Why are electrolytes so important?
Electrolytes are lost through sweat during intense exercise and/or high temperatures. When electrolytes are depleted from your body, you become tired, cramp easily, and are at risk for dehydration. Replacing electrolytes is essential to keep your body hydrated, to enhance performance, and to help prevent muscle cramps. Electrolytes also help the brain and nervous system transmit and receive important signals and allow the muscles to contract and relax. Some studies show that electrolytes such as potassium and magnesium also support heart function.
What is elete add-in?
elete add-in formulas are pure, liquid electrolytes in concentrate form that can daily be added to water or any beverage. elete instantly delivers important electrolytes like potassium, magnesium, sodium, and chloride and to your body. elete CitriLyte Add-In contains sodium, potassium, magnesium, and chloride, plus zinc and citric acid, which participate in the Krebs energy cycle for energy conversion.
What does elete add-in taste like?
Original elete Electrolyte Add-In at full concentration tastes salty. When added to water, elete does not significantly alter the taste of water.
When should I take elete?
You can use elete anytime. Whether you're preparing for an event or a quick run or ride, you can add either elete add-in formulas to your water bottle or hydration system and drink it to stay hydrated, boost performance, enhance endurance, and prevent cramps. You can also mix elete with water or your favorite beverage and drink after activity to speed hydration to each cell of the body and support recovery.
Why is elete better than sports drinks?
Unlike most sports drinks, elete doesn't contain sugars, artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives. These extra ingredients can cause bloating, stomach cramps, and set off the gag reflex. elete delivers just pure electrolytes, so you're replacing only the things (i.e., fluid and electrolytes) you lose when you sweat. elete allows you the option of consuming carbohydrates in whatever way works best for you. elete is the only electrolyte-replacement formula compatible with hydration systems. Other products dye bladders, leave an unpleasant aftertaste, and are difficult to clean out of hydration systems. Cleaning elete from a hydration system is no different than cleaning after normal water use; elete leaves no residue behind. elete also provides electrolytes in significant quantities. Some sports drinks provide only minimal doses of electrolytes. elete contains an optimal balance of critical electrolytes.
Is elete safe to use in my hydration system?
Yes, it is. elete does not contribute to the growth of mold or bacteria so it is fantastic for hydration systems. To use elete in your hydration system, add three capfuls of the elete pocket bottle for a 70 oz. bladder or three capfuls for a 100 oz. bladder, shake, and enjoy. And when you're done, just clean your pack as you normally would.
Can I take elete even if I'm not active?
Certainly. elete is designed for anyone who wants an alternative to high-priced, high-sugar, high-calorie sodas, juices, and sports drinks. Everyone can benefit from the electrolytes in elete. Electrolytes support a number of vital functions in the body. They not only allow your body to stay hydrated, but electrolytes help the brain and nervous system transmit and receive important signals, help the body's cells generate energy, and allow the muscles to contract and relax. Magnesium, for instance, is an essential mineral that is involved in more than 300 enzyme reactions in the body.
What are the electrolytes in elete?
elete Electrolyte Add-In contains four key electrolytes: magnesium, chloride, sodium, and potassium. Further, elete provides optimal amounts of each electrolyte to power hydration and performance. elete also provides a wholesome balance of minerals and trace minerals that are also important to human health. For instance, elete contains small, or trace amounts, of other elements such as boron, which is necessary for optimal bone and joint health, and zinc, which functions as an antioxidant and promotes cell repair. elete CitriLyte contains sodium, potassium, magnesium, and chloride plus zinc and citric acid, which participate in the Krebs energy or the Citric Acid cycle.
elete, The Electrolyte Add-In
elete was launched in response to an unanswered need within the marketplace. Elete recognizes that no other electrolyte-replacement formula on the market offered a method to allow athletes to add a complete, customized balance of electrolytes to their water bottle or hydration system. In addition, Elete desired to create a product that would allow athletes to consume carbs in the manner that works best for them.
Many sports drinks and electrolyte-replacement formulas contain high amounts of sugar and low levels of electrolytes, which often lead to a host of unpleasant side effects such as bloating, stomach cramps, and nausea that interfere when performance truly counts. Further, most electrolyte-replacement products contain one or two electrolytes sodium and/or potassium. elete is the only electrolyte in its class athletes can add to their hydration system or water bottle that allows them to replace all of the electrolytes they lose during activity while maintaining complete control over the amount of carbs they consume.
elete is committed to providing the highest quality electrolyte product that provides optimal hydration. Whether the consumer is a hardcore endurance athlete or someone who just wants to ensure they are providing their body with the necessary elements for good health, elete is the superior choice for instant hydration, superior performance, and quick recovery.
Why elete is a Superior Electrolyte?
HYDRATION = WATER + ELECTROLYTES + DELIVERY SYSTEM
Electrolytes are essential to our health.
They help our body absorb water and control fluid balance. Although drinking water during exercise is critical to avoid dehydration, drinking plain water that is not fortified with electrolytes can lead to a serious condition called hyponatremia. Hyponatremia occurs when the concentration of sodium in the blood falls to extremely low levels, which can result in seizures, coma, and death. Electrolytes not only prevent dehydration, but they're critical to muscle function, nerve conduction, energy production and flow, and heart function. For the endurance athlete, a major benefit of electrolytes is that they help prevent muscle cramps, which can impede performance.
Athletes must be careful to avoid a shortage of electrolytes during training.
Loss of electrolytes through sweat must be replaced, but most sports drink and electrolyte replacement supplements, powders, and gels ignore the fact that the body also uses an additional balance of minerals beyond sodium. One essential electrolyte is magnesium, which is necessary for energy production, muscle contraction, and cardiovascular health. Another important reason athletes need to supplement with a balance of electrolytes is that if minerals (electrolytes) become depleted, negative effects like cramping occur. Magnesium–not sodium–supports optimal muscle function.
Sweat contains more than sodium and potassium
While sodium and potassium are two important elements in sweat, they are not the only ones. Sweat also contains magnesium, chloride, and other trace minerals.
It is better to replace electrolytes throughout activity
The best way to replace electrolytes is in moderate quantities every time you drink, not in short, concentrated bursts.
Sugar-laden sports drinks can be overwhelming
While carbohydrates are necessary for the body to manufacture energy, drinking sugar in every gulp fatigues the palate, causes nausea, and provides more calories than is necessary. Did you know that a serving of most sports drinks contains as much sugar as Kool-Aid?
