For Elite Athletes
Dehydration prevention is paramount to human performance. Preventing dehydration increases energy; improves movement, recovery, agility, and thermoregulation; and aids in mental clarity and activity - all of which can improve physical performance and reduce the risk of injuries.Shop Now
Why Effective Hydration Matters to Elite Athletes
DripDrop's patented formula combines efficacy, portability, and great taste to relieve
dehydration fast, which aids both performance and recovery.
dehydration reduces cognitive function
Research shows that a 5% fluid loss can result in a 30% decrease in physical capacity.
DripDrop provides 34% greater fluid retention after exertion than water alone.
DripDrop is 20% more effective than sports drinks in aiding fluid retention after exercise in the heat.
Dehydration Impairs Recovery
For serious athletes, recovering from a workout is as important as the hard effort itself. Proper hydration is one of the most fundamental ways to aid muscle repair, slow heart rate, and boost post-workout recovery, which in turn helps unlock optimal athletic performance.
Athletes Need Electrolytes
Elite athletes experience substantial electrolyte losses during prolonged periods of intense physical exertion, making it impossible to rehydrate with water or sports drinks. Doctor-developed DripDrop provides medically relevant electrolyte levels that relieve dehydration - fast. And it tastes amazing, which means athletes will readily gulp it down!
ORS: A Proven Solution
A 2020 study - conducted to evaluate the efficacy of ORS during post-exercise recovery and performance - concluded that DripDrop is significantly more effective than water or sports drinks in rehydrating and retaining fluids after strenuous physical exertion in the heat. Particularly after back-to-back efforts (as is often the case for elite athletes).
Science that Serves
DripDrop was invented by a doctor to save lives, which is why it is a trusted solution for those who need it most – medical professionals, the U.S. military, firefighters, and professional athletes. With 3x the electrolytes and ½ the sugar of sports drinks, DripDrop delivers dehydration relief fast.
Reviews From The Field
“Hydration sensation. I'm an Athletic Trainer who uses DripDrop with the athletes I work with. They love it. They feel great after they drink it and say it tastes as great as it works. In emergency dehydration situations the difference in the athlete after intervention with DripDrop is amazing.”
“As a Certified Athletic Trainer, I think this product is absolutely essential in today’s athletic world as a tool for athletes, coaches, athletic trainers, and doctors to use to help the athlete stay hydrated and performing at their best. I’ve tried these and they are great tasting.”
"Hands down the best-tasting, most effective ORS on the market for hydrating from regular exercise to longer endurance efforts. Training for long-distance events we tested dozens of hydration powders, tablets, and drinks. DripDrop won for many reasons: ingredients, ease of use, taste, and flavor."
Impair Athletic Performance
A drop in blood volume causes your heart to work harder, causing fatigue.
When your blood pressure drops, less blood flow to your head causes dizziness.
Dehydration causes brain cells to shrink, which can impair mental clarity.
Fluid and electrolyte loss can cause muscles to spasm when dehydrated.
HOW IT WORKS
When it comes to dehydration, not all electrolytes are created equal. We've come to think of sodium as bad, but the human body is 60% salt water. Sodium is, in fact, the critical electrolyte for dehydration recovery. It promotes better fluid intake, helps maintain greater fluid volume, and lowers urine output. Problem is, sodium has a tough time getting through the small intestine on its own.
HOW IT WORKS
A Little Glucose
Glucose helps sodium get from the small intestine into the bloodstream through a mechanism called the sodium-glucose cotransport system. While some electrolyte products boast about being sugar-free, without glucose, this natural system simply doesn't work. Instead of adding unnecessary sugar, we include just enough glucose to keep this molecular team running smoothly.
HOW IT WORKS
To be effective, an ORS needs a high concentration of sodium electrolytes and a precise amount of glucose. That’s part of what makes rapid fluid absorption and retention possible. But the more particles in a solution (i.e., higher osmolarity) the slower the absorption. DripDrop uniquely balances these factors for optimal efficacy and speed. Translation: it works, and it works fast.
HOW IT WORKS
It's not easy to make a rehydration solution that works this well taste this good. To improve flavor, many other products skimp on sodium electrolytes and amp up sugar—which greatly diminishes their effectiveness against dehydration. DripDrop works for your body and your tastebuds - a difference rooted in science. It's a powerhouse against dehydration that checks all the boxes.
