GU HYDRATION DRINK TABS - FAQ
WHAT IS HYDRATION?
Hydration is defined as the process of absorbing water. The human body is roughly 60% water, so hydration is crucial for everything you do daily, especially exercise. Without enough hydration, your body lacks the water levels necessary to function optimally, this is called dehydration.
WHAT IS PROPER OR OPTIMAL HYDRATION?
Athletes should generally be supplementing water with electrolytes both DURING activity as well as throughout the day. Good hydration is always important, but particularly in the days and weeks before an event or after a hard workout. Use GU Hydration Drink Tabs whenever, wherever, and you'll see a boost in preparation, sustenance, as well as recovery.
HOW DO HYDRATION DRINK TABS WORK?
They provide a good balance of fluids and electrolytes. Fluids from water combined with the key electrolyte sodium in our Hydration Drink Tabs help your body hold onto hydration. If you drink water alone, the body will expel it quickly. If you drink water with sodium, the water will hang around longer in your body to help keep you hydrated and prevent dehydration.
WHY DOES GU FOCUS PRIMARILY ON SODIUM?
Sodium is the primary electrolyte lost in sweat and crucial to replace during exercise to help avoid dehydration, and a more serious low blood sodium condition known as hyponatremia. Hyponatremia can be life-threatening, and athletes are at a greater risk of developing it either by drinking too much plain water, or by losing too much sodium through sweat.
WHY AND WHEN SHOULD YOU USE GU HYDRATION PRODUCTS?
During exercise, you sweat. When you sweat, you lose both fluids (water) and electrolytes (mostly sodium). Inadequate hydration negatively affects performance and can lead to dehydration, or more serious conditions such as hyponatremia. You need to stay on top of hydration during your workout to perform and feel your best.
