What are hydration powders?
Why use our hydration powders?
Hydration powders contain two important ingredients: electrolytes and sugar. Electrolytes are positively or negatively charged minerals that help you maintain fluid balance throughout your body. They are lost through sweat and urine, and must be replenished.
The electrolytes that you sweat and pee out in the largest amounts are sodium (Na+) and chloride (Cl-), the main components of salt (NaCl). Sugar accelerates the hydration process by helping transport these electrolytes into your cells.
Hydration powders can help you rehydrate during and after exercise. Salt and sugar work together to offset fluid losses through sweat, which occurs especially during intense exercise in the heat. Electrolytes are also lost through vomiting and diarrhea. If you are sick and experiencing either of these symptoms, using hydration powders can help you recover faster.
Finally, many people use hydration powders after drinking alcohol. Alcohol is a diuretic, meaning it makes you pee. If you do not replenish the electrolytes lost this way, you may have a hard time staying hydrated.
You should use our hydration powders in particular because they are the only hydration powders made specifically for people with sensitive stomachs. Other hydration powders contain anti-caking agents, artificial and natural flavors, artificial sweeteners, preservatives, and sugar alcohols, all of which are hard to digest.
How to use our hydration powders?
Using our hydration powders is easy. Simply mix 1 tablespoon of our hydration powders with 1 cup of cold water. During or after intense exercise in the heat, you may need 2 or more servings depending on the duration of the workout. You can also add our hydration powders to smoothies for extra electrolytes.
