Zevia Beats Beverage Majors to National Distribution of First Stevia Diet Soda Alternative

Zevia LLC (http://www.zevia.com)] announced today that its carbonated Zevia® product containing the natural herb stevia has reached nationwide distribution. With four flavors in stores now, Zevia beat the major beverage brands to grocery store shelves across the nation, offering the first all-natural zero-calorie alternative to artificially sweetened diet sodas.

Citing the Coca-Cola Company’s partnership with food giant Cargill to develop Truvia, a stevia derived sweetener intended for use in beverages and food, the mainstream beverage industry has awakened to consumer anxiety about artificial sweeteners targeting stevia as the answer. But as Truvia announcements ring out hailing the sweetener’s eventual release, Zevia is ahead of the game with a finished product readily available nationwide offering consumers what they have been craving in the way of a thirst quenching, carbonated product utilizing the well known benefits of pure stevia.

“Because Zevia is the first and only zero-calorie brand that can claim to be truly all-natural, the company has been able to rapidly expand onto the shelves of high profile retailers,” says Jeff Taylor, Zevia’s national sales manager. “Fortunately for us, attaining shelf space hasn’t been an issue as much as getting Zevia there fast enough to meet demand.”

Some of the current retailers include Los Angeles’ Bristol Farms, Washington state’s QFC (a Kroger division), PCC and Metropolitan Markets, San Francisco’s Mollie Stone’s Markets and Dallas’s Central Markets to name a few. Retail doors carrying Zevia will increase to well over 1500 in June when committed retailer accounts come online, especially on the East Coast.

About Zevia

Zevia is an all-natural zero-calorie alternative to diet sodas available in four flavors (Natural Cola, Natural Lemon-Lime Twist, Natural Orange, and new Natural Ginger Root Beer) and packaged in 100% recycled aluminum cans. Zevia is sold in health food and specialty grocery stores nationwide with new stores added daily.

Zevia contains stevia, an herb native to South America rain forests that is many times sweeter than sugar. For centuries, tribes there used stevia as a sweetener in native foods and medicinal teas. Now poised to have an important impact on the U.S. food industry, stevia is widely accepted as an alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners and readily available in health food and major grocery stores.

Think-Outside-the-Book Publishing Launches New Portal Website that Reveals Startling Discoveries in Alternative Health and Wellness

Think-Outside-the-Book Publishing Launches New Portal Website that Reveals Startling Discoveries in Alternative Health and Wellness

“Top 5 Underground Health Secrets You Never Knew Before”

Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) August 12, 2011

Mark Cranston is a 55-year-old man who spends more money on alternative medicine — such as fish oil, glucosamine and echinacea — than he spends out-of-pocket for prescription drugs. He’s not alone. Think-Outside-the-Book-Publishing researched and found consumer spending on alternative therapies has swelled to $ 460 billion, growing tenfold in the last 10 years. Additionally, there are presently 420 million visits to alternative health practitioners per year compared to 350 million visits to medical doctors.

The burgeoning demand for alternative medicine has spawned an industry of companies, entrepreneurs, alternative health providers and vendors selling a dizzying array of nutritional supplements, herbs and therapies to an insatiable public. Some of these products and therapies are scientifically proven to be efficacious, and others are questionable, at best.

To help consumers make informed decisions about their options in the world of alternative medicine, where conflicting information and marketing factoids and half-truths abound, Think-Outside-the-Book Publishing has recently launched the UndergroundHealthReporter.com portal website.

UndergroundHealthReporter.com emerged as a natural extension of the popular Underground Health Reporter weekly e-newsletter, which has 250,000 loyal subscribers from all over the world. The new portal website is designed to be a daily destination for discovering little-known, cutting-edge — sometimes unconventional and always startling — information in the field of health and wellness.

“Every alternative therapy and health breakthrough presented in the pages of this site has been thoroughly researched and verified for its effectiveness before it was allowed to be featured here,” says Danica Collins, editor of both the weekly e-newsletter and the portal website. “Because we’re publishers of health and wellness publications, and not vendors of alternative health supplements, we’re able to present unbiased information that enables readers to make better choices when it comes to their health.”

UndergroundHealthReporter.com is also a health community where users can share ideas, opinions, personal experiences, and health resources relating to alternative health.

To commemorate the official launch of the health and wellness portal, Think-Outside-the-Book Publishing is offering visitors a free sampler consisting of 5 of the most sought-after reports from its treasury of little-known health discoveries. The 5 reports, compiled into a downloadable e-book, provide a taste of the startling revelations that the portal website dishes out every day.

The free e-book, titled “Top 5 Underground Health Secrets You Never Knew Before” includes the following reports: How to Make a Cancer Tumor Dissolve in 40 Seconds … Why Drinking the Juice of this Young Grass May Turn Gray Hair Back to Its Natural Color … A Mushroom That Cures Cancer and AIDS … How to Make Your Cells Grow Younger … and Rub Your Stomach Away in 2 Minutes a Day. The URL of the portal website is http://www.UndergroundHealthReporter.com.
