Adina For Life Unveils Two New Varieties of Holistics At 2010 Natural Products EXPO West

San Francisco, CA (March 12, 2010) – San Francisco-based Adina for Life, Inc., creators of Adina beverages, today announced it will exhibit at the 2010 Natural Products EXPO West, at the Anaheim Convention Center, in Anaheim, CA. At EXPO West, Adina will unveil two new flavors in its line of 100% USDA Organic, Fair Trade, fruit-infused herbal beverages, “Adina Holistics™”-Jade Green Tea with Tulsi, and Coconut Guava with Lychee.

Joining the Adina team at Expo West are brand ambassadors and contestants from NBC’s “The Biggest Loser”, Filipe Fa and Sione Fa. The Fas will be on hand to discuss how they lost a combined 360 lbs, and how they have kept that weight off through a highly disciplined program of exercise and healthy eating and drinking habits-including the elimination of beverages containing High-Fructose Corn Syrup.

Adina’s management team also received a major upgrade this month with the addition of new President and Chief Operating Officer, Norman Snyder. Snyder, who was most recently President and Chief Executive Officer of High Falls Brewing Company, in Rochester New York, has over 15 years of seniorlevel management experience in the beverage industry. He also served as COO at Rheingold Brewing Company and SoBe Beverage, where he worked closely with Adina For Life CEO and beverage industry icon, John Bello.

In May of 2009, Adina For Life introduced Adina Holistics™ Herbal Elixirs in California and Northeast test-markets. By year-end, it was clear Adina had succeeded in creating a winner; defining an entirely new beverage category supported by a motivated and capable DSD network. “Holistics actually outperformed SoBe in its first year in business,” said John Bello, Adina’s acting CEO and founder of SoBe Beverage. “Holistics is on trend with what consumers and retail buyers want, while providing independent distributors with a brand that can compete in a market in need of some excitement.”

Adina Holistics™ uses adaptogenic herbal extracts known to exert a normalizing influence on the body with flavors that include: Pomegranate Acai with Yumberry, Cranberry Grapefruit with Goji, Mango Orange with Chamomile, Blackberry Hibiscus with Rooibos, Passion Peach with Amalaki. New flavors, which will launch in March 2010, include Coconut Guava with Lychee and Jade Green Tea with Tulsi.

With market earnings gained during the first eight months since Adina Holistics™ was introduced, the Adina management team made several swift modifications and enhancements to the formulas and packaging to further improve performance in 2010. Those changes included flavor and packaging improvements to give Adina Holistics™ an even more competitive taste profile, stronger shelf presence, and differentiation within the six-variety fruit-infused herbal elixir lineup. “I’m confident in all the improvements and believe we have all the pieces in place to get the monkey howling in 2010,” says Bello.
