Isotonic drink – what is it? 

An isotonic drink has the same osmolality as body fluids. It contains as many molecules in 100 ml and is absorbed as quickly or faster than water. Thanks to its isotonic properties, it quickly irrigates and adds strength after intense training. 

Who are the isotonics for? 

For isotonic drinks it is worth reaching only when your training lasts longer than 1.5 hours. If you drink isotonics always (even during a short activity) you may find that you have burned fewer calories than you drank. Remember that isotonic beverages are in most cases sweetened to supplement carbohydrates (muscle glycogen). 

If you are losing weight, but still want to hydrate well after training, put on isotoniki without sugar.
