Running in South Florida means I pay extra close attention to hydration year round. And, during summer months, hydrating for training runs usually means doubling my water consumption, while also adding in electrolytes.
Sweat pours out during and after runs so much so it feels like I’m that cartoon character with holes all over my body and its straight in and out. Staying properly hydrated also means finding supplements to assist. I had the opportunity to try out the Science in Sport Go Hydro tabs over the past couple months.
I received four tubes (20 tabs in each) in three flavors to test. There are several supplements out there, but none are created equal. Science in Sport focuses on quality and performance, and for them that means fitting into a space that is driven by athletes who have extremely detailed diets and depend on the products they put in their bodies. Even a trace of a banned substance can sideline them, therefore they need a product that is clean and performs. Science in Sport hits both.
The three flavors I received for the trial are Lemon, Pineapple Mango, and Cola. I’m a traditionalist when it comes to sports drinks, so it came as no surprise that Lemon was my favorite. What I enjoyed about the drink is that it didn’t leave an aftertaste in my mouth, or create a feeling that I still needed to quench my thirst when I was done.
According to the label, you are supposed to consume three to four hours before a training. That is so the hydration and electrolytes can kick in. Occasionally, I also consumed a drink a few hours a particularly hard long run to replenish my stores.
The price point for the Go Hydro tabs is a fair $11.99. A hydro pack of four tubes is $39.99. The company also offers gels and protein powders. For a limited time you can enjoy 20% your purchase with code BIBRAVE20.
