Dehydration is a common phenomenon that a lot of people (especially athletes and sportspersons) have to deal with regularly. From a biological point of view we can see that when levels of key salts and water within our bodies drop. We can start to experience issues such as loss of strength and stamina.
Technically speaking dehydration can be alleviated by simply drinking water. However, some of the key minerals and salts that we lose through sweating can often not be replaced by water alone. Chronic loss of key salts can affect our kidney function and increase the risk of kidney stones. Some recent evidence also says that it may lead to muscle damage and constipation.
Accelerade is an ‘energy drink’ that was first introduced to the market in 2001. It was the first sports drink in the commercial sector that featured a patented 4:1 ratio of carbohydrates to protein. This compositional aspect in itself set it apart form carb-only sports drinks and water.
Over the years, through the use of cutting edge research and peer-reviewed scientific studies, Accelerade has changed the perception of sports drinks by incorporating healthy doses of proteins and amino compounds.
Before we answer that question. We should look at what makes regular isotonic sports drinks inferior to Accelerate. Numerous scientific studies have long established that the addition of carbohydrates to isotonic (electrolyte only) sports drinks activates a transport system that allows more water to be absorbed by the body.
Accelerade corrects that and aims to deliver key nutrients like sodium and iron via an all new protein transport system. Not only is this delivery system fast acting, it is also able to deliver many benefits within a short span of time.
Accelerade has been the subject of many research studies done in the recent past. Infact researchers at James Madison University have recently shown that cyclists that use Accelerade, compared to a conventional sports drink, increased their endurance by 29%, decreased muscle damage by 83% and even increased endurance in a subsequent workout performed almost 24 hours later by 40%.
