REHYDR8 SPORT DRINK
REHYDR8 is an isotonic drink (isotonic must have 3 functions; rehydrate body cells, replenish electrolytes and contain an optimum level of carbohydrates at 6-8%);
has an optimised carbohydrate combination for rapid and sustained energy;
contains optimised levels and ratios of electrolytes including both major and trace minerals;
contains optimised levels and ratios of BCAAs to prevent muscle depletion;
contains glucosamine to strengthen cartilage and bones;
Contains magnesium known to help maintain normal muscle and nerve function. Keeps heart rhythm steady.
An athlete’s body is 50-60% water. At rest we lose 100ml per hour, but we lose 1500ml per hour during vigorous exercise. Reduced hydration means overheating, reduced oxygen availability and reduced performance.
A 1500ml loss is 2% in body weight for 75kg athlete, this loss corresponds to a 10% drop in physical capability;
A 4% loss in body weight corresponds to a 25% drop in physical capability;
A 9-12% loss in body weight can lead to death.
Fluid replacement facts
The speed of fluid replacement is slower than fluid loss during exercise
The speed of fluid replacement is determined by rate of stomach emptying and intestinal absorption
Higher carbohydrate concentration and calorie content leads to slower intestinal fluid absorption
Balance between fluid and energy depending upon need
Electrolytes increase fluid replacement
Electrolytes are lost as sweat as but more slowly than water
Sodium, potassium and chloride are the most important minerals – essential to the control of tissue hydration – required to maintain acid-base balance in cells
Sodium increases water absorption, by co-transport, and decreases water excretion, by maintaining osmotic pressure.REHYDR8 is the only drink in the world that supplies not only essential minerals and elements, but also micro and trace minerals that are lost through exercise and sweat. Micro minerals are essential to optimum body function, including the production of energy. For example, the production by the body of the coenzyme Q10 requires more than a half dozen different trace minerals. Coenzyme Q10 is in every cell and is essential for biochemical energy and heart function during exercise. Maintenance of correct levels of these trace minerals is essential to optimum physical performance.
A variety of minerals are lost during sweating and therefore trace minerals should also be replaced after prolonged exertion.
Helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function
Keeps heart rhythm steady
Supports a healthy immune system
Keeps bones strong
Helps to regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure
Known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis
Preventing and managing disorders such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
Glucosamine an amino sugar that plays a major role in cartilage formation and repair. Glucosamine stimulates the production of water-binding glycosaminoglycan and proteoglycans, two essential building blocks of cartilage and also inhibits the production of chondrocytes, enzymes that break down cartilage
Glucosamine also appears to suppress the destructive enzymes collagenase and phospholipase. In effect, supplementing with glucosamine is akin to giving your body the raw materials it needs to rebuild cartilage – naturally
Glucosamine helps to form tendons, ligaments, cartilage and nails. Glucosamine has so few side effects primarily because it is already a natural component of the body. The only problem with glucosamine is that its natural production in the body seems to fade with time, injury and aging
Supplementing with glucosamine can help replace the deficit and restore the proper glucosamine balance
glucosamine in REHYDR8 is high quality glucosamine – greater than 99.9% pure and produced using pharmaceutical grade manufacturing standards.
BCAAs (Ile, Leu, Val) are essential amino acids
Assist in preventing muscle depletion during exercise
Protein breakdown increases and manufacture slows during and immediately after exercise
Protein stores in muscle deplete and performance suffers during exercise
Consuming BCAAs decreases muscle protein breakdown
Consuming BCAAs decreases central fatigue due to 5-HT improving physical and mental performance
BCAAs should be consumed prior to, during and after prolonged exercise.
