Hydrant’s science-founded solution allows for maximum absorption without synthetic colors or stevia and maintains a low osmolality and the optimal ratio of electrolytes to glucose for water absorption. Backed by extensive scientific research, Hydrant’s hydration innovation utilizes a three-pronged approach:
1) Balanced Electrolyte Content
2) Rapid Absorption
3) Low Osmolality
High and Balanced Electrolyte Content: Hydrant features a balance of electrolytes based on The World Health Organization’s guidelines for oral rehydration. Traditional sports drinks contain fewer electrolytes per ounce and proportionally much lower potassium than Hydrant.
Rapid Absorption: Hydrant’s 7 grams or less of cane sugar per serving are just enough to activate the sodium-glucose transport mechanism in the small intestine, which acts as a pump to push electrolytes and water into the bloodstream faster. Hydrant leverages this internal mechanism of the body to provide rapid absorption.
Low Osmolality: Hydrant has low osmolality (179.00 mOsm/kg for our lime mix), which means there are fewer particles per unit volume in the liquid. This allows Hydrant to rapidly move down the body’s osmotic gradient, making water absorption faster.
