Endurance athletes are always looking for portable products to carry with them on long rides, runs and during events. It is vital to keep our body in balance and replace any electrolytes lost during exercise.
I have found this awesome, portable product by Alacer Corp. called Electro Mix. It comes in individual packets for easy carrying and one packet in 20 ounces of water is a great, inexpensive method of staying balanced!
I carry a packet with me on runs in case I bonk and I also put one in my water while running. I have found a big difference in using them. You can buy an individual packet at Whole Foods if you want to try it. At $1.59 per packet and under $12.00 for a case of 30, it is a great value.
I use GU for carbohydrate replacement during a long run and in marathons. I find they keep me in check and give me a boost of energy. Still, there are times I don’t need carbs, but my electrolytes are off especially on warm days. When I start to feel, light-headed or dizzy, I am beyond the point of depletion, but I have found that even then, if I replenish with Alacer’s ElectroMix, I can continue on feeling good.
