FAQs

Hydration is defined as the process of absorbing water. The human body is roughly 60% water, so hydration is crucial for everything you do daily, especially exercise. Without enough hydration, your body lacks the water levels necessary to function optimally, this is called dehydration.

Athletes should generally be supplementing water with electrolytes both DURING activity as well as throughout the day. Good hydration is always important, but particularly in the days and weeks before an event or after a hard workout. Use GU Hydration Drink Tabs whenever, wherever, and you'll see a boost in preparation, sustenance, as well as recovery.

They provide a good balance of fluids and electrolytes. Fluids from water combined with the key electrolyte sodium in our Hydration Drink Tabs help your body hold onto hydration. If you drink water alone, the body will expel it quickly. If you drink water with sodium, the water will hang around longer in your body to help keep you hydrated and prevent dehydration.

Sodium is the primary electrolyte lost in sweat and crucial to replace during exercise to help avoid dehydration, and a more serious low blood sodium condition known as hyponatremia. Hyponatremia can be life-threatening, and athletes are at a greater risk of developing it either by drinking too much plain water, or by losing too much sodium through sweat.

During exercise, you sweat. When you sweat, you lose both fluids (water) and electrolytes (mostly sodium). Inadequate hydration negatively affects performance and can lead to dehydration, or more serious conditions such as hyponatremia. You need to stay on top of hydration during your workout to perform and feel your best.

Yes, you can consume too much sodium and potassium and that can be dangerous, but it would take a lot sodium and potassium to reach dangerous levels.

My favorite Item from Gu!

I have been ordering from Gu for a really long time. It's the item I order the most. The Hydration Drink Tabs - my favorite flavor is Strawberry Lemonade - is the perfect product for long rides and/or super hot days. The drink tabs have helped me survive several 24-hour races. :)

Thank you GU! :)

GU Fizzie tabs

Seriously worth the cost; tastes great warm (room temperature) or cold (refrigerated). Easy on the stomach; no sense of upset stomach, whether after a long slow distance run, or a brutal 5k/10k anaerobic threshold type effort.

My Go To Even When Not In Training Mode

I really enjoy the hydration tabs in my water bottles during my bike rides and after a good run. There are days that I have exceeded my training regime and low on hydration and electrolytes. I use the tabs in my water throughout those days I need a little more. Love the flavors, low calorie, so it works well with my diet. Also, these are perfect during my Sprint (short course) Triathlons.
