Surprising Foods High In Electrolytes

Getting electrolytes in isn’t just for when you’ve thrown up and have lost those stores or when you’ve just finished a major sweaty workout session. For instance, here’s what to eat before and after yoga. Still, your body needs a good electrolyte balance to maintain bodily function, so it’s important to get enough in the day to stay replenished, not just in these particular moments.

So, what are they, exactly? “Electrolytes are minerals in the body that carry an electric charge. These include sodium (Na+), potassium (K+), calcium (Ca2+), bicarbonate (HCO3-), magnesium (Mg2+), chloride (C1-), and hydrogen phosphate (HPO42-). Every single system depends on having a stable electrolyte balance, from the nervous system to the acid-base balance of our blood, to the contraction of our muscles,” says Dr. Michelle Davenport, PhD, RD, Co-Founder of Raised Real.

“That’s why severe losses of electrolyte balance, when we have major loss of bodily fluids such as with diarrhea or vomiting, can be fatal,” she adds. That’s also why it’s important to restore your electrolyte balance after a long run. (Or, when you’re hungover, too.)

Electrolytes also spark energy and jump-start the metabolism, thus reducing inflammation and preventing digestive problems. What’s more, electrolyte stores also help speed recovery from injury or sore/damaged muscles.

Though, most people think “Gatorade” when it comes to electrolytes, and you can’t sip a sugary sports drink all day. (Those calories and sugars add up.) Luckily, here are a few other sources of electrolytes to be mindful of. And they all have tons of other nutritional benefits, too!

Cactus Water
What’s that? Well, it’s good for you, so here’s the gist. Cactus water is high in electrolytes and can be super refreshing, so it’s a killer post-workout sip. “It is high in taurine, electrolytes and contains betalians. I also like the fact that it is low in sugar and half the calories of coconut water,” says Dr. Elizabeth Trattner.

Plus, it also has antioxidant properties and can improve your immune system, she says. And, if interested, here are a few other cool water trends to try now.

Scottsdale-Based True Nopal Cactus Water Launches #Hikehydrated Campaign To Remind Hikers To Stay Safe And Hydrated On Desert Hiking Trails This Visitor Season And All Year Long

The arrival of the Fall season means just one thing in Arizona and across the desert southwest: hiking season is officially here. Just because temperatures have started to trickle in a cooler direction, doesn’t mean that hikers need to hydrate any less when heading out on desert trails. In the last week 7 hikers needed to be emergency rescued from Camelback Mountain alone, and according to the Phoenix Fire Department, the majority of mountain rescues occur as a result of dehydration or heat exhaustion-related injuries and disorientation. To help remind hikers to stay hydrated and stay safe this hiking season, Scottsdale-based True Nopal Cactus Water is making it thier mission to remind hikers to always #HikeHydrated and will be hitting the popular hiking trails across the Valley for the #TrueNopalTrailTakeover campaign to fuel hikers with uber-hydrating and all natural cactus water dispensed ice cold from the True Nopal hydro-jetpack. Starting this weekend, the #TrueNopalTrailTakeover team will be helping keep hikers on Camelback Mountain and will hit numerous trails across our state every weekend through hiking season.

“When it’s over 100 degrees outside, drinking a lot of water is second nature for most people, but when cooler temperatures arrive it’s easy to forget that we still live in one of the driest climates in the world and keeping yourself hydrated, especially when you are doing any kind of physical activities outdoors in the sun is absolutely critical, “said Tom Zummo, Founder and CEO of True Nopal Cactus Water. “The start of hiking season also marks the start of visitor season, and while permanent desert dwellers know that we need to maintain a high level of water consumption all year, Arizona vacationers often don’t know just how much water they need to drink andbring with them if they plan to hit the trails on their Valley visit this year,” he said.

According to Authority Nutrition (www.healthline.com/nutrition) , humans need to consume at least two liters of water every day. For hiking, consider the circumstances before you head out on the trail and take at least twice as much water as you think you’ll need. Variables like weather, terrain, distance, physical fitness and acclimation to the environment you’ll be hiking in all play a major factor for people who are not used to desert conditions. Everyone should take extra caution to drink lots of water when hiking, but those not used to Arizona’s dry environment need to be extra vigilant in hydrating well before, during and after their outdoor activities.

