Salivary osmolality as a function of body mass loss. Salivary osmolality (Sosm mmol/Kg) was plotted as a function of change in body mass percentage in each of the three groups: Deep (a), Sports (b) or Spring (c) groups. Individual measures of salivary osmolality were averaged from the three trials. Salivary osmolality (Sosm mmol/Kg) was significantly elevated (*p < 0.0001; Females and Males) at Peak compared to Baseline collected as either Stimulated (d) or Unstimulated (e). No differences between Females and Males were detected, nor was there an interaction between sex and time point of data collection. Two-way ANOVA with post-hoc Bonferroni analysis. Data presented as mean ± S.D
