AQUAhydrate® Expands Distribution Into GNC Stores Across The U.S. This November

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In the wake of a summer rebranding campaign aimed at active, health-conscious Everyday Warriors, AQUAhydrate ® has gained national distribution at health and wellness retail giant GNC.  Already available in outlets such as Whole Foods, Vitamin World, Sprouts, Albertsons, and convenience channel outlets nationwide, AQUAhydrate continues to expand its retail footprint.  The enhanced water offers consumers Supercharged Hydration , a combination of key electrolytes and alkalinity that helps restore balance to the body so people can perform at the top of their game, in every aspect of their lives.

To be sold at approximately 3,000 GNC stores across the United States and online at, AQUAhydrate will be initially available in 700 mL sport-top and 1 liter bottles.

"GNC and AQUAhydrate are the perfect match.  We already know the vast majority of our consumers are regular shoppers of GNC, and we are very pleased to be able to offer AQUAhydrate nationwide in all GNC corporate stores," stated John Cochran, CEO of AQUAhydrate.

"Proper hydration is often a forgotten key element for a healthy and athletic lifestyle, and AQUAhydrate offers a refreshing and effective solution.  We recognize the rising appeal of AQUAhydrate as a leading performance water and are pleased to offer it to GNC customers," Tom Dowd, who serves as Chief Merchandising Officer, Executive Vice President and General Manager of GNC Corp., GNC Holdings Inc. and General Nutrition Centers, Inc.
