At Hydro One, we truly understand that there is a critical need to link solid science to action. Therefore, we have coupled the increasing consumer demand for healthful beverages with scientific discoveries of specific ingredients that can produce specific results which led to the development of functional beverages. These products move beyond conventional, fortified, or enriched items, or products marketed as healthy because they are low in sugar. Our products address specific major health issues such as diabetes, arthritis, aging, kidney disease and heart health through scientifically proven ingredients rather than chemically-derived pills.
