Sodium and Sweat Test

Why sodium loss is crucial to your performance

Rather incredibly, the amount of sweat /sodium lost can vary up to 15 times between seemingly similar individuals. Everyone loses a different amount of sodium in their sweat, from as little as 200mg per liter of sweat, to as much as 2,000mg/l - this is largely genetically determined. This means that a 'one-size-fits-all', off the shelf approach doesn't work when it comes to hydration. We offer a personalized hydration plan and guidance on products that will help you meet your needs.

what's involved

No blood test. No need to bust a gut on a treadmill. No need to wait while your sample goes off to a lab for top secret analysis.

Our sweat test takes about 45 minutes and all you have to do is sit comfortably with our sodium analysis straps attached you your arm. While you’re sitting through the test, we’ll talk to you about how you train, compete and walk you through how we personalize your hydration strategy. The test is simple, painless, and extremely accurate.

Your sweat sample from the sodium analysis straps will give us an accurate reading of the amount of sodium (the key electrolyte lost in sweat) you lose every time you exercise. This is largely genetically determined and it's relatively stable after infancy, and so in most cases you'll only need one test in your life in order to understand an important part of the hydration equation.

We combine the reading with the context you give us during the test to create a hydration strategy just for you. We'll advise you on when, what and how much to drink before, during and after training and competitions, so that you're well equipped to achieve your goals.
