My husband and I recently started playing on a kickball team. During our first game last Wednesday I realized we are not as young as we used to be. We were both experiencing muscle cramping during and after the game. That’s when I told my husband we need to start doing some research on sports drinks will keep us hydrated out on the field, something with several electrolytes and something to help prevent cramping.
After doing some research, we found that BODYARMOR has everything we were looking for in a sports drink. From now on BODYARMOR is the only sports drink I will recommend. In addition to having several flavors to choose from, here are a few more things that really caught my attention and love about this sports drink.
- First of all, they have three lines of drinks to choose from:
BODYARMOR SPORTS DRINK
BODYARMOR LYTE SPORTS DRINK
- It is safe for our boys to drink
BODYARMOR is made with natural ingredients, naturally sweetened, natural flavors and nothing artificial. There is no caffeine and it is gluten-free – this gives me peace of mind because my boys always like to share my drinks with me and I know they are not drinking a sports drink full of sugar with no nutrients.
- Potassium instead of Sodium
This is a fun fact I didn’t know, potassium prevents cramping due to its role in nerve function and muscle control. Most traditional sports drinks use sodium as their key electrolyte, BODYARMOR uses potassium as a key ingredient. I really appreciate they using potassium instead of Sodium. We get enough sodium in the food we eat every day already. We don’t need any more in our sports drinks. This has made me more aware of our drink ingredients and will start checking them from now on.
- BODYARMOR Ingredients
It has more electrolytes than other sports drinks! BODYARMOR is higher in vitamins and potassium but low in sodium with some coconut water in it. BODYARMOR has no colors or flavors from artificial sources, it is naturally sweetened with pure cane sugar and coconut water. Each flavor is loaded with Vitamins A, B complex, C & E, Electrolytes and amino acids.
- Packed with Electrolytes
Electrolytes help maintain fluid balance, especially after a tough workout. When you sweat you lose water and electrolytes, which is why it so important to stay hydrated. Another bonus to having several electrolytes in this sports drink is, electrolytes help with muscle contraction, nerve signaling, bone health and prevent muscle cramping. Which is exactly what we need!
