With pre-season training well underway, the boys are working hard in all types of weather to ensure they are in peak physical condition come the start of the season. We understand the importance of hydration throughout the preseason period.
Athletes in search of a fuss-free hydration solution have new help at hand from sports nutrition specialists Nutrition X, who have launched a brand-new effervescent tablet designed to provide a fast-acting hydration boost pre, during and post-exercise; the Hydra+ tablet.
Based on the same effective formula as Nutrition X’s best-selling Hydra 10 powder, the new Hydra+ aims to take the hassle out of effective hydration by making it as easy as possible to access a great-tasting drink containing the required amounts of carbohydrates, electrolytes and vitamins your body needs to maintain optimum hydration levels. Multiple studies show that dehydration has a significantly detrimental effect on athletic performance, with the loss of key electrolytes and fluid levels through sweating leading to impaired muscular strength, endurance and impaired motor-skills – something that Hydra+ helps to keep at bay.
Available in training-bag friendly tubes of 20, each 4g Hydra+ tablet packs a low-carbohydrate, high-sodium punch to replenish key electrolytes lost through sweating. Coming in two fruity flavours, Lemon and Blackcurrant, the soluble tablets dissolve rapidly in water to offer a tasty hydration solution whenever you need, either taken as a pre-emptive hydration boost ahead or during exercise, or as a rehydration solution following training.
A hypotonic drink, Hydra+ packs an impressive 190mg of sodium per tablet and just 0.86g of sugar; a low-sugar, high-sodium alternative to other major hydration drinks on the market. The tablets also have the added bonus of providing essential vitamins and minerals including Vitamin B6, great for aiding energy, and Magnesium; a key electrolyte lost significantly in sweat, vital for aiding muscle function and reducing the chance of cramping.
What’s more, Hydra+ is Informed-Sport accredited, rigorously tested for a range of substances listed on the WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) banned substance list to give athletes the peace of mind they need that they’re making a safer supplement decision.
We look forward to continuing our successful partnership with Nutrition X, helping to fuel Halifax RLFC.
