Hmm. I ask for diet cola for two reasons; to avoid sugar and to avoid asking for Coke-a-Cola by brand. Sugar isn’t good, and Coke sponsored Russian and Chinese-hosted Olympic sports washing events.
I don’t ask for caffeine free. I want the caffeine. So, why am I intrigued by the caffeine-free new drink from Sneak? Sneak Hydrate is no sugar and no caffeine.
I looked at the macros for Sneak Hydrate Mango. It comes in a tub, and it’s about 90p per drink.
It contains natural flavourings (yeah, but sugar and the other type of coke are natural), a thing called Ashwagandha KSM-66 which is for stress relief (stressful!), cocomineral which is a form of coconut water, electrolytes, vitamins and zinc.
I can unpack that further. It has 100% of your recommended daily vitamin C, B1, B2, B3, B6 and B12.
I struggle with health, have to track what I eat and can promise you the following are all frightfully hard to eat 100% of your RDA. Sneak Hydrate has 7% of your daily Potassium, 7% of your daily Calcium, and 15% of your magnesium and zinc.
It has 1000mg of taurine, which is the kick that Red Bull gets its name from, 300mg of that spooky ashwagandha and 98mg of sodium (almost salt) and a further 100mg of pink salt.
In other words, Sneak Hydrate might actually be a drinkable vitamin pill. I could be persuaded if I knew its calories and protein (the latter, I suspect, is 0.00, or we’d be hearing about it).
I’m told Hydrate will be exclusive to the Sneak Energy store, and will come to US & EU markets by mid-June.
Update: 5th May – This article initially said Hydrate would come to Amazon in the UK, but I’ve been made aware of a change of plans. It won’t. Additionally, I’ve fixed typos on the mg amount for taurine and ashwagandha.
Shamelessly lazy research
I also asked Google’s Bard two questions;
What is Ashwagandha KSM-66?
Ashwagandha KSM-66 is an extract derived from the ashwagandha plant that is renowned for its numerous health benefits. It is a full-spectrum extract that contains all of the plant’s active elements, making it more potent than extracts made from only one active ingredient.
Ashwagandha KSM-66 is an adaptogen that assists the body in adapting to stress, effectively reducing stress, anxiety, and depression. Additionally, it can enhance sleep quality, energy levels, and cognitive function. Furthermore, Ashwagandha KSM-66 is a potent antioxidant, shielding the body from free radicals that may damage cells and contribute to chronic ailments such as heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease. For most individuals, Ashwagandha KSM-66 is a safe and efficient supplement with minimal side effects. Nevertheless, if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking any medications, it is essential to consult with your doctor before using Ashwagandha KSM-66.
What is taurine?
Taurine is an amino acid that is conditionally essential, meaning that it is typically produced by the body but may require supplementation during times of stress or illness. High concentrations of taurine can be found in the brain, heart, eyes, and muscles. It can be obtained from various sources, such as meat, fish, eggs, dairy products, and some plant-based foods like seaweed. Taurine is also available as a dietary supplement, although most individuals obtain sufficient amounts through their diet.
However, if you are considering taking taurine supplements, it is essential to consult your physician first.
Clearly, a large language model is not a replacement for medical advice.
