SaltStick Caps | 100 Count

Item #: SAL00501 Usually ships the next business day
Price: $21.95
product description
SaltStick Caps are crucial to prevent muscle cramping, heat stress and fatigue due to unbalanced electrolyte blood levels. Some of the many features include:

  • SaltStick Caps is the ONLY electrolyte capsule that was formulated to closely resemble salt profile lost during activity.
  • Buffered salt composition that helps digestion and absorption.
  • Vegetable-based capsule composition; Bio-available active ingredients.
  • Contains only WHAT YOU NEED. No: herbal, trace, questionable components added.
  • Does not contain any banned substances.
  • Unique formulation is patent pending; engineered by a Ph.D. chemist who is also a pro triathlete.
  • SaltStickô Caps uniquely includes vitamin D that helps the body absorb and utilize calcium.

    Recommended Use:

    Athletes should consume 1-2 SaltStick Caps every hour (with water) for the duration of the activity. In hot conditions, extreme humidity, or for larger athletes, a greater number of capsules may be needed to maintain safe electrolyte levels. SaltStick Caps can also be consumed prior to an activity and to replenish electrolytes during recovery. The maximum number of capsules recommended per day is 10, although athletes in extreme conditions and longer events may find it necessary to exceed this number. It is strongly recommended to test your planned electrolyte protocol in training several times before race day. Many athletes find it convenient to open 1 or 2 capsules into a water bottle, shaking the liquid contents before each drink to ensure that the small amount of insoluble powder is distributed in the water. A small amount of flavoring (sports drink powder or sugarless drink mix) may be added to enhance the taste. Water bottles prepared in this manner should be consumed as prepared, with limited fresh water as additional fluid. A super-concentrate electrolyte solution can be prepared by adding several capsules to water. Usage of the super-concentrate would involve diluting down a small gulp of the concentrate with fresh water. It should be stressed that every athlete sweats differently, reacts to heat and humidity differently, and reacts to the stress of a race or training differently. What this means to the athlete in particular is the importance of testing one's electrolyte replacement strategy in training, prior to race day. Listening to your body prior to and during an event is also key, so you can adapt your electrolyte plan accordingly. Being flexible and keeping your plan simple will give you the best chance of success

    Great for most people
    February 15, 2016
    These work okay for me at shorter distances, but since they are Sodium Chloride instead of Sodium Citrate, they tend to upset my stomach after 3-4 hours of use. I have since switched to the Gu salt tablets.
    Easy to use
    Sodium Chloride instead of the easier to digest Sodium Citrate

    I have been purchasing Saltstick for several years after seeing good but not great results from other salt tablet products. I feel that taking doses of electrolytes in the race is essential to combatting and preventing cramping. The mixture is perfect and I was able to reduce the actual number of tablets I used compared to other products- thus having better bang for my dollar. I have not had any bad consequences from using it. I can feel cramping coming on, take a couple salt tabs with a little fluids and my body becomes more balanced- reduced cramping and better feelings in head. I am a professional triathlete who has been given this product by his peers, but still has to purchase it. I would buy this product before using any of the others for free.

    Most effective at stopping cramps
    September 7, 2011
    Out of all of the electrolyte pills we sell, I would say that I like these the best. They have a much higher concentration of electrolytes than most other brands. I take 2-4/hour depending on conditions.
    Best Uses:
    Running, During Workout, Triathlons, Cycling
