It’s super important to stay well hydrated and take the nutritional supplements that your body needs before, during and after any strenuous activity, like running, strength training or playing a sport. As we start sweating our body starts losing water and minerals to help regulate our body temperature. Electrolytes are vital for health and survival; lacking on vital minerals can get you dehydrated, tired and/or sick. Taking the right supplements will help you focus, concentrate, will give you energy, resulting in a better performance that will help you achieve your goals.

Sometimes you learn the hard way and not having all the facts and can affect you badly. I started relying in coffee to give me the energy that I was lacking. For what I was seeing my coworkers and family would take coffee everyday to feel better. Coffee started giving me horrible side effects; dizziness, nausea, headaches. I would get sick, and worst of all I started having heart palpitations; it was horrible.

As I started taking my health more seriously and started taking control of my nutrition, I started working out almost everyday and I really needed something to help me with alertness, to keep me hydrated, and that would give me that extra push during the day so I would feel good during my workout routine, but without the crazy side effects. I was very, very hesitant to try anything. About 2 years ago I tried plant based energy and hydration supplements and it worked!

Before my workout I take NOW® Sports Effer-Energy tropical punch dissolvable tablet. I dissolve one tablet into 16oz. of ice water and drink it about 15-20 minutes before I start my run or my workout {it takes about 5 minutes for the tablet to dissolve completerly}. NOW® Sports Effer-Energy gives me clarity, I feel focus, I feel ready with no side effects, no gibberish. I love this flavor, tastes so good, fruity and not overly sweet, plus it’s super refreshing, I love it!

Helps me focus and it delays muscle fatigue during exercise.

During my workout and/or run I take NOW® Sports Effer-Hydrate with electrolytes, like magnesium, sodium, calcium and potassium {loving all the flavors, but my favorite is mixed berry}. I dissolve one tablet into 16oz of ice water 5 minutes before I start. Helps me with my performance while working out by maintaining hydration, by improving fluidity of muscle contractions, by increasing heart’s efficiency, improves endurance and boots mental clarity. And gets me ready for next day’s workout, I workout 5-6 days a week including strength training, core, run, walks, yoga, so I do take my supplements everyday. Give it a try!
