Most people know that humans are made up of 25% solids and 75% water. But did you know that 85% of brain tissue is water, which means we need to remain hydrated to remain healthy. When we suffer from nasty tummy bugs, or are the victim of the South African lifestyle of outdoor fun, this very often leads to dehydration, where we lose not just water, but essential electrolytes and salts that keep our microbiome healthy.

Introducing our uniquely formulated ProHydrate+

The first sugar-free rehydration drink with added prebiotics and amino acids in South Africa. This naturally-flavoured rehydration drink is clinically formulated to deliver the optimal amount of electrolytes to your body, and is boosted with our 100% Pure Hydrolysed Collagen, L-glutamine, and prebiotics to aid absorption. All this at less than R15/serving!

Looking around, we found that most rehydration formulations rely on sugar and glucose to aid absorption. We’ve used L-Glutamine & 100% Pure Hydrolysed Collagen to heal your gut and aid absorption, as well as the naturally sweet prebiotic and natural flavouring for a delicious taste, making ProHydrate+ suitable for Banting, LCHF, and diabetic sufferers of dehydration.

This delicious formulation is not only effective, but because of its natural flavouring and our sugar-free Keto Sweet, it’s much easier to drink when you’re dehydrated or feeling under the weather. Thanks to the prebiotics, L-glutamine, and collagen, ProHydrate+ gets to work fast, healing your gut and reviving your body with three essential electrolytes, helping you recover from your ailments quickly.

Dehydration causes major damage to your gut, especially the villi in your colon, responsible for absorbing nutrients from your food. If these delicate villi become damaged as a result of dehydration or poor nutrition, they can atrophy (erode away) leaving a flat surface, leading to impaired digestion, and a leaky gut.

Fluid inside the gut assist with motility of the food and absorption of nutrients in the small intestine. The gut lining serves as a barrier, keeping harmful bacteria and substances out of the bloodstream. Proper hydration also provides an optimal environment for the proliferation of a healthy gut microbiome.

The gut-brain axis is an intricate communication network that plays a huge role in keeping us healthy and feeling great. A fascinating part of the gut-brain axis is its influence on our sleep – can you believe that? Our gut health can have a significant impact on our health.

Our gut contains trillions of tiny bacteria known as the gut microbiome. These have a very important job – they help regulate the gut-brain axis, including the way we sleep. But when our gut microbiome gets thrown off balance due to things like diarrhoea, dehydration, poor eating habits, stress, or antibiotics, it can mess with our immune system and surprisingly our mental health too. The best way to correct this imbalance is through ProHydrate+ by maintaining a healthy gut microbiome, which is essential – especially in cases of dehydration.

The gut microbiome also produces neurotransmitters like serotonin (aka the “happy hormone”) and melatonin (the “sleep hormone”). Serotonin helps us with sleep, mood, and managing anxiety, while melatonin keeps our sleep-wake cycle in check.

The prebiotics in our new Prohydrate+ are non-digestible soluble fibres that feed beneficial gut bacteria. They stimulate the growth and activity of probiotics. This enhances gut flora diversity and health. The added amino acids (collagen and l-glutamine) are the building blocks of proteins. They are essential for repairing, maintaining gut tissues, and can help heal the gut lining.

Combining oral hydration, amino acids, and prebiotics creates a powerful gut-health solution. Prohydrate+’s synergy of all these ingredients ensures hydration, tissue repair, and gut nourishment work harmoniously.

What are prebiotics?

Prebiotics are a source of fibre that feeds the good bacteria in your gut. When there are sufficient prebiotics in the gut, they allow the probiotics to multiply and maintain a good balance between the good and bad bacteria. The prebiotics in ProHydrate+ are designed to feed and rebuild your gut’s natural flora

Causes of dehydration


Vigorous exercise results in significant water and electrolyte loss through sweat as the body cools itself down. Did you know that drinking enough fluids will help to maintain your concentration and performance during exercise? This is why constant hydration and replenishment of electrolytes with ProHydrate+ is so critical.


Tummy bugs are the worst. They’re uncomfortable, debilitating, and confine us to bed for 24 hours. The damage they do to our gut is immense, and the best way to repair it is with our Prohydrate +. By doing this, you quickly restore normal gut function, and enable the absorption of vital electrolytes and nutrients lost during your illness.


Over-indulgence. We all know that the morning after a heavy night of celebrations often leaves us with a dry mouth, headache, and a general feeling of misery. ProHydrate+ helps your body recover, alleviating symptoms such as headache, and nausea.
