Health and fitness has no bigger component than water. But all water is not created equal, and that is why drinking Essentia can truly make a difference when it comes to hydration. Essentia offers more than just your typical water. It uses a proprietary ionization process that results in an alkaline water with a pH of 9.5 or higher, which means it hydrates better than other water, as shown in a clinical trial against a leading bottled water. The study, published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, measured how well a leading bottled water and Essentia Water rehydrated after moderate aerobic exercise.
Simple dehydration can impact how you feel from your joints to your muscles, whether you exercise or not. It can impact your sleep, overall health and energy level. You’ll notice a difference when you’re hydrated or not.
With each bottle of Essentia, not only do you enjoy the benefits of its ionization process, but you also get water that is infused with trace amounts of essential minerals. What that does is it emulates the naturally occurring minerals in your body. In terms of purity, Essentia water has taken that part of the process to the highest level through its process of microfiltration, reverse osmosis and ultraviolet light exposure that creates water that is 99.9% pure. Essentia clearly sets itself apart from all other bottled water.
Comfortable clothing are important to your workout and it certainly doesn’t hurt if it is stylish as well. Under Armour took care of both with the recently launched “Lindsey Vonn Signature Collection”, a collection designed and created in collaboration with the World Champion alpine skier. The collection officially launched in Lake Louise, Canada – a place nicknamed Lake Lindsey due to the success she has consistently seen on this course: 14 downhill victories and 4 super-G wins. The elevated resort collection pays homage to Lindsey’s Unlike Any career and features Lindsey’s personal touches throughout the collection – the custom LV Logo displayed on her collection is taken directly from her signature; each item honors a milestone in her historic athletic career, and the lining of the jackets feature a custom print that showcases her accomplishments. The Lindsey Vonn Signature Collection is just one way Under Armour is rallying behind the World Champion Alpine Skier ahead of the Olympics in Pyeonchang this coming February. Pieces of the Lindsey Vonn Signature Collection will be available in January 2018, with presale that began November 30th, 2017 on UA.com. The full collection will be available for purchase in Fall / Winter 2018. Another great gift is the UA Team Charged Bandit 3 running shoes that come in Wisconsin, UCLA and other Under Armour licensed schools. For more information, visit: Bandit 3

Quest Nutrition seems to be coming out with new products and new flavors so often that it is almost shocking it took so long for them to release their “BIRTHDAY CAKE” flavor. With everything that Quest does, they make sure that they get it right before they release it and they did just that with this new flavor. You really do get a true birthday cake experience, frosting included, to go along with 20-21 grams of protein, fiber, no extra carbs and no added sugar along with being gluten and soy free. While the birthday cake flavor is amazing, you can’t go wrong with any flavor bar, protein powder or chips as a great way to satisfy your cravings.
