How Liquid I.V. uses Cellular Transport Technology to Hydrate More Efficiently

April 14, 2018

BrandinCohen_April18.jpg

 

Brandin Cohen, Founder of Liquid I.V., the Non-GMO electrolyte drink mix that is based on Oral Rehydration Therapy joins eHealth Radio and the Health News Channel.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Brandin Cohen discuss the following:

  1. How does it work?
  2. Explain the technology behind it.
  3. How do I know if I'm dehydrated?
  4. Does drinking liquid IV help anything else in my body besides dehydration?
  5. What does Liquid IV do better for the body rather than drinking water?

 

Brandin Cohen is the CEO and Co-founder of Liquid I.V. Brandin Cohen grew up in Manhattan Beach, California, where he aspired to become a professional golf player, eventually playing the sport on scholarship at Loyola Marymount University. When Brandin hurt his shoulder in college, he had no idea the injury would close one door and open another: a career as an innovative entrepreneur with a philanthropic mission.  

After graduating Loyola Marymount University as Entrepreneur of the Year for a project he did in Haiti, Brandin accepted a sales & marketing position with the Arizona Diamondbacks of Major League Baseball. He quickly noticed the players were opting for ineffective sports drinks to fight dehydration. As a former athlete himself, Brandin knew just how full of artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, and preservatives these drinks contain. He set out to find a cleaner, more efficient alternative along with his friend and Liquid I.V. co-founder, Hayden Fulstone.

In 2012, the duo came across an untapped hydration science, Oral Rehydration Therapy, developed in the 1970’s by the World Health Organization and deemed to be one of the best medical advancements of the 20th century. This hydration breakthrough was created to aid children in developing countries suffering from extreme dehydration caused by deadly diseases such as cholera. Brandin searched for any beverage utilizing this technology and but were left empty handed. They decided to bring this untapped science to market and create Liquid I.V. The company officially launched in December 2012.

Aside from creating a great hydration product, Brandin also has a passion for giving back. In 2015, Liquid I.V. began sending hydration aid to some of the poorest regions of Haiti. The brand has since joined forces with multiple nonprofit organizations to fight dehydration together in other undeveloped nations like Uganda and South Sudan. Since the company’s inception, they have donated 34% of all manufactured Liquid I.V. product to fight dehydration both in developing countries and here in the United States.

Brandin was recently nominated as a finalist for Forbes’ 30 Under 30 Social Entrepreneur List. He currently resides in Playa Vista, California, and when he is not on the road meeting with retailers, he loves to travel the world and meet new people of varying cultures on his mission to eradicate global dehydration.

Safe Catch where their tuna is traceable from catch to can

November 2, 2017
00:0000:00

 

mij-l-tank-1103-01.jpg

 

Bryan Boches, the Co-Founder of Safe Catch where their tuna is traceable from catch to can and we only buy from captains whose fish come from managed and sustainable tuna stocks joins eHealth Radio and the Health News and Supplement Channels.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Bryan Boches discuss the following:

  • How did you come up with the idea of Safe Catch? Tell us a little more about it? 
  • Is it true Safe Catch - Elite Wild Tuna has the lowest Mercury of any tuna brand? Please explain. 
  • Is Safe Catch ok to eat several times a week unlike traditional tuna? 
  • Is it safe for pregnant women as well?
  • Tell us about the additional products in the Safe Catch line? 

 

About Safe Catch: Our tuna is traceable from catch to can and we only buy from captains whose fish come from managed and sustainable tuna stocks. Read more about our sustainability policy. Then, we test each tuna.Using our proprietary technology, we are able to test every single fish for its mercury content. If it doesn’t meet our purity standards we don’t buy it.  It still may be a good tuna, but it’s not a Safe Catch tuna.

  • Our limit for Safe Catch Elite Wild Tuna is ten times (10x) stricter than the FDA mercury action limit.
  • Our limit for Safe Catch Wild Albacore Tuna is three times (3x) stricter than the FDA mercury action limit.

 

About the Co-Founders Bryan Wittenberg & Bryan Boches: As childhood friends growing up next door to each other, we never thought we would be working together and fighting for purity in our seafood and oceans. It all began when Sean’s mom read an article about mercury variance in tuna and said, “Moms shouldn’t have to worry about giving tuna sandwiches to their kids. Sean, why don’t you solve this?”

After some research, we learned that two identical tuna, same species, size and school could vary in mercury levels by over 10 times. The only way to know the mercury level was to test every fish.

Existing technology cost $100 per mercury test which would make a can of tuna cost about 50 bucks. So, we formed a team of talented software and hardware engineers and invented a new technology to rapidly test every fish for purity.

We went to major seafood brands and offered to test for them but they all declined. One executive told us that consumers wouldn’t understand or care about better purity. So, we did what any entrepreneur with zero experience in food would do. We started a new brand of tuna and named it Safe Catch.

We knew how to identify amazing tuna but we didn’t how to make amazing tuna. We were surprised to learn that conventional tuna is precooked, rehydrated with fillers, machined processed and recooked and as result of so much processing it loses many vital Omega 3 oils, flavor and texture.

So, we searched for a better way to make and cook tuna. We found and adapted an old artisan method. At Safe Catch, we hand cut and hand pack each wild tuna steak into a BPA free lined can with no additives or fillers. Then, we slow cook it just once. It took us 75 different variations to get our formula perfect.

We’re so happy with the purity, quality, and taste. All of the vital Omega 3 oils and flavor are retained in Safe Catch tuna and there is no draining after opening. Open the can into a bowl, chop up the steak with a fork and let it reabsorb its natural oils. It’s moist and delicious pure wild tuna as nature intended.

We hope you love it!

– Sean & Bryan
