Article-Vitamin water drops into aluminum bottles

Live Young Forever Health and Wellness (LYF), Edmonton, AB, Canada, is rolling out Live Young Forever Citrus, a vitamin-enhanced water, in 16-oz Alumi-Tek® aluminum bottles from Ball Corp. (

According to LYF, the water is blended with vitamins, and the antioxidant, EGCG, which stimulates thermogenesis, a process critical to weight loss and fat burning. The beverage is 100-percent-natural, incorporating fruits and vegetable juice for color. Says Gwen Miles, CEO of LYF, “This bottle provides a perfect vessel for these products because it has a very distinct and premium image that is consistent with the benefits the beverage offers, and it's reclosable, tamper-evident, chills quickly and is 100-percent-recyclable.”

This is the first enhanced water product packaged in Ball's Alumi-Tek bottle, which is currently used for a wide variety of beverages including beer, energy drinks, coffee drinks and nutraceuticals. Ball uses its two-piece aluminum can-manufacturing expertise to produce the bottle because the manufacturing technology for both packages is so similar. Ball makes the bottles in eight-, 12- and 16-oz sizes at its aluminum beverage can plant in Monticello, IN.
