“NatureZone certainly gives me the edge, legally! I use it in every facet of my training, race preparation, on race day and afterwards. It is part of my life.”
Chris Helmbold: Internationally acclaimed farrier and Provincial MTB racer.
“Competing in sub-vets, arguably the toughest category, every possible advantage is needed, with weight advantage (being able to ride light) being critical. Since I switched to using NatureZone Ionised Water to rehydrate before, during and after training sessions and races, my performance has improved dramatically. I can ride lighter, perform more efficiently and recover much quicker, resulting in a few more podium finishes this season.”

“NatureZone fitness waters keeps me well hydrated, and I really enjoy drinking a natural product that has all the essential nutrients needed for peak performance. “
Having raced all over the world and tried just about every sports drink on the market I can honestly say that NatureZone is in a class of its own. I am able to train and compete to the best of my abilities without having to worry about the onsets of saliva and phlem that so many of the other race fuels have given me in the past.
Not only do they taste great (in a variety of flavours) but are easy to drink both during training and on race days. Due to the fact that it is a natural, ionised, fructose based product i never have to worry about a sugar crash and dehydration, which i have found with so many other products on the market these days…
If only I could keep the NatureZone product a secret all to myself… 🙂
NatureZone has truly put itself into a class of its own in my books.

NatureZone really gave us the edge in our recent International Quadrangular Tournament between South Africa, Zimbabwe, Australia and the United Kingdom. It provided us with the stamina to go on to winning the tournament. It was thirst quenching and got us through the eight Chukkas that we needed to play. Our men’s team also raved about it and kept trying to steal ours…!

“Staying hydrated during training and racing is of utmost importance for that optimal competitive edge. Being able to rely on NatureZone to maintain hydration and electrolyte levels enables me to focus on physical and mental aspects of the run and not have to worry about metabolic imbalances.”
“Hydration plays a vital role for performing at peak levels. I drink NatureZone Structurerd Water as it hydrates faster than any other type of water, and assists hugely with my recovery.”

“Great tasting healthy products are so hard to find, but the difference with NatureZone is it’s free from all the artificial sugars and colorants, but it still tastes so good and keeps you hydrated and refreshed, never leaving that sticky feeling in your mouth that many other sports drinks do. NatureZone is my drink of choice when training or competing.” Chanelle xoxo

“Your Ionised Alkaline Water is absolutely amazing. I use it in my training sessions and mix it in my juice for racing. It certainly does give me an edge and a lift. I have improved my PB’s and race times consistently since starting to use it. I’d greatly appreciate it if you could send me some more straight away.”
Western Province Colours – Surfing
“I only drink NatureZone. It’s so refreshing and gives me the energy I need to compete at my best. Surfing competitively really takes it out of you, and you really need a good, rehydrating, balanced fluid replacement to avoid dehydration and improve performance. Apart from all that, it also just tastes so cool !!”
Competitive Bass angler & Winner of the 2012 Inanda Bass Classic.
“Spending 9 hours on the water, in the sun, exposed to the elements, not only drains your energy, but also tests your powers of concentration and resilience. Soaring summer temperatures, or frosty winter mornings, we are out there competing with the best in South Africa.
Nature Zone not only helps us to rehydrate and keep hydrated through the heat of the day, but also restores energy and keeps us focused and sharp when we need it most. A fantastic product, with no sugary side effects, Nature Zone has become a vital ally in competing at the highest level.”
Tracey Folker – Multi-Stage and Trail Running Specialist, Personal Trainer, Ultra-Distance Athlete.
“NatureZone Ionised Alkaline Water is the best thing that ever happened to my training regimen. I used to suffer badly with “dead legs” after an event, especially a multi-stage race, but now my recovery times are halved, my hydration problems are over, I get a decent night’s sleep during and after races, and I find I manage on much less water when racing, which means that as I carry less, my performance obviously improves. I am so impressed, I became an agent..!!”
