Most people are aware of the importance of being hydrated. However, many fail to recognize just how much dehydration can negatively impact your health and performance.
In fact, exercise performance is impaired when you’re just 2% dehydrated. Furthermore, in terms of mental performance, dehydration can lead to slower reaction times, fatigue, and poor concentration.
Dehydration occurs when you lose or use more fluid than you take in. Your body primarily loses water through breathing, digestion, and sweating. Water is used by the body in every cell, organ, and tissue for temperature regulation as well as other bodily functions.
Water isn’t the only thing that’s required for hydration. Electrolytes are minerals that play a key role in hydration as well as several other physiological processes. Electrolytes are responsible for transporting water throughout the body where it’s needed most, and they help maintain optimal fluid balance within cells.
Beyond hydration, electrolytes are required for carrying out muscle contractions and nerve impulses. Electrolytes are also needed to achieve proper pH levels within the body. Electrolytes, most notably sodium and potassium, are lost along with water and if they are not replenished then you can run into a host of health complications.
Electrolytes imbalances can lead to cramping, an irregular heartbeat, fatigue, poor performance, headaches, confusion, dizziness, and even numbness or tingling. What’s more, drinking plain water can lead to an electrolyte imbalance because you are increasing the excretion of key minerals instead of replenishing them. Therefore, proper hydration is achieved through a combination of water and electrolytes.
Electrolytes can be supplied by the diet. But if you’re a highly active individual, then it’s difficult to get enough on a regular basis which is why electrolyte supplementation is often recommended.
There are numerous electrolytes powders and drinks on the market, but most of them are extremely high in sugar and low in electrolytes. Not to mention, most do not contain all six electrolytes. Instead, they typically contain a high amount of sodium and nothing else.
Since there are very few comprehensive electrolyte supplements available, we decided to make our own! K-POW Electrolytes is an all-natural hydration drink mix that’s sugar-free, zero calories, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and doesn’t contain any artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners.
Better yet, K-POW Electrolytes come in two refreshing flavors: Kiwi Lime and Pink Lemonade. Every tub contains 30 servings!
K-POW Electrolytes contains highly bioavailable forms of all six electrolytes including:
In addition to the electrolytes, K-POW Electrolytes also contains 90 milligrams of vitamin C, 1,000 milligrams of L-Taurine, and 100 milligrams of ionic trace minerals (as ConcenTrace® AC). The vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that serves as a potent antioxidant. While the taurine is a conditionally essential amino acid that supports hydration and exercise performance.
Ionic trace minerals are a unique addition to K-POW Electrolytes because they are typically not found in nearly any other supplement. Ionic trace minerals are used by the body to conduct and energize billions of electrical impulses. These impulses are crucial for proper muscle and nerve function.
What’s more, your body relies on these minerals to absorb nutrients and balance your internal cellular water pressure. Trace minerals are extremely rare within food sources, so it’s very beneficial to supplement with them. This is just one of the many reasons why we included them in K-POW’s Electrolytes!
Since K-POW Electrolytes are stimulant-free, you can consume them anytime of the day! And you can stack them with any other product we offer! For optimal results, mix one scoop of K-POW Electrolytes with 10-12 ounces of cold water and consume before, during, or after training. Vary the amount of water to suit your taste preferences.
For a stronger flavor use less water, and likewise for a lighter flavor use more water! Depending on how much you sweat and how active you are, you can consume several servings of K-POW Electrolytes per day.
The optimal amount will depend on the individual, but for most people we recommend one to two servings a day. K-POW Electrolytes should also be consumed on non-training days to further support health, hydration, performance, and recovery.
K-POW Electrolytes are available in two delicious flavors including:
Both flavors are 100% naturally sweetened, flavored, and colored! The two natural sweeteners we use are monk fruit extract and stevia leaf extract. This combination provides the perfect amount of sweetness and eliminates that bitter aftertaste that often accompanies stevia.
Here are the inactive ingredients that are used in K-POW Electrolytes to improve the flavor, color, and mixability of the product:
If you’ve been skeptical about electrolyte powders in the past, now’s the perfect time to give them a try! We tested and analyzed some of the most popular electrolyte products on the market so that we could make the necessary changes to live up to our high standards.
For example, we removed everything that was unnecessary such as the artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors, sugars, and low-quality mineral sources. Instead, we used all-natural ingredients, the most bioavailable minerals, and added a few extras to take K-POW Electrolytes to the next level.
Not to mention, the taste of K-POW Electrolytes is unreal! This product is going to curb your craving for something sweet while supporting your hydration, health, and performance. We are extremely confident that K-POW Electrolytes is going to become a staple in your supplement stack.
