Ultima Replenisher Review and Giveaway!

Have you ever looked at the side of a sports drink? Go ahead and look at the nutritional value-- tons of sugar, calories and little nutritional value. They fool us to believe that we are doing something good for our bodies when we drink their sports drinks, but in actuality whatever calories you burned during exercise, was probably equal to the calories taken in from the sports drink! But, our bodies need electrolytes before, during and after exercise. Ultima Replenisher is a natural sports drink with zero sugar. It contains a full complement of electrolytes, not just a ton of sodium. Ultima also contains complex carbs for energy, water-soluble vitamins and vitamin enhancers for day-to-day health maintenance, and antioxidants to protect body systems from free radicals (toxins).  

My daughter Emma, like most kids, needs plenty of liquids throughout the day. First thing in the morning, she has to take a powdered laxative with her breakfast-- it doesn't go well with water, so I find myself mixing it with fruit juice. Well now she is a fruit juice junkie-- juice is good in moderation, but water is always better. My choice thought now is Ultima Replenisher! Instead of the extra calories from the fruit juice, she is now consuming good-for-you vitamins and minerals that replenish the body. By taking the laxative, she loses many of the vitamins and nutrients in food, so Ultima Replenisher is perfect! She loves the fruity taste, I love the fact that it is only 10 calories and adds nutrition to her sippy cup! I also got to try out the adult version of Ultima Replenisher in all of their great flavors! The flavors are not overly sweet, but when served cold, it's delicious! My favorite has to be the grape-- who doesn't love grape?!
What is Ultima Replenisher?
Ultima Replenisher is the most-advanced, balanced electrolyte drink available in the world. Through years of research and testing, Ultima's formulators found that optimal hydration requires a good balance of the electrolytes and that electrolytes are most readily absorbed with a proper amount of carbohydrate. With no carbohydrates, the absorption of electrolytes is very low and with excessive carbohydrates, the absorption is slowed by a long and necessary digestion process. Ultima's researchers found that by minimizing carbs, and using only complex carbs, rather than simple sugar, the absorption is quick and effective.
What are electrolytes and why are they so important?
The word "electrolyte" is derived from words meaning "carry" and "energy". Electrolytes are minerals found in the healthiest foods we can eat, such as fruit and vegetables, The main electrolytes include the macro-essential electrolytes: calcium, chloride, magnesium, potassium and sodium, and the micro-essential electrolytes: selenium, zinc and phosphorus. These minerals, when used in proper ratios, can be utilized by the body systems to control blood flow and oxygen utilization, which thus keeps our cells healthy and our muscles strong and loose. Ultima's formula focuses on provided all of the electrolytes in correct and useable ratios. Hydration depends on electrolytes and the best way to stay hydrated is to make certain you get electrolytes.
How can I tell if I am dehydrated and need electrolytes?
Symptoms of dehydration include headaches, fatigue, leg cramps, sluggishness, even hunger (what often appears as hunger is the body signaling for hydration). Jet lag is a symptom of dehydration and so is a hangover. Each of these symptoms can be treated by using Ultima Replenisher, the balanced electrolyte drink.
When do we use electrolytes?
Awake or asleep, our bodies use electrolytes. When exercising or in the heat, we use more electrolytes. Flying, hiking, and mental activity, such as an exam or clinic requires electrolytes. Evidence of electrolyte use is most noticeable in our sweat, the salty taste is the taste of the electrolytes.
How long does Ultima Replenisher take to be absorbed?
In clinical studies, we have measured the absorbability to take about 10 minutes. This means that if you have a headache or a leg cramp due to depletion of electrolytes (a.k.a. dehydration) it will take about 10 minutes for Ultima to start working. Thus, sluggishness or a hangover can be quickly addressed, and without sugars like glucose, fructose or sucrose or stimulants like caffeine, taurine or guarana.
Who is Ultima Replenisher good for?
We have done trainings and clinics at hospitals, holistic health centers, yoga studios, marathons and triathlons, during century rides, at base camps and on mountain-tops, at soccer games and the little leagues and at some of the biggest athletic events in the world in other company's "name brand" coolers and sometimes our own. Ultima Replenisher is great for the "sippy-cup and up". It's great for kids of all ages, moms and dads, hikers and skiers, pilots and passengers, road warriors and road trippers, conductors and long-haul truckers, travelers and those bed-ridden, dieters and diabetics, seniors and teenagers, pregnant women-- before, during and after labor, and also celiacs, those with Crohn's or colitis or most any other G.I. issue, vegetarians and vegans, plus those with colds, diarrhea, the flu... whew!

The sampler packs are $12.00 and their canisters of flavored Utima Replenisher  for adults is $16.00-- a bargain for 30 servings!
