The “O” Factor™ & Hydration
Dehydration is a drag on athletic and everyday lifestyle performance. Among athletes, it can cause cramping, fatigue and reduced endurance. For the rest of us, even mild dehydration can interfere with a person’s mood or the ability to concentrate.
Being properly hydrated will enable you to perform at your highest level, whether you are an athlete or simply working through your daily routines. Many things affect being properly hydrated, with the absorption rate being one of the most important (The O Factor).
Osmolality (The O Factor) ‘determines’ how quickly our body will absorb a liquid into the bloodstream and cells. The lower the osmolality number, the quicker the body can absorb a liquid.
have an osmolality similar to the body (= 290 mOsmol/l) (Drinks like coconut water)
have an osmolality less than the body (< 280 mOsmol/l) which promotes fluid absorption.
have an osmolality greater than the body (> 300 mOsmol/l) (most popular sports drinks)
AdeNation® is a Hypotonic Solution with an Osmolality number well below 220. This low osmolality allows for rapid hydration of cells to prevent cramping and keep athletes at peak performance. The all-natural AdeNation formula provides your body with the electrolytes and vitamins it needs to stay hydrated and to stay in the game.
Comparatively speaking, most popular sports drinks are Hypertonic solutions with high Osmolality numbers that can range from 320 to 400. In order for your body to start absorbing those liquids, it must first draw water from other cells to dilute it enough to be absorbed and utilize. Those drinks will cause a decrease in physical and mental performance.
Those drinks can actually cause dehydration.

“With the summer here in the south, if I were to go out and walk 18 holes in the foothills of the upstate, I would normally wake up in the middle of the night with leg cramps. With the help of AdeNation added to my water bottles I haven’t had one cramp this summer.”
