Osmolality 101

Osmolality is a measure of how much “stuff” is in your total nutrition plan. If there is too much “stuff” (remember it's the combination of ALL your drink, food, gels and any salt pills), the solution in your gut will be too dense and your body will treat it like you just ate a ham sandwich. Your system will attempt to process it diverting blood and water from your muscles, resulting in gastric distress, dehydration, cramping, and possibly a DNF.

Osmolality 101...the basics.

Osmolality is a measure of how much “stuff” is in your total nutrition plan. If there is too much “stuff” (remember it's the combination of ALL your drink, food, gels and any salt pills), the solution in your gut will be too dense and your body will treat it like you just ate a ham sandwich. Your system will attempt to process it diverting blood and water from your muscles, resulting in gastric distress, dehydration, cramping, and possibly a DNF.

Fluids supplied with osmolality above 300mosm/kg, (i.e. hypertonic solutions), cause not only delays in gastric emptying but also more importantly will cause fluid shifts from the body to the gut before absorption occurs. Such delays in rehydration introduce the real potential to delay and reduce performance. (Alonso, 1998, Hargreaves, 1991, Sowka et al, 2000).

The optimal nutrition solution is one that you can controll the exact osmolality of what is in your gut. This is virtually impossible when using a combination of various gels, food, salt pills and drinks. INFINIT's patented Osmo-fit system puts all of your hydration, calories, electrolyte and proteins in one simple isotonic form that is virtually impossible to mess up. Simplicity is the key for consistantcy and achiving your goals. You can have the best ingredients in the world but if they are too highly concentrated, or the mix is wrong, you might as well be trying to compete while eating a cheeseburger.

Simplicity, repeatability and controlling osmolality is the key to the effectiveness of any nutrition plan. Be sure to take a look at our product comparison to see how our competition stacks up.
