“Sports drinks” are a dime a dozen. But most are the same—just sugar, salt and citric acid. That’s why we made HEED—the healthy alternative. HEED offers complex carbohydrates, a balanced electrolyte profile, and essential nutrients to balance blood sugar, buffer lactic acid, and ensure long-lasting energy.

HEED’s subtle flavor goes down easily, and the absence of citric acid prevents gastric upset and tooth decay. The healthful sweetener xylitol promotes oral health.

NOTE: It is believed that xylitol is unsafe for consumption by dogs; therefore, we do not recommend you feed your dog any xylitol-containing products, including HEED or Recoverite.


Ingredient breakdown:

  • Maltodextrin: A high-glycemic index (GI) complex carbohydrate, ideal for providing fast-acting, long-lasting energy during exercise and for replenishing the body’s glycogen stores after exercise.
  • Xylitol: This natural sweetener is found in a variety of fibrous fruits and vegetables. It promotes oral health, as it does not ferment and support the acid-producing bacteria that cause tooth decay.
  • Full-spectrum electrolyte profile: The complete profile of sodium, chloride, calcium, magnesium, and potassium helps maintain performance of many important bodily functions during exercise, while also helping protect against muscle cramping.
  • L-Carnosine: One of the most versatile and beneficial nutrients available. It buffers lactic acid during exercise and offers antioxidant support.
  • Glycine: This amino acid is beneficial for aiding with muscle tissue repair, protecting collagen in joints, and reducing joint pain. Additionally, glycine has a naturally sweet taste, contributing to Recoverite’s delicious flavor.
  • L-Tyrosine: Aids in the functioning of the adrenal, pituitary, and thyroid glands, which are responsible for the production and regulation of numerous key hormones. This contributes to increased performance levels and decreased recovery time.
  • Chromemate® brand chromium polynicotinate: This trace mineral helps regulate blood sugar and plays a vital role in the synthesis of glucose, fatty acids, and amino acids.

I've been a huge fan of Hammer products, Hammer gel, Recovrerite, and the Enduralytes Fizz. Maybe it was just this melon flavor, but I found myself not wanting to drink the HEED. Instead, I wanted to gag.

In my opinion, Hammer really messed up here.

I will continue to use the Hammer gel in Raspberry and espresso, but I will stay away from HEED.

I tried several brands (EFS, Ironman, Cytomax) but I'll be sticking with Heed. I do mostly longer rides so consequently I end up going through at least 58 oz. of this stuff when temperature is moderate. Other drinks taste overpowering and syrupy but Heed is light and unobtrusive so I can drink more of it. I also only use 1 to 1.5 scoops per 24 oz of water. It seems to hydrate me well on long rides. I have not tried all the flavors but I like the strawberry so far.

HEED is a great product for pre and during training rides, all natural, no artificial sweeteners and not full of sugar and sodium...Remember less is more, when it comes to fueling yourself correctly....HEED is a great base product to use for electrolyte replacement and good clean calories....

My husband and I started riding because our kids are competitive racers and triathletes. This product is the best, it does not upset the stomach and replenishes all the necessary electrolytes needed for the steaming hot rides we encounter almost year round. I have already converted several of my athletic friends from gatoraide to heed and they love it too. No more cotton mouth or upset stomaches.

No Good Electrolyte Replacement, Cheap GMO Energy
rating
by Anonymous

0 of 1 customers found this review helpful.

Used the whole jar because I'm cheap and won't waste it but Hammer HEED is inferior as electrolyte replacement to Skratch or Osmo - not enough sodium or potassium. Then there is the maltodextrin, which is a cheap artificially-created energy source (usually processed from GMO corn) that has a couple serious downsides a high glycemic index that makes blood sugar regulation harder and a lot of people have a negative GI reaction to it which involves gas, bloating and diarrhea. That reaction, and the low electrolyte levels, are why I no longer use it.

I use this with hammer perpetuem for long rides, and by itself for shorter rides. I'm generally not good at eating at regular intervals and this helps me to keep from bonking.

It tastes okay. Not bad, but not great. After a while I do want some plain water.
