Replacing the electrolytes lost during exercise is essential for long-distance athletes. Having adequate sodium intake prevents the dreaded hyponatremia, but performance isn’t optimized when athletes focus is only skin deep. You don’t just need to replace the sodium lost in sweat – you need to replace the minerals lost during exercise! Within the body, tough endurance exercise takes its toll, increasing systemic mineral loss. That includes sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium.
Plenty of electrolyte supplements have adequate sodium, and that’s not anything special – you can get sodium from common table salt! Did you know that your total potassium needs are almost double that of your sodium needs? Why don’t electrolyte supplements contain hardly any potassium? Potassium is the primary intracellular ion to complement sodium as the primary extracellular ion, and athletes need to maintain their cellular balance. Exercise is good for your bones, but not if there isn’t adequate calcium in the diet. Magnesium is a co-factor for hundreds of metabolic reactions in the body, and they can’t proceed without sufficient magnesium. Your electrolyte supplement should be helping on all fronts to support your best performance.
Look no further than Hydrate, the first electrolyte supplement of its kind, and the best electrolyte supplement for endurance athletes. Hydrate is the first to use all-natural Himalayan pink salt as a source of sodium and chloride, and other trace minerals. Where other electrolyte supplements fall short, Hydrate picks up the slack. Light flavoring makes it tasty on its own and able to be paired great with athletes’ favorite sports drink, SustainElite, when they need extra electrolytes! Re-hydrate like a pro with Hydrate!
