Sweating is essential for cooling the body, but the process loses fluid and hydration is critical. Sweating also helps remove some waste products generated by the body. But did you know that you also lose electrolytes and amino acids when you sweat?
To achieve hydration, you need to replenish what you lose in sweat, which includes: fluid, electrolytes and amino acids. The trick is knowing which amino acids are lost in the sweat. The InnovAAte scientists have worked this out for you. They identified six amino acids were deemed as high-demand amino acids. If these are in short supply, then the body sources these by breaking down tis own muscle proteins to release the amino acids it needs. The InnovAAte strategy is to provide these high-demand amino acids in a form that are rapidly absorbed by the body.
As little as a 3% loss of hydration can lead to lack of energy, difficulty in concentrating, sub-optimal brain function and an overall loss of up to 50% decrease in workplace performance.
- Daily amino acid supplementation with OptimAAte® can supply the key amino acids that are in greatest demand during the day to support active lifestyles.
- The ElectrAAte® has been designed to provide the high-demand amino acids, plus the electrolytes, that can be lost through sweat and urine.
- OptimAAte® can be mixed with water in your drink bottle or cup.
- ElectrAAte® can be mixed in the drink bottle or cup and has a light lemon flavouring.
