Alkame Water Partners With Top MMA Athletes and Trainers for Muscle Recovery Research Study

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Jun 12, 2014) -  Alkame Holdings, Inc. ( OTCBB : ALKM ) ( OTCQB : ALKM ), a health and technology holding company with a focus on patentable, innovative, and eco-friendly consumer products, is pleased to announce that it has initiated a Muscle Recovery Research Study utilizing its patented and proprietary micro-clustered, alkaline, antioxidant, and oxygenated bottled water. The comprehensive research study will be conducted in partnership with several leading professional Mixed Martial Arts companies and has been designed to provide further real world data and documentation of the sports performance and recovery benefits of drinking Alkame bottled water. 

"Previous scientific studies and overwhelming anecdotal evidence supports the conclusion that Alkame's patented technology creates water that can be absorbed more efficiently and significantly increases the total oxygen available to fuel the body during training, competition, and recovery. This leads to better overall performance with reduced muscle cramping and faster recovery times," stated Robert Eakle, CEO of Alkame Holdings, Inc. "It's a fact that MMA fighters push the limits of physical and mental endurance each and every day, so I can't think of a more extreme real world research environment to conduct the new muscle recovery tests of our Alkame ultra-hydration water. I look forward to adding to our knowledge base and helping these athletes to achieve their peak performance, inside and outside of the ring."

The Muscle Recovery Research Study has been developed and will be overseen by the Alkame Science and Technology Advisory Group, consisting of Tammy Schaible Miller, Dr. Pietro Baio, and Andrea Visak, with the assistance of MMA United Sports Entertainment Group and will include separate athlete groups from two elite level MMA training camps, The MMA Lab (Efrain Escudero, Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger, Lauren Murphy, Yaotzin Meza) in Glendale, Arizona, and The Daru Fitness & Performance Camp (Phil Daru) in Port St. Lucie, Florida. The research study is expected to include extensive monitoring of several key athletic performance and recovery factors, including lactic acid and urine pH levels, heart rate, body temperature, and blood pressure. Of particular interest to elite level MMA athletes will be the effectiveness of Alkame bottled water at providing rapid hydration during all critical stages of pre-fight preparation (training/weight cutting), competition, and post-fight recovery.

Jason Ellis, co-founder of MMA United Sports Entertainment Group, added, "We are very happy to be participating in this latest Alkame water research study and look forward to doing our part to further prove their water's benefit to elite level athletes and to potentially providing each of our MMA United Sports Entertainment managed fighters with a distinct hydration advantage every time they train and compete."

The Alkame Muscle Recovery Research Study is scheduled to begin the week of June 16, 2014, and is expected to take 4-6 weeks to complete, at which time the data will be compiled and evaluated prior to public disclosure.
