ERW Active can be summed up by their mission statement:
"No compromises. No cheap additives. And no excuses. Just the best tools … for the race of life."
Hannah Grant and Dr. Stacy Sims quickly agreed on three things after meeting at the Tour de France in 2013.
That there weren’t a lot of women working in pro cycling. That even the greatest riders in the world had ridiculously outdated views on race nutrition (er, pasta with ketchup, please).
And, that figuring out performance solutions for a grueling sport that involves spirit-sapping days on two wheels could also provide answers to conundrums found in more conventional forms of travel … like jetlag.
At that time Hannah, one of Denmark’s finest chefs, was revolutionizing how elite cyclists refuel, bringing her Michelin-star restaurant experience to the Tour. She championed balanced nutrition, intricately adapted to the specifics of each stage and the physiology of every racer. That approach spawned two cookbooks – and the Amazon Prime docu-series “Eat. Race. Win.” (If you haven't seen it you should....it's brilliant!)
Stacy, a pioneering author on how nutrition affects male and female athletes differently and an acclaimed TED talk expert, was working dual roles at USA Cycling and Stanford University, implementing her groundbreaking research on hydration. Her goal: bust through the misconceptions put forward by the sugar-laced sports drink market, dominated by one product.

Key Ingredient Facts:
Rhodiola Rosea Extract- This ingredient is well known to relieve stress, reduce mental fatigue, improve sleeping pattern and insomnia.
Tart Cherry Extract- An extract that is used to increase sleep time and efficiency by increasing the bioavailability of tryptophan, while also increasing your body’s production of melatonin!
Ashwaganda Extract- The leaves of this well-known plant contain a compound called “Triethylene Glycol”, which induces sleep and improves overall sleep quality.
L-glutamine- A crucial Amino Acid that acts as a catalyst for the production of GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid), which is a brain insulator. Sufficient production of GABA lowers unwanted signals and interactions in the brain, which helps calm the mind, reduce anxiety and optimize sleep behavior!
