NBA Star Landry Shamet Joins ‘Team Tohi’ as an Athlete Ambassador
As NBA returns, Tohi’s whole-body benefit will impact players’ heart, brain, immune and bone health
KANSAS CITY, MO (July 30, 2020) – Tohi, the ready-to-drink wellness beverage made with antioxidant-rich Aronia Berries, announces professional basketball star Landry Shamet as a Tohi Athlete Ambassador.
Shamet, a shooting guard for the Los Angeles Clippers (NBA) has been drinking Tohi for two years and has always considered its unique benefits a vital part of his nutrition routine. Tohi’s whole-body benefit paired with its Midwestern roots – where Shamet was raised – made the partnership a natural fit.
Shamet, who is known as one of the NBA’s top up and coming young players, wants to elevate awareness of Tohi and Aronia Berries and make them a household name. Especially as Aronia is emerging as a trending ingredient and is being recognized in both trade and consumer press for its remarkable health benefits.
"I’m at the beginning of my career – but I already think about longevity. What you put in your body is important now – but will also pay off in the long run. I drink Tohi as part of an overall commitment to a healthy lifestyle.”
Tohi, a Kansas City-based healthy lifestyle brand, has a line of four Aronia Berry-based functional beverages. Aronia boasts a high micronutrient profile and total antioxidant measures that are four times that of blueberries and twice that of acai. Antioxidants are widely studied and are believed to improve heart, bone, immune and brain health by inhibiting the oxidation of free radicals in the body that can lead to inflammation and chronic disease.
Tohi beverages are clean label (only five ingredients), low in calories (45 calories per can), non-GMO and Kosher certified, vegan, allergen free and non-carbonated. Tohi is available in 4 flavors: The Original, Blackberry Raspberry, Dragon Fruit and Ginger Lime. Anyone can purchase Tohi beverages online or in more than 500 retail outlets including: Hy-Vee, Price Chopper, Rouses Markets, Reasor’s, Fareway, Tony’s Fresh Markets and Kum & Go.
