JYM Hydration corrects the entire hydration supplement category. Walk into pretty much any convenience store or health food shop and you’ll find a sea of hydration drinks all promising to keep you hydrated and make you a better athlete. Unfortunately, these are all empty promises.
I found the same issues years ago in other product categories, including pre-workouts, protein powders, fat burners, multivitamins, fish oil, plant-based protein powders, BCAAs, and probiotics. So what did I do? I created JYM products to finally get these formulas right for the sake of hard-working customers who deserve better, and that’s why we have Pre JYM, Pro JYM, Shred JYM and SS8, Vita JYM, Omega JYM, Plant JYM, JYM BCAAs, and JYM ProBio (among many other great products).
It took me a while, but I think I finally cracked the code on hydration drinks with my brand-new JYM Hydration formula.
By looking at all the hydration drinks I could get my hands on and breaking down the science of electrolytes and other ingredients, I arrived at the precise JYM Hydration blend that you see now. Below, I’ll give you the blow-by-blow on what problems I found with other hydration drinks and how JYM Hydration solves those problems.
Through exhaustive research, I found three main issues with the electrolyte profiles of most sports drinks on the market: too much sodium, not enough potassium, and no chloride to be found. Let me explain further…
🚫Too Much Sodium
Most hydration drinks contain far more sodium than what the average person requires, potentially leading to elevated blood pressure and increased risk of cardiovascular issues. Furthermore, excessive sodium can promote water retention, counteracting the very purpose of these drinks, which is to hydrate and replenish electrolytes efficiently. It's essential for consumers to be mindful of their sodium intake and seek alternatives that provide electrolyte balance without excessive sodium content for optimal hydration and well-being.
🚫Not Enough Potassium
Potassium plays a crucial role in muscle and nerve function, heart health, and maintaining proper hydration levels. Unfortunately, most hydration beverages prioritize sodium over potassium, which can hinder their effectiveness in replenishing electrolytes effectively. A deficiency in potassium may result in muscle cramps, fatigue, and reduced overall hydration, particularly during periods of intense physical activity or dehydration.
Hydration drinks often overlook chloride as an essential electrolyte component, emphasizing sodium and potassium instead. Chloride plays a crucial role in maintaining proper fluid balance, aiding digestion, and supporting overall bodily functions. Neglecting chloride in hydration formulas can lead to electrolyte imbalances, hindering the body's ability to absorb water effectively. By incorporating chloride, I believe JYM Hydration better mimics the natural electrolyte composition of sweat and body fluids, thus promoting more efficient rehydration and overall well-being during periods of intense physical activity.
A Solution to the Electrolyte Problem
JYM Hydration stands out by offering an ideal electrolyte blend, providing sufficient potassium and chloride alongside carefully balanced sodium levels. This comprehensive approach promotes efficient rehydration, muscle function, and overall well-being, setting it apart as a top choice for those seeking effective hydration and electrolyte replenishment.
Ashwagandha and L-Theanine
JYM Hydration contains two other key ingredients that promote an improved mental state: Ashwagandha Root Extract and L-theanine.
Stress has a real impact on both hydration and performance. Incorporating SensorilⓇ Ashwagandha Root Extract, a natural ingredient, into your routine can foster a healthy, natural response to daily stress. Moreover, research has indicated its potential to enhance athletic performance by elevating power output, encouraging oxygen uptake, and bolstering cardiorespiratory fitness levels.
The amino acid L-theanine promotes feelings of calmness while helping you remain alert. Whether you're working, studying, or excelling in the gym, L-Theanine can help you stay focused without anxiety. As a nootropic amino acid, L-Theanine complements the impacts of Ashwagandha, and in the presence of caffeine in the bloodstream it may also assist in extending its cognitive-enhancing benefits.
Putting JYM Into Hydration
With JYM Hydration, I believe I’ve created an ideal formula to help you hydrate properly. When you use JYM Hydration, you're not just drinking water — you're fueling your body with essential ingredients to help you stay sharp and perform your best.
