One serving of Nutrition Water contains no less than 20 grams of high-quality collagen proteins, 16 grams of carbohydrates without sugars, 0.4 grams of salt and more than 24 different vitamins and minerals. This -and much more- makes Nutrition Water the only isotonic protein drink for all athletes.
Not a thick shake, but a refreshing drink
Nutrition Water is not a thick shake, but a refreshing water-based drink. Ideal to take before, during or after a heavy sports performance. The drink is thirst-quenching and easily absorbed, so it does not sit heavily on your stomach.
We don't use whey, instead we use collagen
Our hydrolysed collagen peptides are a pre-digested protein. This means that the protein strands have already been disassembled and divided into directly absorbable amino acids. The digestibility - and thus the absorption - of collagen protein is the highest of all proteins. The absorbability of the whey protein, for example, is many times lower. Collagen naturally contains fewer BCAA's. Therefor we've added extra BCAA's (2:1:1) to Nutrition Water.
Our hydrolyzed collagen peptides, in combination with the extra added BCAA's (fast-absorbing 2: 1: 1 formula), contain: 2080 mg leucine, 1050 mg isoleucine and 1230 mg valine. Combined this is about 4.4 grams of BCAA, with more than 2 grams of leucine.
Nutrition Water consists of pure collagen/hydrolisate. Collagen/hydrolisate consists of +/- 95% protein. 20 g of protein means approximately 19 g of collagen/hydrolisate.
Why we use carbohydrates?
Carbohydrates are extremely important for our energy supply. If you don’t take in enough carbohydrates, your body uses other energy sources such as fat or muscle protein. In addition, the carbohydrates in Nutrition Water do not consist of sugars, but are derived from corn.
The 16 grams of carbohydrates (equals one slice of brown bread) serve another purpose than just providing energy. They make Nutrition Water isotonic, which ensures that Nutrition Water is the most similar to our body fluids, so it is absorbed faster.
If you take carbohydrates after training, insulin is made. The insulin then ensures that glucose and other building blocks (amino acids) can end up in the muscles. Many athletes only want to get proteins after training. But if you only take in proteins after your workout or training, the glycogenic proteins metabolize into sugar. The body always gives priority to straightening the blood sugar level over repairing the muscles. The less glycogen, the more proteins will be broken down.
An Isotonic drink
Nutrition Water has an isotonic character. That means 6% - 8% of the final product consists of carbohydrates. This ratio corresponds most closely to our bodily fluids and can therefore be absorbed instantly. When carbohydrates-ratio is higher than 6% - 8%, it takes longer to digest the drink and gives that typical bloated feeling.
Free from allergens
Nutrition Water is free of allergens such as gluten and milk components. Moreover, the collagen we use is kosher and halal certified ánd Nutrition Water is free of any doping, making it safe for professional and olympic athletes as well.
24 different vitamins and minerals
A healthy functioning body needs vitamins and minerals. Nutrition Water contains the following vitamins and minerals: vitamin A (33%*), vitamin D3 (33%*), vitamin E (33%*), vitamin K (33%*), vitamin C (833%*), thiamine (B1) (33%*), riboflavin (B2) (33%*), niacin (B3) (33%*), pyridoxine (B6) (33%*), Folic acid (B11) (33%*), vitamin B12 (33%*), biotin (33%*), pantothenic acid (B5) (33%*), potassium (33%*), chloride (33%*), calcium (33%*), phosphorus (33%*), magnesium (138.6%*), iron (66%*), zinc (33%*), copper (33%*), manganese (33%*), selenium (33%*), and chromium (33%*).
Why we use salt?
During exercise you sweat a lot, therefor losing salts. If you do not replenish these salts and electrolytes, you get that typical weak feeling. So, drink Nutrition Water just after your workout, game or training, recover those salts and stay sharp feeling strong!
