Osmo logo

What makes Osmo so great? Science.

The science is simple. Hydration, which refers to the maintenance of water in your blood, is critical to maximizing power, endurance and reducing fatigue. When you’re thirsty, you’ve already lost two percent of your body water—and 11 percent of your power.

There are no artificial ingredients or added fillers in Osmo’s products. Just like the science of hydration, we’ve kept it simple, using only what the body needs.
