Global Odyssi adds Honey Stinger Organic Energy Gel and Activated Charcoal to their Surfers First Aid Kits

May 13, 2015

We are constantly looking forward and improving on our first aid kits, whether it's the supplies, bags or the handbook that goes with them. Always seeking out new supplies that are more effective and safer to use on wounds and ailments we encounter while on a surf trip or at home.

We recently made a few changes to our supply list in our kit line that included removing Hammer Heed electrolyte drink mix packets, antacid tablets and anti-diarrhea tablets. The reason for the change is that there are a lot of lab developed synthetics in these two products and we finally found two alternatives that are not only 10x more effective, but are completely organic compounds.

The replacement to Hammer Heed electrolyte drink mix is a product from the company Honey Stinger which is from their Energy Gel line called "Organic Gel Acai & Pomegranate". This gel does double time as fuel for your athletic endeavors and contains electrolytes to keep your body from dehydrating and cramping up. The main ingredient in this gel is organic honey, which has been shown to boost energy during endurance activities while providing antioxidants and vitamins at the same time.

We have also replaced the anti-diarrhea tablets and antacid tablets with activated charcoal. The replacment is activated coconut shell charcoal capsules from Charcoal House. Each capsule contains 260mg of activated charcoal in capsules that are all-vegetable, gluten free, Non GMO with no fillers.

Activated charcoal is known to absorb organic toxins, chemicals and poisons before they can harm the body. It's even used in hospitals in large doses for certain types of poisoning. The reason we added it to the supply line up in place of these two supplies is its ability on how powerful activated charcoal is as an emergency decontaminant in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, which includes the stomach and intestines. It is estimated that activated charcoal reduces the absorption of poisonous substances by 60%. This means it is the perfect supply to treat food poisoning, upset stomach, colic, nausea, vomiting, acid indigestion, gas, and more.

We are excited about these two recent changes and continue to strive to make our kits with safer and more effective supplies to keep Global Odyssi at the forefront of surfers first aid kit development and to keep our users surfing in the water instead of surfing on the couch recovering.
