How sparkling water can glam up your sweat sesh
So there I was, 13.1 miles and nearly two hours later, totally depleted. Water wasn’t going to cut it in those crucial post-race recovery hours. Chocolate milk, as delicious as it is, wasn’t either (it’s too heavy for me after a long race). I needed something more refreshing, but something that would help my tired muscles and achy joints recover FAST.
If only I’d known then about Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water!
With zero calories, no sugar and no added chemicals – but more than the daily recommended intake for calcium, magnesium and bicarbonate – Gerolsteiner is an ideal beverage to improve performance and speed up recovery.
We all know the consequences of being dehydrated – foggy brain, muscle cramps and fatigue, headache… But did you know that deficiency in some of the major minerals can cause some of the same symptoms?
Without enough calcium and magnesium – two of the most important minerals essential for health – athletic performance is hindered and recovery can take much longer. But sometimes, especially for active people, it’s difficult to hit the daily recommended intakes for vitamins and minerals each day.
With Gerolsteiner, athletes (and anyone else!) can keep themselves hydrated and at the same time meet or even surpass their needed mineral amounts. Gerolsteiner is the world’s number-one natural sparkling mineral water, but there’s so much more to it than the fact that it tastes good.
The daily recommended intake for water is 2.7 liters for women and 3.7 for men. This includes water from foods like fruit and veggies, so girls should aim to drink 1.5 – 2 liters per day and guys should aim to drink 2.5 – 3 liters per day.
By staying hydrated with Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water, athletes can ensure they meet the daily recommended intakes of calcium, magnesium and bicarbonate.
Both calcium and magnesium are important for so many reasons, like keeping your bones strong and healthy, promoting blood flow, and allowing your muscles to move. Bicarbonate is a compound that can help you perform at your peak level for longer – meaning Gerolsteiner is the perfect beverage to sip on before AND after a sweat sesh!
But Gerolsteiner isn’t just for athletes! Everyone can join in on the Gerolsteiner Sparkling Detox, taking place August 27 to August 31 – a five-day challenge designed to rehydrate, rejuvenate, and refresh your body.
