Aviate is caffeinated water. It sounds funny when you first hear it, but having drank it quite a bit throughout training I am a proud supporter of the beverage! According to the newest issue of Runner’s World Magazine, the pain you feel in your body from runs between 15 to 22 miles can be offset by caffeine. As a diabetic runner, it is important for me to hydrate with non-sugary drinks and the added caffeine from Aviate helps to boost my energy and also helps to reduce the pain of running long distances. To quote the article, “Researchers believe that caffeine blocks the brain’s receptors for adenosine, a chemical release in response to inflammation”. To read further, grab the October 2012 issue and turn to page 34. Aviate tastes like bottle water and is a great alternative to diet coke or coffee. Look for it and try it out for yourself.
