When you’re looking for a quick burst of energy and electrolyte replenishment, these tasty salt chews are one of our favorites. They actually taste a bit like sour sweethearts and are tasty enough to chew like candy… some athletes like to suck on them for a more slow release.
The formulation is unique in that it focuses on bioavailable sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium, which goes straight to working muscles and can help reduce cramping and heat stress while training. The sodium is derived from sodium citrate which has the proven benefit of soothing your stomach. The ratio of the formula is identical to what you lose when you sweat and it’s absorbed super quick through the mouth (buccal mucosa), which is another thing that makes them so unique.
Single packs come in little foil packs that keep them free from moisture and are pretty convenient to open during a run or ride. Chewing two tablets every 15-30 minutes gives you a nice electrolyte boost during summer training. Of course, every athlete is unique, and that’s another reason why we like these chews so much is that they are really easy to adjust and customize to your needs.
