Abstract

Introduction: Endurance is the ability to do something for long period of time without fatigue. Proper body electrolyte balance is most important during any endurance activities. Aim of the study: The purpose of this study was to analyze Oral Rehydration Salt Citrate (ORS) drink on physiological variables of endurance athlete. Methodology: Ten females aged between 18 and 25 years athletes from LNIPE, Gwalior were selected for this study. Physiological variables were body weight, total body water (TBW), total body potassium (TBK), plasma fluid, and mineral and performance was taken as another variable. Data Analysis: It was found that intake of ORS before and during the endurance activity was better than the plain water or nothing. Result: It also found that TBW, minerals, plasma fluid, and TBK reduction were less after intake of ORS and result of less electrolyte reduction leads to better performance.
