A few weeks ago Skratch Labs sent me some of their Exercise Hydration Drink Mix to try, which I had previously never had.
Who is Skratch Labs?
At Skratch Labs our mission is to use real world science and practice to create the very best nutrition products. Products that taste great, that are made from real all-natural ingredients, and that are designed to optimize performance and health for both sport and life.
All in all, I was impressed with Skratch Lab''s Exercise Hydration Mix. Some of the key points about the mix that I think are important to note are:
All natural ingredients you can actually pronounce: cane sugar, dextrose, sodium citrate, real fruit, citric acid, magnesium citrate, calcium citrate, potassium citrate, ascorbic acid (vitamin C)
I tested my Skratch Labs samples after various longer runs throughout the past few weeks. While I cannot say whether or not the hydration mix improved my performance, I can say that it left me feeling more hydrated and recovered (as far as energy goes) after my more difficult workouts.
My favorite flavor is the Lemons & Limes. Other flavors to choose from are: Raspberries, Oranges, Pineapples, and Apples & Cinnamon. You can purchase the hydration mix in a 1 pound bag ($19.50) or single packets ($1.95). There is also a 20 pack of single sticks available to purchase ($35.00).
Our Exercise Hydration Mix, also known as “Secret Drink Mix”, was developed and tested in the field with athletes competing in races like the Tour de France. For years, athletes would secretly dump their sponsors’ drinks to replace it with ours, earning the name SDM from the pros who used it. Those athletes will tell you that they felt better, performed better, and didn’t experience the bloating and stomach issues that they did with other sports or electrolyte drinks. The secret was that our drink just worked better. And now that the secret is out, everyone can use this exercise drink mix to optimize hydration – whether cycling, running, skiing, clubbing, or heck, whenever you’re sweating.
Overall, Skratch exercise hydration mixes taste great, are reasonably priced, and are made of ingredients you can feel good about putting in your body.
