It is then stored in unique ready-to-drink sachets with a glass lining to preserve its nutritional properties and prevent contamination.

Why is a serving only 20mls?

20ml of Totum Sport contains the same amount of essential electrolytes that are lost from the body, primarily as sweat, during 1 hour of hard exercise. This covers most sports competitions or a half in football or rugby etc. For those whose events take longer then it is perfectly safe and advisable to take more Totum Sport every hour as required. More than 20ml would be too much for a mouthful for most people.

What about children?

For children take half a sachet before and the rest after exercise for recovery.

Why take this over other products?

The vast majority of electrolyte and performance supplements contain a very limited number of electrolytes, are not necessarily 100% bioavailable and often contain sugars and/or flavours that can cause muscle and stomach cramps. The proportions of all the ingredients needs to be correct to ensure the body can utilise them all and not upset the mineral balance within the body either. Totum Sport naturally solves all these problems.
Many different Champions from a wide variety of sports have historically used Totum Sport and kept it secret because they recognised the performance benefits they got. The contents are ideally suited to maintaining all cellular functions which is why it is so widely applicable and cannot be bettered by synthetic formulations. If you want to be the best and be a Champion you have a better chance if you follow the core practices of Champions. Nutrition is one area where there are no short cuts.
