Run26 » 4 Sports Nutrition Products all Runners should be using - 3:31 pm

I’ve never been one to bring in nutrition products just to make a dollar, if we carry it in the store it’s been tested by the staff and we truly believe in it.  These days there are a lot of great running nutrition products on the market so it gets harder and harder to sort through what works and what doesn’t.  Here’s a list of four products we carry at Run26 all runners should be using.

1. Ph Strips -  Your body’s ph level will tell you if you are recovered or getting close to being overtrained.  With a simple test strip and saliva you can get a great read to where your current ph level is at and adjust your training and nutrition to get it to an optimal level.

2. E Lyte – Most runners know that electrolytes are essential to achieve optimal performance, but how do you know where your electrolyte levels are?  This great product mixes with water and has a taste indicator to let you know where your levels are.  If the water taste salty then your electrolytes are imbalanced, if the water tastes normal then your electrolytes are  balanced.

3. UCAN - UCAN is powered by SuperStarch, a healthy, natural, gluten-free innovation in carbohydrate nutrition. SuperStarch is a complex carbohydrate (derived from non-GMO corn) that uniquely stabilizes blood sugar and causes virtually no reaction from the fat-storage hormone insulin. Originally discovered for children with life-threatening energy imbalances, SuperStarch is a revolutionary fuel being used for endurance sports.

4. Electro Bytes - Electro Bytes is an electrolyte replacement product derived from Coconut Oil and Agave Syrup and chock full of electrolytes.  Besides it’s great balance of electrolytes the Coconut Oil helps reduce inflammation and acts as an antioxidant while the Agave Syrup supplies a readily available energy that is low on the glycemic index thus keeping the blood sugar levels steady.

With these four products you are sure to improve, not only your training and racing performances, but your overall health!
