SPORTS REHYDRATION DRINK BASE

  • Made in New Zealand from local and imported ingredients.

 

More performance gains can be achieved through optimal hydration during exercise than can be obtained through high carbohydrate ingestion:

  • Dehydration by as little as 2% can decrease performance in 5km and 10km races by 6-7% (Armstrong 1985)
  • Dehydration by 3% will reduce overall performance (most aspects) by 10% (Maughan 2000)

 

Sustained maximum power output

Hydration fluids and not calories, will sustain maximum power output for longer.

High-sugar sports drinks will result in an insulin response that actually reduces blood sugar levels and lowers energy levels. By contrast, maintaining fluid to working muscles will improve performance outcomes. PowerAmp Rapid Hydration provides fluid to working muscles faster than water.

 

Maintenance of thermo-regulation

Staying cool and avoiding a heat build-up in working muscles, improves performance.

Exercising muscles generate heat, which the body must carefully regulate. Body temperature is regulated through sweat. The rate of loss of body fluid and essential minerals from sweat can often be greater than the rate of water that can empty from the stomach into the intestines where the fluid is absorbed into the body. PowerAmp Rapid Hydration speeds up the movement of liquids from the stomach into the intestines and then further speeds up the rate of absorption of water into the body for optimal hydration.

 

Improved mental acuity and cognitive performance

A 2% reduction in body weight from seat and loss of body fluid results in an 11% reduction in physical performance and up to a 20% reduction in mental acuity and cognitive performance.

Many high-performance sports often require both physical and mental performance. Dehydration robs an athlete of both aspects of performance during the critical final phases of competition where races are won or lost. The ability to concentrate and tactically out-think your competitors can result in better performance outcomes.

 

Faster recovery with reduced muscle fatigue

Better hydration means the body can recover faster and quickly remove harmful metabolites from fatigued muscles after exercise.

An increased blood volume from better hydration means that the heart is under less stress and can pump fluid to muscles more efficiently. This improved blood flow provides tired muscles with essential nutrients for repair and removal of harmful by-products produced while the muscles were under heavy load.
