PREPD is a new, sports hydration system based on over 20 years of collaborative medical research between Flinders and Yale Universities. The original clinical research aimed to create a better oral rehydration solution (ORS) to treat severe dehydration arising from diseases like cholera and rotavirus for people living in developing countries. Using a special resistant starch, our research team was able to deliver improved hydration measures of 39% compared with the World Health Organisations’ recommended ORS.
The PREPD sports hydration system has been adapted from this ground-breaking medical research to meet the hydration needs of athletes in a sports setting. While our founders still pursue the goal to reduce severe dehydration in developing countries, they also share our vision to pioneer a new frontier in sports hydration and performance.
