Optimum Nutrition has expanded its Essential Amin.O. Energy product line by introducing a new drink powder and ready-to-drink beverage, both containing added electrolytes.
According to the brand, the new products in the Essential Amin.O. Energy Plus Electrolytes line contain amino acids which will help to support muscle recovery and the electrolytes will replace the electrolytes lost through sweat.
Both products contain 100mg of natural caffeine sourced from green tea and green coffee bean extract per serving, as well as 5g of amino acids and no added sugar.
The powder contains 5 calories per serving and is available in four flavours: Pineapple Twist, Tangerine Wave, Watermelon Splash and Cranberry Lemonade Breeze.
Meanwhile, the sparkling RTD beverage comes in five varieties: Watermelon, Strawberry Burst, Blueberry Lemonade and Grape, and drinks in the range contain between 5-15 calories per serving.
Trevin Morton, senior brand manager for Optimum Nutrition said: “Athletes love our Essential Amin.O. Energy line for a great tasting, anytime energy boost.
“The addition of electrolytes, amino acids and caffeine from natural sources means Essential Amin.O. Energy Plus Electrolytes supports performance, endurance and active living.”
“Optimum Nutrition innovates to meet the needs and tastes of athletes.
“The growing popularity of sparkling beverages inspired us to create an entirely new, refreshing RTD perfect to grab-and-go.”
Both new products are available nationwide in the US from nutrition retailers.
