Review in 2: Precision Hydration

Welcome to the second Review in 2 post; short, succinct with a smattering of science.

I’ve been wanting to review this product(s) for a while now as I’ve been chatting to Andy and Jonny from UK based company Precision Hydration (@myh2pro) about their individualised and tested approach to hydration over the last month or so.

We all sweat – that’s a given – but what comes out varies from athlete to athlete, between environments and even as a result of dietary practices or nutritional intervention (references to follow).

What’s novel about Precision Hydration compared with other products is that they offer a range of hydration products (tabs) that are tailored to your sweat response.

The products come in a range of concentrations (250, 500, 1000, 1500), with the totals obtained from tallying their respective sodium and potassium contents. A free online or in person sweat test are also offered, and these help determine your sweat needs based upon factors such as current training habits, typical exercise conditions and perceptible salt losses during exercise.

Having consulted Andy and Jonny, I came out as a 500, and used the product in preparation for the mass race at last week’s World Half Marathon championships in Cardiff. I found the tabs easy on the palette and stomach, and unlike some electrolyte or other tabs on the market didn’t feel as if I was simply paying for expensive pee! I say this because my thirst was satisfied, I never felt any onset of cramp throughout the race, despite some horrible weather conditions in the latter stages, and the mild flavour is a lot more agreeable than other products I’ve tried.

I really like the range, the idea of personalisation and flavour (or mildness thereof) so it’s a 9/10 from me – I look forward to reviewing their next wave of products due out shortly.
