What makes it Awesome?
Cost effective hydration for the gym or sport
Refreshing and light to drink
Support your training and avoid cramping
In the world of fitness and sport it seems people do 1 of 3 things during exercise; drink water, drink electrolytes (maybe with carbs), or drink a BCAA drink. Research indicates that BCAA drinks serve no benefit if consuming enough protein in your diet and plain water is inferior to an electrolyte-based drink at enhancing hydration and improving physical performance, especially if the drink is sweet. It’s time for an electrolyte powder to enter your training arsenal and enhance your hydration and performance all while refreshing your taste buds while you sweat it out.
The Science Behind the Awesome
During exercise there is an increased need for water to ensure we stay hydrated, but ideally the water we consume should contain certain minerals known as electrolytes. These minerals maintain optimal cellular hydration and muscular contraction, thus increasing our performance potential and keeping cramps at bay. Added to that sweet drinks, even if they are low in calories or calorie free, also enhance performance by tricking the body into thinking sugar is being consumed, this causes the body to mobilise more fuel as more is thought to be coming into the body. In performance research this is known as ‘the mouth swilling’ effect.
Awesome Electrolytes is a low sugar, low calorie performance drink. So, if you do exercise for prolonged periods of time it is recommended to consume sugar or carbohydrates so you can prolong exercise. Thus, we recommend Awesome Electrolytes for when training 0-60 minutes, and Awesome Electrolytes & Carbs, our other hydration and performance product, for when training for over 60 minutes.

"Besides containing water, sweat contains electrolytes that are lost. If not appropriately replaced, water and electrolytes imbalances (dehydration and hyponatremia) can develop and adversely impact on the individuals exercise performance and perhaps health.” Read the ACSM Position Stand on Fluid Replacement
Does this contain caffeine?
This product is completely caffeine free.
Is this product sweetened?
Yes. This helps remind you to drink and stay hydrated, with athletes given sweetened drinks consuming more in research. There is also some small amount of research indicating that calorie free sweetened drinks improve performance, though the mechanism behind this is unknown
Why not just drink water while exercising?
Water is fine while you exercise, especially if it’s light exercise. But as soon as exercise becomes quite intense, is in hot conditions, for a prolonged period of time, or you’re someone looking to push themselves (sweet drinks may improve performance) then it is beneficial to support training with electrolytes, or electrolytes and carbs. Electrolytes have been shown to hydrate you more effectively than water alone, and hydration is paramount to performance.
Are electrolytes salt, so does it not taste salty?
We do a top job making them taste awesome, so there is zero hint of salt and all the fruitiness instead.
