Features:
  • Gluten and Lactose Free
  • Flavors: Mixed Berry, Mango Tangerine, Lemon Lime
  • All Natural ingredients, including stevia

Not an intense or traditional ingredient electrolyte replacement, Ola Loa sport beverage is more about vitamins and minerals than electrolytes. 200 mg of potassium is much more than most electrolyte replacements, but the 40 mg of sodium is far under what would be considered adequate as an endurance sport electrolyte beverage. That being said, Ola Loa (it's made in Hawaii) remains true to its vitamin supplement heritage. 1,000 mg of vitamin C is 1670% of dv, with more than 100% of B1, B2, B6, B12, Folic acid, and pantothenic acid supplied as well.

When mixed in water and kept stirred (it tends to settle) the product is reminiscent of its vitamin heritage in fragrance. Actually enjoying this product is probably dependent upon a degree of "acquired taste". It is admittedly far healthier in nutrient components than most hydration products, for instance the sweetening is not artificial, but rather relies upon stevia (an herbal ingredient that has a somewhat checkered past, and its mineral delivery is more complete than most hydration products but, you do have to want to drink the product on the road if you plan on using it as an electrolyte replacement product.

I suspect that I would classify this more as a recovery product. At least for me.
