The great thing about Ultima, to me, is that it mimics what is found in natural, whole foods. The balances are spot on. And, there is no sugar. HUGE. Especially when comparing it to something like Gatorade which has high-fructose corn syrup in it. This uses stevia as a sweetener. Now, I am not a fan of stevia, at all, but you don't get a funky stevia taste with this; it just tastes a lot like Kool-aid. By the way, if you aren't familiar, stevia is a plant that has very sweet leaves and is used in health foods as a sugar alternative.
I tried Ultima Replenisher for two solid months and was thoroughly satisfied with the results, so much so, that I had to tell you all about it and I am now a repeat customer. I will buying this as a staple from here on out. I won't be giving up my coconut water (which I use sparingly) or my sodium (we PoTSies need lots of it!), but this is a great way to get electrolytes and keep up the fluid intake --so vital for us. And, nope, as usual, I am not a paid spokesperson, I just like sharing what I find helpful.
Here's the breakdown; notice that Ultima has 13 electrolytes and minerals:
I would love to share with you, so I am giving away some samples of Ultima to two different people. I can't afford to give you a ton, but I have some packets to spare. If you would like to try Ultima Replenisher, just enter the giveaway by subscribing to the site (upper right corner of this page) and by commenting below. If you already have subscribed, just let me know in the comments. I will pick two random winners and update this post on August 25th, 2014.
Where to buy Ultima Replenisher:
You can purchase Ultima through their website or via Amazon through the LifeWithEDS store. The cheapest way, I have found, is to buy it through the Amazon link. You can purchase a 90-serving container for around $20. That gives you 3 servings a day for an entire month for around $20--- much cheaper than 3 bottles a day of Gatorade or coconut water, with more electrolytes and minerals. Stretch it out and double the water, if you'd like, like I do. My favorite flavor is raspberry.
Update 8/25/14: WINNERS!
Cynthia and Fiddlin' Dandi, you have both won samples of Ultima! Please contact me via the email form with your name and mailing info and I will get it out to you ASAP. Much love!
Hope you found this post helpful! Love and gentle hugs.
