Zero-calorie Aqua-Lyte hydrates as well as leading sports drink
Date:5/30/2008

A new study presented at the American College of Sports Medicine Annual Meeting today, demonstrates that Aqua-Lyte, an all natural, zero-calorie, zero sweetener water beverage, developed by researchers for Scientific Food Solutions, LLC, for active persons hydrates as well as a leading sports/electrolyte drink, but does not contain any of the sugars, calories, and artificial ingredients many sports beverages offer consumers.

Gretchen Reece, President of Scientific Food Solutions (http://www.scientificfoodsolutions.com) said, Aqua-Lyte is for all active people who do not want or need the extra calories or artificial ingredients provided in many traditional sports drinks. Our pilot study shows that Aqua-Lyte equals the hydration effects of a leading sports/electrolyte beverage, but only Aqua-Lyte is designed with the calorie-conscious female fitness fan in mind. With added electrolytes but no artificial sweeteners or ingredients, Aqua-Lyte tastes like water but hydrates as well as a sports drink. Aqua-Lyte didnt cause the uncomfortable full, bloated feeling reported with the sugar-containing sports beverage. We believe Aqua-Lyte is the only zero-calorie, hydration and fitness beverage scientifically proven to hydrate as well as a leading sports drink.

Dr. Douglas Kalman, one of the lead researchers with Miami Research Associates, said, The findings from this study are real and relevant to any individual who is concerned about their hydration as well as their waistline. Beverages such as the one tested in this study, appear to offer many advantages over the typical and popular sports beverage and thus should be considered amongst the preferred drinks for the recreationally active individual.

Latest Clinical Findings

A clinical trial comparing the hydration effects of Aqua-Lyte, a new zero-calorie hydration beverage to leading sugar/calorie-containing sports drink.

Methods

A prospective, randomized, open-label, comparator, crossover trial involving 10 healthy females (ages 18-45 inclusive) with a history of at least 6 months exercise experience. At each of two testing visits, separated by 3 days, subjects walked on a treadmill for 60 minutes at 3.5 mph and a 5% grade in hot, humid conditions (91 104F, 40 56% relative humidity) designed with the intent to induce a 2 3 % reduction in body weight (due to sweat losses). Subjects then consumed 2.5 cups of Aqua-Lyte or the comparison beverage for each pound of body weight lost during the treadmill exercise. The order in which subjects received each beverage was determined by a randomized product-visit sequence assignment. Several measures of hydration (serum osmolality, hematocrit, serum sodium, serum potassium, urine specific gravity and body weight) were measured before and immediately after exercise, immediately after beverage consumption and at 30, 60, 90 and 120 minutes after beverage consumption. At the same time periods, subjects recorded both their thirst and taste assessment of the product using a 10-point Likert scale.

Results

There were no statistically significant differences in any measure of hydration. Subjective comments regarding taste and comfort favored Aqua-Lyte over the other sports drink.

Conclusions

Among active women, Aqua-Lyte a zero-calorie water beverage rehydrates after exercise as well as a leading, sugar-containing hydration beverage.
