Hydration is one of those things that we all need to worry about this time of year whether we are training for something or not. If you are active then there is a good chance you are sweating and if you are sweating you are losing water that your body will need back.

Not only will you need the water back but if you sweat a lot, whether through intense physical activity, just the heat or a combination of the two then you are also losing essential minerals too. That salt on your hat or on your clothes are important and you want to take that into account when rehydrating. Ultima Replenisher includes support minerals and all 6 electrolytes. These ingredients are essential to properly hydrating and rehydration.

 

POTASSIUM

Naturally chelated potassium aspartate. Potassium is a key electrolyte. We also use potassium phosphate, salts of potassium and phosphorus ions. 

MAGNESIUM

Magnesium citrate and magnesium aspartate. We use two very absorbable forms of magnesium as it is a vital electrolyte to prevent cramps and fatigue.

CHLORIDE

Chloride as sodium chloride. Chloride is an essential electrolyte critically needed for the overall balance of body fluids.

CALCIUM

We use calcium citrate and calcium ascorbate which are very absorbable forms of calcium. Calcium is a key electrolyte necessary for the bones and body function.

ZINC

Zinc is a vital trace mineral. It is an electrolyte that most formulas leave out due to cost. It is critical for cell health and body function and a “go-to” for many to fight a common cold.

PHOSPHORUS

Phosphorus as potassium phosphate. As the second most abundant mineral in the body after calcium, phosphorus is good for the bones and teeth and present in every muscle cell as well as the body’s fluids.

SODIUM

Sodium chloride. Many sports drinks contain a great deal of sodium and use it as a preservative. Our formulation is similar to real food like oranges and bananas.

MANGANESE

Manganese as manganese citrate. Manganese is a trace mineral needed for bone, skin and cartilage.

Being in the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex I am experiencing warm temperatures regardless of the time of day. Even predawn the humidity keeps it warm enough to make me sweat before I really get going. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the temperatures warm enough that I can bust out my tank tops or run shirtless but there is no doubt that it is summer.

I’ve noted before that I am prone to sweating if I even look at the sun from inside for too long. I lose a lot of water and minerals through my sweat. I was excited to get to test Ultima because I am not a fan of relying on hydration drinks with artificial sweeteners or too much sugar. It upsets my stomach and isn’t worth the amount of electrolytes I might be getting back.

Ultima doesn’t have any artificial sweeteners or high fructose corn syrup. That’s already a win for me. I was already familiar with Ultima a little as my wife used it for her post workout hydration needs. I had tasted the raspberry and was a fan. I was intrigued to try the cherry pomegranate, lemon, orange and grape that Ultima offers as well. They sent me a tub of raspberry, a tub of lemonade and three sample packs with all of the flavors I listed. I couldn’t have been more pleased by the flavors. A few of my fellow Bib Rave Pros loved the grape and I have to say it is a good flavor. The orange and cherry pomegranate were great but my favorite was the lemonade and a combination of the raspberry and lemonade. Once I discovered that combination I went back to it several times.

I not only tested this to hydrate prior to and after exercise myself but had my son test it out during his Field Day at school. He likes hydration drinks a lot and asks for them any time he works up a sweat. I am happy to be able to offer him one without so much sugar in it that he enjoys the taste of.

An upside of Ultima Replenisher is that it dissolves quite easily in only 16 oz. of water. It requires very little shaking and you don’t need an actual shaker bottle either. Might not seem like a big deal to most but if you are in a hurry or don’t have a shaker then it is a nice perk.

See what my fellow BRP’s think to and I hope you’ll try some for yourself. Right now you can use code “ULBRAVE19” for 10% off the amazon.com/shops/ultimareplenisher storefront.
