Fueling for Exercise with Dysautonomia

SaltStick has helped endurance athletes compete at the highest levels for years, by making it easy to replace the full spectrum of electrolytes lost through sweat. Additionally, the hydration benefits provided by SaltStick products can assist patients suffering from Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), who are pursuing exercise as part of their dysautonomia treatment.
