Etixx Sport Hydro Tab contains electrolytes to replace what you lose through sweat. During exercise, your body sweats to help regulate body temperature. This loss of fluid can be extremely detrimental to performance and therefore athletes must compensate by drinking to replace lost fluids. Without replacing lost fluids, it is likely that dehydration will occur. This can cause a headache, overheating and in serious cases a loss of concentration and ability to perform.
When we sweat, we not only lose fluid but we also lose key electrolytes namely sodium,potassium, magnesium, calcium and chloride. These electrolytes all have important physiological functions and therefore athletes should replace these alongside the fluid that they are losing. In particular, sodium is very important for athletes to consume as it plays a role in the stimulation of thirst and in fluid retention.
The Etixx Hydro Sport Tab allows the replenishment of 4 major electrolytes (sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium) in a similar proportion to what we lose through sweat. This low calorieeffervescent tablet is specially formulated to prepare a sports drink which could help athletes to rehydrate without the extra carbohydrates. The tablet is designed to help prevent dehydration and also restore fluid balance in hot and humid conditions.
