REPLACES ESSENTIAL SALTS NOT JUST MAGNESIUM
For a complete salt and magnesium supplement that is fast and effective get Saltabs. Studies have shown that athletes can lose 2 (or more) grams of salt per litre of sweat, and may lose about a litre (or more) of sweat each hour. Under these conditions, an athlete who only replaces the lost fluid with water will contribute to a decreased blood sodium concentration, which can result in a condition called hyponatremia, where the concentration of sodium in the blood is too low. Cramping is one of the early symptoms, but if the condition advances further, nerve impulses cannot be transmitted properly and the muscles cannot function. The symptoms look and feel much like dehydration, so there is some danger that even more water will then be consumed, and this can lead to more serious complications.
