Healthy Powers, Activate!


Orange, Berry, Lemon Lime and Fruit Punch flavored waters with vitamins by Activate

A unique product, Activate, has hit the shelves, combining the popularity of bottled waters with an ingenuous method of creating a potent drink with healthy benefits. According to the company, vitamins and other healthy ingredients deteriorate sitting in water over time and, therefore, become less effective and useful to the body. In order to prevent this, Activate came up with a concept that is quite extraordinary, and their catchy slogan, "It's hid in the lid," demonstrates their unique idea.

The line of vitamin-enhanced flavored waters features a cap that releases a powdered supplement upon opening. A simple twist of the cap releases this fortified powder, and the consumer can simply give it a quick shake to mix the healthy components.

Activate comes in four varieties: Vitamin, which provides 100 percent of a handful of vitamins in a fruit punch flavor; Immunity, which combines vitamins with echinacea in an orange flavor; the berry-flavored Antioxidant, filled with healthy supplements that are difficult to pronounce; and finally, the lemon-lime Energy, which includes caffeine, creatine and assorted vitamins. Each bottle of Activate contains only five calories and zero sugar. If nothing else, this is a cool concept to keep you refreshed.

Price: $9 for a four-pack, $27 for a case of 12
