New York, NY – (March 2011) – With the enormous number of beverages in today’s market, it’s hard to imagine a whole new category. The innovators at Prometheus Springs however may be on to something. The company’s three original capsaicin-spiced elixirs – Lemon Ginger, Pomegranate Black Pepper and Lychee Wasabi – were launched in 2009, and have been a hit with consumers and industry alike for their refreshing departure from the many overly sweet, ordinary offerings on shelves today. Prometheus Springs spicy elixirs contain a chili pepper extract with natural mood enhancing qualities, as well as numerous other health benefits. Now, the company has added three new flavors that were unveiled at Natural Products Expo West in March 2011: Mango Chili, Citrus Cayenne and Spicy Pear.
“Prometheus Springs fills a need that no other drink is addressing. Our products deliver the wonderful health benefits of capsaicin in a refreshing feel-good way,” says Rahul Panchal, President of the company. “It’s not just healthy, it’s a unique and invigorating sensory experience.”
These all-natural, non-alcoholic elixirs each contain a proprietary blend of delicious chili pepper extracts, layered with a mix of refreshing gourmet flavors. Prometheus Springs Capsaicin-Spiced Elixirs are USDA Certified Organic, Gluten-free, Vegan and Kosher, and contain no artificial colors or flavors or high fructose corn syrup.
Capsaicin is a spicy antioxidant known for its well-studied health benefits and is often called “the super spice.” According to medical experts, people may experience pleasurable and even euphoric effects from eating foods with capsaicin, attributed to the release of endorphins. Medical expert Dr. Nicholas Perricone claims that capsaicin can relieve headaches, arthritis, sinus infections, inflammation and certain gastric diseases.
