A while back I was introduced to Elete Water via my friends over at Whole 9 Life. This was the product I was searching for and did not even know it. I’ve used it now for about three months and love it.

If you know me, then you know that I’m extremely particular in regards to the food and supplements I put in my body. I do not consume dairy or grains in any form. I will not even consume a protein powder made with whey protein because I know how my body will react to it. I take omega-3 (ORIGINAL Nutritionals) daily, probiotics (either in food or a cycle of supplements), and expose myself to sunshine all on a regular basis.

I tried Elete Water in hopes that it would be a great electrolyte source for BirthFIT mamas. Not to my surprise at all, it proved super beneficial during labor and during competition. I had a few laboring mamas try it out and one CrossFit competitor try it out. No one had a bad thing to say about the product.

Elete Water made a world of difference in laboring mamas. Hydration is a big deal when a mother goes into labor. Often times a mom becomes tired, dehydrated, and her fuel tank becomes real during labor. With the handful of mamas I asked to try this, they got tired, but always felt like there was a little more to give. For my CrossFit competitor that tried it out, let’s just say she kicked butt, and I did not have to worry about hydration once during her regional’s competition.

Elete water contains no calories, carbohydrates, or artificial ingredients. It does contain Magnesium, Chloride, Sulfate, Sodium, and Potassium. Based on the style of product you purchase, instructions will accompany your order of exactly how to take it and how much water to mix with it. Elete water is sufficient source of electrolytes. Look for it on the  new BirthFIT website in the near future.
