SaltStick® FastChews® are delicious, chewable tablets that provide a similar ratio of electrolytes to what your body loses through sweat. Our scientific formula relies on cleanly sourced, buffered ingredients to help minimize heat stress and muscle cramping due to dehydration, without causing stomach discomfort.
FASTCHEWS feature a scientifically-derived, proprietary high-performance formulation that provides a balanced supply of bioavailable sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium. Sodium is derived from sodium citrate, a proven source that has the added benefit of soothing the stomach. The formulation mirrors the electrolyte profile lost in sweat, in a form and quantity the body can absorb. Its non-GMO ingredients are all natural, gluten-free, vegetarian, and without artificial sweeteners or colors. Rapid absorption takes place by mouth (buccal mucosa, and then the stomach). Ease of access is assured in a convenient moisture-resistant zip-lock packet format.
How do I use them? It's in the name! FastChews are FAST-absorbing electrolytes designed to be CHEWed, not mixed with water. The electrolytes in FastChews are absorbed through the lining of your mouth, which studies have shown to take in nutrients 2-4x faster than the intestines. Chew FastChews or let them dissolve in your mouth; then wait 2-3 minutes before eating or drinking so the electrolytes have time to be absorbed into your bloodstream.
How often do I use them? Everyone is different, and your exact electrolyte needs will be based on your bodyweight, genetics, level of fitness, and outdoor temperatures. But in general, we recommend taking 1 FastChew every 15 minutes during exercise if you're consuming a sports drink, or 2 FastChews every 15 minutes if you're consuming plain water.
