IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - January 24, 2013) - True Drinks, Inc. (OTCQB: BAZID), a healthy beverage provider with major entertainment and media company licensing agreements for use of their characters on its proprietary, patented bottles, today announced the Company's new zero calorie, sugar-free formula for its AquaBall™ Naturally Flavored Water.
True Drinks, Inc. has arguably created the healthiest beverage for children on the market today. AquaBall Naturally Favored Water enhanced with vitamins B3, B5, B6, B12 and C contains no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial flavors, and no artificial colors. Furthermore, unlike the high sugar and high calorie juice and soda products targeted toward children, AquaBall Naturally Flavored Water now contains zero sugar and zero calories.
According to the Center for Disease Control, childhood obesity has more than tripled in the last 30 years, and "in 2008 more than one third of children and adolescents [were] overweight or obese." Statistics from New York-Presbyterian Hospital (nyp.org) indicate "close to 20 percent of preschoolers (children ages 4 and 5) have tooth decay, with 50 percent developing tooth decay by the third grade, and 86 percent by age 17." Excessive consumption of sugar clearly contributes to diminished childhood well being.
True Drinks, Inc. is committed to children's health and wellness. As such, True Drinks, Inc. is proud to equip parents with a healthy alternative to the high caloric, high sugar beverages widely available today. Additionally, children will be drawn to AquaBall Naturally Flavored Water by the easily recognizable characters from well-loved movie and television programs featured on its unique packaging.
Lance Leonard, True Drinks Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We have specifically designed AquaBall Naturally Flavored Water to fill a much needed open area within the beverage category. Today, parents have few drink choices to offer their family that are not loaded with empty calories and artificial ingredients. The current pandemic of childhood obesity and juvenile diabetes has created a demand for healthier beverages, and AquaBall Naturally Flavored Water is one of the healthiest drinks available today."
Dr. Nina M. Gray, DMD, CEO and Founder of Dental Plus California, commented, "As a doctor and mother of two young children, I am passionate about promoting the development of the health and wellness of my young patients. Every day I see the many negative effects that high fructose and sugary juices and drinks have on children and adolescents. These beverages strongly contribute to severe health issues such as tooth decay, obesity and diabetes. I am proud to recommend AquaBall as part of a healthy diet for my children and adolescent patients. In my professional opinion, AquaBall offers the perfect blend of hydration and essential nutrients not found in any other children's drink on the market."
AquaBall Naturally Flavored Water is currently being distributed at select retailers across the country, including all stores under the Safeway banner. Find a retailer carrying AquaBall near you at www.theaquaball.com.
