Need for fluids.
Dehydration adversely affects worker productivity, safety and morale.1 Loss of fluids can cause Dehydration, Heat Stress, and Fatigue (DHF), the effects of which include decreased cognitive abilities, reduced performance and slowed reaction times.2,3,4 This can lead to reduced output and careless work practices which may contribute to serious accidents in the workplace.

At just 1% dehydration, productivity reduces by about 12%.1,2 At 2% dehydration, heart rate increases by 8 beats per minute (bpm) which increases perception of effort and reduces body performance by up to 30%.

At 3% dehydration, heart rate increases by 12bpm and performance is reduced by 25-50%. Reaction time is also slowed to levels similar to that of having a .08 Blood Alcohol Content (.03 above the legal driving limit).

At .08 BAC (Blood Alcohol Content) drivers are five times more likely to be in a car accident.7 Similarly the more dehydrated workers become, the more a Loss Time Incident (LTI) is likely to occur.

Drinking water replaces lost fluids but not essential salts, minerals, carbohydrates and amino acids needed to maintain optimum performance and productivity.

Sweat contains water, and essential salts known as electrolytes. In a thermally stressful environment like a mine site where workers can sweat anywhere from 1L-2.5L per hour,6,8,9 a specially formulated mixture of Electrolyte salts is required to replace fluid losses and re-establish the correct fluid-electrolyte balance.

Electrolyte drinks increase water retention by 25% compared with drinking water, assisting workers to avoid dehydration.

The addition of other ingredients such as Amino Acids will help the body to maintain stamina during prolonged physical activity.

What are Electrolytes?
Electrolytes are naturally occurring essential minerals that control osmosis or movement of water within the body. Electrolytes also help maintain the acid-base balance required for normal cellular activities.

The body depends on electrolytes to perform vital functions by sending electrical signals from the brain to nerves that activate your muscles to perform mechanical functions. Maintaining this electrical capability and voltage output of cellular communication is dependent on electrolytes.

Most bodily functions require electrolytes, especially during neuromuscular processes. When the body loses fluid and electrolytes, both must be replaced for the body to rehydrate, retain fluid and return to efficient functioning before heat illness sets in.
