A combined independent study, led by Coventry University and Newman University, in the United Kingdom, analyzed the effectiveness of rehydration beverages following an interval training session in highly trained middle-distance runners.
SOS was compared to an electrolyte sports drink tablet (Nuun) and a placebo of flavored water. The results were resoundingly in SOS’s favor. Within 12 hours of drinking SOS, the subjects had recovered their plasma volume and body mass completely.
With proven scientific results, SOS should be in every runner’s bottle, whether to hydrate between rounds in competition, to use before, during and after a workout, or to help you stay hydrated for what everyday life throws at you.
