The SaltStick Dispenser is a water-resistant dispenser for capsules designed to fit inside triathlon, time-trial, mountain bike handlebars, and on running belts! The SaltStick dispenser is as simple as turning a knob and out pops a capsule!
*This is just the dispenser, there are no SaltStick Capsules included*
Recommended Use: Athletes should consume 1-2 SaltStick Caps every hour (with water) for the duration of the activity. In hot conditions, extreme humidity, or for larger athletes, a greater number of capsules may be needed to maintain safe electrolyte levels. SaltStick Caps can also be consumed prior to an activity and to replenish electrolytes during recovery. The maximum number of capsules recommended per day is 10, although athletes in extreme conditions and longer events may find it necessary to exceed this number. It is strongly recommended to test your planned electrolyte protocol in training several times before race day. Many athletes find it convenient to open 1 or 2 capsules into a water bottle, shaking the liquid contents before each drink to ensure that the small amount of insoluble powder is distributed in the water. A small amount of flavoring (sports drink powder or sugarless drink mix) may be added to enhance the taste. Water bottles prepared in this manner should be consumed as prepared, with limited fresh water as additional fluid. A super-concentrate electrolyte solution can be prepared by adding several capsules to water. Usage of the super-concentrate would involve diluting down a small gulp of the concentrate with fresh water. It should be stressed that every athlete sweats differently, reacts to heat and humidity differently, and reacts to the stress of a race or training differently. What this means to the athlete in particular is the importance of testing one's electrolyte replacement strategy in training, prior to race day. Listening to your body prior to and during an event is also key, so you can adapt your electrolyte plan accordingly. Being flexible and keeping your plan simple will give you the best chance of success
