Active Root is a natural energy source that's fresh tasting and easy drinking. It can be consumed before, during and after exercise. Because it uses natural ingredients it doesn't have a nasty after taste often experienced with other sweetened sports drinks.
Each drink of Active Root BALANCES the body through natural ginger, delivers FUEL through cane sugar and provides effective electrolyte HYDRATION through sea salt.

BALANCE - Each sachet serving contains over 200mg of natural dried ginger, the optimal amount to help alleviate symptoms of gastrointestinal stress and calm the prevalence of nausea. We use a high gingerol compound ginger that not only tastes great but makes a genuine difference to how you feel during exercise.

FUEL - Each serving contains 32.5g of carbohydrate in the form of unbleached cane sugar.
Cane sugar is a lower GI index carb and is a slower burn fuel compared to other carbs such as maltodextrin, glucose and fructose. Slower burn carbs will help sustain you for longer and help avoid sugar highs and crashes. We also use unbleached cane sugar as it is more natural, chemical free and less unadulterated form of fuel compared to the other synthetic factory made carbs mentioned above.

HYDRATE - Each serving contains 400mg of sea salt.
 Salt helps aid with re-hydration of water into the body. Sea salt also retains essential elements magnesium, chloride and potassium. These elements help maintain the balance of electrolytes in our bodies which are essential for normal function of our cells and our organs. Click here for more info

Original Ginger - Not too sweet or spicy, the natural blend of ginger and citrus creates a light, refreshing and unique flavour.

Green Tea and Ginger - Active Root Green Tea & Ginger sports drink delivers a refreshing, light and slightly earthy taste, great towards the end of races or when you want a less sweet flavour option. As with all Active Root products, Green Tea and Ginger contains the optimum amount of ginger to keep your stomach settled and prevent bloating.

Peppermint & Ginger - Out of our three flavours, Peppermint is definitely the least gingery. Peppermint has a cool, refreshing, naturally minty taste that combines well with the warmth of ginger. 

DIRECTIONS - Mix one 35g sachet of Active Root into 500ml-700ml of water to create your own drink. Adjust quantity of mix for the intensity of exercise you are undertaking. Customisable and great tasting.


Cane sugar blend (Natural disaccharide, 50%, Glucose, 50% Fructose), Citric Acid, Sea Salt, Ginger Root Extract

Please note, due to the natural ingredients in Active Root it is perfectly normal to find occasional small dark sugar molasses and particles of ginger fibre. When shaken the particles will mostly dissolve into your drink.

I tried active root at a running event and loved it. I don’t like gels or anything like that as I find it makes me more nauseous. I’m currently training for my 1st marathon and find this really helps tackle the nausea and tastes great too. I wish I knew about this when I was pregnant to help with morning sickness. Ginger and peppermint is definitely my favourite.

I tried active root at an event and haven’t looked back. Bought it as I am training for a marathon and it really helps settle my stomach. I wish I knew about this when I was suffering from morning sickness. ???????? Ginger and peppermint is definitely my favourite

Tastes great & easy on the stomach. Like all 3 flavours though original is my favourite! The larger bottle is handy for a milder flavour & finger grips :)

I absolutely love this stuff, recently fuelled & hydrated me through some really hot days on my bike attempting some alpine climbs, when I really didn’t feel like eating much. The bottle is really cool too, really easy to grab & drink whilst on the move. I’ve tried both the peppermint & ginger & love them both. The sachets are really handy to stick in my bag so I can easily refill the bottles when out for many hours. I also keep a big tub at home & am well impressed now that I can get it refilled once it runs out! Cheers Active Root folks!

I've been using Active Root for around a year now, it has helped feed me through a couple of marathons, a few Ultra's and a gazillion training runs. The ginger taste is quite mild, and the different flavours compliment each other well. As for feeding my work outs, it has transformed my from a gel sucker that suffered from a lot of stomach issues to someone who rarely touching gels and has no stomach issues.
On cold winter mornings I make bottle with hot water which fairly warms the cockles.

Also if you are feeling a bit blurrgh mix some up with boiling water cover your head with a towel, lean over the bowl, and breathe in the steam and once it cools down drink it. You'll feel like a new person.