To help remind everyone to #HikeHydrated this hiking season, True Nopal is challenging hikers everywhere to play a new kind of drinking game every time you hit the trails.

“When you see a cactus – drink and when you see another cactus – drink again. Every time you see a cactus on the trail, grab your water bottle and take a sip,” Zummo said. “Since there is cactus just about everywhere you look – it should be easy to remember to keep that water consumption going,” he said.

The company hopes that the visual reminder and #TrueNopalTrailTakeover will get hikers to think more like a cactus when fueling up outdoor activities. Indigenous to the Sonoran Desert, the prickly pear cactus is one of the most sustainable plants in the world that not only survives but thrives in the driest ecosystem on the planet. The prickly pear cactus has an exceptionally complex plant structure that not only effectively fuels itself and preserves its own hydration, but it also bears a fruit ‘Prickly Pear’, a vitamin-rich ‘superfruit’ that tastes a bit like a strawberry and kiwi hybrid. It’s the essence of Prickly Pear cactus that has made True Nopal Cactus Water the number one selling cactus water in the world. With less than half the calories and sugar in coconut water, True Nopal is 100% vegan and packed with electrolytes, potassium, magnesium, and antioxidants.

In addition to good old-fashioned H20, you boost your body’s ability to stay hydrated by adding cactus water to your pre, during and post-hike hydration regimen. Cactus Water is the ideal daily hydration beverage and helps your cells to absorb and maintain more nutrients and minerals than simply drinking water alone. Cactus water is the latest hydration must-have for pro-athletes, sports trainers, yogis, marathoners, sports nutritionists, and wellness gurus.

True Nopal is currently sold in the US, UK, Ireland, New Zealand and Guam in over 9,000 grocery and health food stores including Sprouts, Whole Foods, Albertson’s, Safeway, Kroger, Fry’s, Waitrose (UK), Tesco (UK) and many other retailers. The product also retails online and is listed as ‘Amazon’s Choice’ for the category on Amazon.com.

Many of the Valley’s premier hotels, resorts, restaurants and attractions also offer True Nopal Cactus Water for in-room beverage selections, spa and wellness programs and retail boutiques including The Phoenician Resort and Spa, The Westin Kierland Resort, Four Seasons Resort at Troon North, Hyatt Gainey Ranch Resort and Spa, JW Marriott Camelback Inn, The Scottsdale Plaza Resort, AC Hotel Tempe, and L’Auberge de Sedona. A number of restaurants and attractions also offer True Nopal Cactus Water including Farm and Craft in Scottsdale, Chloe’s Corner at Kierland Commons, Gertrude’s at the Desert Botanical Garden and The Grand Canyon Shops.

True Nopal believes in providing products that are great tasting and good for you that also support an active and healthy lifestyle, so keep an eye out for the #TrueNopalTrailTakeover team as you hit the trails this season and remember to #HikeHydrated all year long.

NBC News 12 Cactus Water vs coconut water

By: Kristen Keogh

There’s nothing more ‘Arizona’ than a cactus.

It turns out while we love looking at them, Arizonans might love drinking them even more.

A Scottsdale entrepreneur is turning the desert dwelling prickly pear cactus into a beverage that contains just the cactus and water combined.

“I was on a run on one of the amazing trails we have in Arizona and the prickly pear was in bloom and I thought it was amazing that this plant could grow and thrive and produce a fruit without any water in one of the harshest climates in the world,” said Tom Zummo, creator of TrueNopal. “I knew there was a reason it was there.”

He did some research and learned it has a ton of benefits beyond hydration. Tom says cactus water can keep your skin healthy, aid in muscle recovery and even cure a hangover.

“The prickly pear is the only plant in the world with all 24 known betalain antioxidants,” Zummo said.

He also says it has less sugar and fewer calories than sports drinks and coconut water. Plus it has a natural strawberry kiwi taste.

“I looked to fill that gap with something healthy that tastes good, low-calorie and low-sugar,” Zummo said.

The 12 News weather team warns when we’re facing excessive heat like we’re about to see (a warning is in effect from Saturday to Thursday), you should try to limit dehydrating beverages containing alcohol, caffeine and sugar.

In a coconut water we purchased at Sprouts, we discovered for every 8 ounces you consume, you’re getting 11 grams of sugar. For every 8 ounces of cactus water, you’re only consuming four grams of sugar and about a third of the calories.

