PREPD is a two-step hydration system designed to boost the impact of any sports drink and make water work harder, helping you perform at your peak longer and recover sooner. Consume PREPD alongside your preferred sports or electrolyte drinks and water (rather than replace them) to enhance their hydration effectiveness during and after exercise. Both PREPD drinks should be consumed ice cold and shaken well.
The PREPD range of products are HASTA certified to give confidence that each production batch has been tested by a NATA accredited laboratory for over 200 ASADA banned substances.
The unique resistant starch in PREPD is commonly found in small quantities in food products and has been granted GRAS (generally regarded as safe) status by the FDA as a medical food.
PREPD contains glucose at low concentrations known to be optimal for hydration (<5g/100ml). PREPD is also sweetened with sucralose, a modified form of table sugar, which has an excellent safety profile with no known concerns.
PREPD has a smoothie-like texture due to the unique ingredient in our patent-pending formulations – a specially selected resistant starch, which delivers the unique hydration-boosting benefits not found in any other commercially available sports electrolyte drink or supplement.
The unique resistant starch (RS) in PREPD is resistant to digestion and acts as a prebiotic in the gut (food for good bacteria in the large intestine). As the RS is consumed by the good bacteria, a special combination of short-chain-fatty-acids (SCFAs) are produced. In extensive medical research studies, this combination of SCFAs has been found to optimally promote fluid absorption in the large intestine, which has a largely untapped potential to absorb up to 5L of fluid per day.
Most people consuming PREPD notice no gut tolerance issues and enjoy the taste and smoothie-like texture. The unique resistant starch in PREPD is derived from maize (corn) and is a source of dietary fibre. In a small portion of people who may not have similar kinds starches and fibre in their diet, they may experience mild bloating and gas the first time they use PREPD. Rest assured that 1) this means the resistant starch is working to enhance hydration, and 2) after a couple of uses, they gut adapts quickly and these symptoms should disappear.
