Skratch Labs Cookie Mix Skratch Labs Cookie Mix
Back up the energy-supplementing deliciousness of the Skratch Labs Cookie Mix before your next ride. This 13. 9-ounce mix is good for approximately 18 cookie bars that are moist and solid enough to transport in your cycling jersey's pocket without 'em turning into a crumbly mess. To bake these deliciously moist and delectable cookie bars, simply add a stick of butter and egg, as well as chocolate chips, nuts, and fruit extras for extra decadence. And because this simple mixture only consists of wheat flour, cane sugar, brown cane sugar, oats, leavening, vanilla extract, and cinnamon, you'll find they're incredibly easy to digest when you're riding long distances and recovering from strenuous exercise.

Daily Electrolyte mix comes in two flavors--Lemons & Limes and Raspberry. Both are flavored with only real fruit and contain no artificial sweeteners, coloring agents, or preservatives. It leaves you naturally hydrated with a great taste.

Skratch Labs Daily Electrolyte Drink Mix - Box Skratch Labs Daily Electrolyte Drink Mix - Box
Dr. Allen Lim has worked with professional cyclists to develop the very best in hydration solutions. the Daily Electrolyte Drink Mix is no exception. In fact, it is one of the most versatile drink mixes offered by Skratch Labs -- perfect for pre-hydration or off-the-bike hydration. It was created as a response to riders constantly complaining of headaches, and they were plagued with stomach problems stemming from improper hydration. But, the problem didn't stem from not drinking enough, rather that the riders weren't putting the right fluids in their bodies, and the results were both painful and immediately apparent. Unlike many sports drinks, which are formulated around electrolyte or caloric replenishment before or during exercise, the Daily Electrolyte Mix focuses on a preemptive hydration strike to ensure that your body's sodium levels are optimized before physical exertion. Lim discovered that the rampant headaches that were plaguing his group of pros were not induced by a lack of fluids, but from a lack of sodium -- a very typical symptom of dehydration. Essentially, your kidneys regulate fluid retention based on the body's concentration of sodium. When sodium concentration is high, your body is forced to hold on to that fluid to dilute it. But when your sodium levels get too low from sweat loss, the opposite happens and your kidneys must expel that fluid. Lim's mix is designed to keep your body's sodium balance carefully regulated, maintaining hydration while also slowing diuresis. With diuresis slowed, you'll be able to pre-hydrate, and be able to drink more before a race without making those three inopportune bathroom breaks right before your call-up. If these concepts around a sodium-based formula sound familiar, that's because they are. Lim's drink mix contains nearly four times the amount of sodium in many convenience store sports drinks, putting it on par with emergency-grade rehydration salt formulas like Pedialyte, and those used by the World Heal...

Skratch Labs Endurance Recovery Mix Skratch Labs Endurance Recovery Mix
Skratch Labs tells us that the impetus behind its Endurance Recovery Mix was the working athlete whose schedule (and lack of a team chef) means they can't always recover with "a freshly prepared meal made from scratch." Naturally, something made from Skratch is the only appropriate substitute. The Endurance Recovery Mix adds three essential R's to Riding: Refuel, Rehydrate, and Rebuild. Though Skratch rates it as priority two, Rehydration strikes us as the most obvious element, and the Endurance Recovery Mix takes the most direct route towards that end by replacing the water and salt you left on the road. The refueling step starts with the Endurance Recovery Mix's ratio of five grams of carbohydrates to every one gram of protein, which is a targeted blend that treats your post-workout body much more favorably than whatever's lurking in that week-old carry-out container behind the mustard in the fridge. This ratio prioritizes refueling by providing an easily consumed dose of calories in the form of carbs, but it goes a step further than microwaved leftovers of questionable provenance because it places special emphasis on replenishing glycogen--essentially stored fuel--in the muscles generally and the liver specifically. Re-upping on liver glycogen is particularly important for two reasons. First, glycogen stored in the liver is depleted during bouts of endurance training because it converts into sucrose that is then distributed to hungry muscles the body over. Second, the liver is often the victim of post-ride beverages. So we really owe it to the poor little guy. The protein element is not only a complete protein, it's also a naturally occurring ratio of whey protein and casein protein. Skratch uses this particular ratio to meet its Rebuild dictate because, according to the metrics recommended by the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations, it's one of the best sources for human digestion. The dairy-derived whey/casein protein featured here rate...

