Sports Drinks – Read Your Labels

I was in the grocery store and took a look at the label of the powdered version of a popular sports drink. Two items on the list really stuck out at me:

  • Red #40
  • Partially Hydrogenated Coconut oil

Read the labels of all products you buy! Do your own research but I wouldn’t recommend putting either of these items into your body.

Here are a few online articles I found on these ingredients:

Artificial Food Dyes Linked to Behavior Problems

What’s Wrong with Partially Hydrogenated Oils?

Mercola Article on the Dangers of Trans Fats

Happy Training!
