Drink Spotlight: Livwell Products, LLC Launches drinkSMART™ Hangover And Liver Detox Supplement And Hi-Lyte™ Electrolyte Concentrate

 

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Livwell Products LLC, a natural nutritional supplements company founded by Natural Products Innovator and Chief Marketer Jeremy Adams -- formerly of POM Wonderful and GT's Kombucha -- announces the launch of two science-based wellness products to address the age-old issues of hangover recovery, liver detox and healthful rehydration for the Social Drinker.

The development of drinkSMART and Hi-Lyte goes back to the founder's experience in graduate school at Harvard University. He found that many friends and colleagues who followed otherwise healthy diet and fitness routines, also enjoyed alcoholic beverages socially. With over 40% of adults drinking an average of over 4 drinks per instance, he set out to find a better way to restore lost productivity from hangovers and to bolster long term liver and immune health.

Adams began researching the growing field of scientific data around hangover recovery and liver detox, eventually partnering with a Doctor and Research PHD to develop drinkSMART, the most comprehensive formulation available to address hangover recovery and liver detox.

Their combined research led them to a new formulation with truly breakthrough support mechanisms:

  • Amino Acids (such as N-Acetyl Cysteine), Prickly Pear, Ginger and other herbs to help metabolize acetaldehyde, a toxic alcohol byproduct*
  • Organic Milk Thistle, Organic Reishi Mushroom, Artichoke Leaf, Dihydromyricetin (DHM), Burdock Root and other herbs to support healthy liver function*
  • Antioxidant Superfoods such as Organic Curcumin, Acerola, Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA), Green Tea and Goji Extract to support healthy immune system and elimination of free radicals*
  • 16 essential vitamins and minerals including Vitamin C, B Complex and Magnesium*

"Our products are designed to support both hangover recovery and daily wellness for the Social Drinker," says Adams. "drinkSMART can be taken before bed as a 'Hangover Pill' after a night of drinking or daily as a multivitamin and supplement."

Their second product, Hi-Lyte, was developed specifically to address dehydration due to alcohol consumption. Hi-Lyte is a zero sugar and calorie electrolyte concentrate that can be added to any beverage and includes the perfect mix of electrolytes for rapid rehydration and hangover recovery.

drinkSMART and Hi-Lyte are being launched exclusively on Amazon.com for the 2016 Holidays. 30 servings (90 vegetarian capsules) of drinkSMART is featured on Amazon.com for $39.95 while 48 servings of Hi-Lyte is available for $18.95. Both are being launched with a 20% OFF introductory offer through New Year's Eve with the Coupon Code NYX20OFF.

Amazon fashion: can it become the next net-a-porter?

The web giant is intent on muscling in on the online fashion business. And many feel that, once the kinks are ironed out, success is inevitable

For those who want books, electronics and beauty products quick as a flash, Amazon is a no-brainer for most consumers. If the web giant has its way, high fashion will soon be on that list too. Having hired Cathy Beaudoin, who previously set up Gap's Piperlime retail site, it is now gunning to become the next net-a-porter.

Will it work? There is clearly some scepticism around how a brand known for discounted goods and, let's say, a lack of glamour, will translate to high fashion. Some have already dismissed the possibility of working with them. Louis Vuitton's chief executive, Yves Carcelle, said last week that the French house would "never" work with Amazon, while Alexander McQueen's Jonathan Ackroyd pointed to the "importance of brand identity online and maintaining it at the highest levels".

But the idea that working with a site like Amazon can damage your image isn't something that everyone agrees on. Brands are already represented on the site, including Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen's McQ line, Diesel and Paul & Joe. Some, including McQ, are sold through smaller dealers, though, rather than the brand directly, making the clothing part of Amazon's site more like eBay than a traditional fashion site. eBay is, says Isabel Cavill, senior retail analyst at Planet Retail, currently Amazon's "closest competitor. But both sites have the edge if a customer knows what they want and want a good price on it."

While Beaudoin has said that Amazon's fashion offerings won't be about discount goods – she is in talks with the likes of Gucci, Prada and Burberry, hardly brands interested in bargain basement retailing – experts say this will take time, and changes to the Amazon model.

To move themselves up a notch in the luxury world, it's not about perception. Online retail successes like net-a-porter.com, mywardrobe.com and asos.com work because they have specialised in fashion – and can be shopped in a way that works for clothes, with extra editorial content increasingly beefing up the browsing time we spend on them. "Fashion isn't a commodity like books," says Ian Wright, fashion director at Draper's magazine. "Clothes need to fit a body and evoke an emotional response."

