BOCA RATON, FL—Veteran actor and Black Belt Hall of Fame member Steven Seagal has more than a string of box-office hits under his seventh-degree black belt. The aikidoka's list of talents now includes energy-drink formulator.
Lightning Bolt Energy Drink, a product of Steven Seagal Enterprises, is the first of its kind to hit the nutritional-supplement market. "We offer the consumer a healthful alternative to what is currently available," said Mitch Gould, vice president of Steven Seagal Enterprises. "It's a natural gourmet energy drink made with 100-percent juice, packed with vitamins and exotic botanicals."
The supplement, which contains vitamins B3, B5, B6 and B12, is the product of Seagal's extensive travels in Asia in search of the substances that are believed to keep locals free of disease. The martial artist said that during his research, he discovered the benefits of Asian cordyceps, which are reputed to bolster the immune system. One of the most rare and treasured botanicals used in Chinese and Tibetan medicine for thousands of years, it promotes energy, vitality and longevity.
Other ingredients include the Tibetan goji berry, a powerful antioxidant. "I have included in this drink everything I could to strengthen the body," Seagal said. "There is none better that I know."
