Maintaining proper hydration each day is vital as water is involved in every single process in the body. Because of this, you’ve likely heard a general recommendation to drink at least 8 cups of water a day. While consuming that recommended amount of water is a great way for the average person to stay on top of their hydration needs, there are instances where plain water isn’t enough. Hydration and rehydration depend not only on how much water you drink, but on the amount of water existing in your body from sweat, urination, and breathing.
Your Hydration formula contributes to better and more efficient hydration than plain water can, as it contains a blend of electrolytes to replenish mineral losses from the above processes. It also contains a small amount of carbohydrates, which enhances sodium and water transport across the upper intestinal wall and into the bloodstream. In other words, a solution of water + glucose + salt hydrates better than water alone. This is especially true if you are exercising for more than 1 hour, you sweat heavily during exercise, you are exposed to a hot environment for a long period of time, or if you are experiencing vomiting/diarrhea.
