It is important to stay hydrated at all times, as even a small percentage drop in fluid levels can have dramatic effects upon your running performance, leaving you feeling tired and lifeless. It is best to replace fluid both during and as quickly as possible after exercise, so no matter where you are, always have a water bottle to hand, filled with your favourite sports drink.
High5 Waterbottle: These bottles are very cheap, made of plastic with a re-sealable cap, often able to hold 750ml of liquid. Some are shaped to be particularly convenient for carrying during a run.
Zero Electrolyte Tabs: ZERO is the new SUGAR FREE electrolyte drink from High5; it’s virtually calorie free (less than 1 Cal per 500ml) and has a light refreshing taste. ZERO is naturally free from preservatives, allergens, artificial colours and flavours*. Researchers have also found that simply drinking ZERO instead of a normal carbohydrate sport drink 22 participants on average burn 41% more fat during exercise. Independently tested; Faculty of Biomedical and Life Sciences, University of Glasgow. ZERO is easy to use, drop a tablet in your bottle and it quickly dissolves in water to give you a delicious, refreshing, advanced electrolyte drink with added magnesium. The small recyclable tube contains ZERO CHERRY-ORANGE: CHERRY-ORANGE FLAVOUR ELECTROLYTE DRINK TABLET.

CRAMP - The American College of Sports Nutrition state that “Skeletal muscle cramps are associated with dehydration, electrolyte deficits, and muscle fatigue”. ZERO can be an essential part of your anti cramp strategy as it contains key electrolytes; sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium. ZERO is perfect for runners, cyclists, hikers, the gym, pro athletes, footballers, racket sports or anyone who wants to stay active and hydrated.
Tips - For ultra light no clutter cycling, just wrap one or two individual tablets in cling film or aluminium foil and slip them in your jersey. ZERO has a very light taste, for normal use mix one tablet per 750ml of water. If you are using a bladder system mix 2 tablets per 1 1/2 litre. If you like your drink stronger or require the extra electrolytes, simply mix 2 tablets per 750ml bottle. The tablets are scored to allow for an easy break.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great product
great taste throughout all flavours, but I'm sure everyone has a fav. Love how I don't have to think about how much I have to measure, chuck it in the bottle and ready to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Amazing value - innacurate description
Description states "10 tablets per tube", but actually has 20 per tube, making 40 in total.
5 Stars for the product though
Fix the product description though please CRC, it's a bit confusing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous I can't see any saving!!
So where's the saving? The description says 10 tablets per tube so a total of 20 tablets but you can buy a tube of 20 tablets for £5.99 from wiggle at the mo so basically you're paying for the rubbish bottle you get with it. I've got loads of these bottles from buying previous deals and believe me they all leak, IMO you're better off with an old lucozade bottle!

1) фляга большая - 750 мл. Клапан пластиковый, но открывается и закрывается легко. Никакой химией не пахнет, вкус воды\напитка не портит.
2) таблетки брал ягодные Berries, если заряжать по одной на флягу то вкус легкий не насыщенный. Освежает, две на флягу пока еще не пробовал, думаю что не стоит - не компот же пьешь. Про эффективность ничего не скажу, брал из-за фляжки и чтобы воду просто не гонять.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous No da sed
Lo mejor, que no da sed ninguna y el sabor es tan ligero que difícilmente puede llegar a resultar desagradable. Además lo de que venga en pastillas lo hace muy práctico.
Sobre si que hidrata o no, aún no lo he probado con tiempo cálido.
Lo que no entiendo es que salga más barato comprarlo con bidón que comprarlo solo... Misterios del marketing

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Great tasting tablets, poor quality bottle
The tablets taste great and are refreshing ( i got berry flavour, really nice ), but the bottle must be the worst I've ever used. The nozzle keeps dropping down while drinking. Just really flimsy. Still, good deal on the tabs.
