Amway Launches NUTRILITE Product Ambassador Program with Pro Athletes Endorsing
Amway North America recently introduced its NUTRILITE Product Ambassador program with a growing list of professional and champion amateur athletes who endorse Amway's NUTRILITE brand. To date, the roster includes three teams and 20 athletes, who compete nationally in a variety of sports, including Kirk Cousins, Justin Abdelkader, C.J. Watson, Ike Davis, Tyler Zeller and Omar Vizquel.
"We're proud that elite athletes and athletic organizations have made the choice to endorse the NUTRILITE brand, knowing that they can rely on dietary supplements that meet stringent, independent certification standards," said Cindy Seehase, Chief Marketing Officer of Amway North America.
Six of the NUTRILITE brand's foundational products qualify for NSF's Certified for Sport program, which helps athletes, coaches and trainers make more informed decisions when choosing sports supplements. As part of the program, Amway provides the athletes with core Nutrilite products that are NSF Certified for Sport.
"As a professional athlete I'm constantly striving to achieve optimal health, which isn't easy for me being on the move and in a different city every few days. When I was looking at nutritional supplements to take, NUTRILITE products seemed like the perfect fit. The supplements I take are NSF-certified and the brand has been around for more than 75 years," said New York Mets first baseman Ike Davis.
The Ambassadors receive a variety of NUTRILITE products, including NUTRILITE Perfect Pack, NUTRILITE DOUBLE X Vitamin/Mineral/Phytonutrient, NUTRILITE Daily Multivitamin, NUTRILITE Concentrated Fruits & Vegetables, NUTRILITE OCEAN ESSENTIALS Balanced Health and NUTRILITE Valerian and Hops, all of which are NSF Certified for Sport.
