Science in Sport GO Hydro Electrolyte 10 Tablet Pack

SiS GO Hydro (previously sold in powder form as SIS Super Hydro) was developed in conjunction with the Skandia Team GBR for the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008. It's a virtually calorie free electrolyte drink to provide fast hydration.

It contains a high sodium content along with other electrolytes to provide optimum hydration for intense competition, training or recreation in the heat. It can also be used by those on  calorie controlled diets, or with specific weight restrictions and targets.

SiS GO Hydro also includes either elderberry anthocycanins (with the berry flavour) or green tea antioxidants (with the lemon flavour) which both help protect against damage from oxidative stress.

Each SiS GO Hydro tube contains 10 effervescent tablets to make 10 x 500ml servings.

Recommended Usage

GO Hydro is primarily designed to aid the hydration and fluid replacement needs of athletes and particularly those participating in hot and humid conditions. 

Add one SIS GO Hydro tablet (4g) to 500ml of water and let it dissolve. Once prepared consume within 24 hours. SIS GO Hydro should be used as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. It is not intended as a weight loss product.

Go Hydro is a product from Science in Sport (SiS) designed to help you stay hydrated when exercising. It comes as a tube of tablets consisting of various minerals or electrolytes. You bung a tablet in a bottle of water, wait while it dissolves, then drink it during your ride. As a way to help you avoid dehydration, it definitely does the job.

SiS say that the electrolytes (sodium, calcium, magnesium, potassium and zinc) in the Go Hydro drink replace those lost from your body via sweat. The sodium content especially encourages you to drink the right amount, which in turn helps performance, as a dehydrated body won't function so well.

I've been testing these Go Hydro tablets for a couple of weeks, and have used them during turbo sessions and training rides, and in one of my bottles on a long sportive. They're available in a range of flavours, including berry, lemon and blackcurrent. The taste and texture is clean and refreshing, not sweet or sticky, and this (or the sodium, or maybe both) definitely encouraged me to drink – especially on colder days.

But do you actually need Go Hydro (or any other similar product), with all these added electrolytes, just to stay hydrated? The answer is not straightforward.

Most sports science studies agree that dehydration can have a negative impact on performance (basically, you get tired sooner), and that drinking the correct amount of water helps avoid this. But after that, there's a divergence regarding electrolytes. Some studies show that replacing the electrolytes lost via sweat helps further improve performance, and avoid cramp. Other studies show that you don't need extra electrolytes, and that drinking water is enough.

The middle way claims that the electrolytes in the fluid, even if not actually needed, still encourage you to drink the correct amount and stay hydrated. The final argument claims that it's the taste of hydration products, rather than the electrolytes, that encourage you to drink - because it's nicer than boring old water.

In the end, it comes down to personal preference. On that basis, and from my own experience, I recommend trying these Go Hydro tablets. If you like the taste, and if you feel it helps you drink a bit more, which in turn helps keep you cycling further or faster (or just helps you enjoy tootling around), then it's well worth dropping a tab in your bottle before you set out.

Hydration tablets are also handy for longer rides, such as sportives. It's easy to keep a few tabs in silver foil in your jersey back pocket and drop them in your bottle at a feed stop.

One final point: Go Hydro is not an energy product. There is no carbohydrate content and virtually no calories. In this respect it's the same as High5's Zero drink and the similarly-titled Nectar Hydro tabs.
