What is in Pura HydroCharger 90?
Pura HydroCharger 90 contains a precise formulation of carbohydrate, ionic electrolytes, taurine and tyrosine for stimulation, B-vitamins and natural flavourings.
Who should use Pura HydroCharger 90?
Pura HydroCharger 90 is a hydration drink with natural stimulants to give you a boost during exercise when you need fluid and energy. It is an ideal choice for use during exercise and to maintain hydration everyday. It is especially suited to exercise in hot conditions and for those who sweat heavily.
When should I drink Pura HydroCharger 90?
HydroCharger 90 is ideal to drink anytime to help keep you fully hydrated. It is also an excellent choice to drink during exercise. For exercise up to 90 minutes HydroCharger 90 is perfect to use as a standalone energy drink. For exercise lasting longer than this use in combination with other carbohydrate sources such as gels or bars. HydroCharger 90 is especially suited for use in hot conditions when you need to maintain a high fluid intake.
Why does Pura HydroCharger 90 contain carbohydrate energy?
When we exercise our preferred source of energy is carbohydrate and by providing carbohydrate in your sports drink you can constantly top up the bodies limited stores of carbohydrate so that you can keep going at a higher intensity for longer.
What is the benefit of a tri-energy source?
As with all our HydroCharger range, HydroCharger 90 contains three different carbohydrate sources; fruit fructose, maltodextrin and ribose. Each of these are absorbed by the body at different rates and using different pathways. There are two advantages to this. Firstly the fast (maltodextrin), medium (ribose) and slow (fructose) absorption rates of each energy source means that energy provision is sustained and thus the highs and lows of products using only a single carbohydrate are avoided. Secondly, as the different carbohydrate sources use different absorption pathways, your body is capable of taking in and using 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.
What is Taurine?
Taurine is a naturally occurring amino acid. It is found in high levels in the body 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.
Pura HydroCharger 90 includes taurine as it has been shown to increase the efficiency of the processes occurring in the body as you exercise and increase your sports performance.
What is Tyrosine?
Tyrosine is an amino acid. It 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. Therefore, taking tyrosine onboard during exercise can help to delay fatigue, increase mental focus and motivation and stimulate physical performance
Tyrosine also promotes the use of fat as fuel which may be especially beneficial to endurance performance and those looking to lose body fat.
How much carbohydrate does Pura HydroCharger 90 contain?
One serving (25g) contains 22.5g of carbohydrate
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 90 has been designed to be hypotonic to hydrate you fast.
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 90 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 90 do I need to drink?
Hydration and energy needs 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 90 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.
