REPLENISH transforms water into a refreshing appetizing drink that provides the essential electrolytes your body thirsts for during exercise. The strong flavors will encourage you to drink more to stay ahead of your thirst.

Over 70% of our muscles, lungs, and heart are made up of water. That’s why performance suffers as we lose fluids and electrolytes. REPLENISH is designed to balance your electrolytes for optimal performance so you can maintain your peak performance. The great taste will ensure you don’t forget to drink.

Depletion of electrolytes during strenuous activity leads to higher body temperature, headaches, dizziness, swelling, lack of performance, and lethargy. REPLENISH delivers the optimal combination of essential electrolytes you need in a scientifically researched and supported combination serving of 20mg Magnesium to 500mg Sodium and 350mg Potassium in a great tasting powder mix to help you sustain performance without dropping off so you can win the day. 

What are electrolytes?

Electrolytes are minerals in your body that have an electric charge. Electrolytes are essential minerals—like sodium, calcium, and potassium—that are vital to many key functions in the body. They are in your blood, urine, tissues, and other body fluids. Electrolytes are important because they help to;

  • Balance the amount of water in your body
  • Balance your body's acid/base (pH) level
  • Move nutrients into your cells
  • Move wastes out of your cells
  • Make sure that your nerves, muscles, the heart, and the brain work the way they should
  • Ensure strong muscular contraction

Sodium, calcium, potassium, chloride, phosphate, and magnesium are all electrolytes. You get them from the foods you eat and the fluids you drink.

They are held in delicate balance. The levels of electrolytes in your body are subject to fluctuation and can become too low or too high. This can happen when the amount of water in your body changes. The amount of water that you take in should equal the amount you lose. We dehydrate as your body uses water from tissues for numerous purposes (then excreted through the urine). When we exercise, we accelerate the rate of water consumption by accelerating cellular processes and through the need to keep cool (sweating). During intense or long term exercise our ability to replace water and electrolytes lost is exceeded by our consumption of them.

Electrolytes need to be maintained in an even balance for your body to function properly. Otherwise, vital body systems can be affected. Severe electrolyte imbalances can cause serious problems such as coma, seizures, and cardiac arrest.

Sugar, salt, and water help your body absorb fluids, but a lot of sports drinks have too much sugar and not enough electrolytes to really help your body replenish the electrolytes it needs. REPLENISH contains valuable doses of the three main electrolytes our bodies deplete during exercise, Magnesium (20mg) Sodium (500mg) and Potassium (350mg).

Magnesium is particularly valuable for intense exercise as it maintains muscle contraction, endurance, and strength over time. It supports the generation of ATP the body’s main energy source (see above), prevents cramping and muscular weakness and is an ideal addition for the endurance athlete.

These drinks are intended to be low sugar (they are 10-15 calories only) and work their effects within the body at the cellular level rather than by initiating a hormonal (sugar spike) or central nervous system (stimulant) response. 

In line with all the products we have formulated the electrolyte products work with the body to maintain it at its best for longer with a specific emphasis on supporting the active individual who is out in the ‘field” for a prolonged period. REPLENISH provides everything you need and nothing you don’t to REPLENISH safe electrolyte levels in the body.

As a very low calorie, low carb fat and protein free product it serves its purpose and will not interfere with the athlete’s other nutrition needs and choices for their activity.
