Uncle Matt's Organic, the nation's top-selling brand of organic orange juice, launched Uncle Matt's Organic Ultimate Athlete Pre-Workout Shot, aimed to boost athletic performance, hydrate and reduce oxidative stress—all in one gulp.

The 2-ounce shot was formulated in collaboration with the Denver Broncos' in-house chef and is a proprietary blend of organic beets, orange juice, coconut water, ginger, and lemon juice designed to support peak performance. The shots are now available online and will be rolling out to select retailers nationwide in the next few months.

Uncle Matt's Organic Ultimate Athlete Shot starts with the highest quality OJ, using only 100% organically grown fruit that is free from synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, and GMOs. The juice is blended with powerfully proven multi-functional ingredients like:

  • Organic Beet Juice & Powder: This ingredient can't be "beet" for a boost in athletic performance as well as reduced muscle soreness.
  • Organic Coconut Water: Coconut water is a naturally sweet source of hydration without any added sugar. It contains electrolytes like potassium and sodium that help your body maintain fluids and sustain performance.
  • Organic Ginger Juice: Scientific studies say strenuous physical activity can lead to increased oxidative stress and inflammation. Ginger contains antioxidant compounds like gingerols that have anti-inflammatory properties to combat that.
  • Organic Lemon Juice: Lemons, an abundant source of Vitamin C, have been studied for their potential impacts on lowering stroke risks and preventing asthma.

"We wanted to create a great-tasting pre-workout shot that would support sports and fitness goals without chemicals or caffeine -- Uncle Matt's Organic Ultimate Athlete Shot is delicious and organic, but just as effective as the mainstream shots out there," said Susan McLean, VP of marketing and innovation at Uncle Matt's Organic. "This innovation is a great addition to our Ultimate Shots line and is the perfect option for the pro athlete to the weekend warrior and everyone in between looking to help boost athletic performance with organic and multi-functional ingredients," she continued.

SRP for one 2-ounce shot is $3.49 - $3.99. With the addition of the Ultimate Athlete Shot, there is a functional Uncle Matt's Organic offering for everyone in the family, including Uncle Matt's Organic Superfruit Punch, Ultimate Immune Organic Orange Juice, Ultimate Defense Orange Juice with Turmeric and Probiotics, Ultimate Wellness Juice Shots. All of Uncle Matt's Organic products are certified Glyphosate Residue Free by the Detox Project.
