There is more to our Electrolyte profile than simply table salt ! Potassium, Calcium and magnesium ASWELL as sodium are needed just for a nerve to fire and for the muscle to contract !
At Fekd we include all of these and a plethora more; each with thought and function behind its inclusion in our unique product.
To get the most out of our product aim to consume every day as a dietary supplement not just during training and racing (approximately 1g twice a day is enough!)
For training and racing we recommend mixing with your regular carbohydrate based energy drink as the carbs will aid absorption and help the product be drawn into muscles not just sit in the gut.
You can also administer the product directly via the race vials either sublingually (side of the tongue) or orally (by simply swallowing it) The frequency of the dose should be dictated by how you best used it in training but a good starting place is 2-4 licks every 10-20 mins.
Bodyweight, fluid consumption and ambient temperature should be considered
Sodium regulates fluid balance, blood pressure and acid-base balance in the body. It also facilitates the transmission nerve impulses in skeletal muscle, brain and heart tissue. Since it is lost in sweat, it must be replenished during strenuous or prolonged exercise to prevent potentially life-threatening hyponatremia.
Potassium also plays an important role in fluid and acid-base balance, and it is particularly important for cardiac muscle contraction. It is also lost in sweat. Low potassium causes muscle weakness and severe depletion can induce heart arrhythmias.
Magnesium actives the enzymes required for energy production. It also plays a role in skeletal muscle contraction and bone structure. Even small deficits impair performance and increase damage from exercise. Magnesium facilitates potassium absorption from the gastrointestinal tract and helps balance electrolytes.
Chloride helps regulate fluid and acid-base balance in the body. Combined with hydrogen, it comprises the primary digestive acid in the stomach required to break down and absorb nutrients, and it may help the liver clear toxins. As the prominent negative ion in the body, it is commonly coupled with sodium and lost in sweat.
Calcium in addition to promoting bone structure and repair, calcium enables heart muscle contraction, nerve transmission and regulates certain hormones. When depleted, the body usurps calcium from the bone, so supplementing helps protect bone health and integrity.
Iron is needed for transporting oxygen and carbon dioxide. It also has other important roles in the body. Iron can be found in foods like meat, fish, tofu, beans, spinach, cereal and other foods. Iron is most commonly used for preventing and treating anemia caused by low iron levels.
Zinc is needed for DNA synthesis, immune function, metabolism and growth. It may reduce inflammation and your risk of some age-related diseases. Most people meet the RDI of 11 mg for men and 8 mg for women through diet, but older adults and people with diseases that inhibit zinc absorption may need to supplement.

You can replace your table salt with Fekd Electrolyte Salt. Use as you would your normal cooking or table salt.
Do not to exceed the stated dose.
Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied diet,
This product should be stored out of reach of young children.
*Over the time of the event or race or chosen activity you will need several servings of Fekd electrolytes. Choosing foods like Bananas, watermelon, sweet potato and butternut squash will have great advantages to replacing your electrolytes lost while sweating.
