When working up a sweat, many may reach out for a sports energy drink. But have you ever wondered how and when sports drinks were created? 🤔
These athletic aids originated all the way back to 1965 when a team of University Physicians at the University of Florida developed a drink to help the school’s football team replenish the fluids and electrolytes their players lost during practice and games. That drink went on to be the multi-colored concoctions we know now as Gatorade. Since then, Gatorade and other sports drinks can be found in practically every store that sells food and beverages.
Unfortunately, modern day sports drinks and supplements aren’t as healthy as athletes should expect them to be. A 20-ounce bottle of Gatorade can have up to 38 grams of sugar!
This is where Purium’s Super Lytes comes in to deliver peak performance benefits while remaining all-natural.
What is it?
Super Lytes is the ultimate rehydration and electrolyte supplement made from only the purest ingredients. It is the natural alternative for sodium pills and artificial sports drinks.
- Aids in balancing sodium and electrolyte levels
- Contains quality sodium from Himalayan sea salt
- Balanced with added magnesium and potassium to reduce cramping and headaches
Himalayan Pink Salt: The more natural alternative to table salt, Himalayan Pink Salt contains trace minerals potassium, magnesium, and calcium. Because of its sodium level, this salt helps balance electrolytes. Naturopaths and traditional medicine practitioners also believe it promotes hydration, efficient sleep, digestion, and better recovery from strenuous workouts.
Organic Rooibos Extract: A caffeine-free alternative to black and green tea, this extract contains vitamin C and health-promoting antioxidants. Helping support the body’s response to free radical damage, Rooibos may also help lower blood pressure, promote healthy skin and hair appearance, and support exercise performance. Our extract is sourced from South Africa.
Take three capsules daily. May spread out the three capsules throughout the day or whenever you are participating in vigorous exercise for a sustained amount of time.
Why We Make It
Whether you are an elite athlete, or someone who has a very active job, it’s critical that you replenish liquids lost during heavy activity. As we mentioned earlier, most sports drinks you find on shelves today are loaded with sugar and artificial ingredients.
Super Lytes was formulated for those who are looking to optimize their performance and recovery with pure and premium ingredients. Sports supplements shouldn’t seem healthy, they should be healthy.
