Maintaining optimal hydration is essential in order for the body to function effectively, especially during and after strenuous physical exertion. When dehydrated, it is important to restore your body’s water balance as soon as possible.
The water in our body contains crucial electrolytes, i.e., important minerals that allow our body to carry out critical chemical reactions. Re-hydrating must restore these electrolytes because they tend to be lost during sweating. Failure to do so can result in a state called hyponatremia, or “water intoxication”, which can cause headache, fatigue, muscle cramps, stomach upset and in extreme cases, even death.
Most adults can maintain a healthy hydration status quite easily, thanks to the body’s thirst mechanism, plenty of access to water in foods and beverages, and the kidneys’ ability to produce more or less urine. In no-active individuals, the normal water turnover ratio is about 1 to 3 liters per day. But for individuals who exercise strenuously, it’s a different story. Their daily fluid needs can be often exceed 3 to 4 liters per day sometimes pushing 10 liters per day depending on conditions.
So simply drinking a lot of water is usually is insufficient as it contains no electrolytes that are lost through sweating.
Ultra Recovery® is a customized formula that contains Hydra4G ™, which is a mixture of chelated salts in powder form. Calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium were selected due to their important physiological functions during exercise.
The inclusion of Glycerophosphate (combination of Glycerol and Phosphate) salts as a base in Magnesium and Calcium in Hydra4G ™ can provide the following health benefits.
- Nervous system
- Blood system
- Muscular contraction (Muscle cramps), eliminates muscle weakness and fatigue
- Bone health
- Improve hydration – replacement of mineral loss due to perspiration.
- Regulatory action
- Metabolism of the body
Having a blend of Amino acids in the formula is a bonus and enhances post workout recovery, reduces muscle soreness, reduces fatigue and improves the use of fat into energy. Protein plays a crucial role in almost all biological processes and amino acids are the building blocks of it. Glutamine is produced in the muscles and is distributed by the blood to the organs that need it. It may help the gut function, the immune system and aid other essential processes in the body, particularly in times of stress and physical exertion.
The Scientific Team of Isaltis-Bernady, the manufacturer of Hdra4G ™ has reviewed the formulation of Ultra Recovery ® and has opined as under:
“Hydra4G optimum ratio of electrolyte will help to hydrate by supplying the essential minerals: Potassium, Sodium, Magnesium and Calcium. The Glycerol contained is the glycerol-phosphate (from magnesium and calcium glycerol-phosphates) will also act as a vasodilator an aid in hydration. Glycerin is a hyper hydrating agent that can lower blood pressure, thermo-regulate the body and induce vasodilation. Glycerin can delay fatigue associated with dehydration for trained endurance athletes. On top of the Hydra4G electrolyte and glycerol benefits for hydration, the inclusion of Arginine acts as a great synergistic agent as it boosts the action of Hydra4G.
When consumed, Arginine is converted to nitric oxide that will increase blood flow through the body. The combination of vasodilation and increased blood flow will increase the hydration effect of the whole formula and give athletes better performances.
While the addition of Glutamine will help repair and build muscles, decreasing feelings of burns and soreness, and promote better recovery and performance, the inclusion of BCAA (Branched Chain Amino Acids) optimizes muscle recovery and aids in increased efficiency to produce energy and consume proteins.”
Ultra Recovery ® has been formulated with Dextrose, which is a carbohydrate. After a workout, carbohydrates boost insulin levels, which actually help your body to more efficiently use the amino acids from the protein. So you rebuild and repair your muscles more quickly.
Sodium Ascorbate is used to provide additional salt that is lost through sweating and also Vitamin C that acts to boost the immune system.
