The article presents analysis results of the actual consumption of drinking water and sport drinks by athletes before and after training and concerns the effectiveness study of the drink based on non-carbonated mineral drinking water “ARDVI” and dietary supplement “Eramin”. Analysis of liquid consumption by sportspeople before and after training shows that all athletes participating in the experiment (100,0 %) consume bottled drinking water for dehydration. The maximum consumption of bottled water is 1 500 ml, the minimum – 150 ml; the amount of tea drunk by judoists equal 500 ml with an average amount of 324 ml; carbonated drinks (“Coca-Cola”, “Sprite”, etc.) athletes do not use. The authors suggested judo athletes to replace 500 ml of bottled water with 500 ml of a drink based on the mineral water “ARDVI” and the biologically active supplement “Eramin”. According to the results of preclinical research conducted on rats, the introduction of this drink to animals through a probe contributes to the muscle and epithelial tissues regeneration. When studying the testosterone and cortisol amount in the blood of athletes, authors found that on the 90th day of taking a drink based on mineral water “ARDVI” these indicators were 84.2 ± 0.6 and 35.1 ± 0.8 nmol/l, respectively; and in the first group – 71.3± 0.5 and 26.4± 0.4 nmol/l, which is 18.1 and 33.0 % higher than in the control group. An increase in the number of studied hormones in the blood of athletes can indicate an increase in physical performance and a decrease in fatigue. Researchers noted a high value of the creatine phosphokinase enzyme (137 units/l) in the blood serum of athletes in the control group, which indicates training intensity and the possibility of muscle tissue injury. In the blood of athletes of the experimental group, the amount of this enzyme is 85 units/l, which is lower than the control by 62.0 %. There was a significant decrease in the activity of AST and ALT enzymes by 15.8 and 22.0 % while consuming studied drink by athletes. At the same time, the muscle injury index corresponded to the norm. Athletes who took the sports drink under study had the optimal value of the de Ritis coefficient (1.33). Authors concluded that the athletes use of drink based on mineral water “ARDVI” and dietary supplement “Eramin” allows sportsmen to maintain performance, reduce fatigue and prevent muscle tissue damage, including the myocardium.
