H2O Overdrive™ and H2O Overdrive HYDRATE™ have been developed based on science rather than simply marketing hype. Below you will find in depth information on why our products were formulated the way they were and why they are put together the way they are. With the majority of the other sports hydration beverages on the market today, the most detail you will find is some colorful lingo that tells you how good it tastes and that it replenishes electrolytes lost by your body when you sweat. Although these short and sweet marketing slogans may sound like scientifically research facts and the endorsement by big name superstar athletes is impressive - we believe our customers are smarter than that and that they DESERVE to know the details about what they are putting in their bodies and WHY!
Our Athlete Ambasassadors don't endorse our products because we give the huge paychecks to do so - they endorse the products because they use them. They believe in them. They feel the value of using them in the way they help them in their competitions and in their training. Take some time to read the articles and information in our Science section and you will have a much greater understanding of what hydration is - how your body works with it and what it needs in terms of hydration to perform at its best.
