Why 1,000 mg of sodium per litre? The average athlete loses ~950mg of sodium per litre of sweat, so if your sweat/sodium losses are moderate to high, a drink containing about 1000mg/l could help you stay on top of your fluid/electrolyte replenishment.
Why is sodium so important? Maintaining the sodium levels in your blood is crucial to performing at your best when you're sweating for long periods.
Sodium helps you absorb and retain fluid, which keeps your blood volume up, reducing cardiovascular strain, fatigue and potentially even cramp.
Just drinking water when sweating over long periods dilutes your sodium levels, which can really impact your performance and could lead to hyponatremia. A recent study found 10% of athletes had hyponatremia at the end of an Ironman!
What are hypotonic electrolyte drinks? Hypotonic sports drinks have a lower concentration - or thickness - than your blood. This makes them absorb faster than isotonic (similar concentration) and hypertonic (higher concentration) sports drinks, making them more effective if hydration is your main aim. Our electrolyte supplements are all hypotonic.
