Isotonic Sports Drink
Top athletes push their body to the limit to deliver an exceptional performance. How do they do it? Two crucial factos aid an exceptional performance: energy and hydration.
Whatever your sport, whether you are a keen team player in a sport like football or hockey, a fan of endurance activities such as marathons or triathlons, a fitness enthusiast who enjoys activites such as gym sessions or a game of tennis — hydration and energy are vital in achieving results to be proud of!
As little as 2% fluid loss during exercise or mild dehydration can significantly harm your performance. For exceptional performance, water alone is not enough.
Introducing H³O Pro™, an incredible new breed of isotonic drink — it's time to rethink your drink.
H³O Pro™ is sold in boxes of 10 sachets, designed to be taken in 500ml of water.
What is H³O Pro™?
Developed with experts in sports nutrition, H³O Pro™ is an innovative isotonic drink helping to power exceptional performances.
As we demand more from our bodies during exercise, it's vital that we support our body and provide what it needs. That's why you get so much more from H³O Pro™ isotonic drink than other brands on the market.
|Hydration||Sweating during exercise causes loss of essential electrolytes (or salts) such as sodium as well as potassium, calcium, magnesium and chloride. Replacing electrolytes can aid rapid hydration and help you avoid the negative effects of dehydration such as muscle cramps, fatigue and headaches.|
|Energy and Stamina||Energising carbohydrates provide your body with immediate and sustained energy, to prevent unwanted performance dips — keeping you at the top of your game!|
|Absorbtion||Energy releasing B-vitamins help improve absorbtion of essential nutrients which means that your body can react faster to the nutrients provided in H³O Pro™ helping to power your performance.|
|Protection||Oxygen production during exercise increases free radical production which can cause damage to the body's cells. Vitamins C and E and mixed tocopherals help protect the body's tissues against oxidative stress.|

Water alone is not enough
Your body is 60% water, so for results to be proud of your body fluid must be kept at its optimum level. When you exercise you sweat, which increases the risk of suffering from the negative effects of dehydration such as headaches, fatigue and cramp.
Today, isotonic drinks are the prefered choice for most athletes wanting exceptional hydration and energy. Isotonic drinks have a similar carbohydrate and electrolyte concentration to your body meaning they are absorbed as fast, if not faster, than water, while providing vital energy to fuel your performance.
Osmolality is a measure of the amount of electrolytes and other solutes in a liquid. An osmolality level of 270-330 Mosm.kg in an isotonic drink helps to maintain the required concentration of electrolytes in your blood.
Water alone has a very low osmolality level as it typically does not contain electrolytes. Although it is great for hydration, water also stimulates urine output, which reduces its effectiveness during your exercise or any sporting performance.
For many athletes and sports people, taste is a critical factor in choosing the right sports drink. Whether you're exercising for 45 minutes or 4 hours, you need to be sure that it won't leave a bad taste in your mouth.
Many sports drinks are made with artificial flavours producing an over-sweet taste which some people find overwhelming. H³O Pro™ has no artificial flavours, sweetners or preservatives.
- Light and clean 'tangy lemon' flavour.
- No overwhelming or over-sweet aftertaste.
- Exceptional refreshing taste!
