ViB (Vacation in a Bottle) Kicks Off Summer With New Tropical Mango Lime Flavor to Line Up Next to ViB’s Pomegranate-Berry

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) June 29, 2009 — ViB (Vacation in a Bottle) has gone tropical with their newest flavor, Mango-Lime. The debut of Mango Lime follows the wild success of ViB’s Pomegranate Berry flavor which launched nationwide last spring.

ViB is the starlet of relaxation beverages with fans that include celebrities Jessica Simpson, and professional athletes Amar’e Stoudemire, Mike Modano and Jason Witten.

ViB Co-founder, Travis Hollman says, “ViB is perfect for anyone who wants to relax and unwind while maintaining focus and concentration. And, our Mango-Lime flavor captures the cool vibe of the tropics in our sleek bottle design.”

ViB’s key ingredient is L-Theanine. It is the same amino acid found in green tea leaves, widely recognized for its calming properties. ViB’s formulation also contains L-Threonine, B-vitamins and Lycii berry extract.

Relaxation drinks represent a rapidly growing share of the functional beverage market. Hollman’s business partner and co-founder Johnny Dela Valdene says demand is growing because “a significant percentage of the population simply doesn’t tolerate caffeine. And others want to be able to concentrate and focus, but without the crash associated with energy drinks.”

“ViB is a great alternative for consumers who demand a better beverage. ViB is caffeine-free, lightly carbonated and contains 60 calories per 12 oz bottle,” Valdene adds.

About Functional and Relaxation Beverages

Functional beverages are the fastest growing segment of the beverage industry, expected to grow an additional 30-percent over the next two years. These beverages are enhanced with natural ingredients that provide specific benefits beyond general nutrition. ViB kicked off the relaxation drink category, and it is growing exponentially in response to the public’s backlash and rising concern over energy drinks. ViB helps relieve anxiety and stress, and deliver an all around ‘relaxed’ and happy feeling, without any drowsiness or lethargy.
