You train like mad, you race with loads of tactical nous, then on a nasty climb with just a few miles left to go on race day you cramp up like crazy. Sound familiar? It's a story we hear all of the time. Hammer's Endurolytes capsules are the closest thing we've ever found for curing those dreaded cramps.
Electrolyte replacement requirements during exercise can vary as much as tenfold between two athletes. No other area of endurance nutrition or supplementation calls for such individualized dosing. And perhaps no other area of fueling can drop you out of the competition as quickly as electrolyte depletion or overdose. This is a critically important area where correct dosing is a must; you simply mustn't consider getting electrolytes out of a premixed drink. The risk of too much fluid/too few electrolytes is high, which means bad news for your stomach, your muscles, and your performance.
You want a product that allows effective electrolyte replenishment under any weather condition, any length of exercise, and any intensity of exercise. Endurolytes, unlike any other pill, tablet, or premixed drink, is that product. Also, don't make the mistake of thinking that electrolytes = sodium. Sodium alone cannot and will not effectively replenish electrolyte needs and may cause more problems than it resolves. With Endurolytes you're assured of getting all the right minerals in exactly the right balance. Endurolytes come in conveniently dosed capsules. You can swallow them, or open them and mix your own amount into your water bottle, whichever is most convenient for you.
One bottle contains 120 capsules. We've got to emphasize the importance of trial-and-error here. Many of our customers dose up on Endurolytes up to 48 hours ahead of an event -- taking 8-12 capsules per day in the couple of days prior to an event. Why? Because hyper-hydration can be counterproductive if you flush out all of your electrolytes.
I've tried quite a few electrolyte replacement tabs over the years. You can read all the literature and get totally confused (it's mostly sales hype IMO), so you just have to try them. Over about 15 years of trying things, I honestly think I have narrowed things down. I use both Hammer's Endurolyte Caps, and another brand (not sold my BC.com), Salt Stik. I think they both work great. The biggest problem I have on really hot days when I don't use these is a slight nausea. Never have that when using these items. Highly recommended for high exertion in hot weather.
