About Hydro + Caffeine
GO Hydro + Caffeine is designed to ensure you are effectively hydrated to produce your best performance. As an effervescent tablet that readily dissolves in plain water, it represents a highly practical approach (simply drop one tablet in your 500 ml water bottle) without the calories to meet your sodium requirements at a specific concentration (30mmol/L).
The addition of 75mg of caffeine has been repeatedly shown by sport scientists to improve performance by providing both a physical and mental boost.
During moderate to intense exercise, we can produce up to 2 litres of sweat per hour depending on the environmental conditions. Sodium is the most important electrolyte that is lost through sweating as it helps to stimulate thirst, improve taste and promote absorption and retention.
If fluid and electrolyte losses are not replaced, dehydration occurs which is a major cause of fatigue. Once dehydrated, our body temperature rises; our heart rate increases; we deplete carbohydrate stores quicker and we perceive the exercise to be more intense. SiS GO Hydro + Caffeine can help prevent this, with the aim not to lose more than 2% of our body mass.
The addition of caffeine has been shown to have many physiological benefits during exercise that can collectively improve performance. Caffeine can increase fat utilization, effectively sparing the use of our limited carbohydrate stores for later use during exercise.

What is the difference between SiS GO Hydro + caffeine and the GO Electrolyte products?
SiS GO Hydro + Caffeine contains a specific 300mg of electrolytes, which are lost through sweat. Caffeine is added to provide extra mental stimulation. They are simply dissolved in water, with a minimal 0.8g carbohydrate and virtually no calories. Use SiS GO Hydro + caffeine to hydrate and provide a mental kick before exercise and during sessions lasting under 90 minutes when additional energy is not needed. GO Electrolyte products do not contain caffeine but do contain 36g of fast absorbing carbohydrate so are best for when energy is also required.
What are the benefits of caffeine?
Caffeine has been shown to increase endurance performance by providing a mental boost by improving alertness and concentration.
Does Caffeine have a side effect?
Everybody's sensitivity to caffeine can vary, so it should always be tried in training and in small doses initially. Caffeine has also been shown to increase urine volume, so keep hydrated.
Does this make a fizzy drink?
When your drop the hydro tab in the water, it will fizz until fully dissolved. After this you are left with a still electrolyte drink.
Can I mix this with SiS GO Electrolyte or SiS GO Energy to get all the benefits?
No, as this would provide too much sodium, beyond the optimum levels.
Do they taste salty?
No, they are cola flavoured.
