About the company

In early summer of 1965, a University of Florida assistant coach sat down with a team of university physicians and asked them to determine why so many of his players were being affected by heat and heat related illnesses.

The researchers — Dr. Robert Cade, Dr. Dana Shires, Dr. H. James Free and Dr. Alejandro de Quesada — soon discovered two key factors that were causing the Gator players to 'wilt': the fluids and electrolytes the players lost through sweat were not being replaced, and the large amounts of carbohydrates the players' bodies used for energy were not being replenished.

The researchers then took their findings into the lab, and scientifically formulated a new, precisely balanced carbohydrate-electrolyte beverage that would adequately replace the key components lost by Gator players through sweating and exercise. They called their concoction ‘Gatorade'. Read More

Sports Spotlight: Gatorade Carb Energy Drink

Endurance Carb Energy Drink is a liquid blend of carbs and B-vitamins that’s formulated to fuel muscles so you’re ready to take down the miles ahead. Drink within an hour of training or racing.

Endurance training and racing forces the body to burn through large amounts of carbohydrate. When levels drop low enough, your muscles rely on fat as an energy source. Because it takes more time to break down fat, muscles won't be able to perform at the same intensity, and your pace will eventually slow down.

Sports Spotlight: Gatorade G2 Low Calorie Thirst Quencher Powder

 

 

 

When mixed with water, G2 Powder transforms into a lean, mean hydrating machine. Utilizing the same electrolyte formula found in Original Gatorade, it goes to work with less than half the carbs and calories of its predecessor.

You lose a lot more than water when you sweat, including critical electrolytes - like sodium and potassium - that help your brain communicate with muscles and regulate your body's fluid balance. Significant losses in fluids and electrolytes can negatively impact performance, especially during long bouts of training.

Not only do you lose water and electrolytes in sweat, but you also burn through carbs rapidly. Because carbs are the best fuel for muscles, replacing them throughout training is essential to performance. G2 has less than half the calories of Original Gatorade.

Drink Mix Spotlight: Gatorade Gatorlytes

 

 

A special five-electrolyte blend of sodium, potassium, magnesium, chloride and calcium created for salty sweaters and cramp-prone athletes. Mix one packet with a 20-oz bottle of Gatorade Thirst Quencher.

It's vital for every athlete to replace sodium that's lost in sweat, but for some it's an even bigger deal. Take a look at your shirt or hat after your next workout. If there are white sweat marks, it's time to pay closer attention to what you're sweating out. Losing too much sodium and fluid can really slow you down, delaying muscle responses and reaction times.

The second most abundant electrolyte lost in sweat, potassium regulates fluid distribution throughout the body and aids in nerve and muscle function.

When training for long periods of time, you also sweat out chloride, magnesium and calcium. Replacing all five electrolytes goes a long way in keeping things running smoothly.

Company Spotlight: Tu Me Turmeric Infused Sports Drink

 

 
If you’ve never been to the tropical forests of South East Asia, don’t worry. We have. Many times. And, lucky for all you athletes, and health conscious folks, we’ve brought back the ancient healing herb turmeric to develop our main ingredient in Tu Me waters: TurmericXtract.

Turmeric grows wild in the forests of South and Southeast Asia, and it’s one of the key ingredients in many native dishes. It has been used for thousands of years as an herbal remedy, primarily for its anti-inflammatory properties, is rich in vitamins, Antioxidants, and Phyto-Nutrients. The golden herb infused in all Tu Me beverages, is now being recognized in the Western world for its magical properties, more and more research is discovering the significant health benefits of this golden herb.

About the company
The old adage “necessity is the Mother of invention” is appropriately applied to the birth of Tu Me Turmeric Infused water.  What drove us to start Tu Me, falls back on our innate desire to help others, and we did not have to go very far to reach out to those in need.   Having grown-up in South East Asia, Nasir was familiar with the practice of incorporating healing herbs into his daily routine—be it the amazing curry dishes that his mother would lovingly prepare daily, or the homemade turmeric paste she would apply to his boyhood cuts and scrapes.  The recollection of this tradition shed illumination when his daughter complained of exercise-induced inflammation.  His daughter Shaina had a passion for sports and was a collegiate and professional basketball player. But all the playing took a toll on her body and she was not happy that in order to ease her pain and stiffness she had to rely on conventional non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, which cause irritation to the stomach as well as possibly causing other harmful effects to her body.<

 

 

So we thought, why can’t there be an easier, low-calorie way to get turmeric’s known healing powers into your daily diet?  It came to us- turmeric infused water!  We began experimenting with ways to eliminate the bitter taste of of turmeric and establish curcumin potency. Hundreds of gallons later, we took their recipe to, and joined forces with a world-renown food chemist and arrived at the cutting edge formulation of Tu Me Water.

Drink Spotlight: Pickle Juice Sport Drink

 

 

Gatorade isn't the only greenish drink that athletes crave. A new study indicates that pickle brine could help athletes when they need it most.

Researchers say the juice at the bottom of a pickle jar is more effective at staving off crippling muscle cramps than water.

To prove the salty premise long believed by some trainers and serious athletes, scientists induced toe cramps in male college students after forcing the subjects to bike to the point of mild dehydration. The average cramp lasted about two minutes and 30 seconds.

The Pickle Juice Company
A new study has revealed that pickle brine might be more effective than sports drinks at treating muscle cramps, confirming a longstanding assumption in the sports world. Football players, cyclists and triathletes have been sipping dill-flavored drinks, including bottles of The Pickle Juice Company, for years.

Those who downed the brine stopped complaining of cramping within 85 seconds -- about 37 percent faster than the water drinkers and 45 percent faster than when they didn't drink anything at all.

Dr. Kevin Miller, the lead author of the study, told the Times he thinks pickle brine helps cure cramps because it triggers a nerve reaction.

In fact, pickle brine seemed to ease cramp pains so quickly that he doubts it even had time to leave athletes' stomaches before it started to work.

Instead, Miller and the other researchers argued that pickle juice might spark some kind of "neurally mediated reflex" that helps give the right cues to misfiring muscles, which are thought to cause cramps.

Though the study offers some concrete proof that pickle juice can quickly treat muscle cramps, the salty drink is still just a drop in the ocean at major sporting events compared to water and other sports drinks
