ABOUT US

AT ACTIVE ROOT WE ARE COMMITTED TO DELIVERING DELICIOUS, NATURAL GINGER SPORTS NUTRITION TO ATHLETES OF ALL LEVELS.

GINGER

We use natural root ginger in all our nutrition products. Ginger is scientifically proven to help prevent bloating, nausea and stomach discomfort during exercise, therefore allowing athletes to focus upon their performance rather than their stomach.

NATURAL

We only use natural ingredients in our nutrition. We believe that artificial ingredients are harmful to the stomach, particularly when it is put under stress during exercise. We also want our customers to know exactly what they’re putting in their bodies.

DELICIOUS

All our products have a clean, refreshing taste that leave you wanting more. We know you want your sports nutrition to taste clean and delicious so that you want to use it when you’re exercising. rather than refuelling & rehydrating with something that you don’t like the taste of!

Our History

AN IDEA ON THE RUN

Active Root was formed by Edinburgh based sports enthusiasts Will Townsend and George Ashley. Will, a keen marathon runner, often complained that mainstream sports drinks upset his stomach during races. He believed there must be a better way of staying hydrated and energised without the accompanying side effects of nausea and stomach problems...

ALL ABOUT GINGER

...He remembered that his Mum had given him ginger beer to cure stomach ailments when he was a child. He wondered if there might be a way to get the benefits of ginger into a sports drink. After much trial and error in the kitchen, they came up with a starting recipe!

GINGER THE FOX

The Active Root mascot is Ginger the fox. We chose Ginger after an encounter with a fox on the Edinburgh Meadows during a tasting session. He shot across the grass at a rate of knots, avoiding dogs and pedestrians then sprang over a wall. We were impressed! Now he is our good luck charm at all events we do!
