Unlike our former understanding of hydration clothing as shirts with built-in water-filled pockets (think “camel pack”), the hydration shirt and shorts set recently launched by Qore Performance focuses on keeping you from dehydrating.
With pockets around the ulnar/radial and brachial arteries in the wrist and inner forearms, as well as over the femoral artery in the inner-upper thigh, these compression-style shirts and shorts actually hold heat-absorbing HydraQore inserts that have been placed over pulse points where blood runs closest to the surface of your skin.
These HydraQore inserts function similar to cold packs that one can charge by dropping in ice water or placing them in the fridge for 15 minutes. However, unlike actual cold packs, the inserts freeze at around 60 degrees Fahrenheit, making them ideal for maintaining the open blood vessels necessary for your body to dissipate heat efficiently while you exercise or engage in a sport.
In a recent clinical study on the effectiveness of Qore’s hydration clothing published by Qore Performance, it was reported that the shirts and shorts generated 40 percent more hydration on average, and revealed a 3 percent increase in endurance. The overall improvements in performance and health presented in this study are a result of HydraQore’s hydration capabilities. In fact, these inserts actually prevent wearers from sweating in the first place.
