Fluid Performance drink mixes are designed using all-natural ingredients to supply efficient energy, buffer lactic acid and alleviate cramps during exercise. Fluid concentrates on providing a sports drink that has less sugar and more (high quality) electrolytes than most other drinks on the market. With less sugar and additives, Fluid is easier on your stomach and easier for your body to absorb.
Fluid vs. Other Sports Drinks
Serious athletes drink sports drinks such as Fluid for the combination of maltodextrin and fructose – in that order. The combination of maltodextrin and fructose equal a complex carbohydrate.This is vital for athletes as it increases the total carbohydrate transport, creating available energy and oxidation, in turn allowing you to exercise at a higher VO2 max once glycogen stores are depleted.
Artificial sweeteners, simple sugars (e.g. evaporated cane juice) and other mystery ingredients are common in many sports drinks. Despite research proving that ingesting large amounts of sugar, artificial sweeteners and mystery ingredients can cause major intestinal problems including diarrhea and/or cramping – not good news for any athlete or exerciser. (I’m sure some of you can attest to this effect first hand!)
Many people equate good taste with an artificially high sweetness level. By contrast, Fluid tastes light with a hint of sweetness while providing quality hydration.
Fluid contains no artificial ingredients, stimulants, colors or flavors. It is 100% natural and is gluten-free and lactose-free. Fluid contains the highest quality electrolytes minus the junk that is in so many other products.
It’s your body, so choose wisely. And, drink your Fluid!
