    Glycerine: rehydrating quickly after cutting

    So I bough a bottle of NOW vegetable glycerine. It's a sweet tasting fatty acid used as a skin lotion and for cooking ( as a no carb sweetener I think). However I bough it for weight lifting use as it also superhydrates if taken with sufficient water. The goal was to increase muscle pump during weights and also see if it helped with gaining muscle.

    When I take it it worked perfectly, I took 2 tablespoons w/gallon of water (it's easy as you will be thirsty) and gained a few lbs water weight, a temporary effect for already hydrated people, and you piss it all out 3 hours later.


    Maybe it cuold be used to quickly rehydrate after a weigh in? Regularly you take it ti superhydrate and then later go back to normal. But if you are dehydrated I would think it would help speed up the rate of re-hydration. Sound good?

    but do you tihnk it would be better than pedialyte, which, I've been taught anyway, is the best thing for a wrestler to use to rehydrate.

    and since wrestlers have to rehydrate all the time...

    Maybe, never used pedialyte. How long does it take? I assume it's like gatorade in that it is a flavored electrolyte blend?

    When I used glycerine I had drank about a half gallon water within 15 minutes. An hour later I was up to a gallon total and had no bloating (my stomach was not bursting). I had gained a few lbs, was not pissing at all, and felt very full in my muscles (weird feeling but good, kind of like a "pump").

    I think the glycerine either speeds up transport of watr into cells or tissue or maybe it only allows for the superhydration effect, if it is the latter then it wouldn't really do much for this purpose.


    Either way so far I like it for lifting once in a while.

    it's disgusting. i fucking hate the taste of pedialyte.

    but i've dehydrated completely, or almost, pedialyted up and felt fine to wrestle an hour or two later.

    that could be placebo from my trust in coach. or it could be the pedialyte. i'm willing to bet it's the pedialyte for the simple reason that i've heard it from alot of other wrestlers that pedialyte is the way to go.

    If you read the whole article, the author says he would not recommend taking glycerol. There are too many side affects from its use, according to the article.

    Glycerol has been around for almost a decade [damn I'm old] and has been used by bodybuilders and wrestlers to rehydrate after cutting water or carbs. I used it several times after carb depleting and I think it worked okay, but it is hard to tell since I was also doing / taking other supplements.


    I've never heard of anyone having any side-effects from it, but my sample size is small.

    I haven't seen any information on glycerols effects in re-hydration. Such as after self impossed dehydration befor weigh-ins. Glycerol helps the body retain water and to hyperhydrate. But I haven't seen anything that says it helps your body recover faster from a water defficit. I'd stick to pedialyte or better yet, good ol' water to rehydrate. Combat athletes aren't in a competative situation long enough to suffer from serious dehydration. So I wouldn't really see the need to hyperhydrate. Unless a couple extra pounds give you a advantage over a guy who bairly made the minimum weight for your class.

    One could always use glycerol + pedialyte to rehydrate...


    I might try it after St. Patty's day to see if it helps.

    tab... did you ever wrestle in highschool?

    if you drop hard you wanta rehydrate as quickly as possible because you straight up feel shitty. and you will /not/ perform as well unless you rehydrate as quickly and efficiently as possible.
