Howard University alum Ayokunle Amoo launches AMO, a new generation sports drink. AMO is an all-natural zero-sugar sports drink powered by the superfood cacao. The sports drink was tested by food scientists, pre-approved at several retail locations, and received interest from numerous professional athletes and Pro-Am sports leagues. AMO is packed with essential vitamins, electrolytes, and antioxidants. Athletes can consume the superfood sports beverage before, after, and during their workouts.
Antioxidants – polyphenol antioxidants called flavanols that come from cacao. These antioxidants lower blood pressure, improve blood flow and fight cell damage.
Electrolytes – sodium, potassium, and magnesium to support nerve and muscle functions, regulate fluid balance, and hydrate the body during rigorous sports.
Vitamins – B12 and D3 support energy, physical performance, and functionality.
While Amoo worked in sports and training youth, he realized a problem in the sports drinks industry – most sports drinks were high in sugar, lacked nutritional value, and used artificial ingredients. Unfortunately, daily consumption of these drinks could lead to poor athletic performance, weight gain, and overall long-term health issues. Therefore, Amoo wanted to address those concerns for athletes of all ages. Amoo credits one of his dreams for the idea. In August, Amoo launched his crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to bring AMO to market.
Benefits of Cacao in AMO
Most people don’t think about sports drinks when they hear the word cacao. It is used in AMO for antioxidant support. However, the sugar-free drink doesn’t taste like a chocolate drink. Most people wouldn’t even know it contains cacao. It tastes natural fruit flavors and possesses the exact texture of an ordinary sports drink.
Cacao also contains magnesium, iron, calcium, potassium, and phosphorous. Cacao helps with the following:
- Heart Production
- Improved digestive system
- Lower risk of diabetes
- Improved cognitive function
