You Sweat – You Breathe – You Need LowOZ – Rapid Rehydration
SHOP TALK NOTES·WEDNESDAY, JUNE 15, 2016
Ever get thirsty while working out? Dehydration can occur long before you even become thirsty. In fact, without sufficient fluids, your body is less capable of moving nutrients through your system and distributing oxygen. Dehydration is a condition that occurs when the loss of body fluids, mostly water, exceeds the amount that is taken in. With dehydration,
more water is moving out of our cells and bodies than what we take in through drinking. We lose water every day in the form of water vapor in the breath we exhale and in our excreted sweat, urine, and stool. Along with the water, small amounts of salts are also lost. When we lose too much water, our bodies may become out of balance or dehydrated. Research has shown the importance of proper hydration to help maintain optimal performance. In fact, dehydrating a muscle by as little as 3 percent can cause a 12 percent decrease in strength. Allowing water into the muscle tissue helps to balance the electrolytes, as well as providing an environment that may allow for further muscle growth and optimal recovery from exercise.
Causes of Dehydration
In Adults Many conditions may cause rapid and continued fluid losses and lead to dehydration:
- Fever, heat exposure, and too much exercise
- Fever, heat exposure, and too much infection
- Diseases such as Diabetes
- Vomiting, Diarrhea
- The inability to seek appropriate water and food (as in the case of a disabled person)
Symptoms of Dehydration in Adults The signs and symptoms of dehydration range from minor to severe and include:
- Increased thirst
- Dry Mouth and Swollen Tongue
- Weakness of Muscles or Fatigue
- Palpitations (feeling that the heart is jumping or pounding)
- Sluggishness fainting
- Inability to sweat
- Decreased urine output
Urine color may indicate dehydration. If urine is concentrated and deeply yellow or amber, you may be dehydrated.
Severe dehydration can lead to death. As we sweat, we lose water and important nutrients we lose electrolytes. These electrolytes are necessary to regulate the flow of water across the cell membrane. Without the proper balance of electrolytes, our cells and tissues may become dehydrated. By combining potassium, sodium, and magnesium, LowOz™ is able to restore these electrolytes and balance out the fluids.
By combining the latest advances in science and nutrition, Xxtra Fitness LowOZ provides a high-quality, great-tasting, effective product to elevate your performance.
This Rapid Rehydration begins within 90 seconds of drinking LowOZ. It delivers a blend of essential electrolytes, energy-efficient nutrients, and antioxidants but also delivers it in an effective manner. Our secret? Low osmolality – hence, “LowOz™.”
Osmolality is the measurement of solid particles in a liquid. Principles of chemistry teach us that a liquid will flow from a low osmolality environment to a high osmolality environment. This lowers the overall concentration of the solid particles and spreads out any associated charges of ions (electrolytes).
The average osmolality of blood is 250. LowOz™ has been tested at an osmolality of 150.
Water is driven to areas of higher osmolality. Since the drink will have a lower osmolality than the tissues, water will be absorbed into the tissue where it is needed. LowOz™’s electrolyte blend combines potassium, sodium, and magnesium in an optimal proportion to maintain water balance during exercise or any kind of exertion and helps you avoid exhaustion.*
LowOz™’s energy blend combines slow metabolizing (fructose) and fast metabolizing carbohydrates (maltodextrin) and B vitamins to provide energy sources to sustain your workout.* The antioxidant blend includes vitamin C and an OPC blend (grape seed extract and maritime bark extract). This blend provides powerful flavonoids, catechins, and other antioxidant properties to support your body’s natural antioxidant defence mechanism.*
