Changes in body fluid volume and its composition during heavy sweating and the effect of fluid and electrolyte replacement
We investigated what changes occur in the degree of involuntary dehydration and body fluid composition after ad libitum consumption of an ion supply drink or consumption of water.
The differences in the rate of intestinal fluid absorption between an ion supply drink and water were compared using rats.
We investigated whether the consumption of an ion supply drink is effective for enhancing the recovery of the plasma volume following exercise-induced dehydration.
We investigated what changes occur in the blood volume after the injection of solutions with different compositions of sodium and glucose by continuously measuring the blood volume in rats.
Effects of hydration on fluid balance and lower-extremity blood viscosity during long airplane flights
We investigated whether the consumption of an ion supply drink could prevent the decline in plasma volume and the increase in blood viscosity during an actual long distance international flight
Plasma volume and blood viscosity during 4-hour sitting in a dry environment: Effect of prehydration
We investigated whether prehydration with an ion supply drink could prevent the decline in plasma volume and the increase in blood viscosity that occurs during prolonged sitting in a dry environment.
We investigated whether the consumption of an ion supply drink could facilitate the recovery of the plasma volume and blood viscosity following bathing-induced dehydration.
Effects of a carbohydrate-electrolyte beverage on blood viscosity after dehydration in healthy adults
We investigated whether an ion supply drink could attenuate the increase in blood viscosity following exercise-induced dehydration. The effectiveness of water and tea, which is typically consumed in China, was included for comparison purposes.
We investigated the preventive effect of prehydration with an ion supply drink on the nasal mucociliary clearance under low relative humidity conditions.
Enhanced renal Na+ reabsorption by carbohydrate in beverages during restitution from thermal and exercise-induced dehydration in men
We investigated whether the carbohydrates in an ion supply drink contribute to the body fluid retention during recovery from exercise-induced dehydration.
