Scientifically Developed High Performance Hypotonic Hydration Solution
Sweating is the primary mechanism in which our bodies lose heat and regulates our body’s temperature. Dehydration can occur when the fluid that is lost in sweat is not replaced and in turn results in the reduction of the body’s ability to lose heat through sweating. The result of this can lead to heat stress.
It is critically important for workers who are exposed to hot environments -- such as agriculture, mining, oil and gas and construction -- to keep hydrated, especially if they undertake long shifts. When workers are unable to regulate their body temperature, it can result in heat stress and an increased risk of workplace accidents due to mental and physical fatigue.
Workers performing tasks in hot environments and extended shifts of 10-12 hours can sweat on average 600ml of fluid per hour and therefore require a replacement of 6-7 litres of fluid per day.
Available in 3 flavours and a variety of sizes, our range of rehydration solutions from Aqualyte are scientifically developed to prevent the undesirable effects and risks associated with this condition on health and performance.
Aqualyte Rehydration Solutions
Sweat is composed of 99% water and small amounts of carbs, sodium, protein, and urea. Both water and electrolytes play a vital role in keeping workers hydrated. When you sweat, your body loses both water and electrolytes which are both important for your body to function correctly.
Water helps to regulate body temperature, digest food and lubricate tissues and joints whilst electrolytes help to retain fluid and maintain good nerve and muscle function which is why it is essential for both of these two components to be replaced with more than just water.
Based on years of scientific research, Air-Met’s range of Aqualyte High Performance Hydration Solution is low sugar, hypotonic fluid, and electrolyte replacement solution.
Aqualyte is a hypotonic dehydration solution with an osmolarity of 150 mOsmol/L which promotes rapid fluid absorption therefore providing fast action in preventing symptoms and its effect on health and performance and more effective than water or isotonic sports drinks.
