Endurance activities are always challenging and as the hours roll on, our body begins to respond to ongoing stress, external conditions, and various internal reactions, often leading our pallet and stomach to frequently change their flavour and substrate requirements.

ISOTONIC & HYPERTONIC – BOTH!
- The Elite Drink Mix is versatile and can be used as both a Before or During.
- For an isotonic solution, you want to mix one packet in 20-27 fl oz (600-800ml) water, with 750ml of water being ‘optimal’. An isotonic solution has the same osmolarity as water, and is ideal to ensure fluid and salt uptake. This is ideal to consume during your runs.
- For a hypertonic solution, you want to mix one packet with 17 fl oz (250-350ml) water. A hypertonic solution has greater osmotic pressure than bodily fluids and is primarily intended to supply energy. It’s ideal to consume this as a PRE, 45-60 minutes before your long runs or races.
- If you consume a hypertonic solution during your races, you may feel the solution to be slightly heavy, in case you find it so, just add a little extra water to the bottle and it’ll tilt the solution to being isotonic.
