Sometimes water is not enough.

When we sweat, our bodies are not just losing water, they are losing electrolytes, which play a vital role in how our bodies perform. So if we just drink water, we’re not replacing those essential ingredients (especially sodium) to help us from feeling rough during a workout (and probably for a while after).

The body reacts badly when we drink too much water (without the necessary electrolytes), and dilute our blood’s sodium concentration. This can result in headaches, sickness and fatigue.

Ultima Replenisher is a solution to this problem, and it happens to be a very tasty one. You can drink Ultima before, during and after your workouts. It comes in a number of different flavors, and the powder is very quick to mix up.

Ultima Replenisher is made with all 6 balanced electrolytes plus support minerals, real fruit flavors, plant-based colors, sweetened naturally with organic stevia leaf extract and no sugar, carbs or calories, ever!

It comes in 5 flavors — Orange, Cherry Pomegranate, Lemon, Raspberry, and Grape. My favorite flavor is Cherry Pomegranate, with Lemon being a close second.

My wife was out in the garden yesterday, planting flowers and spreading mulch in North Carolina heat and humidity. I quickly made her up a bottle of Lemon Ultima Replenisher and she loved it. She commented that the sweetness did not taste fake like other electrolyte based drinks we’ve tested.

After being out for a month because of an injury, I’m finding coming back to running and adjusting to the humidity outside has been difficult. I missed out on that transition period between Spring and Summer. Fortunately, Ultima Replenisher is helping me acclimatize a bit easier.

Fuel Your Workouts with Detach Coconut Water

Detach is a coconut water based drink, with a hint of lemon/lime. It’s designed to be consumed prior to your workout to help you feel energized, hydrated and refreshed.

The coconut water is definitely not the dominant flavor, it blends really well with the lemon/lime flavors. There are no “diet” sugars in it, so the texture is smooth and it’s still only 60 calories.

To keep you hydrated, the right amount of purified sea salt is added, and  organic superfood ingredients like coconut nectar and wildflower honey provide sustained energy. Key amino acids (protein building blocks) beta-alanine, citrulline and theanine to get you activated.

I have also used Detach during and after workouts. It had no negative impact on my stomach at all when I used it as a fuel source on the run. I carried it inside one of my vest bottles and it did not leave any stains or smells in the bottle itself.

Before testing Detach, I’d never tried any kind of coconut water before so I was a little dubious. If you’re not a coconut water fan, do still give Detach a try. I would never have considered it something I would have liked until I tried it.

I have a discount coupon for you if you want to try some. Use code “BIBRAVE” at drink-detach.com to get 1 FREE case of Detach. You’ll just pay shipping & handling at $14.95.
