Natural energy drinks

Solixir is a new, all natural, functional drink brand whose Awaken formula is made for gentle energy.

Botanicals like Yerba Maté, Gingseng and Angelica Root target brain stimulation and better blood flow for a gentle and healthy lift.


Hangover remedies

Gwyneth Paltrow loves Mercy, a beverage sworn to end a body’s hangover from a night of drinking — so much so, in fact, that she invested in it. Mercy focuses on replenishing the antioxidant glutathione. It's caffeine-free; contains amino acids, vitamins and minerals; and comes in a natural citrus flavor.


Coconut water

Naked Juice's 100% coconut water is all-natural and is produced with Brazilian green coconuts. It's not only a good source of potassium, but also contains electrolytes that make it great source for replenishment. Also, coconut water from one coconut contains more potassium than a banana!


Protein water

Special K20 is a flavored, powdered protein mix that gives 5 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber in each serving of water. Special K20 comes in two flavors: strawberry kiwi and pink lemonade. Just pour, stir and sip.


Aloe vera juice

Alo Exposed is Alo's original aloe drink that's made with real aloe vera extract and natural added ingredients. Aloe vera provides many benefits to the body internally, most importantly a healthy and regular digestive system. This drink contains honey and is full of vitamins, minerals and amino acids for a healthy refreshment on a hot day.


Green tea

Green tea has been around for centuries and is the least processed type of tea. Green tea provides high levels of the antioxidants polyphenol and catechins. These antioxidants can help block the oxidation of LDL (bad) cholesterol, increase HDL (good) cholesterol and improve artery function.
