How we are unique: Jonathan Toker received his Ph.D. in organic chemistry from The Scripps Research Institute in 2001, worked in the biotech industry for five years, and raced in the professional ranks as a triathlete and runner for five years. Not only does he understand hydration and electrolytes from a biochemical standpoint, he recognizes the unique needs of athletes because he is one himself (and remains to this day a highly competitive one at that).Step 2: We use the best ingredients Once we develop a new product, we rely on only high-quality, expertly-sourced ingredients in their purest forms. Our in-house legal team has a vast knowledge of government regulations and the regulations of various sports associations, which helps ensure we remain compliant across the board.
SaltStick CEO and inventor Jonathan Toker, Ph.D., has both an extensive background in chemistry and lengthy experience as a professional athlete.Step 3: We manufacture our products at a pharmaceutical-grade facility SaltStick products are manufactured at a cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practices) facility to ensure product of the highest quality, and our products contain only the ingredients listed on the label. This pharmaceutical-grade facility is U.S.-based and visited and inspected regularly by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), NSF, State regulators, as well as members of the SaltStick team. We have a great relationship with our manufacturer, and we have been partnering with the same lab for more than 10 years. Moreover, the facility is certified to produce products for sporting use, meaning it is never used to process ANY banned substances, for any customer, at any time.
How we are unique: Even though we have a long-standing, trusted relationship with our manufacturer, we are committed to ensuring SaltStick products are clean and free of banned substances. To that end, we periodically send our products to a third-party testing facility, at our own expense, to provide an extra layer of security that nothing has contaminated our ingredients. At any time, anyone can view the results of these tests on our Manufacturing & Safety page here. This protocol exceeds the level of testing of any established supplement testing program.https://youtu.be/bFu6hW0zEiQ Step 4: We monitor our products closely until they are shipped to you Once SaltStick products are manufactured, we ship them to our warehouse, where they are guarded in a controlled-access, safe and secure location until they are ready to be shipped. We use our own contract trucking and shipping vehicles for transportation, and we maintain strict oversight of the entire process. Step 5: You train with one of the highest-quality electrolyte supplements available Whether you purchase SaltStick from our online store or at one of our retailers, you can train secure in the knowledge that we have done everything possible to provide you with the simplest, purest form of ingredients on the market. As a sponsor of many elite-level athletes around the globe, we take the safety of our products seriously. For more than a decade, we’ve worked hard to establish our legacy as a company committed to excellence, and we are not shy about how we work. That’s why SaltStick is the electrolyte supplement of choice.
