HEALTHY GUMMIES FOR RUNNERS | By Hubert Cormier
Are you a runner looking for a snack that’ll give you the energy boost you need to finish your course and replenish your electrolytes? These gummies are exactly what you need! They are a completely natural source of carbohydrates and contain sodium and potassium, two very important electrolytes during physical activity.

That’s why it’s important to replenish your electrolytes when you work out. These little gummies pack all you need to make sure you’re not short on these minerals. Try them as soon as possible!
