Hammer Nutrition Heed Details

  • Steady, consistent energy
  • Buffer lactic acid
  • Help prevent cramps
  • Gluten-Free and Vegan Friendly
  • Contains no MSG
  • Kosher Certified

Hammer Nutrition Heed is a definite "step up" and welcome departure from the seemingly endless number of powdered sports drinks available to endurance athletes, giving you all the convenience of a powdered drink mix along with many added benefits not found in the vast majority of sports drinks. One of the primary flaws inherent with most sports drinks is their reliance on simple sugar as the carbohydrate source. The use of simple sugar such as glucose, sucrose, and fructose not only severely limits the amount of calories that can be efficiently digested and utilized for energy, it may cause wild fluctuations in energy levels. Heed's all-complex carbohydrate formula, on the other hand, allows you to obtain the ideal amount of calories you need, providing a more consistent and longer lasting energy supply, and without putting you at risk for stomach distress.

Heed also provides a complete and easily assimilated electrolyte profile, not just salt and potassium, which comprise the electrolyte "profile" of most other drinks. For some athletes, one or two level scoops of HEED will completely fulfill electrolyte requirements (in addition to caloric requirements). For other athletes, the electrolyte profile in Heed will provide an excellent base from which additional Endurolytes can be added to completely satisfy electrolyte needs. With added chromium polynicotinate for maintaining stable blood glucose levels and l-carnosine for buffering lactic acid, Heed is truly in a class of its on in the world of powdered sports drinks.

So whenever and wherever a sports drink is your preferred choice, heed your body's desire for a superior fuel. Heed is the only choice you need to make.

Hammer Nutrition Heed Benefits

Hammer Nutrition Heed sports drinks come in the following delicious flavors: Strawberry, Melon, Mandarin Orange, Lemon-Lime, and Unflavored.

Sports drinks have been around a long time and for many athletes they're more convenient than energy gels. Unfortunately, most sport drinks are not much more than artificially colored sugar water that does little to aid your performance and even less for your health. That is why we developed Heed as a healthy alternative to keep you hydrated.  Heed 's subtle tasting, all-complex carbohydrate formula goes down easily and supplies you with consistent, long-lasting energy and the electrolytes you need to keep pushing the pace. Because we add no citric acid to the formula, it will not burn your throat or stomach no matter how long you drink it. Heed's sweeteners - stevia and xylitol - are actually good for you, xylitol being especially beneficial for helping promote oral health. The full-spectrum, all chelated mineral, electrolyte profile helps satisfy your body's mineral requirements. L-Carnosine and Chromium Polynicotinate help to buffer lactic acid and support stable blood glucose levels. If you prefer sports drinks over energy gels or like to use the two together, try Heed and find out what a sports drink done right can do for your athletic performance.

    "I am an avid cyclist and have been using Hammer products now for over 3 years. I take a bottle of heed out on the road each time I go for a ride, I find that regardless of whether I am riding for an hour or over three, I get consistent energy from this product. I love the taste and it's easy on the stomach. For longer rides I use the gel along with the drink and that helps keep my energy levels high throughout the entire ride.

    I also use this product when I go kick-boxing and again it gives me consistent energy throughout the workout, my girlfriends all wonder where I get my energy from, this certainly helps!"

    "I have to say that since I started using Heed a week ago, I have way more energy at the gym, which has lead to a full week of amazing workouts. It's not the greatest tasting stuff (maybe I'm diluting it too much because I don't want that many carbs and want it to last my entire session), but I usually just mix a bit of flavoured glutamine into it and it tastes fine. It settles at the bottom as well, but that's not really an issue."

Things to Look Out For!

Notes:

When training sessions or races go much longer than two hours, select either Perpetuem or Sustained Energy as your primary fuel source. In these instances, HEED can still be used intermittently for variety as long as your total hourly caloric intake does not exceed your training determined maximum.

Each scoop of HEED contains the equivalent amount of electrolytes as approximately 2/3 of an Endurolytes capsule. For many athletes, under normal conditions, one or two scoops of HEED will completely fulfill electrolyte requirements. When heat stress increases significantly, you will need to consume additional Endurolytes.

*It is believed that xylitol is unsafe for consumption by dogs; therefore, we do not recommend you feed your dog any products that contain xylitol, nor any products that are made for human consumption.
