What is in Pura HydroCharger 180+?

Pura HydroCharger 180+ contains a precise formulation of carbohydrate, ionic electrolytes, taurine and caffeine for stimulation, B-vitamins and natural flavourings.

Who should use Pura HydroCharger 180+?

Pura HydroCharger 180+ has been formulated to fuel and hydrate demanding sporting events where you need a constant supply of energy, an extra kick to keep you going and also need to maintain hydration. It is best suited for exercise sessions lasting more than 60 minutes such as team sports training and games, endurance running and cycling, swim training and triathlon.

When should I drink Pura HydroCharger 180+?

HydroCharger 180+ is perfect for pre-exercise to make sure your muscles are full of carbohydrate, you are fully hydrated and buzzing ready to perform. It is also ideal for consuming during exercise to keep your energy and fluid levels topped up and give you a boost when you may be flagging mentally.

Why does Pura HydroCharger 180+ contain carbohydrate energy?

You can use fat, carbohydrate and some proteins as fuel. However the preferred energy source is carbohydrate and fat burning is actually more efficient if carbohydrate is present. If you use up your carbohydrate stores (your body has approximately 60-90 minutes worth stored) your performance will significantly reduce, by up to 50%. To prevent this, taking on board carbohydrate is vital.

What is the benefit of a tri-energy source?

HydroCharger 180+ contains fruit fructose, maltodextrin and ribose which are each absorbed at different rates and using different pathways. The advantage of this is twofold. Firstly due to the fast (maltodextrin), medium (ribose) and slow (fructose) absorption rates energy supply is sustained avoiding the highs and lows of products using only a single carbohydrate. Secondly, the different absorption pathways mean that your body use more carbohydrate than if using a single pathway.

What are ionic electrolytes?

Ionic electrolytes are essential for hydration. During exercise we not only lose fluid but also electrolytes and it is necessary to replace these. The body requires electrolytes in their ionically charged form and very few sports nutrition products include electrolytes in this form.

Our ionic electrolyte mix includes a precisely balanced ionically charged blend of magnesium, potassium, sodium and chloride, as well as over 60 other naturally occurring trace and ultra trace elements. Together these nutrients help to promote fluid uptake, so you remain hydrated during exercise and keeps the body functioning optimally.

Why does Pura HydroCharger 180+ include Caffeine?

Caffeine is one of the most common stimulants and is naturally found in tea and coffee . Research has shown that caffeine is an ergogenic aid, i.e. it can improve performance it both endurance and sprint activities when consumed in doses of approx. 3-9 mg/kg.

Caffeine improves performance by increasing focus, sustaining maximum endurance performance (e.g. time-trialling) and boost intermittent sprint performance in high-intensity activities such as football, rugby etc.

It is generally accepted that caffeine is more effective as a performance enhancer when consumed as caffeine anhydrous as opposed to in tea or coffee. Pura HydroCharger 180+ uses caffeine anhydrous.

What is Taurine?

Taurine is a naturally occurring amino acid which is found in high levels in white blood cells, skeletal muscles, the central nervous system and the heart muscle. It is vital for the efficient functioning of many of the processes in the body.

Taurine has been included in Pura HydroCharger 180+ due to its ability to act as a stimulant to increase the efficiency of the processes occurring in the body as you exercise and has been shown to increase your sports performance.

What is Tyrosine?

Tyrosine is an amino acid which is forms the basis of the neurotransmitters dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine and is a precursor to the thyroid hormone. Fatigue is associated with a reduction in these neurotransmitters. Supplementing with tyrosine has been claimed to increase mental focus and motivation and stimulate physical performance

A secondary benefit of tyrosine is to promote the burning of fat as fuel which may be beneficial to endurance performance and those looking to lose body fat.

What do Hypotonic, Isotonic and Hypertonic mean?

