Leaves are changing colors, suddenly soup sounds like the perfect thing for dinner and your flip flops have been replaced with your boots by the front door. At Vitalyte we love the subtle entrance that Fall makes. But don't be fooled by this tiptoeing giant! He packs a mighty punch when it comes to plummeting temps and the effects that cooler weather can have on your hydration levels. Yes, that is correct! Colder weather can cause dehydration. Usually hot weather is associated with dehydration, but when the mercury falls your body does require electrolytes just as much as it does during a sunny day. Plus when it is cold and dry, the lack of moisture in the air requires more moisture in your body to counterbalance the dry air you are breathing in. So go ahead and curl up with a mug of your favorite tomato bisque. We will be waiting with a tall glass of electrolyte replacement right next to that perfect grilled cheese so you can stay hydrated.
At Vitalyte Sports Nutrition we are sports enthusiasts! Whether it's a Saturday spent watching college football or a Sunday afternoon backyard game of table tennis with your friends, sports bring us together and a bring "play" back into our adult lives. That's why we support and celebrate those who have a passion for sports. We created our brand ambassador program to highlight the athletic journeys of those who compete for the love of an active lifestyle. These Vitalyte enthusiasts spread the good word to their friends, colleagues and competitors about the importance of staying hydrated and the best in electrolyte replacement. In fact Vitalyte has been talking about hydration and making our electrolyte replacement drink for over forty years. We are pretty proud of that! But we are even more proud of our latest brand representatives. So take a moment to read more about soccer player extraordinaire Cameron Roget, track sensation Annie Leblanc and senior tennis star Gregg Hepner on our website at "Meet the Brand Ambassadors".
Hopefully they inspire you to share your story with us! In the mean time, stay healthy, stay hydrated, drink Vitalyte.
Vitalyte Electrolyte Replacement at the North American Orienteering Championships
Where would we be without our iMaps, Google Maps, Waze and other helpful navigation apps for our smartphones? Whether you need to find your way from the office to a local auto repair shop, or from home to that little beach cottage five hours north, modern technology makes our oil stops and road trips more efficient and less frustrating. But, I have to admit, I remember the days when you needed to pay attention to how you got somewhere so you could get back. Like Hansel and Gretel but without the breadcrumbs! Not having had the convenience or brilliance of a true smartphone until my mid-thirties, I relied on learning from my mistakes to help my navigation scores improve. After all, proper nav ability was a form of modern day survival skills. My game became so sharp, and word of my acquired talent spread so fast, that my friends would call me in a teary-eyed panic from their flip phones while I would ask the pertinent questions like, "Did you pass the three story building with the purple balcony across from the donut shop yet? If you did you, you went too far." I literally steered my peers away from crying fits and panic attacks and I lost count of how many job interviews I rescued from the perils of "I'm going to be five minutes late, this looks so bad?" But alas my need diminished and my demand dwindled with advancement in technology and the app phenomenon. I could still find my way out of an un-named alley like nobody's business, but what did it mean anymore? I thought my skill was, well like the pay phone, a great thing but no longer relevant! But then I was told that, at Vitalyte, we were going to be sponsoring the largest orienteering meet in North America Orienteering?! I was quite intrigued and impressed when I learned about the combination of mental sharpness and physical fitness that was involved in the sport. Not only do participants have to navigate through challenging terrain using only a compass and map, but they have do so with the swiftness of a world-class sprinter, the alacrity of a top rated fitness competitor and the endurance of champion distance runner. A sport that calls on unassisted mental acuity, focus and athletic skill. It was like a math quiz with no calculators allowed! I was sold! "No wonder these athletes are reaching for Vitalyte," I thought. Our electrolyte replacement drink is perfect for orienteering athletes who require glucose to keep their brain power sharp and essential electrolytes to keep their bodies functioning on all twelve cylinders.
This September the North American Orienteering Championships will be held on the campus of the prestigious Dartmouth College. Hundreds of the top competitors in the sport will take part in this event that showcases some of the world's elite. Vitalyte will be on hand to help keep all those taking part hydrated and safe. And I will be watching feverishly to learn a few tips from the best, sans smartphone style!
