HEED (High Energy Electrolyte Drink) is a vegan high-energy sports drink with electrolytes that contains complex carbohydrates (such as Maltodextrine), providing steady and reliable energy. Its balanced electrolyte profile reduces cramps, and its essential nutrients balance your blood sugar levels, reduce lactic acid build-up, and ensure long-lasting energy.
HEED can be your isotonic sports drink during every high-intensity performance/training where you can take a water bottle or flask.
As stated above, there are several alternatives to sports drinks. Always give priority to your favourite way to replenish energies!
HEED - Isotonic Sports Drink - Benefits
Consistent, long-lasting energy thanks to a gluten-free and maltodextrin-rich formula.
Prevent cramps by satisfying your mineral requirements with its full-spectrum electrolyte profile.
Avoid risks of stomach distress thanks to the absence of citric acid.
Boosts oral health as it contains xylitol as a sweetener.
HEED is an isotonic sports drink with a subtle taste. Its gluten-free and maltodextrin-rich formula goes down easily and supplies you with consistent, long-lasting energy. It gives you the electrolytes you need to push the pace.
“Are sports drinks bad for you?”
HEED is the negative answer to the previous question: it is a sports drink with no sugars (refined). Instead, it contains the sweeteners stevia and xylitol (good for your oral health). The full-spectrum, amino acid-chelated electrolyte profile helps satisfy your body's mineral requirements and prevents cramps. The absence of citric acid reduces the risks of stomach pain. L-carnosine and chromium polynicotinate help to buffer lactic acid and support stable blood sugar levels.

If using more than one fuel, be sure to combine all of the calories from all of the products consumed to reach a correct total hourly intake.
You might want to mix different fuels. When you do that, ensure you get the correct amount of calories. Say you weigh between 55-70 kg. That means you need around 100-150 kcal per hour. If you want to mix Energy Gel with HEED, for example, you can take 80 calories from the Energy Gel, and 40 from HEED. When you mix, don’t go over your recommended calories per hour. Too many calories can hurt your stomach.

Maltodextrin – A high-glycemic index (GI) complex carbohydrate, ideal for providing fast-acting, long-lasting energy during exercise and for replenishing the body’s glycogen stores after exercise.
Xylitol – This natural sweetener is found in a variety of fibrous fruits and vegetables. It promotes oral health, as it does not ferment and support the acid-producing bacteria that cause tooth decay. NOTE: It is believed that xylitol is unsafe for consumption by dogs; therefore, we do not recommend you feed your dog any xylitol-containing products, including HEED or Recoverite.
Full-spectrum electrolyte profile – The complete profile of sodium, chloride, calcium, magnesium, and potassium helps maintain performance of many important bodily functions during exercise, while also helping protect against muscle cramping.
L-Carnosine – One of the most versatile and beneficial nutrients available. It buffers lactic acid during exercise and offers antioxidant support.
Glycine – This amino acid is beneficial for aiding with muscle tissue repair, protecting collagen in joints, and reducing joint pain. Additionally, glycine has a naturally sweet taste, contributing to HEED’s delicious flavor.
L-Tyrosine – Aids in the functioning of the adrenal, pituitary, and thyroid glands, which are responsible for the production and regulation of numerous key hormones. This contributes to increased performance levels and decreased recovery time.
Manganese – This trace mineral is necessary for optimal muscle cell enzyme reactions and for the conversion of fatty acids and protein into energy.
Chromemate® brand chromium polynicotinate – This trace mineral helps regulate blood sugar and plays a vital role in the synthesis of glucose, fatty acids, and amino acids.
