One capsule provides:
- High amount of sodium: 310 mg / capsule
- Extra contribution of Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium and Chlorine
- Optimizes hydration during sports practice
- In the form of highly assimilable organic salts (citrates and gluconate)
- Suitable for Vegans
- No allergens
Sodium is one of the most abundant minerals in the human body, representing 0.15% of body weight. It is the most important mineral during sports practice because it is what we lose the most with sweat. This amount varies greatly between what is known as “sweet sweat” and “salty sweat” which is based on the concentration of sodium lost with sweat, as it is difficult to individualize, we take as a reference the average, according to the latest research1, It is about 987 mg per liter sweat. So based on these values, for demanding and long-lasting training, it is not enough just with the intake of an isotonic drink to replace all the lost Sodium and we must introduce an extra of it, in this case, in the form of capsules.
With the recommended intakes of approx. 500 ml / hour of IsoDrink & Energy (295 mg) + 1 or 2 capsules of PRO Salt Caps (310 mg / cap.) The athlete is sure to meet the needs of Sodium lost in training and / or competition. In addition, the consumption of sodium is essential to avoid hyponatremia, which is the decrease in the concentration of this mineral in the blood plasma, which facilitates dehydration.
The average losses of Potassium1 (234 mg / liter sweat) are perfectly replenished with the same combined intake of IsoDrink & Energy (193 mg) and PRO Salt Caps (54 mg).
Highly assimilable organic sources: Potassium, Calcium and Magnesium are supplied in the form of organic salts (Citrates and Gluconate respectively) whose bioavailability is greater than using inorganic salts such as oxides, carbonates, etc. usually used for its, apparently, greater contribution of the mineral in question and its lower cost.
