The SOS Electrolyte Drink Mix is formulated with a range of elements that keep you powered during intense sport sessions, including:
Sodium is the main electrolyte found in the body which keeps a balance with water. Sodium enables muscle contraction and nerve impulse transmission which prevents ‘water intoxication’ and hyponatremia (low sodium in the blood). Additionally, sodium helps with blood pressure control. Sodium is also the main electrolyte lost through sweat.
Potassium is found inside of cells and it is involved in the correct functioning of the kidneys, heart, digestive system, plus muscle and nerve conduction. It is important to maintain potassium levels to avoid the development of hypokalaemia (low potassium) which can lead to heart arrhythmias and muscle cramping.
The fourth most abundant mineral in the body, magnesium is often underestimated and most of the population are magnesium deficient. The element is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body such as, immune system support, muscle and nerve function, heart rhythm regulation, energy creation, and protein synthesis.
Citrate is an electrolyte that works as a buffer by controlling acidity in the body. It helps to prevent cramping and fatigue due to lactic acid production. Once absorbed, citrate converts into three molecules of bicarbonate, which is the body’s natural acidity regulator.
The second electrolyte which is lost through sweat, Chloride is needed by the body for many metabolic processes. It also helps in the acid-base balance and nerve impulse transmission.
Glucose is the main fuel of the body and in the correct amount Glucose is therefore good for you. The SOS powder contains the ideal amount of sugars and the right kind (sucrose and dextrose). This helps enhance the absorption of water in the water and provides a constant and healthy energy source.
Zinc is an essential trace element which has many functions in the body. It aids in fluid absorption and has been proven to bolster the immune function and to regulate neuron communication in the brain. Zinc also benefits muscle repair and growth while regulating hormones and promoting healthy heart function.
Malic Acid is a compound that plays a key role in increasing energy production, reducing muscle fatigue during exercise, and improving mental clarity. Through enhancing mitochondrial uptake and respiration, malic acid encourages oxygen consumptions and thus energy production.
