For the second year, BASE Performance is an Official Partner of the IRONMAN® U.S. Series Racing and will be providing BASE Salt on the run course of all IRONMAN® full distance races and select 70.3. There is a lot of discussion around the benefits of sodium in an endurance race. Above is a video with our very own Matt Miller explaining the How To's of BASE Salt, the benefits, and the reasons why it is necessary while training and racing in all sports to avoid the ill effects of Exercise Associated Hyponatremia. Start training on the salt that will be provided on the course. Order BASE Electrolyte Salt today.
WHY BASE SALT:
- Its crystallized form takes advantage of the body’s superb ability to absorb in the mouth. It starts absorbing as soon as it hits the tongue, enabling it to start working fast!
- It doesn't require digestion and has no artificial additives or casings, which avoids the gastrointestinal distress many other products cause.
- It contains all of the electrolytes as well as 84 trace elements your body needs to perform at its absolute best.
- Small amounts every 10 - 15 minutes allows your body stay to at an even level. If you have an IV drip, it is a slow process to allow your body to absorb it as needed. It is never just pumped straight through your system all at once. This allows you to avoid peaks and valleys.
- It WORKS! Go ahead. Ask someone who’s tried it–we dare you. Better yet? Try it yourself and see!
BASE ELECTROLYTE SALT:
BASE Electrolyte Salt provides athletes with superior electrolyte replenishment,enabling them to maximize performance, stay hydrated and fight fatigue. More than just sodium chloride, BASE Salt’s all natural formula contains 84 essential minerals needed to maintain proper energy and fluid balance and avoid muscle cramps. BASE Salt’s unique crystalline form is very easily digested, rapidly absorbed and available in the bloodstream to replenish the electrolytes lost in sweat. Not only does it work quickly, it also prevents the gastrointestinal distress caused by many other electrolyte products. Add BASE Salt to your nutrition regime to take your training and competition to the next level.
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.
