Understanding the science of hydration
Over the last decade, many athletes were so fed up with high sugar drinks with electrolytes pretenses, that they avoided these so called electrolyte drinks and simply relies on plain water. Water can only provide part of the hydration solutions, as it hydrates the body extracellulary (outside the cells) leaving the largest balance of your body’s fluids untouched, as extracellulary hydrations only impacts 20% of the body’s fluids, while intracellular hydration impacts 80%. While pure water will not cause diabetes as the high sugar drinks have been shown to, the need of the athlete is far optimal hydration, which water alone can’t provide. H2O Overdrive is precision combination of water protein, carbohydrates, electrolytes, specific amino acids essential vitamins and minerals that stimulate and promotes the uptake of the fluids and nutrient to be drawn “inside” the cells, resulting in intracellular hydration.
