Mike Moegelin, the Boston Sales Rep for LIV, commented, “Our success in Boston is due to a very athletic population of all ages as well as an educated consumer willing to read his/her labels and try new products. Once they experience LIV, they stay with our drink.”
LIV has been quite successful moving into several regional and national retailers during its first year including Whole Foods Markets and Dean & DeLuca.
Ritorna Natural, Inc., the makers of LIV Natural, believes that a sports drink does not have to sacrifice taste to be healthy and effective. LIV contains no high-fructose corn syrup as it is made instead with agave nectar, a natural, unprocessed source of sugar. LIV Natural contains only all natural ingredients – it has no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. The use of rice syrup provides a healthy source of carbohydrates. As a result of LIV Natural’s unique balance of beneficial sugars, carbohydrates and minerals, it promotes physical recovery both during and after exercise.
