Our Story

Five years ago, on a bike ride in Central California, I had a vision for a better hydration beverage. As a college athlete studying biology and on my way to dental school, I learned that formulated beverages use acids as a flavor additive and preservative. As my undergraduate senior research project, I investigated the negative effects that this acidity has on our health and performance.
With no healthy alternative to highly acidic, processed, and overly sweet beverage products, I decided to make my own clean-ingredient hydration drink – without sugar or harmful additives. PHENOH is based on the belief that balance is key to life, and when scientific data and medical research meets nature's finest ingredients, we get a balanced product that considers our health, wellness, and performance so that we can thrive at our highest capacity.
