A little from Sean on the experience..."because it’s an honor to work with National Geographic, having grown up in the DC area visiting their headquarters, seeing their exhibits, reading the society magazine. They were a huge influence in how I began viewing exploration around the world and in planning expeditions. The opportunity to work with and compete against other competitors, each the best in their fields of expertise, and see how we each approached and strategized on the survival challenges was enticing".
More about Sean: A multiple Guiness world-record holder in extreme sports. He didn’t just climb Mt. Kilimanjaro – he ran to the summit in under five and a half hours. Sean climbed Mt. Everest solo almost completely without supplemental oxygen and won a marathon in world record time on the North Pole in snowshoes. Most recently, he climbed a record 63 previously unclimbed snowcapped peaks in Tibet in just 23 days. Sean says, "Amazing Grass keeps me energized throughout the day, and the flavors and taste are truly amazing. I use it in smoothies everyday as a recovery drink for my training."

Sean says, "Thanks AG for making such an extraordinary product. I consumed the grass everyday in mass quantities while training for my winter ascent of Mt. Fuji. I have no doubt your products contributed to sustaining my healthy energy levels that enabled me to establish the record."
