One of the biggest problems that endurance athletes face is maintaining the correct level of salts and electrolytes in their system to allow their bodies to perform at their optimum. This is where Saltstick UK can lend a helping hand.
Recognising the need for an easy to use dispenser which would withstand the rigours of triathlons and other events, athlete Jonathon Toker first started to formulate the Saltstick dispenser back in 2002. The idea was to safely protect the capsules that long distance athletes need to take in order to keep up the vital supplies of nutrients in their bodies. Prior to the creation of the Saltstick, capsules would simply turn to mush if they got wet while on a race. By creating a water tight dispenser that would fit to a running belt or clip simply onto handlebars, Toker created an essential gadget to ensure that athlete's nutritional needs were met during a long distance event.
The Saltstick capsules that fit the dispenser are specially formulated to deliver the exact amount of electrolytes that are necessary to maintain optimum muscle performance throughout a race. You only need to take one capsule for every 30 – 60 minutes of exercise. This will minimise the effects of the muscle cramping, fatigue and heat stress that can affect athletes during the course of an event. Saltstick Caps Plus feature all of the nutrients of a standard Saltstick capsule with the addition of caffeine to increase energy levels and sodium citrate to help soothe the stomach. All Saltstick products are free from WADA and IOC banned substances so you can take them with confidence.
