RAW Superdrink with swimming
Swimming is one of the most technical sports in the world. In addition, the physical preparation of swimmers plays an equally fundamental role. These two factors together make swimming one of the most demanding sports in the world. Although the aquatic environment keeps us cool, we cannot forget that while we swim we also lose mineral salts and electrolytes. These salts are the ones we need to recover to improve our recovery and increase our performance. A typical mistake for beginner swimmers is not to hydrate properly during training. Influenced by the fact that they are practicing a water sport, which keeps the body in a certain freshness, many swimmers forget to hydrate themselves during training. It is common for inexperienced swimmers to get cramps at night (especially in the lower body, after kicking sets). These cramps, often erroneously associated with the workload during entry or with mere physical intensity, have more to do with the poor rehydration we referred to. The electrolytes that we lose when we do sport (also in the aquatic environment) are the real cause of this ailment, which is relatively frequent among younger and inexperienced swimmers. Poor electrolyte recovery is the real cause of cramps and exhaustion.
But what are electrolytes and what are they for? To sum up, electrolytes are a group of mineral salts, including calcium, potassium, magnesium and calcium, which play a determining role in the nervous system and in muscular activity. Potassium, for example, is one of the minerals that helps significantly in muscle contraction. When we do sport and sweat, we lose mineral salts and electrolytes that cannot be replenished with water alone (that’s why a good sportsman needs to eat a balanced diet and rely on an isotonic drink such as RAW Sport Drink). It is this loss of electrolytes not properly “recharged” that causes the most frequent cramps and serious ailments to appear. It is important, especially for swimmers, to remember that good sports hydration is key to achieving improved sports performance and staying healthy. The fact of practicing sports in an environment that keeps you cool should not make you forget that the wear and tear on mineral salts and electrolytes also affects you. The demand to replace the mineral loss you suffer when doing sport is high and RAW Superdrink appears as an answer to this demand.
Fortunately, modern athletes are much better informed and more committed to all aspects of training, from diet to recovery. The awareness that just having talent (and a little training) is by no means enough has caught up with all kinds of sports, and especially the most demanding ones (like swimming). This new generation of more aware and informed sportspeople is the one that has especially bet on RAW Superdrink as its reference isotonic drink.
Swimming is undoubtedly one of the most demanding sports in existence and requires huge quotas of sacrifice. Few sports combine so many different factors and so many different skills: technique, flexibility, power, strength, motivation, endurance… To improve swimming times by just a few tenths requires months of training and planning, which is why it is extremely important to take good care of all the details, including hydration.
As far as RAW Superdrink is concerned, sports recovery is a truly key factor. “Poor recovery conditions training and ultimately competition. RAW Superdrink offers an answer to this reality and provides an organic and completely healthy isotonic solution. What does organic mean? Very simply, that our ingredients are totally organic (and that’s why we have the European Union’s BIO seal on our labelling). RAW Superdrink does not use artificial products in its production, nor added sugars, stabilizers or similar. Our product is completely organic, based on spring water from the Austrian Alps, organic superfruits such as açai, blueberries or mango (full of vitamins, antioxidants and minerals), sea salt, coconut water or baobab. Obviously this is something you can notice from minute one.
In addition to improving electrolyte recovery and rehydrating in a unique way, RAW Sport Drink is the perfect drink for athletes (and all kinds of people) because it provides a large amount of vitamins and antioxidants that help improve the digestive system, intestinal transit, aging health or the immune system. The reduction of inflammation is another aspect in which RAW also stands out, a factor that helps prevent injuries and improve recovery.
