Olimp Hydratonic® Fast is a dietary supplement in the form of effervescent tablets containing substances that compensate the post-workout losses, which are absorbed instantly thanks to the liquid form. In addition, the resulting drink perfectly quenches thirst and tastes great.
Sodium- an important electrolyte, which together with potassium is a crucial regulator of cell excitability - it determines, among others, correct electrical impulse flow through neurons as a result of the stimulus. Thanks to the mentioned cations, and in principle thanks to the sodium-potassium pump, the cell is able to maintain the voltage difference between the environment outside and inside. In addition, sodium affects the maintenance of water in the body, and therefore its decline can lead to dehydration, while the correct level of this electrolyte causes a greater retention of water in the body, which is a desired phenomenon after completing the training.
Potassium - a mineral which is essential for the human body. Although it is found in almost all food products, its shortages still occur. This element is responsible, among others, for the proper muscle function and good concentration, it participates in the transmission of nerve impulses by neurons, and also provides adequate hydration in the body and is an activator of many enzymes.
Calcium - is essential for the proper functioning of the system, and above all for maintaining the proper structure of bones and teeth, of which it is the basic building material. It is thanks to this mineral that the bones retain their properties, they are hard and elastic. In addition, calcium ions are involved in the transmission of nerve impulses and in neuromuscular communication. Without it, it would be impossible to obtain the right muscle contraction, which is why it is so important to supplement its losses - in the case of its deficiency, one may experience convulsions, spasms and in extreme cases very painful tetany.
Magnesium - is an extremely important mineral for the functioning of the body, or is even indispensable, due to the number of processes in which it participates. This element is a component of numerous coenzymes involved in energy reactions such as phosphorylation of AMP and ADP to ATP, hence its high supply improves the regeneration process and rapid energy recovery.
Magnesium is also a component of bones, which are its main reservoir in the human body. This element plays an important role in the calcium economy, which prevents the build-up of calcium in the blood vessels, thus supporting the circulatory system.
This element is also an extremely important in the functioning of muscle tissue. It is responsible for loosening the muscles, hence its deficiencies are characterized by unpleasant muscle cramps or shaky eyelids.
This substance limits the activity of free radicals, thus favourably affects the condition of blood vessels and protects cells from dangerous damage. An additional benefit of the use of vitamin C is the increased effect of other antioxidants.
Without vitamin C, it would be impossible to quickly activate immunity, both specific and non-specific. Thanks to it, the mobilization of numerous cells that are part of the immune system takes place, hence it is necessary both at the stage of pathogen recognition and further treatment of the pathogen. According to research, its high doses during illness can speed up the healing process significantly.
It is also worth adding that vitamin C is present in many stages of collagen synthesis, which is an important building block of joints, tendons and skin. Its proper amount and correct structure allows these tissues to function and reduces the chances of their damage.
Glucose is a monosaccharide, which is the basic energy substrate for both skeletal muscles and the brain. During training, the muscles use it as a fuel for work, while in the case of lack of it, they break down the glycogen which is a substitute substance. In the case of insufficient amount of this polysaccharide, also synthesized from glucose, there would be a decrease in the level of glucose in the blood, leading to the state of hypoglycaemia. This condition, depending on the size of the deviation from physiological standards, may negatively affect the mood, significantly reduce the ability to focus and think, and in extreme cases lead to a damage to numerous organs.
Thus, in order to provide muscles with the optimum amount of energy for work and to enable rapid regeneration of depleted spare fuel resources, which is glycogen, it is necessary to provide easily digestible and quickly absorbed sugars. Glucose, when dissolved in water is a mixture that almost immediately raises the level of sugar in the blood, which is why it is used in case of hypoglycaemia. Consumption of this kind of solution after training will have a positive effect on well-being and will allow for a faster return to full fitness of the trained muscles.
In summary, Olimp Hydratonic Fast is a preparation containing key electrolytes and the addition of glucose and vitamin C in the form of water-soluble tablets, which are rapidly absorbed. The intake of this preparation after the workout will quickly restore the body's water and electrolyte homeostasis and support the speed of regeneration processes. In addition, the preparation protects against a rapid drop in blood glucose and has a positive effect on the well-being and hydration status of the whole organism.
This product is ideal for athletes at all levels, regardless of age or sex.
The supplement is also used as an ‘intra-workout’ drink to increase muscle performance. In this approach, it is worth enriching it with an addition of branched chain amino acids and a small amount of caffeine.

