Isotonic Drinks

Isotonic drinks for athletes

In the body of an adult human the proportion of water should be around 70 %. Among other things this value is dependent on the age and sex. Women for instance have more fatty tissue than men. But fat contains very little water. The highest concentration is found in the blood, the skeletal musculature and the skin. This life-giving elixir has many different functions in the body. Among others these include nutrient and hormone transport and the distribution of warmth throughout the body. Water also works actively with the kidneys. In this context it ensures that the kidneys can produce sufficient urine to excrete toxins from the body.

But this is not the only way that human bodies lose fluids; breathing and the skin are also involved. This deficit requires balancing. These are some of the reasons why we must drink sufficient amounts. A rule of thumb is to drink around 30 ml of fluid per kilogram of bodyweight each day. The ingredients in the liquid are also important. Isotonic drinks contain added vitamins and minerals, for instance.
