SOS is developed with the best of both medical and sports science.
Engineered by collaboration between a leading doctor, two former elite athletes,
and a retired military officer
THIRD PARTY RESEARCH
SOS is based on, and falls within the ranges set out by the World Health Organization Oral Rehydration Solution Guidelines. These guidelines are supported by over 50 years research into dehydration. The following articles delve deeper into the effectiveness of these Oral Rehydration Solutions and our specific formula and support our claims through world class and independent research.

Not many companies have been willing to independently test their product for fear of failure. SOS has since day one, not only followed proven rehydration guidelines but has put their latest product up for independent research.
SOS Hydration Inc is a beverage company that relies on fact not marketing spin. Here are some of the studies into SOS so far.
Independent study into effectiveness of SOS in restoring hydration balance - Coventry University 2016
Independent study into the Effectiveness of excess sugar in sports drinks.
