Tsamma Watermelon Juice Announces Continued Partnership with University of Alabama Athletics
01 01 1970
The University of Alabama football program sought out Tsamma Juice last year after learning of a study on the company's watermelon juice, which is being led by the University's Human Nutrition Department. The study focuses on the effects of L-citrulline, an amino acid most known for its use as a sports performance and cardiovascular health supplement. Watermelon is the only food that provides a natural source of L-Citrulline and each 12 oz. bottle of Tsamma Juice has 600 mg of this powerful nutrient.
"Providing a natural form of hydration is critical for student-athletes and teams during the heat," said Jim Carabin, Vice President and General Manager for Learfield's Crimson Tide Sports Marketing, multimedia rightsholder for the University of Alabama. "I like knowing the product was made by local Southeast farmers who keep a close eye on quality and consistency in flavor."
