It is so important to maintain optimal hydration levels.
H2Prohydration tablets help you maintain these levels by replenishing key electrolytes you lose through sweat in day to day life, but especially during a workout.
Drinking water is great but if you take a lot of exercise or engage in manual labour and consequently perspire lot then water alone will not replace the electrolytes your body loses as a result. Therefore you need to replenish your magnesium, calcium, potassium and sodium levels.
All you have to do is add a tablet to your water to drink before, during and after training. There are different strengths depending on your needs.
Calculate your water needs using this handy hydration calculator.
H2pro is available in four strengths to suit all requirements. Although in every case you only need to use one tablet in every half a litre of water
Green cap tablets are 250mg strength – Entry Level - Very Low Sweat Level
Yellow cap tablets are 500mg strength - Low to just below Medium Sweat Level
Orange cap tablets are 1000mg strength – Above Medium Sweat Level
Purple cap tablets are 1500mg strength – High Sweat Level
Order now to take full advantage of our weekend only automatic 10% discount. Plus if you are really canny, you will enjoy the discount on our double and triple combo offers, saving both money as well as ensuring you remain healthy.

How James Haskell Became England’s Hardest Hitter
Our March Men’s Health cover man talks training, macros, dumper trucks and, obviously, a bit of banter
James Haskell, the elite rugby player, entrepreneur, author, presenter, DJ, barista, social media firebrand and, er, dumper truck enthusiast leads from the front, in the best shape of his life.
The March issue is packed with more hard-hitting talent — think muscle-building hacks, clean food for dirty appetites, kicking work stress into touch, tips to hotwire your metabolism and much more — than the entirety of the Six Nations.
To give you the first-touch of our meaty March issue, we assembled the best quotes from Haskell - one of rugby's hottest prospects.
Haskell on...meeting his fans "Not long ago, a guy walked up to me in the street. He goes: ‘You're James Haskell. I used to think you were a right dick. But you played really well on that Australia tour. So now I think you're alright!' I mean, what am I supposed to do with that?"
On...lifting for improvement "I hate not playing. When I wasn't selected for England U16s, I was gutted. My dad told me I could either give up, or come back stronger the following year. I asked a family friend for some advice on lifting weights and I haven't looked back."
On...matching his diet with his training "The amount of training I do each day, on top of all this running around, means I need to be taking in about four-and-a-half thousand calories a day, just to maintain my weight. So, yeah, I eat the right stuff. But sometimes, I just really need to eat."
On...his work ethic "If it can get me back to playing 2-3% better then I would be a fool to ignore [new training methods]. I've made it my business to cherry-pick valuable information from other sports and things like this. If you don't give them a try you don't know. The only people who know everything are in the graveyard."
On...staying grounded "It's like meditation...My days are so full-on that it's nice to just concentrate on a proper job for a bit – fill it up, drive it round, empty it. If nobody had told me to stop, I'd have been there all night."
James' Favourite (and least favourite) Foods
So what is James ideal afternoon tea? His favourite crisps? What would his last meal on this earth be? And his worst dish ever tasted?
So we have found out that James' dark secret is that he and Chloe are lovers of Mac and Cheese. If you missed that Click Here! Today we find out more of his loves and hates in the food world..
Ideal Afternoon Tea? Must have 'a substantial variety' of finger sandwiches. None of this cucumber 'nonsense. Smoked salmon, coronation chicken and a 'classic' ham and cheese. Warm scones with clotted cream and jam. Then a tower of assorted cakes of course!
Speaking of cake, James' favourite cake is another classic; Victoria sponge. When he was younger after a bad day at Wasps he would buy a whole cake and eat the entire thing to cheer himself up! Don't believe me? Check out the video Here to get it straight from the horses mouth.
Now for the worst dish, for most of us this would probably be beetroot, artichokes, sprouts or similar. James takes it to the next level. The worst dish he has ever had? Cod sperm. Yes 'actual fish sperm'. Looks and tastes much as you'd expect he says 'A bowl of semen, which may or may not have belonged to a fish'. This was while he was playing in Japan for the 2011-2012 season. Check out the Video Here.
There are more videos with James telling us his favourite crisps, what his last meal would be on death row, and what he would eat if stuck on a desert island. Check them all out Here!
Who the hell needs yet another brand of jeans???!!
I was of the exact same opinion till I got sent a pair of Olympvs jeans to try.
I have to say I think they are pretty amazing in terms of quality. Fit and the price. In truth, at just £85 a pair, they make a complete mockery of the £245 pair I bought just before Christmas
In terms of all the clothes we either produce ourselves at JHHF or third party endorse, we are always on a mission to make the ultimate, comfortable and stylish clothing for athletes. I believe we’ve achieved this with these jeans and matching T- shirt.
Fit for the fittest: They are made to fit the athlete’s shape, they are larger in the thigh and slimmer in the waist. No more ‘sizing up’ in the waist to fit big quads.
Stretch your limits: They are made from a cutting edge Hyper-stretch denim which has an insane amount of stretch, combined with the durability to keep their shape whatever is thrown at them.
Made in Italy: The jeans are individually appraised and hand finished in the pursuit of optimum performance. This extra care ensures there is rarely a wrong stitch or loose thread.
Clothes to be proud of: They are made with a fair wage and all our packaging is 100% recyclable.
Feedback on the product has been overwhelmingly positive, especially about the fabric which is ridiculously comfortable.
The proof however is always in the actual testing which is why we are offering a crazy 20% off discount to what is already a ludicrously low price.
Watch the video below and make your own mind up. You won’t regret switching to Olympvs.
James' Food Guilty Secrets..
Pork pies, pizza, mac and cheese, custard tarts, pancakes.. What else does James Haskell secretly love to eat?
James recently revealed what it is he really enjoys eating, pre-match, post-match match, and on 'car picnics'.
Now for the rest of us, a picnic probably consists of a sandwich, bag of crisps and a drink. Not for James! His typical 'car picnic' has to have; the crudités, hummus, cocktail sausages, pork pies, chicken, cold meats, custard tarts.. His latest picnic was a whopping 1800 calories! Want to know which item he blames for the excess calories? Check out the Video Here.
Pre match James has porridge and scrambled eggs for breakfast, then a few hours before the match his current favourite choice is salmon pancakes and broccoli. James needs to maintain a steady intake of 3,750 calories per day!! (Guess those large car picnics are making a bit more sense..) Watch the Video Here.
Post match he and Chloe like to treat themselves to a pizza and jalapeno poppers. Dominos used to be their place of choice, but on the recommendation of Alex Reid they now only use Papa John's.
James has also admitted that Mac and Cheese is his and Chloe's 'dark secret'. Most of the time he is obviously on a strict diet and has to watch exactly what he is eating, but every now and then they enjoy a guilty pleasure.
Check out This Video to see James and Chloe making Mac and Cheese with Devonshire Club's head chef William Best. You can also find the recipe here to enjoy a Mac and Cheese that is (in James' own words:) "so good I dribbled!"
