During exercise, the body loses fluids and electrolytes through sweating. Insufficient replacement of sweat losses during (endurance) exercise, especially in a hot and humid environment, will have a negative effect on exercise performance and may eventually lead to muscle cramps. 6D HYDRO/ORS is a low calorie electrolyte drink that can be used as a source of fluids and electrolytes.
The 6D HYDRO, in a single dose (= 1 sachet in 500 ml of water), contains only 3,7 g of carbohydrates and 450 mg of sodium per 500 ml bottle. Therefore, 6D HYDRO solution is the ideal sports drink in preparation for or during (endurance) exercise sessions in which athletes wish to deliberately limit the intake of carbohydrates (e.g. young). The 6D HYDRO solution can also be used during shorter exercise sessions, lasting up to one hour, during which it is not necessary to absorb carbohydrates. Thanks to its low calorie content (± 15kcal per 500ml), 6D HYDRO can also be used throughout the day to maintain an optimal water balance. The sodium (~salt) contained in 6D HYDRO stimulates the feeling of thirst and improves the retention of ingested liquids in the body.
By using a double dose (= 2 sachets in 500 ml of water), 6D HYDRO becomes a typical "oral rehydration solution" (ORS). ORS 6d contains 7,5g glucose as maltodextrin and 900mg sodium per 500ml bottle. The combination of sodium and glucose, as well as the hypotonic solution (± 210 mmol/kg) maximize the absorption of liquids in the small intestine. Therefore, ORS 6D is the ideal sports drink for athletes who not only sweat a lot, but also sweat a lot of salts. In addition, during a long-term stay in a hot and humid environment (= tropical climate), the double dose is often recommended to maintain an optimal balance of fluids and electrolytes. In addition, thanks to its high salt content, ORS 6D is the preferred sports drink for "pre-hydrating" the body before exercise and for "re-hydrating" it after exercise. Particularly after prolonged endurance sessions and competitions where fluid and salt losses are known to be very high and large volumes of fluids must be consumed to restore fluid balance after exercise. For standard use during endurance exercise in a hot and humid environment, ISOTONIC SPORTS DRINK 6D is recommended, as it already contains 450 mg of sodium per 500 ml of water as well as 30 g of carbohydrates. However, it may be necessary for some athletes to take in additional salt during prolonged endurance exercise (>3 hours) in the form of ORS 6D.
In summary, the 6D HYDRO/ORS is the ideal choice for all athletes who need extra fluids and electrolytes, without extra carbohydrates or sugars, and especially in a hot and humid environment. Thanks to its neutral pH (~ 7,5), this drink is very suitable for endurance athletes, as it is not "aggressive" for the stomach and teeth. Indeed, no acid has been added to this sports drink.
