Original Ginger Flavour Sports Drink 1.4kg Mix Tub (40 servings)

Original Ginger Flavour Sports Drink 1.4kg Mix Tub (40 servings)

Active Root is a sports drink that aims to optimise fuelling and hydration. It delivers the benefits of natural root ginger – an ingredient that helps keep the stomach settled during exercise.*

We asked for customer feedback and we’ve used that to improve the original product. Each serving now has more electrolytes, is faster dissolving and easier pouring, but still has the same great natural taste.

A 1.4kg tub contains 40 servings of 35g. That makes Active Root good value as a way to keep hydrated during exercise.

Active Root enhances performance in three ways – BALANCE, FUEL and HYDRATION.

BALANCE – The ginger in the product eases stomach discomfort before, during and after exercise (200mg p/s)

FUEL - Natural unbleached cane sugar is a source of clean carbohydrate fuel (32g p/s)

HYDRATION – Natural sea salt helps replace electrolytes lost in sweat (400mg p/s)

The Performance Benefits

BALANCE reduces symptoms of nausea and stomach discomfort. That means it’s easier to take on FUEL, making HYDRATION more effective. You’ll feel better and perform better. The customer reviews from regular users of Active Root confirm the benefits.

Natural elements, including ginger, are essential for a settled stomach and optimum performance. We use unadulterated whole ingredients and no chemicals or artificial preservatives to ensure Active Root works in harmony with your body, helping you feel great.

All our products are gluten-free, dairy-free and suitable for vegans.


Cane sugar blend (Natural disaccharide, 50%, Glucose, 50% Fructose), Citric Acid, Sea Salt, Ginger Root Extract

Please note, due to the natural ingredients in Active Root it is perfectly normal to find occasional small dark sugar molasses and particles of ginger fibre. When shaken the particles will mostly dissolve into your drink.

We found active root at last year's Long Course Weekend. I don't normally get things at expos, but the fox logo draw us in. The fact it taste great as well is an added bonus. Doesn't make you feel queasy like other drinks, and doesn't have that chemical taste either.

I do a lot of long distance running (ultramarathons) and I have been troubled over the years with trying to find sports nutrition and hydration products that are kind to the GI system. I am gluten and lactose intolerant and I have a systemic inflammatory disease which also affects my gut. Active Root provides me with a good source of energy supplementation, it settles my stomach and I have not had any issues since I started using it. I have since recommended this product to several other runners who have started using it very successfully. The tubs are great for filling bottles at the start of the race and the sachets are easy to carry with you to top up on the go. My favourite flavours are the Ginger and the Ginger and Green Tea. Both very palatable. I would not consider using anything else now as it works so well for me.

I’ve recently started training again and active root has been excellent - it replaces using my old electrolyte drinks and energy gels in one. And it tastes really good!

I love active root! The original ginger settles my stomach of nerves before races and keeps me fueled during them. I've used it to prevent sea sickness and my diabetic other half uses it as a quick boost when his blood sugar drops.

It's not too sweet, too strong, or too sickly. Just perfect.

Fantastic product, gels make me sick so started using this and it's bang on! Keeps me up and running literally ????
