During moderate to intense exercise, we may produce 1-2 litres (L) of sweat (that contains both fluid and important electrolytes) per hour depending on the exact environmental conditions. If such fluid losses are not replaced at an appropriate rate, dehydration occurs and performance can be impaired. In a dehydrated state, our body temperature rises, our heart rate increases, we deplete carbohydrate stores quicker and we perceive the exercise to be more intense. In essence, we have to work so much harder just to perform at the same speed or power output and thus, dehydration is considered a major cause of fatigue. In the context of maintaining hydration status, sodium is the most important electrolyte as it helps to stimulate thirst, improve fluid palatability and promote fluid absorption and retention. SIS GO Hydro meets your sodium requirements in an appropriate amount (0.7 grams per L) and concentration (30 mmol/L) that is scientifically proven to produce superior hydration compared with plain water.
To ensure hydration prior to training or racing, consume at least 500 ml of GO Hydro approximately 3-4 hours prior to your event with a further 250-500 ml at 2 hours prior to starting. During exercise itself, traditional guidelines advise a drinking strategy that prevents dehydration equating to > 2% loss in body mass. In practice, such a drinking strategy usually equates to 500 ml per hour and depending on the environmental conditions, your thirst will likely determine if your body requires more. If aiming to combine hydration and energy delivery, SIS GO Energy could be combined with the SIS GO Gels and GO Bar range to ensure both adequate carbohydrate and fluid delivery during exercise.
SIS GO Hydro contains precise levels of sodium and other electrolytes to hydrate you during intense exercise. With virtually no calories, use before and during sport. SIS GO Hydro should be used as part of a balanced diet and healthy life style. It is not intended as a weight loss product. When you need hydration with virtually no calories. It was developed to keep the British Sailing team optimally hydrated at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Simply drop a tablet into water for effective hydration, with virtually no calories, before and during sports.
