The History of Aqualyte

Bates

Aqualyte was developed by Dr Graham Bates, a Medical Physiologist who worked as an academic for 25yrs with research interest in fluid and electrolyte balance for people working and exercising in the heat. At the same time as this research, Dr Bates was consulting to major underground mining companies in Occupational Health and Safety on issues relating to the relationship between dehydration, heat illness and workers performance. During this work, the same question kept being asked, what should workers in hot hostile environments that can lose up to 8 litres of sweat per day be drinking? Existing products on the market were either too high in sugar or did not match the fluid and electrolyte composition known to be lost in sweat. After unsuccessfully trying to convince existing companies to manufacture a drink that was scientifically formulated to replace sweat and optimise absorption rates, Dr Bates decided to make it himself. From this, Aqualyte was born.

Hydration Health Performance Developed after years of research investigating the effects of dehydration on health and performance. The low sugar, rapid absorption and scientifically balanced electrolyte replacement makes Aqualyte a high performance solution for the prevention of dehydration.
