Natural Sports Nutrition that's Easy on the Stomach
Why Use Active Root
Put simply, we make great tasting, easy to digest drinks and gels that help keep you balanced, fuelled and hydrated during all forms of exercise.
What is Balance, Fuel, Hydrate?
Balance, Fuel, Hydrate is our unique formula that combines optimal levels of balancing ginger with easy to digest natural fuel and hydration. The result is a steady stream of natural fuel, that keeps you hydrated and energised but without gut bombs, sometimes experienced with other artificial sports nutrition.
BALANCE - Root Ginger
Our nutrition is balanced with a special ingredient - natural root ginger. The compounds in ginger are proven to help promote normal stomach function during exercise
All NATURAL & GREAT TASTING
Our drinks and gels taste great and go down so easily because they are formulated using completely natural ingredients - you'll find no gut wrenching artificial nasties here.
DEVELOPED BY EXPERT NUTRITIONISTS
Co-Founder and Sports Nutritionist Huw Stradling has overseen the development of Active Root. He has experience working with top level sports teams across the UK and in the military.

The study at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh has since been peer reviewed and can be viewed here.

I love this stuff, and no longer use any other energy drink product. I use it on my long training runs and during ultra-marathon races. It tastes great and I have never had any stomach problems when using it. Can't ask for more.
I have been using this product for 18 months, and I find it fantastic. I use it on sportives and triathlons and it is much easier to drink on the bike than other brands. I will continue to use this product through my training to do my first Ironman in Wales in September.
I don’t usually do this type of think but felt inspired to drop you an email. Being a long term sufferer of bowel disease, I often had to choose between having the energy to finish a ultra bike or running event, or facing the potential race ending effect most energy products have on my stomach. That was until I discovered your products! To say that they are the holy grail of energy supplements to me is an understatement, so thank you very much.
Very happy customer
As an ultra runner, I have been on a mission to find sustenance that I can tolerate for hours at a time. I used Active Root at a recent British 100 km Championship and I never got fed up of the taste, I never bonked, I felt there was a steady stream of energy throughout the race.
Robert - Ultra Runner
While using Active Root I have never felt the weakness set in when using just water, or nausea that can come from overly sweet sports drinks.
Riding long distances can be really testing for the digestive system. I have found that Active Root really calms my stomach helping me to maintain an appetite. The spice makes it great on the palette too and a refreshing change from the sweet drinks and snacks so often consumed when exercising. It has now become a integral part of my routine.
