With all the competing sports drinks out there, one has to wonder if you’re just better off with plain old water. Not so, according to the scientists; sports drinks have other advantages over water for athletes and exercisers that go beyond better hydration. Don’t worry about the calories in sports drinks either, which have been shown to increase energy and endurance, limit the immune system suppression that sometimes follows hard workouts, reduce exercise-induced muscle damage, and promote faster recovery.
All that said, if you are just a casual exerciser you also want something that also refreshes and tastes good, without adding unnecessary calories (another hour on the treadmill.)
We discovered ActiV water which is 100% natural, has only 25 calories per serving, and is packed with electrolytes, vitamins and antioxidants. Better yet, it’s delicious – esp. the Black Berry, but there’s a vast selection of flavors. Dragonfruit anyone?
