Sports Water Done Simple and Pure!
Written by Gayle
Ok, I'll just say it. My muscles cramp. A lot. Charlie Horses are not my friend, but they sure like me. And exercise makes it much worse. So I like to supplement my water with an electrolyte drink. But have you tasted some of those? All the sugar, all the sodium, the disgusting taste... Not to mention the cost and all of those plastic bottles junking up the environment!
So a few years ago I tried the Alacer brand (makers of Emergen-C -- The must-have vitamin C powder!) Electro Mix. I just tear open the little packages (one per liter of water) and pour the powder into my sports bottle--fill with ice and water, and voila! Instant sports drink!
Electro Mix has potassium, magnesium, Manganese, Calcium, and Chromium to help replace those minerals lost with exercise. It's not sickening sweet, or too sour either. It has a really nice, fresh lemon-lime flavor. I usually carry a couple of packets of Electro Mix in my saddle pack. If I run out of water I can easily buy a bottle and add my Electro Mix!
Try some Alacer Electro Mix! Your muscles with thank you.
Happy cycling, running, and hiking!
