The Story Behind EX5

Craig Hart and Brian Brothers are the owners of the Covington, Louisiana based business, H & B Beverages, LLC.

In 2010, Craig and Brian began research to develop a product, what is now known as, EX5. Through their research, they found that Gatorade and Powerade were identified as unhealthy by both parents and professional athletes, but there were no other healthier options.

EX5 was developed on the LSU campus with Dr. John Finley – head of the Louisiana State University AgCenter’s Department of Food Science – as well as with input from current and former professional athletes. EX5 is designed based on the need of the consumer to have a sports drink, and thirst quencher, centered on health and performance.

H&B Beverages is committed to providing the most innovated and scientifically beneficial product line to ever hit the market.