Hypotonic refers to solutions which have less molecules in the liquid than that of the body. Isotonic refers to liquids which have approximately the same number of molecules in them as that of the body. Hypertonic refers to drinks in which there is more molecules (carbohydrate) in the liquid than in the bodies fluid. These drinks are absorbed slowly and often sit heavy in the stomach. Pura HydroCharger 180+ has been designed to be hypotonic to hydrate you fast.

How much carbohydrate does HydroCharger 180+ contain?

One serving (50g) of HydroCharger 180+ contains 45g of Carbohydrate.

Is a scoop included in the tub?

Yes. A scoop is included in the tub. During transportation the scoop may become buried in the powder so you may need to use a fork to find it!

Does Pura HydroCharger 180+ contain any artificial flavourings, preservatives or colourings?

No. All our products are made using only natural ingredients including real fruit as flavouring.

Why use real fruit?

We believe that what you put into your body should be as natural as possible so we flavour our products with real fruit rather than artificial products. As a result they taste much more natural.

How much Pura HydroCharger 180+ do I need to drink?

Your hydration and energy needs will vary depending on your weight, fitness & sweat rate, the intensity and duration of exercise and the environmental conditions i.e. temperature and humidity. As a general rule we suggest that you aim to drink one 500ml serving of Pura HydroCharger 180+ every hour during exercise and that this is consumed in small amounts every 10-15minutes. The exact needs will need to be adjusted and experimented with depending on the specifics suggested above. If it is very hot, you are a heavy sweater and you are exercising for a prolonged period of time you may to increase your intake.

Scientifically Proven Effectiveness

Pura Hydro Charger 180+ has been designed to help you maintain performance during endurance events by providing energy, maintaining electrolyte balance and giving you a mental boost via natural stimulants.

Whatever your sport; be it running, football, or triathlon, drinking Pura Hydro Charger 180+ before and during your training and competition will help maintain your hydration and energy levels and help you achieve your best performance.

Pura Hydro Charger 180+ has been formulated using tri-source carbohydrates in the form of maltodextrin, grape fructose and d-ribose. Carbohydrates from different sources utilise different carbohydrate metabolism pathways which allow the body to absorb more energy than from a single source. Research suggests that glucose uptake is limited by the sodium dependent glucose transported (SGLT-1), by adding fructose, this energy can be absorbed via a different pathway, namely the GLUT 5 transporters. Additionally, as each of the carbohydrates have a different glycemic index (the rate at which it is absorbed into the bloodstream) there is a sustained energy delivery.

In addition to energy, a second vital component of performance is maintaining adequate hydration, since a drop in hydration of just 2% can seriously inhibit performance. To help maintain hydration  Pura Hydro Charger 180+ includes an ionic electrolyte mix which aids the absorption of water during exercise. In addition potassium has been included as it helps maintain optimal muscle function, and Magnesium which is known to reduce feelings of tiredness and fatigue and help energy metabolism.

Once carbohydrate has been absorbed into the bloodstream, it needs to be metabolised into energy. To help this process occur as efficiently as possible Pura Hydro Charger 180+ includes a B-Vitamin complex. B Vitamins help to convert carbohydrate into energy and are also important for haemoglobin production which can enhance the ability of the blood to carry oxygen to the working muscles.

We all know that during longer duration events, be it training or competition, your focus can wane and ultimately this can cost you a PB or a victory. To help maintain your concentration and focus  Pura Hydro Charger 180+ includes caffeine, taurine and tyrosine which are powerful mental stimulants. 

Caffeine is known to reduce the perception of effort meaning you can push yourself even harder in training and racing. It is also known to help promote the use of fat as fuel which is vital in endurance events.

Taurine is known to help reduce feelings of anxiety and stress through its role as a neurotansmitter inhibitor. It is also known to help prevent cramping and muscle soreness by helping with the transportation of potassium, magnesium, calcium and sodium into and out of the muscle cells.

Tyrosine is known to help boost your mood and increase your focus through its role as a pre-cursor to adrenaline. It also increases the production of neurotransmitters such as dopamine and morepinephrine which transmit messages in the brain thus enhancing your focus.
