Trainade Hydration is what is known as a hypotonic solution, meaning it is less concentrated than the blood. Concentration is measured in osmolality, and the osmolality of the blood is typically 280-300mOsm/kg. Trainade Hydration has an Osmolality of 265mOsm/L.
Unlike traditional sports drinks that are isotonic or hypertonic (the same concentration or higher than blood), a hypotonic solution moves much more rapidly from gut to the blood and is then more rapidly absorbed by the cells, promoting faster hydration.
The lower carbohydrate level of Trainade Hydration (2-3% compared to 6-8% in Sports Drinks) allows for more rapid emptying of the fluid from the stomach for faster rehydration. This lower concentration of carbohydrate also causes less stomach and gastrointestinal discomfort compared to typical sports drinks.
Unlike many competing oral rehydration solutions that use combinations of artificial sweeteners, Trainade Hydration uses completely natural sweeteners in order to provide its great taste.
Trainade Hydration utilises Monk Fruit (Siraitia Grosvenorii), a natural fruit native to Southeast Asia and Stevia (Stevia rebaudiana), a natural plant native to parts of South America to sweeten our beverage to help support your hydration needs. These sweeteners are both calorie free.
