Vuka LLC announces the launch of a new line of occasion-based energy drinks


DENVER, August 12, 2009 -Vuka LLC today announced the launch of a new line of four sparkling and juice-based energy drinks – Awaken, Think, Workout, and Renew. Unlike many one-syrup-fits-all energy drinks, Vuka’s all-natural ingredients and nutritional supplements are specifically formulated to provide intelligent energy for the activities that fill your life.

“Even though our target market drinks energy drinks, coffee, and other caffeinated beverages, they are more health conscious and want something that is better for them. They want the caffeine, but also seek other functional ingredients to simply help them get through their daily activities,” said Alexia Bregman, Vuka CEO – Marketing .

Vuka offers a range of energy drinks catering to different occasions. They are not intended to keep you awake for an all-night rave or as fuel for an extreme sport, but simply to help you aim higher and accomplish more in whatever you do. Vuka is made with all-natural ingredients and natural caffeine, no preservatives and no high-fructose corn syrup.

• Awaken is 50% real juice to keep the fresh, familiar taste of orange juice in your wake-up routine. Plus, it’s enhanced with Vitamins A, C, E and B3, B5, B6, and B12.
