Hydro tabs are a great source of replenishment for your body after working out. These hydration tablets look to replace electrolytes lost.
For Goodness Shakes Hydro tabs contain 5-ion electrolytes; sodium, potassium, chloride, magnesium and calcium, all of which are electrolytes contained in sweat.
It's particularly important that you make sure you take on board fluid containing electrolytes, to make sure your body is able to retain water fluid and maximise endurance during exercise.
Consume before, during or after exercise to replenish your hydration levels. Aim for 500ml - 1L per hour, depending on your sweat rate and the conditions you are exercising in. Warm sunny days or intense indoor sessions will casue you to have much higher sweat rates than exercising outdoors in the cold.
As you exercise, your body’s core temperature will rise. Sweating is one way of your body regulating its temperature; the evaporation of water away from your skin helps to take heat energy away from it, keeping you cooler. However, when you are exercising for an hour or more you need to replace this fluid that’s lost. If you just drink water your body’s electrolyte levels will become imbalanced, making you feel fatigued, therefore it’s important to replace the electrolytes, particularly sodium, that’s lost as well as replacing the water.
