Natural ginger sports nutrition that is scientifically proven to help prevent stomach discomfort so you can continue to optimally fuel and hydrate

At Active Root we’re committed to delivering delicious, natural, eco-friendly, ginger based sports nutrition.

Whether you’re a seasoned ironman, a keen ultra runner or training for your 1st park run, our drinks and gels are crafted to help improve your performance.

All our products are suitable for vegetarian, vegan, gluten and dairy free diets.

GINGER

We use natural root ginger in all our nutrition products. Ginger is scientifically proven to help prevent bloating, nausea and stomach discomfort during exercise, thereby allowing athletes to focus on their performance rather than their stomach.

NATURAL

We only use simple, high quality natural ingredients. You won’t find any unpronounceable nasties in our products. We believe natural ingredients help maintain a settled stomach, which provide more predictable results, avoiding the dreaded gut bomb!

ECO-FRIENDLY

Part of our ethos at Active Root is to bring you sports nutrition that  reduces and reuses plastic. We offer compostable refill pouches for all our products and our Gel Mix removes the need for single use plastic gel wrappers. Join us and reduce your carbon footprint.

DELICIOUS

All of our products have a clean, light refreshing taste that leaves you wanting more. We know you want your sports nutrition to taste clean and delicious, rather than refuelling & rehydrating with something that you don’t like the taste of!
