Nutrition Guide - Hydration

Outside of racing and when in a big training block keeping your body well hydrated is a key to recovery and to stay healthy. By adding flavour and electrolytes to water, you trigger the body's natural reaction to drink more by up to 90%.

Stay hydrated

A high percentage of the population is either chronically dehydrated, or do not meet the necessary recommendations for a daily consumption of water. 

A great way to keep the body hydrated is to rehydrate using a product aimed at vitamin, mineral or electrolyte replacement instead of carbohydrate based energy drinks.

Vitamins and Protect drinks are designed to provide the body with vitamins and minerals that most of us don’t get enough of, plus the optimal balance of electrolytes for everyday activity

If you are using your hydration as a base fuel or for pre-run loading, there are a great variety of energy drink with 40g up to 80g of carbohydrate per serving, plus electrolytes.
