HYDRATION MOTIVATION

It’s heating up!


INTRODUCING OUR NEW BULK 50 x STICK PACK POUCHES


TruFact:  Approximately 75% of North Americans are dehydrated (1). Dehydration can cause unclear thinking, headaches, overheating of the body, and mood swings (2). Keeping hydrated with water alone is beneficial, but maximized hydration can only be attained with the support of electrolytes. 

The withinUs Team found it challenging to find an electrolyte drink that met our high standards. Many electrolyte products (sports drinks) included excess vitamins, unnecessary minerals, and high levels of sugar, and artificial flavours. 

We’re breaking down how withinUs ReHydrate is not only different from other electrolytes on the market PLUS the top 3 most common questions about this premium electrolyte.

What are electrolytes and why do we need them?

Electrolytes are minerals found in the body. Our bodies can’t produce these important minerals and instead must be acquired through food and/or supplements. Essential electrolyte minerals include: Sodium, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium and Chloride. 


These minerals are imperative for two main processes: 

  1. Regulating the flow of water in and out of cells.
  2. Igniting nerve impulses (responsible for muscle contractions and heart function). (3)

Electrolytes regulate nerve and muscle function, balance blood pH and blood pressure, and help rebuild muscle tissue. Dehydration is the primary reason that we require electrolytes. Electrolytes lost after sweating or exercise are difficult to replace naturally, causing dehydration. Rehydrating with water alone does not replace the lost electrolytes (4), which is why supplementation is important after sweating and exercise.



So, what makes withinUs ReHydrate + TruMarine Collagen better than other electrolytes on the market?


withinUs ReHydrate™ + TruMarine Collagen electrolyte minerals are:

  • Carefully selected to ensure superior quality and absorption. 
  • Sourced using the highest quality and real ingredients that will help you reach your best performance
  • A non-GMO product
  • Helps to fuel an intense workout, help alleviate jet-lag, recover after sweating or illness

withinUs ReHydrate™ + TruMarine Collagen was created keeping in mind the mineral make up of the human body.


  • Why does this product contain sugar?
  • Our withinUs ReHydrate + TruMarine Collagen contains only 1g of sugar per serving which is almost 20 times less than the conventional sports drink. The addition of certified organic cane sugar in our withinUs ReHydrate + Collagen is solely for function. Glucose is the most common form of sugar and is used in the body for energy. Glucose enhances sodium and water transport across the upper intestinal wall and into the bloodstream. In other words, a solution of water + glucose + salt hydrates better than water alone. 


  • Isn’t drinking coconut water the same thing?
  • Coconut water is high in two of the essential electrolytes, potassium and magnesium. It is naturally lower in calories and sugar than other sport drinks on the market however very low in the two main components necessary for post exercise and rehydration. These two important components are sodium and carbohydrates. 


  • Is this product safe for kids?
  • Our product withinUs ReHydrate + TruMarine Collagen has been formulated with organic, non-gmo ingredients and the best absorbed electrolyte minerals sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium and chloride. Our current recommended daily serving is based on adult consumption (up to 4x per day). Children are not advised to consume the product in the same quantities as adults but can absolutely use and find benefit in our ReHydrate + TruMarine Collagen! The amount of sugar is far less than conventional sports/electrolyte drinks on the market. For an extremely active child under the age of 18, 2 scoops of ReHydrate + Collagen should suffice, however, please consult your healthcare practitioner if there are any medical concerns.
