					Aqualyte
Fluid and electrolyte supplement for workers and sports people

Aqualyte is a rapidly absorbed fluid and electrolyte replacement solution for workers and athletes performing
in hot environments.

Aqualyte is scientifically formulated on published scientific research to be the premium fluid and electrolyte
solution.

Aqualyte is a HYPOTONIC solution which studies have shown are more effective than isotonic drinks or plain
water which means Aqualyte will move from the gut into the blood supply over 50% faster.

The composition of Aqualyte has been specifically formulated based on the electrolyte composition being lost
in sweat. This not only ensures the osmolality of Aqualyte is HYPOTONIC but it helps maintains the body's
normal electrolyte balance which facilitates thermoregulation and optimal neuromuscular performance.




AQUALYTE Solution

       Prevents dehydration through rapid fluid and electrolyte absorption
       Maintains the correct electrolyte balance.
       Fewer calories than other fluid replacement drinks.
       Delays the onset of fatigue.
       Contains appropriate levels of glucose to provide energy for muscular work.
       Less acidic than other fluid replacement drinks.
       Aids concentration in work and sport rather than contribute to attention deficit disorders which many
       caffeine rich drinks do.




Aqualyte - FAQs
What is Aqualyte Solution?

Aqualyte is a crystallised powder which when mixed with water makes a scenically formulated fluid and
electrolyte solution for workers and athletes where the replacement of fluid loss through sweating is critical
for effective performance.

Extensive scientific research has been undertaken on the prevention of heat illness and dehydration and
Aqualyte has been formulated based on this published research into hydration, fatigue and their relationship
to performance and productivity.
Why is Aqualyte Solution different to other sports or fluid replacement drinks?

Absorption Rate

The vast majority of sports drinks and cordials available are often referred to as
ISOTONIC beverages.

The osmolality of blood and body fluids is approximately 290mosmol/L and most
sport replacement drinks are of similar value or higher. This results in the beverage
emptying slowly from the gut, often causing a feeling of fullness or bloating and
slowing absorption into the body.

Aqualyte is a HYPOTONIC solution with an osmolality of 150mosmol/L.

Studies have shown that HYPOTONIC drinks are more effective than isotonic drinks or plain water which
means Aqualyte will move from the gut into the blood supply over 50% faster.

Electrolyte Balance

The composition of Aqualyte has been specifically formulated based on the electrolyte composition being lost
in sweat.

This not only ensures the osmolality of Aqualyte is HYPOTONIC but it maintains the body's normal electrolyte
balance which facilitates thermoregulation and optimal neuromuscular performance.

Why is Aqualyte Solution the preferred rehydration drink?

             Prevents dehydration as it is rapidly absorbed keeping pace with sweat losses.
             Maintains the correct electrolyte balance.
             Contains appropriate levels of glucose to provide energy for muscular work.
             Delays the onset of fatigue.
             Fewer calories than other fluid replacement drinks, cordials and soft drinks.
             Less acidic than other fluid replacement drinks.
             Aids concentration in work and sport rather than contribute to attention deficit disorders which
             many caffeine rich drinks do.

How is Aqualyte Prepared and Consumed?

             Aqualyte is provided in crystal form in 80gram sachets for mixing with 2 litres of water.
             Pour crystals into water and stir or shake until the crystals have dissolved. Drink chilled.
             Aqualyte can be kept for 2 weeks in a refrigerator when made up.
             Consume Aqualyte throughout working shifts and sports activity in proportion to sweat loss.
             Do not rely on thirst as an indicator of the need for fluid replacement.
             Aqualyte is suitable for children and adults of all ages.
