What is this product?
O Sports Drink Mix is a powder you add to water. When mixed with 13.5 fl. oz. (400 mL) of water, it has an osmolality close to that of blood (~295 mOsm/kg) that enables optimal fluid absorption compared to water alone. It contains electrolytes, macronutrients, micronutrients, and phytonutrients not typically found in purified water. It replenishes and rebalances electrolytes (sodium and potassium) lost during physical activity. Electrolytes enhance taste and facilitate absorption of fluids, contributing to a more complete rehydration.
