Body Glove Launches All-Natural Energy Shot

MATAWAN, N.J. — PacificHealth Laboratories, Inc. (OTCQB: PHLI.OB), a leading sports nutrition company, in conjunction with Body Glove International, one of the foremost global brands in outdoor activity announced the launch of Body Glove SURGE, the first proven all-natural energy shot that delivers fast and long-lasting energy, increases mental focus and improves alertness without the chemicals found in best-selling energy shots.

Caffeinated energy shots are one of the fastest growing retail categories with 2012 sales exceeding $1.4 billion.  Although 164 million adults are daily consumers of caffeinated products, only 8% of adults regularly purchase energy shots. The overwhelming majority of consumers are reluctant to use energy shots because of their chemical composition, which they feel is unhealthy and skepticism regarding their effectiveness.  Even 47% of energy shot users report their consumption would increase if there was a natural alternative. Proven all-natural Body Glove SURGE is a game changer because it will significantly expand the energy shot category.

Combining protein, honey, green tea, coconut water, pomegranate and other high-antioxidant fruits, all natural Body Glove SURGE has been studied by researchers at Montana State University. The study, which will be presented at the American College of Sports Medicine’s annual meeting, showed Body Glove SURGE was more effective than 5-hour EnergyÒ in speeding reaction times, extending endurance, improving alertness and raising mental focus.

The developer of Body Glove SURGE, world-renowned sports scientist, Dr. Robert Portman, said, “Body Glove SURGE’s ingredients acts synergistically to raise energy levels and improve mental focus even though it contains 35% less caffeine than the leading selling shot. Body Glove SURGE gives you fast and long-lasting energy whenever you need it plus the additional immune, antioxidant and electrolyte replenishment benefits of green tea, protein, coconut water and pomegranate.”

The CEO of PacificHealth Laboratories, Fred Duffner said, “We are very excited about the launch of this innovative product.  Body Glove SURGE provides retailers the opportunity to expand this category and pick up lost sales from the 92% of consumers who are not currently using energy shots.  With Body Glove SURGE, busy health conscious consumers have a safe, all-natural proven energy product to help them perform at their best whether they are exercising, working or playing.”

Launching nationwide in July, Body Glove SURGE will be sold in 12 bottle display cartons in Grape and Tropical Berry flavors and retail for $2.99 per shot. The launch plan will include national advertising in lifestyle magazines and aggressive social media campaigns to drive consumers to retailers. Part of the national marketing campaign will feature world-class professional athletes including: Garrett McNamara, big wave surfing legend and the Guinness World Record Holder for largest wave ever ridden; Leanda Cave, Ironman 70.3 and World Champion; Dave Scott, 6x Ironman World Champion; and Aaron Ross, professional BMX rider known for his ability to both race and compete in freestyle competitions.
