The Human Effect Matrix looks at human studies (excluding animal/petri-dish studies) to tell you what what supplements affect Hydration
|Grade||Level of Evidence|
|A||Robust research conducted with repeated double blind clinical trials|
|B||Multiple studies where at least two are double-blind and placebo controlled|
|C||Single double blind study or multiple cohort studies|
|D||Uncontrolled or observational studies only|
|Level of Evidence ||Supplement||Change||Magnitude of Effect Size ||Scientific Consensus||Comments|
Appears to be quite notable due to the increase in water weight in skeletal muscle tissue following creatine supplementation.
The addition of sodium bicarbonate to a pre-testing rehydration protocol does not enhance hydration more than the protocol itself (mostly water and carbohydrates)
