Active Root – Natural Ginger Sports Drink

I stopped using the usual sports drinks you see a lot of people guzzling on a few years ago. My wife is an athletics coach and as such has a qualification in sports nutrition. She came home one day and showed me the crap that goes into these drinks and binned them. It all seemed quite logical so from that point on I was drinking water and eating Bananas for training and events.So, 6 sachets of Active Root and a 500ml bottle (the correct amount to mix with one sachet with) arrived in the new year. I can’t eat anything within 2 hours of running because I start burping it up and getting bad heartburn. So, it was great to try this stuff out. I decided to try 250ml before the run and 250ml afterward as a sort of recovery drink. It tastes great and I mean, let me just guzzle all this in a one go great. While this first try is of course not an intense study into the effects of drinking Active Root (I work in a lab we can do more) I had no bloating and it didn’t repeat on me It’s easy to mix and dissolves into the water quickly. Did I tell you it tastes great? It does.

Anyway, it is nice to have a natural drink to turn to for my runs and workouts.
