Why drink BODYARMOR?

When working out, you always need to stay hydrated. It is even more important that you stay hydrated after working out. That is when your body is trying to recharge and needs fluids that can help the muscles and your body recover.

BODYARMOR has higher amounts of vitamins and potassium, but lower sodium in their drink. They also have coconut water in their drink, which has so many incredible benefits for you. The juice is naturally sweetened with pure cane sugar and natural flavors. If you are someone who hates processed sugar, then this is the drink for you. Not only is it naturally sweetened but it is colored from real fruits and vegetables.

Benefits of Before and After Working Out

Working out often and not hydrating enough causes cramping of muscles. Drinking tons and tons of water can help with this but often does not completely solve this. Other sports drinks use sodium as their key electrolyte but most people get enough sodium through their daily eating but not enough potassium. Too much sodium can cause high blood pressure.

BODYARMOR has a high level of Potassium in their drink which is a very important part of the hydration process. If you have ever eaten a banana before or after working out, you know how important Potassium is in the healing process. Potassium helps to prevent cramping due to its role in the nerve function and muscle control. Potassium can also help lower blood pressure.
