Global nutrition company, and soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo, announced the launch of Herbalife's premiere sports drink: "CR7 Drive".
As Ronaldo's official nutrition sponsor, CR7 Drive is the crowning jewel in the nutrition company's relationship with its famed athlete and reflects months of collaboration between them. Herbalife has been committed to the athlete both on and off the field as part of its multi-year agreement with Ronaldo, and CR7 Drive was designed to optimize his performance and address his specific nutritional needs.
"Cristiano Ronaldo takes nutrition very seriously and recognizes how a proper diet in combination with select nutrients can help bolster performance," said Michael Johnson, chairman and CEO, Herbalife. "We developed CR7 Drive specifically for and with Ronaldo, but his needs are not all that different from the everyday athlete or fitness enthusiast, and we are honored to make CR7 Drive available to athletes at all levels."
"Herbalife understands how critical nutrition is for my performance," said Cristiano Ronaldo, forward for Real Madrid C.F. "Working with dedicated Herbalife sports science staff to develop CR7 Drive has been incredibly rewarding and demonstrates what a true partnership should be like. I look forward to helping athletes around the world understand how nutritious products can help them perform."
CR7 Drive is a contemporary take on traditional sports drinks, without any artificial flavors or sweeteners. Light tasting and refreshing, it helps athletes refuel and rehydrate before and during exercise. It supplies carbohydrates for energy and replaces what is typically lost in sweat including key electrolytes. CR7 Drive is great for a range of activities including: soccer, spinning, running, or other sports that significantly increase heart rate.
Like all Herbalife24® products, CR7 Drive has been tested for all banned substances through the NSF Certified for Sport program and meets the stringent standards set forth by the dietary supplement Good Manufacturing Practices.
