Bindi was created in Busselton, Western Australia by Belinda Dennis – a veterinarian, mum and triathlete who saw the need for healthy, natural sports nutrition in the Australian market. The name ‘Bindi’ was actually Belinda’s nickname as a child. To read the full Bindi story click here
Absolutely! This is why our Sample Packs are so popular – so you can decide which will be your favourite flavour
The most common feedback from customers who have started using Bindi is that the flavours are so much better; they have even energy throughout the day; and they avoid gut issues they have had in the past with other products. Plus, they love that they are natural, healthy, Australian Made, and lower sugar than most other sports nutrition brands.
Absolutely. If you are doing any kind of exercise for an hour or more then Bindi Natural Sports Hydration will help your performance. If you are exercising or shorter duration or at lower intensity then our sugar-free Bindilyte is perfect to hydrate you. Our wellness products such as Proteins and Supergreens are suitable for anyone looking to improve their health and well-being whether they are an athlete or not!
Yes. Try diluting Bindi Natural Sports Hydration to half strength for kids, or use our Sugar-Free Bindilyte. Some good tips for dental health in kids (and all of us) is to rinse your mouth out with water after using Bindi and also brushing teeth regularly.
No. We believe that your body has enough work to do without processing these chemicals as well.
Bindi Natural Sports Hydration has a combination of carbohydrate sources: Maltodextrin (easy to digest and metabolised slowly) and Fructose (fruit sugar which is absorbed quickly). This combination of carbohydrates in a 2:1 ratio is proven to increase performance by 55% in athletes.
Bindi replaces all the important electrolytes you sweat out: Sodium (at higher levels than most sports drinks), Potassium and Magnesium (to support muscle function).
Having enough sodium will replace your losses through sweat, it will drive your hydration (it actually helps you absorb fluid) and help you retain and distribute fluid adequately.
Bindi is different for many reasons: It has combined carbohydrates which are proven to improve your performance, and is easy to digest which means you will have all day energy without gut issues.
Bindi is formulated with the ideal electrolyte mix for Australian conditions and it contains 30% less sugar than major sports drinks.
Athletes love our delicious natural flavours and the fact that Bindi is Australian Made and owned.
One serve of Bindi provides 27g of carbs. This is when 2 scoops of Bindi are mixed with 500ml water. This will give a carbohydrate percentage of 5.4% which is low enough to avoid gut distress which can occur with some sports drinks.
We recommend one serve of Bindi per hour of intense exercise. This will give 500ml fluid and 27g of carbohydrates. You may need roughly 750ml of fluid and 30-90g of carbohydrates per hour, so we recommend adding extra carbohydrate sources and water for big training sessions and races (try a banana, vegemite sandwich, energy bar or gel).
Bindilyte is simply our custom Bindi electrolytes without the carbs. It is a sugar-free electrolyte powder – perfect to add to your water any time of day to replenish what your are sweating out. Use it for work, rest or play!
Bindilyte is great for light training sessions or shorter sessions. After any training session it is important to rehydrate and recover, and Bindilyte is the perfect low-sugar, low calorie option for that. It’s safe for kids too!
If you are training hard for more than an hour, it is best to use our Bindi Natural Sports Hydration as it supplies you with carbohydrates as well as electrolytes.
Pea Protein is easy to digest, it will keep you feeling fuller for longer than whey, and it doesn’t create inflammation in the body.
Organic Pea Protein will kick-start lean muscle development and recovery and is easy to mix with water or various milks.
Many protein powders will have added chemicals, fillers and incredible nutritional claims. Don’t be fooled by the hype and a long list of ingredients of some protein powders.
Using any type of protein in your recovery window will kick start your recovery. However the benefits of using a plant based protein are clear:
- they are easier to digest;
- they cause less gastrointestinal issues;
- will keep you feeling fuller for longer;
- they are less likely to cause inflammation in the body.
We know that whey proteins have been shown to play a potential role in the development of some cancers. Some people aren’t able to tolerate dairy foods, and so using a plant-based protein can be a great health choice.
Most people will get enough protein in their diet, but if you get the timing and type of protein right you can really boost your recovery. Your body has a neat little recovery window for up to an hour after an exercise, so using protein in this window will kick-start lean muscle development. This will initiate recovery from the exercise induced trauma to your muscles and prepare you for the next session. Science show the best recovery fuel is carbs and protein in a ratio of 4:1 to minimize muscle breakdown, replace glycogen stores and support the immune system.
You may eat well, train hard, recover well but find all of that plus work commitments, family and friends can get very tiring. It’s also very challenging for your immune system to keep up. Supergreens are like a supercharged multivitamin, they include antioxidants for immune support and will help you handle stress, illness, fatigue and a heavy training load much better.
Supergreens can be horrible, earthy tasting and hard to stomach. That’s why we blended ours with fresh greens and superfruits and added a delicious bust of cranberry. They are yummy enough to drink on their own with water as an everyday supplement to your diet. You can also add to a juice or a smoothie to support your immune system and fight stress and fatigue.
Supergreens are definitely an everyday supplement to your diet. Add it to water a juice or smoothie each day to support your immune system and fight stress and fatigue. Try adding it to beetroot juice for an extra burst of nitrates to increase your performance.
Taking care of your gut health has never been more important due to the incredible complexity of the gastrointestinal system and its importance to our overall health. Much research over the past two decades has shown a strong link between gut health and your immune system, mood and mental health, hormonal disorders, skin conditions and cancer. A combination of healthy gut foods, a gut friendly lifestyle such as plenty of sleep and low stress, plus a gut health supplement can benefit your gut health greatly.
Bindi Digest Blend is designed to stimulate healthy digestion and increase your uptake of essential nutrients. It is enriched with anti-inflammatory spices such as turmeric, aloe vera powder and ginger, and is also abundant in gut-friendly prebiotics such as inulin. A happy gut with low levels if inflammation is better at absorbing and utilising fluid, electrolytes and nutrients, thereby improving your general health and athletic performance too.
