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.

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...

Buccal Mucosa: Why your mouth is key to fast-acting electrolytes

Buccal Mucosa: Why your mouth is key to fast-acting electrolytes

SaltStick Fastchews owe their fast-acting power to the way the body absorbs electrolytes through the mouth. But what does that mean exactly? When you visit the product description page for SaltStick Fastchews, you will see several benefits, including quick absorption, good taste, and the absence of ingredients such as GMOs or artificial sweeteners. You will also see this bullet point: “Chewable tablets provide fast absorption through buccal mucosa (tissue in mouth).” If this bullet point gives you pause, you are not alone. In this blog post, we have provided more clarity into the science of buccal mucosa absorption so that you can better understand how our products work to keep you hydrated. Essentially, buccal mucosa absorption is the absorption of nutrients through the inner lining of the cheeks and tongue, and it represents the foundation of our Fastchew product design. Below, we expound on what this means to you as...

Sweating indoors vs. outdoors (and why it matters)

Sweating indoors vs. outdoors (and why it matters)

Indoors or not, hydration practices matter and can greatly impact your performance. Read on to discover the ways to mitigate dehydration when on the trainer. Across much of the world, winter has arrived along with colder temperatures that force many athletes indoors. Gone are the days of open-water swims and day-long bike rides, replaced by shorter, more intense efforts on the indoor trainer or treadmill. One thing that doesn’t go away? The sweating. As anyone who has completed even a single hard indoor workout knows, trainer or treadmill sessions can be brutal. And unless you are masochistic enough to set up your gear in a garage that exposes you to the winter temperatures, these workouts probably take place in a warm, humid environment. While this is great for escaping the winter blues, it is not much help when it comes to keeping cool.   Do you actually sweat more indoors?...
