Whether I am sitting on the side of a mountain, in an airport, or in my office preparing for a big meeting the WA Super Man drink picks me up and keeps me sharp like nothing I have ever tried. Now it’s available in single serving packets. Thank you Santa!
Hydrate or die is what Camelbak says and they are absolutely correct but everybody knows that. The part you don’t know is that most of us walk around in a perpetual state of under hydration and it effects the way we perform. It isn’t until we start doing it right that we realize what we were missing and how much better we feel when the body gets and maintains what it needs.
When you reach the point where you are just 2% under hydrated you begin to negatively impact higher mentation capabilities and fine motor skills. As an athlete, a SAR Tech-EMT, coach, and outdoorsman living in the desert Southwest this point has been driven home to me time and time again sometimes with serious or even deadly results.
I have tried a lot of different products and there was only one that I really liked until I tried Hydrate & Recover from Wilderness Athlete. I would say that maybe it was just a good fit for me and let it go at that but I hear the same thing from my players and my firefighter buddies. It works well for all of us.
The other piece of this equation is the Energy & Focus powder from WA. Now, I am no expert in how these things work but I swear on my childrens eyes that this product helps my brain work better. I remember things better, my recall of highly technical information is better, I communicate better, the right words come to me easier. I am simply “on” after I have had a glass of this stuff. It works so well that I took to carrying zip lock baggies of E&F with me when I had important business meetings or presentations and it has never let me down.
The best part is that it doesn’t come with a rush and it doesn’t end in a crash. All of a sudden I find myself doing more and feeling, well, younger. More energetic. Wide eyed and bushy tailed but not bouncing off the walls or jittery like a Red Bull or too much coffee makes me feel. No highs, no lows, just better and steady.
Mix the two products together and you get what we call the Super Man. I don’t drink coffee anymore in the morning. I mix one of these up in a big tumbler and it lasts me until about lunch time. It tastes great, I feel great until I rack out at night and I go to sleep no different than I always have. The other benefits are even more subtle but I don’t have anything else to attribute it to so it must be the Super Man. Despite working with 120 kids every day I haven’t gotten sick and all my little aches and pains don’t bother me as much as they used to so I figure the Vitamin C, B6, B12, and Glucosamine that comes in the Super Man must be working.
So, you can imagine my elation when I found out that both the Energy & Focus and Hydrate & Recover were going to be available in individual, single serving packets. Yea! No more baggies of my magic powder, my elixir, my go go juice. I still use the tubs when I am at home but when I am traveling I just rip, pour, stir, and drink.
I am telling you guys, give the Super Man a try and you will see what I am talking about. Because of my unique and long relationship with Wilderness Athlete, I can get you a 10% discount on any of their products.
