Hydrating Athletes with Ionized Alkaline Water - Alkanatur North America

Hydrating Athletes with Ionized Alkaline Water

In September 2017 we conducted a study with 7 triathletes at the medical center of the Reebok Sport Club La Finca sports club, coordinated by cardiologist Cristian Casseus Schurig and Dr. María Jesús Núñez Martí, medical director of the center and specialist in sports medicine.

This study consisted of stress tests with expired gases under normal hydration with water and 2 months later for one week hydrated with Alkanatur ionized alkaline water. During this period, the athletes were in a stage of training and competition.

Hydration with Alkanatur ionized alkaline water in triathletes demonstrated a significant increase in the time to reach the anaerobic threshold, expressed in a delay in the onset of fatigue. Thanks to the calculation of the area between ventilatory thresholds (VT2VE).

The analysis of blood lactate after maximal effort also showed a significant decrease in athletes hydrated with ionized alkaline water, compared to those who did not, reflecting greater muscle recovery after exercise, key in athletes with high training loads.

Hydration with Alkanatur ionized alkaline water increases the performance of the athlete, constituting a simple and healthy ergogenic aid since it also provides high concentrations of antioxidants, crucial to combat the high oxidative stress that athletes present.

Additional help is also provided by the minerals it provides, with the high concentration of magnesium, which is essential in the neuromuscular axis.

Alkanatur's analyses have been tested with Team Clavería's team. Team Clavería is the 2024 Olympics Project, a high-performance sports program in triathlon. The Team Clavería project has set itself the challenge of promoting the talent and physical development of young grassroots triathletes to take them to the top of triathlon.
