ZERO is the UK’s leading electrolyte sports drink tab. It produces a clean-tasting and highly refreshing drink with zero calories. The tabs contain light natural flavours with no artificial colours or preservatives. ZERO contains Vitamin C and 5 electrolytes, including sodium, magnesium and potassium.
Vitamin C in ZERO supports a healthy immune system, protects the cells from oxidative stress and contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. Magnesium* in ZERO contributes to electrolyte balance, reduces tiredness and fatigue, whilst supporting muscle protein synthesis.
Simply drop a tab into your re-usable sports bottle and watch it rapidly dissolve. The 20 tab tube makes up to 15 litres of drink, so it’s great value for money. With minimal packaging, ZERO is environmentally friendly and easy to keep with you. The easy-break tabs mean that you can choose your ideal drink strength.
ZERO is suitable for a wide range of sporting activities such as: football, rugby, biking, martial arts, motor racing, running, triathlon, swimming, hiking, aerobics and racquet sports. With a light non-sweet taste, ZERO can be consumed when working in hot environments such the mining and oil industry, fire fighting and the military.

During exercise, athletes can be at risk from Hyponatremia, also known as water intoxication, which is generally the result of drinking excessive amounts of plain water with no electrolytes during endurance events. This causes a low concentration of sodium in the blood. A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine (April, 2005) found that 13 percent of Boston Marathon runners developed Hyponatremia from drinking too much plain water.
The tabs are designed to break in half to give you control over your drink concentration. Zero can be mixed to your preferred strength, but High 5's recommendation is one tablet per 750ml of water. It can be used before, during and after exercise.
