    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, magnesium, and one of the most important minerals for endurance performance – iron.

    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. Over half of runners are deficient in iron. Iron is critical for the formation of hemoglobin and endurance performance! Your electrolyte supplement should be helping on all fronts to support your best performance.

    Look no further than ElectroElite, the first electrolyte supplement of its kind, and the best electrolyte supplement for endurance athletes. ElectroElite is the first to use all-natural Himalayan pink salt as a source of sodium and chloride, and it is the first to include essential iron. Where other electrolyte supplements fall short, ElectroElite picks up the slack. Convenient dosing with 2 tablets per serving makes getting your sodium needs precise and easy. 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 ElectroElite!

    Sodium (480mg) – The most abundant electrolyte lost in sweat, sodium needs to be replaced during endurance exercise to prevent hyponatremia.

    Potassium (300mg) – Potassium is the primary electrolyte found inside cells. Working together with Sodium, the primary electrolyte found outside of cells, potassium speeds cellular rehydration during and after sweating.

    Chloride (150mg) - Hypochloremia (low blood chloride) has the same dangers as hyponatremia, and for every 10 sodium ions lost in sweat, 8 chloride ions go with it. Therefore, chloride is an electrolyte that must be considered during exercise.

    Calcium (40mg) – An essential mineral for bone formation also has a role in fat oxidation, endurance performance, and body composition.

    Magnesium (30mg) – Magnesium is used in over 300 bodily processes. Sodium gets all the press, but magnesium is the most likely mineral candidate for preventing muscle cramps. It has also been shown to aid exercise performance.

    Iron (2mg) – Iron is required to form hemoglobin on red blood cells, which carry oxygen from the lungs to the muscles. Over 50% of runners are deficient in iron, causing poor performance. Restoring iron improves performance.

    Why are ElectroElite Electrolyte Tabs Unique?

    ElectroElite is unique in several ways. It’s the first electrolyte supplement to include sodium from Himalayan Pink Salt, which also contains small amounts of many other minerals, such as zinc and selenium. ElectroElite is also unique because it’s the first electrolyte supplement to contain the mineral, Iron. Iron is an essential mineral needed for oxygen transport, and when body iron status is low, endurance performance suffers. Including iron in your electrolyte supplement is an easy and logical way to ensure your iron status supports your endurance performance.

    What is the Best Way to Take ElectroElite?

    The best way to use ElectroElite is to first determine your sweat rate and sodium loss rate. As an estimate of your individual needs, one serving of ElectroElite is sufficient to replace the sodium lost in sweat for an average athlete. However, many individual variations exist and the environment can augment these factors as well, so you may need to adjust accordingly.

    Can I Use ElectroElite as My Only Race Fuel?

    You can use ElectroElite as your only source of sodium and other electrolytes. However, ElectroElite contains no calories, so it is not suitable for replacing carbohydrates needed to fuel exercise. If you are a salty sweater, ElectroElite has been designed to pair seamlessly with SustainElite, the best sports drink for endurance athletes.

    My ElectroElites Don't Dissolve Completely. Is this normal?

    Yes, this is perfectly normal but if you want them to dissolve 100% follow these steps:

    1. Add 1-2 ElectroElite tabs to your bottle.
    2. Add 4-6 ounces of hot water and swirl gently.
    3. Add 8-10 ounces of cold water and/or ice.

    A simple little kick!

    A simple little cake that I’ve added multiple times a week to my water intake! Always have them on hand no matter what I’m doing! I feel they work wonders!

    Good tasting energy in a small tablet

    Use these tablets during my bike rides. Not too sweet, and gives me energy to go the distance. At age 57, I'm not out to break any records, but drinking water with ElectoElites makes me feel young again!

    Yes, really 5 stars!

    These little tablets pack a powerful combo to keep you hydrated and make you feel great. I use these in the week leading up to a race to ensure I have all I need while super hydrating. I'll also mix these in with my SustainElite while fueling for long runs or races. The flavor is light and easily mixed with plain water or other products. Hell, they even make you feel better if you've had a little to many drinks the night before. Works for me!

    Staying Strong!

    I use these when I am running for more than 4 miles. They keep my energy stores going while I am out there. And they dissolve quickly in water (mixed with some SustainElite :) ) when you are out there in warm weather sooooooo these are perfect. And they are relatively cheaper than the other products I use (proportionately speaking).
