Jones Soda is nationally launching a new tea-juice beverage that improves mental acuity and relieves stress. We definitely could all use whatever advantage we can get.
On Sunday, March 8, you can sample the new Jones GABA. Jones Soda will be on-site at the 100 Mercer St. store from 11:00am – 2:00pm and at the Queen Anne Ave. store from 3:00-6:00 pm.
Jones Soda is the first in the country to have access to use GABA in a beverage. Featuring the natural form of the amino acid, PharmaGABA, Jones GABA is clinically proven to increase alpha brainwave levels which characterize waking relaxation and mental focus. It has shown increases in test scores, athletic ability and an improved attention span.
