Q Hydration founder Jason May (Not the person who did 100,000 m+ elevation)
We founded Q Hydration (formerly Q Energy) in Vancouver, BC a few years ago. With a lot of research and a lot of development, we created an all natural low sugar and low caffeine energy and sports drink that supports overall health and, best of all, tastes great. Our customers are incredibly active, strong, inspiring people. We drink lots of Q Hydration ourselves to keep up with them.
Q Hydration is inspired by naturally awesome British Columbia. With such a huge playground, we all need a little extra energy to take advantage of it. Use Q Hydration to ski the mile of vertical at Blackcomb, to achieve a new personal best on the Grouse Grind, to make the most of your yoga session, to ride the waves on an epic day when it is going off at Jordan River, to survive the Lower Crippler, or to enjoy a walk around the seawall. If these places don't sound familiar, we invite you to visit BC and have a great time in our incredible back yard. But whatever you do and wherever you are, Q Hydration is a great choice.
We developed Q Hydration to help you do all that and more without compromise. If you're like us, your days are full. Not only are you being called by the great outdoors, but you have a job to succeed at, a family to love and care for, friends to catch up with and not enough time to fit it all in. You can always use some extra energy, a little boost, or a lift to keep you going, but you don't want to suffer the hammer blow of a sugar crash or the squeezing headache of caffeine withdrawal as a result. Q Hydration is unique because it delivers healthy energy. You can take it without having to regret the whole affair a few hours later. Q Hydration is actually good for you.
Q Hydration is named for Quercetin - the unique ingredient that makes Q Hydration so naturally awesome. Quercetin is a natural antioxidant found in fruits, plants and vegetables, and delivers energy at a cellular level. Quercetin shares the anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties of other antioxidants, but studies have also shown that it can provide energy by increasing the body's natural ability to convert calories into energy. In other words, instead of simply adding more calories, Q helps you burn the calories you already have more efficiently. It isn't a quick fix or a short-cut; it is a healthy choice for more energy.
The benefits of Q go beyond delivering healthier energy in a better way. In addition to Quercetin, Q also features the perfect blend of ginseng, rhodiola, gingko biloba, green tea and vitamins, making it ideal to take every day. What's more, to keep you going when you're moving and help you recover when you're not, Q Hydration offers electrolytes to keep your system balanced.
