Original Ginger Flavour Sports Drink 1.4kg Mix Tub (40 servings)

Active Root is a sports drink that aims to optimise fuelling and hydration. It delivers the benefits of natural root ginger – an ingredient that helps keep the stomach settled during exercise.*

We asked for customer feedback and we’ve used that to improve the original product. Each serving now has more electrolytes, is faster dissolving and easier pouring, but still has the same great natural taste.

A 1.4kg tub contains 40 servings of 35g. That makes Active Root good value as a way to keep hydrated during exercise.

Active Root enhances performance in three ways – BALANCE, FUEL and HYDRATION.

BALANCE – The ginger in the product eases stomach discomfort before, during and after exercise (200mg p/s)

FUEL - Natural unbleached cane sugar is a source of clean carbohydrate fuel (32g p/s)

HYDRATION – Natural sea salt helps replace electrolytes lost in sweat (400mg p/s)

The Performance Benefits

BALANCE reduces symptoms of nausea and stomach discomfort. That means it’s easier to take on FUEL, making HYDRATION more effective. You’ll feel better and perform better. The customer reviews from regular users of Active Root confirm the benefits.

Natural elements, including ginger, are essential for a settled stomach and optimum performance. We use unadulterated whole ingredients and no chemicals or artificial preservatives to ensure Active Root works in harmony with your body, helping you feel great.

All our products are gluten-free, dairy-free and suitable for vegans.

I love the ginger flavour and the taste is not over powering like most branded sports drinks. Very practical for ultras when you can take your own supplies and add at aid stations. The new Active Root dissolves easier too, although adding a small amount of warm water helps. Marathon running b/friend with sensitive stomach has recently been converted too, so guess I'll have to order even more now!

I love this one during or after my runs when I not looking for a Caffeine boast. It reminds me of a non carbonated version of a good ginger ale. I have used this on many of my long runs and love how it keeps my tummy nice and calm.

Keep making great stuff!!!

Does what it says on the tin, refreshing and sweet or sticky, no stomach issues on long events :-)

Excellent product. Been looking for something that can help with the stomach issues One has endured and these guys have produced just that!!
Normally have it with cold water, however tastes just as great with hot water especially after a long plod in the cold weather ????

I’ve always struggled with finding a sports drink that isn’t sickly sweet and doesn’t give you an upset stomach.

Originally tried a sample of Active Root at one of the Spartan races and haven’t looked back. Great taste and it certainly settles those pre race nerves.
Been used for obstacle course races, trail runs, half marathons and CrossFit session.
Thoroughly recommend it.
