For several years Skratch Labs has been secretly working with a select group of elite athletes to develop a drink mix that was never meant to be sold to the public. Why' Well, for the rare athlete who competes in extreme conditions, where the body is unable to replace all the fluids lost, high levels of sodium are needed to help the body retain water. But, it's not a formula that the general public should be ingesting for daily exercise or to hydrate during their local turkey trot. But, with ultra-races seeing an ever-increasing gain in popularity, Skratch has finally added its Hyper Hydration Mix to its product line. To understand why the mix contains 1700mg of sodium per serving, as much as an entire bag of potato chips, you should understand that the body is almost 60% water, but, the average person doesn't have 46 liters of water to spare to keep the body cool. You can suffer as little as 2% water loss during exercise to as much as 10%, the latter being close to critically ill. The bigger problem is that most of the water in our bodies is not stored in readily accessible places. About 2/3rds of it is stored within our cells. In total, only about 1/5th of the water in our bodies is stored in our veins. More importantly, the water in our blood isn't really water, it's a mix of about 9grams of sodium chloride per liter of water -- a very salty ratio. It's from this mix that our sweat originates. And while you've probably been told that massive sweating leads to electrolyte loss, which is true, it's the salt loss that is more dangerous. Therefore, to replace sodium lost requires a highly concentrated solution. Skratch Labs looked to the traditional Saline IV as inspiration for its Hyper Hydration Drink Mix. While an IV pre-race is not the practical solution, the chemistry behind it is sound. It contains the same osmolarity as blood at 3. 5grams/liter, which assists with fast absorption. So why not just ingest the IV solution orally' Well, the large chloride con...
