The Lightning Bolt Story
When martial arts movie star Steven Seagal traveled to Asia searching for the ingredients for his Lightning Bolt drink he wanted a universal Asian character to summarize the drink's benefits. Seagal settled on the character known as "CHI" which is widely recognized as a symbol of power and energy in many Asian languages and cultures. When Seagal finished creating his drink, there was only one equivalent in nature -- the lightning bolt. Both mysterious and powerful, it is a symbol of the untold energy the earth has to offer.
