Active children require different concentrations of carbohydrates and electrolytes than adults; Exercise physiologist and sports nutrition scientist, Dr. Stacy Sims, continues to innovate sports nutrition and hydration by creating a healthy solution that provides kids with exactly what they need
(Fairfax, CA – October 20, 2014) - - OSMO Nutrition, the company that launched the first ever line of sports hydration and recovery products specifically optimized for female physiology and based on peer-reviewed science and fieldwork with athletes, introduces a hydration line formulated specifically for kids. Great tasting, made with organic fruit, and containing no artificial colors or hidden ingredients, “Awesome Orange” Osmo for Kids is a drink that parents don’t have to feel guilty about giving their kids. Unlike unhealthy sugary “sports” drinks or diluted juices, Osmo for Kids is scientifically formulated for all kids and all occasions:
1) Sodium: Kids need to ingest less sodium than adults due to lower sweat sodium losses. Osmo for Kids contains 100mg per serving.
2) Potassium: Potassium is needed with sodium to help move water into the bloodstream. Osmo for Kids contains 30mg potassium.
3) Sugar: To maintain an effective fluid uptake, Osmo for Kids has been designed at a 1% carbohydrate solution comprised of glucose and sucrose.
4) Clean and Healthy Ingredients: Staying with the morals and ideals of Osmo, the Kids formula uses organic freeze-dried fruit with added organic tangerine oil to “punch up” the flavor for kid’s palates. There are no fillers nor flow agents, or other ingredients that may cause hyperactivity
“Being a scientist, and knowing the influences of hydration on health, I am very aware of the impact severe dehydration has on children around the world,” said Dr. Stacy Sims, Co-Founder of Osmo Nutrition and Exercise Physiologist. “When I became a mom, my focus on performance hydration became a passion for finding the best hydration solution for my daughter and all children. I developed the Kids formula to meet the specific physiology and needs of sweaty and active kids of all ages: Be it for sports, for general thirst, and/or an electrolyte replacement for when our kids are ill, as opposed to diluting juice, pedialyte or sports drinks. Osmo for Kids is great-tasting and made with organic fruit, and contains no artificial colors nor sugar substitutes, hidden ingredients or additives.”
