What You Should Know
Athletes of all fitness levels need to hydrate. Hydration is a key to performance. Consuming water is great, but the body needs to replace electrolytes lost during exercise. Sports drinks tend to contain high levels of sugar, resulting in sugar rushes and subsequent crashes. A product guaranteed not to create the after workout crash is PowerIce. PowerIce is a frozen product with no caffeine, high fructose corn syrup or fruit juice. The ingredients are designed to merely replace electrolytes and hydrate the body. Throughout the website, there are claims of improved athletic performance due to consuming PowerIce. We will be the judge and inform you. Is PowerIce the real deal? We will see.

PowerIce is a frozen hydration product containing no caffeine, fruit juices or added sugars. The product is gluten-free, Kosher and proudly manufactured in the United States. PowerIce is similar to sports drinks without the additional sugar and calories. The ingredients contain a balance of sodium and potassium designed to replace electrolytes after athletic performance. The product is available on the website for approximately $1.50 for an ice bar or $9 for a pack of six.
What we noticed on the website was claims of improved performance. We followed the links to the studies and the results were not conclusive. Similar results from the testing can be achieved by eating several cubes of ice. We looked though an additional study provided by PowerIce and found athletes consuming ice slurry achieved the same results of participants who did not consume ice slurry.
If a company is going to include clinical trials, at least include studies that make a case for the product and not provide inconclusive evidence.

Is PowerIce convenient? Yes. Will PowerIce increase athletic performance? Maybe.
