  • Struggling to Find a Safe Electrolyte Sports Drink for Kids

    How to Find a Safe Electrolyte Sports Drink for Kids

    My two sons are obsessed with tennis. Whether they're practicing in the backyard or getting together at the courts for a match on a Saturday morning, they are at it non-stop. They're both very competitive and frequently play in day-long tournaments. I wanted to make sure they were being properly hydrated and fueled for their big matches, but I was struggling to find a safe electrolyte sports drink that and wasn't overloaded with sugar so they didn't crash after the match. That's when I found VitaLyte. I love it, and so do they. It keeps them cooled off and energized at their matches and they've also taken to bringing along bottles when they're playing with their friends. They're huge fans of the VitaLyte orange flavor sticks!

    My youngest told me he prefers VitaLyte because he actually feels it working, especially on hot days. I'm a firm believer that most of the stuff on the market today in terms of electrolyte sports drinks is all just sugary nonsense; you might as well be drinking soda. The fact that VitaLyte is made with natural ingredients and contains no artificial flavoring, sweeteners, or coloring is amazing! It's a relief knowing that when my sons are out on the courts, they're putting something in their body that's safe and good for them.

    There's a huge convenience factor to the fact that VitaLyte comes as a mix as well! We usually store a tub in the van and bring along multiple water bottles on tournament days so the boys can scoop in what they need and we don't have to lug around a huge water cooler all day. For practice, they usually take one of the individually sized packets along with a water bottle and they're good to go for the day. I haven't found another natural electrolyte sports drink that my guys like that is so easy to deal with.

    VitaLyte not only keeps them going during the matches and tournaments, but it helps them to recover the energy they've burnt afterward. If you're the parent of a child who participates in competitive sports like tennis, I'm sure you're more than aware of the dangers of heat stress. It's scary when you see someone out on the field ready to pass out from heat exhaustion. VitaLyte is a safe electrolyte sports drink that I trust to keep my boys safe on and off the tennis courts.

    See How the Lack of Electrolyte Replacement Drinks can Cause you to Feel Fatigue

    After a rigorous workout, your body is depleted of vital nutrients such as electrolytes. These minerals play a key role in helping your body stay fit with electric charges found in your blood and other bodily fluids. Although you may consider yourself to be in good shape, the lack of electrolyte replacement drinks can cause you to feel fatigue, weak, and can lead to dehydration. If left untreated, your kidneys, adrenal glands, brain, lungs, and heart can be negatively impacted.

  • Brand Ambassador Michael Drackert Getting Ready for Groundhog 10K

    Updates on Brand Ambassador Michael Drackert

    I received an unexpected free race entry to the Goundhog 10K. The whole route is located in underground storage caverns. While the outside temperature was below freezing, it was a warm 65 F in the caverns. I raced well on minimal training as I'm coming out of an off season. Not my fastest 10K, but I finished in the top 20 out of +1,000 people.

    brand ambassador Michael Drackert runningSpent a week in Hawaii for vacation. I got in touch with the Hawaiian Ultra Running Team for some trail running recommendations. Needless to say, the trails did not let me down. It was absolutely beautiful. I used the Tri-Phase endurance fuel pre runs and one packet of the Electrolyte Replacement for a couple long runs, including a tough 15 miler with close to 4,000 feet elevation gain.

    Training is ramping up with about 10 hours per week spread across the bike, run, and swim plus weight training. I'm frequently using the Complete Recovery for the amino acids as well as the chia bars. The rest of February includes a lot of base volume.



    Upcoming Events

    • March I'm racing the Tinman Biathlon... 10K run followed by 20 mile bike.
    • April I'm racing MaxTrax Duathlon (1.5 mi run, 15 mi bike, 3 mi run) and the GC Off-Road Duathlon (2mi trail run, 15 mi mountain bike)

  • How to Find Natural Pre Workout Supplements

    Natural Pre Workout Supplements Available with VitaLyte

    Sometimes I don't feel up to going to the gym. It can happen to all of us. But as I get older, exercise becomes more important to my body. If I'm to enjoy life in my thirties like I did in my teens and twenties, I need to go to the gym four or five times a week. As my life gets more hectic, however, sometimes I need a boost to get over the hump. That's why I've been utilizing the natural pre workout supplements from Vitalyte. I've had some bad experiences with energy boosters before, it's no secret that some leave you feeling like you just drank too much coffee. I don't want that; I can't be shaky and sweaty three hours after my workout. That's why recently I've been using Vitalyte's Chia Surge Energy Gel as well as their Tri-Phase Endurance Fuel. I like the energy gel because it has actual nutrients in it like palatinose, which is a complex sugar that your body consumes for sustained energy, and beta-alanine, a branched-chain amino acid that helps deter lactic acid build-up in your muscles and lets you work out longer without feeling sore. It's reassuring to know that I'm putting real nutrients into my body instead of just dumping in cane sugar and fifty times my daily recommended value of vitamin B.

    natural pre workout suppliments

    Vitalyte's Tri-Phase Endurance Fuel also skips out on needless sugars and sweeteners so your body gets what it needs without getting the garbage included in so many other natural pre workout supplements. That's not to say that the endurance fuel is hard to get down; I've really enjoyed the watermelon-flavored variety, and for those of you who, for some unthinkable reason, don't like watermelon, there is also a mandarin orange flavor. And both the energy gel and endurance fuel contain electrolytes in more finely-balanced quantities than you'll find in run-of-the-mill sports drinks. Your body requires electrolytes, which is just a fancy word for the salt ions in a solution, in order to replenish what it loses when you do physical work. Water alone won't do it - your body demands sodium and potassium ions in order to keep your circulatory and nervous systems in working order. And Vitalyte's products have just the right amount both for your pre-workout and post-workout drinks. Ultimately, that's what sets Vitalyte's products apart and why I prefer them before every workout, they contain the real nutrients your body needs without the filler.
