Common Facts and Questions

Why electrolytes?

We developed this lifestyle product to level up your hydration status. In this day, people are busier than ever, taking less and less time for themselves (due to work, family or other responsibilities). So, self-care is more important than ever too.  Hydra boost is designed to be used at any time to boost your H20 with goodness in the most delicious of flavors.

Why pick Equilibrium Hydra Boost?

Equilibrium was created by both a Personal trainer and a Nutritionist (the perfect team combination). We felt like there was a real gap in availability and access to lifestyle hydration products for the everyday active person - who could use a product like this in a multitude of ways in everyday life. 

We have developed a premium product that has been tasted and modified countless times to ensure it is just right for you! Down to the colour, quality of ingredients and natural flavours used. The flavours we have put our heart and soul into and we believe it's the best tasting electrolyte on the market.

Our levels of electrolytes and amino acids are set at moderate levels to give you just that extra top up of nutrients. This means it can be used as an everyday product (and not just for exercise).

How do I use Equilibrium Hydra Boost?

Add a scoop into around 300-400ml cold water (with ice makes it extra epic) – give it a shake or mix and you are good to go

What do they do in my body?

Electrolytes are an electrically charged salt or mineral. Because of the electrical charge they activate and regulate many bodily functions – specifically to do with muscle contraction and fluid balance extracellularly (outside the cells) and intracellularly (inside the cells)

We can lose some of these special components of the body in many ways – through being unwell (vomiting and diarrhoea), sweating due to exercise or being in a hot environment , and even breathing.

Having an electrolyte imbalance can affect how our bodies function so consuming a variety of foods (and a diet high in fruits and vegetables) and keeping hydrated we can replenish and maintain our electrolyte balance with the body. Hydra Boost can help you keep hydrated!

As a whole - our product supports healthy ...

  •  energy levels 

  •  hydration

  • performance in your workout

  • exercise endurance

  • muscle strength and fuel

  • exercise recovery

What key ingredients are in your products and what specifically is their function in the body?

SODIUM Chloride (salt)- The minerals that help our body to regulate the balance extracellular (outside the cells and within your body) of water and minerals in the body.

POTASSIUM- maintains normal intracellular (within the cells) fluid levels- in the body. Also helps with muscle contraction and blood pressure regulation.
MAGNESIUM- Supports healthy nerve and muscle function- therefore energy production

CALCIUM- The most important part of the skeleton, vital to normal function of neuromuscular, endocrine (hormonal) and muscular systems. 

 

L Citrulline and   L Glutamine-   Both non-essential amino acids in the body that are found in many common foods. May have beneficial effects on health and exercise performance by promoting protein synthesis in the body and reducing amino acid breakdown (or degradation)

Glycerol- Aids hydration and thermoregulation

 Vitamin C- assists in protein formation in skin, hair, ligaments and tendons among other functions
