Elements Launches Functional Canned Drinks
NEW YORK— Elements, a new brand of adaptogenic canned drinks informed by science and formulated for real life, will release on September 4th, 2020. Each of the colorful 11.5-ounce cans contains clinically effective levels of adaptogens, super plants that work with your body to naturally regulate stress levels and help you find your balance. The refreshing, non-carbonated beverages are an easy addition to a healthy daily routine with only 20-25 calories and 4 grams of sugar per can. Elements will launch with four functional and tasty flavors to support you through the highs and lows of each day; Vitality, Focus Calm, and Sleep are formulated with powerful doses of adaptogens for benefits you’ll feel, really.
“Adaptogens are really starting to gain popularity as people realize how effective they are,” says Elements Founder & CEO Steven Izen. “But in powder or tablet form, it’s tough to incorporate them into your daily routine. Elements makes it convenient and delicious to drink adaptogens daily.” The vibrant, tea-like flavor of each formula complements its function and desired mental state; Vitality is a zesty Ginger Orange, Focus is a bright Blueberry Lemon, Calm is a cozy Vanilla Apple Cider, and Sleep is a soothing Cherry Vanilla Almond. With fewer calories than an iced tea and no added sugar or artificial sweeteners, Elements drinks are a healthy choice and are non-alcoholic, vegan, non-GMO, and gluten-free.
To ensure drinkers feel the desired effects, Izen enlisted an Ethnobotanist and a Doctor of Psychonutrition to identify powerful adaptogens that have scientifically proven benefits in humans. The adaptogens in the blends, including rhodiola, schisandra, holy basil, and ashwagandha, have been used for thousands of years in ancient Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. (Chin Med Journal, 2018) Modern science has confirmed their benefits through clinical research, showing adaptogens can improve cognitive performance and memory, enhance endurance, and boost energy, immunity, and resilience to stress. (Swedish Herbal Institute Research & Development, 2010). “You’ll feel the effect nearly immediately after drinking a can,” says Izen, “and the benefits of the adaptogens actually compound over time if you drink Elements consistently.” *
Izen has been using adaptogens for years and believes strongly in their ability to help the body resist stressors and restore balance. In creating Elements, Izen set out to deliver the next iteration of adaptogens in a functional beverage format. “We know balance is a journey, and sometimes, you need some help from science to find your center. Adaptogens are nature’s own ingredients for balancing stress but weren’t portable or palatable. I sought to develop a version that is easy to take on-the-go.”
