What are Active Root Sports Drinks?
Active Root Sports Drinks fuel, hydrate and help prevent nausea and bloating. Each serving contains 32g of Cane Sugar (Fuel), 400mg of Sea Salt (Hydration) and 204mg of stomach settling Ginger.
We have 3x different flavours: fiery Original Ginger; cool Peppermint & Ginger; earthy Green Tea & Ginger.
Our Sports Drinks are gluten free, vegan and only contain natural ingredients.
When should you use Active Root Sports Drinks?
You can use Active Root Sports Drinks before, during & after exercise, depending on how long you're going to be exercising for.
For example, if you were out for a 4hour cycle, you might take 2x bottles with you to help fuel during, and one after to help replenish your carbs and electrolytes. If you were running a 10k you might drink before so you were fully fuelled and hydrated prior to your race.
Each serving contains 32g of carbs which is about 50% of the amount of carbs you need per hour during steady exercise, after the first hour. So if you were out for 2hrs of running, we'd advise taking 2x servings with you.
Why should you use Active Root Sports Drinks?
All our Sports Drinks contain only natural ingredients and ginger, both of which work to prevent possible stomach discomfort, nausea and bloating which are common during endurance events. The last thing you want during a run, cycle or swim is to be worrying about your stomach because your nutrition is full of artificial ingredients you are not used to consuming. Active Root actually helps you develop an appetite, which is really beneficial when you need to fuel during a long event.
On top of this, our natural sugar cane has a lower GI than artificial sugars, meaning that it takes longer to be absorbed into your blood stream and therefore there's less chance of blood sugar crashes.
We also think all our Sports Drinks taste delicious!
