Low-calorie high electrolyte effervescent tablet to hydrate during training or racing:
About SiS GO Hydro
SiS GO Hydro represents a cutting edge and scientifically based formulation that is designed to ensure you are effectively hydrated to produce your best performance. As an effervescent tablet that readily dissolves in plain water, it represents a highly practical approach (simply drop one tablet in your 500 ml water bottle) to ensure that all of your electrolyte and fluid requirements are met in its most simple format. SiS GO Hydro is a practical strategy to ensure hydration without the calories.
Why should I take SiS GO Hydro?
During moderate to intense exercise, we may produce 1-2 litres (L) of sweat (that contains both fluid and important electrolytes) per hour depending on the exact environmental conditions. If such fluid losses are not replaced at an appropriate rate, dehydration occurs and performance can be impaired. In a dehydrated state, our body temperature rises, our heart rate increases, we deplete carbohydrate stores quicker and we perceive the exercise to be more intense. In essence, we have to work so much harder just to perform at the same speed or power output and thus, dehydration is considered a major cause of fatigue. In the context of maintaining hydration status, sodium is the most important electrolyte as it helps to stimulate thirst, improve fluid palatability and promote fluid absorption and retention. SiS GO Hydro meets your sodium requirements in an appropriate amount (0.7 grams per L) and concentration (30 mmol/L) that is scientifically proven to produce superior hydration compared with plain water.
To ensure hydration prior to training or racing, consume at least 500 ml of GO Hydro approximately 3-4 hours prior to your event with a further 250-500 ml at 2 hours prior to starting. During exercise itself, traditional guidelines advise a drinking strategy that prevents dehydration equating to > 2% loss in body mass. In practice, such a drinking strategy usually equates to 500 ml per hour and depending on the environmental conditions, your thirst will likely determine if your body requires more. If aiming to combine hydration and energy delivery, SiS GO Energy could be combined with the SiS GO Gels and GO Bar range to ensure both adequate carbohydrate and fluid delivery during exercise.

What are energy drinks?
Energy drinks either give you a much needed boost of power during your ride or help you recover quickly afterwards. They are simple to use – simply dissolve the powder with water to the required measurements and you’re ready to go. It’s handy to keep a bottle of energy drink on your bike during a long ride.
Who needs energy drinks?
If you’re riding over 4 hours, it’s definitely a good idea to try energy products. They are formulated to give you specific amounts of carbohydrates and protein, but also give you the urge to drink more, keeping you hydrated.
What are the choices?
Energy drinks come in a wide range of flavours, fruity, exotic or interesting. There are lots of brands to choose from, so it’s really a case of finding the one that works best for you and also tastes the nicest.
What should I buy with it?
A bottle and cage set-up for your bike is ideal for keeping your energy drink close at hand. It’s not advisable to use energy drinks in a hydration pack as the sugar content will make it incredibly difficult to clean. Most brands have accompanying bottles with the measurements already on the side, so you can mix your drink and put it straight on your bike.
Try any energy product out on practice rides in case it has an adverse effect on you or you find that you don’t like the taste.
