NASA Develops Rehydration Beverage to Remedy Human Dehydration
MOFFETT FIELD, Calif.,
NASA’s Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif., licensed the patented rehydration formula to Wellness Brands Inc.,
“We developed the rehydration formula to perform optimally under the most extreme conditions. The health of our highly trained astronauts was paramount,” explained
The novel electrolyte formula contains a specific ratio of key ingredients, sodium chloride and sodium citrate, for rapid restoration of hydration. These electrolytes, dissolved in water, optimize the levels of sodium ions in the body. The beverage is an isotonic formulation that restores both intra- and extracellular body fluid volumes in dehydrated astronauts, athletes and others.
