Healthy Thirst Quenchers To Beat The Summer Heat

Healthy Thirst Quenchers To Beat The Summer Heat | Bulu Box - sample superior vitamins and supplements

Summer time is rolling in and so is the heat. But, that doesn’t stop you dedicated Bulugans from getting in your daily workout! Here are a few drinks to help you keep cool before, during and after your workout.

 

Before:
Fitmixer Amino: Not only does this pre-workout carry the energy to get you moving on your workout but also contains a full amino blend to help prevent muscle breakdown before and during a workout as well as promote recovery post workout. Though, that’s not what makes Fitmixer the perfect summer quencher. Simply put, Fitmixer Amino is delicious! It also mixes very easily with water (so no gross clumps.) Try adding some ice to it for a delicious pre-workout glass of fruit punch.

During:
GU Brew: During exercise we sweat between 27 – 47 oz per hour! When we sweat, we lose more than just water. During exercise our body depletes on sodium, chloride and potassium, also known as electrolytes. This loss coupled with only drinking water can lead to low sodium concentration. When this happens your body will begin pulling electrolytes from its cells to create a balance. This can lead to cramping, dizziness and nausea. The key to feeling and performing your best is to create a balance within your body. GU Brew mixes into any standard water bottle and has the right amount of electrolytes to keep your body replenished and balanced. Make it a half hour before exercise and cool it in the fridge for an extra refreshing workout drink.

After:
PowerICE: While it isn’t exactly a “drink,” this cold popsicle is packed with more electrolytes to replenish your body while cooling it from within. This delicious treat has your body feeling back to normal FAST.

Total Soy: Throw Total Soy meal replacement shake into a blender with a little bit of water (or skim milk) and a few ice cubes to create a cold smoothie packed with protein and vitamins.  It will fill you back up and keep you full until your next meal!
