ZYM Review

If you are involved in endurance sports then Zym sport drink tablets were designed with you in mind. Whether cycling, running, trekking or working out in the gym, Zym tablets hydrate elite athletes without any sugar. ZYM comes in a plastic tube containing 10 tablet. A tube costs $8-10  and comes in three versions, each with their own flavor, Rival (orange), Endurance (lemon-lime), and Catapult (berry).

I tested Zym on a recent weekend of rock climbing, and the tablets were a welcome relief from the powdered electrolyte packets I usually carry around. All you do is pop a tablet into 16-20 oz. of water and leave it for a minute to dissolve. One tablet replaces the Sodium, Potassium, Calcium and Magnesium your body sweats out during exercise and revitalizes tired muscles. Instantly noticeable is the absence of a sugary residue, which is usually left in the last mouthful of the majority of electrolyte drinks. ZYM tablets aren’t highly salted either, leaving a clean after taste on the palette.

ZYM blend electrolytes and B-vitamins to combat fatigue and give your jelly legs instant stability. The ZYM Catapult formula has the added bonus of 100mg of guarana caffeine to give tired minds an extra wake-up boost.

ZYM tablets are awesome, and actually make you look forward to your energy boost drink rather than squinting with every swig. Although they don’t market the intention, those that enjoy travelling will benefit from having ZYM as a rehydration back up and an effective way to boost energy after tiring flights, treks, sight seeing and time zone differences.
