PacificHealth Laboratories, Inc., a leading sports nutrition company, announced today that GNC, the largest specialty retailer of nutritional products, has begun selling ACCELERADE(TM) HYDRO(TM) nationwide in approximately 1500 of its top performing stores.
ACCELERADE HYDRO delivers all the performance, rehydration and refueling benefits of ACCELERADE but with 30% fewer calories and 55% less sugar. Surveys have shown that weight management is a key concern for endurance athletes. ACCELERADE HYDRO is one of PacificHealth Laboratories' most popular low calorie products, which are now complemented by the recently launched ForzeGPS(TM) range of products, the first scientifically proven appetite management tool created specifically for athletes.
"ACCELERADE HYDRO has quickly become a favorite among athletes who understand that every pound counts when it comes to performance," said Jason Ash, President and CEO of PacificHealth Laboratories, Inc. said, "With ACCELERADE HYDRO, GNC customers now have a means to better control calories without sacrificing endurance from a proven brand they know and trust."
ACCELERADE HYDRO contains the patented 4:1 ratio consisting of four parts carbohydrate to one part protein. More than 17 studies have documented that the 4:1 ratio improves endurance, provides rapid rehydration and helps muscles recover faster with less soreness.
ACCELERADE HYDRO is available at a suggested retail price of $39.99 for 50 servings and comes in fruit punch and lemonade flavors.
