REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – March 20, 2019 ( PR Submission Site ) Researchers at The Foods for Health Institute at the University of California, Davis, finished a study on a hydration feature of the Healbe GoBe2™ which included exercise (inducing dehydration)and drinking water (rehydration). A study was completed by 11 adult volunteers between the ages of 19-40 years old, 2 men and 9 women.
The loss and absorption of water were estimated by changes in body weight observed during exercise and rehydration. The weight was measured in all experiments for each volunteer in the beginning, at the end of the exercise phase and at the end of the experiment.
Volunteers were asked to walk/run on a treadmill at different speeds for up to 15 minutes each.
Following the exercise, volunteers were asked to drink 200 ml water every 15 min (up to 800 ml total volume) over 45 min.
The water balance was calculated by body weight changes observed throughout the exercise and rehydration components.
The GoBe2™ was able to indicate significant dehydration and rehydration stages during the experiment. In all cases, we observed a significant decrease of hydration level after physical activity and a significant increase of hydration level after drinking pure water which was strongly correlated with weight change.
