One of the key benefits of H³O Pro™, a brand new Herbalife isotonic sports drink available from SK Nutrition, is Hydration.

The difference between H³O Pro™ in comparison to hypotonic or hypertonic sports drinks is the osmolality level which is the level at which a fluid is absorbed. H³O Pro™ gives the right osmolality level of 270 -330 Mosm/kg helping to replace loss of essential electrolytes (or salts) during strenuous exercise in your blood. Water alone has very low osmolality levels as it typically does not contain electrolytes. As little as 2% fluid can significantly harm any performance during strenuous exercise.

H³O Pro™ provides – Heat + Energy + Absorption & Antioxidant Protection + Taste = H.E.A.T

Dan Sanders, Herbalife customer, for the past six years uses Herbalife products regularly to manage his weight for sailing and recently learnt how H³O Pro™ powers his sport!

“For the whole crew sailing in the Ultra Competitive Farr 45 Class at ACC Bank Cork week this year, staying re-hydrated on the water is vital. With our supply of H3O PRO we could carry less water on the boat, rehydrate quicker, stay focused longer and in control for the long days on the racecourse. I would recommend this to anyone for Peak Performance, and the taste was great”

For the rest of August, SK Nutrition is offering free standard UK postage (usually £5) when you order two packs of H³O Pro™ at £21.45 per pack. As always, our products are all covered by a 30 day no-quibble guarantee. You can see more detailed information on H³O Pro™ here.

Your body is a complex machine that requires the right combination of fuel to keep it running at peak efficiency. It obtains this energy from the foods you eat. However, what you eat plays an extremely important role when it comes to supporting optimum energy levels. Here is some information to help you make the right food choices for optimum health.
Sugar causes energy peaks and troughs
Many people are unaware that unhealthy food choices contribute to their lack of energy, with sugar consumption the main culprit. Americans consume over 150 pounds of sugar yearly in candy and soft drinks. A large sugar load initially provides a quick energy boost, which is followed by a rapid decline. This is the reason so many [westerners] feel sleepy after lunch. Processed sugars such as pastas, rice, breads and chips cause these peaks and troughs in people’s energy levels. The remedy to this situation is a healthy diet high in fruits and vegetables, lean protein, and ample hydration.

Water works
Hydration in the human body is paramount to our health and our energy level is greatly impacted by the amount of water that we drink. Even a 5% drop in body fluids will cause a 25-30% loss of energy in most people. Eight glasses of water daily, which is approximately 2 litres, is a healthy amount of hydration. Proper hydration maintains healthy bodily function and prevents fatigue.

In addition to water, our bodies also need high-energy foods to perform our daily routines. All food is broken down into three major macronutrients: Carbohydrates, Fats, and Proteins. Certain Carbohydrates can be a good source of energy, while others can cause imbalances in blood sugar. Whole-grains such as whole-wheat bread or brown rice help to even out blood sugar levels. Other carbs, such as candy bars, sodas, chips and cookies are simple sugars which cause the peaks and troughs. There are also different kinds of fats. Flax seed oil, fish oil, olive oil, as well as the natural oils founds in seeds and nuts, are healthy for the body and help to increase your energy. All trans fats are undesirable, so be sure to read food labels for the amount of these fats in any food. Protein is the third macronutrient which is essential to energy production. The best sources of protein come from lean meats, fish, white meat of chicken, and healthy soy protein. Avoid protein from fast foods, as it lacks nutritional value and is often processed meat. Also remember to stay away from fatty cuts of meat. Look for lean cuts marked “loin” like “tenderloin” or “sirloin.”

Another great way to increase your energy is by drinking a healthy, nutritious protein shake. For example, Herbalife’s Formula 1 shakes provide the ideal balance of protein, carbohydrates and vitamins that are important for maintaining energy levels throughout the day.

Lasting energy
Our bodies require high-energy foods to perform our daily routines and to maintain a level of consistent energy. Additionally, it’s important to avoid sugar, which causes the energy “peaks and troughs.” Remember, the combination of good nutrition, drinking plenty of water and avoiding high-sugar foods, will help you achieve the energy to fuel your day.
