We formulate and sell a powdered sports drink and associated products geared towards athletes and the general public under the Cardiostrong brand. Cardiostrong was created to address two main problems. The first is the lack of effective hydration beverages on the market that directly address cardiac function and sports performance. The second is the presence of high calorie, high sugar drinks that contribute to heart disease, diabetes and obesity world wide. Cardiostrong is safe and effective; it does not contain high sugar, high fructose corn syrup, caffeine, steroids or growth hormones. Cardiostrong directly addresses cardiac function; this is being objectively evaluated by an independent testing lab. It is specifically designed to improve physical performance, endurance and recovery.
