Sodium Citrate in PowerAMP’s Rapid Hydration Can Help Improve Sports Performance.

by Rinku Singh | | | 0 Comments

In this post, we tell you what’s in our PowerAMP Rapid Hydration and why we use citrate salts, such as sodium citrate and potassium citrate, as our electrolytes.

We don’t use citrate salts in our formulation to save money on production because citrate salts are expensive!

The reason we formulate our PowerAMP Rapid Hydration with a blend of citrate salts is that sodium citrate (perhaps assisted by the other citrate salts) helps to improve athletic performance. 

Here is the Proof

Several studies have indicated that pre-workout hydration and fluid management with sodium citrate results in superior performance. In an early randomised, double-blind crossover trial published Dec 2003 in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, 17 well-trained runners took either 1 litre of water containing sodium citrate or the equivalent volume of flavoured mineral water 2 hours before exercise. They then ran 5 km. The run times for athletes after taking the water containing the sodium citrate was significantly faster than the run time after the flavoured mineral water. It is proposed that sodium citrate helps buffer the build-up of lactic acid in working muscles, similar to sodium bicarbonate but without gastrointestinal distress.

Need more proof? Check out a double-blinded, placebo-controlled, crossover study from 2019, which demonstrated sodium citrate improved the performance of well-trained tennis players:  https://doi.org/10.1186/s12970-019-0297-4

Or another double-blinded, placebo-controlled, crossover study from 2014, in 200m swimmers: https://doi.org/10.1186/1550-2783-11-26
