Who is DNA Brands®, Inc. (DNAX.OB)?


DNA was formed by a group of individuals who are just like you. We are athletes, artists, musicians and everyday people. We got tired of all these giant companies cashing in on our lifestyle. So we decided to come up with our own brand of products which are better tasting, better priced and more effective from the everyday heroes of the world, to the working class, to the pro athletes. DNA embraces you because you are an individual. Live outside the box!


Company Overview and History

DNA Brands, Inc. was incorporated in the State of Colorado July 6, 2010.  In July of 2013, we re-launched our brand with a completely new look, logo, can design and simultaneously introduced three new flavors to complement our award winning Citrus energy drink. We currently produce, market and sell a proprietary line of five carbonated blends of DNA Energy Drink®, Cellular Citrus, Cellular Citrus Zero Calories, Cryo-Berry, Molecular- Melon and DNA Original.

We also have added three new coffee energy drinks containing omegas to our portfolio. DNA Cellular Citrus (f/k/a/ DNA Citrus) was 

named the best tasting energy drink two out of the last three years by the World Beverage Competition.
