SUPPORTS THE PREVENTION OF CRAMP
If you read the ingredients of most "sports" drinks you'll notice that they're full of refined sugars, and if you're lucky you get some sodium. You need the sodium, because it helps your body actually absorb the water, and you sweat it out during exercise. That said, Hammer Endurolytes Fizz is so much more than just a sodium re-supply. First, it's not sugary, which is important because simple sugars will catapult you into the boom/bust energy cycle that leads to irregular performance. Rather, it's sweetened with natural stevia.
Second, Endurolytes Fizz contains two key ingredients athletes need when they work out for two hours or more -- or whenever they work out and sweat even moderately. Those two ingredients are Potassium and Calcium. Potassium you likely know because most cyclists will carry a banana for a longer ride. While a banana is a great source of carbs, the thing that likely makes you feel re-energized is the potassium, since it helps regulate your heart, so that beats are both consistent and smooth. Remember that the heart is a muscle too. As an athlete you need potassium to keep your heart, and other muscles, working efficiently. For potassium to do its job it has to work with a regular supply of sodium, which is in Endurolytes Fizz.
As for calcium, if you've ever been on a ride and experienced urgency, or muscle spasms (and heaven forbid, both!) it's possibly due to low calcium levels. It's easy to sweat out a great deal of calcium on hot days, which in the long term can lead to bone density loss, but in the short term will sometimes lead to a nervous bowel or muscle spasms, and you don't want either. By the way, Endurolytes Fizz also contains magnesium, which also supports the prevention of muscle spasms (a.k.a., the dreaded cramp).
Hammer Endurolytes Fizz is a critical ride supplement to support the prevention of cramping, inefficient muscle contraction, and lower GI issues. It comes in tubes of 13 tablets and is available in three flavors -- Grapefruit, Lemon-lime and Mango. Dissolve a tab in each water bottle for a 2-3 hour ride. Double that if you sweat more or if it's hot out. Bring an extra tab along in a plastic envelope in your jersey, just in case.
Endurolytes DOES NOT prevent heat stroke, hyponatremia, or any other dangerous physical condition resulting from overexertion in the heat.
Body weight, level of fitness, weather conditions, acclimatization level, and biological predisposition all greatly affect electrolyte depletion so you must do your own trials with Endurolytes dosing, under a variety of conditions, to determine individual requirements.
At 10 calories per tablet, Endurolytes Fizz is not a significant source of calories.
Special Note: The amount of salt (sodium chloride) you habitually consume in your daily diet largely determines the amount of salt, and therefore Endurolytes, you will need to consume during exercise and races. The higher your dietary sodium intake, the more Endurolytes you will need to take. In extreme cases, this may be far more than the dosages indicated above.
