MT CSK 12.05.08

There are a handful of effervescent drink tablets on the market, but one in particular has recently captured my attention – and my taste buds! Each serving of Motor Tabs offers a balance of essential electrolytes (sodium and potassium) along with a smattering of carbohydrates and calories, to provide optimal hydration and fuel without overloading one’s system and risking the belly bloat associated with high-sugar sports drinks. The effervescent tablets dissolve quickly and thoroughly in water, providing a delicious drink, enjoyed either alone or as a complement to energy gels or bars. Each tablet comes individually wrapped in an air-tight foil packet, making for easy transport for travel or long runs or rides where refilling bottles is a must.

In addition to being an ideal sports drink, Motor Tabs serves as a perfect thirst-quencher for any daily activity, especially in hot climates where electrolyte replenishment is critical. I packed a number of the tablets along on my recent trip to Hawaii, and enjoyed sipping the light, low-calorie flavors throughout the week, whether running, hiking about town or simply sunning on the beach or lanai.
