We’ve got a new look! Check out SaltStick’s updated packaging

Today, we’re excited to unveil new packaging designs at SaltStick! Featuring a bolder, more modern look, the updated bottles and packets will start appearing online and in U.S. stores this year, with non-U.S. versions launching in 2022. Here’s what’s new: Updated product descriptions: We got our start in the long-distance endurance world, but SaltStick is ideal for anyone who sweats, including athletes of all abilities, outdoor workers, and anyone who can benefit from increased electrolyte consumption. We changed our product descriptions to better reflect this growing community. Modernized color scheme, and updated logo: Let’s face it: Our previous labels looked a little dated. We’re excited to introduce bolder colors, modern fonts, larger text and an updated version of the SaltStick logo. We’ve also adopted a more prominent Vitassium logo to support Vitassium as its own brand. New product feature callouts: Today, transparency around manufacturing and quality of ingredients matters more...

Sweater Crew Spotlight: Earth Month

Sweater Crew Spotlight: Earth Month

Every day is Earth Day and “Run Streak Day” for Sweater Crew member Ashley Hughes @ashleyrunsdaily. Ashley has run at least one mile every day for the past 1386 days. (That’s 3 years, 9 months, and 21 days!) In addition to her impressive daily run streak, Ashley has picked up a “trash streak” for the past 244 days, picking up at least one pound of trash during each of her daily runs. What started out as a Forest Gump-esque “I-just-felt-like-running" moment has evolved into a full-blown micro-movement within her community. And it’s being noticed, too – fellow community members started to pick up trash, and she was recently awarded the “citizen of the year” plaque from her local community for her leadership!  For Earth Week, we caught up with Ashley to learn more about her streaks, inspiration, and cool finds. Every mile, piece of trash, and good deed adds up, and we’re inspired by people like Ashley! ...

Suffer from swollen hands? Here are the causes and solutions for athletes.

Suffer from swollen hands? Here are the causes and solutions for athletes.

A search through endurance-related forums will reveal hand-swelling is a common malady, with posts complaining that hands look like “a rubber glove that's been blown up” or fingers that “feel very tight and hard to bend.” Although the condition is most common to ultra runners, hand-swelling can affect hikers, walkers and triathletes as well -- pretty much anyone who is part of the endurance community. But does it mean anything? All smart endurance athletes know it is important to pay attention to their bodies, and it’s natural to wonder if sausage-like fingers are the symptoms of something gone wrong. This article focuses only on edema (swelling) due to exercise. There are other causes of edema that may require medical intervention: see your doctor if in doubt. The answer, as with many biological systems, is complicated. At the very least, hand-swelling is nothing more than an annoying response to exercise, but...

Thinking of going ketogenic? You’ll need extra salt.

Thinking of going ketogenic? You’ll need extra salt.

The ketogenic diet is growing in popularity these days, due to perceived benefits of weight loss, nutrient density and mental clarity. Commonly overlooked with this diet, however, is the resulting need for increased sodium consumption. As we have discussed many times before, the body’s hydration system operates on a ratio basis; not on a basis of absolute intake quantities. Thus, when it comes to something like blood pressure, the total amount of sodium you consume matters less than the amount of sodium relative to potassium. As SaltStick CEO Jonathan Toker, Ph.D. wrote about in a recent slowtwitch.com article, in attempts to lower blood pressure, it is often as effective to increase dietary potassium as it is to reduce sodium, because it is the balance that matters more. This same ratio-based lens is necessary when analyzing the effects of a ketogenic diet on the body. In this blog post, we discuss...
