PREPD Prime vs PRIME Drink: Review
Reviewed by our Expert Panel
28th September 2022
This blog will discuss PREPD Hydration’s PRIME and Logan Paul and KSI’s PRIME Drink Hydration products. PRIME Drink & PREPD PRIME share some similarities, however, there are some clear differences in health outcomes. Let's put PRIME USA up against PRIME Australia!
- Contains sustained fibre
- Optimal sodium content
- Higher carbohydrates but low sugar content
- Does not contain sustained fibre
- Low sodium content
- Low carbohydrate content
Sustained fibre - PREPD Prime contains sustained fibre, which acts as a rapid fluid enhancer before and during exercise, resulting in improved starting hydration. Additionally, it offers gut health benefits by providing fuel for the good bacteria in the gut. With PREPD Prime, you can avoid starting exercise already dehydrated, giving you an edge in your performance.
Sodium - PREPD Prime features an optimal sodium content per serving, which helps in greater fluid uptake and optimizes hydration, resulting in more rapid absorption. A high sodium content is essential for ensuring optimal hydration, which is crucial for overall health and well-being.
Carbohydrates - The higher carbohydrate content in PREPD Prime can provide energy and prepare the body for exercise. Without enough fuel, the body may experience fatigue. While the carbohydrate content is high, the overall sugar content is low, and the majority of carbohydrates come from sustained fibre, which is beneficial for gut health and fluid absorption.
Isotonic, Hypertonic or Hypotonic Sports Drinks?
When choosing a sports drink, it is crucial to consider which is healthier and more suitable for your needs. Tonicity is the concentration of sugars and salt compared with the concentration in your blood, which is essential to consider first.
- Isotonic: similar sugar concentration to blood
- Hypotonic: low tonicity
Hypertonic: high tonicity.
PRIME Drink and PREPD’s PRIME drink are hypotonic, meaning they are low in sugar and salt. These formulas are best for driving fast fluid absorption!
However, while both PRIME drinks are hypotonic and have similar names, PREPD’s product has many beneficial differences to keep you healthy and suit your lifestyle:
PRIME & PREPD PRIME Drink Benefits
PRIME Hydration is a one-step drink formulated to:
- Boost hydration
- Increase energy levels
- Build muscle & decrease muscle fatigue
- Provide energy.
Helping you replenish, refuel and refresh when exercising (Drink Prime 2022).
Comparingly, PREPD’s PRIME range is part of a 2-step hydration formula used to help your body perform and recover more robust and faster following exercise.
Our PRIME formula is designed and scientifically proven to:
- Rapidly increase fluid absorption & boost hydration
- Boost energy
- Reduce muscle fatigue & cramping
- Help enhance the longevity and consistency of your peak performance.
However, PREPD’s PRIME drink also poses the following additional benefits:

Aiming to minimise dehydration by reducing body mass loss through sweat in daily living.
PREPD & PRIME Sports Drink
PRIME Hydration’s formula incorporates a range of ingredients, similar to other sports drinks currently on the market. These include:
- Coconut water - boost hydration
- Branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) - build muscle and decrease muscle fatigue
- B vitamins
- Antioxidants - prevent diseases
- Electrolytes - boost energy.
PREPD's PRIME Drink:
At PREPD, however, our main ingredient is our unique (and patented) sustained fibre, scientifically proven by our Flinders and Yale University researchers to enhance hydration.
Sustained fibre is prebiotic, which resists digestion in the small intestine and pushes through to the large intestine, largely unused for fluid absorption.
Using this sustained fibre, PREPD’s PRIME drink enhances fluid absorption in the large intestine by up to 5L per day.
Allowing you to stay hydrated for a more extended period!
PREPD’s PRIME drink mango flavour is also vegan-friendly, low in sugar and lactose & gluten-free, ensuring our products are healthy and suitable for everyone.
PREPD Gut Health Benefits
With our unique sustained fibre, PREPD isn't a high-sugary formula like other sports drinks. It's a prebiotic, which poses many gut health benefits not offered by sports drinks like PRIME Hydration.
When PREPD's PRIME drink is consumed, our sustained fibre provides a dose of prebiotics that help your body absorb micro-nutrients, feed, and strengthen the good bacteria in your gut.
With this dose of prebiotics feeding your gut, PREPD's PRIME drink prevents gut health-related issues and instead offers the following health benefits:
- Boosted hydration
- Higher immunity & metabolism
- Assistance with weight management
- Better sports performance & recovery
- Vital nutrients
- Healthier intestines.
While other sports drinks require sugars to generate energy, PREPD's PRIME drink doesn't.
At PREPD, we believe in unlocking your physical fitness potential without the need for excessive amounts of sugar or ingredients that may harm your body.
