DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Mar 10, 2014) - Hangover Joe's Holding Corporation (OTCQB: HJOE). The maker of "The Hangover" Recovery Shot recently announced its huge new brand extension for the Company, Git-R-Done Energy (trademark registered) with Git-R-Done Productions, Inc. (Larry the Cable Guy), which is a healthy, all natural energy drink. In discussing the new product and beverage category, Matthew Veal, CEO for Hangover Joe's, stated, "We saw a need in the market for an all-natural, non-caffeinated health & wellness energy product that provides hours of long lasting energy without all of the caffeine and sugar. The energy drink market has come under fire in the last year or so for energy drinks having a high concentration of these substances. Git-R-Done Energy Drink is not your normal energy drink. We believe this is the perfect product for the market at this time."
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration does not allow soft drinks to have more than 0.02 percent caffeine, but energy drinks aren't subject to this limit which has caused a firestorm of concerns about the amount of caffeine that goes into energy drinks. Git-R-Done-Energy will be the first healthy energy shot on the market. "Considerable scientific research and development has gone into this product's development," said Shawn Adamson, Co-Founder of Hangover Joe's. "When we first approached Larry the Cable Guy about this product he made it clear that it was very important to him that we create a product that provides hours of long lasting energy that tasted great and yet was all natural, non-caffeinated and helped promote health & wellness to the consumer. I believe we have done just that. This is the first of its kind, a healthy energy shot that is totally revolutionary in design and function."
Mike Jaynes Co-Founder and Chairman of the Board for Hangover Joe's Holding Corporation, added, "Git-R-Done Energy is different from any other energy drink on the market. This product has over 20 key ingredients that provide the body long lasting energy and helps to fight against fatigue and aids the body's cell building abilities, it also helps to fight against disease and oxidation stress. Our energy shot packs a punch, with a symphony of ingredients, designed to promote health function, build energy and enhance performance, plus it is loaded with antioxidants and is all natural, and non-caffeinated."
Git-R-Done Energy is the first energy drink of its type on the market to be powered with Astaxanthin in combination with D-Ribose, which acts in the body like a natural sugar. Astaxanthin, the world's most powerful antioxidant, helps increase energy by protecting mitochondria, in which food is turned into energy. Astaxanthin is 550 times stronger than Vitamin E, and 6,000 times stronger than Vitamin C. Astaxanthin is a red pigment that occurs naturally in various marine animals, including shrimp, salmon, crabs and lobster. This antioxidant gives salmon the endurance needed to swim upstream. It helps to increase strength, stamina and endurance by removing free radicals from muscle tissue, lessening soreness and helping the body rebound from the stress of exercise and labor.
Ribose is used to improve performance and the ability to exercise by boosting muscle energy. Ribose has also has been used to improve symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome because it creates energy in the body. Overall this is a super energy shot. The product is Berry Blast (registered trademark) in flavor and uses the natural sweetener Stevia, which has gained national attention as an all-natural alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners. Having used only the best all-natural ingredients, we are proud to have created a great tasting energy drink that is both effective and healthy for consumers.
