For Training and Racing: ORS is the perfect electrolyte replacement drink to prevent dehydration, hyponatremia, exertional heat illness (nausea, vomiting, prostration), and muscle cramping, while exercising in hot or humid weather. ORS are conveniently packaged to carry in your water belt to be consumed during exercise, as needed. ORS may be mixed with water, juices or other hypotonic beverages. ORS supply all the electrolytes you need for training and racing and additional electrolyte supplements are not necessary.
