What is BODYARMOR?I'm not all that active, I'll admit this. It's not that I don't WANT to be, but the CP prevents a LOT of it.
• BODYARMOR is a natural sports drink with more potassium packed electrolytes, vitamins and coconut water. It is low in sodium and contains NOTHING ARTIFICIAL – unlike other sports drinks on the market. It’s a GREAT choice for young athletes especially, who don’t need all the extra sodium in their diets or the artificial ingredients that come from drinking other sports drinks on the market.
• BODYARMOR comes in 7-great tasting flavors: fruit punch, orange mango, strawberry banana, tropical punch, lemon lime, mixed berry and grape
• Many of today’s top athletes choose BODYARMOR as their sports drink of choice, including: Mike Trout, Andrew Luck, James Harden, Buster Posey, Rob Gronkowski, Kevin Love, Richard Sherman, Skylar Diggins and Sydney LeRoux
But, when I am active, I get tired very easily and my muscles are VERY sore. Water helps rehydrate me, but it does nothing for the soreness.
Enter BODYARMOR SuperDrink.

From R to L: Fruit Punch, Strawberry Banana, Orange Mango, Tropical Punch, Mixed Berry, Lemon Lime
Let's look at each flavor.
Kinda heavy on the 'fake cherry' scent, but tastes like Hi-C fruit punch. Very yummy. Probably my favorite of the bunch.
Tasted like a thinned-down smoothie or yogurt. Really tasted the strawberry in this. Would have liked more banana flavoring to this one.
Reminded me of the California-Style Sunny D mixed with a Mango Madness Snapple. Very 'citrusy.'
Another one that was heavy on the 'fake cherry' scent, but had the taste of Hawaiian Punch. As a mutter of fact, I called this 'Hawaiian Punch for grown ups.'
Honestly, I did NOT like this one at all. Tasted like a 'flat' Mixed Berry wine cooler. I couldn't drink this fast enough, just to get rid of it once opened.
Tasted like a Lemon-Lime Gatorade or a flat Sprite without the nasty 'flat soda' aftertaste. This was my 2nd favorite of the bunch.
What I really liked about these is even though they are made with coconut water, you can't really taste the coconut water flavor in them. I've tried coconut water before and really didn't like it. So, I was honestly skeptical on how I would like these. Luckily, The other flavors blend with each other to cover the coconut water flavor.
I also like the fact that this has potassium and vitamins in it. Having CP, I try to keep my potassium level up, because my legs do not hurt as bad when I eat or drink things with high potassium content. I can drink a bottle of this in place of a banana and still get my potassium. With these drinks having 200% of the B vitamins (B3, B5, B6, B9 & B12) and 100% of Vitamins A, C & E, I'm confident knowing these drinks are doing me more good than harm.
