Electrolytes + Carbs
A refreshing electrolyte and carbohydrate drink designed to sustain performance, prolong your time to fatigue and optimise hydration. For use during intense or prolonged exercise such as during competition, sport, endurance training or intense gym workouts.
We know exercise performance is important to you because as people that train, play sport and compete ourselves, we have the same desire: To know that every workout, every game, every competition is done to the best of our ability. We want to improve week on week, month on month, year on year, just like you, and we know that effective hydration and on-going performance is paramount to this process. Proper hydration is essential to life and optimal human performance, so if there is a way to enhance or improve hydration, we should use it.
Electrolytes are an essential component to staying hydrated, effectively allowing your muscles to absorb liquid, contract efficiently and ensure you reduce the chances of getting cramp and hyponatremia. Every drop of sweat takes more and more fluid and electrolytes out of your system and plain water only covers half of your bases.
Did you know it takes more fluid to hydrate your body when the water is ‘naked’, as in, contains no minerals or electrolytes? Around 1.7x more, which is a lot of fluid you would have to unnecessarily consume during exercise, making urination during sport or exercise more probable, meaning you then have to carry on with too much water moving about in your stomach, and potentially inferior hydration as a whole.
During prolonged and intense exercise it’s also important to keep optimally fuelled, and this should ideally come from simple carbohydrates, the bodies most basic fuel currency. Your body only contains so much stored energy, so when we go hard, or for a long period of time, we need to keep our energy topped up, otherwise we risk ‘bonking’ or ‘hitting the wall’ (often occurring in endurance sport when your body runs out of stored energy) or a general decline in performance (when playing sport or training).
So if you engage in long duration endurance exercise, play sport where the game lasts for more than 60 minutes, or like to do gym classes, gym training or generally something that you love that’s physical and demanding for longer than 60 minutes, then Awesome Electrolytes + Carbs would be a wise addition to your diet and training regime.
What we have done with Awesome Electrolytes + Carbs is to create a clean, refreshing, awesome tasting fruit punch flavour drink that can be taken during exercise, competition or sport to enhance hydration and sustain performance.
There’s no need for expensive BCAA drinks or overly technical intra-workout formulas during exercise. Awesome Electrolytes, or Awesome Electrolytes + Carbs taste amazing and give you all you need. If you exercise intensely for a long period of time then it’s advised you use Awesome Electrolytes + Carbs, otherwise use Awesome Electrolytes for your training hydration needs.

Rationale for electrolyte and carbohydrate supplementation
When we reference the research around supplementation, we reference Examine.com as a source of easily understandable information. When it comes to Hydration and other nutritional requirements for athletics, we defer to the judgement of the ACSM and their position stands as one of the main sources of evidence-based advice for the athletic population worldwide
Awesome Electrolytes with carbs
"The goal of drinking during exercise is to prevent excessive (>2% body weight loss from water deficit) dehydration and excessive changes in electrolyte balance to avert compromised performance… During exercise, consuming beverages containing electrolytes and carbohydrates can provide benefits over water alone under certain circumstances.” Read the ACSM Position Stand on Fluid Replacement
