Tailwind Nutrition is the place to go for electrolyte and hydration drinks. Their Endurance Fuel mix creates a mild-flavored drink that satisfied my thirst and gave me a serious energy boost. There are four different flavors; Berry was my favorite. Not only did the mix taste delicious, but the texture was smooth, unlike other chalky mixes I’ve tried. It was gentle on the stomach, too. Caffeinated options are available in certain flavors. Available online; $39 for 50 servings.
After intense physical activity, chocolate milk is my go-to drink, but oftentimes it doesn't provide the exact recovery I'm after. Tailwind's Recovery Mix, on the other hand, is packed with carbohydrates, fats, and electrolytes to replenish nutrients lost during a workout. The nine essential amino acids aid in building muscle and reducing soreness all around. Staying on theme, I tried the Chocolate mix, although it comes in three additional flavors. As the name implies, the Recovery Mix helped me recover quickly and spring to the next activity with ease. Available online; $40 for 15 servings.
