John Cox - Cyclist testimonial

"I am enquiring as to how I write a story with couple of photographs regarding my journey overcoming many years reliance on daily tablets for reflux etc by using your drink Ginger Root as my cycling drink . I've ridden 8 thousand miles so far this year and achieved many personal bests from 5 miles to 100 plus. I am over 1100 achievements on Strava for my first year of retirement. I am no spring chicken (aged 64) but am holding my own in my own way with much younger riders who help and encourage me . I actually do most of my training solo and behave on group rides! No smashing it up!! 
I first met you at Cambridge TOC which I found a very tough day and sampled a free drink after severe cramping with the finish in sight . I then bought a sample pack , listened to your good advice and help as I was really struggling and have continued using the supplement . 
I am now virtually free of taking the previous medication and wanted to express my thanks to you. I have subsequently reordered the tubs as and when. The drink has helped in many ways. A huge thank you."

Rachael Butcher - triathlete testimonial

"Because it tastes yummy, it doesn't make me feel sick like lots of other sports drinks, its vegan friendly, it doesn't contain lots of unnatural additives and its made right here in sunny Scotland! What more could you want from a sports drink?!?"

Nathan Montague - ultra running testimonial

"A natural sports drink not only replenishing energy stores and electrolytes but continuing ginger which I have personal found to help with GI issues I have experienced in training, races and life. It contains none of the nasty ingredients that give you that washing machine stomach you get after races. I can take my fuel more consistently and for longer allowing easier absorpation. I take crystallised ginger daily for its anti-inflammatory properties, I know have benefit ginger in my sports drink Actively reducing inflamation on the move."

Kate Pearson - triathlete testimonial

"I always struggled on the longer distances to fuel - I’d get a sore tummy and sick of all the food. I was struggling to find anything but messaged Active Root about their ingredients, and was overjoyed to find I could have it. And it’s perfect! I love that I can add as little or as much as I want to my water, and it doesn’t make me feel sick or give me any other nasty side effects that gels do."

Perfect for anyone who doesn't want a sweet drink but needs to keep fuelled and hydrated! 

Taste: earthy and less sweet

Additional benefits: less sweet flavour option to help avoid flavour fatigue 

- Fiona Russell - Adventure Racer Testimonial

"And there is a new flavour, Active Root Green Tea and Ginger drink. I really like this. It’s the same drink as the Original flavour but with an added touch of green tea, which gives a cooler, slightly more earthy flavour. It’s a less sweet taste and I far prefer it.

This is a better taste for the latter stages of a long training run or race when you are fed up with sweet snacks and drinks. It’s also a great taste for people who are not so keen on the flavour of ginger.

I enjoyed taking regular sips of Active Root drink during a recent race."
