      Replacing the electrolytes lost during exercise is essential for long-distance athletes. Having adequate sodium intake prevents the dreaded hyponatremia, but performance isn’t optimized when athletes focus is only skin deep. You don’t just need to replace the sodium lost in sweat – you need to replace the minerals lost during exercise! Within the body, tough endurance exercise takes its toll, increasing systemic mineral loss. That includes sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium.

      Plenty of electrolyte supplements have adequate sodium, and that’s not anything special – you can get sodium from common table salt! Did you know that your total potassium needs are almost double that of your sodium needs? Why don’t electrolyte supplements contain hardly any potassium? Potassium is the primary intracellular ion to complement sodium as the primary extracellular ion, and athletes need to maintain their cellular balance. Exercise is good for your bones, but not if there isn’t adequate calcium in the diet. Magnesium is a co-factor for hundreds of metabolic reactions in the body, and they can’t proceed without sufficient magnesium. Your electrolyte supplement should be helping on all fronts to support your best performance.

      Look no further than Hydrate, the first electrolyte supplement of its kind, and the best electrolyte supplement for endurance athletes. Hydrate is the first to use all-natural Himalayan pink salt as a source of sodium and chloride, and it is the first to include Sustamine, Taurine, and other trace minerals. Where other electrolyte supplements fall short, Hydrate picks up the slack. Light flavoring makes it tasty on its own and able to be paired great with athletes’ favorite sports drink, SustainElite, when they need extra electrolytes! Re-hydrate like a pro with Hydrate!

      L-Taurine This amino acid has numerous functions including oxidative stress, blood flow and angiogenesis, and insulin sensitivity which ultimately culminate in improved endurance performance.

      Sustamine - Sustamine works by affecting intracellular potassium levels and pH balance to promote hydration.

      Sodium  – The most abundant electrolyte lost in sweat, sodium needs to be replaced during endurance exercise to prevent hyponatremia.

      Potassium  – Potassium is the primary electrolyte found inside cells. Working together with Sodium, the primary electrolyte found outside of cells, potassium speeds cellular rehydration during and after sweating.

      Chloride - Hypochloremia (low blood chloride) has the same dangers as hyponatremia, and for every 10 sodium ions lost in sweat, 8 chloride ions go with it. Therefore, chloride is an electrolyte that must be considered during exercise.

      Calcium – An essential mineral for bone formation also has a role in fat oxidation, endurance performance, and body composition.

      Phosphate - Required for every cell in the body to function properly. Involved in energy production from ATP and creatine phosphate.

      Magnesium – Magnesium is used in over 300 bodily processes. Sodium gets all the press, but magnesium is the most likely mineral candidate for preventing muscle cramps. It has also been shown to aid exercise performance.

      Boron - Assists in maintaining healthy bones and mental function. Research also suggests boron can increase levels of free testosterone.

      Vitamin B-3 (900mcg) B-3 may inhibit lipolysis, which reduces the amount of fat that can be used to produce ATP. Conversely, it can enhance blood flow and growth hormone. 

      Vitamin B-6 (900mcg) - Helps the body make several neurotransmitters, chemicals that carry signals from one nerve cell to another. It is needed for normal brain development and function and helps the body make the hormones serotonin and norepinephrine, which influence mood, and melatonin, which helps regulate the body clock.

      Iodine - Critical for maintaining the health of the thyroid, a gland that secretes hormones that regulate growth and development

      Zinc - Involved in cell signaling and therefore can release hormones and aid in nerve conduction.

      Vitamin B12 (1.5mcg) - Maintains healthy nerve cells and helps in the production of DNA and RNA, the body's genetic material. Vitamin B12 works closely with folate to help make red blood cells and to help iron work better in the body.

      Why Is Hydrate Unique?

      Hydrate is unique in several ways. It’s the first electrolyte supplement to include sodium from Himalayan Pink Salt and small amounts of many other minerals, such as zinc and sulfur. Hydrate is also unique because it’s the first electrolyte supplement to contain the patented ingredient Sustamine. Sustamine works by affecting intracellular potassium levels and pH balance to promote hydration

      What is the Best Way to Take Hydrate?

      The best way to use Hydrate is to first determine your sweat rate and sodium loss rate. As an estimate of your individual needs, one serving of Hydrate is sufficient to replace the sodium lost in sweat for an average athlete. However, many individual variations exist and the environment can augment these factors as well, so you may need to adjust accordingly.

      Can I Use Hydrate as My Only Race Fuel?

      You can use Hydrate as your only source of sodium and other electrolytes. However, Hydrate contains no calories, so it is not suitable for replacing carbohydrates needed to fuel exercise. If you are a salty sweater, Hydrate has been designed to pair seamlessly with SustainElite, the best sports drink for endurance athletes.

        Awesome hydrating supplement.

        Love this product. Perfect hydration supp for long resistance e rides. Not overly sweet, no stomach issues.

        Matt Jackson
        Good for Going the Distance

        Great stuff IMHO! As a 66 year young bike rider I recently relied on this product for electrolyte suppliment during an all-day 110 mile rails to trails bike ride and had zero leg cramp issues. The takeaway for me is that even after chugging Juicy Watermelon Hydrate Elite for a long, strenuous day, it didn't produce that "I'll never be able to drink this stuff again" feeling I've had from other similar products from other brands and that's saying a LOT!!😉😎

        Brian Gyeski
        Best thing since sliced bread

        Use to experience some serious cramping during runs. Ever since I’ve incorporated Hydrate into my pre-during-post run have not had ANY CRAMPING!!! This stuff works!

        Andrew Pursifull
        Better than Gatorade

        Not only does it work better than Gatorade and Gatorade type sports drinks, but it's cheaper and cleaner than "over the counter" sports drinks.

        Jeffrey Treut
        Great product - a little pricey

        Great product but a little pricey. I usually mix this with some less expensive electrolyte sources.
