Science tells us that the average human body is 70% water. But science also tells us that when we sweat, drink too much alcohol, or when we have diarrhea, we lose not just water but the stuff that gives us the ability to retain water.
When our body loses water, it also washes away electrolytes – these are ionized compounds or minerals present in our body’s fluids which have various important functions in our body, such as:
- Regulate Body pH
- Support proper muscle functions
- Support mental functions
- Helps convert calories to energy
- Transport nutrients, and many others
These electrolytes come by with more familiar titles and here are seven of the most known:
So when we talk about hydration, what it really means is introducing the body not only to just water but also to electrolytes. That is why electrolyte drinks are more effective for oral rehydration than water alone. The infusion of electrolytes quickly restores the body’s ability to maintain the correct percentage of water, something that we literally need in order to survive.
Apart from water and electrolytes we also lose water soluble vitamins during the course of the day like Vitamin C and B Complex Vitamins. Unlike their fat soluble counterparts, water soluble vitamins are used up quickly and more frequently especially when we are more active. They can and should be replenished often in a single day because they provide all kinds of mental and physical benefits from improved alertness to increased energy, to improved immune function.
It is also nearly impossible to overdose yourself on water soluble vitamins, because we simply get rid of excess quantities through urination.
In light of all these scientific findings, we arrive at a conclusion that REHYDRATION is absolutely vital, most especially for people who live a very active lifestyle. Actually we’ve known this fact for so long but what we didn’t know is that science also gives us a much better way to keep our bodies hydrated (in every aspect of the word) through rehydration supplement drinks.
This is where AMWAY, the No. 1 direct-selling business in the world and NUTRILITE the world’s top selling vitamin and dietary supplement comes in. The two brand has revolutionize the concept of hydration drinks by developing a uniquely formulated healthy beverage that addresses dehydration while providing important water soluble Vitamin replenishment at the same time, all in an easy to prepare, and great tasting, low calorie drink.
In an event yesterday at The Wholesome Table in Bonifacio Highstreet, AMWAY Philippines together with Ms. Audra Davies, the Vice-President of Amway Product Development – Nutrition, Beauty and Homecare, introduced to the media the NUTRILITE PHYTOPOWDER which comes in individual foil packs that lets you bring your hydration solution conveniently everywhere.
Also present during the event were Andrea Dumancas, Head of Attraction, Kittkat Cruz-Diestro, Marketing Innovation Lead and Diana Garcia, Regional Product Trainer.
Three things distinguishes Nutrilite PhytoPowder from other hydration drinks in the market today:
- It contains B vitamins and phytonutrients
- It is a low calorie drink that contains 3g of dietary fibers
- It is the only hydration drink in the Philippines that contains Red Orange which helps lower the effects of oxidative stress
PhytoPowder is phytonutrient and fiber enhanced. Phytonutrients are plant based compounds with myriad benefits that were first identified by Nutrilite founder Carl Rhenborg in 1934. Phytonutrients are powerful antioxidants, and have been found to have color specific benefits. The color of the plant from which a particular Phytonutrient is extracted determines what benefits it delivers.
The benefits of phytonutrients are as diverse as improved vision, improved mental alertness, improved joints, prostate health, cellular health and many more. The benefits of fiber are well documented, particularly its role in digestion, nutrient absorption and detoxification.
The suggested intake of Nutrilite PhytoPowder is one foil pack a day mixed in 250ml of water – add a couple of ice or chill for a refreshing cold drink anytime of the day.
To get the same benefits as PhytoPowder from other so-called “healthy” beverages, you would probably end up having to drink more than one “healthy” drink, combined with a supplement or two, and yet still you wouldn’t get phytonutrients. This makes PhytoPowder the perfect hydration companion for those with busy or extra active lifestyles.
Nutrilite PhytoPowder comes in two variants, Refresh Lemon for regular hydration, and Electrolyte Orange for those extra active days. One box contains 20 foil packs and is available for only 1,100 Pesos. Nutrilite is exclusively distributed in the Philippines and globally by Amway.
