Does anything hydrate better than water? Believe it or not, the answer is YES. There is a product that, ounce for ounce, hydrates body cells 200% more effectively than water – while offering a multitude of other advantages as well. That product is the result of more than twenty years of research and development, testing and perfecting. That product…is Aqua-Gard!
When access to clean, safe drinking water is interrupted – whether due to natural disaster, environmental accident, destruction of infrastructure, or any other factor – the availability of an effective, portable hydration alternative is paramount. And no other solution, including bottled water, offers the wealth of advantages of Aqua-Gard. It provides sustained, effective hydration at less than 50% of the weight of water. It’s absorbed by the body in a way that keeps cells hydrated for a longer period of time than water can. It’s sterile, resists microbial contamination, and is effective even in the most extreme environments. Around the world, this shelf-stable, ready-to-use hydrating gel can bring immediate relief to the victims of a tsunami, earthquake, flood or drought…to refugees fleeing from war-torn areas (or living in resettlement camps)…and to those whose water supply has been contaminated by hazardous chemicals. It’s also an ideal hydration option for firefighters, disaster relief personnel, embassy workers – in short, anyone faced with the potential of limited access to safe, clean water.
Aqua-Gard gel packets are compact, sturdy and much lighter than water or other hydration options, so transporting the product in bulk is significantly less expensive. It’s easier to carry, and is less likely to be damaged when air-dropped. It is stable to temperatures of up to 150⁰F and can also be stored and maintained at refrigerated temperatures.
In both clinical and non-clinical trials, Aqua-Gard received a palatability (product acceptance) score of 100%. Using the methodologies of Osmolality, Hemocrit (PCV), Mean Corpuscle Hemoglobin (MCH), Mean Platelet Volume (MPV) and Bioelectric Impedance Assessment (BIA), studies found NO adverse physical effects with subjects hydrating with Aqua-Gard versus those hydrating with water. Heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, liver function, cortisol (stress hormone) – all normal. Body weight was slightly less (due to Aqua-Gard’s ability to hydrate equally with less product weight)…and urine production was reduced.
For maximum effectiveness, adults should consume ONE Aqua-Gard gel packet every 3.5 to 4 hours, although this amount may vary moderately depending on the level of activity, the ambient temperature and the user’s weight.
