ISOPOWER + L-Carnitine Elder and Lemon flavored / 500ml

More information:

The main role of isotonic drinks is to compensate for the loss of fluids and minerals. In an intense exercise fluid loss can reach up to several liters. Furthermore, they lose a lot of mineral salts and vitamini. When loss up to 2% of body weight, physical efficiency decline drastically. Dehydration has already occurred.

How should I drink?

You should not wait to feel thirsty, because by then it is too late for a correct hydration.

It should be noted that in an average physical activity body can lose 40 to 50 ml of water per minute through the skin / sweating / and upper respiratory / breathing /. On the other hand the body can not absorb more than 25 ml of water per minute.

So you should drink each about 15 minutes, even without feeling thirsty. Drinking should be done in small sips during the actual load, avoiding the flooding of large amounts of stomach fluid.

At what temperature?

The ideal temperature for this type of drink is between 5 and 9 degrees Celsius.

Composition of the isotonic drinks

The basic element is water. However, when it contains dissolved mineral salts and carbohydrates in specific ratios, its absorption proceeds more fully.Other than that carbohydrates and energy supply to maintain the physical activity. The main minerals are: sodium, calcium, potassium, magnesium. Furthermore, phosphorus and chlorine are present.

The main criterion that determines whether an isotonic drink has the amount osmolarity.It gives an idea of ​​the concentration of solutes and must have a value between 280 and 300 mOsm / l.This is the osmolarity of blood plasma.

Only under these conditions the cell will absorb as much water as it needs, without unnecessarily pressure.In that way remains water-salt balance inside the cell, which ensures the normal course of biochemical processes in it. The result of all this is to maintain optimal physical activity for a long time.

In conclusion:

An isotonic drink, it should contain:

  1. Carbohydrates between 4% and 6%
  2. Mineral salts: sodium, calcium, potassium, magnesium in certain ratios

Only drinks of this type efficiently quench thirst and successfully solve the problem of dehydration.
