We keep sports drinks on hand. I try to limit how much my children drink them but like to drink them when we are outside working up a sweat. Plus my husband works in the heat all day so he brings them to work occasionally. But I have never been a huge fan of sports drinks. I never found a flavor that I liked. Plus I find they taste funny. So if I need something other than water, I stick with electrolyte water. But I was very excited to work with Body Armor and try their new sports drink. I knew my children would love them even if I didn't.
With so many sports drinks why Drink BodyArmor? I'll tell you why I choose Body Armor. To start the flavors. Not only do they have unique flavor choices like Orange Mango and Strawberry Banana but they taste amazing. Yes I LIKE the flavor of these. I am partial to the Grape because the other flavors are not my taste. But it doesn't taste fake at all. Don't worry if you are fan of Traditional flavors like fruit punch and lemon lime, they have those too!
I guess that's because it's made from all natural flavors and sweeteners, including coconut water. I couldn't find anything about a very popular sports drink is made from so I'm guessing it's not natural? But I could be wrong .
The comparison is mind blowing.. Body Armor has 600 Mg Potassium compared to 45 MG in the competitors. There is a TON less sodium which means a lot to me. With high blood pressure I have to be careful. But even with my children I don't' like to pump them with sodium
There are lots of Vitamins in Body Armor, none in the other leading sports drink. The only thing that is comparable is the sugar content. Which I wish was lower. Plus it's Gluten Free, caffeine free, not free and has No Preservatives.
We still won't indulge in sports drinks all the time but I can say I feel much better giving Body Armor to my children and husband than other sports drinks. So when we need extra hydration we will be reaching for these. But I have to say the price is pretty high so if you find a sale, stock up.