acidity regulator – citric acid; glucose; bulking agent – sorbitols; flavourings, stabiliser – polyethylene glycol; sweeteners – cyclamates, acesulfame K, sucralose; colour – carotenes (for orange flavour).
Glucose (dextrose) - saccharide (dextrose) belonging to carbohydrates, which is a basic component of complex sugars. Glucose is used in the body as an energy source, in particular for the brain and red blood cells. It is used directly or stored as glycogen in the liver and muscles. It participates in the synthesis of alanine, converted accumulates in the fatty tissue. For this reason it is not recommended in programs of weight reduction and improved body composition. In chemically pure form is used as a sweetener. Due to tts energy capacity, it used in beverages used in sports as well as in nutritional amino acid and carbohydrate-protein supplements, in the form of dextrose is the basis of so-called. "creatine transporters."
Dosage: according to individual needs, usually pre- and post-workout, before and after exercises.
Sodium is an important component of the intracellular fluids, and is a regulator of acid-base balance. Along with potassium affects the proper of growth and provides the proper functioning of muscles and nerves. The source of acquisition is table salt (NaCl) and bladderwrack, shellfish, bacon, beef, and of plant beets and carrots. People on salt-free diet should avoid, among others, spicy sauces and smoked meats and sausages.
Sodium deficiency is very rare, at heaving sweating after a long effort (e.g. in the marathon).
Excess sodium increases blood pressure (especially for the elderly), edema and increased thirst. Exceeding the daily dose of 14g a day can cause poisoning.
Potassium and sodium regulate the body's water resources, ensuring normal heart rhythm. Maintaining the proper level of potassium provides the proper oxidation of the brain, lowers blood pressure, increases the permeability of cell membranes (as an antagonist of calcium). It is a base-forming element. It is widely used in sports diet before and after training in the form of supplements, nutrients, vitamin-mineral preparations and minerals, concentrates and ready, isotonic and hypertonic beverages. Natural sources of acquisition of potassium are: vegetable products (bananas, citrus fruits, melons, mint leaves, green vegetables, potatoes) and animal products (sea fish, meat). Potassium is present in the form of organic compounds: citric acids, and fumarates gluconates and inorganic (chlorides, sulfates, oxides and carbonates).
Potassium deficiency (hypokalemia): excessive tiredness, headaches and irritability, problems with sleeping, muscle cramps, constipation. Potassium levels may drop sharply in the event of a reduction in blood sugar levels, prolonged starvation, severe diarrhea. They can occur when too much of strong coffee is consumed, with alcohol abuse and when eating too much sweets.
The excess of potassium (hyperkalemia) is often the cause of depression, hypotension, tingling in the extremities.
Calcium (element chem. symbol Ca, atomic no. 20, the group of alkaline earth metals) is the basic building substance of bones and teeth, in which stored is 99% of the element, in the form of hydroxylapatite. When building bones and teeth, phosphorus is very important in the right proportion. It is a base-forming element and activator of many enzymes (ATPase) necessary to release the energy of ATP. It has a significant effect on blood clotting and regulates blood pressure and neuromuscular conductivity. Thanks to the reduced permeability of cell membranes, it soothes the symptoms of food allergies. Calcium is actively involved in the metabolism of iron interacts with vitamins A, C and D and phosphorus, magnesium. Natural source of calcium are animal products (dairy products, sardines, salmon, sprats eaten with bones) and plant products (nuts, soybeans, sunflower seeds). Absorption takes place in the small intestine (less in the colon), it has an effect on the level of lactose, insoluble fibre, organic acids, alkalinity (low pH). The best absorption have organic compounds (lactates, amino acid chelates etc.). Obstructing the absorption of calcium is caused by: phytic acid and oxalic acid as well as excess fat. Scientific studies have confirmed that the combination of calcium, magnesium, boron and vitamin D in dose 3 mg / 24h effectively prevent osteoporosis. Supplements on the market are both mono-preparation supplements (enriched with vitamin D3) and multi-component supplements, available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
Calcium deficiency disorders manifested in the construction of the bones (osteoporosis) and iron metabolism. The symptoms are: rickets, cramps and muscle tremor, osteoporosis.
Excess resulting from an overdose of calcium supplements containing vitamin D3 for children and adults overdose of calcium (hypercalcemia). Symptoms of hypercalcemia are: lack of appetite, vomiting and constipation.
