Have a favourite sports drink? Good. Let PREPD make it work harder.
While carb-loading has been a popular approach for athletes to meet energy requirements in endurance sports, until now there has been no equivalent for hydration. After all, the human body can’t store water in reserve. However, using the unique resistant starch in PREPD, we can prime the body to be able to boost hydration and increase fluid absorption.
PREPD is a two-step system that boosts the body’s hydration effectiveness before, during and after exercise.
01> PRIME: PREPD Prime is a pre-workout hydration enhancer consumed 6-12 hours before training and competition. PRIME is designed to deliver an optimal dose of our unique resistant starch to prepare the gut to be able to use its full hydration potential. This helps you start better hydrated and absorb fluid more effectively when you need to perform.
02> RECOVER: PREPD Recover is a post-workout rehydration enhancer consumed immediately after training and competition. RECOVER is hypotonic (low in sugar) and has an optimal blend of electrolytes to rapidly replenish fluids and salts. In addition, added resistant starch provides a rehydration boost in the 24 hours following exertion.

How Tim Reed uses PREPD to enhance hydration
READ THE REVIEWS
From the Pros and everyday athletes – those who use and recommend PREPD for hydration.
"The first time I used PREPD I performed significantly better in my controlled sub maximal cycling tests. I didn't quite believe the improvement so I retested many times over two months until there could be no doubt whatsoever that the hydration enhancing effects of PREPD are very real and was absolutely improving my performance. I would highly recommend to any athlete looking to improve their endurance performance and recovery."
— Tim Reed - 2016 IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion
"Before using PREPD I had great endurance conditioning but was struggling to increase my speed. I had also been experiencing ongoing gastrointestinal issues which could hinder my performance and makes fuelling and hydration a challenge. After using PREPD Prime before heavy training sessions and the Recover afterwards, I am pretty blown away by how it has helped both my gut health and performance. My GI issues have disappeared and a hill route that was previously taking me 90mins, I was immediately able to run in 75mins with PREPD."
— REBECCA BUTLER, ULTRA-TRAIL RUNNER
"I first used PREPD during a tour in south east asia, the weather was beyond humid and very hot temperatures. However by the 6th day of racing after 5 hours in the saddle I was seeing some of my best power numbers over short decisive climbs.
Since then PREPD has remained an essential part of my training and racing. I love PREPD because it is backed by science and not biased self-serving studies. I would highly recommend to any athlete looking for performance gains, to not look any further than PREPD."
— JESSE EWART, PRO-CYCLIST
"With temperatures in a V8 Supercar reaching thirty degrees higher than ambient air temperature, hydration is a critical part of my race preparation. PREPD provides me with a hydration boost that helps me stay focused and keeps my reaction times sharp throughout the longest endurance races."
— TODD HAZELWOOD, V8 SUPERCAR DRIVER
"With a training load of around 18-20 hours per week, I notice a significant drop in my performance after repeated days of hard training. PREPD has been a key for me with my training, I know that I get real and tangible benefits from using PREPD. I’ve used it in all types racing and training situations, shorter very intense training as well as longer endurance efforts. I am extremely diligent with training, preparation, nutrition and hydration. I really notice the hydration and performance boost in all circumstances, and I am big advocate of PREPD, it’s been a pillar in my training routine. And a big thanks to the team at PREPD, I really appreciate your support."
— AMBER PATE, TRACK AND ROAD CYCLIST
"I have always struggled on the run leg of long course triathlon races (running is otherwise my strength) due to my huge sweat rate making it challenging to take on enough fluids, which has significantly limited my potential. Over the last 2 months I have tested PREPD consistently on long training days and in race conditions. I am now convinced it is a game changer and key to reaching my potential. My experience backs up the science, as I have no doubt that PREPD has boosted my hydration, enhancing my performance and ability to train longer and harder."
— STEVE MCKENNA, PROFESSIONAL IRONMAN AND TRIATHLETE
“I first trialled PREPD in training in January 2017 and then continued using it throughout UCI road racing events in the heat of summer. I have to say that I truly believe in the product - my performance felt great after drinking PRIME and I didn't experience any cramping at all throughout the January racing calendar despite some really tough and hot conditions.”
— Emily Watts, professional National Road cyclist and peloton cyclist, SUBARU-GIANT RACING TEAM
"PREPD really makes me feel my energy levels are better at the end of my long runs & events and I don't get that dehydrated "hangover" feel when it has been hot conditions. I recently purchased the new powder in chocolate flavour, love it! I also got a call from the company to thank me for my order and check in with me about my PREPD experience. Great company, excellent product. Thank you PREPD"
— NIKKI PAUL, PREPD CUSTOMER
"PREPD is liquid gold and I used it both pre and post-race for the Taiwan IRONMAN. I experienced no GI issues at all before, during or following the race and I have never felt so hydrated during the run. I achieved my goal of winning my age group and qualifying for the World Championship in Hawaii in 2019. I also managed to be the second female age group athlete finisher overall. I have since used PREPD for Ironman Western Australia 70.3 and have integrated it as part of my training regime. I have no hesitation in recommending PREPD.”
— Mary Mitchell, 59 years old, age-group IRONMAN athlete & PREPD customer
"The benefits demonstrated by PREPD in the Crows trial clearly enhances best practice hydration and is ultimately very likely to improve athletic performance."
— Anthony Meade, former Adelaide Crows Sports Dietitian
