Drink up: A pair of new beverages
are meant to give you a lift.
COURTESY OF THE COMPANIES
THERE ARE WRONG THINGS to drink on the golf course (soda, milkshake, double shot of Jagermeister, for example) and better things. Here are two: The new Arnold Palmer Drive mixes fruit juice, superfruit extracts and
coconut water with its traditional half-lemonade/half-iced-tea formula.
BioSteel, developed by former Toronto Maple Leafs’ strength and conditioning coach Matt Nichol, is a supplement you mix with water. Its distinctive pink color comes from red-beet powder. BioSteel has been cleared for
use by Olympic athletes and players in the NHL, MLB and NBA, and it has
been getting some traction on the PGA Tour. Hunter Mahan and Jordan
Spieth are under contract to endorse it. BioSteel President John Celenza
says as many as 15 other tour players use the supplement. The drink contains no sugar, caffeine or other stimulants, he says, and aims to provide
consistent energy and focus through its mixture of branch-chained amino
acids, electrolytes, organic minerals and B vitamins. —Mike Stachura
