Sports Drinks are for Sports

Sports drinks, re:iimmune for illness recoverySports drinks are for sports, and re:iimmune® is the first oral hydration product created specifically for illness recovery. We could end this discussion right here, but let’s discuss WHY sports drinks shouldn’t be suggested to a person who is recovering from any type of illness. The average sports drink on the market is loaded with sugar, around 14 grams a serving in most cases, and not just table sugar- but highly processed, heavily refined sucrose syrups that are difficult for your body to process. Sugar alone weakens your immune system. Studies have shown that sugar causes a fifty percent drop in the ability of white blood cells to engulf harmful bacteria, not to mention the toll processed sugars take on your digestive system.

Sports drinks have their place, if you are a runner extra sugar turns into fuel and spikes your energy levels, but when you’re body is facing trauma, or an illness, re:iimmune® fills in the gap where sports drinks are lacking. When referring to hydration, a healthcare provider would reference a thing called osmolality to define the potency of a solutions ability to draw hydration into cells. Many sports drinks on the market would be referred to as “hypertonic osmolality”, there’s a lot of big words used to explain this term, but simply put, hypertonic would not be a healthy way for your cells to receive hydration on a daily basis. re:iimmune® is considered an “isotonic osmolality” (the same type of osmolality as the human body) which is also the most natural way for your body to receive hydration. This makes re:iimmune® safe to use on a daily basis.

The next time you or someone you care for is beginning a recovery journey, whether it be from the common flu, or a more severe illness, set down the sugary sports drink that’s loaded with artificial ingredients, and pick up the hydration pack that was created specifically for illness recovery. While the sugar and added chemicals in your favorite sports drink wreak havoc on your intestinal track, re:iimmune® works to rebuild your intestinal well being with its multi strain pre and probiotic blend that builds up the good bacteria in your intestines. The Clinical Strength Hydration® formula in re:iimmune® is 100% sugar free making it diabetic friendly and the perfect way to get better, better™ at home!
