1. Pre-workout: Energize.
Choose a natural pre-workout that won't give you the jitters.
Maté and Camellia sinensis tea (like Pu Erh and Green Tea) give you the benefits of caffeine (like increased mental clarity and improved mood) without over-stimulating the nervous system. These teas also support digestion, metabolism, muscle recovery, and overall wellness. Drinking any of these teas will help elevate your energy levels to set you up for a successful workout.

2. During workout: Hydrate.
Stay hydrated and replenish electrolytes while you sweat.
Replenishing electrolytes and keeping your body hydrated throughout your workout is super important!
Electrolytes are essential minerals such as sodium, potassium, and chloride, and are present in all our body fluids. They are also called ions because they carry an electric charge! ⚡ ️We end up losing these salts when we sweat, and drinking hibiscus tea can help maintain and replenish them. So next time, skip the sports drink and opt for the electrolytes nature provides. 🌺

Have you ever made a hibiscus tea sports drink? It's pretty easy! Just combine...
- about 2 cups of hibiscus or fruit tea
- fresh squeezed citrus to taste; orange, lemon or lime all pair beautifully with hibiscus
- honey to taste
- a pinch of sea salt; we like to use our Hawaiian Black Lava Sea Salt, which is enriched with activated charcoal
Serve chilled and enjoy during your workout. 🌺 🧊 ✨
3. Post workout: Recover.
Choose nutrients to boost recovery and reduce inflammation.
Our Superfood Golden Milk is the best alternative or additive to a protein shake! It is anti-inflammatory, which will help you quickly recover after a hard workout, and it is packed with wellness-boosting nutrients.
