While I compensated for this review of BodyArmor, all opinions are my own. I hope you enjoy my review.
Summer is coming although you wouldn’t be able to tell that by the the thermometer outside my house. I live on a hill in the SF Bay area. I have a view that has to be seen to be believed. But the the other side of the coin is that I have no shade and the hill is so steep that people drive to my street just to use the hill as exercise. So having a product like BodyArmor in the fridge helps to slack my kids thirst and replace the fluids lost from walking home from school and trekking up our own Mt. Everest.
I like being able to give my family something to drink besides water and juice. Water is good, but I also like to give my kids something with flavor.
I Like What’s In the BodyArmor Bottle
BodyArmor not only hydrates but a single serving has 100% of the daily allowance of several vitamins and minerals such as B6, B12, Niacin and Folic Acid. And as a mom, I try whenever possible to get vitamins and minerals into my kids (and me!). Here is quick fact I noticed as I wrote this post. Each bottle of BodyArmor holds two servings, 8 oz each. We rarely drink half a bottle. So, for approximately 160 calories, we get 100%+ of eight different vitamins and a significant amount of the daily requirement of Zinc. Among other things, Zinc helps keeps the immune system strong and supports normal growth.
BodyArmor also uses cane sugar which I like because the taste seems to be lighter, less sugary than other sweetners. This is just a personal preference for me. I’ve grabbed a nutritional label from the BodyArmor site and posted it here.
Our BodyArmor Taste Test
Of course we had to have a taste test in our house. BodyArmor comes in 8 flavors. We used six for our taste test.
The winners in our house were Tropical Punch and Orange Mango. I think that Orange Mango might have had an advantage since it is also the favorite of Klay Thompson, but whom am I to argue?
I’ve started tossing one in my bag before I go to the gym. And don’t forget family trips to the pools, water parks and beaches. Outings such as these also use a lot of the body’s fluids. I found BodyArmor at my local Safeway store. You can also find a store near you using this link. I’ve followed BodyArmor on Facebook to stay up to date on sales, specials and coupons.
