  • New Electrolyte Replacement Stand Up Pouches

    Introducing Vitalyte's New Electrolyte Replacement Stand Up Pouches

    cool citrus electrolyte replacementAt 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."

Michael fueled for his tough off road event with Vitalyte's Tri Phase pre workout energy drink for endurance athletes. The long burning carbohydrate source in Tri Phase gave Michael enough energy to power him through fifty four minutes of twists and turns on the course.

"Tri Phase drink prior to the start gave me all the energy I needed to go for the win!"
