SAN DIEGO, CA–(Marketwired – Apr 4, 2017) – Youngevity International, Inc. ( OTCQX : YGYI ), a leading omni-direct lifestyle company, is launching its dynamic duo of entirely portable and mobile water bottles designed to help provide great tasting water and reduce chemicals found in tap water. The Y-DR8 filter features (ACC) activated carbon cloth and is portable to fit today’s “On the go lifestyle” — the innovative, new Y-DR8+ Bottle and filter system can not only save money on buying bottled water but also save consumer water bottles from ending up in our landfills. The government has not set new drinking water standards since 2012. Enter the Youngevity Y-DR8+ Bottle Filter and Y-DR8+ Bottle. The filter features Flexzorb, a proprietary carbon cloth to help reduce odors, make tap water taste better, and reduce contaminates and chemicals — including chlorine, TTHM’s, a known disinfecting by-product of chlorine and PPCP’s.

It is a beverage technology that we expect will have broad consumer appeal,” stated Rick Anson, Vice President of Innovation and Emerging Markets of Youngevity.
