In September 2017, we made a study with 7 triathletes at the medical center of the Reebok Sport Club La Finca, coordinated by the cardiologist Cristian Casseus Schurig and the medical director of the Center and specialist in sport medicine Dr. María Jesús Nuñez Gil.
This study consisted of performing stress tests with exhaled gases under hydration with tap water, and 2 months later, under hydration with Alkanatur alkaline water, during one week. During that period the athletes were in a stage of training and competition.
Hydrating the athletes with Alkanatur alkaline water, has shown a significant increase in the time to reach the anaerobic threshold, expressed in a delay in the onset of fatigue.
The analysis of blood lactate after maximal exercise also showed a significant decrease in athletes hydrated with alkaline water, compared who those who did not, and a greater muscle recovery after exercise which is very important in athletes with high training loads.
