We're not just talking about feeling like the walking dead but about the real risks involved with flying at altitude. Learn exactly what puts you at risk and how you can fight
the combined effects that cause JET LAG!
Discover a Better Way to Fly!
We Did! We Wanted to Protect Ourselves!
That's why we set out to change the lives of all who enjoy travelling as much as we do!
After 2 Years of Research in conjunction with a leading New Zealand University and a leading NZ Nutritionist, we created a solution which will do just that. Safeguard you from the effects of flying at altitude, by providing a scientifically created flight drink to allow you travel better, travel safer and have you hit the ground running long after you land!
We are PROUD TO GIVE YOU ...
Who can use FLYHIDRATE?
Simply Anyone! Whether you're a High Performance Athlete, a Business Traveller, a Frequent Flyer, On Holiday or Airline Crew, then FLYHIDRATE is for you.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND IT
Due to the collaboration with The University of Otago, not only did we have the science behind the development, but also the means to test & study the results as we developed FLYHIDRATE.
First up, a laboratory-based, double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover study was conducted using volunteer participants, to examine hydration and related factors during partially-simulated 7 hour flights. Measurements were taken before, during, and at the conclusion of the simulated flight session. Trials were undertaken in the School of Physical Education climatically- controlled laboratory, but without the radiation or mildly-hypoxic exposure that would accompany air travel.
Timeline of the study performed by University of Otago, NZ.
FEWER TOILET STOPS
So it stands to reason that, not only does FLYHIDRATE help the body maintain a favourable water balance to stay hydrated, it then has the added benefit of less trips to the toilet due to reduced urine output. A real positive for anyone on a long haul flight.
Study shows a reduced urine output was evident by an average of 35% after taking the first drink - Boarding Pass. This also proved similar after the full 7 hours simulated flight.
PROUD KIWI INNOVATION
RESEARCHED, DEVELOPED, FORMULATED AND MANUFACTURED IN NEW ZEALAND.
As stated previously we are very proud to be able to claim that this product has been designed in conjunction with an Internationally recognised leading NZ University, supported by NZ innovation, along with being developed & manufactured right here in New Zealand.
So although you may not of heard about FLYHIDRATE from a land down under, LET ME ASSURE YOU ... IT WORKS!
Why 3 Drinks?
Quite Simply, it just isn't possible for a true FLIGHT DRINK to accomplish everything it has to, when combating all the aspects related to JET LAG in just ONE simple formulation!
" To ensure I arrive in the best possible shape, when I travel from Sydney I always buy a long haul three-pack of Flyhidrate. These provide three different drinks for various stages of the flight "

FLY THROUGH AIRPORT SECURITY
We all know that Airport Security is tougher everywhere in the world today so we ensured that the new packs met aviation security standards. That's why we redesigned our winning product so you can buy it on-line and have it shipped to you BEFORE you pack your bags. This makes passing through Airport Security and Transit lounges simple as can be.
How Much Do I Need?
Simply match the length of your flight in hours, to the corresponding hours shown on the front of the packs. It's that simple!

Why has it changed from an RTD?
We previously had RTD (ready to drink) packs and although they were successful in providing an airside solution it wasn’t practical due to Airport Security regulations. Also carrying three bottles on the plane wasn’t always convenient. So our approach to ongoing product development lead to the concentrate being created to alleviate both these issues and make life easier for everyone. It is still the same great product, in fact it NOW TASTES EVEN BETTER. But now just in a more practical form and able to be purchased landside and airside.
What will happen if I don't use Flyhidrate?
What will happen? Simply nothing!Frequent travellers already know what will happen if they don’t use our product, so it’s just a choice of whether they feel that spending less than $2 per hour, is worth the investment in themselves and their wellbeing. Passengers need to consider not just the monetary cost, but the cost in time lost when they arrive at their destination feeling tired and rundown, knowing full well they’re under performing and NOT being at their best. What is the value of that? Priceless!
What About Getting Through Airport Security?
We’ve got you covered! ALL THE PACKS come with a clear zip-lock Security Bag for convenience. Passengers will breeze through Airport Security (including transit lounges), so long as they place all concentrate vials in the clear zip-lock bag provided, as they are all well below the 100ml per item security requirement.
Is FLYHIDRATE Safe to Use with Medication?
All Natural Ingredients have been used. We have had NO reports of any side effects from people using FLYHIDRATE with other medicines. Should passengers have any concerns using FLYHIDRATE with other medications we recommend they seek medical advice from a Doctor.
Why Not Just Drink Water Instead?
Whilst water is good for you, it is not the most effective means of hydration when flying at altitude. Water sits in the gut and isn’t readily absorbed, causing bloating and discomfort. Where as the studies have proven, FLYHIDRATE is designed to be absorbed into body more readily and therefore reduces the amount of trips to the in-flight toilet. A positive in anyone’s case!
Why Three Drinks not One?
As stated above, Quite Simply it just isn’t possible for a true FLIGHT DRINK to accomplish everything it has to, when combating all the aspects related to JET LAG in just ONE simple formulation!
Is it like a sports drink / energy drink?
No. Sports and ‘energy’ drinks contain high levels of added sugars / carbohydrates. FLYHIDRATE keeps these levels as low as possible, whilst focusing on hydration in-flight plus having functional ingredients specifically useful to combat the stresses of flying at altitude.
Does it taste differently to ‘vitamin’ waters and common sports drinks?
Yes! Because it contains real fruit concentrates, extracts as well as other natural ingredients that have naturally strong colour and taste. Some of nature’s most useful functional extracts are bitter and astringent. So much ‘balancing’ work went in to achieving attractive flavour profiles but still we cant please everyone. But if at first you don’t like the flavours, be rest assured we will always be endeavouring to improve the flavour profiles and then don’t forget what your mother always said… “if it tastes bad, it must be good for you!” and in this case it’s exactly right!
Why can FLYHIDRATE provide better hydration possibilities than plain water?
Electrolytes are essential to good hydration as they enable the body to more effectively absorb and retain fluids. Moreover when we sweat, we lose valuable electrolytes and salts that need replacing causing dehydration and due to extremely dry cabin air experienced while flying, the body loses an additional 1L of fluid every 5 hours. FLYHIDRATE is specifically designed to enable your body to retain the fluid you consume, thus keeping you well hydrated throughout the flight.
Is increased radiation exposure at altitude dangerous?
Exposure to forms of either cosmic or solar radiation isn’t much of an issue on the surface of the earth because the atmosphere serves as a protective layer. But when you are traveling at altitude, you have less of that protective layer above you and so you are exposed to higher levels of this radiation. Exposure to these increased levels of radiation cause free radical damage in our bodies, a term which we are all now familiar with. Flyhidrate has a blend of super Anti-oxidants to help protect you from and mop up those free radicals.
