Why rapid electrolyte spray vs. an electrolyte drink? Scenario: you’re headed out for an 8 miler on a hot sunny day (85 degrees F at 8 am). You know you’ve got to manage a slower pace to manage the heat, so it’s gonna take longer than usual (in this heat you should run at least a minute and a half off your normal pace). And you know that in this heat you should switch to an electrolyte based drink after an hour into your run. But here’s the ugly catch: You know that by the time you go to consume the electrolyte drink, it’s gonna be HOT (lukewarm at best if frozen prior), and worse still, if you’ve made the “smart choice” and are using a sugar free source, there’s no way it’s not going to taste like complete ARSE. SO…you find yourself reaching for more water, consequently, not getting the electrolyte replenishment you need. Now, you’ve run out of water and your left with a hot salty nasty tasting liquid that actually makes you feel more thirsty with every sip. Do you a) chug it down, hoping you don’t vomit, praying all the while that the sugar alternative contained in the drink, sorbitol, doesn’t leave you with a case of the trots, b) Look for a garden hose and hope you don’t experience muscle fatigue and cramping, or c) Just call it quits…maybe tomorrow will be better. Really there’s no good option. So if you’re like me, you need another option. And months ago, I discovered a solution: sportsfoodinc rapid electrolyte spray. With rapid electrolyte absorption, there’s no gastric distress, no sloshing hot liquid to carry or choke away, and best of all, it also has B12 and B6 that, like the electrolytes, are rapidly absorbed by way of liposomes, for an almost instant boost of energy. So, now you can drink water, which is what you really crave in high temps anyway, and you have peace of mind knowing that you are giving your body electrolytes, which it needs.
