It's Basketball Season: Hydrate with BODYARMOR

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Taking a basketball break, hydrating with Blueberry-Pomegranate BodyArmor Lyte.

That's my boy. He's drinking a Blueberry-Pomegranate BODYARMOR LYTE (just 3 grams of sugar per serving). There are 4 flavors of LYTE available. My son has tried Peach Mango, Cherry Berry, Blueberry Pomegranate, and Orange Citrus...he loves them all. One thing you should know, when he plays, he plays hard. Another thing to know...he takes the sport of basketball very seriously. He'll stay out far longer than he should, trying to get that last bit of energy out of him before he comes home and collapses on the couch. I used to try and shoo him directly to the shower, but these days I've gotten smarter and I put a towel down before he sits, ha! Simple, but effective and then after he hydrates and rests a bit more, both he and the towel go right to the wash (not together, of course). 


BODYARMOR Sports Drink also announced this week that 6-packs will now be available at several retail locations across the U.S. including Kroger, Stop & Shop, Wegmen’s, King Kullen, Food Town and ShopRite.

Another thing we've learned to do, to allow him to get in more practice time, is bring along plenty of super refreshing drinks when we head to the court. I feel comfortable packing BODYARMOR LYTE, a superior hydration sports drink with a coconut water base. These are natural, low-calorie drinks packed with tons of electrolytes and vitamins. They are high in potassium, low in sodium and they have no colors or flavors from artificial sources. Just the kind of drink I want my son to have when he needs to refresh or hydrate. These are the next best thing, next to water...and even better than water, I have to say, on actual game days.


And speaking of water... BODYARMOR now has a premium water, designed by athletes, for athletes. It has a Performance pH of 8+ and a proprietary Sports Electrolyte formula.



You can get it in a big-mouth bottle, or a flip-top. My son likes the flip-top and takes that one to school in his bookbag so he has it ready for afternoon basketball practice. He also takes it to the court to practice, and uses it at home during the collapse-on-the-couch-to-hydrate-and-rest thing I talked about above. ;)



I prefer the wide-mouth bottle because it's huge. While it may not be my go-to drink during and after basketball practice/games, like it is for my son, it is perfect to carry with me to work. I may not be running marathons there, but I feel like it sometimes. ;)  In any case, BODYARMOR has hit a homerun, scored half-court and gotten the winning touchdown with its new line of BODYARMOR LYTE drinks and BODYARMOR SportWater. It's no wonder big sports names have made this the brand of athletes. I like everything about these drinks and can highly recommend them both.

You have to stay hydrated and keep those electrolytes up when you're working/playing hard.

Have a fabulous day. Happy Easter. ♥

I have never tried BODYARMOR but have heard great things about the brand. I should grab a few for my gym bag. The flavors do sound appealing!

I would like to try BODYARMOR. I like that there is only 3 grams of sugar in servings. This would be super for my son.

Pat Hatt said...

Sounds like they are perfect indeed. Good call on the towel on the couch, sweat stains may not go with the decor lol

I've never had this. Isaak is always drinking something for basketball. We should have him try this.

Binky said...

I've never heard of that brand, but it has a lot less sugar than a lot of them.

My twins tried basketball a couple of seasons, but they just couldn't seem to get into it. Your son sounds much more dedicated!

We love BODYARMOR. My kids always have it on hand when they're doing their sports, and I keep it with me when I work out.

Myrah Duque said...

Great idea on the towel. Prevents stains. Bodyarmor is a great supplement.

We've been drinking Body Armour since I first found it at our local grocery store cold drink case. We haven't seen the flip top bottles yet. My grandson loves those types of lids.

Audrey said...

That is a wonderful sports drink! With a lot of them having a ton of sugar, it's nice to see a drink that has less sugar in it and emphasizes better re-hydration. Peach Mango sounds delicious!

Candace said...

Keeping my kids hydrate it always worries me especially in this hot Georgia son

It's pretty amazing to have this with you especially when you're out doing sports or working out. I think it's nice that the kids enjoy it as well. Definitely a great way to keep your body hydrated!

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

I'm not sure I need a drink like that after spending a few hours wrestling with my muse and pounding on the keyboard, but I do like that it isn't as full of sugar as some sports drinks.

Boy! Your son is really growing fast, isn't he? Are you sure there's no fertilizer in those drinks? :)

Courtney Buechle said...

Those are one of my favorite drinks. You are so right, It is perfect for sports both before and after!

coach-daddy said...

I've seen this stuff around. Maybe the girls would like it after a grueling soccer match. Maybe they'd even share with dad!

Marissa Zurfluh said...

I would love to try this drink out. I love sports and staying hydrated is very important.

This sounds like a great recovery drink for both sports and regular exercise. I'd love to try the Peach Mango flavor . . . yum!

I saw someone drinking these the other day and wondered how they were...Thanks for the review, as I had never heard of them.

I'm a fitness instructor and runner, and this stuff looks great. I love the flip top bottle. I like the coconut water base and all the electrolytes this beverage has.
