Get Hydrated with SOS Hydration
*The SOS hydration drink mix is used at many of the worlds leading health and athletic performance facilities who choose SOS as a fast acting and best practice hydration formula that is both safe and cost effective.
*For real medical situations, please contact your physician or call emergency services immediately.
Some sports drinks are ineffective at combatting dehydration as they may not contain the optimal amount and balance of electrolytes and glucose.
SOS is formulated to specifically meet the needs of rapid hydration.
SOS Hydration contains the optimal ratio of electrolytes and a small amount of glucose that assist your own body to maximise its ability to get “more from water”.
SOS Hydration has over 25% more electrolytes than the average coconut drink.
SOS helps you stay hydrated longer.
Feel the Difference with SOS Rehydrate
Using the best in medical science, SOS is engineered by a leading doctor, two former elite athletes, and a retired military medical officer with the purpose of solving dehydration in order to improve overall human performance.
Understanding the Problem with Dehydration
During a normal day we lose about two liters of water just through breathing, sweat, urine and bowel movements. When we exercise we can lose up to two liters per hour depending on the type of physical activity. Also, while sweating, we lose two main electrolytes: sodium (range 10-70 mEq/L) and chloride (range 5-60 mEq/L).
Just a 2% loss in body weight due to dehydration can reduce athletic performance by a staggering 20%. In addition, for every liter of fluid lost: your core temperature increases, heart rate rises, glycogen storedin muscles are used more rapidly, and lactic acid increases.
When we first start to sense thirst, we are already 2% dehydrated. At this percentage, humans begin to develop headaches, tiredness and loss of focus. These factors alone contribute to a decrease in performance and will only grow the more dehydrated one becomes, along with the imbalance of electrolytes in one’s body.
Increasing Proper Levels of Water Absorption
When fluid arrives at the first portion of the small bowel, the unique SOS formula activates the body’s Sodium/Glucose co-transport system.
Then, one molecule of sodium is pulled from the small intestine into the blood vessels by one molecule of glucose; subsequently, due to osmotic forces in the body, water gets absorbed as it always follows sodium.
The ‘Sodium Glucose co transport system’ was discovered by the medical community, and doctors use this system to treat mild to moderate dehydration, saving millions of lives all over the world. This method of delivery is called Oral Rehydration Therapy (ORT) and is fully endorsed by the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF.
SOS equals the global standard set by the WHO. We have also been able to lower the osmolarity and stabilize the taste – a complex challenge that no rehydration drink has managed to date.
SOS can be compared to an IV drip. It works just as rapidly but is safer and cheaper than intravenous therapy at treating mild to moderate dehydration.
Balancing Water & Sodium Levels in the Body
Osmolarity is the balance between water and sodium in the body. The body’s normal (isotonic) osmolarity is 290mmol/L. From a rehydration perspective, the lower the osmolarity, the faster the body can absorb water.
High glucose concentrations can increase the osmolarity of drinks. SOS osmolarity is 230mmol/L, which means we are a hypotonic drink. That’s better than isotonic and hypertonic drinks when it comes to rehydration.
SOS Osmolarity is 20% lower than the average hydration drink, 25% lower than the average coconut water, 50% lower than the average sports drink, and over 80% lower than the average soda.
