What is SOS Hydration?

SOS Hydration is a doctor formulated hydration and electrolyte replacement drink.

SOS Hydration has been scientifically developed to meet the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) guidelines for Oral Rehydration Solutions (ORS).

Oral Rehydration Solutions (ORS) are designed specifically to prevent and treat dehydration.

How does SOS Hydrate work?

Oral Rehydration Solutions (ORS) are specifically designed to aid fluid absorption. This is achieved by controlling the ingredients and also the ratios of those ingredients to produce a formula that takes advantage of the body’s natural systems.

The major electrolyte involved in fluid balance in the body is sodium. Sodium is also the electrolyte that we lose in highest concentrations through sweat.

Therefore the amount of sodium in SOS serves two functions:

  • Replace the sodium that is lost through sweat
  • Aid the absorption of water in the body

How much calories does SOS contain?

And it does all of this with less than 14 calories per serve, 1/5th of the sugar of a sports drink and no artificial ingredients.
LIFESTYLE SURVIVAL means SOS is designed to be used to optimally hydrate in

  • Sports / training
  • Active lifestyles
  • Occupational, military, emergency services
  • Illness
  • Overindulgence

Is sodium important for athletes?

Sodium is the electrolyte that we lose the most in our sweat.

Sports drinks typically have low amounts of sodium when compared to Oral Rehydration Solutions and do not replace this vital electrolyte in the required amounts for continued optimal electrolyte balance.

SOS is a highly concentrated electrolyte formula with 3 times as much sodium as the market leading sports drink so you can properly replace what you sweat out.

Why sports drinks are a bad idea?

Hydrate without the Calories.

SOS is a low sugar, low calorie solution that contains 5 times less sugar than the market leading sports drink. Effective hydration does not require a large sugar intake.

Why vital for athlete to maintain hydration?

When we exercise or are unwell our bodies have extra stresses placed on them and maintaining hydration is of greater importance to maintain or regain homeostasis in the body. Effectively replacing fluids lost through sweat and overheating is imperative.

Dehydration of 2% or greater loss of body weight through fluid loss can significantly affect your welfare and performance both physiologically and mentally.

What is effective hydration?

Effective hydration is not only about drinking enough fluid but making sure that fluid is being absorbed properly so that it can assist the body in its normal functions and when under stress. SOS has been formulated to ensure that the fluid you drink is absorbed quickly and effectively.

During exercise when the body’s core temperature rises sweating is the most effective way for the body to dissipate heat. When we sweat we lose lots of body water. In order to continue to be able to sweat effectively, and therefore keep our body temperature controlled, we must keep hydrated. Dehydration caused through sweat loss can lead to heat stress if the body can no longer sweat properly and help cool the body.

Keeping yourself well-hydrated is one of the simplest ways to look after your base health and your body before, during and after exercise.
