)-- EoDrink Vitamin Mineral Drink System = Great Taste, Five Times Nutrients of RTD Vitamin Waters, No Sugar, No Calories, No Carbs, or No Sodium, and Reusable Bottle Helps Environment
SGN Nutrition, the company dedicated to providing the highest quality and best tasting nutritional products, today announced the launch of their new EcoDrink Vitamin and Mineral nutrient beverage system. Unlike many other drinks and waters supposedly containing healthy ingredients, one serving of EcoDrink not only tastes great, but contains five times the vitamins and minerals of the closest Ready-To-Drink (rtd) competitor, with no sugar and thus, no calories and no carbs or sodium.
“We wanted to create a product that tasted unbelievable, and also gave people the nutrition they need,” said Anthony Misner, Chief Executive Officer of Sgn Nutrition. “EcoDrink is the result. It has great nutritional value and does a lot for the health of the body in the face of today’s problems with poor nutrition and obesity. At the same time it is great-tasting and very refreshing; we know from our research that people will not sacrifice taste for nutrition, and with EcoDrink, people can have both.”
EcoDrink is the result of two years of development and product testing to find just the right balance of nutritional efficacy and outstanding taste. SGN Nutrition worked extensively with the country’s best flavor consultants to produce a product that would be beneficial to health as well as flavorful and refreshing.
EcoDrink contains fresh, individually sealed vitamins and minerals that have not, like some competitive Ready-To-Drink products, gone through a hot-fill process of 180 degrees, which kills the efficacy of the vitamins. The EcoDrink Vitamin and Mineral formula includes 100% of essential ingredients for daily adult health such as Vitamins A, C, E, B3, B6, B12, and D3, as well as minerals and nutrients such as Calcium, Magnesium, Chromium, Selenium, Biotin and Molybdenum. The formula also contains healthy amounts of other vitamins and minerals recommended for health, such as Folic Acid, Potassium, Lycopene and Lutein.
The fresh and individually-sealed aspect of the vitamins and nutrients in EcoDrink preserves their efficacy due to their ability to be more efficiently absorbed by the body than those contained in the average multivitamin pill. Vitamin pills are often full of fillers to increase their size, contain binders to glue the ingredients together, and are coated with a hard shellac. The top three competitive vitamin pills are composed of up to 60% fillers, binders, coloring, wax, lubricant, and coating, all of which serve no nutritional purpose.
Environmental health, too.
The powdered drink mix, which is offered in a choice of Orange Citrus and Mixed Berry flavors, is sold in individual packs which can be poured into the accompanying reusable 16-ounce bottle and mixed with filtered or tap water. The inclusion of the bottle follows the ideals of SGN Nutrition, which not only strives to develop products that help people be healthier, but also hopes to have an impact on people’s attitudes toward the environment.
“People in the U.S. consume more packaged drinks per capita than any other country,” said Clegg Hubbell, Chief Operating Officer for Sgn Nutrition. “Unfortunately, very few of those containers, be they cans or plastic bottles, make it into a recycling bin. With EcoDrink, people can buy our powder mix, shake it up in the bottle with some water and they are good to go. With our system, people can use just one bottle per month, as opposed to 30 plastic bottles. We’re helping them develop not only healthier habits for themselves, but also for the environment.”
The reusable EcoDrink bottle is 100% Bisphenol A Free, Made in the United States with FDA approved polypropylene plastic, environmentally friendly and dishwasher safe. This product line meets the demand for safer methods of enjoying energy and vitamin/mineral beverages, while providing superior nutrition and superior taste. Bisphenol A has been linked to cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and liver enzyme abnormalities. EcoDrink is also available as EcoDrink Vitamin and Mineral Energy formula, which, compared to other energy drinks, offers ten times the vitamins and minerals, while still providing an energy boost. EcoDrink Energy also has a pleasant-tasting Orange Citrus or Tropical Berry flavor, and again eschews calories and sugar for fresh vitamins and minerals that are easily absorbed. EcoDrink Vitamin Mineral Energy formula is also packaged with a reusable bottle.
The EcoDrink nutrient beverage system is available in Southern California Costco Warehouses and on the company’s website at www.sgnnutrition.com.
