Why Isotonic Drinks?

Why Isotonic Drinks?
With physical exertion, the body lose significant amounts of fluid. This fluid loss is intensified by ambient temperatures, high humidity, solar radiation. The transpiration (perspiration) is composed of water, electrolytes, energy and vital substances. Already from a fluid deficit of 2% of the initial body weight, performance is weakened in a noticeable way. The fluid balance is performance-critical because our bodies are about 70% water, our blood fluid even 90% water.

Kellermann Outdoor Sports Drinks balance the loss of fluid in a efficient way.
