I had the opportunity to try out ZYM recently.
They were great and not only sent me two tubes to try but also a green water bottle. and a sticker that my daughter promptly claimed as her own. As far as I am concerned I can't have enough water bottles. My husband doesn't agree with me on this one.
So.. what is ZYM? It is a electrolyte replacement drink for athletes like runners and cyclists. They also add B vitamins and are super low in sugar. The lemon-lime has 1 gram and only 7 calories, while the berry has 4 calories and no sugar. You can check out the product comparisons HERE.
To drink it, just add one tab to 16- 20 ounces of water depending on your preferred sweetness level. I prefer not sweet, so I tend to go more for 20 ounces. Those 4 ounces really do make a big difference.
The Endurance is Lemon-Lime flavored and was the one I thought would like the least for the simple reason that I am usually not a lemon-lime fan. Turns out it was my favorite flavor. I loved that it was not overly sweet tasting.
The berry or Catapult was a lot sweeter, but then I realized I only mixed with 16 oz vs 20 the first time I tried it. I like it better with 20 ounces. I like lighter not sweet flavors when I am running. The Catapult is different because it also has 100 mg of caffiene and 200 mg of guarana for added pep to your step.
I have found it on Amazon.com for as low as $6.60 a tube. Not bad and comparable to what I usually use.
I have used it on runs of up to 8 miles so far for the past 2 weeks. I give it a two thumbs up. I wish there were more flavors because I do enjoy these two a lot but also know that I like variety. They do make an orange flavor that is sweetened with stevia and has zero calories. I think I shall try that next.
If you want to check them out, they are on Facebook HERE,

Anyone else tried ZYM? The question I have is..how do you say it? Does it rhyme with time or tim? My vote with time.
I was sent ZYM to try out free and was in no other way compensated for this post. The opinions within are mine.
