We are proud to announce the release of our brand new product, SaltStick FASTCHEWS. If you followed our #30SaltyDays campaign this summer, you’ll remember we told you these chewable electrolyte replacement tablets would become available soon. We are happy to announce they have arrived.
We figured you would have some questions, so we’ve provided an overview of the FASTCHEWS product below.
What are SaltStick FASTCHEWS?
FASTCHEWS feature a scientifically-derived, proprietary high-performance formulation that provides a balanced supply of bioavailable sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium. 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 colours.
Cool. So how can FASTCHEWS benefit me?
FASTCHEWS help reduce muscle cramping, reduce heat stress, boost stamina, and maintain electrolyte levels. It is the ONLY chewable tablet that is formulated to closely resemble the electrolyte profile lost in sweat. FASTCHEWS are also great for youth sports, travel rehydration, tennis and other sports, camping and hiking. FASTCHEWS can also be beneficial for patients suffering from POTS and cystic fibrosis, and for mitigating the effects of alcohol.
Sounds super helpful! … What’s in them?
Choose from Tart Orange and Zesty Lemon-Lime (pictured above) natural flavours, which encourage consumption. Each FASTCHEW contains 10 calories per two-tablet serving, and is made from ingredients that are non-GMO, gluten-free, vegetarian, fat-free. We use natural stevia as a sweetener, and we do not add artificial colours.
How do I incorporate FASTCHEWS into my training?
We suggest a use of 2 tablets per 15-30 min. during activity. For further details, please view our Usage Guide.
I’ve never used SaltStick before. What is unique about them?
We believe SaltStick FASTCHEWS have the best profile simply because they have everything you need for electrolyte replacement, and nothing extra†. What is lost in sweat should be replaced by your electrolyte supplement in a manner in which your body can absorb. Only SaltStick Caps and FASTCHEWS do this in a single product.
Curious about how we stack up against our competitors? See our comparison chart below:

- Numbers represent milligrams per capsule or tablet. Drink mix is per 8oz/230mL
- Sweat loss is average salt loss per 11oz/315mL of sweat for an average athlete
- Suggested serving size is 1-4 capsules or tablets, depending on the product.
I’m interested … but I’m not a triathlete.
Not to worry! FASTCHEWS can be used for all sports and activities that may cause a loss of electrolytes or where fluid is consumed. This can include tennis, football, water sports, rock climbing, hiking, gardening, and walking.
They also can be used to mitigate the effects of too much alcohol. In our experience, proper hydration (with water) and electrolyte intake are key to avoid the dehydrating effects of alcohol that contribute to hangover symptoms. SaltStick FASTCHEWS and SaltStick Caps can be used to help replace the electrolytes lost. We can’t claim that FASTCHEWS will cure hangovers, but you won’t be disappointed!
