As you may have heard me mention, I try to “eat clean” most of the time — meaning I steer clear of food and drinks with artificial colors and additives. I am also for the most part sugar-free, especially with drinks; and supplements with caffeine don’t agree with me.
For these reasons, I’ve had to avoid sports drinks…until now. I recently found out about a a new sports drink company called MESTRENGTH. This product is a drink mix powder that provides athletes with a balanced blend of 5 electrolytes for complete hydration, and 5 grams of creatine for muscle recovery (not 20 grams for muscle bulk).
Since I was curious to find out more, I asked Sam Potter, CEO of Chicago-based MESTRENGTH, to explain how this new product differs from the other sports drinks on the market.
“What’s truly different about our product is that unlike most sports drinks, MESTRENGTH does not contain any calories, sugar, artificial sweeteners, artificial flavors, etc. The ingredient label is simple, straightforward and to the point – plus, the product is vegan, vegetarian and gluten free,” said Potter. “What we’ve tried to offer is the ‘cleanest’ ingredient label on a sports drink that we could come up with. If you take a look, it’s really just a balanced blend of 5 key electrolytes (most sports drinks only offer 2 or maybe 3), then a little bit of creatine to help with muscle recovery (a lot of folks report that they’re not nearly as stiff and sore after tough workouts while drinking MESTRENGTH, especially when used consistently) and finally natural, plant based, flavors and colors – Stevia is the sweetener.”
MESTRENGTH comes in single-serving packets of powder. You can add it to a water bottle, or in my case I like to add it to my iced tea. There are five flavors — orange, kiwi strawberry, lemon lime, fruit punch and grape. It is currently only available online.
