A highly significant parameter which should be particularly taken into account during physical activity is the level of hydration of the body. Loss of water and electrolytes at 2% of the body weight may cause early fatigue. About 5% loss of weight may reduce physical capacity up to 30% (1, 2). At this level of dehydration the maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) may be reduced by up to 5% (3). In order to prevent adverse effects and impact on the body, it is necessary to restore water and electrolyte balance in the body with isotonic sports drinks (4). Studies show that intake of fluids containing carbohydrates during intense workout may help to prolong physical performance capacity by 30% with at least 400 ml of the drink or its equivalent to provide at least 120 g of carbohydrates (5).
The best results are mostly attributable to persistence and proper nutrition (supported by advanced supplementation) to prevent damage to the motor system, especially articular cartilage, tendons and muscles, as well as rapid regeneration after dysfunctions, if any, which may prevent a competitor for a long time from participating in regular workouts and have a powerful impact on his/her career.

ADVANCED ISOTONIC-ELECTROLYTE FORMULA, COMPLEX OF VITAMINS AND MINERALS, PROTECTION OF JOINTS!
HYDRATONIC™ - Product which satisfies the most critical requirements related to both effective hydration - in conditions contributing to significant dehydration - and simultaneous supplementation of active substances supporting the functions of joints as well as vitamin and mineral complex.
- Chela Hydratation Formula - advanced and unique isotonic-electrolyte formula available worldwide, based on minerals in the form of amino acid chelates Albion®, with unsurpassed high absorbability. As a result, HYDRATONIC™ is highly useful for people exposed to significant electrolyte losses which is unquestionable in the context of the presented scientific data.
- Arthro Safe System - a rich complex of active substances with positive effects on the functions of joints. Clinical studies for individual product ingredients (6,7,8) show that they may reduce the level of experienced pain in patients with hip or knee osteoporosis, with additional inhibition of degradation of articular cartilage, thus having a positive impact on the condition of joints in actively training sportsmen.

- Vitamin Hydratonic System - complex of 12 vitamins and minerals, contains a group of the most necessary micro- and macroingredients for sportsmen during intense and frequent physical exercise.
- Synergism of the ingredients is its greatest advantage. The use of each active substance present in the product is supported by conclusive scientific data.
