It is strongly recommended to use Gorilla Hydration alongside Liquid Glycerol to avoid electrolyte dilution that can occur from high water intake for longer training sessions.
Glycerol significantly enhances pumps and performance by hyper-hydrating the muscle with water.
If you drink a lot of water with nothing else, the fall in osmolarity in your body stimulates the kidneys to remove most of the excess water within an hour.
If you add glycerol to the water, this prevents the drop in osmolarity and can extend the hyper-hydration effect in your muscles by up to four hours.
By adding Glycerol to your pre-workout, you can hold upwards of an extra liter of water via this hyper-hydrating effect.
In addition, Glycerol use has been shown to increase endurance by as much as 24%, as well as improve aerobic and anaerobic power and performance.
Why Liquid Glycerol?
Glycerol is a staple ingredient in pre-workouts for enhanced pumps and performance.
Creating a stable Glycerol powder is challenging and, at high dosages, can cause a gritty consistency.
This often prevents people from using a high dosage, as you can only mix so much Glycerol powder in a shaker cup, and an absurd amount of powder simply won’t sit well in the stomach.
This process has prevented us from adding the dosages we’d like in a pre-workout, so we doubled down and created a standalone Glycerol product for those of you who want an even bigger pump than what is already provided in our pre-workouts, or for those that can benefit from hyper-hydration in an endurance context (its primary use case).
We appreciate that you value performance over taste and consistency, but we want you to have both.
That’s why we’re introducing Liquid Glycerol to the Gorilla Mode lineup.
Liquid Glycerol mixes perfectly in your water or pre-workout, making for a smooth sip.
Our liquid version of Glycerol contains 25 grams of 100% active Glycerol and a small amount of sea salt, delivering maximum intracellular hydration and a nasty pump you can see and feel.
Gorilla Hydration is a comprehensive electrolyte drink mix formulated to support peak performance and hydration.
When we exercise, we sweat and release large amounts of electrolytes and trace elements that our bodies rely on.
Replenishing and maintaining an optimal ratio between them is essential for optimal performance and health.
Only a 2% loss in fluids can result in as much as a 20% decrease in exercise performance.
Many athletes do not optimize their hydration status, even when given unlimited access to fluid.
This formula was designed not only to support high level sports performance, but also for use in everyday life to top up common mineral deficiencies that are difficult to get through a regular diet.
It also tastes incredible, with no sugar or artificial sweeteners, and is as close to calorie-free as you will get in a stacked electrolyte formula (it is fasting friendly).
