Disclaimer: I was given SOS Rehydrate Mango Recovery Hydration Drink Mix to review and give away as a #sweatpink ambassador with FitApproach. As always, all opinions are my own!
I’d heard great things about SOS but had not tried it so I was excited to have this opportunity to try their new flavor, Mango!
SOS Rehydrate is a fast-acting electrolyte replacement and hydration drink that combats dehydration and is perfect for active lifestyles, days when you’re on-the-go or after a fun-filled holiday.
It’s a doctor formulated hydration drink mix and works as effectively as an IV. SOS Rehydrate has 3 times the amount of electrolytes as that of an average sports drink. It helps you absorb 3 times more water than just drink water alone. SOS Rehydrate tastes great and has 75% less carbohydrates than sports drinks.
Check out the comparison chart! And there is tons more information on the SOS Rehydrate website! I love that is is 100% free from artificial additives and only has 10 calories per serving.
I had a couple of packets of SOS Rehydrate after my first 50k at Ray Miller on November 7th. After the 50k, I wasn’t hungry nor was I thirsty. I knew my body was not quite right. I had a couple of packets of SOS the next day and felt much better. I felt cleansed in a way and my body was slowly recovering after being on my feet for over 10 hours.
I’ve been taking SOS Rehydrate with me to drink after races, too. I had a recovery drink after my Avengers Half Marathon to start balancing electrolyte levels right away.
I had a long week at work, finishing report cards and working on school activities. I had a Turkey Trot after that long week and recovered right away with my SOS Mango Recovery Drink.
I decided to make a recovery smoothie to kick off my Thanksgiving holiday. It’s been weeks of nonstop activity–the stress going into my 50k, running the 50k, recovering from my 50k, teaching, school-wide activities that I’m in charge of, report cards and more. My immune system has been down and I needed a good smoothie for a pick-me-up.
SOS Mango Recovery Smoothie:
• 1 1/2 cups of greens (spinach, kale)
• 1/2 persimmon
• 1/2 orange
• 1/3 banana
• 8 raw almonds
• 1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds
• 20 drops of grapefruit seed extract (great for combatting a cold)
• almond milk and water
• 1 packet of SOS Rehydrate Mango Recovery Hydration Drink Mix
I put all of the greens, fruit, nuts and seeds in my NutriBullet.
I added the Mango Recovery Hydration Drink Mix! I added about 1 cup of almond milk and filled the rest with water to the Max Fill Line.
I blasted it for about 20 seconds.
Ready to serve! Yum! It was refreshing and tasty. You can add any fruit you’d like. I had persimmon on hand from my family tree and I love persimmon during this time of year. I think adding strawberries would be really good, too.
I love that SOS Rehydrate comes in individual packets. They’re great to take with you when you’re running, traveling or busy at work. Now, you can win a box of SOS Rehydrate Mango Recovery Hydration Drink Mix, too!
