A sweaty practice or workout will partially deplete our bodies of electrolytes and water. That’s why it feels so good to have a big long drink of water after savasana or when cooling down.
But water alone isn’t actually enough to help replace the electrolytes we’ve lost in sweat and may in fact dilute our remaining electrolytes further.
What are electrolytes?
Simply, electrolytes are minerals that carry an electrical charge. They are important because they affect how our muscles function, how much water we are able to retain in our bodies, and how acid or alkaline our blood is. It’s important to replace them after exercise to prevent inadequate hydration and cramping and encourage proper muscle recovery.
After Practice Replenish and Repair contains all six electrolytes: Potassium, Chloride, Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Sodium, in addition to supportive minerals zinc, copper and selenium. We’ve also included Organic Coconut water as a natural hydrator, buffered Vitamin C for immune support, and fermented vegan amino acids L-Leucine and L-Glutamine for muscle repair and recovery. This natural Pineapple-coconut flavoured powder has zero sugars, zero calories, and nothing artificial. It’s like a restorative pose in water form!
Q: What does this product do?
A: After Practice was designed to help replace and rebalance electrolytes after exercise, AND support muscle recovery and immune function.
Q: Is it only for after a workout or yoga class?
A: It is wonderfully refreshing after any type of exercise, but it is also a fantastic intra-workout drink. Because it contains electrolytes, it is also beneficial when you are dehydrated, on hot summer days, to help replenish after gastric upset (vomiting or diarrhea), or while traveling.
Q: Why are there amino acids and electrolytes in it?
A: Both electrolytes and amino acids aid in muscle recovery, making it more efficient and helping reduce next day soreness. The amino acid L-glutamine has amazing gut health properties, and since the majority of our immune system resides in the gut, it helps to support immune function. Strenuous exercise is taxing on the immune system so we’ve also added vitamin C and select trace minerals.
Q: Does it dissolve well?
A: Best shaken, not stirred. After practice replenish & repair will dissolve best in a shaker cup or water bottle. The amino acid L-leucine is a bit resistant to dissolving completely, as is the powdered coconut water. If you stir it with a spoon it will eventually dissolve.
Q: What is the sweetener?
A: A combination of two natural, plant-based zero calorie sweeteners: Monk fruit with a tiny bit of Stevia. Most people tell us they can’t taste the stevia. The monk fruit tends to soften it.
Q: I have purchased this product in the past but it tastes a bit different this time. Is it ok?
A: Yes. At Niyama we only use natural flavours and sweeteners, so growing conditions and crops play a big role in how the flavours come across from one batch to the next. With artificial flavours and sweeteners you can get the exact same flavour profile every time, but with natural ingredients there are always variations. Our team works with each lot, trying to blend these premium natural ingredients carefully to match our approved taste profile – which is also impacted by some of the plant ingredients which can also vary in the intensity of natural colour and flavour they provide. It is a bit of an art, and minor variations are to be expected.
Q: How many calories are in each serving?
A: Zero calories and zero sugar.
Q: How does it taste?
A: Light and refreshing, not too sweet. It has been compared to a less sweet piña colada with a watery mouth feel, or pineapple coconut water, but without the aftertaste that sometimes comes with coconut water. You can also adjust the taste/sweetness by adding more or less water.
Q: I hate coconut. Will I like this product?
A: Probably not – sorry!
Q: I’m intermittent fasting, can I safely taking this without breaking my fast?
A: Yes, you can! Because After Practice has zero calories or sugars it will not break your fast.
Adults: Mix 1 scoop with cold water (shake in a shaker cup or water bottle or stir in a glass with spoon) and enjoy after savasana.
