SaltStick Caps are the only electrolyte capsule formulated to closely resemble electrolytes lost during activity—including sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium—in a form which is easy for the body to absorb. The goal is to help minimize heat stress and muscle cramping due to perspiration, making them an ideal choice for endurance athletes, outdoor workers, or for use in hot conditions. Most users indicate symptoms like cramping can disappear within just 5 minutes of taking the capsule! The SaltStick Caps PLUS have added caffeine (30 mg per capsule) and sodium citrate (810 mg per capsule) for an added boost.
As a general guideline, athletes should consume one SaltStick Caps Plus every 20-60 minutes during any land-based activity (bike/run) for the duration of the activity (or up to 10-15 capsules per day). The capsules can also be opened and contents fully dissolved in liquid to form a custom electrolyte drink!
Pre-loading with the product can be helpful as well, and including electrolytes in recovery nutrition can also be a great way to help with recovery.
