Electrolyte/Energy formula (stick packs) provides a balanced mix of electrolytes and carbohydrates combined with d-ribose and vitamin C to optimize physical and mental stamina. Electrolytes are vital cofactors for muscle energy metabolism and cell function. Suboptimal levels can compromise performance, while optimal levels promote endurance and may lessen the perception of exertion during exercise. This formula combines sodium, chloride, potassium, calcium and magnesium to replenish electrolytes lost during exercise and to help retain hydration, particularly for workouts lasting longer than 1-2 hours. Glucose and maltodextrin provide rapidly available energy, helping to preserve glycogen, enhance endurance, and delay fatigue during activity. Ribose is included to support peak ATP production for rapid energy repletion during intense exercise. Vitamin C is an important antioxidant and free radical scavenger. Exercise studies indicate that it protects proteins from oxidative stress and supports muscle function and comfort.*
• Combines sodium, chloride, potassium, calcium and magnesium to replenish electrolytes lost during exercise; supports muscle function, retains hydration and may lessen the perception of exertion*
• Provides the rapidly available energy sources glucose and maltodextrin to spare glycogen, enhance endurance, and delay fatigue*
• Supports peak ATP production with the precursor ribose to promote rapid energy repletion during intense exercise*
• Includes vitamin C to protect muscles from free radicals generated during exercise and to enhance tissue recovery*
• Great-tasting powder in convenient single-serving stick packs for easy dispensing
Recommendations: As a dietary supplement, take 1 serving mixed in 8-10 oz water, 20 minutes before intense exercise, or as directed by a health professional.
