Active Root make drinks that taste great and go down so easily because they are formulated using completely natural ingredients - you'll find no gut wrenching artificial nasties here.
Active Root's goal is to deliver a sports drink that BALANCES the body through natural ginger, delivers FUEL through cane sugar and provides effective electrolyte HYDRATION through sea salt. For more information about how Active Root BALANCES, FUELS and HYDRATES, please read on...
BALANCE - Each sachet serving contains over 200mg of natural dried ginger, the optimal amount to help alleviate symptoms of gastrointestinal stress and calm the prevalence of nausea.
We use a high gingerol compound ginger that not only tastes great but makes a genuine difference to how you feel during exercise.
FUEL - Each serving contains 32.5g of carbohydrate in the form of unbleached cane sugar.
Cane sugar is a lower GI index carb and is a slower burn fuel compared to other carbs such as maltodextrin, glucose and fructose. Slower burn carbs will help sustain you for longer and help avoid sugar highs and crashes. We also use unbleached cane sugar as it is more natural, chemical free and less unadulterated form of fuel compared to the other synthetic factory made carbs mentioned above.
HYDRATE - Each serving contains 240mg of sea salt.
Salt helps aid with re-hydration of water into the body. Sea salt also retains essential elements magnesium, chloride and potassium. These elements help maintain the balance of electrolytes in our bodies which are essential for normal function of our cells and our organs.
Depending on strength, each sachet makes 500-700ml of sports drink. Simply pour your sachet into 500-700ml of water and shake, adjusting amount of water to taste.
Cane sugar blend (Natural disaccharide, 50%, Glucose, 50% Fructose), Citric Acid, Sea Salt, (Peppermint extract in Peppermint & Ginger), Ginger Root extract, (Green Tea extract in Green Tea & Ginger flavour).
Please note, due to the natural ingredients in Active Root it is perfectly normal to find occasional small dark sugar molasses and particles of ginger fibre. When shaken the particles will mostly dissolve into your drink.
Original Ginger - We've rebooted the classic flavour of ginger beer and turned it into a new delicious sports drink. Not too sweet or spicy, the natural blend of ginger and citrus creates a refreshing and unique flavour.
Green Tea and Ginger - Active Root Green Tea & Ginger sports drink delivers a refreshing, light and slightly earthy taste, great towards the end of races or when you want a less sweet flavour option. As with all Active Root products, Green Tea and Ginger contains the optimum amount of ginger to keep your stomach settled and prevent bloating.
Peppermint and Ginger - Out of our three flavours, peppermint and ginger is definitely the least gingery. Peppermint and Ginger has a cool, refreshing, naturally minty taste that combines well with the warmth of ginger. It can be drank before, during and after exercise.
