Product Description

Active Root is a natural energy source free of artificial sweeteners. Fresh tasting and easy on the pallet, there are no nasty after tastes often experienced with other synthetic 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. Click here for more info

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 - We've rebooted the classic flavour of ginger beer and turned it into a new delicious sports drink. Not too sweet or spicy, the natural blend of ginger and citrus creates a 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 - Simply pour sachet into a 500-700ml sports bottle, mix thoroughly until dissolved, then you're ready to go.


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.

Fantastic products, it’s the only thing my stomach can tolerate for my long runs.

Love these amazing products created by these very clever people. Up until I was advised to try Active Root from Run4It in Inverness I really struggled to find anything that my stomach could tolerate. Now, I cannot consider a run without feeling up on Active Root. It’s brilliant! Love it, Thank you

Ordered one of each flavour to see which I liked the best, all really nice and difficult to decide on 1. No horrible taste of sweeteners and not overly sweet. About to order a tub of it now!

David 15/08/2019

I have re-ordered the taster sachets several times now as I like all the flavours, hard to pick a favourite. Refreshing to drink when on long runs and best of all no gut bombs.

I have tried all flavours and since then bought boxes of the Green Tea flavour sachets at various events. Absolutely love it, whether I use it for my gym workouts, running, hiking in the alps or on mountain biking holidays in the scorching sun of Bulgaria - it always keeps me well hydrated without upsetting my stomach. I like the extra boost it gives me and that it's not as sweet as other drinks. Another benefit is that it still tastes nice when it gets a bit warm. My favourite flavour is the green tea with peppermint being nice and refreshing too.
