The story behind the ingredients we chose
It provides simple sugars that lead to faster production and release of energy, along with beets and coconut water.
Coconut water is naturally an isotonic drink due to its composition, and helps rehydrate and replenish electrolytes. It also provides the body with simple carbohydrates, useful for energy production and restoring glycogen levels. At the same time, coconut water has a high potassium content, a mineral that contributes to normal muscle function and the maintenance of normal blood pressure.
The inclusion of Baobab in this formula adds to its contribution with its high vitamin C content - which contributes to the normal function of the immune system during and after an intense physical activity - as well as iron, essential for the oxygenation of the body. At the same time, its citrus flavour and intrinsic freshness are the ideal match for this SV Hydrate Matcha & Ginger.
Matcha, a Japanese tea made by grinding the young leaves of the Camellia sinensis tea plant, is a concentration of all the plant's nutritional power, namely its antioxidants. In addition to its stimulating capacity, Matcha offers interesting benefits in terms of mental performance: its high caffeine content is balanced by the presence of the amino acid L-theanine (unique to the tea plant and found in higher concentrations in Matcha), which stimulates the alpha waves in the brain, which are related to mental states of relaxation and concentration simultaneously (1). Therefore, the presence of Matcha in this SV Hydrate (0.75g/dose) may promote greater concentration and alertness during training.(1).

Ginger is a root and spice with numerous benefits and associated properties, especially derived from its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory capacity. Scientific evidence shows that ginger (dehydrated, powdered) offers a progressive benefit in reducing muscle pain resulting from eccentric exercise (associated with hypertrophy training), when taken frequently and included regularly in the diet. It also offers health benefits associated with gastrointestinal function (unlike most anti-inflammatory drugs used in a sports context for muscle recovery). (1) Another of the benefits of ginger in the context of sport is related to the excellent relief of nausea that this food presents - frequently experienced during intense exercise (particularly in endurance running, with a higher prevalence in women).

Camu Camu is a small berry known for its very high level of vitamin C - which helps maintain normal immune system function during and after exercise. The antioxidant power of this vitamin makes Camu Camu an interesting food in protecting the body against unwanted oxidation that occurs naturally during exercise.
