Vemma Wins Two Stevie Awards for Bod-e Product Line

SCOTTSDALE, AZ, Sep 18, 2012 -- Vemma Nutrition Company won two prestigious awards at the 2012 American Business Awards at a gala event held in San Francisco. Endorsed by TV Celebrity Transformation Specialist, Chris Powell, the Vemma Bod-e healthy weight management product line won the People's Choice Stevie Award for Favorite Consumer Product or Service. In addition, the Vemma Bod-e App received a Gold Stevie Award in the Lifestyle App category.

The award trophies were presented to Vemma at a gala ceremony on September 17th at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in downtown San Francisco, CA. They were presented as part of the second (and final) phase of judging for the 2012 American Business Awards.

To receive a coveted crystal People's Choice Award, Vemma Bod-e received the highest number of votes in the consumer products and services category. A total of 98,000 consumer votes were cast in 30 categories.

"These are awesome products that are helping people see real results, so it's great that they're getting these accolades," says Chris Powell. "People really love the taste and what these products do for their body."

Other notable People's Choice winners included Apple(R) (for the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S), Humana(R) health insurance, and Appsbar, a free online apps building service.

The Vemma Bod-e App -- which features daily tips, support and inspiration from Heidi Powell, Vemma Bod-e Spokesperson, Personal Trainer and Life Coach -- was judged by executives from a 270-person panel and ultimately selected as the Gold winner (the competition's highest honor) in the lifestyle app category.

More than 3,000 entries were submitted in this year's competition. Other Gold Stevie award winners included favorite American brands such as NASCAR, Verizon Wireless, Ford Motor Company and Hilton Hotels and Resorts.

The Vemma Bod-e product line launched in January 2012, sparking the company's first million dollar sales day. Vemma Founder and CEO BK Boreyko commented, "It's been an exciting year with the Vemma Bod-e launch and we are honored with these wins at the Stevies. These awards are a reflection of the hard work of our stellar staff and the talented Brand Partners who represent our company with such integrity. I sincerely thank the Vemma Brand Partners and Vemma Bod-e consumers for choosing us as their favorite consumer product."
