BACKGROUND The identification of beverages that promote longer-term fluid retention and maintenance of fluid balance is of real clinical and practical benefit in situations in which free access to fluids is limited or when frequent breaks for urination are not desirable. [] Key MethodDESIGN Each subject (n = 72, euhydrated and fasted male subjects) ingested 1 L still water or 1 of 3 other commercially available beverages over a period of 30 min.

Figures and Tables from this paper

Neither body mass nor sex influences beverage hydration index outcomes during randomized trial when comparing 3 commercial beverages.

The results suggest that the BHI may be used and interpreted with confidence independently of body mass or sex, and a novel carbohydrate-free AA-ORS and a traditional commercially available G-ORS were superior to water in optimizing hydration, whereas SpD was not.

A randomized trial to assess beverage hydration index in healthy older adults.

Beverage Na+ content progressively increased BHI in young adults independent of glucose or AA content and was still in flux beyond 2 h in AA-60 (P < 0.05), and a 4-h BHI may be more appropriate for older adults due to attenuated urine excretion rates.

Hydration Efficacy of a Milk Permeate-Based Oral Hydration Solution

The BHI for MPS was significantly higher at all time points compared to water and CES but did not differ between CES and water at any time point, suggesting that a beverage containing milk permeate is superior toWater and a traditional CES at sustaining positive fluid balance post-ingestion.

The Beverage Hydration Index: Influence of Electrolytes, Carbohydrate and Protein

Electrolyte content appears to make the largest contribution in hydration properties of beverages for young adults when consumed at rest, although the combination with carbohydrate or dipeptides increased fluid retention, although this occurred earlier for the sports drink than the dipePTide beverage.

The Use of Milk as Hydrating Beverage after Cycle Ergometer Exercise Impacts on Food Patterns ?

SMW was considered adequate for hydration purposes and its use should be recommended considering individual aspects.

Sucrose and Sodium but not Caffeine Content Influence the Retention of Beverages in Humans Under Euhydrated Conditions.

The data highlight that the key drivers promoting differences in the fluid retention potential of beverages when euhydrated are energy density, likely through slowed fluid delivery to the circulation (carbohydrate content effect), or electrolyte content through improved fluid retention (sodium content effect).

Impact of Nuun Electrolyte Tablets on Fluid Balance in Active Men and Women

The addition of Nuun electrolyte tablets to water improves the fluid balance and BHI in healthy men and women, suggesting that additional electrolytes are not necessary when in a rested state.

The Diuretic Action of Weak and Strong Alcoholic Beverages in Elderly Men: A Randomized Diet-Controlled Crossover Trial

Only moderate amounts of stronger alcoholic beverages, such as wine and spirits, resulted in a short and small diuretic effect in elderly men.

Efficacy of Glucose or Amino Acid–Based Commercial Beverages in Meeting Oral Rehydration Therapy Goals After Acute Hypertonic and Isotonic Dehydration

The results of this study demonstrate superior rehydration when using AA compared with SP for both hypertonic and isotonic dehydration.



Hydration Status over 24-H Is Not Affected by Ingested Beverage Composition

There were no differences in providing adequate hydration over a 24-h period in free-living, healthy adult males, confirming that beverages of varying composition are equally effective in hydrating the body.

Hydration status and the diuretic action of a small dose of alcohol.

The results suggest that the diuretic action of alcohol is blunted when the body is Hypohydrated, and more urine was produced on both euhydrated trials than either of the hypohydrated trials.

There would appear to be no clear basis for refraining from caffeine containing drinks in situations where fluid balance might be compromised and the most ecologically valid of the published studies offers no support for the suggestion that consumption of caffeine-containing beverages as part of a normal lifestyle leads to fluid loss in excess of the volume ingested or is associated with poor hydration status.

Restoration of fluid balance after exercise-induced dehydration: effects of alcohol consumption.

It is suggested that alcohol has a negligible diuretic effect when consumed in dilute solution after a moderate level of hypohydration induced by exercise in the heat, and whether the rehydration beverage is alcohol free or contains up to 2% alcohol, but drinks containing 4% alcohol tend to delay the recovery process.

The Effect of Caffeinated, Non-Caffeinated, Caloric and Non-Caloric Beverages on Hydration

The across-treatment weight loss observed suggests that optimal fluid intake may be higher than common recommendations, and advising people to disregard caffeinated beverages as part of the daily fluid intake is not substantiated by the results of this study.

Milk as an effective post-exercise rehydration drink

The results of the present study suggest that milk can be an effective post-exercise rehydration drink and can be considered for use after exercise by everyone except those individuals who have lactose intolerance.

Assessing Hydration Status and Reported Beverage Intake in the Workplace

A large proportion of subjects exhibited urine values indicating Hypohydration, and many remained in a state of hypohydration at the end of the shift.

Scientific Opinion on Dietary Reference Values for water

This Opinion of the EFSA Panel on Dietetic Products, Nutrition, and Allergies (NDA) deals with the setting of dietary reference values for water for specific age groups, and the same AIs as for adults are defined for the elderly.

Implications of active lifestyles and environmental factors for water needs and consequences of failure to meet those needs.

Body water deficits, if sufficiently severe, also have adverse effects on measures of mood and on some elements of cognitive function and result in an increased subjective rating of the perception of effort.

Glycemic index of foods: a physiological basis for carbohydrate exchange.

The effect of different foods on the blood glucose levels was fed individually to groups of 5 to 10 healthy fasting volunteers, and a significant negative relationship was seen between fat and protein and postprandial glucose rise but not with fiber or sugar content.