Zummo’s company started in Scottsdale, where he grew up but it’s about to go global. He just partnered with Suntory, a multi-billion dollar company that will distribute his cactus water around the world.

He knows his fellow Arizonans need it the most, though.

“It will quench your thirst in this Arizona heat,” Zummo said.

You can buy TrueNopal at Sprouts, Whole Food, AJ’s and Amazon.com.

Scottsdale’s True Nopal puts Prickly Pear Water in the Spotlight

Like millions of workout enthusiasts around the world, Tom Zummo was well aware of the popularity of coconut water as a post-workout replenisher.

But one intense run on Lost Dog Wash Trail near the McDowell Mountains got him thinking about an alternative. It also altered his career and sparked a trend in the healthy-water space.

In 2013, Zummo started True Nopal Cactus Water, which makes True Nopal, the first and top-selling cactus-water brand in the world. In doing so, the Scottsdale entrepreneur also created the cactus-water category.

Since then, cactus water has become the “it” natural beverage and contends to de-throne coconut water as the industry’s king.

Desert inspiration

Nine months before launching his company, Zummo was running the trail. Prickly pears were in bloom and, like most Arizonans, he saw them everywhere from dusty paths in the wilderness to residential driveways. But this time, they caught his attention.

“I thought it was amazing that this plant could thrive and produce fruit in a desert without a water source,” Zummo said.

Like his other endeavors, the veteran business owner dove into this new project wholeheartedly. He discovered that prickly pear water has the same antioxidants as coconut water, as well as the electrolytes, vitamins and minerals that make coconut water so appealing to athletes.

It’s also the only plant in the world with all 24 known betalains, which are anti-inflammatories and clinically proven to reduce the effects of a hangover, Zummo said.

Bringing the drink to market

Zummo discovered that prickly pear was available on the market in pill supplement form but not in a pure, ready-to-drink beverage. As a result, he created TrueNopal, a lower-calorie (18 vs. 45 per serving), lower sugar (4 grams vs. 11 grams) and no-sodium alternative to coconut water. The flavor also tends to be more palatable for many.

Zummo played with adding agave and other sweeteners and flavors. But in the end, the 100 percent all-natural formula was the winner. The fruit is sourced from the Sonoran Desert, which spans Arizona, California and Mexico.

Tom Zummo was the pioneer of the cactus-water industry. He would like to see cactus water unseat coconut water as the industry king.
When True Nopal Ventures launched, it was the only cactus-water producer in the world. Within 90 days, its product went national. Now, Zummo said, there are as many as a dozen around the globe.

True Nopal is in 9,000 stores worldwide. Locally, it can be found at Whole Foods, A.J.’s Fine Foods, Fry’s, Safeway, Sprouts — which was the first to carry the beverage — and others. It can also be found in the United Kingdom,Ireland and New Zealand. A partnership with distribution powerhouse Suntory International promises to expand that reach. It’s also available via Amazon.

Growing demand has pushed organic and natural food and beverages into the mainstream, which has helped create traction.

“Before, you had to go into Whole Foods. But now, you can go into any Safeway or Fry’s and see sections for organic and natural,” Zummo said.

Coconut water still dominates a global $2.7 billion plant-based water industry, but sales of alternatives like cactus water are predicted to more than double by 2020, according to food and drink consulting firm Zenith Global.

And, industry publications like the Cassandra Report predict cactus water to be the next craze that is poised to “steal coconut water’s crown as the plant-based beverage of choice among young consumers.”

The company has experienced 100 percent growth each year since launching, Zummo said.

“They say timing is everything,” Zummo said. “We came at a time when people were more health conscious about what they are consuming. Coconut water paved the way.”

Educating consumers about cactus water

Yoga instructor and mindful fitness coach Donny Starkins said he’s been hooked on cactus water after being introduced to True Nopal eight months ago by his girlfriend. Starkins also gives it to some of his clients, who include yoga students and professional athletes who prefer the taste and nutritional value to coconut water.

“The fact that it’s better for you, it catches their attention. Most of my clients are very active,” said Starkins, who lives in Phoenix.

Starkins said he never liked the taste of coconut water so he mostly stuck to regular water after workouts before his transition to cactus water. He’s not a soda or juice drinker, so having that ice-cold hint of sweetness is a treat, especially after a hot yoga class.

