Popular anytime energy beverage mix now available with UC-II® Collagen for Joint Support
Optimum Nutrition (“ON”) introduces a new benefit in its growing portfolio of popular AMIN.O ENERGY products with the addition of ESSENTIAL AMIN.O. ENERGY PLUS UC-II® Collagen. Available in four flavors of easy-mix powder, ESSENTIAL AMIN.O. ENERGY PLUS UC-II® Collagen provides a combination of amino acids for muscle recovery, natural caffeine for energy and focus and collagen for joint support.
“People with active lifestyles don’t want anything getting in the way of their workout, but intense exercise and natural aging can stress and strain our joints,” said Sarah Teeter, director of marketing for ON. “ON’s latest innovation is the addition of a key ingredient for joint support to our delicious line of AMIN.O Energy beverage mixes.”
Each serving of the new product contains 40 grams of UC-II® Collagen, a type 2 collagen, helps maintain the integrity of cartilage, the rubber-like tissue that protects joints. One serving also contains 90 milligrams of Vitamin C to aid in collagen synthesis and antioxidant function. Like ON’s other AMIN.O. Energy products, the formula delivers five grams of essential amino acids and 100 milligrams of caffeine from natural sources.
“We found that many people currently take multiple supplements, including collagen capsules, to meet their needs for energy, focus, muscle recovery and joint support,” added Teeter. “With ESSENTIAL AMIN.O. ENERGY PLUS UC-II® Collagen, we deliver the benefits of three products in one refreshing, easy-to-mix, fruit flavored beverage for anytime use.”
ESSENTIAL AMIN.O. ENERGY PLUS UC-II® Collagen powder is available in four flavors including, Grape Remix, Fruit Fiesta, Mango Lemonade and Grapefruit.
