Why is our Carb structure better than the rest?
Nearly all sports drinks are carbohydrate based, but not all carbs are equal. We here at Hydro Power use a complex carb called maltodextrin and a fruit sugar called fructose. Much of the energy that we use during endurance sports comes from consumed carbohydrates that are converted into glycogen and stored in our muscles.
We have found the best way to replenish your energy(muscle glycogen) by having a 2:1 Glucose to fructose ratio. With that ratio, you utilize two transport systems by maximizing your energy uptake compared to the competitors. The first transport system is called the SGLT1. It is used to absorb glucose from the gut to the bloodstream. The second transport system is called the GLUT5. Its sole job is to transport fructose, so if you’re not consuming fructose then you’re not using the GLUT5 transporter… it’s like have an additional fuel line and not using it.
The bottom line is that Hydro Power dominates the competition by maximizing energy uptake by mixing Glucose and Fructose together.
Why do we have more Sodium than the rest?
From our scientific research, Sodium is the electrolyte that is most lost in sweat. That is why we have more sodium than the rest of the competition. We need to replenish our sodium to increase blood volume, so you have a better cardiovascular system, better stamina, better endurance, and better recovery from training. It also helps facilitate glucose and water absorption to perform your best.
Why do we have 63 MG of Potassium?
Potassium is critical for intracellular rehydration. It is also used for regulating heartbeat, muscle function, and neuron transmissions. We have 63 MG of potassium based upon athlete sweat rates.
Our electrolytes are based upon the most up to date sports nutrition research. Calcium and Magnesium are critical for muscle contractions, nerve impulses The bottom line is that we need to replenish our electrolytes to minimize arm pump, muscle cramps, and fatigue.
We use water soluble vitamins to help push athletes further. Once we’re topped off with our vitamins, we no longer utilize them. That is why we have a certain ratio of vitamins in our Hydro Power. Vitamin C is used for immune health and plays an important role in slowing down processes that cause cell damage in the body. Vitamin B3 has been proposed to increase the performance in high-intensity activities that demand the appearance of great moments of strength. Vitamin B6 is used for converting the foods we eat into energy our bodies can use during training. Vitamin B12 is needed in order to produce and maintain your blood cells, nerves, and DNA. In summary, Vitamin B is used to increase performance for an athlete by converting food into energy and maintaining a healthy