“I constantly feel hydrated. To be able to have that natural fruit taste is good, but I know that it’s better for me, too,” he said.

Zummo’s True Nopal created a beverage category that focuses on the needs of a health-conscious consumer. It also has drawn attention to a plant that many Arizonans take for granted, but one that most people around the world have never seen in person.

Tom Zummo owns Scottsdale-based True Nopal, which produces and distributes prickly pear cactus water. He started the business in 2013.

“The prickly pear’s been used for thousands of years for its (beneficial) properties. … I’d like to think we helped bring the prickly pear into the spotlight and created some awareness,” he said.

True Nopal’s marketing plan incorporates an educational component to areas that are as far from cactus country as one can get. Recently, that included someone donning an 8-foot prickly pear cactus outfit and strolling the streets of London handing out samples to passers-by and answering questions about this exotic fruit from the desert West.

“In Arizona, we’re surrounded by cactus. It lines the streets, … it’s on your mind here. Most around the world have never seen a cactus in their life, let alone consumed one,” Zummo said.

He has started, owned and run several businesses spanning multiple industries, including restaurants, real estate and mortgage companies. But Zummo said this one in particular gives him a special boost.

“The main reward is when we get emails and testimonials from people saying how this makes them feel … to know we are providing them with a healthy alternative,” he said.

What: True Nopal Ventures.

Where: 8255 E. Raintree Drive, No. 300, Scottsdale.

Employees: Seven.

Interesting stat: Although U.S. soda sales fell for the 11th year in a row last year, coconut water sales rose 27 percent, according to market research firm Technavio.

Homegrown concept to turn Prickly Pear fruit into Water goes Global

By: FOX 10 Arizona

What started out as an idea is now turning into a bustling worldwide business for one Valley man.

“Prickly Pear is indigenous to Arizona,” said Tom Zummo, CEO of True Nopal Cactus Water. “We’re surrounded by it.”

Zummo’s idea was to turn Prickly Pear cactus into bottled water. He’s now joined forces with one of the biggest beverage distributors in the world. The Prickly Pear was something Zummo never really thought much of, until one day, he had an idea.

“It was just something that came to me while I was on my run through Scottsdale,” said Zummo. He wondered if he could take the Prickly Pear fruit, and create a drink out of it. This was back in 2013, when coconut water and other beverages like it were all the rage.

“I started doing some research to see what kind of benefits were behind the Prickly Pear, and it was amazing,” said Zummo. He found the juice was sweet, had less sugar than coconut water, and was packed with Vitamin C and electrolytes.

Zummo decided to start a business selling the water, and that’s when Zummo said True Nopal Cactus Water was born. The Prickly Pear fruit is harvested from the Sonoran Desert, pressed, processed and then bottled.

In the four years since Zummo started, the business has been growing. He recently signed a deal with Suntory, one of the largest beverage distributors in the world.

“The brand is like one of my children,” said Zummo. “You want to see your children excel and do magnificent things in their life, and my vision was to always see this be a global brand.”

True Nopal will now be distributed to stores around the globe

Coconut water paves the way for Scottsdale company selling Cactus Water

By: Justin Pazera

SCOTTSDALE, AZ – The clocks in Tom Zummo’s office are set to London, Tokyo and Scottsdale and you really could say timing has been everything to his business.

“Coconut water did pave the way for us to exist,” said Zummo, the owner of True Nopal. “It gave consumers a glimpse into plant waters.”

So think coconut water but not. Instead, the key ingredient in True Nopal is the prickly pear cactus.

“I went on a quest for something that tastes good that has the same benefits with lower calories and lower sugar,” said Zummo.

He says True Nopal water has half the sugar and calories compared to some coconut waters and it’s also high in antioxidants. It took them a while to come up with this particular recipe but it’s been a win with customers.

“We added agave. We added sugar and realized that we wanted to keep it true to form and we just left it in its original state,” said Zummo.

Packaging is done in other parts of the country but the headquarters is still in Scottsdale. Shipments for Amazon are also done right here in the Valley.

True Nopal is available on Amazon and also in local Fry’s, Whole Foods, AJ’s Fine Foods, Sprouts and Natural Grocers.

By: FEMALE FIRST

Cactus water is the perfect mix for any fruity cocktail or mocktail. Try it in your favourite cocktail this weekend. Cactus water’s sweet fruity flavour pairs well with vodka or tequila based cocktails.

