FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:July 25, 2016 (Thousand Oaks, CA) -- Toker Engineering, LLC, makers of SaltStick products, is announcing a new way for consumers to enjoy SaltStick Fastchews, the only chewable tablet that is formulated to closely resemble the electrolyte profile lost in sweat: sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium. Previously available in 10-count rolls, Fastchews can now be purchased in 60-count bottles from shopsaltstick.com and a variety of retailers in the bike, run, and outdoor spaces. Boxes of 10-count rolls will continue to be available. The new SaltStick Fastchews bottles have an easy-to-use flip cap and provide two delicious flavors: lemon-lime and tart orange. Fastchews have been formulated to provide electrolytes to help minimize heat stress and muscle cramping due to perspiration, in a quantity and form which the body can absorb. This product is ideal for athletes, outdoor workers or for use in hot conditions. Two SaltStick Fastchews in an hour equate to 100 mg sodium, 30 mg potassium, 10 mg magnesium, and 6 mg calcium per hour, which is the ideal ratio to keep an athlete moving. Jonathan Toker, Ph.D., CEO of Toker Engineering and creator of SaltStick products, has released the following statement, regarding the newly available bottles of SaltStick Fastchews: “As a company which recently celebrated our 10-year anniversary, we recognize success comes from continuing to improve SaltStick products for our customers. We released SaltStick Fastchews almost one year ago, and we have received great feedback since then from both professional and amateur athletes, who successfully use Fastchews to replace electrolytes lost through activity. “We have also heard from athletes requesting packaging similar to SaltStick Caps, which are available in 100-count and 30-count bottles. We are excited to offer this new format, and we are confident it will suit the diverse needs of our customers.” More information about SaltStick Fastchews, about SaltStick, and the benefits derived from our products can be found on the here.
