Luna Sport Electrolyte Splash Lime-ade
Luna Sport Electrolyte Splash Drink Mix by Clif Bar
has the right amount of carbs and electrolytes to fuel your workout and keep you hydrated, plus the vitamins and minerals you need. Luna Sport Electrolyte Splash is the first women's organic sports drink. Created to meet the specific needs of women athletes, Luna Sports products take into consideration things women need like folic acid, calcium, iron, B vitamins and antioxidant vitamins A, C & E. Q: When and why should I use the Electrolyte Splash? A:
Electrolyte Splash is best consumed DURING activity. Consuming carbohydrates during activity enhances performance by providing a continuous supply of carbohydrate to working muscles. Your body stores a limited amount of carbohydrates and the harder you go, the faster you burn those carbohydrates. When you burn through the last of these stored carbohydrates, you run out of energy. By consuming carbohydrate during activity you will increase the length of time you can go. Drinking Electrolyte Splash is also a good way of staying hydrated. It contains both carbohydrate and sodium, two key ingredients to absorbing fluid and maintaining hydration during exercise. Q: How much should I drink? A:
The quantity consumed very much depends on the intensity and duration of activity as well as the external conditions such as wind and heat. For instance if you're doing an easy 90 minute ride on flat roads in cool temperatures, one bottle may be plenty. But if you're in the middle of a 5 hour ride in 85+ degree weather with lots of climbing, then we'd recommend drinking 16oz every 30 minutes. Ultimately it's best for you to experiment and find out how your total consumption corresponds with performance. Q: How is LUNA Sport Electrolyte Splash different from other sports drinks on the market? A:
Electrolyte Splash is the first organic women's sports drink. It is certified Organic by Quality Assurance International (QAI) and contains 80% Organic Ingredients. No other sports drinks on the market use organic material in their products. Electrolyte Splash tastes great and keeps you coming back for more. We designed it with intentionally high levels of sodium and tartness, so that it would quench your thirst, and then subtly prime your thirst mechanism. That way you keep drinking and stay hydrated. Electrolyte Splash contains 80 calories per 16-ounce serving — that's only 80 calories per water bottle. There are no artificial sweeteners or colors, which are often times used in low calorie drinks. Electrolyte Splash contains vitamins & minerals women athletes tend to be deficient in, such as Iron, Calcium, Folic Acid, and vitamins A, C & E. It also includes energizing B vitamins like Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin and B6 and B12. LUNA Sport Electrolyte Splash uses a high level of recyclable materials in its packaging. Q: What is the primary difference b/t LUNA Electrolyte Splash and Clif SHOT Electrolyte? A:
In developing the LUNA Sport line of products, our intention was to give women athletes various options for how many calories they take in and how. With LUNA Sport Electrolyte Splash, we offer an 80-calorie sports drink that will primarily keep you hydrated and replace the electrolytes you lose through sweat. The carbohydrate level is enough to keep you going and depending on the duration of your workout, it might be just the right amount. However, for longer or more intense training, you may need to ingest more calories/carbohydrates to keep energized. Because sports drinks on the market today were not d:" ": primary different between Clif SHOT Electrolyte and LUNA Sport Electrolyte is the calories — LUNA Sport Electrolyte is 80 calories per 16 ounces vs. Clif SHOT Electrolyte which is 160 calories per 16 ounces. In addition to that, LUNA Sport Electrolyte contains key vitamins and minerals that women athletes are often time deficient in. Q: Can I adjust the concentration of LUNA Sport Electrolyte Splash away from what is recommended on the packet or canister? A:
Think of our recommendation as a starting point. The mixing chart on our label will yield a 4% carbohydrate solution, and will provide 80 calories per 16 ounce serving. Despite this, everyone is not the same — between our different body sizes and training goals, some of us want more calories than others. Some will prefer a stronger blend of product and will function quite well on it, while others will need a more dilute solution to keep their stomachs happy. Experiment with different concentrations to find out what works best for you.
Enjoy during activity. Mix contents of packet with 16 oz. of cold water shake well. Consume every 30-60 minutes.
