Why is hydration so important?
Losing just 2% of your body weight through dehydration can affect athletic performance by more than 20%. That’s the difference between a good day and a bad one! Using SOS can help you keep performing at your peak.
Can SOS be compared with IV drips?
Yes, SOS can be compared to an IV drip for treating mild to moderate dehydration. After more that 50 years of research, Oral Rehydration Solutions have proven to be as fast and effective as an IV drip, but safer and cheaper. With SOS, you can prevent complications like infections, avoid the painful IV procedure, and save a lot of money.
How does SOS work?
SOS uses the World Health Organization´s Oral Rehydration Therapy recommendations and principles. By correctly balancing the amount of sodium and glucose, SOS enhances the water absorption process by activating the body’s natural mechanism known as the Sodium/Glucose co-transport system, which is located in the small bowel.
When SOS arrives to the small intestine, one molecule of sodium is pulled into the blood vessels by one molecule of glucose; subsequently, due to osmotic forces, water gets absorbed as it always follows sodium.
This is the main reason why we need salt (sodium) and sugar (glucose). With salt we can prevent “water intoxication” and maintain a good osmolarity; with the correct types of sugars, we forestall the development of lactic acidosis.
Why does SOS taste so good and also have such a new
SOS tastes like nothing before and that’s deliberate. As athletes, we were fed up with sugary or ‘chemical’ tasting drinks that were tough on the stomach and could not be consumed quickly or easily. Our answer was to design a mild lemon flavor that leaves no aftertaste and is easy on the stomach. SOS is designed to be consumed quickly; you can enjoy it before, during or after physical activity.
How many Calories does SOS have?
SOS has only 25 kcal per serving, so it’s not only great at hydrating, it’s also super low in calories.
SOS is proper hydration: water+sodium+glucose. Fast rehydration, osmotic balance, energy source.
What is the difference between SOS and sports drinks?
SOS is different from typical sports drinks because it is an Oral Rehydration Solution (ORS). It has a low osmolarity solution that contains 50% more electrolytes and 75% less carbohydrates than sports drinks.
Due to its high sugar content, Sports Drinks have a high osmolarity. This will lead to bloating and even diarrhea. High osmolarity in the gut will pull water from the blood vessels into the gut instead of absorbing it; this is known as osmotic diarrhea.
What is the difference between SOS and energy drinks?
The main ingredients of energy drinks are high amounts of sugar and caffeine. As their name says, they are made to give an artificial energy boost; they are not meant to rehydrate you.
Caffeine is known to be a diuretic because it blocks the Antidiuretic Hormone (ADH) in the brain, thus increasing the urine production. After that initial energy boost you will feel tired and you will definitively be dehydrated. Some of the main dehydration symptoms are tiredness, headaches, constipation, and lightheadedness.
SOS is all-natural and gives you a fast and healthy boost of water. Proper hydration is key for good performance and lifestyle survival.
Who should not use SOS?
People with water restrictions, heart or kidney problems should refer to a Physician/Doctor before taking SOS. Also, it should not be consumed by children under 1 year old.
SOS is not recommended for those with sedentary lifestyles, unless they suffer from mild to moderate dehydration.
