A few local pros here in Boulder requested we offer Osmo Active Hydration for women because they found it extremely effective. Osmo makes a product specifically for women because during the menstrual cycle women's internal temperature varies, while sodium losses increase and plasma volume drops. Dr. Stacy Sims developed Active Hydration for Women to address these physiological realities to help female athletes increase power output, improve endurance and avoid premenstrual-related performance decline. Get the nutrition that matches your physiology and see how much better you feel and perform.
Osmo Active has been developed to maximize the rate of fluid absorption into the body and uses only the highest quality natural ingredients. Olympic medalists, Tour de France riders, and pro triathletes know hydration is critical to top performance. That's why they've replaced their sponsors' drinks with Dr. Stacy Sims' hydration formulas for years. Once only available to professional athletes, now you can use the same premium drink as Peter Sagan.
Based on established, peer-reviewed science, Osmo Active is a during exercise drink and proven to be the most effective drink you can consume in terms of fluid absorption. The secret is a blend of sugars (sucrose and glucose) and sodium known to speed absorption with a solution that has an osmolality (or amount of solutes in a solution) which moves from lower solute concentrations (Osmo Active) to higher (the body). Other sport drinks with carbs or additional fuels have too high an osmolality to be easily absorbed causing bloating or sloshing. To avoid bloating and sloshing, Osmo suggests eating solid food for calories and Osmo Active (drinks) for hydration.
The benefits of maximized fluid absorption are many and include increased power output, improved endurance, better thermoregulation and reduced cramping. The sodium citrate in Osmo not only speed fluid uptake, it also balances electrolytes and wards off cramping. A side benefit of the citrate is it aids in cellular respiration keeping aerobic metabolism rev'ed and effectively working.
