Product Spotlight - Endurolytes Extreme
Steve Born - Hammer US
No matter how you define "extreme," there are times in your training and racing when you'll need greater amounts of specific electrolytic minerals. Instead of increasing your hourly dosage of original Endurolytes capsules, you now have a convenient, more effective solution: Endurolytes Extreme.
Bolstered with a hefty 300 mg of sodium chloride (salt) and 75 mg of potassium per capsule - three times more than the original Endurolytes formula, yet still in a balanced 4:1 ratio - Endurolytes Extreme is guaranteed to resolve even the toughest electrolyte replenishment challenges. In addition, each capsule of Endurolytes Extreme contains 10 mg of ginger root, well-known for its antiinflammatory benefits and its ability to ease digestive problems.
When to use Endurolytes Extreme
- If you're competing in an unusually hot-weather event - Some events - such as the Ironman Kona - are held in hotter and/or more humid conditions than anything most of us will ever experience. On these extraordinary occasions, "normal" electrolyte replenishment plans need to be altered drastically. That's where Endurolytes Extreme shines. You'll be able to fulfill your body's exceptionally high electrolytic mineral needs more completely with Endurolytes Extreme, while taking fewer capsules than you would with Endurolytes.
- If you're not acclimated to the weather conditions - When the weather is hotter than you're used to, you must alter a few things to succeed in your workout or race. First, you must slow down; you simply can't do "business as usual," pace-wise. Equally important, you must lower your caloric intake, while conscientiously increasing your fluid and electrolyte intake. Endurolytes Extreme takes care of the latter in ideal fashion.
- If you consume a high-sodium diet - We'll never stop advocating the health and performance-enhancing benefits of a low-sodium diet. We continue to urge you to limit your dietary sodium intake to 1,500-2,300 mg a day (that's 3,750-5,750 mg of salt). The less sodium (salt) you consume, the less sodium your body will lose during exercise.
As you transition to a lower-sodium diet, you will need to replenish with more sodium during exercise, using Endurolytes Extreme to fulfill your electrolyte requirements. Several weeks after you've faithfully adhered to a low-sodium diet, you can go back to using Endurolytes. Of course, if you continue to eat a high-sodium diet and/or if you "sodium load" in the days prior to an event (a practice we don't advocate), you'll want to stick with Endurolytes Extreme.
- If you are "physiologically predisposed" to cramping - Some athletes have cramping problems, even after following our fluid and electrolyte replenishment recommendations, which consistently work for the overwhelming majority of athletes. For example, we have a few clients who, due to their unique physiology, need to take 6 or more Endurolytes capsules hourly - even under mild weather conditions - or they experience cramping problems. Athletes who have unusually high sweat rates (which means higher-than-normal sodium losses as well) also fall into this category. If either or both describes you, Endurolytes Extreme is a must-use product.
- If you are just beginning early season training - The less fit you are, and especially if your early season training is intense and/or long in duration, the more sodium, chloride, and potassium you will lose. Until your fitness level increases and your body becomes more efficient, Endurolytes Extreme is your go-to electrolyte replenishment product.
With Endurolytes, and now Endurolytes Extreme, a tremendously wide range of superior, full-spectrum electrolyte replenishment support is now available.
