Are stronger electrolyte drinks safe? Drinking a strong sports drink before exercise is a proven way to improve performance and it can also help avoid/reduce instances of cramp.
The extra sodium boosts your blood plasma volume, reducing cardiovascular strain during exercise and giving you a reservoir of sodium/fluids to draw upon as you start sweating.
The average athlete loses ~950mg of sodium per litre of sweat, but most sports drinks only contain ~200-550mg/l. Stronger drinks contains >1000mg/l and our strongest drink contains 1,500mg/l - 3x more sodium than typical electrolyte supplements.
Our bodies are very good at maintaining a homeostasis (a balance) and if you take in more sodium than you need around periods of sweating, you'll simply pee any excess out over time.
Can salt tablets help with cramp? Sodium depletion is a common cause of cramp, especially those occuring after long period of sweating. 89% of athletes with cramp who drink our 1,500mg/l electrolyte drinks before events say this has helped them reduce or solve their cramping problems.
How can I rehydrate faster? Rehydrating is a crucial part of the recovery process. Drinks containing lots of sodium help you rehydrate faster as they help you absorb and retain more fluid. Drinking 1-2 bottles of a 1,500mg/l electrolyte drink after periods of heavy sweating could help you optimise your recovery and avoid night-cramps. This is especially useful if you're planning on exercising again later in the day.
What are hypotonic electrolyte drinks? Hypotonic sports drinks have a lower concentration - or thickness - than your blood. This makes them absorb faster than isotonic (similar concentration) and hypertonic (higher concentration) sports drinks, making them more effective if hydration is your main aim. Our electrolyte supplements are all hypotonic.
Hyponatremia is a condition caused by a dilution of your blood sodium levels. It's fairly common in endurance athletes because when we sweat we lose sodium and - over prolonged periods of exercise - replacing enough of what we're losing can be hard. Just drinking plain water or weak sports drinks can further dilute blood sodium levels, so adequate sodium supplmentation is important during longer events like Ironman triathlons or ultramarathons. Symptoms of hyponatremia include nausea, headaches and fatigue.
