    Osmo Nutrition PreLoad Hydration - 20 Pack - Women's

    The changes in estrogen and progesterone that come along with the menstrual cycle affect plasma volume and reduce the ability to hit high intensities. These are physiological truths that are addressed in the scientifically-developed Osmo Nutrition Preload Hydration for Women. Designed for use before intense efforts, ultra-endurance events, or exercise in hot conditions, this mix counteracts hormone-induced drops in body water, increases performance during hotter exercises, and maximizes sustained power while improving recovery afterwards.

  • Scientifically-developed mix for before intense physical activity
  • Mix designed to address physiological needs of female body
  • Increases performance, maximizes power, and reduces fatigue
  • Not recommended for ingestion during activity
  • Item #OSM000O
  • Osmo preload hydration for women was developed specifically for female athletes and to be used prior to hot events time trials long duration and. High intensity efforts preload for women. Increases your total body water and plasma volume supplies key buffering. Agents for anaerobic and aerobic metabolism and has branched chain amino. Acids to delay fatigue and expand total. Body water we all know that during exercise your working muscles produce. Heat and your body temperature rises when your body temperature gets above 103 degrees Fahrenheit your body systems. Become compromised resulting in a precipitous drop in power and performance what you may not know is that when an athlete begins to feel thirsty she's already at around a 2%. Body water loss which can result in an. 11 percent decrease in top-end power your body works to regulate increasing. Core temperature by moving blood to the skin and offloading heat through sweating for cooling to work though you need to maintain a balance of fluid in your body so you can sweat properly and maintain your plasma volume in hot. Environments and during high-intensity efforts water loss through fast breathing and sweating can be so rapid that it becomes impossible to replace fluids fast enough to maintain your optimal body water this drop in body. Water and the related rise in your core temperature hurts performance fortunately you can prepare for this by. Hyper hydrating which means going into. An event with extra body water keeping dehydration and it's related performance losses at bay that's where osmo preload. For women comes in female athletes face. Greater challenges with regard to body water and sodium losses in these environments simply because estrogen shifts fluid from the blood dropping. Plasma volume by 8% and progesterone. Decreases sodium in the body which also reduces the fluid women need to cool the. Core and to get blood to working muscles. There are three primary things that osmo. Preload for women does to improve the performance of female athletes first the. Sodium and extra fluid in preload for women increases plasma volume and sodium. Stores which in turn increase heart stroke volume and blood circulation this. Increased circulation allows your blood. To go both to working muscles and to the surface to dissipate heat with greater. Blood volume your muscles can metabolize properly and heat can dissipate from your skin at the same time second since. An athlete starts an event in a hyper hydrated state she has more total body water to support the body's thermo regulation system effectively slowing. The rate that her core temperature rises which slows fatigue and enables her to. Maintain power third the branch chain. Amino acids in preload for women helps. Delay central nervous system fatigue and expand total body water these amino. Acids also set up the body to have an elevated amino acid profile towards the. End of exercise reducing the muscle breakdown effects of progesterone and jump-starting muscle synthesis a key. Aspect of rapid recovery in short using. Osmo preload hydration for women before strenuous exercise sets the body up for. Success by boosting sodium stores. Maximizing blood volume and circulation and reducing central nervous system fatigue finally the addition of branched. Chain amino acids help reduce the breakdown effect of progesterone by circulating amino acids which allow you to recover more quickly.

Stresses the body and one of the outcomes of this stress is damaged muscle fibers when you stop exercising the body goes into recovery mode and. Begins to repair the damage caused by exercise proper recovery leads to. Training adaptations which is how the body becomes stronger faster and more efficient to maximize the benefits of exercise you have to help the catabolic. Or breakdown effect as soon as possible after exercise thereby rapidly shifting. Into recovery and providing the body with what it needs to repair and adapt recovery is the most overlooked but one. Of the more important parts of training moreover the first 30 minutes after training is the golden window to tap. Into muscle fiber repair and realize the adaptations you're working hard to achieve although recovery will happen over time if you consume specific. Nutrients when your body needs them you'll maximize recovery and reap the. Benefits of adaptations more quickly women face unique challenges when it comes to post exercise recovery one of. The most significant fact is that the recovery window for women is shorter than for men women have 90 minutes to maximize nutrients for recovery whereas. Men have three hours qui elevated. Concentrations of progesterone inhibit muscle synthesis and women which means. Women have a harder time repairing muscle and gaining the training adaptations they're working hard to achieve furthermore estrogen in the blood reduces carbohydrate uptake reducing the body's ability to maximize. And restore glycogen the other key factor in recovery. The three most important components of. The acute recovery phase are shifting. From exercise mode to recovery by shutting down the bodies break down respond taking in protein to facilitate. Muscle repair and restoring the body's. Glycogen stores here's how osmo acute. For women tackles each of these areas. Cosmo acute has a proprietary ratio of. Glucose whey protein isolate and my similar casein to help restore glycogen and create new muscle cells osmo acute. Uses whey and casein to key milk. Proteins proven by science to halt the catabolic effect on the muscles which is the first part of the acute recovery phase osmo acute also supplies the. Nutrients necessary to facilitate muscle repair the second part of the acute. Recovery phase in terms of protein whey. Is quickly absorbed encasing is a slower. Release protein so muscles have access to amino acids for repair over several. Hours cosmo acute for women as well. Includes a small amount of caffeine peer-reviewed science makes clear that ingesting a small amount of caffeine with protein and carbohydrate increases. The rate of glycogen recovery by sixty-six percent when compared to. Recovery formulas with just carbohydrates and proteins in short the. Combination of protein carbohydrates and caffeine in osmo acute for women is the. Most effective option for rapid muckle. Reparation and glycogen restoration and all of this is based on science which is. Why we can say the osmo acute for women is the most effective after exercise formula you can consume as a female athlete leading to better recovery. Increased training adaptations and better overall performance because if. You train hard you need to recover hard.
