While staying hydrated is key to a successful workout, water alone doesn't always cut it. At the same time, fueling your fitness with a sugary, artificial drink in the name of electrolytes can actually feel counterproductive to your wellness goals. There's a delicate balance between leveling up your hydration with something more powerful than water and ensuring you're doing so in a clean, feel-good way. The new BODYARMOR ZERO SUGAR strikes that balance by refreshing and replenishing your body without unnecessary additives. It also doesn't hurt that fitness enthusiasts like Olivia Culpo are touting it as their workout-drink-of-choice.

As the name suggests, the sports drink contains no sugar, but that alone doesn't necessarily make it unique. What helps set it apart from other zero-sugar options is the high levels of potassium, magnesium, and zinc. At 620 milligrams, the beverage's potassium content, for example, is almost eight times higher than other zero-sugar sports drinks, which is great news for those looking to increase their electrolytes. Potassium and magnesium are, after all, forms of electrolytes, which are essential elements of an effective sports drink. They're lost through sweat, but necessary to keep the body's fluid levels in balance and help maintain proper muscle functionality.

BODYARMOR ZERO SUGAR also has zero grams of carbs and no artificial sweeteners, flavors, or dyes, which is a big deal for people like Culpo who are highly conscious about what they're putting — and not putting — into their bodies. "It's important to feed my body only the best ingredients," she tells us. And for her, BODYARMOR ZERO SUGAR is part of that commitment. "Whether I'm working out or trying to increase my hydration, BODYARMOR ZERO SUGAR allows me to perform at my best and get through my day," she says.

No matter how beneficial it may be though, if a drink doesn't taste good, you're not going to reach for it. BODYARMOR ZERO SUGAR offers four flavors: fruit punch, lemon lime, orange, and cherry lime. Instead of relying on sugar and artificial sweeteners, the drink is made with real flavors and real sweeteners, such as stevia, to give it a taste that one reviewer says is packed with flavor. Another common comment is that the drink leaves no aftertaste, which is partly why it feels so refreshing.

Delicious flavor, potassium-packed electrolytes, vitamins, and antioxidants: BODYARMOR ZERO SUGAR checks all of the boxes. At the end of the day, it's as simple as this: it's a sports drink that has exactly what you want in a hydrating drink and nothing that you don't. If you're looking for a no-sugar option, it's a no-brainer.
