While the Championnat de France Raid Jeunes took place on 6 and 7 May 2023, the Natural Origins Sud Raid Expérience was sucecessfully held on 8 May in the village of Ancelle, in the heart of the Hautes-Alpes department.


Natural Origins and Sud Raid: a winning sport partnership


During this event, we supported the participants both with our sports nutrition products and our human involvement.

In order to ensure the smooth running of this day, our colleagues volunteered to distribute So Classy teas as well as snacks from the Lifestyle range in the form of sliced strawberries and bananas; the motto of our stands was: "Surpass yourself naturally!" In addition, Marc Roller, our director, wanted to personally participate in the race.

Baobab Workout on-the-go: the ideal natural sports nutrition product


With a one-time registration fee that included a two-person team commitment for the race, a welcome pack, two card games and two meals, participants were also able to discover and enjoy Natural Origins drinks after their efforts.

This was the perfect opportunity to launch our Baobab Workout product in its new format: a 30g single-dose sachet to be diluted in 500ml of water or in a botanical drink for more creaminess.

Natural Origins Sud Raid Expérience: for fulfilled athletes


Highly anticipated by runners, our 100% botanical-based powdered drink to be reconstituted was much appreciated, especially for its even more pleasing texture and its comforting banana taste. Dairy-free containing no artificial colours or flavours, Baobab Workout is naturally tasty thanks to its fruit content. Rich in vitamins and minerals (Vitamin C, Magnesium, Potassium and Calcium) exclusively derived from botanicals, our drink contributes to improving performance and replenishing the body's mineral content.

The baobab fruit pulp is the ally of athletes thanks to its exceptional prebiotic fibre content. Indeed, the slow absorption of sugars from fruits does not cause a peak of glycaemic index. Our mixture of botanical powders constitutes thus the best means to hydrate easily during physical effort and to recover in an optimal way.

To congratulate the participants for their endurance and success on the races, we gave out bags filled with Lifestyle and So Classy products.

There is no doubt that this mutual experience between athletes and Natural Origins is worth repeating!
