What are functional drinks

What’s all the fuss about function?

The UTONIC range falls within the category of “functional drinks”.

A fast-growing sector of the global beverage industry, the functional drinks market is being driven by consumers seeking specific health benefits from their foods and beverages.

But what exactly are functional drinks?

Whether it’s the hydration value of water or the vitamin C content of pomegranate juice, most drinks have an inherent functionality of some sort.

Functional drinks, however, are beverages with health benefits beyond their nutritional value, positively affecting one or more target functions in the body or mind to achieve an improved state of health and well-being.

Functional drinks often contain ingredients such as fruits and vegetables along with herbs, vitamins or minerals.

Some functional drinks contain synthetic nutrients or artificial additives such as stimulants, however the UTONIC range is 100% natural, scientifically formulated from concentrated real foods and targeted nutrients.

UTONIC Charge, UTONIC Calm and UTONIC Repair are blended from a range of functional ingredients to deliver specific benefits including naturally boosting energy levels, reducing stress and anxiety, and aiding in healing and repair.

So the answer’s simple: when you’re thirsty, have a drink of water. But when you want to transform the way you feel – reach for UTONIC.
