MINNEAPOLIS, May 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Getting fit for summer and the upcoming swimsuit season is a rite of spring. But finding extra energy to get fit without unhealthy additives has been challenging – until now.

Re-start, re-charge and re-fuel your fitness routine with Eruption Effervescent Energy™, a new, natural energy powder supplement which can be added to any beverage (ex. water, juice, iced tea), providing that vital energy boost that helps fitness-seekers get on track by sustaining longer exercise routines and workouts.

  • Very few carbs (2)
  • Very low calories (10)
  • More electrolytes than leading sports drinks
  • CoQ10 for heart and blood pressure
  • Potassium
  • Vitamins B2, B3, B6 and B12
  • Sweetened with natural Stevia (no Aspartame or Sucralose)
  • Gluten-free
  • High in antioxidant Vitamin C

“We developed Eruption to fill a void in the energy drink marketplace,” said Joshua Shirk, president/co-founder of Eruption. “It comes in a small packet and can be added to any beverage, so it’s convenient for on-the-go lifestyles.” To see how much energy Eruption gives you, watch the “Why Am I Flying?” video.

Eruption is natural, completely free of the chemicals and synthetic contaminates often found in today’s energy products. Eruption is shelf-stable and requires no refrigeration or chemical preservatives to hold its nutritional value. Eruption gives the perfect boost of energy when needed, with no jittery feelings, medicinal taste or drop-off effects common with other energy products. Available in two flavors: Lava Lime and Magmaberry, Eruption can also be purchased online at or follow Eruption on Facebook or Twitter.
