Advantages: Price, results
After being a keen exerciser for a number of years I started noticing that despite drinking pint after pint of water I was still feeling dehydrated, sometimes even the morning after exercise. After a bit of research I was led towards isotonic sports drinks, notably Lucozade.
I continued to use Lucozade for the coming weeks with great results, but my excessive pocket exercising was certainly making it feel a lot thinner. I noticed Asda's own brand Orange isotonic drink was less than half the price of the Lucozade one I had been buying and thought it was worth a try. I have to say I have exactly the same positive results now since using the Asda one as I did when using the Lucozade drink, only it is much cheaper. The taste is nothing to complain about either, especially if you're a fan of stronger tasting orange drinks but even if you don't, half price for the same results is not something to pass on.
The drinks help to re-hydrate the body by including the same blend of water and salts that should be found in a human body. The orange taste is strong but one purely for the pleasure of the drinker.
When drinking this Asda isotonic you will not notice any difference in texture to the Lucozade comparison, which if you're unfamiliar with both products, is similar to that of an orange cordial (ever so slightly thicker than water).
The sports bottle that the drink is bought in also appears to be modelled on the successful Lucozade drink with a 'sports cap' fitted on the top (one that can be either screwed on/off or flipped up and squirted/sucked out). The packaging is simple, with the front containing only the name of the product, the name 'ASDA' and a picture of an orange to indicate the flavour. Nutritional information can also be found on the packaging.
I typically feel the benefits from drinking the sports drink after around half an hour after finishing it; meaning that I can feel re-hydrated in as quickly as thirty minutes.
I recommend this product to anyone who feels dehydrated after exercise or anybody who currently drink the Lucozade isotonic drinks as it really is the same!
