Electrolytes + Carbs
Easily mixed to your taste and needs
Support long duration or intensive training
Fast acting carbs for maximised performance
Want to know what can prolong optimal human performance while you exercise? Carbohydrates and electrolytes. That’s why the fitness world has been drinking sports drinks to prolong performance for a very long time. It has also been popular in the past to consume BCAA based drinks, or consume fat sources such as coconut oil, or other new and ‘innovative’ compounds, but the beautiful simplicity remains, the body loves sugar as a fuel source as it’s fast digesting and easily usable while exercising hard. Combine this with electrolytes to support muscular contraction and hydration, and what remains is a winning, simple, cost effective intra-workout formula.
Thus, we created Awesome Electrolytes + Carbohydrates, a simple, tasty, cost effective, fruit punch flavoured drink you can sip while you exercise so you keep on top of your hydration and performance needs. This is a product we recommend during prolonged exercise, or exercise that is very tough and you want to ensure you can maintain the intensity.
Proper hydration is essential to optimal human performance, and so is having enough available fuel for the working muscles. So, if you exercise for 60 minutes plus like you would in endurance activities, exercise classes, long gym sessions that are high volume, sport or hiking, then Awesome Electrolytes + Carbs is a simple, cost effective way to support your needs.
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. There’s no need for expensive BCAA drinks or overly technical intra-workout formulas during exercise. Awesome Electrolytes + Carbs taste amazing and gives you all you need, in a cost-effective way. Another simple product to keep you Awesome, while you do the thing you love, exercise!
Simply add 1/2 -1 one scoop, or however much carbohydrate you feel you need to 500-1000ml of water per hour of exercise.

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
