, energy really comes from calories, not stimulants like caffeine.”
