Water or isotonic drinks? The definitive question
Water is fundamental for the body to work, as it plays a series of essential roles:
Lack of water in the body can cause dehydration, whose symptoms involve cramps, tachycardia, headache, etc. To counteract them and avoid health risks connected to dehydration, we have two options:
• Classic mineral water
• Isotonic drinks that consist of water, mineral salts, vitamins and rapidly digested sugars.
If your sport is demanding, choose preferably isotonic drinks combined with water. Otherwise, drink water before, during and after the training session. If you have any questions related to appropriate hydration methods, please contact our nutritionist for more details.