9. It’s anti-inflammatory.
Due to the high levels of antioxidants and electrolytes, cactus water can reduce inflammation. Say goodbye to those under-eye bags and hello to glowing skin!

Wall Street Journal The Next Hot Trends in Food

By JULIE JARGON and ANNIE GASPARRO
Oct. 16, 2016 10:18 p.m. ET

The Next Hot Trends in Food

Not too far in the future, when you reach for a healthy drink, it might be full of water from a cactus.

The next healthy beverage: plant waters
The coconut-water fad appears to have unleashed a new category in the drink aisle: plant waters. From aloe water and maple water to artichoke water and cactus water, they are replacing more sugary sports drinks and artificially flavored waters that don’t appeal to consumers’ desire for nutritious and natural beverages.

While U.S. soda sales fell for the 11th year in a row last year, coconut water sales rose 27%, according to market research firm Technavio.

Some drinks are more likely to make it from health-food stores to convenience stores than others. Maple water and cactus water are more appealing than, say, artichoke water, since many people know cactuses contain water and view maple syrup as tasty.

Not only do these provide more flavor than plain water, they also tout health benefits beyond hydration. Aloe-vera juices claim to aid digestion and weight loss. Cactus-water makers say their drinks contain electrolytes and antioxidants.

Some of these plant waters are already popping up next to coconut water in mainstream grocery stores such as Kroger. The new plant waters are taking aim at the coconut beverage, advertising that maple water or cactus water contains significantly less sugar.

Fancy Water Taste Test

NICK HARRIS-FRY 7 JUL 2016
Left to right: What A Melon, Simplee Aloe, True Nopal Cactus Water, Vita Coco Coconut Water, Tree WaterTrue Nopal Cactus Water

Today’s water is so much more than a tasteless fusion of hydrogen and oxygen, with almost every kind of plant incorporated into special brands of H2O.

The claims these newfangled waters make are grand ones, especially when you consider that old-fashioned regular water is pretty good in terms of hydration and contains no calories. Coach decided to see if it really is time to give up on plain tap.

RECOMMENDED: 20 Things You Should Know About Water

What A Melon

Why: Watermelon water, with the pips handily removed. Like cactus water [below] it promises to hydrate you naturally, and also contains lycopene, a handy antioxidant primarily found in red fruit and veg. £2, available at Planet Organic and Wholefoods. whatamelonwater.com

The Coach says: Watermelons are the king of summer fruits, so having a drink containing their tasty essence minus the damnable pips is a real treat for sunny days.

Simplee Aloe

Why: Aloe Vera extract has apparently been drunk for 5,000 years, with benefits mooted to include healthier skin and an immune system boost. £1.69, available at Sainsbury’s, Asda and Waitrose. simpleealoe.com

The Coach says: Simplee Aloe comes in two flavours – grape & lemon and apple & mango – both of which are eminently acceptable, even if it feels a bit of a shame that neither reveal the mysterious taste of aloe.

True Nopal Cactus Water

Why: This prickly pear beverage promises to make you feel the power of the cactus. Fortunately that doesn’t mean sticking spines down your throat, but instead providing natural hydration with no added sugars. Like water. £1.69, available at Boots and Waitrose. truenopal.com

The Coach says: A sweet, slightly tropical taste. Coach did not feel the power of the cactus, which was both a disappointment and a relief, but True Nopal’s offering is undoubtedly refreshing.

Vita Coco Coconut Water

Why: The doyenne of fancy H2O, coconut water’s reputation is built on the claim it rehydrates you better than normal water due to the dose of vitamins and minerals it contains. That and the rumour it’ll help ease hangovers. £1.69, available at Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Waitrose. vitacoco.com/uk

The Coach says: An acquired taste. It’s a tad coconutty, not as much as you’d expect, and despite seeming pretty diluted at first, the cloying sweetness starts to grate halfway though the carton.

Tree Water

Why: Bottled sap from birch, maple and bamboo trees that promises plenty of natural nutrients. And the birch water is claimed to taste clean. Mmm… clean. £2.50, available at Boots, Planet Organic and Waitrose. sibberi.com

The Coach says: The birch water does taste clean, in that it doesn’t taste of much. The maple sap is a little sweeter, while the bamboo water was a tad woody. Take your choice: clean, sweet or woody.
