“Sports drinks” are a dime a dozen. But most are the same—just sugar, salt and citric acid. That’s why we made HEED—the healthy alternative. HEED offers complex carbohydrates, a balanced electrolyte profile, and essential nutrients to balance blood sugar, buffer lactic acid, and ensure long-lasting energy.

HEED’s subtle flavor goes down easily, and the absence of citric acid prevents gastric upset and tooth decay. The healthful sweetener xylitol promotes oral health.

NOTE: It is believed that xylitol is unsafe for consumption by dogs; therefore, we do not recommend you feed your dog any xylitol-containing products, including HEED or Recoverite.


Ingredient breakdown:

  • Maltodextrin: A high-glycemic index (GI) complex carbohydrate, ideal for providing fast-acting, long-lasting energy during exercise and for replenishing the body’s glycogen stores after exercise.
  • Xylitol: This natural sweetener is found in a variety of fibrous fruits and vegetables. It promotes oral health, as it does not ferment and support the acid-producing bacteria that cause tooth decay.
  • Full-spectrum electrolyte profile: The complete profile of sodium, chloride, calcium, magnesium, and potassium helps maintain performance of many important bodily functions during exercise, while also helping protect against muscle cramping.
  • L-Carnosine: One of the most versatile and beneficial nutrients available. It buffers lactic acid during exercise and offers antioxidant support.
  • Glycine: This amino acid is beneficial for aiding with muscle tissue repair, protecting collagen in joints, and reducing joint pain. Additionally, glycine has a naturally sweet taste, contributing to Recoverite’s delicious flavor.
  • L-Tyrosine: Aids in the functioning of the adrenal, pituitary, and thyroid glands, which are responsible for the production and regulation of numerous key hormones. This contributes to increased performance levels and decreased recovery time.
  • Chromemate® brand chromium polynicotinate: This trace mineral helps regulate blood sugar and plays a vital role in the synthesis of glucose, fatty acids, and amino acids.

Keeps me from bonking on long rides

I use this with hammer perpetuem for long rides, and by itself for shorter rides. I'm generally not good at eating at regular intervals and this helps me to keep from bonking.

It tastes okay. Not bad, but not great. After a while I do want some plain water.

No GI issues. I tried many other products and brands (I even had major GI issue with Hammer Perp.) but with Heed

Great for endurance ridding. I take 30%-50% more than recommended when mixed with water for my double and triple century rides.

Tastes Great

Tastes good & goes down easy. Not too thick and bottles clean up easily. I use at least one bottle on every ride to extend my energy level. I will buy again.

Too bland

Preparing for a 200 mile race, I bought Heed to get used to it since that's all they served on the race. I found it to be bland compared to other mixes I was using. I ended up drinking less of it on my rides due to the taste...I'm sticking with my other mixes.

Mixes well, colorless which I love, and tastes good.

I use this ride on all of my road rides, which vary in distance from 20-100 miles. I do not notice any typical fatigue issues when I use it. I really like that it is colorless when mixed which makes keeping bottles clean less of a chore following a long ride. I would recommend it.

Tastes good and works really well

I've been riding long miles in serious heat and even used this for the Pike's Peak race with Hammer Gel as my sole source of hydration and nutrition. It works better than anything else I've used. It also tastes great!

Finally an energy drink that works and is easy on the stomach.

I've tried them all, and HEED is by far the best energy drink of all. It has a variety of flavors to choose from, is easy on the stomach and just plain works. Their use of all natural ingredients and no food coloring make it a top choice of many athletes. Sure, it's a bit more expensive than others - but it works for me and I don't mind paying the extra price. The amount of information and research on the Hammer Nutrition website is amazing. Since HEED has complex carbs and electrolytes it can be used in place of energy gels on shorter rides.

Sure didn't like the melon flavor

I've been a huge fan of Hammer products, Hammer gel, Recovrerite, and the Enduralytes Fizz. Maybe it was just this melon flavor, but I found myself not wanting to drink the HEED. Instead, I wanted to gag.

In my opinion, Hammer really messed up here.

I will continue to use the Hammer gel in Raspberry and espresso, but I will stay away from HEED.

Light and Easy on Your Stomach

I tried several brands (EFS, Ironman, Cytomax) but I'll be sticking with Heed. I do mostly longer rides so consequently I end up going through at least 58 oz. of this stuff when temperature is moderate. Other drinks taste overpowering and syrupy but Heed is light and unobtrusive so I can drink more of it. I also only use 1 to 1.5 scoops per 24 oz of water. It seems to hydrate me well on long rides. I have not tried all the flavors but I like the strawberry so far.
