Description
OUR TAKE
CLIF SHOT Electrolyte Drink Mix is one of the lighter sports drink you'll find on the market at 4% carbohydrate concentration instead of the typical 6-8%. As a result, it has a less sweet and more refreshing taste than most other drinks. Its lower carbohydrate concentration also minimizes GI issues (gut issues like feeling bloated) and promotes quicker absorption. If you find other drinks hard to digest or too sweet, give this drink a try. It's 90% organic and uses 2 sources of carbs (Organic Glucose and Organic Dried Cane Syrup). If you're used to consuming 200+ calories/hr, remember that at Clif's recommended concentration, you'll get only 80 calories per 16 oz of fluid so you may need to supplement your calorie intake with more solid foods like gels, chews or bars (or food made in your own kitchen). We consider this more of a hydration drink than a tradition sports drink that contains more calories.

FAQ
When should I use CLIF SHOT Electrolyte Hydration Drink Mix, and how much should I consume?
CLIF SHOT Electrolyte Hydration Drink Mix is crafted to help athletes stay hydrated during activity. The quantity consumed very much depends on the intensity and duration of activity, as well as the external conditions such as wind and heat. For instance if you’re doing an easy 60-minute run or ride on flat roads in cool temperatures, one bottle (16oz) may be plenty. But if you’re in the middle of a 5-hour ride or an extended run in 85+ degree weather with lots of climbing, then we’d typically recommend drinking 16oz – 24oz every hour. Hydration needs, however, are determined by an individual athlete’s physical activity, duration of activity, and sweat rate. Ultimately it’s best for the athlete to experiment and find out how his/her total consumption corresponds with performance.

How is CLIF SHOT Electrolyte Hydration Drink Mix different from other sports drinks on the market?
CLIF SHOT Electrolyte Hydration Drink Mix offers streamlined nutrition and is made with 90% organic ingredients.

CLIF SHOT Electrolyte Hydration Drink Mix combines sodium and a 4% multiple source carbohydrate solution to aid in fluid absorption and retention. Team CLIF Bar Athletes have found that reducing a carbohydrate solution from 8% to 4% helps to prevent GI distress and the sensation of “sloshing in the stomach.”

The CLIF SHOT approach to performance nutrition is to provide enough carbohydrate and sodium during activity for effective hydration. A 4% multiple source carbohydrate solution can optimize gastric emptying while maintaining carbohydrates’ positive effects on rehydration. The 4% solution allows for lower carbohydrate concentration as compared to the 6-8% solution.

CLIF SHOT Electrolyte Hydration Drink Mix is less sweet and lighter tasting compared to other sports drinks. Fewer carbohydrates and less sugar allow you to continue drinking bottle after bottle during long athletic outings.

What form of sodium is in the CLIF SHOT Electrolyte Hydration Drink Mix?
We use sodium chloride because chloride is lost through sweat and recommended in the IOM (reference #1) report for sports drinks also endorsed by ASCM.

Why is CLIF SHOT Electrolyte Hydration Drink Mix formulated to be a 4% carbohydrate solution?
CLIF SHOT Electrolyte Hydration Drink Mix combines sodium and other electrolytes with a 4% multiple source carbohydrate solution to aid in fluid transport, absorption and retention (reference #2 and #3). CLIF SHOT Electrolyte Drink Mix is crafted to be a 4% multiple source carbohydrate solution.

Can I adjust the concentration of CLIF SHOT Electrolyte Hydration Drink Mix away from the recommendation on the package?
The current sports science and Team CLIF Bar athletes’ experiences suggest that a 3-4% carbohydrate solution provides effective hydration (reference #3). When mixed according to instructions CLIF SHOT Electrolyte Hydration yields a 4% solution. Adding a small amount of extra water will dilute the concentration (and overall flavor), but keep the drink within the 3-4% range. You can experiment with different concentrations to find out what works best for you. The concentration of the solution can be increased by adding more hydration mix to the same amount of water. In some individuals, a higher carbohydrate solution may delay gastric emptying and therefore overall hydration (reference #2).

Why aren’t there any vitamins in CLIF SHOT Electrolyte Hydration Drink Mix?
The primary purpose of CLIF SHOT Electrolyte Hydration Drink Mix is to deliver what an athlete needs and can actually use during his/her training and racing: carbohydrate, fluid, and electrolytes. While vitamins such as A, C, and E are critical to daily well-being, studies continually show that there is no performance benefit to athletes by consuming these vitamins as supplements if they are eating a balanced diet (reference #1).

Are there any artificial flavors in CLIF SHOT Hydration Drink Mix?
No.

Is CLIF SHOT Electrolyte Hydration Drink Mix kosher?
Yes. CLIF SHOT Electrolyte Replacement Drink is certified kosher by Orthodox Union (OU).

Is CLIF SHOT Electrolyte Hydration Drink Mix vegan-friendly?
CLIF SHOT Electrolyte Replacement Drink contains no animal-based ingredients so it is vegan-friendly.

Does CLIF SHOT Electrolyte Hydration Drink Mix contain any common food allergens such as dairy, nuts, wheat, etc.?
No
