Our Story

Our Story

X2 is based in science with nearly 10 years in research and development. We began by formulating a patented performance-enhancing supplement. From there we created X2, a great tasting, all-natural energy drink for all day, every day, healthy living.
“ We are continually innovating by breaking traditional boundaries to meet consumer demand for natural products that deliver on energy, nutrition and performance. ”
Dr. Ralph M. Ferrante CEO

How X2 evolved

A HISTORY ROOTED IN SCIENCE

Concerned with the excessive use of and dependence on performance-enhancing drugs, our founder, Dr. Ralph Ferrante, committed himself to developing a natural alternative to dangerous products and banned substances. Leveraging his background in sports science, Dr. Ralph worked with a team of scientists and researchers to investigate the ability to enhance human performance naturally. His work led to a focus on ATP, the molecule found in every cell of the body that is essential for energy.  

We spent nearly 10 years in continual research and development of our patented performance-enhancing composition, X2PERFORMANCE® Natural Sports Energy. This product enhances ATP generation and regeneration to optimize physical performance, and has proven itself with professional athletes of the highest levels in all the major sports. 


EMBRACED BY PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES & ORGANIZATIONS

Having long-sought a healthy and functional alternative to excessive stimulants and questionable ingredients found in many of today’s most popular products, professional athletes and coaches were drawn to the X2 natural sports supplement. We have always been committed to the highest standards of quality, obtaining the coveted NSF Certified for Sport® designation for the X2 Natural Sports Energy product. Today, greater than 15 teams across the four major sports leagues use X2PERFORMANCE®.


HELPING PEOPLE MAINTAIN A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE EVERY DAY 

Students, teachers, businessmen and women, athletes, truck drivers, parents – everyone wants more energy. The problem was that many of the energy drinks available were formulated with questionable ingredients, are not natural, and don't taste very good. 

So, we innovated yet again. We took our learnings from our patented sports nutrition product based in the science of ATP and human performance to develop an energy drink for all day, everyday use that is all-natural and easy to drink. X2 All Natural Energy uses caffeine from green tea and natural sugars to deliver a great-tasting energy drink with no crash, no jitters and no artificial ingredients.
