I like to have a good time, but I've also always been a healthy guy. I eat well and work out regularly, but I’ve had a few too many a few too many times. I'm a healthy drinker. An oxymoron, right? I don't think so anymore.
When I was in college, I wanted to find a way to balance out all the alcohol I was drinking. I did some research on what I could do to counteract the effects of drinking. I learned that B and C vitamins needed to be replenished and that Milk Thistle helped detox your liver. Those were basically the only products I could find, and I took them regularly.
Working (and maybe getting a little older) did something terrible to my body. I drank less and hurt more. I expanded my research and found more products that would curb the negative effects of alcohol. I brought bottles of all my new vitamins to a weekend Vegas trip that Greg and I took with our friends, and literally gave everyone handfuls of pills before we went out the first night.
The amazing thing: everyone felt great the next day.
Greg wanted to know what kind of miracle I fed him the night before. I explained what each of them were: some replenish the vitamins you lose by drinking alcohol, some detox the liver, while others just help you feel better the next day. Greg turned to me and asked the simple question, “Why don’t they make one pill that does all that stuff?”
And so Drinkwel was born.
The early stages of Drinkwel involved lots of research. We wanted to create the most effective formula, a world class health product that would promote overall health within a lifestyle that involved drinking. And if our pill could help us feel a little better the morning-after, all the better.
Eventually, we brought in experts to make sure we had the best ingredients at the right amounts. We worked with two separate doctors - a Ph.D in Biomedical Science and a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine - to finalize the formula. They really took Drinkwel to the next level with a synergistic mix of antioxidants, essential vitamins & minerals, amino acids and our own special Superfruits & Botanicals Blend.
Drinkwel is about the oxymoron. About being healthy without compromising your lifestyle. It's for people that care about their bodies AND like having a good time. For people like us.
For healthy people who drink, by healthy people who drink.
Mike’s a work hard/play hard kind of guy, who embraces the oxymoron of healthy drinking. He created Drinkwel because he wanted to take it himself and he’s put an enormous amount of effort into building a company he would want to do business with. Mike has experience working in the food industry, in finance, and in real estate. He holds a B.A. in Consumer Behavior & Globalization from the University of California, Berkeley.
Greg brings a wealth of knowledge to Drinkwel far beyond his experience. He’s a sponge for information. When he and Mike first started talking about the company, Greg knew close to nothing about alcohol nutrition. Now he can talk Mike under the table. Greg holds a B.S. in Business Administration from the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley.