Team Vitalyte and the US Open
Ah Flushing Meadows! That iconic spot where on an early fall day you can catch a cool, crisp breeze that carries interludes of the salty Atlantic with freshly cut grass from adjacent Citi Field. Only in the Big Apple can world-class tennis and America's favorite pastime share such close quarters. And just as the waking giant due north wipes the dreariness from its eyes after last night's extra-innings game, the gates open at "Flushing" and tennis is center stage. For those two weeks in September, America's pastime quietly steps aside for the. Sure home runs are cracked over center field and double plays are made. The grass stains are the same as fourteen days prior and the raspberries from the red clay sting just as much, but no one's complaining. The game is played with the world' best and the bows are taken, but the roses are thrown to those competing at a different sport. New Yorkers love their boys of summer, but they pay their respects to those visitors coming to test their craft on the hard courts. And so it is that slides are taken and slams hit and grunting feats of athletic prowess echoed. But during this time of year it isn't about the diamond. Blevins, Colon and Familia are chanted and applauded starting in April. But they are happy to quietly play and excel while the grounds to the South are filled with the reverberating names of Angie, Andy and Novak. Giving those that love the game of tennis a chance to see the greats in one of the greatest sporting venues of all time, the US Open. And we are one of the many who love tennis! When we created our electrolyte replacement drink for tennis it was our way of saluting those players who slice and lob, dig and dive. Those players who strive for greatness. Those players who at the end of the day, when even the city that never sleeps takes a power nap, are thinking about how to be better.
So whether you are a USTA league player or a WTA superstar, good luck! Know that you have a champion on your side of the court. Oh and to the boys of summer, you can guarantee we will be eagerly watching those triple plays just as soon as the champions are crowned at Arthur Ashe Stadium!
Introducing Vitalyte's New Electrolyte Replacement Stand Up Pouches
At Vitalyte Sports Nutrition we believe in TGIF, Sunday barbecues, birthday celebrations and anniversary parties. That is why when we turned forty years young we decided to go all out. Were we going to sit in the corner with an anti aging firming mask on our face and pout about seeing another decade? No way! Were we going to cry when we received the "Happy Birthday" post card from our dentist? Heck no! And were we going to go into panic when we saw the server at PF Chang's round the corner with a slice of mudpie that had a candle on top? Uh huh! No we did what any self-respecting four decade turning, trailblazing, passionate, age defying individual would do! We put our chin up and shoulders back and looked in the mirror and said, "It's time to do this in style!" And we went to work. Our branding team created, what we feel, is the perfect fresh new look for us. The bright bold colors will bring a smile to your face every time you reach for our perfect electrolyte replacement for daily use. The stand up pouches are more Eco friendly and keep our product fresher, longer.
But we didn't stop there. We looked for the best non GMO sources of ingredients and reformulated our product with them. We knew we were already good but we wanted to be better. We wanted to be as good on the inside as we now were on the outside. And after a lot of work, and truth be told, frustrating times with trial and error, we got it right. And I think you will agree too that we hit it out of the park. I hope you enjoy the way we celebrated forty as much as we did. And as the kids say, we are feeling "on fleek."

He and doubles partner Jack Sock brought home the bronze medal with a win over Canadians Vasek Pospisil and Daniel Nestor. Another Vitalyte athlete, doubles specialist Rajeev Ram was not about to be outdone. He played a great match with his partner, Brian Baker, to make it into the second round of men's doubles. This University of Illinois grad gave the fans even more to cheer about when he played with Venus Williams in mixed doubles to take home the silver medal! These athletes certainly don't rest on their laurels. After Rio, Steve and Rajeev will head straight to the US Open which begins August 29th.
While Vitalyte athlete Mariah Kelly did not qualify for the Canadian Olympic team, this 1500 meter specialist took her talents to Europe this summer to compete in the racing circuit. The British Columbia resident improved her personal best times in two events. A fantastic way to end a great season for Mariah. She is committed to the next four years of training to help push her to a spot on the 2020 team for games of the thirty second Olympiad in Tokyo.
Congratulations to all of our Vitalyte athletes on their successes this summer. Stay healthy, stay hydrated, drink Vitalyte!
