LifeWave Receives Two Prestigious ETHOS Awards

In 2015, the Direct Selling Association (DSA) recognized LifeWave with two ETHOS Awards for our Theta One and Theta Activate nutritional formulas: the Product Innovation Award in the Wellness subcategory and the top-level Product Innovation Award.

Theta Nutrition offers a scientifically advanced combination of nutrients and a pioneering delivery system that produce results within minutes of use. This is in stark contrast to most nutritional supplements on the market, which can take weeks or even months to produce a desired effect.

ETHOS Awards are given annually to companies that exemplify the bold innovation that continues to drive our industry. Given the formidable competition in 2015, which included some of the most prominent companies in direct selling, it was truly an honor to receive these coveted awards.

The United States Patent Office has issued an official patent for the Theta One and Theta Activate nutrition technology entitled “Nutritional Product Composition for Increasing Human Growth Hormone and Nitric Oxide Production.” This issuance of our patent for Theta technology guarantees the exclusivity of this “feel it within minutes” breakthrough in the nutrition industry.
