Start by getting your nutrition RIGHT.
What a Sports Drink needs to deliver the following;
- Consistent source of energy
Too many drinks are sourced with simple sugars (ingredients ending with “ose”) This causes sudden spikes in energy followed by the inevitable low. Feel good – feel bad.
- All key Electrolytes.
Electrolytes regulate our nerve and muscle function, our body’s hydration, blood pH, and the rebuilding of damaged tissue. Ensure that all the key electrolytes are contained in the right amount. An oversupply of key electrolytes can cause problems, i.e. Magnesium which has a known laxative effect.
- Taste good.
Too often sweet drinks fool athletes by tasting good during non-exercise. When exercising begins your taste buds increase their sensitivity. Anything which tastes sweet to start with will likely be unpalatable during exercise.
A Sports Drink that ticks all the boxes.
1. Uses only complex carbohydrates, that delivery a consistent. steady stream of energy, without the highs and lows.
2. Contains all the essential electrolytes in the right amounts to ensure even bodily regulation and function.
3. Flavoured with a natural plant extract Stevia. This offers a mild pleasant tasting experience that allows you to continue consumption hour after hour.
