Just finished the St. Jude Marathon in great shape thanks to Saltstick Caps. Previous 3 marathons resulted in severe cramps in my calves, including one in which I required IV fluids. Without the probblem of cramping, I knocked over 30 minutes over previous 3 marathons.

      Comments about SaltStick Caps 100 count Nutrition:

      I suffer a lot in the summer with cramps in my calves, lower back, arms, fingers, toes, neck...well you get the idea. Anytime the heat and humidity is rising and I'm outdoors for longer than 2 hours I take SaltStick tablets with me and generally take one every 45 minutes of activity. I love them. They don't irritate my stomach and it keeps the cramping away. Also, I have found that I no longer wake up with calf cramps in the middle of the night. I plan on continuing my marathon training during the summer using SaltStick.

        Comments about SaltStick Caps 100 count Nutrition:

        I just got back from a multi-day trek in the Andes where I was hiking up to nearly 5000 meters for over 9 hours a day with a limited diet. Well, SaltStick Caps helped me keep my electrolytes balanced in spite of the difficulties and are a weight-and-space-efficient alternative to drink mixes for long backpacking trips. They also make a great addition to my first aid kit to help replenish salts after digestive issues. I now use SaltStick Caps on all my long runs and no longer have any cramping issues as I did previously.

                        I used to have terrible GI cramping after runs over 4 miles. I did some reading and realized I was getting low on salt/electrolytes during my runs. My personal trainer recommended SaltStick, and I've used them ever since. They are incredibly convenient--no premixing or differentiating between water vs. electrolyte bottles on my belt. They take up very little space in my belt or pocket. Lastly, no more cramping after runs!

                            I have found proper hydration and electrolyte balance more of a challenge as I have gotten older. SaltStick Caps fill the bill. Very easy to carry on runs and have a marked effect keeping dehydration at bay. I take them all year long but especially during the warmer months. Only caution is since they contain magnesium you may have to gradually get used to taking them.

                                  Great supplement. Best Ive found yet to aid either working outdoors in extreme heat and humidity. I also use these when I run in the extreme heat and humidity. Wonderful aid when recovering from either activity. Much better in your stomach than a liquid sports drink sloshing around in the stomach. I will not train without these gems!

                                          I used to experience cramping during or after some of my longer runs; that problem is gone since I started taking this product. Just be sure to drink water with it, as I experienced an upset stomach when I didn't.

                                            I had big problems with hydration due to large amount of weight lost during long runs. I used the SaltStick caps today and I cannot describe how much better I felt, how much more hydrated I was, and how much my performance improved. I took one right before and one at the 1 hour mark. I didn't take another at 2 hours since I was almost finished.

                                              I bought these to combat muscle cramps in my legs in the last few miles of marathon training long runs. I take one every 45 minutes with water. They are easy to swallow, taste like nothing, do not upset my stomach and, best of all, they work!

                                              I have completed runs of 16, 17, 19 and 20 miles in hot summer weather since I started using them, and those muscle cramps are a thing of the past. I will definitely use them in my upcoming marathon and future distance runs.

                                              I also no longer need multiple expensive gels or chews on my long runs. Since I get so much from the salt caps, I usually just eat a pack of Sport Beans at some point, just for some calories.

                                              First I discovered the benefits of using an electrolyte drink instead of water to improving my running. Then I discovered the benefits of consuming energy gels every 45-60 minutes. Now my next big discovery is the use of salt capsules to help prevent the inevitable cramps that occure at about 12+ miles on warm days.

                                                  Used for the first time at the Calico Ultra 50K, I didn't experience any cramping and the pills didn't upset my stomach. With a 4K elevation change during the race the Saltstick caps probably saved me.

                                                    What a difference these make when you get to the last 1/2 of the run in an Ironman event.

                                                    My wife has hyponatremia and these have made a huge difference for her.

                                                      I sweat 2.5 lbs / hr and require electrolyte replacement because we don't eat much processed food in our home. I take 1 capsule every 30 to 40 minutes when working out and can maintain for 5+ hours at a time given enough water. I use these any time I work out more than an hour. Wouldn't be without them on long runs or rides.

                                                      Effective prevention of cramping during and after long endurance exercise (running). Take one tablet every 20 minutes of exercise, one to two tablets at completion. No more intrarace leg cramps; no more bed-time leg cramps.
                                                      I used Succeed salt tablets; switched to Salt Stick because it contains significantly more potassium as well as sodium (Succed is almost all sodium). Slight stomach discomfort without the added buffers, but I became acclimated to it after a few long runs.

                                                          Just finished the St. Jude Marathon in great shape thanks to Saltstick Caps. Previous 3 marathons resulted in severe cramps in my calves, including one in which I required IV fluids. Without the probblem of cramping, I knocked over 30 minutes over previous 3 marathons.

                                                          I just got back from a multi-day trek in the Andes where I was hiking up to nearly 5000 meters for over 9 hours a day with a limited diet. Well, SaltStick Caps helped me keep my electrolytes balanced in spite of the difficulties and are a weight-and-space-efficient alternative to drink mixes for long backpacking trips. They also make a great addition to my first aid kit to help replenish salts after digestive issues. I now use SaltStick Caps on all my long runs and no longer have any cramping issues as I did previously.
