Developed in 1995, SUCCEED! Electrolyte Caps have become The Gold Standard for Electrolyte Replacement. Of course, others have tried to imitate this formulation, but have failed to deliver a product as good as S! Caps. S! Caps are 100% electrolytes. Beware of imitations that use ineffective, non-electrolyte fillers such as the carbohydrate maltodextrin. Electrolyte supplementation is primarily about sodium replacement, and S! Caps deliver more for your money than any other supplement. Don't waste your money on imitations that supply less than half the sodium of S! Caps and will let you down when the heat is on.Nutrition Facts labels normally list sodium content as the element, but some products have misleading labels that express the sodium content as sodium chloride ( table salt ). This leads the unexpected reader to think that they are getting more sodium because the numbers are large.The S! Caps label lists sodium as the element, 341 mg per capsule. If you want to compare to other products that list the sodium as sodium chloride, S! Caps supply 867 mg of sodium as sodium chloride. We encourage you to read labels so that you understand why S! Caps are the superior electrolyte supplement. See our Integrated Solution page to see why we don't load up our formulations with the "kitchen sink" list of ingredients that are present in quantities too small to have any real effect.
I set my alarm for every hour at Barkley and took one capsule for 58 straight hours." Dr. David Horton Heavy sweating during athletic performance lasting for many hours can cause loss of critical electrolytes from blood plasma. Moderate loss of electrolytes can degrade performance, while heavy losses can lead to hyponatremia ( low blood sodium ) that can cause collapse and death in extreme cases. Sports drinks can provide adequate sodium input for a few hours of exercise, but are insufficient over longer periods. Energy bars and gels are low in sodium and should be supplemented with electrolytes. SUCCEED! BUFFER/ELECTROLYTE CAPS provide electrolytes that are commonly found in blood plasma, in the proper proportions for hours of exercise. When taken with sufficient water, they help the body maintain a good hydration status, which allows performance at a high level. As we claimed back in 1995 before others had even thought about electrolyte replacement in endurance events: they also contain a chemical buffering system that neutralizes the acids formed during heavy exercise. Neutralization of excess acid will help performance and reduce the nausea associated with exercise in the heat. Maintenance of proper electrolyte levels will reduce swelling of hands and feet after many hours of exercise, and that will reduce "hot spots" and blisters on the feet.
Directions for use Always take with water or sports drink. If taken with no fluid, the result can be temporary stomach queasiness. The electrolytes in SUCCEED! BUFFER/ELECTROLYTE CAPS will help water empty rapidly from the stomach, improving hydration status. They will dissolve in minutes after being swallowed. If sweating very heavily, use 2 caps per hour. For moderate sweating, use 1 cap per hour. In cool weather or with very light sweating, use 1 cap per 2 hours. If you expect to be sweating heavily, take one capsule with at least a cup of water before starting your run. More is not always better! There will not be significant benefit in exceeding these amounts. Store in a dry location.
