We tend to perspire when exercising. This is our body’s natural mechanism to cool itself down as it generates energy that’s, in turn, transformed into heat. Think of perspiration as our body’s coolant.
However if we keep on perspiring without replenishing the lost liquid, we risk overheating. That’s why, hydration is essential in ensuring we are able to exercise safely and effectively.
Fluid lost through sweat contains more than just water. It also contains electrolytes (also known as minerals) like sodium and potassium. These electrolytes are necessary for the day-to-day functioning of your body. The sodium also helps the body absorb and retain water effectively.
When we work out, we burn energy. Simple carbohydrates, such as glucose and sucrose, which available in 100PLUS, provides an immediate source of energy for an active lifestyle.
