Electrolyte Stamina Review
What You Should Know
Electrolyte Stamina is a replenishment drink for extreme athletes, fitness professionals and people who need electrolyte support after working out for long period or in intense heat. The drink is not for the average person who walks a few miles or even runs a mile or two for exercise. You’ll notice multiple vitamins and minerals, including potassium and sodium – commonly lost in sweat. Just as electrolyte drinks can replenish these minerals they can add to much potassium and sodium to the body if the electrolytes were never depleted at all. The average dieter simply needs a bottle of fresh water during exercise.
List of Ingredients
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin B6
- Folic Acid
- Vitamin B12
- Pantothenic Acid
- Alpha Lipoic Acid
The body needs electrolytes to balance electrical impulses in the body. These electrolytes are passed out of the body in sweat. Name brand drinks like Gatorade and Powerade help support electrolyte balance by replacing the electrolytes athletes lose during exercise. Electrolyte Stamina offers the same support, but on a more advanced scale.
While most of the ingredients can be consumed without issue, we are slightly concerned with the 1,200 mg of vitamin C in each pack of Electrolyte Stamina. Taking that much vitamin C in one sitting can cause stomach cramping and diarrhea, not exactly the side effect most athletes want after exercise. It is best to start with one-half or one-quarter packet at first. You can work your way up to the full packet and full dose of 1,200 mg of vitamin C over time.
There are no ingredients in Electrolyte Stamina known to increase metabolism or decrease hunger, the two main characteristics most dieters are looking for in a weight loss supplement. This product is not for the average dieter as it supplies minerals and trace elements only beneficial to extreme athletes or dieters exercising in extreme conditions – like intense heat. Dieters who sweat very easily may benefit from an electrolyte replacement drink, but Electrolyte Stamina is too strong.
- All of the ingredients in Electrolyte Stamina are listed online.
- The formula supplies general electrolytes and an impressive list of trace minerals.
- The average dieter does not need a product of this magnitude.
- The amount of vitamin C per packet is too high to start with and may cause cramping and diarrhea.
Electrolyte Stamina is a specialty product for the extreme athlete or fitness professional. A dieter choosing to exercise every day can likely rely on water rather than an electrolyte replacement drink.
