You will see that your Hydration formula contains a small amount of sugar and sodium. While we want to be sure that our overall intake of both of these nutrients does not exceed recommendations, their presence in small amounts is incredibly beneficial for optimal and accelerated hydration. When your body works hard and begins to heat up it cools itself down by sweating. Sweat is primarily composed of water, salt, and iodine, so when we sweat, our body removes these components. The sodium present in your Hydration formula helps to replenish those sodium losses. Sodium is an essential electrolyte that helps regulate the amount of water that is in and around cells. If you fail to replace the sodium you’ve lost through sweat, your body will start to pull it from your tissues which can lead to muscle cramping, dizziness, and fatigue.. The small amount of cane sugar found in each serving of your Hydration formula enhances sodium and water transport across the upper intestinal wall and into the bloodstream.
