I recently had the opportunity to review the super drink, BODYARMOR sports drink. When this promotion came about I was especially interested. As I’ve written before, Piper trains as a dancer for 15-20 hours each week. Keeping her hydrated is a huge concern. Filling her with sugar drinks is not an option, but sometimes she prefers more than just water!
BODYARMOR is a natural sports drink. As a mom and a shopper, I know that the word “natural” does not “natural” in my book. So often, it seems that if even a part of the drink is natural they slap the label on the bottle. BODYARMOR is packed with electrolytes, coconut water and vitamins. It is low in sodium and contains natural flavors, natural sweeteners and no artificial colors. We all know that young athletes don’t need extra sodium or artificial ingredients. These things are my fear when my daughter drinks other sports beverages on the market currently.
I took a look at the label on the fruit punch flavor of BODYARMOR, and I was pleasantly surprised. The first ingredient is water. That’s always a good sign. The second is pure cane sugar. I know that sugar gets a bad rap, but our bodies need it – and our bodies can absorb can sugar, it the other artificial sugars that cause our bodies so much harm! After that, coconut water, vegetable juice concentrate, just to name a few. Only 15mg of sodium are inside! 300mg of potassium! I think it’s also good to note that BODYARMOR is caffeine free and gluten free. Caffeine free is HUGE to me. I don’t want my kids to have it at all.
The important thing to most child athletes is taste, let’s face it! BODYARMOR comes in 8 great flavors: fruit punch, orange mango, strawberry banana, tropical punch, lemon lime, mixed berry, grape and blackout berry. The flavors are rich, but not overpowering. They don’t leave a strong aftertaste which I often hear complaints about it.
BODYARMOR is available nationwide. In my local market, you can find it at HEB, Kroger, Target, Randalls, and Brookshires. To check in your area, click here. Would you like a coupon? Click here to print one.
