Whether you’re training for a marathon or want to increase your endurance through daily runs, staying hydrated is half the battle.
Maintaining a balance of electrolytes within your system is the key to both better hydration AND performance when running.
What are electrolytes, you may ask? Electrolytes are body chemicals that conduct electricity when mixed with water. These chemicals — which include sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium — help the body’s 'electric tissues' by regulating nerve and muscle function, balancing blood acidity and pressure, rebuilding damaged tissue, and hydrating the body.
When these substances become imbalanced, it can lead to muscle weakness or excessive contraction, both of which are detrimental to your performance.
To improve your running performance and take your runs to the next step, level up with Ener-C’s Non GMO Certified and all natural Sport Mix, which works to replenish essential electrolytes and minerals that are lost through sweat and other factors during your workouts.
After previously disrupting the Vitamin C market with their natural, non-GMO Vitamin C supplements, Ener-C has introduced their line of sports mixes to give runners and athletes of all levels a boost of hydration and energy before, during, and after their workouts.
Made in Canada, Ener-C’s Electrolyte Drink Mix is also natural and non-GMO certified, containing only 1g of glucose and with minerals chosen by the World Health Organization for optimal rehydration standards.
The Electrolyte Drink Mix is prime for your pre/post workout routine, to support re-hydration and muscle recovery. You can add the mix to your water and drink throughout the day to help fuel your body, support re-hydration, enhance athletic performance, and aid muscle recovery after exercise.
Ener-C’s natural effervescent and real fruit flavours are what make their drink mixes easy and enjoyable to drink up. Their Electrolyte Drink Mix is no different, and is currently available in Berry flavour.
When you purchase a box of Ener-C Sport’s Drink Mix, you also get access to a FREE professional running program, which includes a ‘Find Your Run’ booklet with a 12-week plan for runners of all levels by Ultraman World Champion, Richard Thompson, along with free online workout classes by Personal Trainer Lindsay Mustard.
Because community is key to staying on track, join Ener-C’s Run Club on Strava for tips and motivations from Vancouver’s local running community. Plus, you'll get even more exclusive access to professional training guides and product specials from Ener-C.