The dosage administered in various publications are inconsistent: 800 - 1000 mg / 24 h (100 - 500 mg / 24h)
Calcium carbonate – a salt of carbonic acid and calcium, used in dietary supplements as one of the calcium forms, because of its high bioavailability. It is an alkaline salt, which is why it is used for neutralisation of the environment in the stomach.
Calcium is a macroelement necessary for the proper functioning of the body system. It is a building material of teeth and bones as well as it determines their mechanical strength. The proper supply of calcium prevents osteoporosis in elderly people and allows for the proper development of skeletal system in children. It is an activator of many enzymes, is involved in the inflammatory processes and regulates secretion of particular hormones. It is also essential for muscle contraction and determines blood coagulation. Moreover, calcium ions allow for transmission of nerve impulses by synapses, so that they regulate the proper neural transmission.
The demand for calcium increases with training intensity, which is why it is recommended for athletes to increase calcium supply. Calcium deficiency can be caused by high-protein diet.
Magnesium (element from the group of alkaline earth metals, atomic no. 12, a chemical symbol - Mg), one of the most important health microelements, participates in the synthesis process of the disintegration of high energy compounds and processes of transformation of hydrocarbons and fats. It affects the dilation of blood vessels and lower blood pressure, prevents hypercoagulable state. Shortages affect cardiac arrhythmias, malignant muscle cramps, insomnia and anxiety. It is a component of many dietary supplements and found in foods such as whole grain bread, legumes, buckwheat, rice, fish, meat, as well as chocolate, cocoa and nuts.
Dosage of 100 - 500 mg / day
Magnesium oxide – the most common form of this macroelement in supplementation that is essential to the human body. It belongs to a group of key intracellular cations and that is why its adequate levels are critical to maintaining the body’s homeostasis. An active lifestyle increases requirements for magnesium and that is why its supplementation is recommended strongly to athletes.
The most common symptoms associated with magnesium deficiencies are muscle cramps and eye twitches. This is connected with a significant impact of magnesium ions on the efficiency of the nervous system. Its adequate intake helps maintain neuromotor fitness. Deficiencies of this element are also said to aggravate symptoms of depression.
What is more, magnesium supplementation supports healthy cardiovascular function. It is suggested that its deficiencies promote the development of atherosclerotic lesions and hypertension. Too low dietary magnesium intake is associated with arrythmia and increased risk of heart attack.
Magnesium supplements are recommended to individuals doing hard mental work and learning. Its healthy levels enhance focus and may facilitate learning. It has a beneficial impact on sleep quality.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) it is a vitamin soluble in body fluids, can be taken from foods (fruits and vegetables), or as drug derived synthetically. The largest of its resources can be found in broccoli, Brussels sprout, kale, black currant fruit and hawthorn, citrus fruits, tomatoes, Savoy cabbage, potatoes. In fact, intake of vitamin C of the food products does not limit the absorbed quantity. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a potent antioxidant, it is an antitoxic, increasing the immune system due to the elimination of risk of bacterial contamination. Vitamin C prevents rupture of blood vessels, affects the blood cholesterol level. It substantially increases the absorption of iron. Inhibits the growth of cancer cells. Lowers stress levels.
Vitamin C deficiency causes abnormal development of connective tissue, cracking capillaries, abnormal calcification of bone tissue, impaired absorption of iron, scorbutus. With the lack of vitamin C, all kinds of injuries do not heal up properly. Vitamin C deficiency can be caused by smoking; each cigarette is destroying up to 100 mg of vitamin C.
Dosage: The demand is 60-80 mg daily. It does not limit the ability to consume higher doses. Some side effects may occur only with longer taking of synthetic vitamin C.
Ascorbic acid – vitamin C. Its biologically active form is the L-isomer, which negatively rotates the polarised light, so that it is a dextroisomer (laevorotatory vitamin C does not exist). It is a strong antioxidant; it reduces the amounts of free radicals, which reduces oxidative stress, a factor leading to cell apoptosis, which is why it is indicated to be a cause for premature ageing.
It supports the immune system functions and increases body system immunity. It is an essential element of the collagen synthesis path, which is why it positively affects the condition of connective tissue. Hence, it promotes also wound healing and increases the durability of capillary vessel. It is involved in transformations of tyrosine and carnitine as well as of some nutrients, so that it affects metabolism. It can also have an impact on the nervous system functions, as it reduces mental fatigue.
Higher supply of vitamin C is especially recommended in the periods of more intensive body system burden, after infections and in order to accelerate regeneration. The indications for increased supply of the vitamin are also hard physical work or intensive trainings.
