Why ViDrate

Dehydration is one of the leading causes of fatigue. So whether you are lacking focus at work, too tired to work out or just feel a bit 'urghh', rehydration is what the body needs in order to feel re-energised.


As well as the icons above, ViDrate is designed for everyone to enjoy the great tasting, zero sugar, natural hydration drink. From active kids, families, to athletes and everyone in between. ViDrate can be used everywhere: at work, school & university, at home, the gym, or when travelling! 

- Water is great but doesn't always quench your thirst, ViDrate helps make it taste that much better and comes with a lot more goodness your body needs!

- ViDrate replenishes electrolytes & minerals used during the day, especially after exercise. Even after a normal '9-5' working day in the office you still need to recover.

- ViDrate comes with added vitamins.

- ViDrate contains no artificial colours, flavours, sweeteners (sweetened naturally with Stevia).

- ViDrate is suitable for vegans & vegetarians and is gluten free!

Now for the more geeky bit behind ViDrate for those that are interested...

Electrolytes

Both muscle tissue and neurons are considered electric tissues of the body. Muscles and neurons are activated by electrolyte activity between the extracellular fluid or interstitial fluid, and intracellular fluid. Electrolytes may enter or leave the cell membrane through specialized protein structures embedded in the plasma membrane called "ion channels". For example, muscle contraction is dependent upon the presence of calcium (Ca2+), sodium (Na+), and potassium (K+). Without sufficient levels of these key electrolytes, muscle weakness or severe muscle contractions may occur.

Electrolyte balance is maintained by oral, or in emergencies, intravenous (IV) intake of electrolyte-containing substances, and is regulated by hormones, in general with the kidneys flushing out excess levels. In humans, electrolyte homeostasis is regulated by hormones such as antidiuretic hormones, aldosterone and parathyroid hormones. Serious electrolyte disturbances, such as dehydration and over hydration, may lead to cardiac and neurological complications and, unless they are rapidly resolved, will result in a medical emergency.

You can drink TOO MUCH water alone (this can dilute and ‘flush out’ electrolytes). NOT ENOUGH water (dehydration) has a similar effect (flushing out the electrolytes).

“In addition to keeping fluid levels in your body balanced, electrolytes create electrical impulses that enable cells to send messages back and forth between themselves, so you can think, see, move, and perform all the bioelectrical functions that you take for granted.”

Vitamin B12 


Contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system, and psychological function whilst reducing tiredness and fatigue.

B12 also contributed to normal energy yielding metabolism (Energy-yielding metabolism is needed for all functions and activities of the body, including physical activity and exercise.)

Vitamin C


Vitamin C contributes to the normal function of the immune system & normal energy yielding metabolism and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. It also supports normal collagen formation for the function of blood vessels, bones, cartilage, gums, teeth and skin as well as the normal functioning of the nervous system & normal psychological function.

Interesting facts about sweat

  1. Maximum sweat rates of an adult can be up to 2–4 litres per hour or 10–14 litres per day (10–15 g/min·m2)

  2. The average person sweats between 0.8 and 1.4 litres per day (more if exercising) – electrolytes are lost through this!

  3. Sweat is mostly odourless, the smell is caused by a reaction with bacteria on your skin.

  4. Everyone has between 2 and 5 million sweat glands spread across the body.

  5. The fitter you are, the sooner you may start to sweat during exercise.

  6. Women have more sweat glands than men, but men's sweat glands actually produce more sweat than women's.