Skratch Labs Exercise Hydration Mix Skratch Labs Exercise Hydration Mix
Our comrades over at Competitive Cyclist dedicated nearly 1500 words to Skratch Labs' Exercise Hydration Mix when it first launched. We'll be a bit more brief --there's simply nothing else out there that we like more than Skratch for hydration. It's easy to get down, it doesn't cause GI distress, and we feel like we can go a bit harder for a bit longer than we can with plain water or other mixes. Engineered by Allen Lim and tested on some of the world's best cyclists, Skratch Labs Exercise Hydration Mix promises to regulate your body's electrolyte levels during exercise so that you stay more functional for a longer time. The bulk of this is accomplished via sodium, which Lim found to be the most important ingredient in fighting cramps, headaches, and power loss. None of that would mean anything, though, if it weren't easy on the stomach. Fortunately for us, the use of simple, real-food-type ingredients means that our bodies can digest it easily, and the absence of savoring agents (what you'll see called "natural flavors" on other mixes) means that you won't experience a weird, lingering aftertaste, just real fruit flavors that dissipate as you'd expect.

Skratch Labs Exercise Hydration Mix - 20 Pack Skratch Labs Exercise Hydration Mix - 20 Pack
Skratch Labs' Exercise Hydration Mix uses all natural ingredients to replenish the fluids and electrolytes you lose during intense physical exertion. Dr. Allen Lim developed this unique formula for pro riders plagued by headaches and upset stomachs caused by the artificial ingredients found in most sports drinks. Lim found that the key to maintaining hydration wasn't simply in electrolyte replacement, but rather relied on regulating the body's sodium levels, which is why the Exercise Hydration Mix contains a level of sodium that is similar to many emergency-grade rehydration formulas. And because Lim's formula uses all natural ingredients and is only flavored with real fruit, it's easy on your stomach while providing just enough calories to refuel your working muscles. It also tastes great, probably because it wasn't formulated with a list of chemicals we can't pronounce.

Skratch Labs Hyper Hydration Drink Mix Skratch Labs Hyper Hydration Drink Mix
First things first: Skratch Labs didn't make the Hyper Hydration Drink Mix for casual training or everyday drinking. It's designed specifically for endurance athletes who find themselves coated in white crust after a race, hooked up to an IV, or otherwise fresh out of salt after a long period of intense exertion. Each pouch contains as much sodium as a bag of potato chips and less sugar than almost any other drink mix, because that's what you really need. It's been proven that sugar isn't particularly important for recovery, so Skratch focuses on sodium. Excessive salt loss is dangerous, as well as performance inhibiting, so it's important to re-up after extended high-intensity exercise. Hyper Hydration doesn't taste particularly salty, though, because it's paired with a little glucose, natural mango flavor, and citrate, which has been shown to ease digestion and speed energy-creating pathways.

Skratch Labs Lemons and Limes Exercise Hydration Mix 3 Pound Bag Skratch Labs Lemons and Limes Exercise Hydration Mix 3 Pound Bag
We've all been there. Maybe you're grinding up a notoriously steep trail or completing a grueling century on the road. Your power output starts to wane as you sweat profusely, maybe even causing a pounding headache or painful muscle spasms as you become dehydrated under heavy duress. Your body is trying to communicate that you're not hydrating enough, or you could even be over-hydrating on water without replacing your body's electrolytes. The solution to these hydration woes lies within Skratch Labs Lemons and Limes Exercise Hydration Mix 3 Pound Bag, which is specially formulated for optimal hydration under the heavy duress of cycling and fitness sessions alike. Developed specifically by Dr. Allen Lim for professional cyclists, this hydration mix contains a relatively high sodium content, alongside added potassium for replenishing the electrolyte balance when you're sweating profusely on the road and trail. Added cane sugar helps to fuel working muscles during periods of high output. Real fruit flavoring derived from lemon and lime juice adds a light flavor that's satisfying without causing undue stress on your digestive system or overpowering to your taste buds. The lack of overly sweet flavoring is a godsend if you're the type to experience stomach-turning nausea or flavor fatigue with other hydration mixes. This 3-pound bag makes approximately 57 servings of 16-ounce hydration drink, dissolving easily in your water bottle and hydration pack.
