FAQs

What is PREPD?
PREPD is an Australian born hydration enhancer designed to increase athletic performance and recovery by incorporating the life-saving science of Resistant Starch developed by the World Health Organisation, for third-world communities.

Our independent peer-reviewed study have shown that our sports focused patented Resistant Starch Formula can reduce body mass loss, through sweat, by up to 85% and increase fluid absorption by up to 39%. These astounding results mean you can consistently train harder and recover quicker, putting you on the fast track to achieving your health goals!

How does PREPD work?
PREPD is designed to enhance the body's ability to absorb fluid, allowing you to 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.

For the ultimate hydration boost we have created a Two-Step Hydration system:

  • PRIME before exercise to boost performance
  • RECOVER after exercise to enhance the repair of damaged tissue.

What's in PREPD Recovery?
Designed for enhanced rehydration, PREPD 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 and should be consumed immediately after training and competition.

PREPD Recover Powder range has the additional benefits of Whey Protein Isolate and Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA's) to optimise muscle repair.

What is Prime?
PREPD Prime is a performance enhancer based on ground breaking science. It is designed to deliver an optimal dose of our unique resistant starch which unlocks the gut's full hydration potential. This helps you start better hydrated and absorb fluid more effectively when you need to perform. PREPD Prime MUST be consumed 12-18 hours before a workout, training or competition to allow for gut absorption.

What is Resistant Starch...? It's fibre!
Used in all our products, our unique resistant starch formula is high in dietary fibre, resistant to digestion and acts as a prebiotic (food for good bacteria in the large intestine) for the gut. As the resistant starch is consumed by the good bacteria, a special combination of short-chain-fatty-acids are produced. Extensive medical research shows that this combination of short-chain-fatty-acids has been found to optimally promote fluid absorption in the large intestine, which has a largely untapped potential to absorb up to an extra 5L of fluid per day.

Is PREPD gluten free, lactose free or vegan friendly?
Yes, PREPD Drinks are all gluten free, lactose free. The Mango/Passionfruit flavour is also vegan friendly.

The PREPD Powder range is gluten free, however the powder is milk based, so it is not vegan friendly or lactose free.
