Premier League side, Burnley FC use O.R.S Hydration Tablets

Premier League football team Burnley FC have welcomed O.R.S. Hydration Tablets to their team. Burnley FC have found that by incorporating O.R.S into their hydration guidelines during training and on match days, it ensures their players’ performance is better. Burnley FC won 2-0 against Liverpool on August 21st 2016, and used O.R.S to stay hydrated and focused on the pitch throughout.

Maintaining hydration levels is an essential part of a player’s nutritional guidelines, as a 2-3% reduction in body mass via water loss can result in a higher incidence of injuries and cramp. These tablets are used by professional athletes around the world due to the scientifically balanced formulation combined with its great taste. O.R.S is designed to meet the hydration demands of performance and is an excellent aid to deal with the demands of physical exercise.

We are pleased to be working with Burnley FC and wish them the very best for the rest of the season.

Clinova and Saracens continue successful partnership

Clinova, the UK based global consumer healthcare company are relishing their on-going partnership with the London-based Rugby Club. In the first season Saracens endorsed Clinova’s flagship product O.R.S, they not only retained their status as domestic champions but also lifted the European Champions Cup. A landmark achievement made only sweeter by the fact that their international campaign was faultless, making them the first team to win a European cup without losing a game.

Through this strategic partnership, Clinova supplied the team’s medical staff with the innovative product O.R.S. The effervescent hydration tablets are a scientifically balanced formula of glucose; electrolytes and minerals, which allow for optimal hydration when added to water.

How well do different drinks hydrate you?

Just what the Doctor ordered…

Dehydration and rehydration are important factors to maintain both health and performance. People choose to hydrate in a number of different ways after exercise – whether it be water, a sports drink, Oral Rehydration Solution (ORS) or milk. This study carried out by Runners World looked at which of these drinks stays in the body the longest and therefore hydrates you more effectively.

The results? Oral Rehydration Solution is the most hydrating drink due to the sodium and glucose content.

Clinova’s O.R.S® hydration tablets contain a combination of glucose, salts and electrolyte’s and help replenish the body of water and salts that have been lost through sweat.


A new “hydration index” tests how fast water, juice, beer, milk, coffee and other drinks pass through your system.


Not all drinks take the same amount of time to reach your bladder. This fact, a team of researchers write in a recent American Journal of Clinical Nutrition article, “is of real clinical and practical benefit in situations in which free access to fluids is limited or when frequent breaks for urination are not desirable.”

Sounds a lot like a long run, doesn’t it?

As it turns out, there are a lot of factors that affect how quickly you pee out a given drink. For example, drinks with lots of calories or electrolytes tend to be retained in the body for longer, while diuretics like caffeine and alcohol speed things along. How much you drink at a time also has an influence. And despite all the folk-wisdom out there, there’s very little actual data comparing different drinks.

To address this gap, researchers led by the University of Loughborough’s Ron Maughan, along with colleagues from Bangor University and the University of Stirling, recruited 72 subjects to test 13 different drinks (each subject tested water plus three other drinks). At each testing session, the subjects drank a liter of the chosen beverage, then collected all their urine for the next four hours.

The result is a “beverage hydration index” that compares how much of the drink was retained after two hours compared to a liter of water. (They used two hours because most of the urine had been passed by then, and it represents a more realistic time interval between drinks than four hours.)

So, without further ado, here’s the data:

A higher bar indicates more fluid retained. The dashed line represents twice the coefficient of variation away from water, meaning you can be relatively confident it’s a real effect above that line.

So milk stays in the body, presumably because of its calorie or potassium content. The same is true (barely) for orange juice. Oral rehydration solution stays in, thanks to its calories and sodium.

The biggest surprise? Neither beer nor coffee nor tea seem to produce significantly more urine, though coffee is marginally the lowest value on the index. One possibility is that the diuretic effects of alcohol in beer are counterbalanced by its retention-promoting calories. That’s supported by a previous study that compared regular and alcohol-free beer and found that regular beer triggered 12 percent more urine. Larger doses of caffeine or alcohol might get things flowing more noticeably, the researchers point out.
