Active Root brings the power of ginger to endurance athletes through their range of sports nutrition, designed to balance, fuel, and hydrate. Many studies have shown ginger’s ability to reduce bloating and gastric discomfort, and for centuries has even been used as a cure for nausea.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Why use Active Root?

IS ACTIVE ROOT VEGAN?

Yes! All the ingredients in Active Root are suitable for vegans and are produced using methods that do not introduce or use meat or derivatives of meat. Our products are manufactured under strict hygiene guidelines where no contaminants can be introduced to the recipe.

WHAT INGREDIENTS DOES ACTIVE ROOT CONTAIN?

All four of the ingredients in Active Root are familiar and natural: unbleached cane sugar, citric acid, sea salt and natural root ginger. We have configured these ingredients into a formula that helps keep the body balanced, fuelled and hydrated for longer than similar products. Our formula is completely free of artificial sweeteners, preservatives and colours and was created with the help of our resident Sports Nutrition Scientist Huw Stradling. He has over five years’ experience of working on nutritional plans for high-level sports teams across the UK.

WHEN SHOULD I USE ACTIVE ROOT? BEFORE, DURING OR AFTER?

Active Root can be used before, during and after exercise.

HOW DO I USE THE ACTIVE ROOT GEL MIX?

Using the scoop provided with a large pouch, simply add one serving of Gel Mix powder into a reusable soft flask, using the lid as a funnel, and add half the amount of water to mix. Shake for 30 seconds and your gel is ready, no more sticky single-use gels.

1x scoop = 1x 25g serving. Each serving makes up the equivalent of 1x standard single-use gel (we recommend adding 3x gels servings or one 75g scoop to your soft flask before filling the rest of the soft flask with water).

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF GINGER ON ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE?

Ginger has been used to cure nausea and sea sickness since ancient Chinese times. However, until now, its athletic performance benefits have never been properly applied. Active Root uses natural root ginger in all its products to help soothe the stomach and prevent gastric discomfort before, during and after exercise. Studies have shown that 30%-50% of endurance athletes suffer from gastrointestinal (GI) discomfort. That’s hardly surprising given the impact on the body of activities such as running, cycling and swimming. Further information on how ginger can make you feel better during exercise are in our science section.
