Why Choose Salt Sticks for Your Electrolyte Replacement

A true-at-heart athlete would tell you that as satisfying as sweat loss is during vigorous exercise, there’s a downside to losing each drop of sweat. From dizziness to fatigue and muscle cramps, such symptoms make an electrolyte replacement worthy of consideration.

Below are a few reasons why you should always carry salt sticks in your sports bag!

But first, what are electrolytes?

Electrolytes are chemicals that conduct electricity when mixed with water. They help regulate nerve and muscle function, hydrate the body, rebuild damaged tissue, and balance the acidity and pressure of blood.

Electrolytes include sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, bicarbonate, chloride, and phosphate.

How do salt sticks replace electrolytes?

The main four electrolytes (i.e., sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium) that your body loses through sweat make the main ingredients of salt sticks.

Developed by the world-class triathlete and Ph.D. expert in organic chemistry, Jonathan Toker, salt sticks undergo extensive testing to guarantee utmost efficiency for travelers and athletes of all sorts.

Why should you have salt sticks on you wherever you go?

Because besides providing all electrolytes at once, salt sticks are vegetarian and free from allergens such as gluten, soy, nuts, and GMO which means they’re very safe to consume. As your body loses electrolytes through sweat, salt sticks replenish what your body loses and are easy to pop.

What are salt stick caps?

Salt stick caps contain 215 mg sodium, 63 mg potassium, 22 mg calcium, 11 mg magnesium, and 100 IU vitamin D to help the body absorb and utilize calcium. The suggested use in only 1 capsule of salt stick caps per 30-60 minutes of activity.

Salt stick caps PLUS, on the other hand, contain 190 mg sodium, 53 mg potassium, 14 mg calcium, 7 mg magnesium, and 100 IU vitamin D as well. The main difference from the regular salt stick caps is that the PLUS contains 30 mg of caffeine and sodium citrate. Again, the suggested use is only 1 capsule per 30-60 minutes of activity.

How are salt stick fastchews different from salt stick caps?

Salt stick fastchews are the quickest way to absorb electrolytes. The tissue in the mouth and stomach absorbs the salt stick fastchews quicker than the salt stick caps making the first more reliable in emergencies.

Salt stick fastchews are consumed in two tablets per 15-30 minutes during activity. Each serving (2 tablets) contains 100 mg sodium, 30 mg potassium, 10 mg calcium, and 6 mg magnesium. With four natural flavors, salt stick fastchews appeal to all taste buds. You may choose from watermelon, peach, orange, and lemon-flavored ingredients. Only the orange flavor salt stick fastchews contains a trace of lactose.