A quick browse shows Amazon's clothing pages aren't immediately obvious. Once you find them, it's clear this is still a work in progress – the pages have the same design for a Wrangler biker jacket, say, as they do when you're purchasing Hilary Mantel's latest, and they feel crowded rather than exclusive. "They've tarted up the fashion landing page but every page needs to indicate it's serious about style," says Wright. "The experience will not feel anywhere near as special as the pricetag should guarantee." Even the wording could do with another look: "clothing" rather than "fashion" suggests a more practical approach that jars with the aspirational world of luxury.

It's also about learning new ways of working. Choice, something that Amazon is praised for in other categories, could be to their detriment here. With nearly three million items in the clothing section, it's not browser friendly. "We're in the age where the consumer actually wants more of an edit," says Cavill. "It's a question of them creating something inspiring."

Right now, we're in the first stages of Amazon's fashion takeover but, once the kinks are ironed out and snobbery is overcome, the power of the biggest retailer on the internet looks likely to prevail and success could be inevitable. "If they get a big brand, the rest will follow," says Kate Omerod, a retail analyst at Verdict Research. "The luxury sector has traditionally been quite slow but it can't be a blanket 'no' now. They have to seek out online retail. They're a leader online," adds Omerod. "Even if it's only partly successful, the rewards will be huge."

Amazon Unveils The Kindle PaperWhite. Where´s the white version?

Amazon's new Kindle Paperwhite line boasts an illuminated screen, sharper display and better touchscreen, while the most basic Kindle will now sell for $69 and gets a host of improvements as well.

The new Kindle hardware inarguably stole plenty of attention at today’s event. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezo’s waxed lovingly about the lineup as well as users’ love for it before introducing us to the Kindle Paperwhite, the latest addition to the Kindle family.

“We love to invent. We love to pioneer,” he said. “We even like going down alleys that turn out to be blind alleys.” Bezos also explained that while Amazon is a risk-taker, it’s also perfectly happy when it strikes gold – and that it certainly has with the Kindle

While this is a pretty big announcement due to the technical aspects and nice price tag I wonder about the design.  If Apple has taught us anything it´s that beautiful design matters.  I for one tend to buy on looks rather than tech specs.  Design wise there is nothing that comes close to the elegance of Apple products and some companies aren´t even trying.

I really like what Amazon is doing with the Kindle, I myself am an avid reader and purchased the first edition of the Kindle Fire.  I´m happy with the technical aspects of the product and since I travel quite a bit it´s a lot easier than lugging around actual books (although I do miss turning the pages).  However I would like a better aesthetic design.  Why not create a white Kindle with a bit more focus on design aspect.

The Kindles fire at this point is for avid readers, you are not going to find a 15 year old rocking one and the reason is simple, it´s not cool looking.  I´m not saying you have to focus solely on the design however if Apple is the blueprint then more companies need to follow their lead.

guayusa

Have You Ever Tried Guayusa?

You may have heard of mate (pronounced mah-tay, and not to be confused with all the 'mate we've had around), the herbal tea that's ubiquitous in South America. Herbal tea drinkers like it for its super-healthy (so the claims go) antioxidants and polyphenols, and when it's brewed right, it's a great herbal tea: rich and grassy with a nice natural sweetness.

The problem is that unless you brew it just right, yerba mate turns horribly, disgustingly bitter. And it's plenty easy to brew very wrong.

I tried, mate. I got the traditional brewing gourd. I sucked hot, poorly filtered tea through a scorching metal bombilla. I followed all the methodical, idiosyncratic brewing instructions. And I'm sorry, but you still tasted irreparably bitter. We're done. I have guayusa now.

Guayusa (pronounced gwhy-you-suh) is only starting to make inroads into the U.S., but it's hardly new. It's been drunk in the Amazon for thousands of years, and it's still essential to the daily traditions of many Ecuadorians today. It's a drink historically brewed in the early morning hours, around 4 AM, as a family starts their day—a sort of communal pick-me-up not unlike coffee here.

The flavor is similar to mate, but with a more plush, fruity flavor and a complete lack of bitterness. Tasting invites comparison to green tea, but the flavor is less tannic and the texture is more creamy (much more so than other herbal teas I've tried). Unlike green tea, drinking it on an empty stomach won't give you a stomach ache. And just as important, it's nearly impossible to overbrew, and leaves can be resteeped half a dozen times before their flavor starts to wane.
