FOSTER CITY, Calif., Sept. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — FRS® Healthy Energy is set to kick off the football season and continue its mission to provide healthy alternatives to America’s young adults during the seventh annual Kirk Herbstreit National Kickoff Classic, a series of nationally televised high school football games Labor Day weekend. FRS will sponsor the events with Healthy Energy® and Healthy Protein™ drinks on the field in Columbus at Ohio Stadium, home of the Buckeyes, aka “The Shoe,” airing on ESPN Networks September 4th and 5th and on September 5th at Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, airing on FSN.
“Each year, the Kirk Herbstreit Kickoff Classic shines a light on the top high school football talent around the nation,” noted Carl Sweat, President and CEO, The FRS Company. “FRS is committed to helping these athletes and their families pursue a healthy active lifestyle and we are excited by the positive response to our natural and sustained energy products. Whether we are supporting events like the Kickoff Classic, LIVESTRONG Challenge series, Junior Olympic Volleyball tournaments or mountain bike competitions, FRS offers a natural energy alternative without the crash, jitters or potential health concerns associated with most energy drinks or shots that rely on high levels of sugar or caffeine.”
Millions of Americans are discovering that FRS natural performance drinks and chews provide compelling advantages over typical energy and protein drinks. The difference lies in the patented FRS® formula featuring the powerful all natural antioxidant Quercetin, found naturally in fruits and vegetables, plus green tea catechins and seven essential vitamins that combine to deliver natural sustained energy. Amidst a sea of beverages filled with high levels of sugar and high fructose corn syrup linked to America’s obesity epidemic, FRS® remains committed to providing sustained, natural energy with low calorie and low sugar options.
“As a sports dietitian, I hear concerns frequently about energy drinks from coaches, parents, trainers and medical staff on the effects of high levels of caffeine, sugar crashes, and the unproven and unregulated ingredients which so easily get in the hands of teens and young adults,” said Rikki Keen, Sports Dietician. “FRS products offer a safer and healthier alternative using science backed ingredients to provide sustained energy and enhanced performance. FRS provides a line of all natural products with no artificial colors or flavors, no excess sugar, no mega-doses of vitamins and no over-hyped ingredients- it’s a smart choice on or off the field.”
