My husband is not a workout type person. But he is a work out in the yard type person. See what I did there? That is a literary device known as a homonym. Or is it synonym? Antonym? I really just do not remember, it is something that ends in “nym?”
Whatever. Where was I? Oh yeah. The hubby.
He does not exercise, so he does not drink a whole bunch of fancy sports drinks in order to replenish his electrolytes. But he does do a lot of yard work. Some time I will have to show you the three planter boxes he built into the side of the hill that passes for my back yard (btw, Yard Crashers, please come to my house). Our yard is terrible, so it requires a lot of work just to make it look halfway decent.
Terrible topsoil means terrible grass. Lots of weeds. A horrible hill.
I would bet that you are asking where I’m going with this right now…I will tell you. Lots of yard work and summer means a sweaty husband. Sweaty husband means dehydrated husband. Dehydrated husband means heat stroke, and then who is going to fix all the broken stuff? Did I mention I have a four year-old? That means a lot of broken stuff. I NEED someone who can fix stuff. It sure is not going to be me, I am not even able to fix a broken cookie (just kidding, I know the only way to fix a broken cookie is to eat it). But seriously, he has to stick around to fix stuff. There is no way I can haul him off to the hospital every other minute just because he is thirsty.
So what is the solution? BODYARMOR SuperDrink. The hubby loves this stuff. Firstly it is made from Coconut water. Have I mentioned the hubby is a coconut fanatic? Second it tastes great. The hubby hates the taste of other sports drinks (we won’t name names). Third, unlike soda or plain water, it actually does a good job of quenching his thirst when he is digging/building/mowing/weeding out in the yard on a hot day. Score. No heat stroke and a fixed shelf in the laundry room all thanks to BODYARMOR.
BUT … WHAT IS BODYARMOR SuperDrink?
BODYARMOR is a new premium sports drink that contains more electrolytes than other leading sports drinks (the folks that we decided not to mention above!). SuperDrink is made from coconut water and vitamins, is low in sodium and high in potassium, and contains NO artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners.
It is all good and well that I was able to turn my husband onto a sports drink but my daughter is often a completely different story. As mentioned above, she is four. She is also constantly on the move, is obsessed with singing and dancing, recently fell in love with playing soccer (thanks to her cousin), and if we would let her, she would spend hours upon hours outside running all over the place to play with the neighborhood kids. All of that is absolutely fantastic but she is also extremely picky when it comes to what she is willing to eat and drink.
The box of BODYARMOR SuperDrink that we received for testing contained the 6 flavors of SuperDrink that the company currently offers; Fruit Punch, Tropical Fruit, Strawberry Banana, Mixed Berry, Orange Mango, and Grape. They all sounded absolutely delicious to me but my little one was a little uncertain about it because she has a limited list of things that she is willing to drink. However; that all changed when I showed her the bottles. I really do not know how to describe it other than saying each bottle is absolutely beautiful! The colors pop and there are vibrant pictures of the fruits contained within on each bottle. This was a serious bonus for us because nine times out of ten, our daughter will pick eating fruits over any other food. She was completely sold on the idea once I explained to her that bottle contained the fruits that she loves in a form that she is able to drink. Score one for mom; she thought this was pretty cool! She was a bit hesitant over the Orange Mango but that is just because mango is not a flavor that she is well acquainted with. Her favorite was the Fruit Punch which really did not shock me but overall she loves her new “fruities” (her word, not mine).
Let me just say, the fact that my picky eater, 4 year-old enjoys a sports drink should say something. Each bottle truly represents the flavor that it advertises and is not overpowering or icky sweet.
I recommend that you introduce the little athlete, runner, fitness fan, or movers in all areas of activity (including the husband that loves yard work) to BODYARMOR SuperDrink! They taste great and are better for you than other leading sports drinks.
Still not sure? Please, feel free to not take my word for it. Many top, professional athletes love BODYARMOR too. To just name a few, James Harden, Richard Sherman, Buster Posey, Kevin Love, and Sydney Leroux. Did I mention that Kobe Bryant is a major brand investor?
So what are you waiting for?
