This investment will fuel the growth of Nirvana's new functional spring waters and seltzers in traditional retail as well as support a new joint venture with Inspire Health Alliance, LLC, a pioneering health care service network with more than 1,500 physicians and surgeons across the U.S.

Naji Abumrad, M.D., F.A.C.S., professor of surgery at the Vanderbilt School of Medicine, and chairman of Nirvana's Scientific Advisory Board, is a world-renowned scientist and expert on systemic muscle inflammation and muscle wasting. Dr. Abumrad says, "When the body goes through trauma, like that experienced from surgery, it turns to the muscles to retrieve amino acids to rebuild. As a result, most patients experience muscle atrophy or sarcopenia at some level after surgery, which is one of the primary reasons why we started to study this issue in great depth over three decades ago. What we found was that supplementing with HMB can actually reverse muscle atrophy."
David Vanderveen, Nirvana's CEO, added, "We couldn't be more excited to partner with Inspire Health Alliance to help its physician network promote muscle wellness with our Nirvana Super™ Pro dietary supplement shots. This goes to the heart of what we do at Nirvana. We help people transform their bodies at a cellular level to live stronger, longer and more active lives."
