What is Hydration (original long format backup)
The Importance of Hydration
- Hydration is critically important for optimal performance, because all Functions and Processes in the body depend on fluids:
- Transporting Food/Raw Materials throughout the body to the cells;
- Removing Metabolic By-Products from cells and the body;
- Thermal Regulation – Removing Heat from the body;
- Respiration – Expelling Carbon Dioxide and other By-Products;
- Body Processes that generate energy to perform work.
- Your body attempts to maintain a Fluid Balance and all of these processes deplete Fluids and create a Fluid Imbalance.
- It has been estimated that 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.
To regain Fluid Balance and Performance, we need to Rehydrate...
- Scientists agree that Fluids follow Electrolytes in the body and that, by controlling electrolyte concentrations, you can drive Rehydration.
- The question is how to control Electrolyte concentrations and there are currently two methods: Old Science and New Science (the Hydrus Advantage):
- Old Science (50-Years Old):
- Electrolytes follow Sugars, which are readily absorbed into the bloodstream.
- Pros: Sugar is readily absorbed into bloodstream in the gut & Electrolytes will follow sugar
- Glycemic Response (Blood Sugar Levels Spikes, leading to Crashing)
- Slow Absorption
- New Science (Hydrus Nanozomes™):
- Faster Absorption, which begins in the Mouth
- Nanozomes™ are very small (approx. 40-60nm) (Human Hair is 80,000-100,000nm);
- Better Absorption through Digestive and Lymphatic Systems in the Gut;
- No Sugar
- No Calories
- No Glycemic Response = No Crashing
- Cons: (None)
